December was a busy month for the teams. The X-Men assisted Cecilia Reyes in an investigation into drug gangs destroying mutant health clinics in Honduras, during which Cecilia was forced to take Rave herself to save herself from the gang's leader. X-Factor Investigations looked into the unsolved murders of several homeless mutants, obtaining information from a mysterious one-eyed woman and narrowly surviving a showdown with the killer. X-Force went undercover on a luxury cruise liner operated by former Genoshan elements and mercy killing the ship's power source, a mutate who could no longer function outside of the engine and who was in constant agony. The Magistrates were left to their own fate in lifeboats with an approaching storm, and Carmilla Black and Amanda Sefton took the surviving mutates back to Genosha to have the procedure reversed. Cammie stayed in Genosha for long-term information gathering in the wake of the changes M-Day had created.
Generation X had their own excitement, helping with a multiple car pile-up while on the way back from a field trip, and then the arrival of new students - five clones of Emma Frost rescued from Canada where they had been part of a clandestine Weapon X project. "Fourteen", as the group mind was referred to, was not terribly impressed. Maya Lincoln-Lopez and Xavin Majesdane's roommate relationship imploded in dramatic fashion after one misunderstanding too many, with Monica Rambeau volunteering to be the volatile Maya's new roomie while Xavin moved in with Clea Lake. Another relationship ended, albeit much more quietly, when Doreen Green, struggling to cope with the death of Monkey Joe and the various changes in the year since the destruction and resurrection of the universe, broke up with Kyle Gibney and left for California for school.
