Quentin Quire stunned everyone with his announcement that he had obtained his PI licence and was buying into X-Factor Investigations; a timely change, with Lorna Dane taking an extended absence. The group then got involved in investigating the tip given to them by Inez Temple of leaks within the Mutant Underground putting the organisation at risk.

X-Force also had a potential leak; in response to the abduction of a contact by John Sublime's U-Clinics, the group went on a low-tech road trip to Nevada before splitting into two groups. One group went to Burning Man to remove all trace of their existence from John Sublime's mind (and files) while the other went to Las Vegas to free Jasmine Destine, the unfortunate contact.

Clea Lake departed for Kamar-Taj to join Stephen Strange and Tandy Bowen decided to remain in Europe for the time being. And there were two new arrivals, care of a another X-Factor (and friends) mission: Ben Hammil and Madin.
