[[folder: Jubilation Lee[=/=]Jubilee]]

!!'''Jubilation Lee/Jubilee'''

Actually introduced in 1989, Jubilee was intended to do for the new fans of the 1990s what Shadowcat did in the 1980s -- serve as a viewpoint character for teenagers. As such, she became Wolverine's scrappy kid sidekick, and spent several years following him around, swinging between sarcastic mockery of his NinetiesAntihero excesses and mortal terror expressed through TotallyRadical dialogue. Then she got transferred to the junior team, Generation X, where she spent some time as the annoying one who won't shut up and then some more time as the GeniusDitz team strategist.

When Generation X got cancelled, it all went a bit south for Jubilee; after her own series failed to attract a significant readership and was swiftly retooled into a limited series, she was sidelined, then depowered. She returned for a spell in the (non X-Men) NewWarriors reboot with PoweredArmor, an [[MostCommonSuperpower enormous rack]], and her first proper CodeName (Wondra).

After NewWarriors got cancelled, Jubilee drifted back towards the X-books and now appears to have been turned into a vampire. Given her previous characterization as sunshine and sparkles, fandom in general seems to have come to the conclusion that Vampire Jubilee is potential comedy gold.

Currently one the members of an all female X-Men team in the ComicBook/AdjectivelessXMen.

* AbsurdlyYouthfulParent: Finds and adopts a baby in Europe despite (permanently, due to being a vampire) being 17.
* ACupAngst: Actually drawn to look like a gymnast on a team full of bikini models and she's not happy about it, though she has become progressively curvier.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Jubilee wanted Synch in GenerationX, he wanted Monet (and thinks of Jubilee as a friend).
* AmbiguouslyBi: With X-23. Especially thanks to scenes [[http://i.imgur.com/i1bgT.jpg like]] [[http://i.imgur.com/cppcV.jpg this]].
* {{Bifauxnen}}: In her very early appearances, she had short hair and a flat chest that she could be mistaken as an effeminate boy depending on the art.
** On at least two occasions she was required to go undercover as a delivery '''boy'''. Since the other two women on the team were undercover as hot women in slinky dresses, she found this rather annoying.
** In a side-story in Wolverine, she's fully mistaken for a boy by a tribe in the Savage Land and engaged to one of their princesses.
* [[BettyAndVeronica Betty]]: For Synch's Affections.
* BookDumb
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Comes with the Vampire thing.
* BrattyHalfPint
* CaptainEthnic: Only this because of her powers.
* ClassicalAntihero
* CoolBigSis: To X-23, particularly. Although many of the new mutants look up to her. Except for [[{{Jerkass}} Surge]]
* CursedWithAwesome: She no longer has any mutant powers, but she's now a vampire which includes the typical powers of super strength, super speed, {{healing factor}}, the ability to turn into vapor, and is eternally 17. Of course she now has a thirst for human blood and may potentially lose control one day and kill everyone around her. Plus all those silly vampire weaknesses.
* CuteMonsterGirl: Since being turned into a vampire. Her appearances in X-23's solo title under artist Sana Takeda have placed extra emphasis on the "cute".
* EmbarrassingFirstName: She prefers to be called Jubilee.
* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire: She suffers from bloodlust but has learned to cope with it.
* GeniusDitz: A lazy academic underachiever who serves as the team [[TheStrategist strategist]].
** "They probably know we're coming, right? So we gotta do what they think we ''won't'' do. They know we know where they are. We know they know we know that. So since they know we know what they probably know, we know what to do."
* GenreSavvy
* GloryDays: Did you know she was an X-Man? She'll never let you forget it.
* HealingFactor: A part of her Vampire powers.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Wolverine, being one of his many foster daughters.
* KidAppealCharacter: In the '90s cartoon (and the '90s comics, for that matter), she was basically Wolverine's latest sidekick.
* KidSidekick: She started out as a sidekick of Wolverine, before joining GenerationX.
* LIsForDyslexia: But with math
* TheLancer: To Night Thrasher, after she joined the NewWarriors.
* LethalHarmlessPowers: She could have done so much more with her power, but she was afraid of killing someone.
** The one time she did cut loose with her powers (because she thought Wolverine was dead) she blew up half of The Mandarin's castle!
--->"Did I just do that? And, like, do I want to do it again?"
** She blows up Proudstar Hall in order to defeat Emplate.
*** Her powers tend to be more destructive when she's emotional and unable to focus and control her abilities as well as usual. She's used this to her advantage before. In Genration X, Emma Frost states that Jubes has the potential to detonate matter at a sub-atomic level.
* LittleMissSnarker[=/=]DeadpanSnarker
* MadeOfIron
* TheMunchausen: "When I was with the X-Men..."
* MustMakeHerLaugh: A gender-flipped version. She made it her mission to get Bishop to lighten up.
* NaiveNewcomer
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Jubilee has the standard vampire package of fangs, nigh-uncontrollable bloodlust, eternal youth, superhuman strength, durability, and agility, the ability to transform into mist, and a strong aversion to sunlight.
* OutdatedOutfit: Jubilee is the most extreme example of this. Although it's semi-possible as an outfit that a young girl would think is "cool" in the 1980s, the bright yellow trench coat and wrap around sunglasses became just plain painful as the 90s continued.
** Particulary in the 90s cartoon series.
* OutOfFocus[=/=]DemotedToExtra: Like many characters born in the '90s, from time to time since the early-2000s.
* PluckyGirl: Life hasn't been kind to poor Jubilee yet she's arguably one of the most upbeat and optimistic X-Men in spite of it.
* PoweredArmor: She seems to have picked up a suit since losing her powers.
* ThePrankster
* PromotionToParent: By virtue of finding an orphaned infant in Europe that she's now taking care of and names Shogo. She didn't even object to Sublime calling him her son and further issues show that she is, 100%, his mother.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: If she loses control of her bloodlust her eyes glow red.
* RollerbladeGood
* SarcasticDevotee: Towards Wolverine, for a while in the '90s.
* ShoutOut: She originally wore the yellow trenchcoat with a red shirt and green shorts. Anyone who didn't think "Robin" never read classic Franchise/{{Batman}}.
** This was taken to the logical conclusion in the Amalgam Universe: she becomes Sparrow, side kick to Dark Claw (Batman and Wolverine merged).
* SuperCuteSuperPowers: Jubilee, whose powers have been described as "sparkles" or "fireworks".
* TotallyRadical: She even says "totally like radical" in ''Uncanny X-Men'' #247.
** It's so much worse in Generation X, where pretty much all the teens on the team were guilty of speaking this way.
* WalkingTechbane: Happens in the '90s X-Men cartoon.
* YouFightLikeACow: Can give ''Spidey'' a run for his money.

[[folder: Lucas Bishop[=/=]Bishop]]

!!'''Lucas Bishop/Bishop'''

A time-traveling cop from the future. There's... actually not much more to say about Bishop than that. He's big, he's stoic, he's black (and at least part native Australian), and he operates on a slightly different ethical code to most of the X-Men.

Post-Decimation he underwent a rather messy FaceHeelTurn, losing an arm along the way, and now divides his time between time travel, scheming, and attempting to shoot Cable with very large guns. And global scale genocide.

* AntiHero: Started out more as UnscrupulousHero, and softened to PragmaticHero over the years, before his FaceHeelTurn.
** After his FaceHeelTurn, he more or less [[spoiler: dropped any pretense of heroism and became a really, really nasty piece of work.]]
** Now he's back to being an AntiHero.
* AntiClimax: For years he was convinced Gambit would betray and destroy the X-Men. As it turns out, the culprit in Bishop's future was Onslaught. The two patched things up with a simple apology from Bishop.
* ArtificialLimbs: Gained a mechanical arm after losing his left arm to the mutant-eating monster Predator X.
* AwesomeAussie: He was born in Australia, and is very badass (when he's not trying to [[FaceHeelTurn kill innocent children]]), although he has spent much more of his life in America rather than Australian.
* BadFuture
* {{BFG}}: Bishop's powers aren't obvious at first glance, so like Cable, readers might think that his gigantic weapons are his power.
* ButNotTooBlack: Bishop has a long, straight hair that doesn't seem right for an African American. However, it was revealed that Bishop isn't of African descent but Australian Aboriginal, most of whom do have straight hair (if different facial structure).
** To be precise, it was revealed that Gateway is his grandfather; in all likelihood Bishop is only part Australian Aborigine.
* CowboyCop: As he comes from the dystopian future, he started off as a brash mutant cop who had difficulty with adjusting the X-Men before finally settling down until his FaceHeelTurn.
* DemonicPossession: Recently returned to the present, possessed by the [[NewMutants Demon Bear]].
* EnergyAbsorption: His power allows him to absorb several kinds of energy, including psychic energy, as well as redirecting it in the form of laser blasts.
* FacialMarkings: As he comes from the BadFuture, he has an 'M' (for Mutant) branded on his left face.
* FaceHeelTurn: For a time.
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: Being from a BadFuture, he had serious problems with the whole "don't kill people" thing for a time.
* FutureBadass
* {{Irony}}: Part of the reason he stayed in the [[ComicBookTime 'present'']] was to prevent a member of the X-Men betraying them, only to later turn traitor himself.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Has forgotten his attempts to kill Hope Summers and Cable, courtesy of Storm. Unfortunately, AmnesiaMissedASpot.
* NinetiesAntiHero: To a lesser degree than Cable. To contrast, Bishop was a hardcore police officer, whereas Cable was a professional warzone survivor, but he never quite went into outright SociopathicHero territory.
* NoNameGiven: Over the years, Bishop doesn't have a real name until in one X-Treme X-Men issue, his first name was revealed to be Lucas.
* PhlebotinumOverload: Bishop can be overloaded given enough time and fuel... this usually results in a fairly splashy explosion, though he himself is rarely injured from it... well, except maybe his uniform.
* PutOnABus: [[spoiler:When Cable and Hope had enough of him chasing them through different timelines, Cable managed to scramble Bishop's time-travelling teleportation device which stranded him in a very deserted distant future.]]
* ReformedButRejected: Since he's returned from the future.
* ScaryBlackMan: After he turned into a baby-hunting villain in the 2000s ''Cable'' series. His artificial left arm doesn't seem to help either.

[[folder: Joseph]]

!!'''Joseph'''

A younger clone of Magneto, whom everyone thought WAS Magneto (this had happened before). Turns out he was just a pawn in a bigger plan, and was subsequently killed, but not before trying to get into Rogue's pants (also had happened before).

* [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead]]
* BettyAndVeronica: During that time when Joseph was introduced, there was a BettyAndVeronica love triangle with Rogue as the center figure, Joseph as the Betty, and Gambit as the Veronica.
* CloningBlues
* EvilTwin: Joseph was a much younger 'copy' of Magneto. Since at the time Magneto was villainous and Joseph was an X-Man, he counts as a Good Twin.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: [[spoiler: Started off as a straight clone of Magneto. He lost his memory after getting hit on the head during a fight with the real deal, and became good. After his death, Astra restored him, and implanted a copy of Magneto's old memories into his mind, making him evil again.]]
* HeroicSacrifice

[[folder: Sarah[=/=]Marrow]]

!!'''Sarah/Marrow'''

A former mutant terrorist. Originally created by a writer with the intention to die in a one on one fight with Storm, it was after some executive meddling and other factors that she was revealed to be still alive. Later she was picked up again as one of three new and unusual recruits to join the X-Men after a crossover (the others were Cecilia Reyes and Maggot).

At first a troublemaker for the other X-Men, she managed to become a stable and accepted part of the team. However, after some failed attempts by writers and artist to make her more appealing, she mysteriously disappeared from one issue to another, without any explanation ever given.

Afterwards she reappeared in a one-shot as SHIELD sleeper agent, was part of the ill-fated Weapon X series and finally got depowered on M-Day while keeping her mutated appearance. After a brief appearance as enemy in X-factor she was once again absent for several years. She has now returned in the 2014 ''X-Force'' series as a core cast member.

* AntiHero: NominalHero originally. She had mutant supremacist leanings and was the loose cannon on a team with ''Wolverine'', but eventually healed and reformed during AlanDavis' run, at the end of which, she probably didn't qualify for more than ClassicalAntiHero. After that she turned to downright villain and finally back to her original form.
** Davis' attempt was seen as CharacterDevelopment by many readers.
* BareYourMidriff: Her default costume, which she often wears all the time.
** Her X-force uniform also keeps this trend.
* BloodKnight: Before Davis' got a hold on her. Back again after she disappeared. In X-force she openly states she is just there to have "fun".
* BodyHorror: Her power, by the by, was to grow bones out of her body, usually in the form of outward jutting spines or claws.
* BrokenBird
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Mixed with being PutOnABus. She disappeared two issues without explanation and has only reappeared in satellite titles, she was never shown or mentioned again in the core titles.
* DarkAgeOfSupernames: Subverted, for someone who comes from the 90's, has the power to grow knives out of the body and was more anti than hero, she has a surprising soft and normal codename.
** This was almost played straight, as her codename was originally "Sheath," but this was rejected by the editors for sounding too sexual.
* DarkAndTroubledPast
* DemotedToExtra: She was in ''Marvel vs. Capcom 2'', then she fell off the radar in a big way. In universe, S.H.I.E.L.D. once rewrote her mind to let her think she was a normal teenager. She turned out to be smart enough to attend university, then her mind started resisting the process.
* DualWielding: Default combat style.
* ExecutiveMeddling: The reason she is still alive and why someone like her joined the X-Men in the first place.
* FreudianExcuse: Well, if you'd been born with bones sticking out all over your body and had the only people who ever cared for you massacred before your eyes as a child, how well-adjusted would ''you'' be?
* HealingFactor: The other reason why she survived the heart removal, and how she can remove the bones from her body without bleeding to death. Strangely not official part of her powerset.
* KnifeNut: Marrow almost always uses bone knives which grow from her own body as weapons. She is drawn with them on nearly each cover she appears on.
* LighterAndSofter: Her [[ThrowTheDogABone development]] under Davis.
* LovecraftianSuperpower: Her BodyHorror powers also give her some serious advantages like superhuman endurance, pain resistance, healing and strength.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler:Her reaction to finding out she volunteered for dangerous experiments to regain her super powers while being pregnant and having been told the risk.]]
* NinetiesAntiHero
* NoSocialSkills: Marrow is extremely confrontational and has difficulty connecting to people emotionally -- or even understanding herself. Of course, living in the sewers for most of your early childhood with a bunch of other maladjusted freaks and spending your teenage years fighting for your survival in a horrible pocket dimension does that to you.
* SlasherSmile: Can pull that off towards civilians and mooks, doesn't work on actual heroes or villains though.
* SpikeShooter
* PlotRelevantAgeUp: Her first appearance was as a bald little girl before this happened to her.
* ProgressivelyPrettier: Prime example of the trope. Part of it was deliberate in-universe: as she learned to control her powers better, there was less of the whole "bones jutting out of her at random" thing. With effort, she can maintain CuteMonsterGirl status (the pink hair and the horns aren't going anywhere.) Of course, DependingOnTheArtist kicks in, and you can even have her looking like her BodyHorror day-one self in one comic and her "cute girl with horns" look in another though both stories take place and are released around the same time.
* RememberTheNewGuy: An early RetCon established her as a survivor of the Morlock Massacre storyline.
* SmarterThanYouLook: She was able to memorize the entire subway and sewer tunnel system under New York as a 5 or 6 year old child. Likewise, having the time table of all subway trains in her mind. Also her short stint as sleeper agent showed that she is capable of learning and understanding scientific theories. It seems only her violent upbringing and resulting personality stops her from showing/using her intelligence openly.
* UnskilledButStrong: Her combat style is simply to overpower the enemy with strength and/or speed, as she learned during her childhood. However, missing any kind of formal training she is all but useless against people who can balance this out with skill as Storm quickly demonstrated.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Some colorists make it brown, red or orange, but her default hair color is actually pink.
* WolverineClaws: With enough control over her powers, she can produce these in bone form.

[[folder: Cecilia Reyes]]

!!'''Cecilia Reyes'''

A hard-working New York doctor who definitely did not want to be a superhero, at all, ever. Unfortunately for her, [[TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive the bad guys didn't care]]. She quit as soon as possible, but not before having a neat love triangle with Beast and Iceman.

* BarrierWarrior
* DeadpanSnarker
* HospitalHottie
* IJustWantToBeNormal: She prefers to work as a normal doctor than to work in a superhero team.
* SassyBlackWoman: Though ironically she is a Puerto Rican.
* SecretPublicIdentity: Due to the whole 'not wanting to be a superhero at all ever' thing, she refuses to take one.
* TheMedic: She still serves this role for the X-Men on occasion, including patching up Magneto after [[spoiler: he brought Kitty Pryde back from space]].
* TwoferTokenMinority

[[folder: Japheth[=/=]Maggott]]

!!'''Japheth/Maggott'''

A South African teenager from a poor family. As a child, his family thought he was dying from stomach cancer because his abdomen constantly bulged and he was constantly hungry. Actually, he was going through a mutation in which his stomach turned into a pair of semi-autonomous slugs. To feed, Japheth had to have the slugs burst out of his stomach, feed on any substance, then return, giving him a burst of superstrength. Japheth joined the X-Men for only a short time before vanishing and reappearing years later to be killed in a Canadian concentration camp for mutants.

* BrotherChuck
* CListFodder / WeHardlyKnewYe
* ExtremeOmnivore
* JiveTurkey: It's ''South African'' slang, but it's often completely impenetrable.
* LovecraftianSuperpower: These seemed to be going around in the late 90s X-Books.
* OlderAlterEgo: Originally Maggott is just a skinny teenager with normal skin complexion, but when he powers up by his digestive matter-eating slugs, his skin turns blue and becomes musclebound to fight.
* ShooOutTheNewGuy: to a point that you'd think the TropeNamer is a ShoutOut to ''him''!
* TotallyRadical

[[folder: Nathaniel "Nate" Grey[=/=]X-Man]]

!!'''Nate Grey/X-Man'''

Uh... the cloned offspring of Cyclops and Jean Grey from an alternate reality where everyone was evil and he was raised by Mr Sinister to kill Apocalypse and came to our world by accident. You with me so far? Okay, so ''then'' it got really complicated...

* AntiHero: KnightInSourArmor in his original appearances, but apparently grew out of it.
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence
** Now he is [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead in the Dark X-Men mini-series]].
* {{Badass}}: Took on the entire Dark Avengers roster, played them all like a harp, beat the crap out of most of them - while he didn't beat Ares, he stopped his axe with his bare hands and was occupied at the time.
** An immature version - power wise - crushed Holocaust like a bug, beat seven shades of crap out of Apocalypse (and in one alternate reality, used the Molecule Man to liquefy him), took heavy punches from Colossus and Captain Britain and tagged Nightcrawler mid teleport. Then schooled the Abomination without even trying. All of this by the time he was physically seventeen.
** Thereafter racked up numerous feats against Thanos, the Hulk, Hybrid, another version of Apocalypse, Cable, Exodus, evil!Jean Grey, psychic vampire!Madelyn Pryor and Stryfe.
* [[spoiler: BadassNormal]]: After his [[spoiler: depower]].
* BadassInDistress: [[spoiler: He became a prisoner of Norman Osborn at the end of Dark X-Men mini-series. Then, he was transferred to Sugar Man who used him as a living battery in order to open up the portals to go back to Age of Apocalypse universe. Fortunately, the New Mutants defeated Sugar Man and saved Nate before he could die.]]
* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler:As said in the above, after months of imprisonment and torture, Nate Grey was reduced to using low-level telekinesis as his only remaining power.]]
** Happened a lot in his original series, with him losing one power or another, pretty much at random.
* DividedWeFall: The first encounter with Professor Xavier (who had been long dead in his universe) going bad led Nate to keep his distance from the X-Men for a long time.
** An experience like being absorbed by Onslaught would sour anyone.
* FishOutOfWater: After Nate Grey had landed in the mainstream Marvel Universe while fighting in the battle in Age of Apocalypse universe, the results of him adjusting to the new world are rather overwhelming.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: Like Cable, typically his left eye glows when he's using his powers.
* GooGooGodlike
* IJustWantToBeNormal: as shown by the 'Greyville' fantasy world Mysterio stuck him in.
* IncestIsRelative: Once he got into the main reality, he unconsciously used his powers to sort-of-resurrect his genetic mother's evil clone in an attempt to reach out to said genetic mother. The exact nature of their relationship was uncertain but... worrying.
** He didn't know there genetic relationship. Madelyn on the other hand...
* KidFromTheFuture: Or rather, from an alternate dimension.
* LetsYouAndHimFight: Nate's acquaintance with characters from the main Marvel Universe usually started from trading blows.
* ManipulativeBastard: Less of the Bastard, but like his dad, he's capable of the Manipulative part.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: His first encounter with Cable was...problematic.
* OddFriendship: With SpiderMan.
* OhCrap: Induces this in many people, most notably Dark Beast.
* ParentalIncest: Although combined with FridgeLogic. Nate had a relationship with Madelyne Pryor who is a clone of Jean Grey, an alternate version of the woman whose DNA he was created from, making her essentially his genetic mother. And it got worse when she was killed and impersonated by Jean Grey from yet another alternate universe.
** He did not know she was genetically his mother. Not for a while. Then the relationship was no longer sexual. Whether she knew is another matter.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Nate was considered to be the most powerful mutant in the world with Phoenix-level power. Justified that he was originally created as a weapon by Age of Apocalypse's Mister Sinister to kill Apocalypse.
** He is 'the ultimate telekinetic' and 'the most powerful mutant in any reality'. This is including Franklin Richards, James Jaspers, Proteus, Magneto, Mr M, Jean Grey and Xorn - though the statement was written before Mr M and Xorn were created, it appears that at full potential, he lives up to the hype.
** Norman Osborn stated that he could go 'one on one with the Sentry'. And this was during Dark Reign when the Sentry was even more powerful than usual and pulling new powers out of his ass about three times a week.
* PowerDegeneration: Nate's power put a huge strain on his body and would kill him before he turned 21.
** Though he got better when his genetics stabilised through a genetic brand.
** WordOfGod says the original plan was to have his TK develop so much that he could mentally fix the flaw in his DNA.
* PsychicNosebleed
* PsychicPowers: has had every psychic power there is.
* SkunkStripe
* TykeBomb
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Despite being for all intents and purposes in his late teens Nate actually is only a few years old due an accelerated aging process by AoA!Mr. Sinister.
