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.
- Amazing Technicolor Population: Has purple skin.
- Bad Present: Where she's from, Charles Xavier was murdered long before he could ever form the X-Men, and Apocalypse woke up early.
- Break the Cutie: Story of her life.
- Facial Markings
- Fish out of Water: She's from one of the most dystopian realities out there, so she's not used to the conventions of Marvel universes. It's also the reason she's put in charge, after the team's disastrous first mission.
- Green Eyes: Bright green.
- Like Parent, Like Spouse: Was raised by blonde, muscular, clawed, bearded badass Sabretooth. Fell in love with blonde, muscular, clawed, bearded badass Mimic.
- Luke, I Am Your Father: Though she doesn't know that, she is a descendant of none other than Apocalypse.
- Most Common Superpower
- Non-Indicative Name: Her name comes from the sound made when she teleports.
- Parental Substitute: Sabretooth, of all people.
- Put on a Bus: She took a leave of absence to recuperate from Mimic's death, among other unpleasant things.
- Something Completely Different: If you think that her miniseries revolved around the Ragtag Bunch of Misfits fighting against a tyrant in another dimension... well, you are technically right, but not exactly in a way you think.
- Strapped to an Operating Table: Spent a lot of her childhood being experimented on by Mr Sinister.
- Teleport Spam
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
- Sad Clown: His mother died when he was thirteen. The constant jokes came after, as an attempt to lighten his father's mood.
- Shape Shifter: Into pretty much anything. Man, woman, animal, vegetable or mineral.
- "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.
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.
- Dead Little Sister: His brother James, Warpath in regular X-Men continuity, died some years ago.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
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.
Magik - Illyana Rasputin
An aggressive Russian sorceress with a short temper, who replaced Blink as the team teleporter.
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.
Miguel O'Hara - Spider-Man 2099
A version of Miguel O'Hara who joined the team after Proteus unmasked him
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.
Kaine - Garrison Kaine
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. 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.
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 Avenger's
resident synthezoid, replaced Kaine.
Iron Man - Tony Stark
Deadpool's replacement. Has a much bulkier armor than usual.
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.
