As the two teams are battling, the X-Men show up and send them home. Kevin is cleared of all charges and returned to the school. He decides to switch to the Hellions as they came to his defense. Jay transfers to the New Mutants. David and Sofia become co-leaders of the squad. Josh starts a secret relationship with Rahne.
