Banding together following M-Day, they decided to strike out at the government, sending a booby-trapped teddy bear to a US senator's home on Christmas.
Following this incident, they sought Quicksilver's aide in being re-powered so they could strike back more effectively. Seeking to use them for his own means, Quicksilver accepted, but only if they would find him a vessel, someone who he could use to channel his Terrigen-derived abilities through.
Later, Blob mistakenly entered into a conflict with Rictor and Multiple Man, and was then joined by Fatale. After a brief skirmish, Blob and Fatale fled in a stolen car. After hitting a pothole left open earlier in the day by Strong Guy and Wolfsbane, Fatale was thrown clear and Blob was left hanging out of the wrecked car. As Siryn and M confronted the duo, Marrow showed up, sporting bone growths from her forehead, but utilizing small knives. In the ensuing battle, Siryn was quickly injured by Marrow's wrist-mounted knives. While trying to stifle the injured Siryn, Blob was launched clear of the battle. Fatale was knocked unconscious by M. Unnoticed, Rictor was injured from a ricocheted bullet fired by Fatale. The fight ended with Siryn taking out Marrow as, still unnoticed, Rictor was dragged away by Reaper.
While searching for the X-Cell, Strong Guy and and Wolfsbane ran into Abyss who utilized technological whips to throw Strong Guy clear of the battle, Reaper who was trying to transport Rictor to Quicksilver's headquarters, and a knife-throwing Callisto. With Strong Guy thrown clear of the battle, Wolfsbane attempted to tell the X-Cell members what really happened on M-Day but was stopped by Quicksilver, who disabled her with just a touch.
Quicksilver then repowered Fatale, Abyss, Elijah Ross, Reaper, and Rictor. He offered to repower Marrow, but Callisto convinced her it wasn't a good idea (remembering her own experience with Pietro's repowering abilities). As an army of Madrox dupes launched an assault on Quicksilver's headquarters, the repowered members fought back until Elijah Ross suddenly exploded. As the other members began feeling a heat build-up, Abyss snagged Reaper and Fatale, thrusting them into his Brimstone dimension and following them.
Meanwhile, Callisto and Marrow learned of Quicksilver's role in the depowering of the world's mutants, holding off his future counterparts while Layla revealed the information. After an unseen counterpart managed to stab Marrow from behind, Callisto fled with her to the sewers. The final fate of the surviving X-Cell members is unknown.
