The lull in blood bank attacks didn't last long - shortly after an uneasy Sooraya Qadir suggested patrolling certain hospitals and blood banks, Barbara Morse provided information from her police contacts about an upcoming target. The X-Men attended, only to discover the Brotherhood of Mutants - with a noticeably absent Magneto and a more vicious attitude - were behind some of the attacks. Sooraya was almost choked to death by Toad during the fight and later revealed to Angel that she had a near-death visitation of their departed friend Yvette Petrovic.
Coming out of hiding briefly, Kevin Sydney arranged to say goodbye to Nina Thurman, who was deeply angry about the abandonment. Kitty Pryde, working in Chicago, posted to the journals to let folks know she missed New York and Rahne Sinclair asked Kyle Gibney to provide her with extra self-defence training, in light of her recent escapades with Generation X and in Limbo. Jean Grey and Garrison Kane found themselves on an all-night escapade as they tried to retrieve a bowling trophy stolen by frat boys from Harry's Hideaway.
Much of the month, however, was disrupted by a series of mysterious illnesses impacted various people associated with the mansion. It turned out to be the work of Adam Destine, still seeking to revenge himself on Topaz and her adopted father for the deaths of his siblings. After ambushing and defeating foster siblinf Amanda Sefton in London, Adam sent Topaz a message with her phone telling her he would stop hurting everyone else if she came to him, which she did. X-Force plus a group of magically inclined students - Clea Lake, Stephen Strange and Illyana Rasputin - came to the rescue after a message from Adam's sister Jasmine, but not before Topaz had undergone days of mental and physical torture. In the process of the rescue, Doug Ramsey and Wanda Maximoff were contaminated by Grace Destine's blood magic when she overloaded and exploded, while Nina and Marie-Ange Colbert were both seriously injured battling Adam, with Marie-Ange finally losing the eye her precognition had long predicted since her high school days. With Adam forced to flee with his own injuries, the curses were ended, with recovery for various individuals taking some time. Topaz herself realised that isolating herself had only made her miserable and didn't 'save' her friends, and she slowly began to reach out to others again.
