Following a series of nightmares, Clea Lake was sucked into a portal to the Dark Dimension, accompanied by Topaz, and discovered she was descended from a race of inter-dimensional ravagers called the Faltine and that her ‘uncle’, Dormammu wanted her for her powers. A rescue mission mounted by Amanda Sefton was successsful thanks to the last-minute intervention of the Ancient One, head of the Light side of the Winding Way and Sorcerer Supreme, whose duty it was to protect the earth from Dormammu. Topaz and Amanda were less than impressed by these revelations, and it was clear that the Ancient One had some kind of interest in their other student, Stephen Strange. At the same time, a relaxing trip away for Scott Summers, Kitty Pryde, Rogue and Logan resulted in some home-grown justice when they took sneaky action against some vandals who had destroyed their cabin.
The saga of the poison emerald continued, with Artie Maddicks uncovering a plan by the Sapien League to steal the emerald and use it to poison the mutants on the west coast of the US. Once the stone was located in a police station's property locker in LA, the various teams cooperated to track the emerald after it was stolen by the League back to their base, and then launched a recovery mission, capturing some of the League and scattering the rest. The emerald was hidden in an old CIA storage facility, whose location was provided by Kevin Sydney. It was also the first mission for Gen Xers Johnny Storm, Bobby Drake and Molly Hayes.
It was also a time for cerebration as Lorna Dane and Alex Summers got married. According to form, there was minor drama in the form of a visit from Lorna’s father Magneto and what turned out to be a false threat against several members of Congress and their families, however otherwise things went off without a hitch. Jubilation Lee abruptly ended her engagement with Kurt Sefton, citing the need to be able to disappear for work unencumbered. Needless to say, Kurt’s sister and Jubilee’s teammate, Amanda was extremely pissed off by the hurt done to her brother. Quentin Quire and Gabriel Cohuelo also ended their relationship in the wake of Quentin’s “resurrection” and utter lack of coping with that.
Finally, Hope Abbott had a weekend with her network of contacts that was part work, part relaxation.
