(X-Men '92 II#1 - BTS) - After Professor Charles Xavier opened the Xavier Institute to the public, mutant twins Nicole and Claudette joined their older sister M and enrolled at the Xavier Institute. Nicole and Claudette, however, were trapped in the Penance form, presumably unbeknownst to the other students.

(X-Men '92 II#1) - Penance, Blink and other students attended Beast's class when mutant assassin Maverick came crashing through the classroom's window. Coming to warn the X-Men, Maverick fainted prompting Beast to dismiss his class.

(X-Men '92 II#6 (fb) - BTS) - In an effort to make sure the entire student body would fully recover from their encounter with Alpha Red, Charles Xavier grounded the entire student body, including Penance.

(X-Men '92 II#6) - Penance and Mondo were seen playing games while Jubilee and M bickered over them being grounded when Xavier, Chamber, Dead Girl and Artie Maddicks walked in. Xavier reminded his students to abide by his rules after which he left. The students were upset they couldn't attend the first Lilapalooza, a giant music festival celebrating mutants and music. Following a live feed from the festival, Vivisector witnessed the sudden disappearance of the X-Men when villainous Fabian Cortez overloaded mutant teleporter Lila Cheney. Shocked Vivisector immediately alarmed Jubilee and the students. Just then Xavier appeared, having sensed the disappearance himself he asked the students who wanted to join him on a "field trip".

When, in 2015's Secret Wars, the Multiverse was destroyed following the incursions of planets it appeared as if Reality-92131 was drafted onto Battleworld as the Westchester domain. All Earth-92131 profiles on the Marvel Appendix reflected that information, however, this has since been debunked with the news that the original X-Men: The Animated Series will receive a brand new season to pick up where the original series ended. As such the reality seen in two volumes of X-Men '92 (2015-2017) now have their own reality-designation. The X-Men '92: House of XCII 2022 series was inspired by both the animated series and Hickman's House of X run but is its own separate reality. Nearly thirty years after X-Men: The Animated Series first debuted the new season will appear on Disney+ in fall 2023.
