Synopsis
The X-Men finally learn what really happened on Krakoa with the original rescue team sent in by Charlie. When things went wrong and the team appeared to have died, Xavier wiped the minds of everyone involved. Xavier then shares Vulcan's origin story which Gabriel himself doesn't remember--how Katherine Summers was pregnant when she was abducted by the Shi'ar and then killed by Emperor D'Ken. The X-Men work as a team to battle Vulcan and are able to separate Darwin whom he had absorbed. Vulcan takes off for the stars to go after the Shi'ar. Cyclops kicks Xavier out of the mansion.

Synopsis
The students are in an uproar as it appears that a mind controlled Wolverine might be running loose on the mansion grounds looking for people to kill. Their worst fears are realized as the body of Northstar is found. Things get even worse as Elektra and the Hand break in and steal his body. Karma takes over Northstar's Alpha Squadron and tries to give them comfort, especially Victor who is taking the loss especially hard. The students attend a moving memorial service for their fallen teacher.
