     The Original Team 
Blink - Clarice Fergusson

Leader of the Exiles, hailing from the original Age of Apocalypse. She is an acrobatic teleporter, capable of going as far as the Moon if she pushes herself.

see the Blink page

Mimic - Calvin Rankin

Originally a bitter teenager from a financially destitute family, Calvin Rankin was arrested on his first mission with the Brotherhood of Mutants, where he was approached by Professor X with the offer of joining the X-Men is lieu of prison-time. Eventually he began to lead the team, in a world where Mutants and superheroes in general are treated like royalty. He is nearly his own reality's Captain America, possessing the powers of five different mutants.

Morph - Kevin Sidney

Shapeshifter and comic relief for the Exiles

  • Alternate Universe Reed Richards Is Awesome: His equivalent in the 'main' universe died decades ago and hasn't returned. This guy has served in the New Mutants, the Avengers and the X-Men, and is one of the few members of the team to stay alive for the whole series.
  • Demonic Possession: At the hands of Proteus, though he survives because of his unique body-structure.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: Was very much interested in Mariko, who did not (and could not) reciprocate.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners with Mariko despite her not being heterosexual
  • Hidden Depths: Sure, he's a clown, but he's a smart clown. He has a degree in computer sciences, for one thing.
  • I Choose to Stay: Was offered the chance to go home, but he turned it down.
  • Known Only by Their Nickname: is only ever referred to as Morph
  • Plucky Comic Relief
  • Sad Clown: His mother died when he was thirteen. The constant jokes came after, as an attempt to lighten his father's mood.
  • Shapeshifter: Into pretty much anything. Man, woman, animal, vegetable or mineral.
  • Technically Naked Shapeshifter: Really likes talking about how he's technically naked all the time, since his clothes are made out of himself.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Morph and his dad didn't get on very well due to all those jokes. However, once Morph joined the Avengers, his father's attitude lightened up.

Nocturne - T.J. Wagner

The daughter of Nightcrawler and Scarlet Witch, she is able to fire hex bolts and also "possess" people for short periods of time. In her reality, Wolverine has lead the X-Men since the death of Professor X, and Cyclops is a supervillain.

Magnus Lensherr

The son of Magneto and Rogue, he was cursed with a combination of his parents powers. He had his fathers magnetic abilities, but turned whoever he touched into metal. He died at the end of the teams first mission while containing the blast from an atomic bomb.

  • Barrier Warrior: uses electromagnetic barriers in fights
    • He used this to contain the atomic bomb that killed him
  • Clingy Costume: Not by choice, though. It's what keeps him from killing everything he touches.
  • Sacrificial Lamb: The first member of the team to die.
  • Skunk Stripe: Has one much like his mother
  • Touch of Death: Anyone who touches his skin turns to metal

Thunderbird - John Proudstar

An alternate reality version of the John Proudstar who was kidnapped by Apocalypse during his time with the X-Men and unwillingly transformed into one of his Four Horsemen, War.

  • Abusive Parents: Papa Proudstar wasn't happy about the fact that his son could wrestle buffalo to the ground.
  • The Berserker: Apocalypse made him War for a reason. It takes a lot for him to reach his Rage Breaking Point though.
  • Cyborg: What Apocalypse turned him into, though he's still got some fleshy parts. He's got a lot of issues about it.
  • Gentle Giant: Would love to be this, but he's still got anger issues.
  • Official Couple: With Nocturne, though it takes time for them to get there.
  • Put on a Bus: He was put into a coma when one mission required them to stop Galactus. The team were abruptly sent away before he recovered.
  • Reforged into a Minion: Courtesy of Apocalypse.
  • Super Strength: Started off at this, and after Apocalypse was done with him, he could match blows with the Hulk.
  • The Bus Came Back: He eventually came out of his coma toward the end of the first volume... then he and Talia went right back on the bus.

     Additional Team Members 

Members were added to the team in the event that an existing member was fatally injured during the missions.

Sunfire - Mariko Yashida

Hailing from an alternate universe in which she became Sunfire instead of Shiro Yoshida. She was a member of her reality's X-Men. She died fighting a brood controlled Mimic.

  • Abusive Parents: Her parents were incredibly insistent she get married and have kids, and aren't exactly happy about her being a Mutant either. She eventually ran away from home because of their controlling attitude, but she still has nightmares about them coming after her.
  • Jumped at the Call: If her dreams are any indication, she leapt at the chance to become an X-Man and get as far away as possible from her parents.
  • Lipstick Lesbian
  • Mutant
  • Playing with Fire: her superpower

Sasquatch - Dr. Heather Macdaniel

Field leader, chief medical officer, and monstrous brute of the Canadian super team, Alpha Flight. Her power comes from Tanaraq, one of the Great Beasts, rather than from gamma radiation as she thought.

  • De-Power: Once Tanaraq is removed from her. She's not exactly sad to see her powers go.
  • Genius Bruiser: The smartest member of the team, but she's usually only used for her muscle. She grumbles about it at one point.
    "I know I'm the powerhouse, but let's divide up the chores, okay?"
  • Happily Married: To her reality's version of Wolverine, for a time. Then afterward to James Hudson.
  • Magic Pants: Very pointedly averted in her case. Every time she transforms, it leaves her without a shred of clothing (except, you know, bras).
  • Mission Control: After the Exiles find the Panoptichron.
  • Race Lift: Unlike her mainstream equivalent, she's black.
  • Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: Quit when she thought her friends died and returned to her own reality.
    • The Bus Came Back: Returns to her Mission Control job to oversee the new Exile squads when Morph contacts her for help.
  • Shoot the Dog: Had to kill her first husband, Wolverine, when he went mad.

Magik - Illyana Rasputin

An aggressive Russian sorceress with a short temper, who replaced Blink as the team teleporter.

Beak - Barnell Bohusk

Replaced Nocturne when she was left in the 616 universe

See X-Men: 2000s Members

  • Gondor Calls for Aid: While Hyperion rampaged through the Crystal Palace, Beak called on two alternate good Hyperions to take him down.


The queen of Atlantis, who conquered most of her world. Incredibly haughty and bad-tempered.

Sabretooth - Victor Creed

Third leader of the Exiles, and an adoptive parent for Blink. Comes from Age of Apocalypse, where he was an X-Man.

See Weapon X (below)


The son of Apocalypse, and another survivor from the Age of Apocalypse, having fled into the 'main' Marvel universe, placed onto the team by King Hyperion, in the hope that he'd kill them.


A rebel warrior from Mojoworld, who has a history with the X-Men. Given to the team by Mojo in order for them to fight Proteus, and stayed on afterward.

See X-Men: '80s Members

Spider-Man 2099 - Miguel O'Hara

A version of Miguel O'Hara who joined the team after Proteus unmasked him

Power Princess - Zarda

A member of the Squadron Supreme. Joined the team to help them pursue and take down Proteus. Stayed for a while to keep an eye on the team and left to rejoin the Squadron Supreme when she was satisfied they could handle fixing realities without her.

Psylocke - Betsy Braddock

The Psylocke from our 616 timeline.

See X-Men

Sage - Tessa

The Sage from our 616 timeline.

See X-Men

Mystiq - Raphael-Raven Darkholme

An alternate version of Msytique

  • And I Must Scream: Last seen trapped in the Panoptichron
  • Blue-Skinned Space Babe: Noticeably averted, as this version of Mystique is male and is unable to change genders when shapeshifting.
  • Distaff Counterpart: While Mystique is capable of transforming into other genders, she identifies as female. Mystiq identifies as male.
  • Nice Guy: He's incredibly good-natured and cordial

Rogue - Anna Raven

Cat - Katherine Pryde

Gambit - Remy Lebeau

  • And I Must Scream: Last seen trapped in the Panoptichron
  • In-Name-Only: Unique in that he is the only Exile who shares nothing in common with his 616 counterpart beyond his name. His powers, appearance, race, and parents are completely different from the 616 Gambit.

     Other Exiles 

After the Crystal Palace absorbed the New Exiles, a new recruitment process was established. These Exiles were pulled from their timelines a fraction of a second before they were killed. Morph plays the role of their Timebroker and Blink rounds out the team as their sixth member and teleporter.
As revealed in the last issue, they are just one team out of many who are being recruited to fix the multiverse, with each new team having their own Timebroker and a veteran Exile to lead them

  • You Can't Go Home Again: Unlike the veteran Exiles, who are able to return to their home timelines now that they have control over the Panoptichron, these Exiles can't return without risking destabilizing their timelines. Also, the fact that they're supposed to be dead prevents them from returning without potentially causing great distress to their friends and family.


The Panther - T'Chaka

Beast - Henry McCoy

  • Straight Gay: In a relationship with his reality's Wonder Man.

The Witch - Wanda Maximoff

  • Dead Person Impersonation: The last issue reveals she is secretly the alternate Wanda from the team's first mission, having replaced the team's original Wanda after the latter was killed.

Polaris - Lorna Dane

     Weapon X 

The other reality-hopping team, sent to do the tasks the Exiles can't or won't do. As a result of their missions and their darker nature, they go through members at an astounding rate, to the extent we never seem them with the same line-up twice. When an alternate version of Hyperion was recruited, he quickly seized control and tried to turn the group into his own personal private army. After a massive battle which killed most of what was left of the group, they disbanded.

Sabretooth - Victor Creed
The same Sabretooth who raised Blink, and the team leader. One of the original line-up, and one of few members who actually survived.

Deadpool - Wade Wilson

The Merc with the Mouth, sans the mouth. This version of Deadpool is a stone-cold killer without the usual humor Deadpool is known for.

Kane - Garrison Kane

Another team founder, and... that's about it for him.

Maverick - Christopher Nord

One of the team founders, the only thing we know about Maverick is that he was an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. back home, and that he died at the hands (well, shield) of an alternate Captain America.

  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: On Captain America's shield. Notably, one that looks like a freaking buzzsaw (Most likely the impostors created by Magus in Infinity War comic). It's still there when his body's sent home.
  • Overt Operative: An agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. wearing a bright yellow outfit. And yet he's apparently Nick Fury's best operative.


Another team founder, who was also a member of Weapon X in his home reality. He died very early on.

Spider - Peter Parker

A version of Peter Parker who was on death-row for multiple murder when he was found by the Carnage Symbiote.

  • Ax-Crazy: He gladly sided with Hyperion's coup as long as it meant he got to kill lots of people.
  • Expy: His twisted sense of humor is akin to that of Deadpool.
  • Kill It with Fire: How he dies.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: To drive the point him, when his real face is shown underneath the symbiote, he's got zits, greasy hair, and bad teeth, looking like a standard Basement-Dweller or greasy nerd.
  • The Sociopath: Explicitly states he just wants to kill people for the hell of it.
  • Villain Has a Point: As horrible and insane as he is, he rightly points out how messed up Colossus's relationship with an alternate Shadowcat is, since she's technically "Kissing her dead boyfriend."

Storm - Ororo Munroe

A much younger version of Storm, who hasn't yet come into her Mutant powers, and instead relies on magic.

She-Hulk - Jen Walters


A much less empathetic version of The Avengers' resident synthezoid, replaced Kaine.

  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Much to his co-workers' irritation. It took a Colony Drop to finish him off for good.
  • The Spock: A decidedly dark version. He's coldly logical and efficient, and has little regard or care for others.
  • Would Hurt a Child: When he learns a mission directive is to kill a child, he has no hesitation trying to fulfil it.

Iron Man - Tony Stark

Deadpool's replacement. Has a much bulkier armor than usual.

  • Eye Scream: Longshot inflicts this on him.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: He gets blinded, then sent back to his homeworld sans armor, where the people he victimised are waiting for him. The last he's seen, he's surrendering at gunpoint.
  • War for Fun and Profit: What he did to his world, but he got found out. He's not exactly happy about going home.

Gambit - Remy Lebau

The replacement for Sabretooth, both as a member and as team-leader.

  • An Arm and a Leg: Courtesy of Hyperion, in an attempt to get rid of the Tallus. It just moved to Gambit's other arm.
  • Happily Married: With his reality's Storm.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In an attempt to kill Hyperion. It didn't work.
  • Token Good Teammate: Still willing to kill, but he's much nicer than his associates, and refused to go along with Hyperion's madness.

Angel - Warren Worthington III

Colossus - Piotr Rasputin

  • Token Good Teammate: To the extent his teammates even wonder why he was put on their team in the first place.

Ms. Marvel - Carol Danvers

  • The Dark Chick: Especially when she sides with Hyperion.
  • In Love with Your Carnage: She seems to get turned on by Hyperion's destructive tendencies and is more than happy to help him kill people, most likely because she wants to be the queen to his king.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Hasn't got a problem sleeping with Hyperion among the many freshly dead bodies of the Xavier Institute.


  • Arc Villain: For being a series without recurring foes, Hyperion is a serious threat to the exiles and Weapon X for a good 16 or so issues, both directly and indirectly thanks to his manipulations.
  • Bald of Evil: His hair was slightly burnt off at the end of "King Hyperion." When he returned in "A Blink In Time" he was completely bald.
  • Beware the Superman: Almost single-handedly brought about the destruction of his universe's humanity.
  • Dark Is Evil: His chest symbol contains a small black circle in the middle, something the regular Hyperion lacks. Given its location, it serves to illustrate his heart is black. In his later appearances his costume becomes blacker.
  • Expy: While Hyperion is normally one for Superman, this one feels like a version of Ultraman, Superman's Evil Counterpart in the Crime Syndicate of Amerika. Specifically the Antimatter Universe version, who was much crueler and vindictive than the Pre-Crisis Ultraman.
  • Flying Brick: He's a Superman Expy. It comes with the territory.
  • Hate Sink: He is a loathsome, remorseless sociopath and there is absolutely nothing good or redeemable about him.
  • Manipulative Bastard: His time in the Crystal Palace had him playing the part of manipulator, trying to get the exiles in trouble, or out of the way.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: In his first story arc, he stopped Colossus from killing an alternate version of Shadowcat. This is only because the Tallus's mission was for them to kill the rest of the mutants in this universe, and since Hyperion planned on taking over, it meant they had to keep the other mutants alive to so Weapon X wouldn't be sent away. Once he stopped giving a shit, he let Shadowcat get sucked into outer space alongside Colossus.
  • The Sociopath: He killed all superpowered beings in his universe, saw humanity wipe itself out trying to kill him, and the only thing he really felt was bored by the experience.
  • Tyrant Takes the Helm: The second he joined the team, he insisted that everyone do things his way. And his way was taking over the world.
