1. The Distraction.
In March, the Acolytes sent David Hartford "Remus" to the mansion solely as a
distraction from their current mission goals. David's only purpose was to cause
havoc. After his brief attack on the mansion, David was detained by Em Fieron in
the holding cells of the mansion.
2. Capture and
Convert. In late March, the X-men were deployed on a rescue mission led by Cat.
Lauren McCully had been captured by the Acolytes after being lured into a trap
by her sister, Leslie McCully, a former student at the Xavier Institute who
later became a Brotherhood member by joining the Acolytes. Lauren was captured
in order to gain intel on the new layouts of the Xavier Institute, which had
been recently reconstructed and renovated, as well as gain information on key
X-men members. Their secondary initiative was to convert Lauren to the
Brotherhood, as they had with her sister, Leslie. However, a team consisting of
Basis, Piotr Rasputin "Colossus," Shirina Elson "Ariel," Dorian Lynd "Fury,"
Izaak Shaw "Six-Pack," Veronica Fieron "V," Tara Snyder "Apparatus," and Joshua
Connors "Voltage" entered an Acolyte compound. After fighting off Jason Knight
"Obscurity" and Leslie McCully, the X-men were able to rescue Lauren McCully.
However, despite being physically injured, Lauren's biggest injuries were mental
- having been betrayed by her sister. Even though the Acolytes were unable to
gain any intel from Lauren, they were successful in at least damaging on X-men
