''{{X-Men Evolution}}'' was filled with a wide range of characters. Here is a page to learn more about the main cast. '''Warning! Major Spoilers below!''' ------ [[foldercontrol]] [[WMG: The X-Men]] [[folder:{{The Students}}]] [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/scott_6700.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Cyclops/Scott Summers]] !!!Code Name: Cyclops !!!Real Name: Scott Summers !!!!!! Voiced by KirbyMorrow -> ''"No, we're the X-Men. We're not kids anymore. You trained us, Wolverine, and you know something? We're good. Very good."'' The leader of Professor Xavier's students. A mutant who shoots [[FrickinLaserBeams high-intensity beams]] [[EyeBeams from his eyes]]. Unfortunately for him, he can never shut this power off. So he must always wear special visors or glasses made of ruby-quartz. Due to having a strong sense of morals and drive to be the leader, Scott can sometimes come off as a "boy scout" or "do-gooder". But he also has an extremely competitive side and tries hard to hold his temper in check, which can sometimes get the better of him. In contrast to his reputation for being stiff, he surprisingly shows a good sense of humor. During the series, Scott reunited with his brother Alex, who he thought died in the plane crash both were involved in. * ArchEnemy: Avalanche. * BigBrotherMentor * BigBrotherInstinct: Very protective of his long-lost little brother, Alex. * TheCaptain: And a badass one at that. This is easily one of Scott's most badass depictions yet. * EyeBeams * TheHero * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Kurt. FridgeBrilliance kicks in when you realize how after he was separated from his brother, Alex, Kurt ends up fulfilling this role for him. * {{Mugging The Monster}}/{{Bullying A Dragon}}: For some reason, everyone wants a piece of Cyke, especially Duncan and Avalanche, and ''especially'' when the former finds out ''why'' he wears those shades. * OfficialCouple: [[ForegoneConclusion He ends up with Jean.]] * PowerIncontinence * SexySpectacles - His pretty boy design flirts with the idea. * ShipTease: Rogue had a crush on Scott and he ''might'' have had some feelings for her. But see OfficialCouple. * ShirtlessScene: Scott's clothing is made of much weaker materials than everyone else apparently. * StandardizedLeader: The poster boy. * SunglassesAtNight: ''Don't switch the blade on the guy in shades, oh-no!'' * WaveMotionGun: Pulls one off against The Juggernaut by tearing off his visor and opening his eyes as wide as he can. Sure, this is TheJuggernaut and it only lasts a while, but it takes out huge chunks of the surrounding area. * {{Workaholic}}: PlayedForLaughs: Scott ''LOVES'' Danger Room Simulations, and is happy to suggest them as a possible group activity at two in the morning. ** He was just pulling their leg one time though. The other time, he was dead serious, and apparently disappointed when the idea was shot down. [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jean_grey_8572.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Jean Grey]] !!!Code Name: Unknown !!!Real Name: Jean Grey !!!!!! Voiced by VenusTerzo -> ''"It bugs me to always be treated like the weaker sex!"'' Jean was the most popular of the X-Men who attended Bayville High. Beautiful, athletic, and smart, she seemed to not have the problems the others faced trying to fit in and be normal. But her growing powers made her extremely insecure and showed she had her own burdens to bear. And she was ultimately shunned by her former friends when revealed to be a mutant. Jean dated Duncan Matthews for the first two seasons, but later fell for Scott, who had secretly loved her from afar. Jean also has a very close father and daughter type relationship with Professor Xavier. * ActionGirl * TheChick * CodeName: Averted. She uses her real name. ** This is lampshaded by Kurt in the tie-in comics. * CoolBigSis: To Kitty and the New Mutant girls. * HeroesWantRedHeads * ImpossibleHourglassFigure: Nice, uh, ''pants'', Jean. * MindOverMatter: Her powers are telepathy and telekinesis. * [[MoralGuardians Moral Guardian]]: Compare Jean to Cyclops in season one's ''Survival of the Fittest''. Both the Brotherhood and X-Men competed to get to the top of a mountain and place a flag before the other team. The catch was neither team could use their powers. But Scott had no problem cheating and using his powers after seeing Avalanche cheat. Jean though was quick to point out that the X-Men should be above such things and stick to the rules. Interesting that neither Scott or Jean were portrayed in a positive light here with Jean being shown as slightly overbearing and self serving. * RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Rogue's red. * PluckyGirl * PowerIncontinence: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Power Surge"]] is dedicated to have her go through this. * SpoiledSweet: She possessed everything that can make a girl the AlphaBitch. Beauty, popularity, and a jock boyfriend. Instead she was nice and willing to help anyone. * StrawFeminist: Comes up during ''Walk on the Wild Side'' and never really touched on again. She calls Scott out on trying to help and bitches at Duncan for buying tickets to a dance, when its supposed to be the girl who asks the guy out, while complaining about always feeling like she's treated as the weaker sex. ** Kind of done pretty badly because Jean takes an obvious joke Scott makes very personally, and keeps raging even when he apologizes and obviously regrets what he said. * {{Telepathy}} * {{Tsundere}}: Type B. She's the sweetest CoolBigSis, unless Duncan or Scott (or both) are around. [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nightcrawler_3321.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Nightcrawler/Kurt Wagner]] !!!Code Name: Nightcrawler !!!Real Name: Kurt Wagner !!!!!! Voiced by BradSwaile -> ''"Chicks dig the fuzzy dude!"'' Nightcrawler is a blue, furry mutant whose power is the ability to teleport. He uses a [[{{Glamour}} holographic image inducer]] in public to appear as a normal teenage boy. Nightcrawler is the [[LukeIAmYourFather biological son of Mystique]], who [[ParentalAbandonment dropped/abandoned him]] a long time ago. They don't get along. In contrast to his demonic appearance, Kurt is kind, fun loving, and a loyal friend. But there also is a sense of sadness about him as he longs to be accepted by the world outside despite his appearance. * ArchEnemy: Toad * BeastAndBeauty: Kurt and Amanda. * BerserkButton: ''Don't'' pull his tail. ** Also don't steal his Image Inducer. He completely ''flips out'' when Toad does it. * BigEater * CuteLittleFangs * DarkIsNotEvil: Don't be fooled by his demonic appearance. * FreakyIsCool: Kurt's girlfriend [[FanOfUnderDog Amanda]] isn't bothered at all by his true appearance. ** It's her FetishFuel. * FunPersonified: He loves to party. * GratuitousGerman * HappilyAdopted: Played with: Kurt loves his adoptive parents dearly and wouldn't trade them for the world, but as time goes on he shows a little too much interest in his birth parent and his origin. However, at the end he's shown to be unwilling to establish any kind of relationship with Mystique. * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Scott * {{Hologram}}: Kurt's normal Bayville High appearance is nothing more than a hologram. * TheLancer * NiceGuy * [[FanNickname Nickname]]: Fuzzy Blue Elf. ** [[InSeriesNickname Used in-series, too.]] * PlatonicLifePartners: With Kitty. * PluckyComicRelief * PoirotSpeak * PrettyBoy * SadClown: Sometimes, not nearly as often as the FanDumb would have you think. He gets his fair share of angst, but by the next episode he'll be back to making jokes and acting happily. * ShoutOut: He's the only X-Man to wear his original costume from the comics. * TeleFrag * TeleporterAccident: Forge tries to extend the range of Nightcrawler's teleportation, and ends up creating rifts to the hell-like dimension Nightcrawler uses to move from place to place. Needless to say, the inhabitants get out. * TeleportersAndTransporters * UglyCute: "Ugly" in-universe (He's repeatedly been compared to a big blue rat), ''freaking adorable'' to the fans. [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rogue_2212.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Rogue]] !!!Code Name: Rogue !!!Real name: Unknown !!!!!! Voiced by Meghan Black -> ''"Me and Miss Popularity there are worlds apart, galaxies, but then I realized something. She would do the same thing for me."'' Rogue is a mysterious mutant who absorbs the memories and abilities of others through touch. Due to her powers, Rogue has become [[BrokenBird withdrawn, bitter, anti-social, and sullen]]. Only after learning to trust the other X-Men, does she begin to open up. Rogue is Mystique's adopted daughter. But Rogue turns her back on Mystique after learning that she was only using her and joins the X-Men. She develops a massive crush on Cyclops, but later accepted that Scott loved Jean and not her. * ActionGirl * AmericanAccents: [[DeepSouth Dixie]] * AllLoveIsUnrequited: Her love for Cyclops can never be returned. ** PromotedToLoveInterest: Her counterpart of the comics never had romantic feelings for Scott. * {{Badass}}: Due to the nature of her power, most Danger Room scenes have her instead use basic training and martial arts to deal with the robotic threats and use her powers sporadically. Shown off in ''Cajun Spice'', where she uses her power for mind reading only and mostly takes out the Rippers with just outmatching them in fighting skills. * BlessedWithSuck: Her powers mean she can never touch anyone without risking their lives. ** Significantly less so in this adaptation; she often uses her powers to knock out opponents, and then proceeds to use those to take care of the rest of them. Or if one of her friends are knocked out anyway, she takes their powers as an extra boost to the group's fighting strength. She definitely uses it much more liberally not to mention more effectively than often portrayed. * TheChick: The first brotherhood chick. ** SixthRanger: After her HeelFaceTurn. * DeadpanSnarker * EnergyAbsorption * {{Goth}}: A huge departure from her SouthernBelle comic persona. And it proved to be quite popular. Some Comic writers (notably Grant Morrison) wanted to CanonImmigrant this, but never got the chance to. Instead it appears X-23 has absorbed this trait when adapted into the Comics. * GreenEyedMonster: Rogue shows some jealousy toward Jean, possibly due to her [[PowerIncontinence own power's drawback]] and Jean seeming to be perfect in every way. This becomes clear in season two's ''Power Surge'' where Jean can telepathically hear Rogue snark on her for winning an award, and later for believing Professor Xavier gives Jean preferential treatment. Knowing that Scott, who she has a crush on, really loves Jean doesn't help either. At the end, she acknowledges that for all their differences, Jean does care for her. * HeelFaceTurn: She first joined the Brotherhood before joining the X-Men. * {{Hopeless Suitor}}: For Scott. * MostCommonSuperpower: again, [[MsFanservice it's Rogue.]] * NoNameGiven: She's referred to as 'a rogue' by Xavier in her origin episode, then she expresses a lack of memory. Since then, her name was never revealed in the show, and she was only referred to as Rogue. Many have taken to calling her Anna Marie, her current comic name, but it's more of a fanon thing right now. * OddFriendship: With Kitty. The girls have nothing in common, but get along great. Well, they eventually do, earlier episodes showed them as not being able to stand each other. * OnlyOneName * RedOniBlueOni: The red to Jean's blue. * RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: Rogue made quick best friends with Risty Wilde, a girl from Manchester, England. They seemed to have a lot in common and some fans were getting some SchoolgirlLesbians vibes from the two. That came to a halt when we learned Risty was actually her [[{{Squick}} mother Mystique in disguise.]] * ShipTease: Beside the aforementioned crush on Scott, in the later seasons she had one full episode of blatant ShipTease with Gambit, plus scattered moments in other episodes. ** Though, according to the character designed and occasional director of the series, they kept this to a minimum because a lot of the writing team shipped Scott and Rogue. * StrangeGirl * WakeupMakeup: Rogue is never seen without her makeup. Even when Avalanche pushed her into a pool, or when she ''just'' steps out of the shower, her make-up is completely intact. Though there is one episode in season 4, "Cajun Spice," where Rogue falls into a lake and comes out makeup-free. [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kitty_3176.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Shadowcat/Kitty Pryde]] !!!Code Name: Shadowcat !!!Real Name: Kitty Pryde !!!!!! Voiced by Maggie Blue O'Hara -> ''"I don't have any gifts, just a curse."'' A mutant from Northbrook, Illinois whose ability allows her to become intangible. Shadowcat is the youngest member of the team and is characterized by [[ThePollyanna her upbeat nature and cheerfulness]]. She usually pals around with Nightcrawler since they are about the same age. Her on-again off-again romance with Avalanche was a sub-plot that continued through all four seasons. She first develops a crush on him while still in school, but it turned out he was only using her to steal test answers. Later, even though they are on opposite teams, Lance saves her life and her opinion of him changes. They date for a while, but their differences break them up, before ultimately reigniting their romantic relationship after the fight against Apocalypse. * AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Somewhat subverted in that Kitty was attracted to the ''good'' person inside of Lance. Although to a 15 year old girl being pursued by an older bad boy wasn't exactly a turn-off. * CuteClumsyGirl: The only class she doesn't ace is gym. * DatingCatwoman: With Avalanche. * TheDitz: She started as one, but this mostly stopped after the first season. ** DitzyGenius: She's shown to be well versed with the Mansion's computer system, and was stated to be a straight A student. So its more that she just acts a little ditzy. * DrivesLikeCrazy: Her driving even scares Wolverine, due to her habit of phasing the car through obstacles. Scott was so scared he swore to never drive again. * InformedJudaism: The only evidence that she's Jewish is a scene of her lighting the menorah in her home in the ChristmasEpisode. * [[IntangibleMan Intangible Girl]] * MoralityPet: Since season two on, definitely Lance's. * NaiveNewcomer: She definitely feels like a fish out of water when she first joins the X-Men, being particularly weirded out by Kurt's appearance at first. * OfficialCouple: She gets back together with Lance in the last episode. * PlatonicLifePartners: With Kurt. * PluckyGirl * [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]]: She can be a brainiac sometimes. ** TheChick: With shades of this. * TeenGenius: A straight A student (although her intelligence was somewhat downplayed compared to other versions of Shadowcat). * ValleyGirl: She stopped, like totally, after the first season. For sure. [[/folder]] ----- [[folder:{{The Teachers}}]] [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/logan_6921.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Wolverine/Logan]] !!!Code Name: Wolverine !!!Real Name: Unknown, goes by Logan !!!!!! Voiced by {{Scott McNeil}} -> ''"We're definitely gonna need more instructors. An' maybe a couple of tanks."'' The X-Men's top fighter and chief drill instructor to the students. His keen senses help him track down adversaries and alert him of danger ahead. His healing powers make him nearly impossible to defeat in a brawl. Adamantium claws are capable of shredding enemies and just about any inanimate object as well. His past is a mystery to everyone, including himself. It is a rather lengthy past as well because his healing factor has drastically slowed the aging of his body. He was already an adult by World War II. Unlike in other X-Men series, Wolverine plays a minor role in ''XMenEvolution'' and is more of a PapaWolf than carousing {{Bad Ass}}. * BadassTeacher * {{Badbutt}}: God forbid he makes someone bleed with those claws. * BruiserWithASoftCenter: He gradually warms up to Kitty and Kurt nicknaming them "Half-pint" and "Elf" respectively. * CoolOldGuy: The guy was around helping Captain America in WWII. * DrillSergeantNasty: Can be at times; see TrainingFromHell below. * HealingFactor * HotBloodedSideburns * IntergenerationalFriendship: With Kitty and Rogue. * MysteriousPast: Some episodes go into his past... a little. * OppositeSexClone: X-23 * PapaWolf: Hurt any of his X-Men at your own risk. Especially Kitty and X-23. * TeamDad * TrainingFromHell: This trope gets first {{deconstructed}}, and then ''{{reconstructed}}'' - in the first X-23 episode, it's established that he can be pretty harsh with training the younger X-Men-to-be, to the point that Rogue wouldn't admit she'd gotten better (after the last episode's events) to avoid it. After his experience with the aforementioned {{Tykebomb}}, he loosens up because "Sometimes you just gotta let kids be kids". He realizes that pushing teenagers too far in training is detrimental, and he eases up by the end. Contains hilarity in that Rogue of all people was pretending to still be sick in an effort to evade his training session. * WolverineClaws * WolverinePublicity: Subverted. Amazingly, Wolverine was mostly a background player due to being an adult on a show where the focus was on the kids. And it worked pretty well, mind you. * TheWorfEffect: Need to make The Juggernaut look like a huge threat? Have him kick Wolverine's ass. [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/storm_9575.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Storm/Ororo Munroe]] !!!Code Name: Storm !!!Real Name: Ororo Munroe !!!!!! Voiced by Kirsten Williamson -> ''"I'm a weather-witch, not a snow plow. I'm doing the best I can."'' One of Professor Xavier's top teachers, Storm is seen as a role model by the students. She is also one of the most powerful mutants alive due to her ability to manipulate the weather. One of her few weaknesses is her claustrophobia which was explored in her one spotlight episode ''African Storm''. * ActionGirl * BadassTeacher * BlowYouAway * BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler: She becomes one of Apocalypse's Horsemen.]] * {{Claustrophobia}} * {{Flight}}: One of the few characters that can fly in this X-Men Universe. * ImpossibleHourglassFigure combined with ShesGotLegs: WordOfGod from the guy who designed the characters, Storm has very long shapely legs and curvy hips. * MakingASplash: Can produce rain, of course. * ShockAndAwe * TeamMom: And aunt to Spyke. * WeatherDissonance * [[WhiteHairedPrettyGirl White Haired Pretty Woman]] [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beast_4055.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Beast/Hank [=McCoy=]]] !!!Code Name: Beast !!!Real Name: Hank [=McCoy=] !!!!!! Voiced by MichaelKopsa -> ''"I can see now that teaching mutants will require entirely different skills."'' Hank [=McCoy=] was a popular teacher at Bayville High who held a dark secret. His mutation gave him a burly physique with large hands and feet and unparalleled agility, but also a feral side to his mind. After school hours, he worked on a serum he hoped would stop his primal regressions when simply reciting Shakespeare wasn't enough to keep him focused. But unfortunately his beastly side was set free by an attempt to make a better serum, turning him into a blue furred beast. He damaged the school, also threatening Principal Kelly in an uncontrollable rage. The X-Men eventually were able to locate and subdue him. Soon the rage subsided, but life would never be the same. His rampage at the school and his drastic and permanent change in physical appearance would make any public appearance too startling for a general population unaware of the mutants among them. Hank remained at the Xavier Institute as a teacher for the New Recruits. Similar to Wolverine and Storm, he is more of a bit player due to the focus being on the students. * BadassTeacher * BewareTheNiceOnes * CoolTeacher: In the eyes of the New Mutants, in stark contrast to Wolverine SternTeacher or Jean and Scott's PoliticallyMotivatedTeacher mentality * GeniusBruiser * GentleGiant: Sure he ''looks'' big and scary, but he has the temperament of a teddy bear. * SesquipedalianLoquaciousness * ShoutOutToShakespeare: Not only a practice of his, it's also how Spyke gets through to him. * TeamDad: To the New Mutants. * TVGenius [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prox_2483.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Professor X/Charles Xavier]] !!!Code Name: Professor X !!!Real Name: Charles Xavier !!!!!! Voiced by DavidKaye -> ''"You know, handling defeat is as much mark of your character as coming home the victor. And from what I see, this was a lesson, apparently, much needed."'' The world's most powerful telepath and founder of the X-Men. His goal is to maintain a peaceful co-existence between humans and mutants. He created a school which trains mutants to use their powers responsibly and discreetly in order to prevent panic from the general human population. This philosophy puts him at odds with mutants such as Magneto who believe mutants should be dominating humanity rather than hiding from it. * ActualPacifist * BaldOfAwesome * BigGood * BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler: Like Storm, is captured by Apocalypse and turned into one of his Horsemen.]] * TheComicallySerious * CoolChair * CoolOldGuy * FriendlyEnemy: How Xavier sees Magneto, although their friendship is not as emphasized as in other portrayals. * NonActionGuy: Justified since his power is telepathy. He ''could'' perform MindRape and the like, making him a destructive force, if he wasn't so moral. * [[spoiler: ParentalNeglect: He didn't mean to be neglectful, ''he didn't know the kid existed!'']] * TheProfessor * TeamDad * {{Telepathy}} [[/folder]] ------ [[folder:New Mutants/New Recruits]] !!!Code Name: Iceman !!!Real Name: Robert 'Bobby' Drake !!!!!! Voiced by Andrew Francis The unofficial leader of the 'baby' group the New Recruits. Bobby joined, along with his team, during the break between season 1 and 2 and appears mostly in B-plots and eventually becomes the SixthRanger once Spyke leaves the main team. YMMV on whether or not he's the [[IncrediblyLamePun coolest]] new addition or the TooDumbToLive Scrappy who ruins the series (Thought primarily the first option to the less crazy fans). * AnIcePerson: What did you expect? * BrilliantButLazy: He's shown in the few times he gets to be on a mission to be a capable team player, and was a fairly competent leader during a Danger Room Session, but usually his immaturity gets in the way. Also Note that Bobby is an Omega level mutant in the comics, but can't stay focused to learn his full potential. * CharacterDevelopment: Starts off as nothing more than an extra face. By Season four, he officially replaces Evan's role in the series, getting to hang out with the main X-Men. * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Cannonball. ** PlatonicLifePartners: With Jubilee. [[ShipTease As far]] [[DidTheyOrDidntThey as we]] [[PutOnABus know anyway]]. * TheHero: To the New Recruits anyway. * TooDumbToLive: He STOLE THE X-JET FOR A JOYRIDE! He BROKE INTO THE DANGER ROOM FOR UNSUPERVISED TRAINING! HE PUT AN ICEBERG IN FRONT OF THE SHIP HE WAS SAILING ON! * TotallyRadical: To some extent, not as bad as Spyke though. * WhatCouldHaveBeen: Bobby was the original candidate for the last member of the original team, but the [[ExecutiveMeddling Executives decided they wanted a]] TokenMinority and pushed for a black character in the TrueCompanions. !!!Code Name: Cannonball !!!Real Name: Samuel 'Sam' Guthrie !!!!!! Voiced by Bill Switzer The tall, blond southern boy who joined at the same time as the other NewRecruits. More well rounded and likable than Bobby in some terms, he's easily identifiable by being a head taller than most of the students, even some of the original cast. * AmericanAccents: A southern drawl, not really as strong as most versions though, tends to be {{Flanderized}} in Fanfics. * BarrierWarrior: Doesn't ever use his power to fight, he's more of an evacuation type person. In the final fight, all he does is fly Rogue to Apocalypse's strong hold. * {{Flight}}: His power allows him to fly like a rocket, however unlike most people, he can't stop or float, meaning his only way to land is to crash land. * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Bobby. * HoistByHisOwnPetard: Could have beat Logan in a race, but got cocky and decided to use his powers. Lost horribly because of this. * {{Geek}}: WordOfGod bios for the New Recruits refer to him as such. * GentleGiant: The tallest of the New Recruits, but easily the nicest. * TheKlutz: He Certainly crashes a lot. * TheLancer / TheBigGuy: To the New Recruits anyway. !!!Code Name: Jubilee !!!Real Name: Jubilation Lee !!!!!! Voiced by Chiara Zanni Usually seen with Bobby, Sam, and Jamie, Jubilee is the second most seen female mamber of the New Recruits during Season 2. She's PutOnABus despite proving to be rather popular amongst some of the fans when the [[ExecutiveMeddling executives]] decided there were too many characters. She has the ability to shoot firework-like 'plasmoids' either in the shape of actual fireworks or beams. Easily identifiable by her yellow jacket. * AsianAirhead * BrilliantButLazy: Her WordOfGod official bio describes her as this, not really seen however. * EmbarrassingFirstName: Jubilation, never referred to as such in the show though. * LethalHarmlessPowers: She fires explosive plasmoids! Regularly seen firing them at friends/other students. * OneOfTheBoys: Only seen hanging out with Girls in two appearances, every other scene, she's always with Bobby (And to lesser extent Sam and Jamie), either for his crazy adventures, or for the ShipTease. * PutOnABus: Alongside Wolfsbane she was written out at the beginning of season 3. [[spoiler:Came back in the finale to help fight Apocalypse]]. * ShoutOut: Constantly wears a yellow jacket when out of uniform. Season 2 ends with her clothes damaged enough to turn her normal jeans into shorts, making her look exactly how she did in the comics (Only with longer hair). * {{Tomboy}}: How some fanfics about her are usually written. !!!Code Name: Magma !!!Real Name: Amara Aquilla !!!!!! Voiced by Alexandra Carter The only one to get an episode of focus (two actually) but also the most powerful. Magma, as her name suggests, can generate heat and fire, along with to some extent control lava. A princess in her home country, Amara is one of the more girly members of the group, not to mention a little of a ShrinkingViolet at first. * ADayInTheLimelight: Ends up getting two episodes of focus. * DefrostingIceQueen: Similar to the one below, Amara was apparently going to be one of these, assumed to have happened off screen. * EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Not really mentioned or touched upon, but official bios confirm she's still a princess. * NaiveNewcomer * TheOjou * PlayingWithFire * RaceLift: She's actually from Brazil in both show and comics, but her comic appearance changed her into a blue-eyed Caucasian Brazilian. * RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: With Tabitha. * TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Tabitha's/Jubilee's Tomboy. !!!Code Name: Wolfsbane !!!Real Name: Rahne Sinclair !!!!!! Voiced by Chantal Strand A Scottish mutant who can turn into a wolf or half whenever she wants who primarily spent her appearances in the background or as a wolf, but got an episode or two speaking. Like Jubilee, she was written out of the series, despite being popular, thought her lack of importance to any plot is a noted factor. * FanService: Got a swimsuit scene in the episode 'Retreat', not only the first to do so but also the only New Recruit girl to wear a two piece. * OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: She's a mutant human girl who can turn into either a full wolf or half wolf/human hybrid, her clothes slowly disapear while transforming (Likely made of unstable molecules, this being a MarvelUniverse after all) only to reform while transforming. * NotCompletelyUseless: Most of the time her power to turn into a ''dog'' seemed almost completely useless, until the kid's needed her to sniff out Beast after he'd been kidnapped by some Big-Foot hunters. * PutOnABus: [[spoiler: Until she was called in to help in the finale.]] * Scotireland: Downplayed. She has a very little to non-existant accent that almost sounds like the voice of a fairy. * ShipTease: She played around with Sam & helped Jamie with Homework which may explain her ships with them, butthe most popular Rahne-related ships with Roberto, based on the episode ''Retreat'' (being the only episode both of them actually speak in full sentances) * TheVoiceless: As said before, got two speaking roles, in one of them all she does is laugh a little, usually she's just in the background or in her wolf form. !!!Code Name: Sunspot !!!Real Name: Roberto da Costa !!!!!! Voiced by Michael Coleman A rich Brazilian boy with the power to absorb solar energy to gain super human capabilities, such as strength, speed, agility, and, in the first season two episode, fly. He does very little for the show but still retains a small fanbase of NeedsMoreLove type fans. * FlyingBrick: Only seen flying once, but his powers make him one. * HotBlooded * ThePowerOfTheSun * ShipTease: With Rahne in the episode ''Retreat'', Namely the seen in which they're both wearing Swimsuits and staring romantically at each other. * TheVoiceless: Speaks in one episode only. !!!Code Name: Berzerker !!!Real Name: Ray Crisp !!!!!! Voiced by Tony Sampson A Morlock in the comics, Ray is arguably one of the more popular characters in the series who got considerably more development here than his comic self. * AbortedArc: Was originally going to have a rivalry with Sunspot, but it was dropped after one episode. * AscendedExtra: Appears once in the comics as an AxeCrazy Morlock, here appears in a good number of B-Plots, usually as Bobby's second Male Best friend an speaks in almost every appearance. * BerserkButton: Apparently hitting him in the face with a ball when using your powers in a non-powered game of volleyball is a sure fire way to set him off. * BerserkerRage: His codename ''is'' [[IncrediblyLamePun Berzerker]], after all. * JerkWithAHeartOfGold: WordOfGod claims this as the reason they created him, they wanted a New Recruit who has a "bad boy" vibe, someone who acts tough but is really nice. In the show however he's almost always expressing the heart part. * HeyItsThatVoice: Hey, it's [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy Eddy!]] * OnlySaneMan: Surprisingly, he comes off as one of the most mature of the New Mutants. Yes, he has a temper but that doesn't distract that hes the least seen when the other members are doing their normal shenanigans * PsychoElectro: Not as powerful or as psychotic as some, but does have serious anger issues which were addressed at times and did hold himself out against STORM (who at the time was upgraded by Apocalypse). * YouGottaHaveBlueHair: He has blond hair with a spiked, orange fringe that to most people just looks ridiculous. ** It might be dyed, though. !!!Code Name: Multiple !!!Real Name: James 'Jamie' Madrox !!!!!! Voiced by David Kaye (not [[DavidKaye the one who voices Professor X]]) The youngest of the ensemble, Jamie is like the little brother none of them wanted, his power to duplicate himself, his clothes, and any object he's holding but only when hit with external kinetic energy (such as being hit/knocked over), which causes him to get in the way due to his clumsiness. * AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Not really anyone's brother, but they act like it nonetheless. * BrattyHalfPint: A rare, non-Scrappy case! * CheerfulChild: Hence why he's not Multiple ''Man'' like the comics. * InNameOnly: Compared to his comic self at least, Who was the same age as most of the other X-Men. * MesACrowd * TheTeamWannabe: He keeps begging and pleading to be let in on the antics the other kids get themselves into, it usually never works. Which is actually a good thing. * VagueAge: While WordOfGod says they had no idea how old most of the characters were, Jamie's exact age in particular is uncertain, he was referred to as 'like 12' but this may just be an exaggeration. [[/folder]] ------ [[folder:{{Ex-Members}}]] [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/spyke_6106.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Spyke/Evan Daniels]] !!!Code Name: Spyke !!!Real Name: Evan Daniels !!!!!! Voiced by Neil Denis -> ''"Come on, Rogue, get with the program. Shake that thing!"'' A mutant from New York City and also Storm's nephew. He has the ability to project bone-like spikes from his skin. Spyke is stubborn and lacks respect for authority. This often puts him in conflict with the other X-Men. When his powers can't be controlled he leaves the X-Men, and joins the Morlocks, becoming their champion. * AntiHero: Part of Evan's character development. At the start of the series he's a type I; he's the less serious minded of the cast, regularly skipping out on meetings and acting really hot headed. After his secondary mutation, and seeing the living condition of the Morlocks, Spyke grows into a Type III, taking to vigilantism to protect mutants who are being bullied and attacked by humans, but his heart remains in the right place. * BadWithTheBone * TheBigGuy: He's the most reckless and prone to violence. * CanonForeigner * CommutingOnABus: Part of the main cast for the first two and a half seasons. He leaves the X-Men during the third season to join the Morlocks. He is all but forgotten about till he reappears in a season four episode. * DarkSkinnedBlond * FadSuper * GoodIsNotNice: In Season 4. * HotBlooded: It makes the future evolution of his powers quite fitting. * IncendiaryExponent: Flaming spikes after "Uprising". * JerkWithAHeartOfGold * JustLikeRobinHood: After joining the Morlocks. Though he never actually steals, he partakes in Street Justice to protect mutants. * OriginalGeneration * TheRival: To Quicksilver in their introductory episode. * SkeletonsInTheCoatCloset: An involuntary version of the trope "Uprising". * SpearCounterpart: To the comics' Marrow, powerset-wise (and him joining the Morlocks later also reflects this, since Marrow was a Morlock to begin with). The show's producers stated that, at the time, they didn't know about Marrow, hence why Spyke's so similar to her. * SpikeShooter * TokenMinority * TookALevelInBadass: After joining the Morlocks. * TotallyRadical: If the hair and skateboard weren't enough of a clue. * WellIntentionedExtremist * WordOfGod: The creators state that Spyke was not supposed to be a male Marrow.

Voiced by Christopher Grey -> ''"You're making it yours Kitty. Once you own it, nothing can own you."'' A mutant with the ability to manipulate the earth by generating seismic waves from his body. Avalanche came from the same home town as Shadowcat, but had a much different upbringing. He grew up as a streetwise orphan who seemed angry at the world. Confused and alienated, he was a perfect target for Mystique and the Brotherhood. Lance was one of the most complex characters. He started off as a punk, before becoming more of a troubled youth, and then ultimately showing responsibility and maturity. His romantic interest in Kitty Pryde and their relationship played a major role in his attempts to change. It even leads him to attempt a major HeelFaceTurn by joining the X-Men. As the oldest Brotherhood member, Lance is often the defacto leader and feels responsible for the others. * ArchEnemy: Cyclops * BerserkButton: Since Season Two on, for your own good don't hurt or threat Kitty... * CompositeCharacter: Lance has very little to do with the comic book Avalanche outside of team affiliation. He is more an {{expy}} of the X-Men character Julio Esteban Richter aka Rictor. In his looks, personality, and the way he channels his seismic powers. In the first season he had more in common with his comic self, but not by much. * DatingCatwoman: He dates Shadowcat during the second season. The Brotherhood tease him for this. * DishingOutDirt * EvilCounterpart[=/=]{{Foil}}: To Cyclops - both are a BigBrotherMentor and usually the most responsible member of their team, both are orphans, and both tend to take the initiative. The differences end there though as while Scott is calm and collected, Lance is impatient and impulsive, and Scott has turned his own misfortunes in life towards more productive endeavours as opposed to Lance's self-destructive behaviour. Small wonder they're each other's ArchEnemy. * FingerlessGloves * HairTriggerTemper * HeelFaceTurn: Attempted one and almost succeeded, but settled in as a WildCard. * HotBlooded * JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Starts out as a JerkAss in the first season, before becoming a JerkWithAHeartOfGold at the start of the fourth season. * LeitMotif: Summoning it is his main power. The earthquakes are just a RequiredSecondaryPower. * LoveRedeems: Somewhat. He definitely tries to change for Kitty, but can go only so far, and decides to not stay in the New Mutants group after his disastrous and brief stunt there. His heroic acts in ''No Good Deed'' had nothing to do with Kitty, which showed he had it in him all along. He also showed up with the rest of the Brotherhood in ''Ascension part 2'' to help the X-Men fight Apocalypse after first refusing. He immediately goes to save Kitty, which can be either seen as their romance being reignited or a simple PetTheDog moment from him. * MenaceDecay: Went from a unsympathetic PsychoForHire or PunchClockVillain in the comics to an angry, yet notably sympathetic character in the show. ** And in the series itself, in his first episode he's destroying his school and in following episodes his powers generate an OhCrap response, to being love stuck on Kitty for the second season to then not even bothering any more either way to the third. In the fourth he becomes a JerkWithAHeartOfGold and is shown to be the most powerful member of the Brotherhood, possibly even more so than the other villains not over 50. * RaceLift: The comics' Avalanche was Greek. Presumably he was made American to ease him fitting into the setting. * StevenUlyssesPerhero: If you switch his first and last names you get pretty close to his codename. * [[TallDarkAndHandsome Tall, Dark, Handsome]] [[TallDarkAndSnarky AND Snarky.]] * TroubledButCute: Bad boy, check. Rebel attitude, check. Antisocial behavior, check. Difficult home life, check. Fingerless gloves, check. Heart of gold, check. * UnskilledButStrong: Has the potential to be the most destructive recurring mutant in the series and for the most part is, but he lacks the control and the patience to make him a real powerhouse.

Voiced by RichardIanCox -> ''"Look, When you live as fast as I do, there ain't enough things to occupy my time. I gotta entertain myself."'' A mutant that can move at the speed of sound. Pietro is arrogant, deceptive and his loyalty is always in question. He would betray the Brotherhood and his sister Wanda at the command of his father Magneto, yet showed no compassion at his father's disappearance at the hands of Apocalypse. Pietro has a stormy relationship with his twin sister, although their relationship, as well the one with his Brotherhood teammates, improve during season four. * AdaptationalVillainy * ArchEnemy: In his introductory episode with Spyke, which sets him up as TheRival. This doesn't show up in many later episodes though, mostly because Spyke [[CommutingOnABus joins the Morlocks]]. * TheCasanova: Or at least, the potential to become one. The episode with the dance has Boom-Boom implying that the members of the Brotherhood (besides Lance) don't want to go because they can't get dates. Blob and Toad go with Boom-Boom. Pietro shows up with ''four'' random girls. * FragileSpeedster * JerkAss * MotorMouth * ReliableTraitor * SmugSnake * SuperSpeed * {{Wimpification}}: Tends to suffer from this in some Lance/Pietro fanfics. * WeakButSkilled: Pietro is a full-blown FragileSpeedster and in most direct confrontations he goes down in one hit. However, Pietro is the first member of the brotherhood seen with considerable control of his power and the other aspects his power might give him, no doubt having trained in its uses alongside his father. Its to be noted that Pietro is often the Brotherhood member who wins the most battles (or at least before the inclusion of his sister on the team), combined with MotorMouth CasualDangerDialogue * WellDoneSonGuy: Pietro constantly looks for approval from his father. It explains (but ''not'' justifies) a LOT. * WhiteHairedPrettyboy [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/toad_3812.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Toad/Todd Tolensky]] !!!Code Name: Toad !!!Real Name: Todd Tolensky !!!!!! Voiced by Noel Fisher -> ''"Hey, if you can't be cool, be feared. My momma always told me that."'' A repugnant mutant who physically resembles a humanoid toad. And like a toad, can leap great distances, and possesses an extremely long and agile tongue. A social outcast, he has found some acceptance with the Brotherhood, where his talents for thievery and petty crime can be put to good use. Toad is often portrayed as the whipping boy of the Brotherhood, but he also is treated like a little brother, and is even protected by Blob. Toad is known for his extremely poor hygiene which doesn't help him in his attempts to get Wanda Maximoff to like him. * {{Adorkable}}: In his better days. * AmericanAccents: [[BigApplesauce Noo Yawk]], [[VerbalTic yo]]. * ArchEnemy: Nightcrawler. * ButtMonkey: Pretty much defines him. ** TheChewToy: And almost always PlayedForLaughs: ---> (After crashing a jet into a possessed Magneto) "Did we win?"

Either he wears yellow contacts as a disguise that looks as unnatural as his real colour, or wears red contacts to look even weirder, or has the pointless and un-toadlike ability to change his eye colour. * HopelessSuitor: Even though he has zero chance, he still pursues Wanda, ** ContinuityNod: The original Toad was this to the original Scarlet Witch too. * InASingleBound * {{Leitmotif}}: Sing it with me...''T-O-A-D, T-O-A-D! Iss'sall good, yo! See I know, some things ya gotta undastand about Toad.'' * OverlyLongTongue * PluckyComicRelief: One of the funniest characters in the series. * PuppyDogEyes: He has a habit of making these. * RaceLift: Same deal as Avalanche, except Toad was British in the comics. * ScreamsLikeALittleGirl * ThePigPen: probably some of his oft-commented upon body odour is due to his mutation, but the fact he showers on a monthly basis ain't helping.

Voiced by MichaelDobson -> ''"Unstoppable? Meet the unmovable!"'' A humongous boy from Texas, Fred Dukes is among the strongest mutants in the world. Blob is the least intelligent of the Brotherhood, but his brawn helps counterbalance his lack of brains. His hefty build and less than charming personality often make him a target of public ridicule. The social isolation and bad temper made him a prime candidate for recruitment into the Brotherhood by Mystique. He was initially treated well by the X-Men until he attempted to kidnap Jean. * BerserkButton: [[PunctuatedForEmphasis DO NOT LAUGH AT THE BLOB!]] * BlobMonster * TheBrute * DumbMuscle: He did get a little smarter before the end of the series, a ''little''. * FatBastard * MightyGlacier * PetTheDog: He treats Toad like a little brother and is more of a GentleGiant when Mystique isn't around. * StalkerWithACrush: Poor Blob.

Magneto claimed it was necessary because he was unable to help control her dangerous powers, but Wanda always resented him for it. Mystique helped Wanda escape from the asylum in order to bolster the Brotherhood ranks. However, Wanda was more interested in revenge against her father than fighting for the Brotherhood. Wanda suffers from emotional damage from her years locked up in an asylum. But she appears to regain much of her sanity as the series progresses. Wanda has the ability to "hex" other mutants' powers to make them go haywire. * AxCrazy: When it comes to Magneto and Quicksilver. * BrokenBird * TheChick: The current Brotherhood chick. * CurbStompBattle: In her first appearance, she absolutely ''devastated'' the X-Men. * CuteAndPsycho: For some. * DarkMagicalGirl * [[spoiler:FakeMemories: Had these implanted by Mastermind - he basically replaced every bad memory she had of Magneto with good ones.]] * {{Goth}}: Even mores than Rogue. * HotWitch * [[spoiler: SanityStrengthening: Ironically, became less psycho and more kind and helpful towards others after Mastermind messed with her head.]] * MindRape: [[spoiler: Magneto has Mastermind do this to her, replacing her bad memories with good ones so she believes Magneto was a loving father. ]] * ParentalAbandonment: The source of her problems. * TheUnFavorite: Magneto always chooses Quicksilver over her.

He has a long history with Charles Xavier, both as a friend and an enemy. Magneto has given up on the idea of peaceful co-existence between mutants and humans. His philosophy is in direct opposite to that of Xavier, who still believes mutants and humans can live together in relative peace. Magneto envisions himself and other mutants dominating over humanity as the only way to prevent bloodshed between the two groups. However, Magneto's dream is threatened by Apocalypse who has his own plans for world domination. * AffablyEvil: You can't ignore there is a certain charm to Magneto. * AmbiguouslyJewish: In the episode ''Operation: Rebirth'', Wolverine rescues a young Erik from a WWII German controlled camp.

Mystique is the leader of the Brotherhood, but took orders from Magneto, until leaving him after she felt he questioned her loyalty and talent. She is intelligent, cunning, deceptive and dangerous with her with shapeshifting abilities.\\\ She changed into human form and used the name Raven Darkholme to became the Bayville High school principal, giving her the opportunity to monitor Xavier's students as well as her Brotherhood members. Later, she fought Storm, but was easily punched out. Afterwards, she helped the X-Men fight Magneto, but was knocked into his enhancement machine, and was presumed dead by the X-Men following Asteroid M's destruction.\\\ But she returned later, with a permanent RaceLift applied to her by Storm's aforementioned punch. She infiltrated and destroyed Xavier's school by disguising herself as Professor X. Several students barely escaped with their lives.\\\ She raised Rogue and is Nightcrawler's mother, although neither knew her true identity growing up. * ArchEnemy: Was this to Storm during the first season. * BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler: She is turned into one of Apocalypse's Horsemen.]] * EvilPlan: She pulls off [[MagnificentBitch a great one]] on the X-Men by impersonating the then-missing Professor X and getting Wolverine to go missing so he won't identify her.

In the first season, her ShapeshifterDefaultForm was essentially a Caucasian woman with light blue skin, long velvety red hair, and white eyes with gray pupils. But in the rest of the series, it is a LittleBitBeastly African-American woman with dark bluish-green skin, wilder reddish-orange hair, CuteLittleFangs, and [[AnimalEyes yellow cat-like eyes]].

When Magneto's machine enhanced her powers, it also multiplied Storm's invasive skin cells, which fused with Mystique's body, permanently changing her into her own equivalent of a Black woman. * WeaksauceWeakness: In the first season, exposure to any fog conjured by Storm would freeze Mystique where she stood into a HumanPopsicle.

Yes, she sent frakking '''{{Wolverine}}''' running. * BigBrotherMentor: Inverted, the younger X-23 tries to play this to Logan. * BrokenBird * CanonImmigrant: Was quickly brought into the mainstream Marvel lineup. ** Coming full circle when her outfit from the cartoon becomes available as downloadable content for her character - which is based on the comics version - in ''Ultimate MarvelVsCapcom3''. * DarkMagicalGirl: Despite her powers being ''not'' magical, her personality and backstory fit to a T. * DistaffCounterpart: To Wolverine. * DisneyDeath: She fakes her death blowing up HYDRA in a bid to evade SHIELD. * GoneHorriblyRight * GuileHero: She outsmarts everyone: SHIELD (breaking in and gaining information on the Institute,) Xavier (he finds her genuinely upset and allows himself to get close enough to be taken out,) the X Men (the only one not taken out is Logan,) HYDRA (she tries to fight Logan off from following her because she wanted to be captured so she could destroy them) and Logan himself (making him think she was on a suicide mission so that SHIELD won't come after her.) * HealingFactor: And she bitches out Logan when he doesn't heal as fast as she does. -->"Gimme a break kid, I started the morning by falling out of an airplane." ** Which is actually FridgeBrilliance considering that in-canon Wolverine Healing Factor is actually weaker do to a fact that its constantly healing him from metal poisoning as a result of having metal bones. So of course She heals faster as her own healing factor isn't impeded by roughly 300 lbs of indestructible metal. * HeelFaceTurn: At the end it's revealed she joins the X Men. * HellbentForLeather * [[IWillProtectHer I Will Protect Him]]: Turns out this was the reason she was so antagonistic towards Logan when she was being hunted. She didn't want him to be a target for Hydra. She also didn't want to risk killing him when she destroyed HYDRA. * IWorkAlone: She keeps shoving away Wolverine when he tries to help. Turns out it's not only because of the threat from HYDRA or SHIELD, but she intends to kill off HYDRA and Logan might get in the way. * JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Of the GoodIsNotNice variety. * LaserGuidedTykebomb * PsychoticSmirk: Flashes one to the Hydra leader who did the experiments on her, after calmly setting explosives that will kill them all. * RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Against first Logan then HYDRA. * UnkemptBeauty: Implied. When infiltrating Jean's room she acts girly with her teddy bear, before showing a dislike to her perfume. ** She ''does'' have Wolverine's ultra-sensitive sense of smell. Sniffing the nozzle was probably like sticking her head in a bucket of Chanel. http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mor_5201.png [[caption-width:338:The Morlocks]] -> ''"You're with the Morlocks, we understand you"'' The Morlocks are a secretive group of underground mutants whose mutations make them unable to live unnoticed on the surface. When the group first appears, their survival is being threatened as the waste from a sports drink being dumped into the sewers is unintentionally poisonous to mutants. To stop the dumping, they repeatedly break in to taint the batches and are aided by Spyke/Evan Daniels who was rescued after being poisoned. When his mutation starts to become more obvious, he chooses to stay and become their champion. In the four season they appear in a single episode where they are stilling living in the sewers trying to survive the anti-mutant uprising by staying hidden. But appear on the surface after being directly attacked by Duncan Matthews to defend themselves before return into hiding. * CanonForeigner: Facade, Lucid, and Torpid were all created in the series. * EyepatchOfPower: Callisto, of course.

Major Spoilers below!''' ------ [[foldercontrol]] [[WMG: The X-Men]] [[folder:{{The Students}}]] [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/scott_6700.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Cyclops/Scott Summers]] !!!Code Name: Cyclops !!!Real Name: Scott Summers !!!!!! Voiced by KirbyMorrow -> ''"No, we're the X-Men. We're not kids anymore. You trained us, Wolverine, and you know something? We're good. Very good."'' The leader of Professor Xavier's students. A mutant who shoots [[FrickinLaserBeams high-intensity beams]] [[EyeBeams from his eyes]]. Unfortunately for him, he can never shut this power off. So he must always wear special visors or glasses made of ruby-quartz. Due to having a strong sense of morals and drive to be the leader, Scott can sometimes come off as a "boy scout" or "do-gooder". But he also has an extremely competitive side and tries hard to hold his temper in check, which can sometimes get the better of him. In contrast to his reputation for being stiff, he surprisingly shows a good sense of humor. During the series, Scott reunited with his brother Alex, who he thought died in the plane crash both were involved in. * ArchEnemy: Avalanche. * BigBrotherMentor * BigBrotherInstinct: Very protective of his long-lost little brother, Alex. * TheCaptain: And a badass one at that. This is easily one of Scott's most badass depictions yet. * EyeBeams * TheHero * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Kurt. FridgeBrilliance kicks in when you realize how after he was separated from his brother, Alex, Kurt ends up fulfilling this role for him. * {{Mugging The Monster}}/{{Bullying A Dragon}}: For some reason, everyone wants a piece of Cyke, especially Duncan and Avalanche, and ''especially'' when the former finds out ''why'' he wears those shades. * OfficialCouple: [[ForegoneConclusion He ends up with Jean.]] * PowerIncontinence * SexySpectacles - His pretty boy design flirts with the idea. * ShipTease: Rogue had a crush on Scott and he ''might'' have had some feelings for her. But see OfficialCouple. * ShirtlessScene: Scott's clothing is made of much weaker materials than everyone else apparently. * StandardizedLeader: The poster boy. * SunglassesAtNight: ''Don't switch the blade on the guy in shades, oh-no!'' * WaveMotionGun: Pulls one off against The Juggernaut by tearing off his visor and opening his eyes as wide as he can. Sure, this is TheJuggernaut and it only lasts a while, but it takes out huge chunks of the surrounding area. * {{Workaholic}}: PlayedForLaughs: Scott ''LOVES'' Danger Room Simulations, and is happy to suggest them as a possible group activity at two in the morning. ** He was just pulling their leg one time though. The other time, he was dead serious, and apparently disappointed when the idea was shot down. [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jean_grey_8572.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Jean Grey]] !!!Code Name: Unknown !!!Real Name: Jean Grey !!!!!! Voiced by VenusTerzo -> ''"It bugs me to always be treated like the weaker sex!"'' Jean was the most popular of the X-Men who attended Bayville High. Beautiful, athletic, and smart, she seemed to not have the problems the others faced trying to fit in and be normal. But her growing powers made her extremely insecure and showed she had her own burdens to bear. And she was ultimately shunned by her former friends when revealed to be a mutant. Jean dated Duncan Matthews for the first two seasons, but later fell for Scott, who had secretly loved her from afar. Jean also has a very close father and daughter type relationship with Professor Xavier. * ActionGirl * TheChick * CodeName: Averted. She uses her real name. ** This is lampshaded by Kurt in the tie-in comics. * CoolBigSis: To Kitty and the New Mutant girls. * HeroesWantRedHeads * ImpossibleHourglassFigure: Nice, uh, ''pants'', Jean. * MindOverMatter: Her powers are telepathy and telekinesis. * [[MoralGuardians Moral Guardian]]: Compare Jean to Cyclops in season one's ''Survival of the Fittest''. Both the Brotherhood and X-Men competed to get to the top of a mountain and place a flag before the other team. The catch was neither team could use their powers. But Scott had no problem cheating and using his powers after seeing Avalanche cheat. Jean though was quick to point out that the X-Men should be above such things and stick to the rules. Interesting that neither Scott or Jean were portrayed in a positive light here with Jean being shown as slightly overbearing and self serving. * RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Rogue's red. * PluckyGirl * PowerIncontinence: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Power Surge"]] is dedicated to have her go through this. * SpoiledSweet: She possessed everything that can make a girl the AlphaBitch. Beauty, popularity, and a jock boyfriend. Instead she was nice and willing to help anyone. * StrawFeminist: Comes up during ''Walk on the Wild Side'' and never really touched on again. She calls Scott out on trying to help and bitches at Duncan for buying tickets to a dance, when its supposed to be the girl who asks the guy out, while complaining about always feeling like she's treated as the weaker sex. ** Kind of done pretty badly because Jean takes an obvious joke Scott makes very personally, and keeps raging even when he apologizes and obviously regrets what he said. * {{Telepathy}} * {{Tsundere}}: Type B. She's the sweetest CoolBigSis, unless Duncan or Scott (or both) are around. [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nightcrawler_3321.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Nightcrawler/Kurt Wagner]] !!!Code Name: Nightcrawler !!!Real Name: Kurt Wagner !!!!!! Voiced by BradSwaile -> ''"Chicks dig the fuzzy dude!"'' Nightcrawler is a blue, furry mutant whose power is the ability to teleport. He uses a [[{{Glamour}} holographic image inducer]] in public to appear as a normal teenage boy. Nightcrawler is the [[LukeIAmYourFather biological son of Mystique]], who [[ParentalAbandonment dropped/abandoned him]] a long time ago. They don't get along. In contrast to his demonic appearance, Kurt is kind, fun loving, and a loyal friend. But there also is a sense of sadness about him as he longs to be accepted by the world outside despite his appearance. * ArchEnemy: Toad * BeastAndBeauty: Kurt and Amanda. * BerserkButton: ''Don't'' pull his tail. ** Also don't steal his Image Inducer. He completely ''flips out'' when Toad does it. * BigEater * CuteLittleFangs * DarkIsNotEvil: Don't be fooled by his demonic appearance. * FreakyIsCool: Kurt's girlfriend [[FanOfUnderDog Amanda]] isn't bothered at all by his true appearance. ** It's her FetishFuel. * FunPersonified: He loves to party. * GratuitousGerman * HappilyAdopted: Played with: Kurt loves his adoptive parents dearly and wouldn't trade them for the world, but as time goes on he shows a little too much interest in his birth parent and his origin. However, at the end he's shown to be unwilling to establish any kind of relationship with Mystique. * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Scott * {{Hologram}}: Kurt's normal Bayville High appearance is nothing more than a hologram. * TheLancer * NiceGuy * [[FanNickname Nickname]]: Fuzzy Blue Elf. ** [[InSeriesNickname Used in-series, too.]] * PlatonicLifePartners: With Kitty. * PluckyComicRelief * PoirotSpeak * PrettyBoy * SadClown: Sometimes, not nearly as often as the FanDumb would have you think. He gets his fair share of angst, but by the next episode he'll be back to making jokes and acting happily. * ShoutOut: He's the only X-Man to wear his original costume from the comics. * TeleFrag * TeleporterAccident: Forge tries to extend the range of Nightcrawler's teleportation, and ends up creating rifts to the hell-like dimension Nightcrawler uses to move from place to place. Needless to say, the inhabitants get out. * TeleportersAndTransporters * UglyCute: "Ugly" in-universe (He's repeatedly been compared to a big blue rat), ''freaking adorable'' to the fans. [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rogue_2212.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Rogue]] !!!Code Name: Rogue !!!Real name: Unknown !!!!!! Voiced by Meghan Black -> ''"Me and Miss Popularity there are worlds apart, galaxies, but then I realized something. She would do the same thing for me."'' Rogue is a mysterious mutant who absorbs the memories and abilities of others through touch. Due to her powers, Rogue has become [[BrokenBird withdrawn, bitter, anti-social, and sullen]]. Only after learning to trust the other X-Men, does she begin to open up. Rogue is Mystique's adopted daughter. But Rogue turns her back on Mystique after learning that she was only using her and joins the X-Men. She develops a massive crush on Cyclops, but later accepted that Scott loved Jean and not her. * ActionGirl * AmericanAccents: [[DeepSouth Dixie]] * AllLoveIsUnrequited: Her love for Cyclops can never be returned. ** PromotedToLoveInterest: Her counterpart of the comics never had romantic feelings for Scott. * {{Badass}}: Due to the nature of her power, most Danger Room scenes have her instead use basic training and martial arts to deal with the robotic threats and use her powers sporadically. Shown off in ''Cajun Spice'', where she uses her power for mind reading only and mostly takes out the Rippers with just outmatching them in fighting skills. * BlessedWithSuck: Her powers mean she can never touch anyone without risking their lives. ** Significantly less so in this adaptation; she often uses her powers to knock out opponents, and then proceeds to use those to take care of the rest of them. Or if one of her friends are knocked out anyway, she takes their powers as an extra boost to the group's fighting strength. She definitely uses it much more liberally not to mention more effectively than often portrayed. * TheChick: The first brotherhood chick. ** SixthRanger: After her HeelFaceTurn. * DeadpanSnarker * EnergyAbsorption * {{Goth}}: A huge departure from her SouthernBelle comic persona. And it proved to be quite popular. Some Comic writers (notably Grant Morrison) wanted to CanonImmigrant this, but never got the chance to. Instead it appears X-23 has absorbed this trait when adapted into the Comics. * GreenEyedMonster: Rogue shows some jealousy toward Jean, possibly due to her [[PowerIncontinence own power's drawback]] and Jean seeming to be perfect in every way. This becomes clear in season two's ''Power Surge'' where Jean can telepathically hear Rogue snark on her for winning an award, and later for believing Professor Xavier gives Jean preferential treatment. Knowing that Scott, who she has a crush on, really loves Jean doesn't help either. At the end, she acknowledges that for all their differences, Jean does care for her. * HeelFaceTurn: She first joined the Brotherhood before joining the X-Men. * {{Hopeless Suitor}}: For Scott. * MostCommonSuperpower: again, [[MsFanservice it's Rogue.]] * NoNameGiven: She's referred to as 'a rogue' by Xavier in her origin episode, then she expresses a lack of memory. Since then, her name was never revealed in the show, and she was only referred to as Rogue. Many have taken to calling her Anna Marie, her current comic name, but it's more of a fanon thing right now. * OddFriendship: With Kitty. The girls have nothing in common, but get along great. Well, they eventually do, earlier episodes showed them as not being able to stand each other. * OnlyOneName * RedOniBlueOni: The red to Jean's blue. * RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: Rogue made quick best friends with Risty Wilde, a girl from Manchester, England. They seemed to have a lot in common and some fans were getting some SchoolgirlLesbians vibes from the two. That came to a halt when we learned Risty was actually her [[{{Squick}} mother Mystique in disguise.]] * ShipTease: Beside the aforementioned crush on Scott, in the later seasons she had one full episode of blatant ShipTease with Gambit, plus scattered moments in other episodes. ** Though, according to the character designed and occasional director of the series, they kept this to a minimum because a lot of the writing team shipped Scott and Rogue. * StrangeGirl * WakeupMakeup: Rogue is never seen without her makeup. Even when Avalanche pushed her into a pool, or when she ''just'' steps out of the shower, her make-up is completely intact. Though there is one episode in season 4, "Cajun Spice," where Rogue falls into a lake and comes out makeup-free. [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kitty_3176.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Shadowcat/Kitty Pryde]] !!!Code Name: Shadowcat !!!Real Name: Kitty Pryde !!!!!! Voiced by Maggie Blue O'Hara -> ''"I don't have any gifts, just a curse."'' A mutant from Northbrook, Illinois whose ability allows her to become intangible. Shadowcat is the youngest member of the team and is characterized by [[ThePollyanna her upbeat nature and cheerfulness]]. She usually pals around with Nightcrawler since they are about the same age. Her on-again off-again romance with Avalanche was a sub-plot that continued through all four seasons. She first develops a crush on him while still in school, but it turned out he was only using her to steal test answers. Later, even though they are on opposite teams, Lance saves her life and her opinion of him changes. They date for a while, but their differences break them up, before ultimately reigniting their romantic relationship after the fight against Apocalypse. * AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Somewhat subverted in that Kitty was attracted to the ''good'' person inside of Lance. Although to a 15 year old girl being pursued by an older bad boy wasn't exactly a turn-off. * CuteClumsyGirl: The only class she doesn't ace is gym. * DatingCatwoman: With Avalanche. * TheDitz: She started as one, but this mostly stopped after the first season. ** DitzyGenius: She's shown to be well versed with the Mansion's computer system, and was stated to be a straight A student. So its more that she just acts a little ditzy. * DrivesLikeCrazy: Her driving even scares Wolverine, due to her habit of phasing the car through obstacles. Scott was so scared he swore to never drive again. * InformedJudaism: The only evidence that she's Jewish is a scene of her lighting the menorah in her home in the ChristmasEpisode. * [[IntangibleMan Intangible Girl]] * MoralityPet: Since season two on, definitely Lance's. * NaiveNewcomer: She definitely feels like a fish out of water when she first joins the X-Men, being particularly weirded out by Kurt's appearance at first. * OfficialCouple: She gets back together with Lance in the last episode. * PlatonicLifePartners: With Kurt. * PluckyGirl * [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]]: She can be a brainiac sometimes. ** TheChick: With shades of this. * TeenGenius: A straight A student (although her intelligence was somewhat downplayed compared to other versions of Shadowcat). * ValleyGirl: She stopped, like totally, after the first season. For sure. [[/folder]] ----- [[folder:{{The Teachers}}]] [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/logan_6921.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Wolverine/Logan]] !!!Code Name: Wolverine !!!Real Name: Unknown, goes by Logan !!!!!! Voiced by {{Scott McNeil}} -> ''"We're definitely gonna need more instructors. An' maybe a couple of tanks."'' The X-Men's top fighter and chief drill instructor to the students. His keen senses help him track down adversaries and alert him of danger ahead. His healing powers make him nearly impossible to defeat in a brawl. Adamantium claws are capable of shredding enemies and just about any inanimate object as well. His past is a mystery to everyone, including himself. It is a rather lengthy past as well because his healing factor has drastically slowed the aging of his body. He was already an adult by World War II. Unlike in other X-Men series, Wolverine plays a minor role in ''XMenEvolution'' and is more of a PapaWolf than carousing {{Bad Ass}}. * BadassTeacher * {{Badbutt}}: God forbid he makes someone bleed with those claws. * BruiserWithASoftCenter: He gradually warms up to Kitty and Kurt nicknaming them "Half-pint" and "Elf" respectively. * CoolOldGuy: The guy was around helping Captain America in WWII. * DrillSergeantNasty: Can be at times; see TrainingFromHell below. * HealingFactor * HotBloodedSideburns * IntergenerationalFriendship: With Kitty and Rogue. * MysteriousPast: Some episodes go into his past... a little. * OppositeSexClone: X-23 * PapaWolf: Hurt any of his X-Men at your own risk. Especially Kitty and X-23. * TeamDad * TrainingFromHell: This trope gets first {{deconstructed}}, and then ''{{reconstructed}}'' - in the first X-23 episode, it's established that he can be pretty harsh with training the younger X-Men-to-be, to the point that Rogue wouldn't admit she'd gotten better (after the last episode's events) to avoid it. After his experience with the aforementioned {{Tykebomb}}, he loosens up because "Sometimes you just gotta let kids be kids". He realizes that pushing teenagers too far in training is detrimental, and he eases up by the end. Contains hilarity in that Rogue of all people was pretending to still be sick in an effort to evade his training session. * WolverineClaws * WolverinePublicity: Subverted. Amazingly, Wolverine was mostly a background player due to being an adult on a show where the focus was on the kids. And it worked pretty well, mind you. * TheWorfEffect: Need to make The Juggernaut look like a huge threat? Have him kick Wolverine's ass. [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/storm_9575.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Storm/Ororo Munroe]] !!!Code Name: Storm !!!Real Name: Ororo Munroe !!!!!! Voiced by Kirsten Williamson -> ''"I'm a weather-witch, not a snow plow. I'm doing the best I can."'' One of Professor Xavier's top teachers, Storm is seen as a role model by the students. She is also one of the most powerful mutants alive due to her ability to manipulate the weather. One of her few weaknesses is her claustrophobia which was explored in her one spotlight episode ''African Storm''. * ActionGirl * BadassTeacher * BlowYouAway * BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler: She becomes one of Apocalypse's Horsemen.]] * {{Claustrophobia}} * {{Flight}}: One of the few characters that can fly in this X-Men Universe. * ImpossibleHourglassFigure combined with ShesGotLegs: WordOfGod from the guy who designed the characters, Storm has very long shapely legs and curvy hips. * MakingASplash: Can produce rain, of course. * ShockAndAwe * TeamMom: And aunt to Spyke. * WeatherDissonance * [[WhiteHairedPrettyGirl White Haired Pretty Woman]] [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beast_4055.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Beast/Hank [=McCoy=]]] !!!Code Name: Beast !!!Real Name: Hank [=McCoy=] !!!!!! Voiced by MichaelKopsa -> ''"I can see now that teaching mutants will require entirely different skills."'' Hank [=McCoy=] was a popular teacher at Bayville High who held a dark secret. His mutation gave him a burly physique with large hands and feet and unparalleled agility, but also a feral side to his mind. After school hours, he worked on a serum he hoped would stop his primal regressions when simply reciting Shakespeare wasn't enough to keep him focused. But unfortunately his beastly side was set free by an attempt to make a better serum, turning him into a blue furred beast. He damaged the school, also threatening Principal Kelly in an uncontrollable rage. The X-Men eventually were able to locate and subdue him. Soon the rage subsided, but life would never be the same. His rampage at the school and his drastic and permanent change in physical appearance would make any public appearance too startling for a general population unaware of the mutants among them. Hank remained at the Xavier Institute as a teacher for the New Recruits. Similar to Wolverine and Storm, he is more of a bit player due to the focus being on the students. * BadassTeacher * BewareTheNiceOnes * CoolTeacher: In the eyes of the New Mutants, in stark contrast to Wolverine SternTeacher or Jean and Scott's PoliticallyMotivatedTeacher mentality * GeniusBruiser * GentleGiant: Sure he ''looks'' big and scary, but he has the temperament of a teddy bear. * SesquipedalianLoquaciousness * ShoutOutToShakespeare: Not only a practice of his, it's also how Spyke gets through to him. * TeamDad: To the New Mutants. * TVGenius [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prox_2483.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Professor X/Charles Xavier]] !!!Code Name: Professor X !!!Real Name: Charles Xavier !!!!!! Voiced by DavidKaye -> ''"You know, handling defeat is as much mark of your character as coming home the victor. And from what I see, this was a lesson, apparently, much needed."'' The world's most powerful telepath and founder of the X-Men. His goal is to maintain a peaceful co-existence between humans and mutants. He created a school which trains mutants to use their powers responsibly and discreetly in order to prevent panic from the general human population. This philosophy puts him at odds with mutants such as Magneto who believe mutants should be dominating humanity rather than hiding from it. * ActualPacifist * BaldOfAwesome * BigGood * BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler: Like Storm, is captured by Apocalypse and turned into one of his Horsemen.]] * TheComicallySerious * CoolChair * CoolOldGuy * FriendlyEnemy: How Xavier sees Magneto, although their friendship is not as emphasized as in other portrayals. * NonActionGuy: Justified since his power is telepathy. He ''could'' perform MindRape and the like, making him a destructive force, if he wasn't so moral. * [[spoiler: ParentalNeglect: He didn't mean to be neglectful, ''he didn't know the kid existed!'']] * TheProfessor * TeamDad * {{Telepathy}} [[/folder]] ------ [[folder:New Mutants/New Recruits]] !!!Code Name: Iceman !!!Real Name: Robert 'Bobby' Drake !!!!!! Voiced by Andrew Francis The unofficial leader of the 'baby' group the New Recruits. Bobby joined, along with his team, during the break between season 1 and 2 and appears mostly in B-plots and eventually becomes the SixthRanger once Spyke leaves the main team. YMMV on whether or not he's the [[IncrediblyLamePun coolest]] new addition or the TooDumbToLive Scrappy who ruins the series (Thought primarily the first option to the less crazy fans). * AnIcePerson: What did you expect? * BrilliantButLazy: He's shown in the few times he gets to be on a mission to be a capable team player, and was a fairly competent leader during a Danger Room Session, but usually his immaturity gets in the way. Also Note that Bobby is an Omega level mutant in the comics, but can't stay focused to learn his full potential. * CharacterDevelopment: Starts off as nothing more than an extra face. By Season four, he officially replaces Evan's role in the series, getting to hang out with the main X-Men. * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Cannonball. ** PlatonicLifePartners: With Jubilee. [[ShipTease As far]] [[DidTheyOrDidntThey as we]] [[PutOnABus know anyway]]. * TheHero: To the New Recruits anyway. * TooDumbToLive: He STOLE THE X-JET FOR A JOYRIDE! He BROKE INTO THE DANGER ROOM FOR UNSUPERVISED TRAINING! HE PUT AN ICEBERG IN FRONT OF THE SHIP HE WAS SAILING ON! * TotallyRadical: To some extent, not as bad as Spyke though. * WhatCouldHaveBeen: Bobby was the original candidate for the last member of the original team, but the [[ExecutiveMeddling Executives decided they wanted a]] TokenMinority and pushed for a black character in the TrueCompanions. !!!Code Name: Cannonball !!!Real Name: Samuel 'Sam' Guthrie !!!!!! Voiced by Bill Switzer The tall, blond southern boy who joined at the same time as the other NewRecruits. More well rounded and likable than Bobby in some terms, he's easily identifiable by being a head taller than most of the students, even some of the original cast. * AmericanAccents: A southern drawl, not really as strong as most versions though, tends to be {{Flanderized}} in Fanfics. * BarrierWarrior: Doesn't ever use his power to fight, he's more of an evacuation type person. In the final fight, all he does is fly Rogue to Apocalypse's strong hold. * {{Flight}}: His power allows him to fly like a rocket, however unlike most people, he can't stop or float, meaning his only way to land is to crash land. * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Bobby. * HoistByHisOwnPetard: Could have beat Logan in a race, but got cocky and decided to use his powers. Lost horribly because of this. * {{Geek}}: WordOfGod bios for the New Recruits refer to him as such. * GentleGiant: The tallest of the New Recruits, but easily the nicest. * TheKlutz: He Certainly crashes a lot. * TheLancer / TheBigGuy: To the New Recruits anyway. !!!Code Name: Jubilee !!!Real Name: Jubilation Lee !!!!!! Voiced by Chiara Zanni Usually seen with Bobby, Sam, and Jamie, Jubilee is the second most seen female mamber of the New Recruits during Season 2. She's PutOnABus despite proving to be rather popular amongst some of the fans when the [[ExecutiveMeddling executives]] decided there were too many characters. She has the ability to shoot firework-like 'plasmoids' either in the shape of actual fireworks or beams. Easily identifiable by her yellow jacket. * AsianAirhead * BrilliantButLazy: Her WordOfGod official bio describes her as this, not really seen however. * EmbarrassingFirstName: Jubilation, never referred to as such in the show though. * LethalHarmlessPowers: She fires explosive plasmoids! Regularly seen firing them at friends/other students. * OneOfTheBoys: Only seen hanging out with Girls in two appearances, every other scene, she's always with Bobby (And to lesser extent Sam and Jamie), either for his crazy adventures, or for the ShipTease. * PutOnABus: Alongside Wolfsbane she was written out at the beginning of season 3. [[spoiler:Came back in the finale to help fight Apocalypse]]. * ShoutOut: Constantly wears a yellow jacket when out of uniform. Season 2 ends with her clothes damaged enough to turn her normal jeans into shorts, making her look exactly how she did in the comics (Only with longer hair). * {{Tomboy}}: How some fanfics about her are usually written. !!!Code Name: Magma !!!Real Name: Amara Aquilla !!!!!! Voiced by Alexandra Carter The only one to get an episode of focus (two actually) but also the most powerful. Magma, as her name suggests, can generate heat and fire, along with to some extent control lava. A princess in her home country, Amara is one of the more girly members of the group, not to mention a little of a ShrinkingViolet at first. * ADayInTheLimelight: Ends up getting two episodes of focus. * DefrostingIceQueen: Similar to the one below, Amara was apparently going to be one of these, assumed to have happened off screen. * EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Not really mentioned or touched upon, but official bios confirm she's still a princess. * NaiveNewcomer * TheOjou * PlayingWithFire * RaceLift: She's actually from Brazil in both show and comics, but her comic appearance changed her into a blue-eyed Caucasian Brazilian. * RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: With Tabitha. * TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Tabitha's/Jubilee's Tomboy. !!!Code Name: Wolfsbane !!!Real Name: Rahne Sinclair !!!!!! Voiced by Chantal Strand A Scottish mutant who can turn into a wolf or half whenever she wants who primarily spent her appearances in the background or as a wolf, but got an episode or two speaking. Like Jubilee, she was written out of the series, despite being popular, thought her lack of importance to any plot is a noted factor. * FanService: Got a swimsuit scene in the episode 'Retreat', not only the first to do so but also the only New Recruit girl to wear a two piece. * OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: She's a mutant human girl who can turn into either a full wolf or half wolf/human hybrid, her clothes slowly disapear while transforming (Likely made of unstable molecules, this being a MarvelUniverse after all) only to reform while transforming. * NotCompletelyUseless: Most of the time her power to turn into a ''dog'' seemed almost completely useless, until the kid's needed her to sniff out Beast after he'd been kidnapped by some Big-Foot hunters. * PutOnABus: [[spoiler: Until she was called in to help in the finale.]] * Scotireland: Downplayed. She has a very little to non-existant accent that almost sounds like the voice of a fairy. * ShipTease: She played around with Sam & helped Jamie with Homework which may explain her ships with them, butthe most popular Rahne-related ships with Roberto, based on the episode ''Retreat'' (being the only episode both of them actually speak in full sentances) * TheVoiceless: As said before, got two speaking roles, in one of them all she does is laugh a little, usually she's just in the background or in her wolf form. !!!Code Name: Sunspot !!!Real Name: Roberto da Costa !!!!!! Voiced by Michael Coleman A rich Brazilian boy with the power to absorb solar energy to gain super human capabilities, such as strength, speed, agility, and, in the first season two episode, fly. He does very little for the show but still retains a small fanbase of NeedsMoreLove type fans. * FlyingBrick: Only seen flying once, but his powers make him one. * HotBlooded * ThePowerOfTheSun * ShipTease: With Rahne in the episode ''Retreat'', Namely the seen in which they're both wearing Swimsuits and staring romantically at each other. * TheVoiceless: Speaks in one episode only. !!!Code Name: Berzerker !!!Real Name: Ray Crisp !!!!!! Voiced by Tony Sampson A Morlock in the comics, Ray is arguably one of the more popular characters in the series who got considerably more development here than his comic self. * AbortedArc: Was originally going to have a rivalry with Sunspot, but it was dropped after one episode. * AscendedExtra: Appears once in the comics as an AxeCrazy Morlock, here appears in a good number of B-Plots, usually as Bobby's second Male Best friend an speaks in almost every appearance. * BerserkButton: Apparently hitting him in the face with a ball when using your powers in a non-powered game of volleyball is a sure fire way to set him off. * BerserkerRage: His codename ''is'' [[IncrediblyLamePun Berzerker]], after all. * JerkWithAHeartOfGold: WordOfGod claims this as the reason they created him, they wanted a New Recruit who has a "bad boy" vibe, someone who acts tough but is really nice. In the show however he's almost always expressing the heart part. * HeyItsThatVoice: Hey, it's [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy Eddy!]] * OnlySaneMan: Surprisingly, he comes off as one of the most mature of the New Mutants. Yes, he has a temper but that doesn't distract that hes the least seen when the other members are doing their normal shenanigans * PsychoElectro: Not as powerful or as psychotic as some, but does have serious anger issues which were addressed at times and did hold himself out against STORM (who at the time was upgraded by Apocalypse). * YouGottaHaveBlueHair: He has blond hair with a spiked, orange fringe that to most people just looks ridiculous. ** It might be dyed, though. !!!Code Name: Multiple !!!Real Name: James 'Jamie' Madrox !!!!!! Voiced by David Kaye (not [[DavidKaye the one who voices Professor X]]) The youngest of the ensemble, Jamie is like the little brother none of them wanted, his power to duplicate himself, his clothes, and any object he's holding but only when hit with external kinetic energy (such as being hit/knocked over), which causes him to get in the way due to his clumsiness. * AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Not really anyone's brother, but they act like it nonetheless. * BrattyHalfPint: A rare, non-Scrappy case! * CheerfulChild: Hence why he's not Multiple ''Man'' like the comics. * InNameOnly: Compared to his comic self at least, Who was the same age as most of the other X-Men. * MesACrowd * TheTeamWannabe: He keeps begging and pleading to be let in on the antics the other kids get themselves into, it usually never works. Which is actually a good thing. * VagueAge: While WordOfGod says they had no idea how old most of the characters were, Jamie's exact age in particular is uncertain, he was referred to as 'like 12' but this may just be an exaggeration.

Voiced by Neil Denis -> ''"Come on, Rogue, get with the program. Shake that thing!"'' A mutant from New York City and also Storm's nephew. He has the ability to project bone-like spikes from his skin. Spyke is stubborn and lacks respect for authority. This often puts him in conflict with the other X-Men. When his powers can't be controlled he leaves the X-Men, and joins the Morlocks, becoming their champion. * AntiHero: Part of Evan's character development. At the start of the series he's a type I; he's the less serious minded of the cast, regularly skipping out on meetings and acting really hot headed. After his secondary mutation, and seeing the living condition of the Morlocks, Spyke grows into a Type III, taking to vigilantism to protect mutants who are being bullied and attacked by humans, but his heart remains in the right place. * BadWithTheBone * TheBigGuy: He's the most reckless and prone to violence. * CanonForeigner * CommutingOnABus: Part of the main cast for the first two and a half seasons. He leaves the X-Men during the third season to join the Morlocks. He is all but forgotten about till he reappears in a season four episode. * DarkSkinnedBlond * FadSuper * GoodIsNotNice: In Season 4. * HotBlooded: It makes the future evolution of his powers quite fitting. * IncendiaryExponent: Flaming spikes after "Uprising". * JerkWithAHeartOfGold * JustLikeRobinHood: After joining the Morlocks. Though he never actually steals, he partakes in Street Justice to protect mutants. * OriginalGeneration * TheRival: To Quicksilver in their introductory episode. * SkeletonsInTheCoatCloset: An involuntary version of the trope "Uprising". * SpearCounterpart: To the comics' Marrow, powerset-wise (and him joining the Morlocks later also reflects this, since Marrow was a Morlock to begin with). The show's producers stated that, at the time, they didn't know about Marrow, hence why Spyke's so similar to her. * SpikeShooter * TokenMinority * TookALevelInBadass: After joining the Morlocks. * TotallyRadical: If the hair and skateboard weren't enough of a clue. * WellIntentionedExtremist * WordOfGod: The creators state that Spyke was not supposed to be a male Marrow.

Voiced by Christopher Grey -> ''"You're making it yours Kitty. Once you own it, nothing can own you."'' A mutant with the ability to manipulate the earth by generating seismic waves from his body. Avalanche came from the same home town as Shadowcat, but had a much different upbringing. He grew up as a streetwise orphan who seemed angry at the world. Confused and alienated, he was a perfect target for Mystique and the Brotherhood. Lance was one of the most complex characters. He started off as a punk, before becoming more of a troubled youth, and then ultimately showing responsibility and maturity. His romantic interest in Kitty Pryde and their relationship played a major role in his attempts to change. It even leads him to attempt a major HeelFaceTurn by joining the X-Men. As the oldest Brotherhood member, Lance is often the defacto leader and feels responsible for the others. * ArchEnemy: Cyclops * BerserkButton: Since Season Two on, for your own good don't hurt or threat Kitty... * CompositeCharacter: Lance has very little to do with the comic book Avalanche outside of team affiliation. He is more an {{expy}} of the X-Men character Julio Esteban Richter aka Rictor. In his looks, personality, and the way he channels his seismic powers. In the first season he had more in common with his comic self, but not by much. * DatingCatwoman: He dates Shadowcat during the second season. The Brotherhood tease him for this. * DishingOutDirt * EvilCounterpart[=/=]{{Foil}}: To Cyclops - both are a BigBrotherMentor and usually the most responsible member of their team, both are orphans, and both tend to take the initiative. The differences end there though as while Scott is calm and collected, Lance is impatient and impulsive, and Scott has turned his own misfortunes in life towards more productive endeavours as opposed to Lance's self-destructive behaviour. Small wonder they're each other's ArchEnemy. * FingerlessGloves * HairTriggerTemper * HeelFaceTurn: Attempted one and almost succeeded, but settled in as a WildCard. * HotBlooded * JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Starts out as a JerkAss in the first season, before becoming a JerkWithAHeartOfGold at the start of the fourth season. * LeitMotif: Summoning it is his main power. The earthquakes are just a RequiredSecondaryPower. * LoveRedeems: Somewhat. He definitely tries to change for Kitty, but can go only so far, and decides to not stay in the New Mutants group after his disastrous and brief stunt there. His heroic acts in ''No Good Deed'' had nothing to do with Kitty, which showed he had it in him all along. He also showed up with the rest of the Brotherhood in ''Ascension part 2'' to help the X-Men fight Apocalypse after first refusing. He immediately goes to save Kitty, which can be either seen as their romance being reignited or a simple PetTheDog moment from him. * MenaceDecay: Went from a unsympathetic PsychoForHire or PunchClockVillain in the comics to an angry, yet notably sympathetic character in the show. ** And in the series itself, in his first episode he's destroying his school and in following episodes his powers generate an OhCrap response, to being love stuck on Kitty for the second season to then not even bothering any more either way to the third. In the fourth he becomes a JerkWithAHeartOfGold and is shown to be the most powerful member of the Brotherhood, possibly even more so than the other villains not over 50. * RaceLift: The comics' Avalanche was Greek. Presumably he was made American to ease him fitting into the setting. * StevenUlyssesPerhero: If you switch his first and last names you get pretty close to his codename. * [[TallDarkAndHandsome Tall, Dark, Handsome]] [[TallDarkAndSnarky AND Snarky.]] * TroubledButCute: Bad boy, check. Rebel attitude, check. Antisocial behavior, check. Difficult home life, check. Fingerless gloves, check. Heart of gold, check. * UnskilledButStrong: Has the potential to be the most destructive recurring mutant in the series and for the most part is, but he lacks the control and the patience to make him a real powerhouse.

Voiced by RichardIanCox -> ''"Look, When you live as fast as I do, there ain't enough things to occupy my time. I gotta entertain myself."'' A mutant that can move at the speed of sound. Pietro is arrogant, deceptive and his loyalty is always in question. He would betray the Brotherhood and his sister Wanda at the command of his father Magneto, yet showed no compassion at his father's disappearance at the hands of Apocalypse. Pietro has a stormy relationship with his twin sister, although their relationship, as well the one with his Brotherhood teammates, improve during season four. * AdaptationalVillainy * ArchEnemy: In his introductory episode with Spyke, which sets him up as TheRival. This doesn't show up in many later episodes though, mostly because Spyke [[CommutingOnABus joins the Morlocks]]. * TheCasanova: Or at least, the potential to become one. The episode with the dance has Boom-Boom implying that the members of the Brotherhood (besides Lance) don't want to go because they can't get dates. Blob and Toad go with Boom-Boom. Pietro shows up with ''four'' random girls. * FragileSpeedster * JerkAss * MotorMouth * ReliableTraitor * SmugSnake * SuperSpeed * {{Wimpification}}: Tends to suffer from this in some Lance/Pietro fanfics. * WeakButSkilled: Pietro is a full-blown FragileSpeedster and in most direct confrontations he goes down in one hit. However, Pietro is the first member of the brotherhood seen with considerable control of his power and the other aspects his power might give him, no doubt having trained in its uses alongside his father. Its to be noted that Pietro is often the Brotherhood member who wins the most battles (or at least before the inclusion of his sister on the team), combined with MotorMouth CasualDangerDialogue * WellDoneSonGuy: Pietro constantly looks for approval from his father. It explains (but ''not'' justifies) a LOT. * WhiteHairedPrettyboy [[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/toad_3812.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Toad/Todd Tolensky]] !!!Code Name: Toad !!!Real Name: Todd Tolensky !!!!!! Voiced by Noel Fisher -> ''"Hey, if you can't be cool, be feared. My momma always told me that."'' A repugnant mutant who physically resembles a humanoid toad. And like a toad, can leap great distances, and possesses an extremely long and agile tongue. A social outcast, he has found some acceptance with the Brotherhood, where his talents for thievery and petty crime can be put to good use. Toad is often portrayed as the whipping boy of the Brotherhood, but he also is treated like a little brother, and is even protected by Blob. Toad is known for his extremely poor hygiene which doesn't help him in his attempts to get Wanda Maximoff to like him. * {{Adorkable}}: In his better days. * AmericanAccents: [[BigApplesauce Noo Yawk]], [[VerbalTic yo]]. * ArchEnemy: Nightcrawler. * ButtMonkey: Pretty much defines him. ** TheChewToy: And almost always PlayedForLaughs: ---> (After crashing a jet into a possessed Magneto) "Did we win?" Metal starts flying around. "Oh yeah... we never win." * FrogsAndToads * FunPersonified * GoodEyesEvilEyes: has very pale yellow eyes when in civilian mode and red eyes when in villain mode. Either he wears yellow contacts as a disguise that looks as unnatural as his real colour, or wears red contacts to look even weirder, or has the pointless and un-toadlike ability to change his eye colour. * HopelessSuitor: Even though he has zero chance, he still pursues Wanda, ** ContinuityNod: The original Toad was this to the original Scarlet Witch too. * InASingleBound * {{Leitmotif}}: Sing it with me...''T-O-A-D, T-O-A-D! Iss'sall good, yo! See I know, some things ya gotta undastand about Toad.'' * OverlyLongTongue * PluckyComicRelief: One of the funniest characters in the series. * PuppyDogEyes: He has a habit of making these. * RaceLift: Same deal as Avalanche, except Toad was British in the comics. * ScreamsLikeALittleGirl * ThePigPen: probably some of his oft-commented upon body odour is due to his mutation, but the fact he showers on a monthly basis ain't helping.

Voiced by MichaelDobson -> ''"Unstoppable? Meet the unmovable!"'' A humongous boy from Texas, Fred Dukes is among the strongest mutants in the world. Blob is the least intelligent of the Brotherhood, but his brawn helps counterbalance his lack of brains. His hefty build and less than charming personality often make him a target of public ridicule. The social isolation and bad temper made him a prime candidate for recruitment into the Brotherhood by Mystique. He was initially treated well by the X-Men until he attempted to kidnap Jean. * BerserkButton: [[PunctuatedForEmphasis DO NOT LAUGH AT THE BLOB!]] * BlobMonster * TheBrute * DumbMuscle: He did get a little smarter before the end of the series, a ''little''. * FatBastard * MightyGlacier * PetTheDog: He treats Toad like a little brother and is more of a GentleGiant when Mystique isn't around. * StalkerWithACrush: Poor Blob. He took Jean being nice to him to mean she ''liked'' him. Unreasonable expectations indeed.

Magneto claimed it was necessary because he was unable to help control her dangerous powers, but Wanda always resented him for it. Mystique helped Wanda escape from the asylum in order to bolster the Brotherhood ranks. However, Wanda was more interested in revenge against her father than fighting for the Brotherhood. Wanda suffers from emotional damage from her years locked up in an asylum. But she appears to regain much of her sanity as the series progresses. Wanda has the ability to "hex" other mutants' powers to make them go haywire. * AxCrazy: When it comes to Magneto and Quicksilver. * BrokenBird * TheChick: The current Brotherhood chick. * CurbStompBattle: In her first appearance, she absolutely ''devastated'' the X-Men. * CuteAndPsycho: For some. * DarkMagicalGirl * [[spoiler:FakeMemories: Had these implanted by Mastermind - he basically replaced every bad memory she had of Magneto with good ones.]] * {{Goth}}: Even mores than Rogue. * HotWitch * [[spoiler: SanityStrengthening: Ironically, became less psycho and more kind and helpful towards others after Mastermind messed with her head.]] * MindRape: [[spoiler: Magneto has Mastermind do this to her, replacing her bad memories with good ones so she believes Magneto was a loving father. ]] * ParentalAbandonment: The source of her problems. * TheUnFavorite: Magneto always chooses Quicksilver over her.

Voiced by Christopher Judge -> ''"And now the whole world will know of us."'' The mysterious Magneto is one of the most powerful mutants alive. He has a long history with Charles Xavier, both as a friend and an enemy. Magneto has given up on the idea of peaceful co-existence between mutants and humans. His philosophy is in direct opposite to that of Xavier, who still believes mutants and humans can live together in relative peace. Magneto envisions himself and other mutants dominating over humanity as the only way to prevent bloodshed between the two groups. However, Magneto's dream is threatened by Apocalypse who has his own plans for world domination. * AffablyEvil: You can't ignore there is a certain charm to Magneto. * AmbiguouslyJewish: In the episode ''Operation: Rebirth'', Wolverine rescues a young Erik from a WWII German controlled camp. Although it was not named in the episode, it was clearly a Nazi concentration camp. * AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type III.

Mystique is the leader of the Brotherhood, but took orders from Magneto, until leaving him after she felt he questioned her loyalty and talent. She is intelligent, cunning, deceptive and dangerous with her with shapeshifting abilities.\\\ She changed into human form and used the name Raven Darkholme to became the Bayville High school principal, giving her the opportunity to monitor Xavier's students as well as her Brotherhood members. Later, she fought Storm, but was easily punched out. Afterwards, she helped the X-Men fight Magneto, but was knocked into his enhancement machine, and was presumed dead by the X-Men following Asteroid M's destruction.\\\ But she returned later, with a permanent RaceLift applied to her by Storm's aforementioned punch. She infiltrated and destroyed Xavier's school by disguising herself as Professor X. Several students barely escaped with their lives.\\\ She raised Rogue and is Nightcrawler's mother, although neither knew her true identity growing up. * ArchEnemy: Was this to Storm during the first season. * BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler: She is turned into one of Apocalypse's Horsemen.]] * EvilPlan: She pulls off [[MagnificentBitch a great one]] on the X-Men by impersonating the then-missing Professor X and getting Wolverine to go missing so he won't identify her.

In the first season, her ShapeshifterDefaultForm was essentially a Caucasian woman with light blue skin, long velvety red hair, and white eyes with gray pupils. But in the rest of the series, it is a LittleBitBeastly African-American woman with dark bluish-green skin, wilder reddish-orange hair, CuteLittleFangs, and [[AnimalEyes yellow cat-like eyes]]. Averted with her voice, dialect, and accent, which remained exactly as they were prior to the Lift. * [[spoiler: ReformedButRejected: At least that's the impression she tried to give Kurt and Rogue by the end of the series.]] * SassyBlackWoman: Her post-RaceLift appearance and personality make her into a mild version of this, even though she still has the voice and dialect she had when she was still Caucasian. * SmugSnake * TheStarscream: She was always looking to break out from under Magneto. * TheVamp: An embodiment of this trope. * ViralTransformation: Her RaceLift was first triggered by Storm punching her out with a sweat-soaked, gloved fist, which left many of her genes on Mystique's face. When Magneto's machine enhanced her powers, it also multiplied Storm's invasive skin cells, which fused with Mystique's body, permanently changing her into her own equivalent of a Black woman. * WeaksauceWeakness: In the first season, exposure to any fog conjured by Storm would freeze Mystique where she stood into a HumanPopsicle.

Apocalypse is an ancient Egyptian mutant; he's the oldest character on the show, and also the most powerful. Milennia ago, he conquered Egypt and planned to use advanced technology (stolen from the previous Pharaoh, who had "[[AncientAstronauts descended from the sky]]") to reshape the world in his own image- turning many humans into mutants, and killing the rest.

[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mesmero_2381.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:320:Mesmero]] !!!Code Name: Mesmero !!!Real Name: Unknown !!!!!! Voiced by RonHalder -> ''"You don't know who you're interfering with here..."'' Apocalypse's servant; whether a mutant, a mystic, or something different is unknown, but he possesses psychic abilities that allow him to confront even Xavier on his own level. Believing himself to be a servant of destiny, he manipulated both the X-men and the Acolytes to steal the three keys to Apocalypse's prison, expecting to be rewarded by being made his right hand. Instead, upon gaining his freedom the ancient mutant withdrew his minion's powers and left him to his fate. * BaldOfEvil * TheDragon: To Apocalypse: while Mesmero is much weaker physically, he has the advantage of being able to move freely. * EvilIsNotAToy: Which he learns when Apocalypse abandons him. * MindRape: Mesmero introduces himself to the audience by turning a sleeping Jean's dreams into nightmares. * PowerTattoo: Those green patterns on his face. * SmugSnake * SquishyWizard * StrongAsTheyNeedToBe: Probably literally; whatever his own abilities, Apocalypse is clearly enhancing them, so that Mesmero's psychic strength varies from episode to episode depending on how much power Apocalypse is letting him use.

Voiced by AndreaLibman (''X23'') and Brittney Irvin (''Target X'') -> ''"Protect me? I left to protect you!"'' Trained from birth by HYDRA to become the ultimate weapon, X-23 underwent the same Weapon X modifications as Wolverine, being given his healing factor and adamantium bones and claws. She escapes, breaks into rival spy agency SHIELD and researches the X Men, before stalking the students over the institute. She begins capturing all of them in a bid to lure Logan into a confrontation, believing him to be responsible for what was done to her. Logan convinces her that he, too, is a victim, before chasing her off so that Nick Fury wouldn't find her. She would later appear after HYDRA captures Wolverine, where the two would work together in a bid to survive as Logan tries to talk X-23 out of seeking revenge. * ActionGirl: The best example in the series, taking down ''everyone'' she comes across. * AntagonisticOffspring: Towards Wolverine in her first appearance. She blamed him for HYDRA getting the idea to put her through the Weapon X program. It's very much played as an angry daughter attacking her father. * BadAss: She took out ''all'' the X Men save Wolverine, and only because he got her to see sense after she made him run for his life. Yes, she sent frakking '''{{Wolverine}}''' running. * BigBrotherMentor: Inverted, the younger X-23 tries to play this to Logan. * BrokenBird * CanonImmigrant: Was quickly brought into the mainstream Marvel lineup. ** Coming full circle when her outfit from the cartoon becomes available as downloadable content for her character - which is based on the comics version - in ''Ultimate MarvelVsCapcom3''. * DarkMagicalGirl: Despite her powers being ''not'' magical, her personality and backstory fit to a T. * DistaffCounterpart: To Wolverine. * DisneyDeath: She fakes her death blowing up HYDRA in a bid to evade SHIELD. * GoneHorriblyRight * GuileHero: She outsmarts everyone: SHIELD (breaking in and gaining information on the Institute,) Xavier (he finds her genuinely upset and allows himself to get close enough to be taken out,) the X Men (the only one not taken out is Logan,) HYDRA (she tries to fight Logan off from following her because she wanted to be captured so she could destroy them) and Logan himself (making him think she was on a suicide mission so that SHIELD won't come after her.) * HealingFactor: And she bitches out Logan when he doesn't heal as fast as she does. -->"Gimme a break kid, I started the morning by falling out of an airplane." ** Which is actually FridgeBrilliance considering that in-canon Wolverine Healing Factor is actually weaker do to a fact that its constantly healing him from metal poisoning as a result of having metal bones. So of course She heals faster as her own healing factor isn't impeded by roughly 300 lbs of indestructible metal. * HeelFaceTurn: At the end it's revealed she joins the X Men. * HellbentForLeather * [[IWillProtectHer I Will Protect Him]]: Turns out this was the reason she was so antagonistic towards Logan when she was being hunted. She didn't want him to be a target for Hydra. She also didn't want to risk killing him when she destroyed HYDRA. * IWorkAlone: She keeps shoving away Wolverine when he tries to help. Turns out it's not only because of the threat from HYDRA or SHIELD, but she intends to kill off HYDRA and Logan might get in the way. * JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Of the GoodIsNotNice variety. * LaserGuidedTykebomb * PsychoticSmirk: Flashes one to the Hydra leader who did the experiments on her, after calmly setting explosives that will kill them all. * RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Against first Logan then HYDRA. * UnkemptBeauty: Implied. When infiltrating Jean's room she acts girly with her teddy bear, before showing a dislike to her perfume. ** She ''does'' have Wolverine's ultra-sensitive sense of smell. Sniffing the nozzle was probably like sticking her head in a bucket of Chanel. http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mor_5201.png [[caption-width:338:The Morlocks]] -> ''"You're with the Morlocks, we understand you"'' The Morlocks are a secretive group of underground mutants whose mutations make them unable to live unnoticed on the surface. When the group first appears, their survival is being threatened as the waste from a sports drink being dumped into the sewers is unintentionally poisonous to mutants. To stop the dumping, they repeatedly break in to taint the batches and are aided by Spyke/Evan Daniels who was rescued after being poisoned. When his mutation starts to become more obvious, he chooses to stay and become their champion. In the four season they appear in a single episode where they are stilling living in the sewers trying to survive the anti-mutant uprising by staying hidden. But appear on the surface after being directly attacked by Duncan Matthews to defend themselves before return into hiding. * CanonForeigner: Facade, Lucid, and Torpid were all created in the series. * EyepatchOfPower: Callisto, of course.

* VagueAge: While WordOfGod says they had no idea how old most of the characters were, Jamie's exact age in particular is uncertain, he was referred to as 'like 13' but this may just be an exaggeration.

Nightcrawler is a blue, furry mutant whose power is the ability to teleport. He uses a [[{{Glamour}} holographic image inducer]] in public to appear as a normal teenage boy. Nightcrawler is the [[LukeIAmYourFather biological son of Mystique]], who [[ParentalAbandonment abandoned him]] a long time ago. They don't get along.

** He was just pulling their leg that one time though. though. The other time, he was dead serious, and apparently disappointed when the idea was shot down.
