->Force, Factor, Men, it does get so confusing. Let me elucidate. X-Force does things with an overabundance of testosterone. X-Factor, a modicum of humor.
-->The Beast, laying out the state of things in TheNineties

The X-Men have various spinoff and sister team helmed by other mutants.

* The most prominent and steady one is the "Junior X-Men" team, which has gone through many name-changes (New Mutants, GenerationX, New X-Men, and the Young X-Men) but retains the mission of preparing teenage mutants for the hardships mutants must go through, and gives them the training they need to defend themselves and become X-Men in the future if they wish. These teams have to have a ''very'' high mortality rate, as the writers usually employ a shotgun strategy of introducing new characters - tossing out a ton of them at a time and killing off anyone who doesn't become popular. This leads to even more angst and survivor's guilt for the remaining members of the teenage teams. Only a few members graduate to the actual X-Men, with the rest killed off, depowered, or sent into comic book limbo. Because of this, these series have a very high reader turnover rate.

* X-Factor started out as an undercover team of the original five X-Men members pretending to hunt down mutants, while secretly protecting them and aiding them. In the '90s, X-Factor more or less became a team of X-Men working for the government; this ended up going badly. Eventually a couple of members of that team got back together with some other C-list mutants to become became X-Factor Investigations, led by Multiple Man - who are superhero detectives for hire.

* When the DarkAge hit, the New Mutants got [[DarkerAndEdgier grimdarked]] into X-Force, a paramilitary team with big guns, bigger shoulder pads, and questionable anatomy. Eventually X-Force went back to more character-focused stories before being given a DarkerAndEdgier ReTool ''again'' and then being killed off. That was when things got interesting. Another team who bought the X-force name to use as a superhero team based on reality television, back when that hadn't been run into the ground yet. They had to change to X-Statix when the real X-Force was forced to come out of the shadows and admit they weren't dead after all, so the name was ''not'' up for grabs like they'd thought in the first place. X-Statix was a [[MindScrew rather strange]] series where the team members [[KilledOffForReal died]], [[AnyoneCanDie a lot]]. Nowadays X-Force is back as the X-Men's black ops team, while the original New Mutants are back together under that name. And when ''that'' X-Force was disbanded, Wolverine and Angel decided to keep it as an unofficial mutant death-squad as the ''Uncanny'' X-Force. Confusing enough?

Other teams include:
** Exiles, a group of dimension-hopping mutants out to help the multiverse - sort of like ''{{Sliders}}'' meets ''X-Men''
** {{ComicBook/Excalibur}}: Britain's super-team. Not ''quite'' an X-Men team, but traditionally shares a few members.[[note]]Probably because the X-Men and Captain Britain were both ChrisClaremont projects.[[/note]]
** X-Treme X-Men: A short-lived splinter group that acted more internationally, [[WalkingTheEarth traveling the world, wandering the earth looking for adventure.]]
** ComicBook/{{Alpha Flight}}: Canada's national superteam. Extremely prone to infighting. The only team afiliated with the X-Men to constantly have a majority of non-mutant members, but more likely to have mutants than most non-X-Men teams. Tends to go through a lot of ConspiracyRedemption, since the Marvel version of Canada leans towards evil, racism, and fascism for some reason.
** The Starjammers, a team of heroic SpacePirates who pop up occasionally when one of the X-series is doing a space opera story. Their leader, Corsair is [[LukeIAmYourFather Cyclops's long-lost dad]].

[[folder:Students]]

'''Santo Vacarro / Rockslide'''

An Italian-American teenager with a body made up of living rocks that he can shoot from his body and re-form from any rock. Loves being a superhero and idolizes similar heroes like the Thing and loves wrestling. Started out as a bully, but evolved into a good-natured loudmouth who likes to jokingly insult his friends.

* AngstWhatAngst
* BashBrothers: With Anole. They've been practicing the FastballSpecial.
* BoisterousBruiser
* BookDumb
* {{Golem}}: Santo's power upgrade makes him somewhat similar to this.
* JumpedAtTheCall
* LikeBrotherAndSister (or brother and brother): Rockslide has jokingly hit on Anole. Anole has threatened to start dating women if he ever means it. There are slight hints of the standard gender set-up with him and Pixie.
* RocketPunch: Lost power.
* TrueCompanions: Loyalty plays a very important part of his life, particularly to Hellion, Dust, Pixie, and Anole.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Rockslide treats ''everyone'' this way.
* WhyAmITicking: His replacement power when RocketPunch wasn't cool enough.

'''Victor Borkowski / Anole'''

An American boy from a small town where mutants were accepted, he was sent to Xavier's when anti-mutant sentiment swept the nation. Has a mutation that gives him lizard and chameleon abilities - wall crawling, prehensile tongue, camouflage, agility, superstrength, and regeneration. Was originally supposed to be a minor gay character who killed himself, but the story was nixed to avoid controversy - anti-gay readers would have complained about the issue and pro-gay readers would have complained about another [[BuryYourGays gay character introduced just to die]]. Grew in popularity from a minor character to a supporting character to a main character. Frequently shown to be one of the only kids at Xavier's with a level head.

* BashBrothers: With Rockslide
* BerserkButton: His sexuality
* DeadpanSnarker
* EnsembleDarkhorse
* OnlySaneMan
* StraightGay, aside from being sensitive and liking theater.
* StraightMan: To Rockslide.
* PerformanceArtist
* PowerPerversionPotential

'''Sooraya Qadir / Dust'''

A shy, spiritual, and moral Muslim girl who has the power to turn into a living sandstorm. She was discovered when slave traders captured her and she used her powers to flay them alive to escape. Sooraya is very sensitive and reserved, and usually serves as the moral center for any team she's on.

* CaptainEthnic, she's a well-developed character, but her power still is turning into a living sandstorm
* MissingMom
* MoralityPet
* PillarsOfMoralCharacter
* PluckyGirl
* ShipperOnDeck: Ships Hellion/X-23. In X-23 #1 when Hellion and X-23 are talking she comments that "they're beautiful".
* ReedRichardsIsUseless: Subverted, in that she spends her spare time in the Middle-East fighting terrorism and religious extermists.
* TeamMom

'''Josh Foley / Elixir'''

See Characters/{{XForce}}

'''Megan Gwynn / Pixie'''

* BadassFamily: It was recently revealed that [[spoiler: her father is non other than Jason Wyngarde, aka Mastermind]] meaning that [[spoiler: Regan Wyngarde and Martinique Jason, Lady Mastermind and the second Mastermind respectively are her sisters]].
* BreakTheCutie
* BreakoutCharacter: Even after her team's title got cancelled, she kept making regular appearances elsewhere, until she got her own miniseries. Its only a matter of time before she gets her own ongoing. She's also notably the first ''Academy X: New X-Men'' character, besides X-23, to get anything more than a cameo outside of comics, due to being a very plot-relevant character in ''VideoGame/XMenDestiny''.
* CheerfulChild
* CovertPervert: Pixie's crush on Scott can sometimes be delightfuly not-Megan like.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: She went from group scene filler to getting her own miniseries. See BreakoutCharacter above.
* FunPersonified
* GenkiGirl
* ImHavingSoulPains: "My soul itches."
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Not everyone can have their soul ''torn apart'' and ''still'' remain happy and innocent afterwards.
* KidAppealCharacter
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: She sets out to be this for various people.
* PrecociousCrush: Pixie's got a pretty big crush on Cyclops, though he seems to view her more of as a daughter.
* ReplacementScrappy: When she developed teleporting powers, people started disliking her immensely out of fear that she'd replace fan-favorite Nightcrawler. Fortunately, she escaped this by ''Magik'' taking Kurt's place as the primary teleporter.
* TeleportersAndTransporters

'''Noriko Ashida / Surge'''

* ActionGirl
* BerserkButton: Surge's isn't exactly a docile little girl to begin with, but hurt her friends or her (ex)boyfriend, and you'll definitely be trouble...
* ComboPlatterPowers
* ElementalPowers (Electricity)
* {{Flanderization}}: Originally a cynical, snarky, surly character [[FreudianExcuse due to running away from home because her father "didn't believe in mutants", being homeless for a few years and having to use pills just to control her powers]]... however she was still [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold a genuinely nice person deep down]] who seemed to have a soft spot for kids. Under most subsequent writers, however, most of the "nicer" features have been jettisoned in favor of making her an unrelenting bitch who's needlessly mean and snarky towards everyone and filled with {{Wangst}}.
* MotorMouth: When she doesn't have her regulator gauntlets on, her speech devolves into babble
* TheRunaway
* TheChainsofCommanding: Before M-Day, all a squad leader had to focus on was winning the school cup and keeping their teammates in line. After M-Day, there's the Purifiers and the Marauders and Bastion to worry about...Moreover, Nori wasn't even a team leader before the * $#@ started to hit the fan, finding herself saddled with the responsibilities of command when everyone and their grandmothers are going after the mutant race. Needless to say, it puts a strain on her.
* SuperSpeed
* {{Wangst}}: Whether it's about her romantic life or trouble in the field, this is her favourite line of action. Once, Dani Moonstar dedicated '''one full issue''' to explain her that [[DarkestHour it's always darkest before dawn.]] Her answer? Basically: "I don't care about hope, and I don't want to look for it... I want to keep being ''emo'' and I will!"
** Of course, YMMV, seeing as she's gone through a huge TraumaCongoLine, especially for someone her age. In addition to the above, she was placed in charge of a team by Emma Frost to spite Hellion, watched as a busload of depowered students was blown up, and had to literally go through Hell. And she's still a teenager, so it's more like [[JustifiedTrope justified angst]].
* WhyAmITicking: In a recent arc of X-Force, Surge was injected with a modified strain of the Legacy Virus, causing her already difficult-to-control powers to go wild.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Somewhat of a subversion, Nori's natural hair colour is black, but after she got her powers, she simply couldn't resist throwing on the dye.
* TheWoobie

'''Kevin Ford / Wither'''

* AntiHero: Originally just Type I and II, until after Selene brainwashed him.
* BadPowersBadPeople: BadPowersGoodPeople didn't work out for him.
* BlessedWithSuck
* EmoTeen: Justified.
* FaceHeelTurn
* PowerIncontinence
* TouchOfDeath
* TheWoobie: Lost his best friends, his lover Wallflower, was considered "dangerous" even by his teammates, was brainwashed by Selene and killed by his former friend Elixir.

'''Julian Keller / Hellion'''

The son of rich parents who was sent to Xavier's so he'd use his psychokinetic powers more subtly, Julian was a spoiled brat with an air of superiority. He warmed up to Emma Frost because he reminded Emma of herself at that age. He chose his code name as a tribute to her dead students. He makes friends incredibly easy, because he's so charismatic. He had a relationship with Sofia aka Wind Dancer that ended badly when she lost her powers and left the school. Julian idolizes Magneto, but Magneto won't let him join him because he thinks Julian isn't ready. Has a rather...erm...interesting relationship with X-23.

* AntiHero: Type II. He's a conceited sort of jerk, but that's also it. Beyond that he's not a bad person.
* BrokenBase: [[DracoInLeatherPants Rebellious bad boy,]] or complete Jerkass? [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation It's up to you.]] But even after his CharacterDevelopment, there's still those who can't stand him.
* ButtMonkey: First, his friends were depowered on M-day and were blown up in a school bus right in front of him. During NXM he's been shot by the Purifiers, smacked around by Prodigy and Kimura, and shanked by Deathstrike. Then in Utopia he was sucker punched by Emma and then Daken proceeded beat him up. Then in X-Force, he was kidnapped by Leper Queen and was nearly blown up by the Legacy Virus and....then in his Hands get blown up by Nimrods. Then just when you think it's safe for Hellion, he then get's shanked from behind by Hellverine in X-23's ongoing...
* CharacterDevelopment: Mostly due to the hell going on around him, and his relationship with X-23.
* CrowningMomentofAwesome: When X-23 is gravely injured, he begs Emma Frost to unlock his full powers, which leads to him carrying Laura while flying at supersonic speeds back to the mansion, ramming an armored car through a guard Sentinel because it was in his way. He then busts into the traumatized Elixir's hospital room, and gives him the [[IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight pep talk]] [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan of the century]]. Elixir heals Laura, and all is well. Then Hellion passes out, and doesn't wake up for over thirty hours.
** It was the most awesome thing he has done, or will ever do in the future. Period.
*** You should see lay down all the pent up anger of loosing his hands when he demolishes Omega Sentinel
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Also with X-23. He and the New X-Men (plus David) are hanging out in the Danger Room and going on cosplaying X-Men missions. They have just met Laura, who Mercury invites to play after Jay leaves.
-->'''Julian''': Fine, you can play, but you can't be Wolverine every time.\\
''[Laura walks up to him.]''\\
-->'''Julian''': Down girl.\\
''[Laura unsheathes her claws, which stop right before his groin, before she walks past him.]''\\
'''Santo''': Ouch.\\
'''Julian''': ''[[StunnedSilence ...]] Didn't they CLONE you a SENSE OF HUMOR!?
* {{Expy}}: Hellion's personality is very similar to that of Pyro's from the X-Men movies.
* GoodIsNotNice: He's a total JerkAss. And he dreams of being an X-Man. He was even voted 'Most likely to become an X-Man' in the yearbook.
* HiddenHeartOfGold: It's in there... somewhere... maaaaaybe...
** Found it! Julian refuses to kill [[MagnificentBastard Magnificent Bitch Kimura]], even though Laura insists he's the only one who can. Julian insists that they "Have to be better than them" and instead launches Kimura many, many, many miles away.
*** When Julian and Laura are shaking down Laura's contacts in the underworld so that they can find Mercury, a brief but funny RunningGag is him repeatedly stopping Laura from killing whoever it is they're interrogating. He even uses his powers to fly down and save a man who X-23 had thrown out a window. Made even funnier considering how Julian is so used to being the jackass, but now has to be the moral one. Laura does eventually listen, even punching a guy in the face without using her claws.
* HighSchoolHustler
* ImportantHaircut: To show his coming into maturity after returning from the rescue mission with X-23.
* JerkAss: Originally. He got better, but then he went back again. Still not as bad as before, so he's now more of a...
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* KickTheDog: Telling a homeless, pill-addicted (to control her powers) Surge to get lost BECAUSE she was homeless back when he was way more of a JerkAss.
* KissKissSlap: With Sofia
* LonelyRichKid: Not really, but he plays this trope when he wants sympathy.
* NoGuyWantsAnAmazon: He had no problem [[AllGuysWantCheerleaders pursuing Sofia, who was not stronger than him]] but resisted his affections, but initially disliked [[BadAss X-23]], even giving her the oh-so-original nickname [[OppositeSexClone "clone"]].
** Averted in how he eventually falls for [[TykeBomb Laura]]-something that really freaks him out. He even vents to his rival about how weirded out he is by the fact he "Can't stop thinking about a girl who literally scares him."
* PsychicPowers
** MindOverMatter: A powerful telekinetic, possibly the last one on Earth after Decimation, with Marvel Girl in space. [[SarcasmMode No, it doesn't go to his head.]]
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: During his early days he often flaunted his money around to show how much better he was -- and he often got away with it. Being Emma's favorite student helped, too. But then his parents disowned him so now he has no money and therefore cannot screw the rules
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: When Laura and Julian break into the Facility to save Mercury, Kimura (X-23's former handler) thinks Julian is Laura's boyfriend. In fact a lot of her enemies make this assumption.
** Though it is subverted in how neither Laura nor Julian deny it, despite them not being a couple.
*** In X-23 #1 Rockslide calls X-23 his crazy girlfriend; which Hellion tells him not to call her that. Surge asks if he means "crazy" or "girlfriend". He doesn't reply. Though in issue #2 he call X-23 his best friend.
* ShipTease: And how! While he first finds X-23/Laura to be a total freak, she saves his life, and he in turn, keeps her from being eliminated (even though Frost told him to take her out first). It's not so much a ShipTease anymore as it is an actual near-canon pairing. Laura's presence brings a new perspective into his life, leading to a very notable deflating of his ego, while Laura becomes less robotic and begins to experience more complex emotion. But, that [[ShipSinking ship is sunk]] in issue 19 with X-23 clearly telling Hellion that she no longer has feelings for him.
* SpoiledBrat: And it shows.
* TookALevelInBadass

'''Cessily Kincaid / Mercury'''
* ShipperonDeck: Ships Hellion/X-23. After she learns that X-23 has developed feelings for Hellion after their battle with Nimrod, Cessily and Laura go to a coffee shop to talk about it and Cessily gives off the impression that the two would be good for one an another
* ChromeChampion
* ShapeshifterWeapon: Mercury forms blades, maces, and hammers among other things. At least once, she's also done a variant where she's acted as armor for another character.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: In the aftermath of M-Day, she was upset that she kept her powers, rather than lost them. She has also stated that she does not need to eat, but does so anyway to feel normal.

'''The Stepford Cuckoos'''

* AntiHero: Type III
* CloningBlues
* CreepyTwins
* FunWithAcronyms: Their initials were intended to spell "spice", as an EasterEgg. Unfortunately, this was never made explicit and one sister was left unnamed at the end of Comicbook/NewX-Men. The next writer named her "Mindee". Her actual name was later revealed to be "Irma", restoring the acronym.
* HiveMind
* PsychicLink
* PsychicPowers
* TykeBomb: Yeah, they're not exactly the most physically intimidating people around but they can still be considered super-soldiers/living weapons. They're actually one of the last elements of the Weapon Plus program, the same one that made Capain America and Wolverine.
* TwinTelepathy: Formerly they were quintuplets but now there are remaining three of them since two of them had died.
* YoungerThanTheyLook

'''Sofia Mantega / Wind Dancer'''

* BlowYouAway (her powers over wind)
* PutOnABus: After losing her powers, she left Xavier's. She didn't even get a big send-off like the kids on the actual buses, she's just gone. Many fans are still spiteful, as she was almost immediately replaced by X-23 as Hellion's love interest.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl (With Laurie aka Wallflower)

'''David Alleyne / Prodigy'''

* TheAce
* BlackAndNerdy
* TeenGenius
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Possessing the aptitude and intelligence of everyone nearby might ''sound'' impressive, but it's completely useless because the person who has that aptitude and intelligence in the first place is already ''right there''.
** Well, there were applications for it. However he lost that power. He did gain the collective knowledge of every X-Man and other character with extreme training he's ever met. So his power isn't as 'lame' anymore.

'''Joshua 'Jay' Guthrie / Icarus'''

* ComboPlatterPowers: Not only that he has flight and healing factor from his wings, he also has sound mimicry.
* OneSteveLimit: There are technically two Joshes in the New Mutants squad - Joshua Guthrie (Icarus) and Josh Foley (Elixir). However, earlier in Uncanny X-Men, Josh Guthrie decided to go by "Jay" because he feels that after his girlfriend died his old name should be left in his past too.
* TheScrappy
* WingedHumanoid
* {{Wangst}}: Icarus would constantly bring up the subject of his dead girlfriend in every appearance. Made even more wangsty, since they only dated for a week before she ended up killed.

'''Laurie Collins / Wallflower'''

* AbortedArc: It looked at first as though her [[ManipulativeBastard father who had the same powers]] was going to become a major player at the Academy, but her death sort of axed that possibility.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: In the ComicBook/HouseOfM universe.
* KilledOffForReal
* LoveHurts: She was caught in the middle of a LoveTriangle with [[UnequalPairing Josh and Rahne]].
* SacrificialLion
* ShrinkingViolet
* TheIngenue

'''Nezhno Abidemi / Gentle'''

* BlessedWithSuck: The longer he uses his mutant power, it is more likely to put a massive strain on him which leads to seizures. Because of this, he is painted with vibranium tattoos adorning his body help to keep his powers in check.
* GentleGiant / TheBigGuy: Subverted. He is actually a passive skinny boy who only uses his mutant powers which makes him become a towering muscular giant when necessary.
* MartialPacifist
* PillarsOfMoralCharacter
* PowerLimiter: His vibranium tattoos
* SuperStrength: Gentle has the ability to temporarily increase the muscle mass of his body to extreme levels. He can will himself to immediately grow and strengthen to the extent that he can lift at least 100 tons.

'''Ruth Aldine / Blindfold'''

* BlindSeer: Like the X-Men villain Destiny, she could use telepathy and to sometimes psychically sense events when other telepaths apparently did not.
** In Necrosha storyline, Blindfold's precognitive abilities are neutralized while in the presence of the resurrected Destiny, another precog which is explained that this is because two precogs in close presence to one another "are like two magnets pressed together positive pole to positive pole" and will negatively effect one another's powers.
* CainAndAbel: with her brother Luca
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Blindfold comes off like this thanks to her powers giving her a warped sense of time and casuality.
* EyelessFace: When she removes her blindfold
* TheOphelia
* VerbalTic: Blindfold is... hard to describe. Basically, as she's having a conversation with you, she sounds like she's giving yes-or-no answers to someone just offscreen.

'''Alani Ryan / Loa'''

* AlohaHawaii
* CaptainEthnic: She is from Hawaii with a talent for surfing and her codename is named after a type of tropical worm, which moves the same way she does when she uses her powers.
* IntangibleMan: She could disintegrate matter by phasing through it.
* KidSidekick: Became one for Namor, the {{Sub-Mariner}}, of all people.
* SuperNotDrowningSkills: Inherited an Atlantean amulet which allowed her to breath underwater. And support water pressure, apparently.

'''Ben Hamill / Match'''

* FlamingHair: Not just his hair, he also has a flaming head
* PlayingWithFire
* TheChewToy: He is constantly bullied by Rockslide who takes advantage of his fire powers by roasting his marshmallows over his flaming head.

'''Hope Abbott / Trance'''

* HardLight: Whenever Trance goes into some kind of altered state of consciousness, she releases her astral form while her physical body is left behind.

'''Nicholas Gleason / Wolf Cub'''

Was first found by Chamber and Wolverine when two cyborgs killed his parents and attempted to kill him because of his wolf-like mutation.

* HairTriggerTemper: he once nearly killed Havoc over a football dispute. Nick evetually gets better though.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: Murdered by Donald Pierce (disguised as Cyclops) during the Young X-Men finale.]]
* WolfMan


'''Roxanne 'Roxy' Washington / Bling!'''

* ButNotTooBlack: Though she is a black student, her skin complexion is either silver or purplish due to her mutation.
* ButchLesbian
* CaptainEthnic: Her codename and her rich background with famous rapper parents
* NighInvulnerability: Her body is made up of diamond material which can produce and throw razor-sharp shards.
* SoulBrotha

'''Sidney Green / Onyxx'''

* AntiHero: Debatable. Either a disfigured, socially awkward, and confused type I, who nonetheless generally seems to treat his friends very well; or a potential rapist type V, going by some outspoken female readers.
* CListFodder
* DishingOutDirt: Onyxx is just a big guy made of rocks.
* DumbMuscle
* {{Expy}}: He is almost an expy of Rockslide for having roughly the same powers (being giant rock men) and only a few strong physical differences (different colors, Onyxx has a helmet and is slightly bulkier, slightly different costumes).
* TheBigGuy

'''Jonas Graymalkin / Graymalkin'''

Professor Xavier's great, great, great, great etc. etc. grand-uncle from 200 years in the past. Was discovered kissing another boy by his father and buried alive on the property. This activated his mutation: superstrength, speed, durability, and no aging while in complete or semi-darkness. Was recently unearthed and joined the young X-Men. Suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and confusion over the world of the future. Anole has taken him under his wing.

* FishOutOfTemporalWater
* HumanPopsicle
* LastNameBasis
* NaiveNewcomer
* RipVanWinkle
* StraightGay

'''Eric Gitter / Ink'''

A punk from the ghetto who discovered that whenever he got a tatoo, he'd get a new power based symbolically on whatever the taoo depicts (wings make him fly, a hazard symbol on his hand makes him to make people violently ill with a touch). Discovered that the tatoo artist was the mutant rather than himself, making him one of ''very'' few X-Men to not be an actual mutant. Fell into a coma after using his powers to heal dying teammate Dust.

* TheScrappy / CreatorsPet: The writer explicitly intended Ink to be the breakout star of the series.
* GodModeSue: Had at least 7 powers at the same time, including a working simulation of the ''Phoenix Force''.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim

'''Alisa Tager / Cipher'''

* [[IntangibleMan Intangible Girl]]
* {{Invisibility}}: Cipher's abilities include full spectrum invisibility and complete stealth, able to mask even her psychic imprint from most telepaths.
* OneSteveLimit: There are two 'Cyphers' in the comics, one is a guy with multi-lingual powers from the New Mutants who died years ago and is recently resurrected in Necrosha and the other is a girl with invisibility and phasing. Thankfully their codenames are changed with different spelling to avoid confusion with the readers.
* RememberTheNewGuy: She is introduced in Young X-Men as not a new character but she is actually Secret Xavier Institute student known originally known only to Cyclops and Jean Grey. Eventually joined the training squad after assisting them behind the scenes for months.

'''Mark Sheppard / DJ'''
* [[spoiler: BusCrash: More like Bus Explosion. DJ was among the students depowered by the Decimation event, and was in the process of being PutOnABus when said bus exploded.]]
* KidAnova: Voted the class flirt. [[spoiler: Even when he's ''dying'' after being blown up with the other depowered kids, Mark still takes the time to flirt with the recently-arrived {{X-23}}]].
* ThePowerOfRock: Literally. Mark's power ([[spoiler: before he lost it following ''ComicBook/HouseOfM'']]) was powered by music, giving him different abilities depending on what he was listening to. Classical music allowed him to create energy shields, Gospel lets him fly, and he can manipulate light when listening to dance music. Good ol' rock and roll? ''Energy blasts.''
[[/folder]]

[[folder: X-Club]]

A team of [[ScienceHero Science Heroes.]] Formed in order to save mutantkind after M-Day, the X-Club is the devoted science division of the X-Men. They usually stay off the frontlines of the X-Men's battles to help from the sidelines. Most of their work has been concerned with the X-Gene, specifically, what makes it work, and how it originated. Unfortunately for the X-Club, most of their efforts have been fruitless, and they have already lost half their teammembers. However, they have proven popular enough to recieve two one-shots, and a mini-series.

'''Dr. Henry Philip "Hank" [=McCoy=]/Beast'''

See Characters/{{X-Men The Original Team}}.

'''James Bradley / Doctor Nemesis'''

* AgentScully: Strongly so. Though he is starting to waver.
* AntiHero: Type III
* AscendedExtra: Originally he was a comic book character in the 1940s as a Nazi hunter, recently he resurfaced in Uncanny X-Men grudgingly recruited by Beast into the science club hoping to undo the decimation.
* BadassLabcoat
** BadassInANiceSuit
* CoolMask: It's a surgical mask.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DoesNotLikeMagic
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* LargeHam: He can be very... enthusiastic when it comes to science.
-->'''Dr. Nemesis''': "We are '''scientists''', madam. We '''deduce'''!
* MagnificentBastard
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: He's a good guy, mostly sarcastic
* NaziHunter: One of his two favourite hobbies right next to saving lives. When he's first re-introduced he reveals that he spent ''sixty years'' hunting down one in particular.
* NiceHat: A classic 1940s fedora.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: He was born in 1906 and participated in the creation of the original Human Torch
* {{Tsundere}}: Even though he constantly pushes people away, he does like their friendship.

'''Madison Jeffries / Box'''

* AlmightyJanitor: Comparatively. Out of all the X-Club members he is the least scientifically minded and is often assigned the grunt-work of building and repairing. However, he's proven multiple times that he is more than capable of creating near-impossible machinery from scratch, as well as kick ass whenever he wants to.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's a really sweet guy. Just don't [[BerserkButton threaten someone he cares about.]]
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Luckily not anymore. However, just prior to joining the X-Club he spent two years brainwashed into building and operating a mutant death-camp. This did not do wonders for his mental health.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Comes off as strange because of his habits of talking to machines, as well as being somewhat introverted. Worsened in recent years to due to the death of his wife.
* ExtraOreDinary: Notably he can manipulate glass and plastic in addition to metal.
* GadgeteerGenius
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Inverted with the towering wife [[NighInvulnerability Diamond Lil]] and the average-height Madison Jeffries.
* NoSocialSkills: To a lesser agree, but still noticeable. An unfortunate side-effect of being brainwashed, locking himself away in the Yukon, and having a habit of talking to his machines more often than people.
* [[OneManArmy One-Robot Army]]: Plenty capable of this though it was more common in his ComicBook/AlphaFlight days.
* RetiredBadass: Was this before recruited to join the X-Club. Still arguably semi-retired considering what he used to do in ComicBook/AlphaFlight.
* {{Robosexual}}
* ShellShockedVeteran: Shows shades of this on occasion.
* {{Technopath}}: One of his main abilities is the ability to communicate with machines.
* TransformingMecha: When merged with the Boxbot. Notably, due to his powers he is able to manipulate the robot to take any form he can imagine to the point that it borders on ShapeShifting.

'''Dr. Kavita Rao'''

* TheAtoner: The fact that she researched, and developed, a mutant cure is what caused her to join the X-Club.
* BadassNormal: The only non-mutant member on Utopia and she more than holds her own.
* BollywoodNerd: She is an Indian scientist who was working on a mutant 'cure' in [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Astonishing X-Men]]. Later on, she became an ally when she was recruited into the science club created by Beast hoping to undo the Decimation.
* DeadpanSnarker: Enough to compete with Doctor Nemesis.
* {{Meganekko}}
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Upon discovering what S.W.O.R.D. had in mind for her cure.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Though the "extremist" part was not entirely her doing, she is often blamed for it and still suffers from related guilt-issues.

'''Danger'''

* AIIsACrapshoot: Is ''the'' Danger Room become sentient and now her own person.
* BerserkButton: Do ''not'' attempt to imprison her or pose a threat to her freedom. She will ''end you.''
* DidYouThinkICantFeel: Her reaction to being imprisoned as the Danger Room for decades.
* HeelFaceTurn: Despite originally trying to kill them, she now aids the X-Men and fights alongside them.
* ShapeShifting: This rather than TransformingMecha due to having a much more fluid form as well as holographic disguise capabilities.
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: She took poorly to being held captive as the original Danger Room.

'''Dr. Yuriko Takiguchi'''

Regular human electronics expert. Later died of old age and was buried on Utopia. Honestly not very remarkable.

'''Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch'''

Magneto's long-lost daughter, believed to be dead and raised by gypsies with her brother, Quicksilver. When she grew into a young woman, a mob almost killed her after they learned of her ability to manipulate reality. Although good natured, she was indebted to Magneto when he saved her from the mob, and took her brother in to form the first Brotherhood of Mutants. After learning the truth about their parentage, Wanda and Pietro have pinballed back and forth between heroes and villains, though they usually retain good intentions in either form. Wanda herself became more and more insane as her powers quickly grew from causing minor bad luck to full-scale reality warping.

* AGodAmI
* AntiHero: The Witch briefly entered type V territory. Then again she was a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} without true control of her actions at the time, so it could arguably simply be type I at heart.
* DoingInTheScientist / DoingInTheWizard: Writers continually flip flop between explaining her powers as being purely science-fiction based psychic mutation, magic, and magic created by mutation.
* GreenLanternRing: Sort of. While she doesn't exactly have NewPowersAsThePlotDemands, her powers basically do whatever the Hell the writer wants them to and don't seem to have any rules to them at all.
* LukeIAmYourFather
* RealityWarper
* TrulySingleParent: Although the android Vision is credited as the father, Wanda really made Wiccan and Speed using nothing but her own abilities to create them... although somewhat ironically, she was not in fact single when it happened.
* WindsOfDestinyChange
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: The breakdown that wiped out 90% of the mutant population? Turns out it never would have happened if she hadn't been dumped on so hard by life as an Avenger.

'''Ariel'''

* DisneyDeath
* TheHedonist
* HumanAliens
* MulticoloredHair: Her hair is in a mixture of pink, white and blonde
* TeleportersAndTransporters

'''Shard'''

* BadFuture
* ButNotTooBlack: She is an Aborigine mutant with blonde hair
* DarkSkinnedBlond
