After the ''Mutant Massacre'' storyline left the X-Men broken, members Shadowcat and Nightcrawler were sent to Muir Island in Scotland to recuperate. As a result, they weren't with the X-Men when the team sacrificed their lives to defeat [[EldritchAbomination The Adversary]] on national tv during ''The Fall of the Mutants'', and like the rest of the world, didn't know the X-Men [[ComicBookDeath got better]] afterwards. Creator/ChrisClaremont and artist Alan Davis decided to use this opportunity to put the characters into a new team that incorporated the British characters ComicBook/CaptainBritain and his MagicalGirlfriend Meggan, who had little U.S. exposure at that point but ties to the X-Men through Cap's sister Psylocke.

* OddBallInTheSeries: This series was not only LighterAndSofter than the other x-related titles, took place on a different continent altogether (Europe), and had many non-mutants on the roster (a rarity for "X-teams"), but it features somewhat obscure MarvelUK characters that had little to nothing to do with the X-Men, and the stories were mostly sci-fi and fantasy based when most X-titles focused on whatever mutant hysteria was going on at any given time.

* HeroicSacrifice: There have been many, over the years. Meggan's heroic sacrifice was especially sad, because it was in a tie-in book for the ComicBook/HouseOfM crossover where she saved the whole universe and nobody read it. [[spoiler: At least she's finally back now, after [[LikeABadassOutOfHell bringing some hope to Hell for good measure]].]]

* EvilCostumeSwitch: Subverted. Rachel Summers eventually ditches her original spiked red bodysuit (which was based on her [[MadeASlave Hound]] costume) and settles for the blood-red ensemble of [[TheDarkPhoenixSaga Dark Phoenix]]. But she's not pulling a FaceHeelTurn; she just prefers these colors over "Light" Phoenix's costume. "[Dark Phoenix] might have been a threat to the universe... but she had '''great''' taste in clothes!"

* EvilCounterpart:
** The Shadow X-Men, versions of the original team who were brainwashed by the Shadow King.
** Albion, for Captain Britain. He's an alternate version of Brian Braddock who comes from a CrapsackWorld, and was given the same choice as Brian, but chose the sword instead, which Merlin allowed for his own reasons.



* OffWithTheirHead: Sage, overtaken by her cover identity, beheads Dark Cyclops.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: A lot of plot-threads go unsolved.
