Hijack rejoined and was present with the rest of the other students when Storm and Beast arrived at their school to let Cyclops know that he needed to be at the reading of Professor X's will. All of the teachers from the New Charles Xavier School decided to go via Magik's teleportation leaving David and the others behind.
With nothing else to do, the Stepford Cuckoos set up a training session in the Danger Room for the others against holographic versions of the Avengers. Hijack first tried to use his technopathic abilities against Iron Man's armor but with no luck.
He then took on the Hulk while the others engaged the rest of them, but this did not last very long. The program was shut down due to fellow teammate Triage's dislike of who they were fighting.
