As the fallout from Zemo settled, new rumbles began, this time in the form of a series of ritual murders in which the victims matched in some way those Xavier's alumni who had been kidnapped to Asgard several years previously. Fearing another incursion by the Enchantress, Doug, Marie-Ange and a still-shaky Amanda went to investigate, but were captured by a group of neo-Lokian cultists attempting to bring about Ragnorak and the return of Loki. The rescue was short and bloody, but not without casualties; soon after Amanda left for Beaumont-les-Bains, the French town that had proven to be a place of peace of Remy, in hopes she would be able to decide if she was fit for X-Force. Angelo had his own brush with doubt as an Elpis trip to Kyrgyzstan resulted he and Nathan's brush with dreams come true when they discovered a mutant whose powers allowed him to trap individuals in a version of their perfect life. He joined Amanda in France and the pair decided to return to their existing lives, dreams notwithstanding.

The X-Men faced the harsh realities of their calling when an ambush by the Brotherhood of Mutants brought down the Blackbird and the team of trainees and younger X-Men who had been answering a standard new student pick-up call. Tortured for information on Cerebro that did not exist, the group managed to escape, but Forge was severely injured whilst trying to distract Nimrod from Wildchld, Siryn and Jan. They were picked up in the nick of time, but the Brotherhood escaped and all four spent time recovering from the ordeal, some more successfully than others, while Kurt left in order to seek out answers from his mother, Mystique. However, despite this, two new trainees joined the team, Alex and Monet.
