     Neal Shaara / Thunderbird III 

Neal Shaara/Thunderbird III

  • I Believe I Can Fly: Using the "superheated air" trick. He leaves a very visible fire trail behind him, which lent itself to problems during stealth missions.
  • Legacy Character: And one that doesn't make much sense, either. The Indian from India with fire powers is named after the Native American Indian with super strength, speed, and endurance...?
    • Apparently it was a last minute name swap. There were originally plans to name him Agni (after the Hindu god of fire), but then editorial realized naming a fictional hero after a god still worshipped by one of the world's largest faiths might result in... issues.
  • Love Triangle: Directly involved in the break-up of Psylocke and Archangel.
  • Naïve Newcomer: Who later became a mentor to two other naive newcomers, despite still being the new guy himself!
  • Playing with Fire: Solar plasma, technically, but it amounts to the same thing in practice. Only more so.
  • Put on a Bus: After the events of X-Treme X-Men's second arc, he and Lifeguard set to Walking the Earth in search of her brother. They've only been seen a handful of times in the last eight years, even though they're two of the mutants who explicitly kept their powers after M-Day.
  • Traumatic Superpower Awakening: His brother Sanjit went missing, and Neal and a police officer named Karima Shapandar went looking for him, only to wind up captured by Bastion's goons, where they learned Neal's brother had been turned into a Prime Sentinel. The same fate befell Karima, who had started developing feelings for Neal, but when Bastion tried assimilating Neal it just awakened his Mutant powers. Sanjit overcame his programming to save Neal and Karima, only for the later to tell Neal to get away before her own programming kicked in.

     Tessa / Sage 


  • Anti-Hero: Type IV
  • And I Must Scream: Her fate at the end of her stint with the Exiles was... unpleasant. She comes out of it in the pages of X-Treme X-Men volume 2.
  • Ascended Extra: Tessa made her first appearance in The Dark Phoenix Saga" as Sebastian Shaw's assistant and was revealed to be a much more important character later.
  • Awesome by Analysis
  • Badass Bookworm: In terms of combat prowess, she is canonically considered to be more dangerous than Wolverine. She is skilled in the martial arts and is a formidable hand-to-hand combatant thanks to her having complete conscious control over her own body.
  • Blood Knight: At times in her mercenary career.
  • Combat Stilettos: A prerequisite for any ex-Hellfire female.
  • Combo Platter Powers: Sage has a mind that works like a computer and can jump-start the mutations of those with the mutant gene but no powers (or activate the "secondary mutations" of powered mutants, which are often unrelated to their original powers, placing them in this trope's territory). And telepathy that she rarely uses, despite being nearly on par with Emma Frost.
    • The reason she never uses her telepathy is because she turns it all inward to bolster her psychic defenses. Her ability to resist telepathy when she does this is second to none.
  • Cool Shades: Often sports a pair.
  • Emotionless Girl: She is pretty emotionless sometimes, though occasionally shifting to The Stoic level when really, really worked up. Naturally, she's such an expert at Perp Sweating that her gaze alone accomplishes what Wolverine's famed "claw on either side of neck; dare me to pop the middle?" approach cannot.
  • Mission Control
  • No Name Given: Sage is yet another X-Man to not have a full name. Tessa is believed to be a part of her name, but it is unknown as to whether this is her first name, last name or even just an alias.
  • Of Corsets Sexy: She used to wear corsets when she was in Hellfire Club.
  • Photographic Memory: She's able to store everything that she experiences in a photographic memory and retrieve it immediately without the typical human pause for thought.
  • Sociopathic Hero: In her flashback sequences
  • Super Empowering: Sage has the ability to "jump-start" other mutants. Initially this was depicted as the ability to activate the latent mutations of mutants who hadn't yet manifested, but at this point it's more or less an excuse to do whatever the current writer wants to do to another mutant's powers (for example: turning Beast from apelike to lion-like, and curing Gambit's blindness).
  • Technopath: Subverted. She is called a cyberpath and her brain operates like a computer, but she doesn't seem to be able to communicate with machines on her own. She's got a spiffy command center and lives in an Everything Is Online universe. She's later gotten Cool Shades which contain a wireless link to computers.

     Jonothon Evan Starsmore / Chamber 

Jonothon Evan Starsmore/Chamber

  • Anti-Hero: Type I
  • Blessed with Suck: Chamber's mutation gave him the ability to emit fire from his mouth and chest area. His inability to turn it off eventually completely destroyed his lower jaw and most of his chest. He didn't really feel any pain from it, but he's still missing his jaw and has a nearly completely exposed ribcage.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Lost his powers and his deformity during the Decimation.
    • Status Quo Is God: Both were brought back during the "Age Of X" storyline (Thanks to a Reality Warper), and remained even after things were returned to normal.
  • Disability Superpower: See Blessed with Suck.
  • Energy Being: Very, very heavily implied.
  • Breath Weapon: Though he can't turn it off and it caused him to lose his lower jaw.
  • Goth
  • Handicapped Badass: He's lost most of his lower jaw and chest, but he's a competent fighter in spite of his injuries.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: He would be able to reconstruct his face, if he knew how.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: After losing a huge amount of his body, you can't blame him.
  • Jerkass
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: He's a distant descendant of Apocalypse, and post-Decimation he got the markings to prove it (turns out they were always there; he blew out everything from mouth-level to midriff, and didn't get healed until some years later, real-world time. To everyone's shock, he was restored with... an Apocalypse-like jaw and the markings of Apocalypse's followers on his chest. He basically said something to the effect of "When did I ever ask to be healed?").
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: During his brief stint with the New Warriors, Jono wore a sonic rig that could turn sound into energy constructs.
  • Power Degeneration: He had an explosive power that blew off his jaw and upper chest prior to joining the team. Using his power slowly widened the explosive area, he near literally had part of his face and chest "on fire".
  • Power Limiter: During his time with Generation X, it was hinted a (and even explicitly stated in a novel by writer Scott Lobdell ) that he was only ever accessing a fraction of his true potential, which is something approaching the level of X-Man or Phoenix. The reason for why he doesn't seems to be psychological. However, this has never been fully explored since Lobdell left the X-Books.
  • Psychic Powers: He needs them to talk.
  • Required Secondary Powers: Not needing to eat, breathe or drink as well as communicating telepathically. In fact, his name comes from the fact that he is a chamber for raw psionic energy. (The fire being psionic energy is also why he gets thought speak... which is actually a really fine-tune use of his power for someone who otherwise can only blow things up with it.)

     Paige Guthrie / Husk 

Paige Guthrie/Husk

  • Barbie Doll Anatomy / Magic Pants: She's naked when using her powers.
  • Deep South
  • Funetik Aksent: She slips into a Kentucky accent when scared or stressed.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: Husk was revealed as this. Her brother was already the super-hero Cannonball, and she tried everything she could to get mutant powers to develop, almost killing herself a few times. Finally she just about gave up, crying and clenching herself... when her skin started flaking off like old wallpaper. She ripped and shredded and tore herself up, which for anyone else would have been scary as hell, but for her, it was the happiest moment of her life.
  • Kid-Appeal Character
  • Magic Pants: Husk has the ability to transform her skin into any material she can think of, but she must tear off the existing layer to do so. This results in her being naked a fair amount of the time, but censor steam is omitted in some scenes where her new skin serves the purpose of a costume. She has specifically refused to revert to her human form on occasions because of her nudity.
  • May–December Romance: For a while, she was in a relationship with Archangel. This has since fallen by the wayside.

     Stacy X / Miranda Leevald 

Stacy X

     Heather Cameron / Lifeguard 

Heather Cameron/Lifeguard

  • Put on a Bus: Sent to the Xavier's School Indian Branch.
  • Shapeshifter Mode Lock: She remains stuck in a half Shi'ar form.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Of a sort. Her power is to develop whatever physical ability best helps her save lives, initially specifically someone else's life and not her own. Wings, armored skin, multiple limbs, Super Strength... the thing is, she can't predict the form it'll take. She hasn't looked fully human in some time.

     James Proudstar / Warpath 

James Proudstar/Warpath

  • Anti-Hero: Type III-IV
  • Blood Knight
  • Combat Pragmatist: His first two teachers were Emma Frost and Cable. Comes with the territory.
  • Genius Bruiser: Warpath is a very intelligent fighter. He once found out a way to incapacitate Wolverine, sneak by the rest of the X-Men, and could have killed Professor Xavier if he hadn't had a change of heart.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Also like his brother, he's very easily aggravated; They don't call him "Warpath" for nothing.
  • The Heart: Unusual, given that he's also a Blood Knight with a Hair-Trigger Temper, but when he was a part of X-Force, he was described as a physical and emotional rock for the team. Indeed, during the periods where he's not out for revenge on someone, he's a Nice Guy.
  • Knife Nut: Warpath currently dual-wields knives made of vibranium as his signature weapons. Noteworthy in that he is not Ax-Crazy at all.
  • Legacy Character: Like his brother, the above-mentioned Thunderbird, he has the same powers and wears the identical-looking costume after him during his early appearances. He still wears a nearly identical outfit to this day.
  • The Quiet One: One thing that makes Warpath so dangerous is that he doesn't always lead the charge in fights, despite being an ideal point man. Occasionally, he sneaks around, looking for a chance to ambush his targets.
  • Revenge: We first meet him as a New Mutants villain, wanting to get revenge for Thunderbird's death. He was even originally named Thunderbird in tribute.
  • Scarily Competent Tracker: It comes from his youth. Only got better once he picked up his Super Senses.
  • Superpower Lottery: Won it big:
    • Super Strength: Once fought directly with Juggernaut, managing to stand up and not give ground for several minutes.
    • Super Speed: Not at the "telescoping time" level, but Warpath can run down vehicles on the road.
    • Super Senses: Implied to be above the level of ferals. Mimic, who has copied ferals before, tried to copy Warpath's powers and was overwhelmed by sheer sensory input. May also extend to a sixth sense of sorts, as when he was on X-Force, Warpath had a tendency to wander off during fights he wasn't needed for and find things.
    • Super Reflexes: Has been shown evading weapons fire.
    • Superhuman Flexibility and Agility: Despite being seven feet and 350 pounds, Warpath has been described as moving like an Olympic gymnast.
    • Healing Factor: Though not as strong as usual for this trope, it's there.
    • Flight: Depending on the Writer.
    • Magical Native American: Ghost Rider unlocked shamanistic powers within Warpath so they could fight the Demon Bear and win. He used these powers to stop Selene in the Necrosis storyline. These powers seemed to be temporary, but alternate universe versions of Warpath have shown him having mystical powers as well, implying that his mutation has the potential for it.
  • Token Evil Teammate / Token Good Teammate: When part of the X-Men, Warpath is one of the ones more willing to use lethal force, but he was the least willing among those selected for Wolverine's X-Force.
  • The Worf Effect: Feral and Shatterstar both got one over on Warpath in their introductions during the original X-Force series. Neither of these two are remotely in Warpath's league.





     Weapon XIII / Fantomex 

Weapon XIII/Fantomex

  • Anti-Hero: Fantomex is ultimately a good guy, but he can be horrifyingly ruthless on occasion.
  • Back from the Dead: Dies towards the end of his run in X-Force, but later gets resurrected through cloning. Each brain of his gets a different body.
  • Badass Longcoat: And a Spy Catsuit.
  • Bad Future: It's implied that in the averted "Here Comes Tomorrow" future, he became Sublime's lieutenant Apollyon.
  • Captain Ersatz: Diabolik and Fantômas. He even has Diabolik's Spy Catsuit and E.V.A. is named after Diabolik's girlfriend Eva Kant. His name is an obvious play on Fantomas, and like the Mexican comicbook Fantômas, he never removes his mask.
  • Captain Ethnic: While it eventually turned out that he was faking it, Fantomex appeared to be a suave, deceptive French superthief. This has led to him derogatively being called "Faux-Frenchie" on a couple of occasions.
  • Dual Wielding: Handguns.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: He does sincerely love his mother, or at least his mother figure. Tragically, she later gets murdered not long after he offs the child version of Apocalypse.
  • Future Badass: E.V.A. lives on after he dies, apparently, and becomes a vital member of the X-Men with a fully realized personality.
  • Gentleman Thief: His persona is that of a master thief with a suave sense of humour. When he gets ruthless however, he's capable of dropping the act.
  • Grand Theft Me: He can control E.V.A.'s actions and see from her point of view with concentration.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Dies saving Betsy. He later gets resurrected, albeit with each of his three brains in a different body.
  • Master of Illusion: Thanks to E.V.A.
  • My Greatest Second Chance: Partially out of remorse and partly because he wonders if the rest of the team were right, Fantomex actually creates a clone of Kid!Apocalypse to see if someone with his power could grow up to be a good person, rather than a dictator bent on cleansing the world of humanity.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: He feels no pain due to having a remotely-stored nervous system; while he can be hurt, it doesn't deter him.
  • Nominal Hero: Apart from the time Sabretooth was brainwashed into joining, he's without question the downright most awful person to have ever been an X-Man. For instance, he once killed hundreds of brainwashing victims to take out the guy doing the brainwashing, figuring restoring them one by one would take too long. Even his X-Force teammates are frequently creeped out by his cold-blooded pragmatism.
  • Pet the Dog:
  • Psychic Link: With his autonomous nervous system E.V.A.
  • Rule of Cool: The entire Fantomex thing? Basically entirely done because he thinks French guys are cool (and maybe because he first surfaced in Paris).
  • Split Personality: Fantomex has three different brains, likely a hold-over from his status as Weapon XIII. It's said this is why he could act as a hero, and then murder a child. Captain Britain, who hated his guts before, even said it was a testament to his character that he was able to function at all with his different personalities. They are described by Shadow King as noble, a trouble-maker, and a vile place. In the last issue, each brain gets a separate body. One identical to the old body, another with a mostly-black suit, described as not very nice, and a final, female body, with a white suit, who claims to be "the nicest".
  • Voluntary Shape Shifting: E.V.A. can change shape at will.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Fantomex points out how the Captain Britain Corps find the shooting of one kid "evil", regardless of the work he's done to raise Genesis as a savior. Yet, they're perfectly OK with skinning a man alive and erasing another from existence.
  • Would Hurt a Child: If we're getting specific, Would Shoot A Child In The Head. And YMMV whether he does or does not cross the Moral Event Horizon in doing so.

Barnell Bohusk/Beak

     Angel Salvatore 

Angel Salvatore

  • Anti-Hero: Type I
  • Brought Down to Normal: By the Decimation.
  • Cute Monster Girl: Fly wings, and acid spit.
    • Logan seems to disagree, calling her ugly repeatedly during their first meeting. Then again, he was probably talking about her attitude more than her looks. That and the whole acid-vomit thing...
  • One Steve Limit: Introduced when Warren Worthington was called Archangel and had been for years. Goes by Tempest now that Warren is going by Angel when he's not blue-skinned and metal-winged.
  • Prank Date: That's how her relationship with Beak started. The eventual result was an unexpected pregnancy, of all things, which due to her fly-like biology caused her to give birth to five babies in just a few days.
  • Squick: Being based on a fly, the acid's true purpose was to partially digest her food into a slime that would then be eaten. It's treated as gross in-universe as it sounds.
  • Theme Twin Naming: The kids are named after the Jackson Five.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: See above. She genuinely does love Beak and they have lived as close to Happily Ever After as you can in comics.



  • Becoming the Mask: While he was really Magneto (though not exactly), it's hard to argue that he didn't get absorbed in the identity and show genuine compassion to his students.
    • With the retcon, he still falls under it, having believed himself to be the real Erik.
  • Evil Twin: It was also later revealed that he had a good twin brother with the same powers and the personality he pretended to have. Uh huh.
  • Identical Stranger: An Author's Saving Throw eventually revealed that Xorn was really really a guy who happened to look just like Magneto.
  • Man in the Iron Mask: Absolutely necessary, otherwise his head, which is a star, would basically kill everything around him. Not really. That's just an excuse for why he can't be scanned with telepathy or any of their instruments; actually the helmet blocking such things. He mocks the team for believing the star-for-a-brain thing.
  • Power Incontinence
  • The Medic: Had some ill-defined healing abilities, and they often didn't work, or he had a zen-sounding reason to not do it. That's because he healed Xavier by fixing his spine using his magnetic powers on the nano-sentinels. He couldn't heal most of the people he was asked to.

     Tyrone Johnson / Cloak 

Tyrone Johnson/Cloak

  • Anti-Hero: Type III-IV
  • Badass Cape
  • Casting a Shadow
  • Horror Hunger: Cloak has this for a vaguely defined kind of human Life Energy, represented as light. It's generally not an issue because his partner Dagger naturally generates an excess of the stuff, but on one occasion when she'd abandoned him he came near to killing several innocent people.
  • Living Shadow
  • Teleporters and Transporters: Cloak can teleport via the "Darkforce Dimension," which his cloak is a portal to. He can take passengers, but it's a pretty traumatizing ride if his partner Dagger isn't around to ameliorate the effects.
