    After M-Day
    After M-Day

    Most of the students, except a handful, lost their powers after the events of M-Day, and was sent home and the squads was disbanded.

    Only one new-formed group - the New X-Men is currently being trained by Emma Frost.

    The New X-Men in training are currently: Surge, Hellion, Mercury, Dust, Rockslide and X-23.

    After the dealings with Belasco also Anole and Pixie was added to the team.

    The students retaining their powers and are as follows:

    Anole, Blindfold, Bling!, Dust, Elixir, Ernst, Hellion, Armor, Icarus, Indra, Martha Johansson, Loa, Match, Mercury, Gentle, Onyxx, Pixie, Quill, Rockslide, the Stepford Cuckoos, Surge, Trance, Wallflower, Wither, Wolf Cub and X-23

    Most of those remains at the Xavier Institute except for Wither who left, and Icarus, Quill and Wallflower who has been killed by William Stryker and his men.

    Kid Omega is contained at the Institute and has retained his powers but as he has evolved to a higher state of being, he is no longer a student at the Institute.

    Glob Herman also retains his powers though he is currently in jail.

    Angel Salvadore, Beak, Radian, Redneck, Tattoo and Wind Dancer are all de-powered, but active in the newest incarnation of New Warriors with new code-names and artificial powers. For more on that see: New Warriors.

    Prodigy is de-powered, but still stays at the Xavier Institute.

    Of the de-powered students forty-two died when William Stryker and his men blew up the bus they were on.

    The following students are confirmed to have died in the explosion:

    DJ, Dryad, Network, Rubbermaid and Tag.

    Being formed

    Emma Frost summoned all remaining students with powers to meet her in the Danger Room, in costume. There they have to battle each other, the winners creating a new X-Team. Wallflower, Gentle, Blindfold and Ernst were excused from the battle. The winners were Dust, Elixir, Mercury, Rockslide, Surge, Hellion and X-23, although Emma did try to ignore the fact that X-23 was a winner, Cyclops told her different, and X-23 became a member.

    Grieving & fighting the Purifiers

    During their next arc, Crusade, the New X-Men are in the training room, attempting to knock over Colossus. Still fueled by the rage of Wallflower’s death, Elixir hits Colossus in the back of the head while he’s in human form with a metal bar. Emma grabs him in diamond form by the neck and throws him off the team, threatening that if he ever pulls a stunt like that again, she’ll erase every happy memory he has. Icarus asks Dust to meet him at an address, but is actually a set up. X-23 realises this, and takes Dust’s place, and kills the Purifiers. Elixir then kills Stryker, driving into a temporal state of insanity.

    When William Stryker invades the Xavier Institute later in the arc, Dust, Mercury and Rockslide take on several Purifiers. As Hellion and Surge battle more Purifiers with Emma, X-23 enters and kills the Purifiers they were battling.

    More grief & Nimrod

    When Ms. Marvel comes to talk to the X-Men about Jay’s death, the New X-Men use X-23 to eavesdrop on their conversation, and they manage to figure out that Jay was trying to warn them out Nimrod. Cyclops ignores their warning and goes to Storm’s wedding. When Surge is awoken by a message from Forge warning that Nimrod is in Eagle Plaza. The New X-Men, plus a depowered Prodigy, fly to Texas to save Forge. The team battle Nimrod and Prodigy is able to fight using guns brought by X-23. Nimrod obliterates Rockslide, and for a while, he doesn’t reform. Forge tells the New X-Men that it’s possible to overload the time device inside Nimrod, sending him to another time. X-23, Mercury and Surge manage to this, but X-23 is gravely injured. Hellion manages to contact Emma telepathically, and she removes the “safeties” off Hellion’s telekinesis. He manages to fly X-23 from Texas to Westchester quickly, but has to lift a lorry in front of him to try and protect himself from the air currents. Hellion forces Elixir to save X-23, which he does, forcing out of his insanity. Rockslide is also reformed in this time, except is now craggier.

    Captured team mate

    After an issue of rest, Mercury over hears Emma telling X-23 to leave the Institute. Mercury realises that X-23 fancy’s Hellion, and both go to get coffee and talk. Mercury and X-23 have a heart-to-heart over coffee, but X-23 realizes that they’re about to be ambushed, and the café explodes. Several members of The Facility appear, as well as Kimura, X-23’s handler. X-23 and Mercury take down several of the members, but X-23 offers herself up. At that point, Kimura reveals that they aren’t there for X-23, they’re there for Mercury. Next, Mercury is loaded into a van after being taken down by Kimura, while X-23 and Kimura skirmish. The Facility members escape and X-23 returns to the Institute. While Hellion is searching for Mercury, he finds X-23, covered in blood, getting ready to go and get Mercury back. Hellion insists on going with her, and while she refuses at first, he flies both of them out of the Institute, breaking a hole through the roof. The two go and shake down X-23’s contacts, including Owl, Mercury is tortured endlessly, as the Facility attempts to cut a living piece of the mercury that makes up her body. They manage to do so, and replicate it. They put it on mutant hunting animals, to increase their strength, speed etc (this is how Predator X is created). X-23 and Hellion arrive to save her, and as they escape up top, the X-Men and the ONE arrive to help. For next arc, please see Quest For Magik.

    Children of the X-Men & Messiah Complex

    Nessiah Complex
    Nessiah Complex

    The X-Men organize several meetings to get to know the New X-Men. Beast takes care of the injured in the med lab, while Mercury goes around the school, asking how old the students are. Indra is revealed to be the youngest mutant. Rockslide and Anole (now a new member along with Pixie) mess about, and David and Surge break up.

    In Messiah Complex, the New X-Men (minus Dust, Elixir and David plus Armor) go to take down the Purifiers after hearing about the incident in Alaska. After gaining entry to one of their churches, Hellion is stabbed through the chest by Lady Deathstrike, and is gravely injured. Pixie tries to teleport them out of there, but they end up being scattered between the Institute and Washington. Iceman rounds them up, X-23 joins X-Force and they all take part in the final battle on Muir Island. The X-Men are then temporarily disbanded by Cyclops, and New X-Men ends at issue #46.
