* ChildSoldiers: In ''First Class'', Charles wants to avoid turning their young recruits (who are roughly in their mid to late teens) into this, but Erik points out that if they are going to stop Shaw, they need their own army. This comes up again in ''Apocalypse'' -- the roster is made of teenagers (Scott, Kurt, and Jean). Hank and Raven mention that Charles wants to avoid this, but even he admits to Raven in a [[invoked]]DeletedScene that with the world that they live in and how powerful they are (especially in Jeans case), they need to be trained to defend both themselves and others Mutants.

They arenít as outgoing as the comic book counterparts and usually keep a low profile considering mutants tendency to blamed for anything bad happening surrounding them not matter the circumstances.
