Dr. Cecilia Reyes
APOCALYPSE/EN SABAH NUR
For thousands of years, this mutant has tried time, and time again, to destroy all man
kind. He wants total control of a world created, and rulled by him, and only him. He is
one of the most powerful mutants around today. Some of his enemies include Angle, Cyclops,
and JeanGrey, and he has shown a rather absessive attraction to the Mutant Cable. This
attraction led to the cloning of Cable, and the creation of Strife. Strife would later
release the Legacy Virus killing hundreds of Mutants, before his own demise, and
Apocalypse's demise as well. For almost 4 years, there was no sign of Apocalypse, until he
was fully restored to his orginal state, during the Onslaught Saga, in 1995. Although his
appearances are rather scarce lately, it has been promised by the people of Marvel, that
his big reappearnce/new plan to rule the world will take place at the end of the
Millenium. With the year 2000, just around the corner, it won't be long before we see our
favorite blue villian again..
ANGEL/WARREN WORTHINGTON III
Formerly known as the wealthy and conceited Angel, whose mutant characteristics were most
notably feathered wings. His wings were damaged so badly during the Mutant Massacre that
they had to be removed. Apolcalypse then took Warren in and turned him into the angel of
death, Archangel, complete with metal wings and blue skin. After being seriously injured
by Sabretooth, his metallic wings were molted and revealed his original feathered wings
underneath. He is now a reserve member of the X-Men, along with his lover, Psylocke.
Banshee was originally recruited by Charles Xavier to join the new X-Men, before that he
was an Interpol agent, and then a petty thief. After the X-Men's encounter with Moses
Magnum, Banshee lost the use of his sonic scream powers and retired from the X-Men,
choosing to live on Muir Island with Moira MacTaggert. When the Reavers attacked Muir
Island, Sean Cassidy was healed by the Morlock Healer and he returned to action as
Banshee. He is now headmaster of Generation X, a position he shares with Emma Frost. His
daughter Theresa aka Siryn is also in the superhero bussiness, his cousin Black Tom is his
As brilliant in mind as he is powerful and agile in form, the Beast's intelligence and
sense of humor served him well through-out his years as a premier member of the X-Men.
Later while performing an experiment to cure him of his mutancy, he drank the formula,
turning into the big blue guy we know today. His powers then became increased while his
mind remained intact. Beast was once a member the Avengers, the Defenders, X-Factor and,
eventually returnedto the X-Men. As one of the world's foremost biochemists, Hank is
working with Moira MacTaggert to cure the Legacy Virus plaguing mutant-kind and now
human-kind, too. For a while, Beast was locked up, while his AOA counterpart, the Dark
Beast, was impersonating him. Beast escaped, while the Dark Beast had allied with
Onslaught, and later, the Brotherhood. He is currently dating news anchor, Trish Tilby.

The only member of the New Mutants to "graduate" to the X-Men, Cannonball is
having a tough time being the youngest and least experienced X-Man. Sam, who can blast
(fly) with a kinetic force field around him, has come a long way from his days helping his
family at the farm, and then the New Mutants, and later on X-Force. Cannonball was also
told by Cable that he was an External, one who is immortal and destined to become a High
Lord, after his "death" and "resurrection". But Selene of the Hellfire
Club, told Sam that he was not an External and that his "death" was simply set
up by Cable. The truth is yet to be resolved...
DR. CECILIA REYES
When Cecilia was just six years old her father died in her arms, which lead to her
decision to become a doctor. Then 3 years ago, Charles Xavier asked Cecilia to join the
X-Men but she refused. While interning at Our Mother of Mercy Hospital one of her patients
died and his Prime Sentinel programming kicked in. She was attacked and consequently saved
by Iceman. After OZT, she tried to return to her old life but to no avail, and was forced
to stay with the X-Men.
CHAMBER/JONOTHAN EVAN STARSMORE

the X-Men, the Acolytes, and Excalibur, he has now returned to the X-Men. His mother,
father, sister(Illyana), and brother(Mikhail) are all dead.
Scott Summers was only a child when his mother pushed him and his brother strapped on him,
to escape death at the hands of an alien space craft. The parachute he had caught on fire
and only because his mutant powers kicked in and he slowed their decent, they survived.
Cyclops went from orphanage, to orphanage, always being returned by would-be parents after
seeing his mutant power. Eventually, he was taken in by Professor Xavier, and became the
first X-Man. Over time he married Madelyne Pryor, and eventually Jean Grey and had a son
with his first wife Nathan(aka Cable). When Professor Xavier handed himself over to
federal authorities he was been left with the responsibility of commanding the X-Men on
his own. Recently, after being seriously injured during OZT, he decided to take a leave of
absence from the X-Men with Jean in Alaska.

cancer when the chemo- and radiation-therapy couldn't, but not without a cost, his
physical appearance. After leaving the program he became the merc, named Deadpool.
Deathbird can use her wings to fly but she seldom does. She is a skilled fighter and
trained most of the Shiar empire's Imperial Guards. Deathbird is also slightly crazy and
she stole the throne from her sister Lilandra for a period of time. She is now trapped in

brother aswell. He is also Generation-X's greatest foe. He was recently combined with his
two little sisters, whom were once M. Now they are all one entity.
Trevor Fitzroy came from a very wealthy family in the future. He´s actually a descendant
of the Shaw family. Trevor refused to be a member of the XSE, organization that Bishop and
Shard were member. Fitzroy had an affair with Shard, but them betrayed here, becoming a
criminal. Bishop spent many years of his life trying to capture him, coming back in time
to capture, but ending stuck here, thanks to Trevor one way portals. Fitzroy then became a
member of the Upstarts, but vanished for some time when X-Force and the New Warriors
defeated the villain team. He now reappeared after a battle with Selene, when he became
her slave, serving the Black Queen in the Inner Circle of the Hellfire Club.
A former thief, Gambit, also known as Remy LeBeau, is haunted by past crimes he has
committed. Gambit joined the X-Men in hopes that he could make up for his sins, and risked
his life almost daily just to do that. His mutant power, to charge any inanimate object
with kinetic energy, helped him in the battle of mutant rights along with his former
teammates. Finally winning the heart of fellow X-Man, Rogue, Gambit's conscience could not
take the guilt any longer. On "trial", by a man claiming to be Magneto, the
X-Men learned of his horrible past with Sinister, and his connection to the Mutant
Massacre. He was left to die alone in Antarctica, alone and without any resources to get
by. It will only be a matter of time before he finds his way back to the X-Men...
Gateway is one of the most mysterious characters in the X-Universe. The X-Men first met
them when they were faking their deaths in the Australian outback, in the Reaver´s base.
There, with no Black Bird, the team had to trust Gateway´s powers to travell through the
world. The mutant never spoke a word to any of the X-Men, but he seemed to have a way to
know where the person wanted to go, maybe through telepathy. In the Age of Apocalypse, the
aborigine spoke a lot, and we learned that he has a vast knowledge on history, maybe
because he lived it all as a X-Ternal (yes, this rumor exists). This mutant delivered
Penance to Generation X, assuming his part on the death of the Hellions, mutant killed by
Sentinels that crossed one of his portals. He also tried to help the X-Men on the attack
of Onslaught, wich signs that there is more on him that we know so far.
Alex and Scott Summers were orphaned at an early age, and Alex was adopted quickly unlike
Scott. When he grew up, Alex studied geology, and never took up the super-hero mantle
until he was kidnapped by the Living Pharaoh, for his mutant powers. Rescued by the X-Men,
Alex met Polaris and fell in love with her and retired as a superhero. During the Mutant
Massacre, Polaris was possessed by Malice and Havok became an X-Man until the team
journeyed through the Siege Perilous, after which a amnesiatic Havok, became a Genoshian
Magistrate. An encounter with Cyclops during the X-Tinction Agenda caused his memory to
come back, and he became the X-Factor team leader until the death of Multiple Man, when he
resigned as leader. Found by Polaris, Havok was possessed by Malice until freed by, Mr
Sinister. Havok started having problems controlling his mutant powers, and was captured by
Random. He was brainwashed and had his powers boosted by McCoy, then became part of
McCoy's rag-tag team. Recently, he confronted X-Factor and severely injured Polaris. After
a confrontation with Cyclops, he joined the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. It has been
recently revealed that he was actually undercover, and he has returned to X-Factor, and he
will be the new leader of the team.
Wanting to follow in her brother's footsteps, Paige Guthrie jumped at the chance to join
the next generation of X-Men. When she graduates Generation X, Paige hopes to take
leadership of the X-Men.
The youngest of the original five X-Men, Iceman's fun-loving, frivolous personality has
often stood in sharp contrast to his more driven teammates. Bobby always had the mutant
power to freeze the moisture in the air and project cold from his body. After the incident
with Krakoa, the living island, Bobby left but then returned with X-Factor. Eventually he
rejoined the X-Men with the rest of X-Factor. After a possession by the White Queen (Emma
Frost) Iceman realized he's more powerful than he ever dreamed and learned to control his
powers in much greater ways. Recently, he has shown signs of maturity and leadership
qualities. He is more or less struggling right now whether or not to be the joker of the
old X-Men days, or the more responsible, serious man he has grown to be. His relationship
with his father has also improved a lot, ever since Bobby's father stood up for mutant
rights and was beaten by Graydon Creed's men. More info????? He is my favourite
Joseph knows nothing about himself, well at least that's what he has everyone believing.
He used to think he was Magneto, but Maggott has come forward and told use that he is not.
Therefore nothing is really known about him except for he is a carbon copy of Magneto. The
only difference is that he isn't homocidal and he is much younger.
A Chinese-American, Jubilee earned money performing stunts with her mutant ability to
create "fireworks" in a Southern California mall , after the murder of her
parents. She later joined the X-Men after Rogue, Storm and Jean Grey rescued her from an
attack and took her to their Austrailian base. Recently Charles Xavier had her transferred
to the teenage mutant team Generation X. After she was captured by Bastion during Zero
Tolerance she escaped with the help of Daria, a human/machine hybrid of some sort that
worked for Bastion. She's now back with the Gen X team.
Longshot was created by Mojo to entertain his dimesnion, making Mojo the ruler there.
Longshot managed to escape to our dimension and joined the X-Men. But right after it was
revealed that this were a plan to atract the X-Men to Mojo´s dimension, so they could
help the audience go up. The X-Men won that day and Longshot remained with the team for a
long time. He left the team when they were in Australia so he could find his past. Some
months later, Longshot asked for help to his ex-girlfriend, Dazzler so they could save
Mojo World. They did, and Longshot started to rule the place. Some months ago, he helped
X-Force saving Cable and Shatterstar, who maybe is his son from the future.
He is the X-Men's single greatest foe. He has killed many, and he has removed Wolverine's
adamantium in the Fatal Attractions saga. He used to be known as Eric Lensherr, but that
name was just a fabrication. He was also thought to be Joseph for an extended period of
Living a life of pain and sorrow, Marrow is plain and simply angry at humanity for
"forcing" her to live in the sewers where most of her friends, the Morlocks,
were slaughtered by the Marauders. Having been saved from the massacre by Gambit, she
later went to another dimension, where she aged at a faster rate. Later returning to Earth
for a human killing spree, she was stopped by Storm, who was forced to rip her heart out
and "kill" her. After some time, it was revealed she had two hearts and survived
her "death". Apparently freed from her "demons", Marow has teamed up
with the X-Men to help fight mutant-hating prejudists. She is still as angry at all
humanity and unpredictable as before, however.
Kurt Wagner was found by Charles Xavier, when he was forming the New X-Men, and later
became the leader of Excalibur. He now carries his twin swords, coupled with his
teleportal ability, making Kurt a brilliant leader and combatant.
Little is known of Penance, other than the fact that for many years she had been held
captive by Emplate as food and that her first name is Yvette. She has never spoken,
possibly because she might be deaf and is possibly M's sister.
When Jean's best friend Annie was hit by a car and lay dying, Jean's powers first
manifested themselves and she read Annie's thoughts. Her parents then took her to Xavier
where she enrolled in the school. She met Scott Summers who eventually became her husband
(albeit, only a few years ago). Later on came the Phoenix saga. After escaping from some
sentinels in space, her shuttle was damaged and she was the only one who could survive the
cosmic rays. So she took the knowledge of the pilot and crashed it into a bay. Phoenix
appeared but with so much power she became corrupt with Mastermind's help. Then she joined
the Hellfire Club as the Black Queen. But it really wasn't Jean; it was a being who took
over her shape. Later the Fantastic Four found Jean's coccoon where she was healing the
whole time. When Jean awoke she found out Scott married another woman, Madelyne Pryor (who
was really a clone of Jean's) and had Scott's child (Cable). When Jean returned Madelyne
went insane and became the Goblin Queen. After Madelyne died Jean received all of the
Goblin Queen's memories and the Phoenix Force. She is now on a sabbatical with her husband
in Alaska where she is beginning to embrace her identity as Phoenix.
PROFESSOR X/CHARLES FRANCIS XAVIER
Charles Xavier, the creator and, in the past, the leader and mentor of the X-Men. As a
young man, he found that he had an unheard of ability, the ability to read and send
thoughts. Once in adulthood he chose to use his gift for the benefit of mankind. As a
doctor in Israel he met a woman with whom would carry his only child. Also in Israel he
befriended a man that would one day be known only as Magneto. Both of the men had separate
"dreams" of the future between man and mutant, so they went their separate ways
- always knowing that they would clash over their views in the end. His dream has become
both a religion and a way of life for many mutants. In the past he has had many enemies,
but none as difficult to defeat as himself. Once Xavier realized that he could not reason
with his former friend Magnus, he made a regretful attempt to destroy his foes mind. In
the process he absorbed the evil which possesed Magneto, thus creating within himself the
entity known as Onslaught. A long battle, which resulted in the apparent loss of many of
the world's heroes, to destroy the Onslaught entity had left Charles, without powers, in
the hand of the government, still being considered a threat. His location has not yet been
Betsy Braddock is a telepath, and twin-sister of Brian Braddock. She once stood-in for
Captain Britain and lost her eyes as a result of a battle with Slaymaster. She was
captured by Mojo and given bionic eyes, so when she was rescued by the X-Men Mojo would
see the X-Men through her eyes and have it broadcast back to Mojo World. Psylocke joined
the X-Men after helping them in a confrontation with Sabretooth, and after the Fall Of The
Mutants during which the X-Men "died", Besty emerged from the siege perilous in
the body of a ninja assassin named Kwannon, whilst Kwannon's consicousness ended up in her
body. Psylocke was rescued from the Mandarin by Wolverine, and re-joined the X-Men. During
a recent fight with Sabretooth she sustained life-threatening injuries and was healed by
the powers of the Crimson Dawn, which also granted her the power to.
Rogue, whose real name still has not been revealed after so many years, joined the X-Men
in an attempt to learn how to control her mutant powers, to absorb memories and powers of
others through skin-to-skin contact. Other powers, flight, super-strength and a
"sixth sense", aren't really hers, but those of the original Ms. Marvel,
absorbed while in a battle. Before joining the X-Men, Rogue was a member of the
Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, with her step-mother, Mystique. Still not able to control her
powers, Rogue is scared to have the slightest physical contact with anybody. After a few
years of building a relationship with former X-Man, Gambit, Rogue has squashed that idea,
after finding out about Gambit's past with Sinister.
Skin was born and raised in a violent neighborhood of South Central Los Angeles. Skin's
whole reason for being with Generation X is to learn how to look normal and reduce the
amount of migraines he gets every time he uses his powers. Unlike everyone else on
Generation X, Skin does not plan on joining the X-Men when he graduates. He was once a
gangsta, and he had to fake his death because of this, three of his friends died in a gang
SINISTER/NATHANIEL ESSEX/NATHANIEL MILBURY
Sinister is a dark evil mutant, he constantly experiments on mutants, and he has a
connection with the Summers family, also he was responsable for the mutant massacre.
As a child, Storm survived only by her skill to pick-pockets in the streets of Cairo. When
her mutant powers manifested, she was worshipped as a goddess by African natives.
Professor Xavier recruited her as one of the second-generation of X-Men, and she has been
with them ever since. With her powerful ability to control the weather - be it rain, wind,
snow, or lightning - courage, and compassion, Storm is the very capable leader of the
X-Men, while Cyclops is away. Currently, she is trying to deal with the newer, more
troublesome X-Men, namely Marrow - the Morlock she thought she had killed!
Synch is the most normal kid on Generation X. He has a regular family, regular past, a
crush on Jubilee, but is to shy to tell her his feelings, and has born leadership. The
only un-ordinary thing about him is his power. He has a power that, with the right
training, will make him be one of the most powerful mutants in the world.
WHITE QUEEN/EMMA FROST
Emma Frost is a mutant with incredibly powerful telepathic/psionic abilities. Emma can
telepathically disguise herself, making her appearance to those around her quite
different. Emma also has the ability to travel on the Astral plane and communicate with
Discovered in the Canadian wilderness, Wolverine was turned into a super-spy for the
Canadian government, with an adamantium enforced skeleton. His mind was infected with
events that never actually happened while in the Weapon X project. He went to the X-Men
for freedom and a just cause to fight for. Important events in his life with the X-Men
include the taking away (by Magneto) and attempting to put back (by Genesis) the
adamantium in his body. When the metal was being bonded to him from Genesis, he broke
free, but as a savage "animal". With Elektra's help, he's managed to learn to
gain better control of himself. And despite what's happened, Wolverine is still a loyal
member of the X-Men, and just as dangerous as ever.
Nate Grey was genetically engineered by Sinister to become the most powerful mutant in the
world. Nate has recently learned that the limitless psi-power that he wields is also
destroying him, for no human was meant to contain such power, certainly not a teenager.His
powers include telekinesis and he can levitate objects, fly, and project blast of kinetic
energy. But his powers are killing him.
