Several big changes come out of this story:
- Storm develops claustrophobia after being buried alive in the sewer.
- Callisto loses an eye and leaves Xavier's.
- Angel loses his wings and also leaves Xavier's.
- Quicksilver has his legs broken (although they heal quickly).
- Codec dies (but returns as an AI).
- Gambit, who aided in the attack, turns himself over to SHIELD and will later get assigned to the new Thunderbolts program.
