See [[ComicBook/DominoMarvelComics her page]] for tropes and more info.


* AnythingThatMoves: Originally asexual, but has recently become "sexually curious about anything with a pulse."
* AwesomeMcCoolname: An essential trait for any successful "entertainer" in Mojoworld.
* BiTheWay: Since discovering sexuality, he has expressed no particular gender preference (see Anything That Moves above).
* CanNotSpitItOut: Sometimes starts to tell the truth about his apparent connection to Longshot, but usually stops himself or gets interrupted.
* DualWielding: He very often uses multiple swords.
* FacialMarkings: He has a starburst-shaped marking on his right eye
* GladiatorRevolt: Was involved in the Cadre Alliance back on Mojoworld, which was fighting to overthrow [[DimensionLord Mojo V]].
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: Let's just say that his love of combat, and willingness to accept injury as a part of it, make this essential.
* HalfHumanHybrid: [[spoiler: He is the biological son of Dazzler, a human mutant, and Longshot, an ArtificialHuman who also happens to be genetically based on Shatterstar himself, due to a StableTimeLoop]].
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Rictor for years, to the point where it eventually became HoYay. Then they were given a RelationshipUpgrade and the "heterosexual" part got tossed out the window.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice He's been known to run ''himself'' through with his swords in order to get an opponent coming at him behind.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Because otherwise there's no real reason for him to have one.
* KidFromTheFuture: Comes from the future of [[AnotherDimension Mojoworld]], but is in fact [[spoiler: the son of Dazzler and Longshot, neither of whom remembers his birth because he [[LaserGuidedAmnesia wiped their memories of it]]]].
* MyOwnGrampa: [[spoiler: Now officially gives the Summers family a run for their money when it comes to TimeTravel tangled origin stories.]]
* ManlyGay: Almost to the point of TestosteronePoisoning.
* NinetiesAntiHero: Originally a standard bearer for the genre, complete with impractically long hair, lots of pouches and padded headgear, and lots and lots of swords. Although when he reappeared in ''Comicbook/XFactor'' he had abandoned the long braids and taken to wearing what could be seen as very hip, but plausible street clothes and his weapons were usually concealed.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: Was raised specifically to be a gladiator.
* RefugeeFromTVLand: Comes from Mojoworld, where television is life; tends to say things like "May you have many spinoffs." Also offended by the fact that actors on Earth that perform fighting roles often lack genuine combat skills since on Mojoworld all the "shows" are ''real''.
* SmugSuper: He's a badass and he knows it.
* SuddenlySexuality: Despite his buckets of HoYay with Rictor over the years, Shatterstar went from being virtually asexual to being ''very'' interested in sex, including with men (especially Rictor), when he was reintroduced in ''X-Factor''.
* TakeThat: His bisexuality, and Marvel's insistence on its remaining canon, seems to be an open dig on creator Liefeld's own aversion to gay characters.
* ThinkingUpPortals: Shatterstar can create X-shaped portals through space, time and into other dimensions by focusing energy through his swords. He also needs an "anchor" to help him do this, which is a person with whom he has a special relationship. Thus far he has been able to use Rictor and Layla Miller (both of whom he has slept with), as well as Longshot [[spoiler: (who is both a partial clone of him, as well as being his biological father)]].
* VibroWeapon: His seldom-used mutant power is to generate vibrations from his body, turning his swords into these. At one point it was revealed that the oddest of his swords, which has two side-by-side blades, was designed to somehow convert this power into a SwordBeam. The number of times he has actually used this power on-panel, however, can be counted on both hands.
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: He was brought up to be a killing machine, to have no sense of emotional connections with people. Most of his character growth since his first appearance has been about learning all about human emotions.

!!'''Maria Callasantos / Feral'''

* AnimeHair
* AxCrazy: When her mutation gets the better of her.
* CatGirl
* {{Expy}}: Of Wolfsbane.
* FaceHeelTurn: When the X-Force attempted to rescue government official Henry Peter Gyrich from the terrorist Mutant Liberation Front, led by Reignfire. Feral hated Gyrich, who was no friend to mutants, and Reignfire persuaded her to join the Mutant Liberation Front and to kill Gyrich battling with her ex-comrades.
* HealingFactor: Feral is capable of healing mild to moderate injuries much faster than an ordinary human. Injuries such as broken bones can completely heal within a few days. She is incapable of regenerating missing limbs or organs.
* KilledOffForReal / StuffedIntoTheFridge: [[spoiler: At the hands of Sabertooth who slew her ''very'' messily.]]
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: Recently she clashed with Wolfsbane and Shatterstar, trying to kill Rahne and her child, but it turned out that she was just a ghost, and was returned to the world to serve as anchor for the demons and gods, which are hunting for Rahne's child.
* PrehensileTail: Feral possesses a long, prehensile tail that she uses to help balance herself while running or during combat situations. She is also capable of supporting her weight with her tail.
* SelfMadeOrphan: Both Feral and her sister Thornn had been abused by their stepfather until she killed their parents as well as her siblings (not Thornn though).
* SuperSenses / TheNoseKnows: Feral possesses superhumanly acute senses of sight, smell, and hearing comparable to those of certain animals. Feral is capable of seeing with greater clarity and at greater distances than an ordinary human (even in near-total darkness). Her hearing is enhanced similarly, enabling her to both hear sounds that ordinary humans can't and to hear at much greater distances. Feral is able to use her highly developed sense of smell to track a target by scent. Her sense of smell is so acute, she is able to detect the slight chemical differences in different brands of deodorants that, supposedly, have the same scent
* TokenEvilTeammate: Feral in the early issues was a loose cannon. She pratically almost killed Cannonball during training, almost killed her enemies only being held back by her teammates, and her teammates barely trusted her. She murdered her mother, stepfather, possibly pushed her sister to her death, and watched her little brother fall to his death(when she could have helped him)....then this led to her FaceHeelTurn.

** [[spoiler: ShapeShifterSwanSong]]

See {{Deadpool}}.

!!'''Adam X'''

* BloodyMurder: His powers are weaponizing other people's blood by making them bleed then igniting the oxygen in the exposed blood. Or cutting himself and making ''his own'' blood explode after bleeding on them.
* FacialMarkings
* FadSuper
* HalfHumanHybrid: He is a half-human, half-Shi'ar
* LongLostSibling: Heavily implied to have been the third Summers brother... WordOfGod, however, says that he's just the ''fourth'', and a half-brother at that.
* NinetiesAntiHero: He had long hair, a backwards baseball cap, and his power was to make his blood explode so he had to cut himself in battle. Oh, and technically, his full name is "[[XtremeKoolLetterz Adam X the X-Treme]]".
** Recently when he turned up in the ''Utopia'' crossover, his nineties look was toned down by getting rid of his spiky costume and many blades. However, his backwards baseball cap and long hair still remained and he swears more than the other rioters.
* ScaryImpracticalArmor
* XtremeKoolLetterz

[[folder: Villains]]


* BigBad
* CainAndAbel
* CloningBlues
* EvilTwin To Cable
* RedHerring: Upon his introduction, it was implied that Stryfe might somehow ''be'' Cable, since they have the same face, and were talking about their knowledge of the future while using the same {{Catch Phrase}}s. It wasn't until later that we learned the real reason for these similarities.
* ScaryImpracticalArmor: Stryfe wore a suit of armour that looked like it was made out of blades, giving many readers the impression that he'd decapitate himself if he ever shrugged his shoulders. To say nothing of the SpikesOfVillainy...
* SpikesOfVillainy: He wears a spiky armoured costume
* SplitAtBirth: Stryfe was created as a clone of the infant Cable who was severely infected with techno-organic virus and would make him as a perfect copy in case the original dies. Unfortunately, he was then kidnapped and raised by the evil Apocalypse.
* TangledFamilyTree
* VillainousLegacy: After Stryfe is defeated, it turns out that he has left behind a virus that spreads through humans and kills those with the x-gene, devastating mutantkind for years. Appropriately, it is referred to as the Legacy virus, a name given because Stryfe was constantly ranting about legacies.

!!'''Tamara Kurtz / Dragoness'''

* DragonLady
* NotQuiteFlight: She possesses a jet pack and and a set of bionic wings
* ShockAndAwe (Bio-electric blasts)

!!'''Michael Mc Cain / Forearm'''

* PunnyName: His mutation is having ''four arms''
* SpiderLimbs
* SuperStrength


* ActionBomb / FlyingBrick: He is almost an {{Expy}} of Cannonball with explosive powers upon impact
* OffWithHisHead: In X-Cutioner's Song crossover, Kamikaze charged behind Archangel (who was busy fighting Forearm) as a sneak attack but he was [[spoiler:accidentally decapitated when Archangel swung his sharp metallic wings]].
* MeaningfulName: As mentioned above, his reckless overconfidence had [[spoiler:cost his life]].
--> '''Boom-Boom''' (to Archangel): Well, I guess with a name like Kamikaze, you just know he's gonna buy it.


* ArtificialLimbs
* ButtMonkey: Poor Reaper [[RunningGag always]] loses his limbs at every fight and getting artificial limb replacements.
* ForTheEvulz: Reaper enjoys his terrorist work, looking as it's more fun than as a job.
* TheParalyzer: Reaper can paralyze his foes by touching them from contact through his skin or scythe before finishing them off but with his artificial limbs, it has less effect.
* SinisterScythe


* FieryRedhead
* LightIsNotGood: Other than projecting heat, Strobe also has light blasts. She [[spoiler:temporarily blinded Rogue this way]] in X-Cutioner's Song crossover.
* PlayingWithFire


* BarrierWarrior
* DumbMuscle
* FatBastard

!!'''Heather Tucker / Tempo'''

* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Although she was allied with MLF, she once seemed to see error in those ways and tried to retire to a normal life. However in Messiah Complex crossover, she reappeared as a villain again when she joined the Acolytes led by Exodus. And in the end, she moved to Utopia and began to work with the X-Men, fighting both Empath and Selene's army.
* TimeMaster: Tempo can manipulate time, though only in her immediate vicinity. Most often she slows or stops her opponents or speeds herself or her teammates.
** The reason for the range limit is that she actually just alters people's ''perception'' of time...which utterly fails during a fight with X-Factor because Quicksilver's perception is so fast he barely notices the difference.

!!'''Kristina Anderson / Thumbelina'''

* [[BigBrotherInstinct Big Sister Instinct]]: When she heard that her brother (Slab from Nasty Boys) was taken into custody by X-Factor, she went on a mission with her team to bust him out of prison and scolded her [[DumbMuscle brother]] for getting himself captured.
* [[IncredibleShrinkingMan Incredible Shrinking Woman]]
* WrenchWench: Subverted, she is a fat lady who uses her shrinking powers to fix mechanical objects and is rarely sent out to the field.

!!'''Richard Gill / Wildside'''

* AxeCrazy: Like this is a surprise.
* MasterOfIllusion: In case you were wondering what his actual powers were. Ironically, he doesn't like to use them, preferring to get physical.
* ForTheEvulz


* MyHeroZero
* TeleportersAndTransporters
* TheVoiceless

!!X-Statix (the second X-Force series)

[[folder: Team Members]]
!!'''Tike Alicar / Anarchist'''

* AngryBlackMan: More obvious after the death of the Spike; lampshaded when he describes himself as having "irrational feelings of race-guilt".
* TheArtifact: Fears this during the Spike's tenor on the team, as he's sure it signs his death warrant.
* BloodyMurder: Sort of, in that his powers stem from his acidic ''sweat'', which he can use to project powerful acidic force beams.
* BoyMeetsGhoul: Begins a loose relationship with Dead Girl.
* ButNotTooBlack: He struggles with the idea that he's not a "real" black man because he's adopted and was raised by white parents.
* TheGlassesComeOff: [[spoiler:Immediately before his death.]]
* TheLancer: Every element of his design and personality was specifically crafted to fit into this image.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Designed to resemble Dennis Rodman in both appearance and personality
* OutDamnedSpot: Tike has a handwashing compulsion that gets worse during his period as official team leader.
* SunglassesAtNight: While it's never addressed, he is always seen wearing his shades, even in flashbacks to his childhood and in the shower. The implication that they're prescription is fairly strong.
* TenMinuteRetirement: Quits the team to do a road show in the first arc of X-Statix.

!!'''Mickey Tork / Bloke'''

* BuryYourGays: A parody version, at least.
* CaptainEthnic: Every gay stereotype you can imagine rolled up into one
* ManlyGay: An avid bodybuilder and an especially brutal vigilante
* {{Retirony}}: Before the new X-Force's first mission he has a romantic get together with his boyfriend and it's established that he's the only member of the team in a relationship. He dies very soon afterward.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Died on his first mission


* BadBoss
* BigBad: Of the first arc of the series.
* BrokenPedestal: When [[spoiler: he tries to get Edie to kill Guy and it's revealed that he killed all the previous team as a publicity stunt.]]
* DirtyOldMan
* LaserGuidedKarma: He's killed by Edie not long after he tried to rape her paralyzed body, with the same gun he tried to set Guy up to die with.
* RedRightHand: He has a missing arm (which apparently used to be superpowered) and red eyes.
** RedEyesTakeWarning
* StarterVillain

!!'''Dead Girl'''

* AttractiveZombie: She becomes an in-universe sex symbol once the ProgressivelyPrettier starts.

* BoyMeetsGhoul: Begins a loose relationship with Tyke.
* CuteMonsterGirl
* DeadpanSnarker
* EmbarrassingFirstName: [[spoiler:Moonbeam]]
* FromASingleCell: In her first appearance, she gets reduced to a pile of smoking mush on the floor by an energy blast, but totally regenerates a few minutes later.
* NighInvulnerable: Several versions at once. I mean, she's already ''dead'', what more can you do to her?
* ProgressivelyPrettier: Early issues often have her drawn as quite wizened and mummified. Soon this changes so that she usually just looks like a really hot girl with blue-grey skin and rings round her eyes, although she occasionally looks more "dead" when she uses her spiritual powers.
* QuestForIdentity
* RevenantZombie: With added mediumistic powers.

* IntelligibleUnintelligible: One page actually provides a translation from the symbols he speaks in to English letters. For the most part, it's still accurate even in Doop's modern appearances.
* NoodleIncident: Doop's history before joining the team is occasionally hinted at but never really explored. Suffice it to say, he knows Wolverine well enough that Wolvie knows Doop-speak.
* ReallyGetsAround
* SuddenlySexuality: Revealed to be bisexual in a comic issue after the main run.
* WingDingLish: However, it has been claimed that Doop's dialogue is in a wingding font known as "Roswell Wreckage".

!!'''Robbie Rodriguez / El Guapo'''

* CanonImmigrant: In canon itself, no less.
* CompanionCube: He talks to his skateboard when nobody else is around, and even has arguments with it that sometimes get physical. Whether he's out of his mind and doing it himself or the board is partially sentient is never established.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Received probably the single most unceremonious death of any member of the team.
* LatinLover: With a name that means "the handsome one"...
* NewMeat: After joining the team he has his own mini arc about getting used to it
* TotallyRadical

!!'''Henrietta Hunter'''

* BackFromTheDead
* BrownNote: Her vengeful spirit turns her [[spoiler: doubly-posthumous]] hit single into this.
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: Looks suspiciously like Diana, Princess of Wales with dark hair.
* ParodySue
* ThePrimaDonna
* StringyHairedGhostGirl: [[spoiler:after her second death]].

!!'''Arnie Lundberg / the Mysterious Fan Boy'''

* BigBad: Of the first arc of X-Statix
* TheCape: During his time with X-Statix he tried his damnedest to adhere to this archetype and his innocent worship pushed the rest of the team to at least try and do the same.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: His face is terribly scarred on one side
* PsychopathicManchild: Reality isn't something that agrees with Arnie all that much. The answer, of course, is to simply use his powers to change it.
* RealityWarper
* StalkerWithACrush: He thought he was in love with Edie, even though they'd never really met.
* StrawFan: Arnie was a huge fan of X-Force, but [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks doesn't think much of the change to X-Statix]] or Edie, his favorite member of the team, being killed and replaced.

!!'''Guy Smith / Orphan, aka Mister Sensitive'''

* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: His skin is a purplish pink
* DeathSeeker: Has a secret death wish, if his daily game of Russian Roulette is any indication.
** He stopped this after he started dating Edie, only to pick it up again after her death.
* DisabilitySuperpower: In an interesting use of the trope, the Orphan's senses are so strong that they're extremely debilitating.
* ILetGwenStacyDie: Is hit with this really hard after Edie dies, and it's the focus of the following arc, the first one of X-Statix.
* MeaningfulRename: After his first mission, which involved reuniting a child with his parents, he changed his codename to "the Orphan" so he'd never forget his roots. He kept the name even after discovering his parents had been alive the whole time, partially on the advice of his publicist. After the Henrietta Hunter debacle, he changed it back to Mr. Sensitive.
* ParentalAbandonment: When they discovered he was a mutant. Worse, they topped it off by [[MoralEventHorizon burning their house down with him inside.]] And he was ''3 years old at the time''.
* ReincarnationRomance: parodied in the ''Dead Girl'' miniseries: we find Guy initially searching for Edie in Heaven, but later find out that they already resumed their love affair there and that she dumped him because she wasn't ready to make an eternal commitment.
* SuperSenses: The Orphan's powers, exaggerated to the point of deconstruction.

!!'''William Robert Reilly / Phat'''

* ArmouredClosetGay: After claiming he was never really gay and that was just a phase he was going through; somehow this caused his powers to become unreliable/disappear almost entirely until he told the truth and permanently came out.
* BodyHorror: When he's full of gunk
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Often goes barefoot to use his powers more effectively.
* FauxYay: Myles and Phat until they realise that they both really are gay.
* {{Gayngster}}
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Dies shielding everyone else from the bomb implanted in Mister Code's body.]]
* MultipleChoicePast: When Phat first appears, he had a happy upper-class upbringing and is only [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy pretending]] to have been a hard-luck [[{{Gangbangers}} gangbanger]]. When his parents appear a second time, they really are white trash (although it's possible they might be acting as well).
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Specifically meant to resemble Music/{{Eminem}}.
* RubberMan
* ShockValueRelationship: Vivisector and Phat's relationship started as a publicity stunt, and they eventually decided that while they ''are'' both gay, that's all it was and they were never really attracted to each other.
* StoutStrength: His powers are that he can fill up his body with extradimensional gunk, causing it to balloon to grotesque proportions and increasing his strength exponentially
* WhiteGangbangers: Phat deliberately crafted this image around himself as a ploy to gain X-Force membership; he's actually from a very wealthy family.

!!'''Saint Anna'''

* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Red skinned
* TheFunInFuneral: "Here, your daughter wanted us to bring her ashes to you so you c-[[CrowningMomentOfFunny ACHOO. Whoops."]]
* SacrificialLamb
* WeHardlyKnewYe
* WhiteMagicianGirl: Saintly young woman with healing powers.

!!'''Spike Freeman'''

* AscendedExtra: In ''X-Statix'' he takes a much more active role in the team and the story.
* TheChessmaster
* CorruptCorporateExecutive
* FictionFiveHundred: Is a trillionare
* TheManBehindTheMan: Spike Freeman and Coach, subverted because Spike isn't quite as evil as Coach was.
* ManipulativeBastard
* MoneyDearBoy:[[invoked]] His prime concern in just about any situation.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Alleged to be an uncomplimentary depiction of former ''X-Force'' artist Creator/RobLiefeld.
* OneSteveLimit: averted with Spike Freeman and ''"the"'' Spike; [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] when Freeman says he really likes Spike, and not just because of the name.

!!'''Darian Elliot / the Spike'''

* AngryBlackMan: This facet of his personality is used to foster conflict between him and the Anarchist.
* BodyHorror: His power of growing bone spikes out of his body
* CanonImmigrant: Based heavily on Spyke from ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'', though the name and the powers are pretty much all that they have in common.
* MalcolmXerox: The Spike at his worst.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath
* ScaryBlackMan
* SixthRangerTraitor: Ultimately betrayed the team to the Bush Rangers. However, he later regretted this decision and died trying to save the team.
* SleevesAreForWimps
* SpellMyNameWithAThe
* SpikeShooter

!!'''Edith "Edie" Sawyer / U-Go Girl'''

* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Her skin is a lilac hue.
* BareYourMidriff
* CoolBigSis: Tells her daughter she's this.
* CleavageWindow: In an X shape.
* FunctionalAddict: Usually required some sort of drug to make her powers work, strongly implied to be a form of Kick.
* TheGwenStacy: To the Orphan
* PantyShot: The shortness of her skirt leads to a lot of them. [[MsFanservice This is probably quite deliberate in-canon]].
* ParentalAbandonment: she left her baby with her parents because she wasn't ready to be a mother
* ReincarnationRomance: parodied in the ''Dead Girl'' miniseries: we find Guy initially searching for Edie in Heaven, but later find out that they already resumed their love affair there and that she dumped him because she wasn't ready to make an eternal commitment.
* SecretDiary: A whole issue after her death has Venus reading her diary and some extra details being given about her backstory.

!!'''Venus Dee Milo'''

* CantHaveSexEver: Because she doesn't really have a body. Then Professor X shows her a special suit he had made in case she ever wanted a relationship to go in that direction.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Nowhere to be seen or even mentioned in the ''Dead Girl'' miniseries, which involved the Orphan in the afterlife still pining after U-Go Girl.
* DeathByOriginStory: Subverted as usual: when her powers first manifested she accidentally teleported her family away to an unknown fate and she was terrified that she killed them or sent them to a hell-dimension, but when she finally finds them in another dimension they've been having a perfectly OK time.
%%* EnergyBeing
* InvisibleAnatomy: Her upper arms and legs
* SenselessSacrifice: [[spoiler:Gives up her chance of surviving the final battle in an attempt to save Guy and Tike. It doesn't work.]]
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Considered one within the canon itself, especially by fanboys like Arnie Lundberg
* ZettaiRyouiki

!!'''Myles Alfred / Vivisector'''

* BadassBookworm
* BashBrothers: With Phat
* CallingTheOldManOut: Except Myles himself, no matter how harsh his feelings for his father turned, could never bring himself to express these frustrations; it took a MadScientist who had taken his powers (and, unwittingly, primal thoughts and feelings) for himself for them to ever get out.
* {{Expy}}: he '''is''' Wesley from ''Series/{{Angel}}'', if Wesley were a gay werewolf.
* FauxYay: Myles and Phat until they realise that they both really are gay.
* InsufferableGenius
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Myles isn't a traditional werewolf, just a mutant who can turn into a wolfman.
* ShockValueRelationship: Vivisector and Phat's relationship started as a publicity stunt, and they eventually decided that while they ''are'' both gay, that's all it was and they were never really attracted to each other.
* StraightGay
* WellDoneSonGuy

See Characters/NewMutants

!!'''Laura Kinney / X-23'''

See ComicBook/{{X 23}}

* TheCassandra: Laura's attempts to warn Logan that Warren can't be trusted because of his violently unstable and unpredictable personality fall on deaf ears, as Logan repeatedly dismisses her concerns. Sure enough, Warren is triggered to revert into Archangel at the worst possible time. Logan immediately snaps at her not to say "I told you so."
* HandicappedBadAss: Kimura hacks off one of her arms with a ''chainsaw''. Laura is ''still'' able to utterly destroy the garrison of the base where she's being held.

!!'''Neena Thurman / Domino'''

!!'''Josh Foley / Elixir'''

A teenage boy who joined an anti-mutant group with the desire to be popular. The group attacks a team of teenage mutants from Xavier's and he discovers he has the power to heal during the fight. Rejected by his friends and family, he moves in at Xavier's and initially has a hard time fitting in. He has a controversial relationship with Wolfsbane, because he's technically underage. As he continued to study, his powers grew enormously, going from simple healing to genetic manipulation. He eventually turns his skin gold after being forced to heal himself. After a large group of students were killed by anti-mutant fanatics, he went mental and developed the power to create disease and kill people as well. Since then, he's been overwhelmed by his power and is starting to question the world at large. He has "mood skin" - when he's feeling calm, happy, or using his healing power, his skin is gold. But when he's feeling angry, depressed or using his powers to do harm, his skin turns black.

On a side note, it's too damn bad he wasn't introduced early enough to be include in the X-Men action [=RPGs=], since he's the only member of the X-Men ever to have dedicated healing as a power.

* AGodAmI: Briefly at times.
* AntiHero: Type I ----> Type IV
* AttentionWhore: He got better.
* {{Foil}}: Him and Wither were mirror images of each other.
* HotForStudent: At one point, caught in a LoveTriangle between Rahne and Laurie.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Literally, it would seem. He starts out as a jerk, but is ultimately a good guy who eventually dedicates himself to learning and helping others, vowing to never use his 'dark side' again. This doesn't always go to plan, however, and he does have the occasional [[DeadpanSnarker sarcastic comment]] to share.
* KidAnova
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Ever since he discovered the ''true'' extent of his powers
* NeverGotToSayGoodbye: To Laurie, who was [[spoiler:shot in the head by a sniper]] right after a huge argument between them.
* OddCouple: With Prodigy
* [[spoiler: ShootTheDog: one of Josh's old schoolmates, [[TouchOfDeath Wither]], had become an OmnicidalManiac in service to [[BigBad Selene]] to the point that he had to use his TouchOfDeath to put him down.]]
* TheMedic[=/=]HealingHands: His position in the team and his powers, though they go ''far'' beyond that, with it being theorised that he's an Omega Class mutant. Certainly, he's capable of turning Rahne partly into an Asgardian to survive her pregnancy by Hrimhari.
* TheSlacker: At first.
* YinYangBomb: He can either heal or kill with a touch, which changes his appearance to gold or black. In the Uncanny X-Men 2016 Annual, he becomes capable of even ''raising the dead.'' However, the more he heals, the stronger his urge to kill becomes until they balance one another out.

!!'''Telford Porter / Vanisher'''

* AntiHero: type V
* BoxedCrook: He is kept under control by Elixir who gave him an inoperable brain tumor
* ButtMonkey: He's completely over his head, scared out of his mind, forced to help out by an inoperable brain tumor only Elixir can reveal, and surrounded by people willing to torture him ''on top'' of that.

!!'''Reverand Craig'''

* [[AbusiveParents Abusive Father]]: Wolfsbane's father helped a group of religious fanatics brainwash his daughter to be a programmed killer sent after her teammate Angel. However, the plan did not turn up well on him.
* [[spoiler:DeathByIrony]]: Reverend Craig [[spoiler:falls victim to the psychological conditioning The Purifiers put Wolfsbane through, when they were only able to capture her because she was trying to "save" him]].
* EvilerThanThou
* KarmicDeath ''Very''.
* OffingTheOffspring: Earlier on, he tried to kill his daughter Rahne (by chasing her down with a mob and burning her at the stake!) but fails when Moira rescued and adopted her.
* {{Scotireland}}
* SinisterMinister


* AIIsACrapshoot: Subverted, as Bastion's original incarnation was explicitly made to hunt down mutants and while he gained more sentience over the years he not only held on to his directive but became [[GoneHorriblyRight much more creative in how he carried it out as well.]]
* ColdBloodedTorture: In the ''Zero Tolerance'' crossover, he had abused Jubilee who was held prisoner with both physical and psychological torture.
* FakeUltimateHero
* ManipulativeBastard
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain

!!'''Leper Queen'''

* CoolMask: She wears her mask to cover her disfigured face
* [[HeWhoFightsMonsters She Who Fights Monsters]]
* ScarsAreForever: She allegedly started the group because of her hatred of mutants. This hatred stemmed from the fact that her daughter was born a mutant and her powers ended up killing herself and disfiguring Leper Queen's face.


She is X-23's handler in the Facility that created X-23 and assigns the clone to missions. Throughout Kimura's time as X-23's handler, she abused X-23, finding any excuse to bully her, regardless of whether X-23 failed or not.

* NighInvulnerable
* SadistTeacher
* SmugSnake: She's dangerous, but when she runs into someone who can actually hurt her (specifically, a wrathful Emma Frost), things do not end well for her.

!!'''Eli Bard'''

Born Eliphas, he was a Roman senator that was bewitched by Selene and turned into a vampire-like immortal.

* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler: At the end, he is executed by Selene after doing everything in her name. Even his own enemy Warpath was shocked by his death]].
* AntiVillain: It's very hard to hate the guy once you learn his backstory. Unlike most X-Men villains, he is neither a supremacist or bigoted himself (though he would join forces with them just to meet his own objectives) and he is motivated primarily to earn Selene's love.
* TheChessmaster: He joined the Purifiers and brought Bastion and several others deceased X-Men villains, but this was just a set up so he could feed on their souls as offering for Selene.
* TheDragon: To Selene in ''Necrosha''.
* AFateWorseThanDeath: Selene cursed him with eternal life and banished him from her presence. He walked the Earth for ages, always separated from the woman he loved.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: He was a HenpeckedHusband whose wife had no qualms in cuckolding with another man in front of him, which made Eliphas the laughing stock of everyone around him. Then he ran into Selene, who offered to love him forever if he were to sacrifice every soul in Rome to her. He failed and as punishment, she turned him into a vicious monster.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: As soon as he walked down his path of villainy, one moment of kindness had costed him everything.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Selene had magically cursed him and made him a vampire-like being. He doesn't share the same weakness as Marvel Universe vampires.
* PetTheDog: Horribly deconstructed, Eliphas was nice to a young slave girl and even gave her some jewels to help her family. After agreeing to sacrifice every soul of Rome, he tells the girl and her family to flee for their safety. Unfortunately for him, they ended up warning the authorities who arrived just in time to stop him from performing his spell.
* TookALevelInBadass: Was originally a weak willed mortal man; two thousand years later, he's a vampiric immortal who almost singlehandedly manipulates the Purifiers, comes VERY close to killing X-23, and succeeds in giving Selene all she ever wanted - godhood. Unfortunately, she wasn't that grateful.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: A textbook example.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: For all his faults, all he ever wanted was to be loved.


Former and most prominent Black Queen of the Hellfire club, Selene has been around for quite some time and is actually the oldest mutant alive. She doubles as a superior sorceress, is incredibly powerful and very hard to kill. She singlehandedly exterminated the Externals and survived total molecular disintegration. Regal, vain and manipulative, she has recently resurfaced and maybe we'll see the full extent of her powers which has never been completely revealed.

* [[AGodAmI A Goddess Am I]]: Her recent surfacing gives this as her motivation.
* TheBaroness
* ComboPlatterPowers: She can animate objects, drain people's life force to feed her youth and immortality (plus some degree of PsychicPowers and Functional Magic, and various inconsistently enhanced physical abilities). Until she got upgraded; as of Chasing Hellfire, it's "turn into living shadow, plus absorb people entirely to feed her youth and immortality, as well as take on the form of her victims.
* ImmortalityImmorality
* OfCorsetsSexy
* LesbianVampire: Perhaps it's just [[AuthorAppeal Claremont,]] but trying to turn attractive teenage psychics into her disciples seems to be a particular hobby of hers.
* [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]: Even though she doesn't need to, she really enjoys toying with people's minds to get what she wants. A lot.
* VainSorceress: Extremely.
* TheVamp: She's more than willing to use her looks and charm to her advantage.

Then Selene starts manipulating him; a beautiful woman with powers not unlike his, who can survive his death touch, who seems interested in him, and uses that to make him dance like a puppet on her strings.
