Xavier Institute alum, Everett Thomas returned to the school, recuperating from a disastrous SHIELD mission and the deaths of his team. Reed Richards, at the behest of his friend, Susan Storm, made an appearance on the journals. And Doreen Green left for school in California, breaking up her relationship with Kyle Gibney in the process.

The Morlock situation came to a boiling point, with Callisto requesting the help of those she knew at the mansion when she discovered that a radical branch of her people, the Tunnellers, were launching an attack on Penn Station. Aware that they needed proof of the attacks on the Morlocks, X-Force recruited X-Factor to assist Tarot and Cypher in shutting down the Sapien League at a medical clinic, while the rest of the team faced down the Tunnellers and stopped the bombing at the station. It was a messy situation for all concerned, and afterwards X-Force went on sabbatical at a ski lodge for ten days to recover. Callisto, found guilty of "betraying" Morlocks to outsiders, was banished, with her second in command Sunder taking on the leadership role.

As another example of why Amanda Sefton should never take a vacation, while she was in the mountains, her magic students took it upon themselves (along with their schoolmates) to intervene when they witnessed the abduction of a child by something otherworldly. Putting together what they had witnessed with the disappearances of a number of children over the past month - Miles Morales' friend Ganke Lee included - they (and Spider-Man, who suddenly appeared on the scene) plunged into a portal to the Askew World, where they found a "nest" universe containing the stolen children, on their way to becoming Slenderchildren, followers of the Slendermen. In over their heads, the group were holding off the Slenderchildrens' attacks when Maya Lincoln-Lopez abruptly changed sides, influenced by the dark dimension. Luckily, Clea Lake had left Topaz a voice mail message before leaving, and it was a very grumpy TA, plus the X-Men, who appeared in time to get them out, with Maya having to be knocked unconscious and both Bobby Drake and Rahne Sinclair deeply disturbed about their discovery of new applications for their powers.

X-Factor continued their investigation into Hope Abbott's firing, but while they were able to tie things to Hammer Industries, they had no proof and Sue and Julian Keller were left to plan their next move.
