[[folder: Emma Grace Frost / White Queen]]

!!'''Emma Grace Frost/White Queen'''

First appeared as a villainess who tended to underdress for the occasion. Currently, she's a heroine with less than heroic tendencies, and still likes to underdress. Has (or had; she killed one) two mutant sisters, and a gay brother who went insane after their father had him institutionalized.

* AbusiveParents: Her father was cold and emotionless and encouraged his children to play mindgames with each other. Her mother was a neglectful drug abuser.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Many animated adaptations take away Emma's more [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] personality traits. Rearranging her backstory, often giving her a HiddenHeartOfGold among other positive qualities.
* AntiHero: UnscrupulousHero [[BaseBreaker or]] NominalHero.
* TheAtoner (in ''Generation X'', and newly focused on by Creator/JossWhedon)
* {{Badass}}: Emma Frost is easily one of the most powerful mutants on the team.
** BadassBookworm
** CulturedBadass
** PopCulturedBadass
* BattleCouple: with Cyclops, a relationship which lasted more than 10 (real world) years before they broke up.
* BastardGirlfriend: The White Queen's entire deal.
* BettyAndVeronica: Veronica for Cyclops.
* BigBad: One of several in the original run of ''NewMutants''.
* BlondesAreEvil: More intensely during her Hellfire Club days.
* BreakTheCutie: Her [[FreudianExcuse retconned]] backstory qualifies.
* BreakoutCharacter: Easily the most prominent and popular 21st century addition to the X-Men.
* BrokenAce / BrokenBird / TroubledButCute: Again, depending on the writer.
* [[ByronicHero Byronic Heroine]]: Rare female example, but DependingOnTheWriter, it can be well done or extremely disturbing.
* CainAndAbel: She and her sister, Adrienne.
* ColdBloodedTorture: One of her favorite psionic experiences is inducing extreme levels of pain, often in people already held captive. She has continued to violate and traumatise people over the years, frequently in combination with SmugSuper {{One Liner}}s.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: She will make you do some really weird things using telepathy: for example, 48 hours of uncontrollable vomiting upon hearing the word "parsley".
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: At one point, she was in the Hellfire Club.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Her father was cold, uncaring, sadistic and physically abusive, her mother was a neglectful drug user, her older sister was identical to their father, and her younger sister couldn't care less about her. The only family member who cared about her became a drug addict (thanks to his father's horrible treatment to him), and when she thought things would be better to her, her friend was killed in front of her, another friend was a bitch who manipulated her, and her LoveInterest dumped her because she was a mutant. She also used to enjoy torture, mind-rape, followed by setting hunting dogs on the nightly victims (yes, really), corporate corruption, manipulation, deceit, and forcing opponents to kill themselves during her villain years. Shaw required her to help killing her two best friends to become White Queen.
* DeadpanSnarker: It makes her appear even colder at some points.
* DependingOnTheWriter: Scott Lobdell's version had almost nothing in common with the CorruptCorporateExecutive supremacist MindRape ColdBloodedTorture fetishist that she used to be. Instead, she became a excellent teacher doing genuinely good actions while [[GoodFeelsGood feeling good about it]]. However, later in ''GenerationX'', she was strongly hinted to have murdered a police officer looking into her sister's death (at Emma's hands). GrantMorrison and some other writers returned her closer to her roots again, according to some it made her more interesting, but played her as a complete [[TheHedonist hedonistic]] JerkAss, which sat badly with those who were introduced to her through ''Generation X'', because it put all the CharacterDevelopment she had during seven years in a trash bin. Later other writers attempted to either return her to the less extreme portrayal or attempt to integrate the two.
* DefrostingIceQueen: She is in no danger of defrosting completely anytime soon. Since she was already defrosting in the ''{{Generation X}}'', but then Morrison reverted her into even more of an ice queen than when she was a villain, any defrosting now still seems like a regression. However, in some chapters, she seems to be [[{{Chickification}} melting]].
* DependingOnTheWriter: A BrokenBird with a SugarAndIcePersonality, [[TheAtoner trying to atone for her past sins]] and [[IJustWantToBeLoved just wanting to be loved]], or an amoral JerkSue SadistTeacher with no sense of ethics who [[MoralMyopia is praised for]] being a textbook extreme [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] serial-rapist, torture-fetishist, supremacist, and otherwise all-around BastardGirlfriend? Basically, the answer seems to be that she has been portrayed as two (three, four...) entirely different types of people over the years.
* DyeHard: Her natural hair color is brown.
* EvilFeelsGood (More intensely during the Hellfire Club days, but DependingOnTheWriter, still maintains similar patterns).
* EvilMentor: Sebastian Shaw
* EvilPaysBetter (Hellfire Club days)
* EvilTeacher (Hellfire Club days)
* FireWaterJuxtaposition: Used to contrast her with Jean when she first enters Scott's life. Emma is constantly associated with ice and the cold because of her surname "Frost", her [[WomanInWhite all-white attire]] and her cool temperament, and she resembles an ice sculpture when in her organic diamond form; Jean is constantly associated with fire and warmth because of her red hair, her codename "Phoenix" and her unpredictable temper, and her psionic powers frequently manifest as flames.
* FreakyFridayFlip: Pulled off one with Storm in her Hellfire Club days, in an attempt to destroy the X-Men from within.
* TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry: Her father had her compete with her sisters for the right to be his heir (her brother had the good sense to stay out of it. Consequently, he was the sibling she was closest to). Her rivalry with her eldest sister, Adrienne, became so bad that it eventually went [[CainAndAbel fatal.]]
* GoodFeelsGood: In a number of occasions, she had expressed how much she was trying to be a good person and liked to do "the right things". She does have a bad conscience though, enjoys earning approval from Scott, and has been praised for a number of good deeds, although recurrently [[ShootTheDog a bit extreme]]. However, she seems to enjoy earning approval from Scott, and some of her teammates or students.
* GuiltComplex: As explicitly stated on ''Astonishing X-Men'' #18.
** BeAllMySinsRemembered
* TheHedonist: DependingOnTheWriter.
* [[HeroWithAnFInGood Heroine With An F In Good]]: Occasionally improves.
* HeelFaceTurn: After a fashion. It's kind of funny, she just sort of "fell into" hanging with the X-men. She was comatose for a long while and in their care, and revived right in the middle of the big Phalanx mega-crossover. She escaped with the rest of the X-men and, having nowhere else to go, just wound up helping them.
* HyperAwareness
** LivingLieDetector: She doesn't even need to use her powers to do it.
* JerkAssWoobie: Her [[TearJerker background]] makes her qualify for this, and in addition Emma lost all of her students ''three times'', was the sole survivor of a massacre that killed more than 14 million people, and struggles with herself a lot for her past (and present) morally questionable acts.
* JerkJustifications: Emma was originally presented as a textbook sociopath, somebody extremely inclined towards being very bad, who has no illusions about the "severe warts on her soul", on-off trying to learn how to be good, and stumbling along the way a lot. [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold But despite her aloof behavior and extreme methods, she genuinely cares about the mutant race and her students.]]
* KarmaHoudini: She used to torture captive people to death for sexual gratification. Yet isn't serving multiple life-sentences. She ''pays'' in occasional bad conscience for some of the many horrible things she does, and the tragedies of losing her students, but it's never enough to make her stop doing very morally objectionable things.
* KindheartedCatLover: Well, maybe not exactly kindhearted, but she's a cat lover...
* KnightTemplar: She's incredibly ruthless, brutal, and uncompromising, but she's fiercely protective of her students and allies and is greatly invested in helping mutantkind advance and have a better tomorrow. She's just FAR less touchy about using extreme force to achieve her goals and deal with anyone who tries to harm her or those she has sworn to protect.
* LightFeminineAndDarkFeminine: Invoked. She always wears a white costume whereas Selene, the Black queen, usually wears a black verion of it.
* MamaBear: Seriously, do NOT threaten her students. ...On the other hand, originally (as per the Firestar mini) she regularly tortured them when dissatisfied with their progress or wanted to get a point across. She is currently trying to be a better teacher, however, but is still not above occasionally violating them if she deems it necessary, such as the Elixir case. In her defense, Elixir had just attacked Colossus, one of her [[http://i45.tinypic.com/xdi0zs.jpg best friends]], and others X-Men had done worst threats to their own students.
* ManipulativeBitch: Even after the HeelFaceTurn
* MeaningfulName: In her villain days, she wasn't really evil in an "ice queen" manner, and in fact outwardly played the role of a benevolent friendly and somewhat nerdy headmaster, so "Frost" didn't really mean anything until Morrison decided it did. Post-Morrison, her surname also serves to highlight the OppositesAttract nature of her relationship with Scott ("'''Frost'''" and "'''Summer'''s"--get it?).
* MindRape: [[MoralMyopia She thoroughly loves this trope.]]
* MostCommonSuperpower: Frost is one of the very few superheroines known to have breast implants.
* MsFanservice: Emma Frost gets quite a few scenes where she's wearing even less than usual.
* NighInvulnerable: She eventually gained a "secondary mutation" that lets her shapeshift into a form that is living diamond. This makes her extremely difficult to hurt, but disables her PsychicPowers until she reverts to her fleshy form.
* OddFriendship: with Wolverine. Also a FanPreferredCouple.
** In a ironic twist, out of all the NewMutants, she has the most relaxed friendship with Sam Guthrie.
* OfCorsetsSexy (Hellfire Club days)
* PayEvilUntoEvil: Takes this attitude towards many things.
** DisproportionateRetribution: Towards plenty of regular people who have simply somewhat annoyed her.
* PetTheDog: She has turned very loyal to her students, genuinely loved Cyclops; and although she started out heavily into rape, torture, bondage, brainwashing, and slavery, [[MoralMyopia she was later shown as extremely opposed to the real-world variants]].
* {{Pride}}: Even post HeelFaceTurn she's rather arrogant.
* ProgressivelyPrettier: In-universe example: she was HollywoodHomely in her teenage years, but has made several plastic surgeries to look beautiful.
** Frost is one of the few comic book characters to [[MostCommonSuperPower admit that she's had breast implants]].
* PsychicAssistedSuicide
* PsychicPowers: which she can't use when in her NighInvulnerable mode.
* RichBitch: Even post HeelFaceTurn.
* SecondLove: She was Cyclops's second longest lasting girlfriend after Jean Grey, but alas, it didn't work out in the end.
* SmugSuper: Her problem is that she's good and she knows it.
* SourOutsideSadInside
* SoProudOfYou: To Kitty in ''Giant Size Astonishing X-Men'' #1 and Hisako in the anime.
* SpotlightStealingSquad (seems to get more attention in the comics now, than women who've been in the team far longer).
* {{Stripperific}}: Especially on the infamous Greg Horn covers.
** She does it on purpose as a way of making it easier to distract and manipulate men; as far as she's concerned, it's just another way of automatically putting the ball in her court.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: During ComicBook/GenerationX, beneath her aloof and apathetic behaviour, Emma was a tortured soul who [[IJustWantToBeLoved just wanted to be loved]] and [[IJustWantToHaveFriends trusted by her teammates]]. This was carried over by some writers in later X-Books.
* SurvivorGuilt: Due to being the sole survivor of the Genosha massacre.
* TeamMom: To her students at least.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Subverted or played straight, DependingOnTheWriter.
* VillainBallMagnet: Emma struggles to fight her darker urges, and on a few occasions she gives in.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Her relationship with certain other X-women.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: She genuinely seeks to help mutantkind and protect her students, but has some serious flaws in the way she goes about it.
* WomanInWhite: Her defining visual characteristic, in contrast to Selene's WomanInBlack.
* WorkingWithTheEx: Keeps being a part of the Cyclops-led faction of the x-men even after they broke up.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Type A.

[[folder: Neal Shaara / Thunderbird III]]

!!'''Neal Shaara/Thunderbird III'''

* IBelieveICanFly: Using the "superheated air" trick. He leaves a very visible fire trail behind him, which lent itself to problems during stealth missions.
* LegacyCharacter: And one that doesn't make much sense, either. The Indian from India with fire powers is named after the Native American Indian with super strength, speed, and endurance...?
** Apparently it was a last minute name swap. There were originally plans to name him Agni (after the Hindu god of fire), but then editorial realized naming a fictional hero after a god still worshipped by one of the world's largest faiths might result in... issues.
* LoveTriangle: Directly involved in the break-up of Psylocke and Archangel.
* NaiveNewcomer: Who later became a [[TheMentor mentor]] to two ''other'' naive newcomers, despite still being the new guy himself!
* PlayingWithFire: Solar plasma, technically, but it amounts to the same thing in practice. Only more so.
* PutOnABus: After the events of ''X-Treme X-Men'''s second arc, he and Lifeguard set to WalkingTheEarth in search of her brother. They've only been seen a handful of times in the last eight years, even though they're two of the mutants who explicitly kept their powers after M-Day.

[[folder: Tessa / Sage]]

!!'''Tessa/Sage'''

* AntiHero: Type IV
* AndIMustScream: Her fate at the end of her stint with the Comicbook/{{Exiles}} was... unpleasant. [[spoiler:She comes out of it in the pages of ''X-Treme X-Men'' volume 2]].
* AscendedExtra: Tessa made her first appearance in the "DarkPhoenixSaga" as Sebastian Shaw's assistant and was revealed to be a much more important character later.
* AwesomeByAnalysis
* BadassBookworm: In terms of combat prowess, she is canonically considered to be ''more dangerous than Wolverine''.
* BloodKnight: At times in her mercenary career.
* CombatStilettos: A prerequisite for any ex-Hellfire female.
* ComboPlatterPowers: Sage has a mind that works like a computer and can jump-start the mutations of those with the mutant gene but no powers (or activate the "secondary mutations" of powered mutants, which are often unrelated to their original powers, placing them in this trope's territory). And telepathy that she rarely uses, despite being nearly on par with Emma Frost.
** The reason she never uses her telepathy is because she turns it all inward to bolster her psychic defenses. Her ability to resist telepathy when she does this is second to none.
* EmotionlessGirl
* MissionControl
* NoNameGiven: Sage is yet another X-Man to not have a full name. Tessa is believed to be a part of her name, but it is unknown as to whether this is her first name, last name or even just an alias.
* OfCorsetsSexy: She used to wear corsets when she was in Hellfire Club.
* PhotographicMemory
* SociopathicHero: In her flashback sequences
* SuperEmpowering
* {{Technopath}}

[[folder: Jean-Paul Beaubier / Northstar]]

!!'''Jean-Paul Beaubier/Northstar'''

* AntiHero: Type II
* BadassGay
* BrotherSisterTeam
* CaptainEthnic: Captain Gay AND [[CanadaEh French Canadian]]!
* ChickMagnet: He was a huge hit with the ladies early in ''Alpha Flight''. Funny how that turned out.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* LightEmUp
** LightIsNotGood: Has gone KnightTemplar a few times, most notably during his time under HYDRA. Even after the HeelFaceTurn[s] he's still a jerkass.
* RapidFireFisticuffs
* SaltAndPepper: After Northstar moved to San Francisco, he found himself a new boyfriend who is [[TwoferTokenMinority a black guy and a homosexual]].
* SuperSpeed: And he saw no problem using it to win the gold in the Olympic ski jump.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Whether it's because of their history together or the fact that neither of them is exactly Mr. Personality, Northstar and Wolverine get along very, very poorly.
* ThemeTwinNaming: He and his sister's codenames are astronomy-themed and refer to the North (as in Canada, where they're from)
* TokenMinority: For one thing, he and Aurora were the only Quebecois members of Alpha Flight. Oh, and he's usually the only gay member of any team he's in, too.
* WonderTwinPowers: When he is with his twin sister Aurora.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Jeanne-Marie Beaubier / Aurora]]

!!'''Jeanne-Marie Beaubier/Aurora'''

* AntiHero: Type I. She has [[SplitPersonality multiple personality disorder]], but at least originally was generally a very nice person despite that, simply switching between ascetic and introvert, or hedonistic and extrovert.
* BeautifulAllAlong
* BrotherSisterTeam
* [[LesserStar The Garfunkel]]: Compared to her much more famous (gay!) twin brother. She's shown signs of resentment about this in the past.
* LightEmUp
* RapidFireFisticuffs
* ReallyGetsAround: At least one of her personae.
* SplitPersonality: At least nine at last count, and she can change from one persona to the next almost on the fly depending on her needs.
* SuperSpeed
* ThemeTwinNaming
* TooKinkyToTorture: Norman Osborn learned this the hard way in a "Utopia" side story.
* WonderTwinPowers
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Jonothon Evan Starsmore / Chamber]]

!!'''Jonothon Evan Starsmore/Chamber'''

* AntiHero: Type I
* BlessedWithSuck: Chamber's mutation gave him the ability to emit fire from his mouth and chest area. His inability to turn it off eventually completely destroyed his lower jaw and most of his chest. He didn't really feel any pain from it, but he's still missing his jaw and has a nearly completely exposed ribcage.
* BroughtDownToNormal: Lost his powers and his deformity during the Decimation.
** StatusQuoIsGod: Both were brought back during the "Age Of X" storyline (Thanks to a RealityWarper), and remained even after things were returned to normal.
* DisabilitySuperpower: See BlessedWithSuck.
* EnergyBeing: Very, very heavily implied.
* FireBreath: Though he can't turn it off and it caused him to lose his lower jaw.
* {{Goth}}
* HandicappedBadass: He's lost most of his lower jaw and chest, but he's a competent fighter in spite of his injuries.
* HowDoIShotWeb: He would be able to reconstruct his face, if he knew how.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: After losing a huge amount of his body, you can't blame him.
* {{Jerkass}}
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Through character development.
* LukeIAmYourFather: He's a distant descendant of Apocalypse, and post-Decimation he got the markings to prove it (turns out they were always there; he blew out everything from mouth-level to midriff, and didn't get healed until some years later, real-world time. To everyone's shock, he was restored with... an Apocalypse-like jaw and the markings of Apocalypse's followers on his chest. He basically said something to the effect of "When did I ever ''ask'' to be healed?").
* MakeMeWannaShout: During his brief stint with the NewWarriors, Jono wore a sonic rig that could turn sound into energy constructs.
* PowerDegeneration: He had an explosive power that blew off his jaw and upper chest prior to joining the team. Using his power slowly widened the explosive area, he near literally had part of his face and chest "on fire".
* PsychicPowers: He needs them to talk.
* RequiredSecondaryPowers: Not needing to eat, breathe or drink as well as communicating telepathically. In fact, his name comes from the fact that he is a ''chamber'' for raw psionic energy. (The fire being ''psionic'' energy is also why he gets thought speak... which is actually a ''really'' fine-tune use of his power for someone who otherwise can only blow things up with it.)
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Paige Guthrie / Husk]]

!!'''Paige Guthrie/Husk'''

* BarbieDollAnatomy / MagicPants: She's naked when using her powers.
* DeepSouth
* FunetikAksent: She slips into a Kentucky accent when scared or stressed.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Husk was revealed as this. Her brother was already the super-hero Cannonball, and she tried everything she could to get mutant powers to develop, almost killing herself a few times. Finally she just about gave up, crying and clenching herself... when her skin started flaking off like old wallpaper. She ripped and shredded and tore herself up, which for anyone else would have been scary as hell, but for her, it was the happiest moment of her life.
* KidAppealCharacter
* MagicPants: Husk has the ability to transform her skin into any material she can think of, but she must tear off the existing layer to do so. This results in her being naked a fair amount of the time, but {{censor steam}} is omitted in some scenes where her new skin serves the purpose of a costume. She has specifically refused to revert to her human form on occasions because of her nudity.
* MayDecemberRomance: For a while, she was in a relationship with Archangel. This has since fallen by the wayside.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Stacy X / Miranda Leevald]]

!!'''Stacy X'''

* AntiHero: Type I-II
* {{Fetish}}: Particularly for her clients -- she's a successful prostitute despite having scaly skin and snake eyes.
* HookerWithAHeartOfGold
* PunnyName: Stacy X has the power to induce '''ecstacy''' with a touch. Or nausea, but that's not punny.
* SnakesAreSexy: InUniverse.
* SnakePeople: She's a sexy, sexy, snake-woman.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Heather Cameron / Lifeguard]]

!!'''Heather Cameron/Lifeguard'''

* GreenLanternRing
* PillarsOfMoralCharacter: Very into saving lives.
* ShapeshifterModeLock: She remains stuck in a half Shi'ar form.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Of a sort. Her power is to develop whatever physical ability best helps her save lives, initially ''specifically'' someone else's life and not her own. Wings, armored skin, multiple limbs, SuperStrength... the thing is, she can't predict the form it'll take. She hasn't looked fully human in some time.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Davis Cameron / Slipstream]]

!!'''Davis Cameron/Slipstream'''

* SurferDude
* TeleportersAndTransporters: He can create a tunnel through space and 'surf' through it, taking others with him. It's hinted that if he 'wiped out,' the portal could collapse and he and his passengers would be beyond screwed.
* WhatHaveIBecome: Has a FreakOut after seeing his sister in ShapeshifterModeLock and quits the team.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Hisako Ichiki / Armor]]

!!'''Hisako Ichiki/Armor'''
* AchillesHeel: Her armor proves vulnerable to FrickinLaserBeams since, as she puts it, [[LogicalWeakness "The armor has to let light through"]]. She also shows vulnerability to adamantium, though flesh cannot reach through, so the TropeNamer WolverineClaws don't always reach to her.
* AncestralWeapon: Her armor is described as being powered by the line of her ancestors, and actually becomes more powerful when people in her family die.
* [[AscendedFanboy Ascended Fangirl]]
* CuteBruiser: Hisako is a 5'4", 112 pound, cute and quippy Japanese girl. She can also flip over tanks.
* DependingOnTheArtist: Anything from the shape, size and color of her armor tends to change with every new artist, and sometimes even by the same artist during the same story.
* FastballSpecial: Does it with Wolverine a couple of times ([[PintsizedPowerhouse with Hisako doing the throwing]])
* FieldPromotion: How she made the team.
* FutureBadass: According to at least one timeline, she grows up to lead the X-Men.
* InstantArmor
* KidAppealCharacter: Complete with becoming Wolverine's sidekick; she is basically the successor to Kitty, Jubilee, and Movie Rogue in that respect.
* JumpedAtTheCall
* LittleMissSnarker
* RunningGag: Complaining that her codename sucks, though she seems to be over it by now.
* {{Sizeshifter}}: Kinda, her body remains the same size, but she can make her armor grow hundreds of feet tall, as well as becoming strong enough to beat [[{{Kaiju}} Fin Fang Foom]] into submission with seemingly little effort.
* VitriolicBestBuds: When she and Wolverine aren't busy being [[MentorArchetype Mentor]]/{{Sidekick}}, most of their interactions come off as this.
* WolverineClaws: Has shown the ability to shape her armor into these, although only seen using them once in actual combat - against a [[ThouShaltNotKill non-human]] opponent.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: James Proudstar / Warpath]]

!!'''James Proudstar/Warpath'''

* AntiHero: Type III-IV
* {{Badass}}: Messing with him is a very bad idea.
* BloodKnight
* HairTriggerTemper: Also like his brother, he's very easily aggravated; They don't call him "Warpath" for nothing.
* KnifeNut: Warpath currently dual-wields knives made of vibranium as his signature weapons. Noteworthy in that he is not AxCrazy at all.
* LegacyCharacter: Like his brother, the above-mentioned Thunderbird, he has the same powers and wears the identical-looking costume after him during his early appearances. He still wears a nearly identical outfit to this day.
* {{Revenge}}: We first meet him as a ''NewMutants'' villain, wanting to get revenge for Thunderbird's death. He was even originally named Thunderbird in tribute.
* ScarilyCompetentTracker: It comes from his youth. Only got better once he picked up his SuperSenses.
* SuperpowerLottery: Won it big:
** SuperStrength: Once fought ''directly'' with Juggernaut, managing to stand up and not give ground for several minutes.
*** SuperToughness
** SuperSpeed: Not at the "telescoping time" level, but Warpath can run down vehicles on the road.
** SuperSenses: Implied to be above the level of ferals. Mimic, who has copied ferals before, tried to copy Warpath's powers and was overwhelmed by sheer sensory input. May also extend to a sixth sense of sorts, as when he was on X-Force, Warpath had a tendency to wander off during fights he wasn't needed for and find things.
** SuperReflexes: Has been shown evading weapons fire.
** Superhuman Flexibility and Agility: Despite being seven feet and 350 pounds, Warpath has been described as moving like an Olympic gymnast.
** HealingFactor: Though not as strong as usual for this trope, it's there.
** Flight
** MagicalNativeAmerican: Ghost Rider unlocked shamanistic powers within Warpath so they could fight the Demon Bear and win. He used these powers to stop Selene in the Necrosis storyline. These powers seemed to be temporary, but alternate universe versions of Warpath have shown him having mystical powers as well, implying that his mutation has the potential for it.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Hepzibah]]

!!'''Hepzibah'''

* AntiHero: Probably type III-IV
* AnimalStereotypes: A skunk, complete with claws, senses, and stink powers.
* CatGirl: Though she is a skunk alien, she looks more feline. This is something that happens progressively as a DependingOnTheArtist thing; from skunk girl to cat girl with skunk tail to garden-variety cat girl over the decades. Her earliest and latest appearances don't look like the same character.
* GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe
* ShoutOut: To Pogo's skunk character.
* TheUnpronounceable (her real name. Corsair invented the "Hepzibah" moniker; she didn't like it at first but came to tolerate it.)
* YouNoTakeCandle: Initially; she becomes more fluent with time.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Caliban]]

!!'''Caliban'''

* AntiHero
* BloodKnight
* DumbMuscle: Eventually became this after a convoluted series of events.
* EmotionEater: Caliban feeds off fear as part of his mutant power. A once-seen effect was that he could make you terrified of him just by willing it.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Never consistently on one side.
* HeroicSacrifice: Took several bullets to save Cable.
* OnlyOneName
* StalkerWithACrush: In his first appearance, he was obsessed with Kitty Pryde, and abducted her to protect her.
* ThirdPersonPerson
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Weapon XIII / Fantomex]]

!!'''Weapon XIII/Fantomex'''

* AntiHero: Fantomex is ultimately a good guy, but he can be horrifyingly ruthless on occasion.
* {{Badass}}: The guy's good.
** BadassLongcoat: ''And'' a SpyCatsuit.
* BadFuture: It's implied that in the averted "Here Comes Tomorrow" future, he became Sublime's lieutenant Apollyon.
* CaptainErsatz: {{Diabolik}} and Franchise/{{Fantomas}}. He even has Diabolik's SpyCatsuit and E.V.A. is named after Diabolik's girlfriend Eva Kant. His name is an obvious play on ''Fantomas'', and like the Mexican comicbook ComicBook/{{Fantomas}}, he never removes his mask.
* CaptainEthnic: While it eventually turned out that he was faking it, Fantomex appeared to be a suave, deceptive French superthief. This has led to him derogatively being called "Faux-Frenchie" on a couple of occasions.
* DualWielding: Handguns
* FutureBadass: E.V.A. lives on after he dies, apparently, and becomes a vital member of the X-Men with a fully realized personality.
* GrandTheftMe: He can control E.V.A.'s actions and see from her point of view with concentration.
* MasterOfIllusion
* NighInvulnerable: He feels no pain due to having a remotely-stored nervous system; while he ''can'' be hurt, it doesn't deter him.
* PsychicLink: With his autonomous nervous system E.V.A.
* RuleOfCool: The entire Fantomex thing? Basically entirely done because he thinks French guys are cool (and maybe because he first surfaced in Paris).
* VoluntaryShapeShifting: E.V.A. can change shape at will.
* [[WouldHurtAChild Would Shoot A Child In The Head]]: And YMMV whether he does or does ''not'' cross the MoralEventHorizon in doing so.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Barnell Bohusk / Beak]]

!!'''Barnell Bohusk/Beak'''

* AntiHero: Type I

* BroughtDownToNormal: By the Decimation.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Chicken man's got ''moves'' with a baseball bat in his hands.
* FutureBadass: Apparently, Beak himself eventually. His grandson Tito Jr is tremendously muscular and heroic... and for some reason feels as though he'll never live up to Barnell's memory. We never figure out just what Beak did between the present and the BadFuture.
* HappilyMarried: To Angel Salvatore.
* TookALevelInBadass: During Comicbook/{{New X-Men}}'s Planet X arc. He later becomes a [[Comicbook/NewWarriors New Warrior]] and a member of the all-new Teen Brigade, even after he's [[BroughtDownToNormal depowered on M-Day.]]

!!'''Angel Salvatore'''

* AntiHero: Type I
* BroughtDownToNormal: By the Decimation.
* CuteMonsterGirl: Fly wings, and acid spit.
* OneSteveLimit: Introduced when Warren Worthington was called Archangel and had been for years. Goes by Tempest now that Warren is going by Angel when he's not blue-skinned and metal-winged.
* PrankDate: That's how her relationship with Beak started. The eventual result was an unexpected pregnancy, of all things, which due to her fly-like biology caused her to give birth to five babies in just a few days.
* {{Squick}}: Being based on a fly, the acid's true purpose was to partially digest her food into a slime that would then be eaten. It's treated as gross in-universe as it sounds.

* PowerIncontinence
* TheMedic: Had some ill-defined healing abilities, and they often didn't work, or he had a zen-sounding reason to not do it. [[spoiler: That's because he healed Xavier by fixing his spine using his magnetic powers on the nano-sentinels. He ''couldn't'' heal most of the people he was asked to.]]

* AllYourPowersCombined: So far her power set's being kept deliberately vague, but so far she seems to be a power-copier like Mimic.
** Most of the time she just copies Cable's power of "shooting a really big gun."
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She really, really would just love to try to be a normal girl. But donít try to hurt her Lights. Ever.
* BreakTheCutie: Her entire childhood has pretty much been one long list of people trying to do this to her. The fact that it hasnít succeeded says a lot about her character.
* CrazyPrepared: When she decides to go to Alaska to figure out what happened to her mother, she packs enough supplies and weaponry for a small armyóand then has to be told that itís not really necessary. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] by the fact that she grew up in a CrapsackWorld that was long, long AfterTheEnd, while being hunted by an AxCrazy ex-hero. Did we mention she was raised by one of the Marvel Universeís consummate soldiers and survivors?
* DaddysGirl: Cable's not her father, but he might as well be.
* {{Expy}}: The editors and staff at Marvel have been playing her up as one of these for Jean Grey from practically Day One, even putting the Phoenix effect around her in promos (though [[TrailersAlwaysLie nowhere in-story]]). So far, reception's been... [[BrokenBase mixed.]]
* FieryRedhead
* GoodIsNotNice: Well, what do you expect from someone raised by Cable?
* LaserGuidedTykeBomb: Sort of, and sort of subverted; Cable raises her and protects her for the explicit purpose of saving the mutant race, but he doesn't really know how she's going to do this, so he can't teach her anything directly related to that task.
* MeaningfulName: story-wise, she was named after another deceased Hope who was Cable's wife for a time and acted as a mother-figure for the younger Hope.
* MessianicArchetype: Though not an AllLovingHero, personality-wise... being raised by [[NinetiesAntiHero Cable]] doesn't do wonders for an idealistic mindset.

* PlotRelevantAgeUp: Goes a child to a young adult in a very short amount of time.

[[folder: Emma Grace Frost / White Queen]]

!!'''Emma Grace Frost/White Queen'''

First appeared as a villainess who tended to underdress for the occasion. Currently, she's a heroine with less than heroic tendencies, and still likes to underdress. Has (or had; she killed one) two mutant sisters, and a gay brother who went insane after their father had him institutionalized.

* AbusiveParents: Her father was cold and emotionless and encouraged his children to play mindgames with each other. Her mother was a neglectful drug abuser.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Many animated adaptations take away Emma's more [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] personality traits. Rearranging her backstory, often giving her a HiddenHeartOfGold among other positive qualities.
* AntiHero: UnscrupulousHero [[BaseBreaker or]] NominalHero.
* TheAtoner (in ''Generation X'', and newly focused on by Creator/JossWhedon)
* {{Badass}}: Emma Frost is easily one of the most powerful mutants on the team.
** BadassBookworm
** CulturedBadass
** PopCulturedBadass
* BattleCouple: with Cyclops, a relationship which lasted more than 10 (real world) years before they broke up.
* BastardGirlfriend: The White Queen's entire deal.
* BettyAndVeronica: Veronica for Cyclops.
* BigBad: One of several in the original run of ''NewMutants''.
* BlondesAreEvil: More intensely during her Hellfire Club days.
* BreakTheCutie: Her [[FreudianExcuse retconned]] backstory qualifies.
* BreakoutCharacter: Easily the most prominent and popular 21st century addition to the X-Men.
* BrokenAce / BrokenBird / TroubledButCute: Again, depending on the writer.
* [[ByronicHero Byronic Heroine]]: Rare female example, but DependingOnTheWriter, it can be well done or extremely disturbing.
* CainAndAbel: She and her sister, Adrienne.
* ColdBloodedTorture: One of her favorite psionic experiences is inducing extreme levels of pain, often in people already held captive. She has continued to violate and traumatise people over the years, frequently in combination with SmugSuper {{One Liner}}s.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: She will make you do some really weird things using telepathy: for example, 48 hours of uncontrollable vomiting upon hearing the word "parsley".
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: At one point, she was in the Hellfire Club.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Her father was cold, uncaring, sadistic and physically abusive, her mother was a neglectful drug user, her older sister was identical to their father, and her younger sister couldn't care less about her. The only family member who cared about her became a drug addict (thanks to his father's horrible treatment to him), and when she thought things would be better to her, her friend was killed in front of her, another friend was a bitch who manipulated her, and her LoveInterest dumped her because she was a mutant. She also used to enjoy torture, mind-rape, followed by setting hunting dogs on the nightly victims (yes, really), corporate corruption, manipulation, deceit, and forcing opponents to kill themselves during her villain years. Shaw required her to help killing her two best friends to become White Queen.
* DeadpanSnarker: It makes her appear even colder at some points.
* DependingOnTheWriter: Scott Lobdell's version had almost nothing in common with the CorruptCorporateExecutive supremacist MindRape ColdBloodedTorture fetishist that she used to be. Instead, she became a excellent teacher doing genuinely good actions while [[GoodFeelsGood feeling good about it]]. However, later in ''GenerationX'', she was strongly hinted to have murdered a police officer looking into her sister's death (at Emma's hands). GrantMorrison and some other writers returned her closer to her roots again, according to some it made her more interesting, but played her as a complete [[TheHedonist hedonistic]] JerkAss, which sat badly with those who were introduced to her through ''Generation X'', because it put all the CharacterDevelopment she had during seven years in a trash bin. Later other writers attempted to either return her to the less extreme portrayal or attempt to integrate the two.
* DefrostingIceQueen: She is in no danger of defrosting completely anytime soon. Since she was already defrosting in the ''{{Generation X}}'', but then Morrison reverted her into even more of an ice queen than when she was a villain, any defrosting now still seems like a regression. However, in some chapters, she seems to be [[{{Chickification}} melting]].
* DependingOnTheWriter: A BrokenBird with a SugarAndIcePersonality, [[TheAtoner trying to atone for her past sins]] and [[IJustWantToBeLoved just wanting to be loved]], or an amoral JerkSue SadistTeacher with no sense of ethics who [[MoralMyopia is praised for]] being a textbook extreme [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] serial-rapist, torture-fetishist, supremacist, and otherwise all-around BastardGirlfriend? Basically, the answer seems to be that she has been portrayed as two (three, four...) entirely different types of people over the years.
* DyeHard: Her natural hair color is brown.
* EvilFeelsGood (More intensely during the Hellfire Club days, but DependingOnTheWriter, still maintains similar patterns).
* EvilMentor: Sebastian Shaw
* EvilPaysBetter (Hellfire Club days)
* EvilTeacher (Hellfire Club days)
* FireWaterJuxtaposition: Used to contrast her with Jean when she first enters Scott's life. Emma is constantly associated with ice and the cold because of her surname "Frost", her [[WomanInWhite all-white attire]] and her cool temperament, and she resembles an ice sculpture when in her organic diamond form; Jean is constantly associated with fire and warmth because of her red hair, her codename "Phoenix" and her unpredictable temper, and her psionic powers frequently manifest as flames.
* FreakyFridayFlip: Pulled off one with Storm in her Hellfire Club days, in an attempt to destroy the X-Men from within.
* TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry: Her father had her compete with her sisters for the right to be his heir (her brother had the good sense to stay out of it. Consequently, he was the sibling she was closest to). Her rivalry with her eldest sister, Adrienne, became so bad that it eventually went [[CainAndAbel fatal.]]
* GoodFeelsGood: In a number of occasions, she had expressed how much she was trying to be a good person and liked to do "the right things". She does have a bad conscience though, enjoys earning approval from Scott, and has been praised for a number of good deeds, although recurrently [[ShootTheDog a bit extreme]]. However, she seems to enjoy earning approval from Scott, and some of her teammates or students.
* GuiltComplex: As explicitly stated on ''Astonishing X-Men'' #18.
** BeAllMySinsRemembered
* TheHedonist: DependingOnTheWriter.
* [[HeroWithAnFInGood Heroine With An F In Good]]: Occasionally improves.
* HeelFaceTurn: After a fashion. It's kind of funny, she just sort of "fell into" hanging with the X-men. She was comatose for a long while and in their care, and revived right in the middle of the big Phalanx mega-crossover. She escaped with the rest of the X-men and, having nowhere else to go, just wound up helping them.
* HyperAwareness
** LivingLieDetector: She doesn't even need to use her powers to do it.
* JerkAssWoobie: Her [[TearJerker background]] makes her qualify for this, and in addition Emma lost all of her students ''three times'', was the sole survivor of a massacre that killed more than 14 million people, and struggles with herself a lot for her past (and present) morally questionable acts.
* JerkJustifications: Emma was originally presented as a textbook sociopath, somebody extremely inclined towards being very bad, who has no illusions about the "severe warts on her soul", on-off trying to learn how to be good, and stumbling along the way a lot. [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold But despite her aloof behavior and extreme methods, she genuinely cares about the mutant race and her students.]]
* KarmaHoudini: She used to torture captive people to death for sexual gratification. Yet isn't serving multiple life-sentences. She ''pays'' in occasional bad conscience for some of the many horrible things she does, and the tragedies of losing her students, but it's never enough to make her stop doing very morally objectionable things.
* KindheartedCatLover: Well, maybe not exactly kindhearted, but she's a cat lover...
* KnightTemplar: She's incredibly ruthless, brutal, and uncompromising, but she's fiercely protective of her students and allies and is greatly invested in helping mutantkind advance and have a better tomorrow. She's just FAR less touchy about using extreme force to achieve her goals and deal with anyone who tries to harm her or those she has sworn to protect.
* LightFeminineAndDarkFeminine: Invoked. She always wears a white costume whereas Selene, the Black queen, usually wears a black verion of it.
* MamaBear: Seriously, do NOT threaten her students. ...On the other hand, originally (as per the Firestar mini) she regularly tortured them when dissatisfied with their progress or wanted to get a point across. She is currently trying to be a better teacher, however, but is still not above occasionally violating them if she deems it necessary, such as the Elixir case. In her defense, Elixir had just attacked Colossus, one of her [[http://i45.tinypic.com/xdi0zs.jpg best friends]], and others X-Men had done worst threats to their own students.
* ManipulativeBitch: Even after the HeelFaceTurn
* MeaningfulName: In her villain days, she wasn't really evil in an "ice queen" manner, and in fact outwardly played the role of a benevolent friendly and somewhat nerdy headmaster, so "Frost" didn't really mean anything until Morrison decided it did. Post-Morrison, her surname also serves to highlight the OppositesAttract nature of her relationship with Scott ("'''Frost'''" and "'''Summer'''s"--get it?).
* MindRape: [[MoralMyopia She thoroughly loves this trope.]]
* MostCommonSuperpower: Frost is one of the very few superheroines known to have breast implants.
* MsFanservice: Emma Frost gets quite a few scenes where she's wearing even less than usual.
* NighInvulnerable: She eventually gained a "secondary mutation" that lets her shapeshift into a form that is living diamond. This makes her extremely difficult to hurt, but disables her PsychicPowers until she reverts to her fleshy form.
* OddFriendship: with Wolverine. Also a FanPreferredCouple.
** In a ironic twist, out of all the NewMutants, she has the most relaxed friendship with Sam Guthrie.
* OfCorsetsSexy (Hellfire Club days)
* PayEvilUntoEvil: Takes this attitude towards many things.
** DisproportionateRetribution: Towards plenty of regular people who have simply somewhat annoyed her.
* PetTheDog: She has turned very loyal to her students, genuinely loved Cyclops; and although she started out heavily into rape, torture, bondage, brainwashing, and slavery, [[MoralMyopia she was later shown as extremely opposed to the real-world variants]].
* {{Pride}}: Even post HeelFaceTurn she's rather arrogant.
* ProgressivelyPrettier: In-universe example: she was HollywoodHomely in her teenage years, but has made several plastic surgeries to look beautiful.
** Frost is one of the few comic book characters to [[MostCommonSuperPower admit that she's had breast implants]].
* PsychicAssistedSuicide
* PsychicPowers: which she can't use when in her NighInvulnerable mode.
* RichBitch: Even post HeelFaceTurn.
* SecondLove: She was Cyclops's second longest lasting girlfriend after Jean Grey, but alas, it didn't work out in the end.
* SmugSuper: Her problem is that she's good and she knows it.
* SourOutsideSadInside
* SoProudOfYou: To Kitty in ''Giant Size Astonishing X-Men'' #1 and Hisako in the anime.
* SpotlightStealingSquad (seems to get more attention in the comics now, than women who've been in the team far longer).
* {{Stripperific}}: Especially on the infamous Greg Horn covers.
** She does it on purpose as a way of making it easier to distract and manipulate men; as far as she's concerned, it's just another way of automatically putting the ball in her court.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: During ComicBook/GenerationX, beneath her aloof and apathetic behaviour, Emma was a tortured soul who [[IJustWantToBeLoved just wanted to be loved]] and [[IJustWantToHaveFriends trusted by her teammates]]. This was carried over by some writers in later X-Books.
* SurvivorGuilt: Due to being the sole survivor of the Genosha massacre.
* TeamMom: To her students at least.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Subverted or played straight, DependingOnTheWriter.
* VillainBallMagnet: Emma struggles to fight her darker urges, and on a few occasions she gives in.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Her relationship with certain other X-women.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: She genuinely seeks to help mutantkind and protect her students, but has some serious flaws in the way she goes about it.
* WomanInWhite: Her defining visual characteristic, in contrast to Selene's WomanInBlack.
* WorkingWithTheEx: Keeps being a part of the Cyclops-led faction of the x-men even after they broke up.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Type A.

Her brother was already the super-hero Cannonball, and she tried everything she could to get mutant powers to develop, almost killing herself a few times. Finally she just about gave up, crying and clenching herself... when her skin started flaking off like old wallpaper.

* AchillesHeel: Her armor proves vulnerable to FrickinLaserBeams since, as she puts it, [[LogicalWeakness "The armor has to let light through"]]. She also shows vulnerability to adamantium, though flesh cannot reach through, so the TropeNamer WolverineClaws don't always reach to her.
* AncestralWeapon: Her armor is described as being powered by the line of her ancestors, and actually becomes more powerful when people in her family die.
* [[AscendedFanboy Ascended Fangirl]]
* CuteBruiser: Hisako is a 5'4", 112 pound, cute and quippy Japanese girl. She can also flip over tanks.
* DependingOnTheArtist: Anything from the shape, size and color of her armor tends to change with every new artist, and sometimes even by the same artist during the same story.
* FastballSpecial: Does it with Wolverine a couple of times ([[PintsizedPowerhouse with Hisako doing the throwing]])
* FieldPromotion: How she made the team.
* FutureBadass: According to at least one timeline, she grows up to lead the X-Men.
* InstantArmor
* KidAppealCharacter: Complete with becoming Wolverine's sidekick; she is basically the successor to Kitty, Jubilee, and Movie Rogue in that respect.
* JumpedAtTheCall
* LittleMissSnarker
* RunningGag: Complaining that her codename sucks, though she seems to be over it by now.
* {{Sizeshifter}}: Kinda, her body remains the same size, but she can make her armor grow hundreds of feet tall, as well as becoming strong enough to beat [[{{Kaiju}} Fin Fang Foom]] into submission with seemingly little effort.
* VitriolicBestBuds: When she and Wolverine aren't busy being [[MentorArchetype Mentor]]/{{Sidekick}}, most of their interactions come off as this.
* WolverineClaws: Has shown the ability to shape her armor into these, although only seen using them once in actual combat - against a [[ThouShaltNotKill non-human]] opponent.

[[folder: James Proudstar / Warpath]]

!!'''James Proudstar/Warpath'''

* AntiHero: Type III-IV
* {{Badass}}: Messing with him is a very bad idea.
* BloodKnight
* HairTriggerTemper: Also like his brother, he's very easily aggravated; They don't call him "Warpath" for nothing.
* KnifeNut: Warpath currently dual-wields knives made of vibranium as his signature weapons. Noteworthy in that he is not AxCrazy at all.
* LegacyCharacter: Like his brother, the above-mentioned Thunderbird, he has the same powers and wears the identical-looking costume after him during his early appearances. He still wears a nearly identical outfit to this day.
* {{Revenge}}: We first meet him as a ''NewMutants'' villain, wanting to get revenge for Thunderbird's death. He was even originally named Thunderbird in tribute.
* ScarilyCompetentTracker: It comes from his youth. Only got better once he picked up his SuperSenses.
* SuperpowerLottery: Won it big:
** SuperStrength: Once fought ''directly'' with Juggernaut, managing to stand up and not give ground for several minutes.
*** SuperToughness
** SuperSpeed: Not at the "telescoping time" level, but Warpath can run down vehicles on the road.
** SuperSenses: Implied to be above the level of ferals. Mimic, who has copied ferals before, tried to copy Warpath's powers and was overwhelmed by sheer sensory input. May also extend to a sixth sense of sorts, as when he was on X-Force, Warpath had a tendency to wander off during fights he wasn't needed for and find things.
** SuperReflexes: Has been shown evading weapons fire.
** Superhuman Flexibility and Agility: Despite being seven feet and 350 pounds, Warpath has been described as moving like an Olympic gymnast.
** HealingFactor: Though not as strong as usual for this trope, it's there.
** Flight
** MagicalNativeAmerican: Ghost Rider unlocked shamanistic powers within Warpath so they could fight the Demon Bear and win. He used these powers to stop Selene in the Necrosis storyline. These powers seemed to be temporary, but alternate universe versions of Warpath have shown him having mystical powers as well, implying that his mutation has the potential for it.

[[folder: Hepzibah]]

!!'''Hepzibah'''

* AntiHero: Probably type III-IV
* AnimalStereotypes: A skunk, complete with claws, senses, and stink powers.
* CatGirl: Though she is a skunk alien, she looks more feline. This is something that happens progressively as a DependingOnTheArtist thing; from skunk girl to cat girl with skunk tail to garden-variety cat girl over the decades. Her earliest and latest appearances don't look like the same character.
* GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe
* ShoutOut: To Pogo's skunk character.
* TheUnpronounceable (her real name. Corsair invented the "Hepzibah" moniker; she didn't like it at first but came to tolerate it.)
* YouNoTakeCandle: Initially; she becomes more fluent with time.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Caliban]]

!!'''Caliban'''

* AntiHero
* BloodKnight
* DumbMuscle: Eventually became this after a convoluted series of events.
* EmotionEater: Caliban feeds off fear as part of his mutant power. A once-seen effect was that he could make you terrified of him just by willing it.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Never consistently on one side.
* HeroicSacrifice: Took several bullets to save Cable.
* OnlyOneName
* StalkerWithACrush: In his first appearance, he was obsessed with Kitty Pryde, and abducted her to protect her.
* ThirdPersonPerson
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Weapon XIII / Fantomex]]

!!'''Weapon XIII/Fantomex'''

* AntiHero: Fantomex is ultimately a good guy, but he can be horrifyingly ruthless on occasion.
* {{Badass}}: The guy's good.
** BadassLongcoat: ''And'' a SpyCatsuit.
* BadFuture: It's implied that in the averted "Here Comes Tomorrow" future, he became Sublime's lieutenant Apollyon.
* CaptainErsatz: {{Diabolik}} and Franchise/{{Fantomas}}. He even has Diabolik's SpyCatsuit and E.V.A. is named after Diabolik's girlfriend Eva Kant. His name is an obvious play on ''Fantomas'', and like the Mexican comicbook ComicBook/{{Fantomas}}, he never removes his mask.
* CaptainEthnic: While it eventually turned out that he was faking it, Fantomex appeared to be a suave, deceptive French superthief. This has led to him derogatively being called "Faux-Frenchie" on a couple of occasions.
* DualWielding: Handguns
* FutureBadass: E.V.A. lives on after he dies, apparently, and becomes a vital member of the X-Men with a fully realized personality.
* GrandTheftMe: He can control E.V.A.'s actions and see from her point of view with concentration.
* MasterOfIllusion
* NighInvulnerable: He feels no pain due to having a remotely-stored nervous system; while he ''can'' be hurt, it doesn't deter him.
* PsychicLink: With his autonomous nervous system E.V.A.
* RuleOfCool: The entire Fantomex thing? Basically entirely done because he thinks French guys are cool (and maybe because he first surfaced in Paris).
* VoluntaryShapeShifting: E.V.A. can change shape at will.
* [[WouldHurtAChild Would Shoot A Child In The Head]]: And YMMV whether he does or does ''not'' cross the MoralEventHorizon in doing so.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Barnell Bohusk / Beak]]

!!'''Barnell Bohusk/Beak'''

* AntiHero: Type I
* BatterUp: The baseball bat is practically his signature weapon by the end of Comicbook/{{New X-Men}}. It's implied that Tito Jr's bat is the same one.
* BroughtDownToNormal: By the Decimation.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Chicken man's got ''moves'' with a baseball bat in his hands.
* FutureBadass: Apparently, Beak himself eventually. His grandson Tito Jr is tremendously muscular and heroic... and for some reason feels as though he'll never live up to Barnell's memory. We never figure out just what Beak did between the present and the BadFuture.
* HappilyMarried: To Angel Salvatore.
* TookALevelInBadass: During Comicbook/{{New X-Men}}'s Planet X arc. He later becomes a [[Comicbook/NewWarriors New Warrior]] and a member of the all-new Teen Brigade, even after he's [[BroughtDownToNormal depowered on M-Day.]]
* UglyGuyHotWife: Beak looks like a chicken, while Angel looks like a normal girl with fly wings. They both got hot in NewWarriors after being depowered.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway
* YouNoTakeCandle: Beak's from the Netherlands, and has a somewhat limited grasp of English.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Angel Salvatore]]

!!'''Angel Salvatore'''

* AntiHero: Type I
* BroughtDownToNormal: By the Decimation.
* CuteMonsterGirl: Fly wings, and acid spit.
* OneSteveLimit: Introduced when Warren Worthington was called Archangel and had been for years. Goes by Tempest now that Warren is going by Angel when he's not blue-skinned and metal-winged.
* PrankDate: That's how her relationship with Beak started. The eventual result was an unexpected pregnancy, of all things, which due to her fly-like biology caused her to give birth to five babies in just a few days.
* {{Squick}}: Being based on a fly, the acid's true purpose was to partially digest her food into a slime that would then be eaten. It's treated as gross in-universe as it sounds.
* ThemeTwinNaming: The kids are named after the JacksonFive.
* UglyGuyHotWife: See above. She genuinely does love Beak and they have lived as close to HappilyEverAfter as you can in comics.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Xorn]]

!!'''Xorn'''

* BecomingTheMask: While he was really [[spoiler:Magneto]] [[ContinuitySnarl (though not exactly)]], it's hard to argue that he didn't get absorbed in the identity and show genuine compassion to his students.
** ''With'' the retcon, he still falls under it, having believed himself [[spoiler: to be the real Erik.]]
* EvilTwin: It was also later revealed that he had a [[spoiler: ''good'' twin brother with the same powers and the personality he pretended to have]]. Uh huh.
* IdenticalStranger: An AuthorsSavingThrow eventually revealed that Xorn was ''really'' really a guy who happened to look just like [[spoiler:Magneto]].
* ManInTheIronMask: Absolutely necessary, otherwise his head, which is a ''star'', would basically kill everything around him. [[spoiler: Not really. That's just an excuse for why he can't be scanned with telepathy or any of their instruments; actually the helmet blocking such things. He mocks the team for believing the star-for-a-brain thing.]]
* PowerIncontinence
* TheMedic: Had some ill-defined healing abilities, and they often didn't work, or he had a zen-sounding reason to not do it. [[spoiler: That's because he healed Xavier by fixing his spine using his magnetic powers on the nano-sentinels. He ''couldn't'' heal most of the people he was asked to.]]
* TheReveal
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Karima Shapandar / Omega Sentinel]]

!!'''Karima Shapandar/Omega Sentinel'''

* {{BFG}}: She can manifest these.
* HollywoodCyborg
* InsistentTerminology: For a short time, she had a habit of reminding people that it was ''Detective-Inspector'' Karima Shapandar.
* RobotGirl
* UnwillingRoboticization: She was turned into an Omega Sentinel against her will. What, if any, of her is still organic is unknown.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Xi'an Coy Manh / Karma]]

!!'''Xi'an Coy Manh/Karma'''

A Vietnamese refugee forced to raise her twin siblings after her parents were killed in the war. Joined Xavier's school to provide for her siblings. She's also a French-speaking Catholic. Her Mutant ability is the power to take control of other people's bodies and manipulate them at will.

* ArtificialLimbs: Lost most of her left leg during the "Second Coming" storyline, and had it replaced with a mechanical prosthetic.
* LipstickLesbian
* PeoplePuppets
* PromotionToParent
* CainAndAbel: Her evil brother.
* RapeAsBackstory
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Tyrone Johnson / Cloak]]

!!'''Tyrone Johnson/[[ComicBook/CloakAndDagger Cloak]]'''

* AntiHero: Type III-IV
* BadassCape
* CastingAShadow
* HorrorHunger: Cloak has this for a vaguely defined kind of human Life Energy, represented as light. It's generally not an issue because his partner Dagger naturally generates an excess of the stuff, but on one occasion when she'd abandoned him he came near to killing several innocent people.
* LivingShadow
* TeleportersAndTransporters: Cloak can teleport via the "Darkforce Dimension," which his cloak is a portal to. He can take passengers, but it's a pretty traumatizing ride if his partner Dagger isn't around to ameliorate the effects.

[[folder: Hope Summers]]

!!'''Hope Summers'''

* ActionGirl: Letís see, sheís been trained in the arts of survival and war since she was a child, by one of Marvelís most iconic anti-heroes. She also carries a {{BFG}}.
* AllYourPowersCombined: So far her power set's being kept deliberately vague, but so far she seems to be a power-copier like Mimic.
** Most of the time she just copies Cable's power of "shooting a really big gun."
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She really, really would just love to try to be a normal girl. But donít try to hurt her Lights. Ever.
* BreakTheCutie: Her entire childhood has pretty much been one long list of people trying to do this to her. The fact that it hasnít succeeded says a lot about her character.
* CrazyPrepared: When she decides to go to Alaska to figure out what happened to her mother, she packs enough supplies and weaponry for a small armyóand then has to be told that itís not really necessary. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] by the fact that she grew up in a CrapsackWorld that was long, long AfterTheEnd, while being hunted by an AxCrazy ex-hero. Did we mention she was raised by one of the Marvel Universeís consummate soldiers and survivors?
* DaddysGirl: Cable's not her father, but he might as well be.
* {{Expy}}: The editors and staff at Marvel have been playing her up as one of these for Jean Grey from practically Day One, even putting the Phoenix effect around her in promos (though [[TrailersAlwaysLie nowhere in-story]]). So far, reception's been... [[BrokenBase mixed.]]
* FieryRedhead
* GoodIsNotNice: Well, what do you expect from someone raised by Cable?
* LaserGuidedTykeBomb: Sort of, and sort of subverted; Cable raises her and protects her for the explicit purpose of saving the mutant race, but he doesn't really know how she's going to do this, so he can't teach her anything directly related to that task.
* MeaningfulName: story-wise, she was named after another deceased Hope who was Cable's wife for a time and acted as a mother-figure for the younger Hope.
* MessianicArchetype: Though not an AllLovingHero, personality-wise... being raised by [[NinetiesAntiHero Cable]] doesn't do wonders for an idealistic mindset.
* NaiveNewcomer: After a childhood travelling through increasingly desolate futurescapes, she's ecstatic on arriving in in the consumerist paradise of the 21st century.
* PlotRelevantAgeUp: Goes a child to a young adult in a very short amount of time.
* PowerCopying: One of her main abilities.
* WhatTheHellHero: She ''does not'' approve of the way Cyclops runs the team.

* MeaningfulName: In her villain days, she wasn't really evil in an "ice queen" manner, and in fact outwardly played the role of a benevolent friendly and somewhat nerdy headmaster, so "Frost" didn't really mean anything until Morrison decided it did.

Added DiffLines:

* FireWaterJuxtaposition: Used to contrast her with Jean when she first enters Scott's life. Emma is constantly associated with ice and the cold because of her surname "Frost", her [[WomanInWhite all-white attire]] and her cool temperament, and she resembles an ice sculpture when in her organic diamond form; Jean is constantly associated with fire and warmth because of her red hair, her codename "Phoenix" and her unpredictable temper, and her psionic powers frequently manifest as flames.
