Upon Summerlands completion, Oliver and Cary began their pursuit for more mutants like themselves to fill the facility. Unfortunately, it was during this time that they encountered a mutant named Walter, who sought only to destroy everything they built and stood for. Since then, Summerland has fallen under the leadership of Oliver's wife, Melanie Bird. Although, Oliver had been trapped in the Astral Plane for twenty years, his presence within the community never ceased to be felt as his voice could be heard on the espresso machine and in the elevator.
- While Summerland does not appear in any of the Marvel Comics, it identically serves the same purpose of Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters.
