Two relationships - Wade Wilson and Marie-Ange Colbert, and Vanessa Carlysle and Warren Worthington - began, while another - Julian Keller and Nico Minoru - ended rather dramatically following an accident during her powers during sex. Jean Grey and Amanda Sefton consulted each other on the matter and redoubled their efforts to help Nico control her draining abilities. Prom was organised and there was an impromptu birthday party at Finnegans for Doug Ramsey and David Haller, both notorious for forgetting the event. Amara Aquilla moved out of the mansion to share an apartment with Callie Betto in District X and Wade continued to gain the trust of the newest student, Matt Murdock, by taking him for a visit to Matt's mother's grave. Towards the end of the month, Wade left for Muir Island, for followup treatment of his leukemia in the wake of his failed chemotherapy at the mansion.
The X-Men had one of their stranger missions, investigating a Kick smuggling ring and mutant exploitation in the roller derby circuit, resulting in various X-Women learning to skate, another wager with Arcade, Janet Van Dyne feeling up a biker's moustache and Bobby Drake's history as the 1997 Massachussets Under 14 Year Old Roller Dancing Champion being shamelessly used.
X-Force, struggling to continue without Remy LeBeau, found themselves chasing a Russian supersoldier myth in the form of the Winter Soldier after David North failed to check in. In a surprise twist, all indications pointed to Bucky Barnes, the grumpy old man who lived in the brownstone being the Winter Soldier, especially after he convincingly beat up Doug and Wade, but the man himself later cooperated with X-Force and confirmed the weaponised former CIA agent was in fact his adopted daughter, Rebecca Barnes. Wade was called in to assist in her capture, given the lack of manpower, and enjoyed himself far too much.
The New Mutants continued their habit of getting into trouble, with an accidental haunting resulting in a crash course in money raising and various odd behaviours; while Artie Maddicks continued to meet his adoptive mother, Annalee in secret, with her growing increasingly concerned about his safety at the mansion, given his stories. Angelo Espinosa was also disturbed to discover Molly Hayes' parents had connections to the Brotherhood of Mutants.
Following her contributions as 'Riley Chase' during the brothel investigation, Crystal Amaquelin discussed the possibility of Riley becoming a part of the team.
