|2003 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006 | 2007 | 2008 | 2009 | 2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2013 | 2014|
September proved to be a month of departures. Johnny Gallo, after a somewhat dramatic visit home, reonciled with his father enough to return to New York to care for him in his convalescence. Sarah Vale's unhappiness at being seperated from her twin increased to the point her parents decided to bring her home and Victor Borkowski's mother fell seriously ill enough for him to go home also, devastating Doreen Green, who had quite the crush on him. Noriko Ashida did well enough in school and with her powers that her parents decided to attempt to re-assimilate to Japan. Danielle Moonstar relocated to Attilan to work on her powers away from those she cared about and felt she could hurt and Nathan Dayspring became the CEO of Elpis, taking over from Joel Rollins and relocating the office to larger premises in New York.
Following Shiro Yoshida's breakdown and near-destruction of Japanese landmarks as part of a conspiracy by the Hand and his cousin the Silver Samurai, Shiro, Jean-Paul Beaubier and Jeanne-Marie Beaubier relocated to Muir Island. Shiro was to receive therapy for his psychosis, while Jean-Paul would continue his own treatment and he and Jeanne-Marie would work on their recovered powers.
Jean Grey, Scott Summers and Forge went to the West Coast Annex at Charles Xavier's behest, to assist in forming a new team there. Their departure, as well as that of Shiro and Nathan, did leave a hole in the X-Men, but the new generation stepped up with Yvette Petrovic becoming a trainee (with the codename of 'Knuckles'), Crystal Amaquelin considering a role as a medic with the team and Sam Guthrie being reinstated.
X-Force lost members too in the wake of their Russian mission. Jake Gavin left, as was typical, unable to handle the emotional turmoil of his relationship with Wanda Maximoff or the end of the one with Jean-Paul, plus the regular danger the team faced. David North went deep under cover in Europe, a potential target of retaliation. Remy LeBeau returned, ending Amanda Sefton's powers glitch and Mark Sheppard was reassigned out of the Snow Valley Memorial Center for Mutant Affairs offices in order to focus more on the mutant underground.
Garrison Kane and Adrienne Frost went on their first date. Amanda and Angelo Espinosa broke up amicably under the demands on their respective jobs. Inez Temple and Julian Keller decided on the time-honoured "friends with benefits". There was a reshuffle of teachers to cover the departures, and Alexander Lexington became the new co-self-defence teacher with Callisto. Tabitha Smith took on the position as mentor to the New Mutants, celebrating with a trip to the amusement park.
