1[[foldercontrol]] ²²!!Main Cast²²[[folder: Wind Dancer/Sophia Mantenga-Barret]]²[[quoteright:341:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1904426_looking.jpg]] ²²Wind Dancer has the mutant ability to manipulate air molecules. She could use this power to fly, levitate others, create powerful wind blasts or protective shields.²----²²* BlowYouAway / RazorWind: She can create sharp forces of wind that can cut through material and create isolated whirlwinds or directed blasts of high pressure air control and manipulate the movement of air. ²* BreakTheCutie: Her mother was killed in a riot, and despite her relative's attempts to keep it from her, she overheard due to her powers. She was then sent to live with her rich {{Jerkass}} of a father, who treated her like garbage, she was ignored and left out at the expensive school she was sent to, and eventually decided to trash one of her father's stores to get his attention. Instead she got arrested, and he refused to pay bail. Mercifully, Dani Moonstar came along. And then M-Day happened, she lost her powers and was immediately turfed out of the mansion.²* BroughtDownToNormal: Lost her powers after M-Day.²* {{Flight}}: Sofia could create powerful wind currents to enable flight.²* MoralityPet: Actively tried to make Hellion a better person. The results were mixed.²* TheLeader: Co-leading with David, shows signs of Type III and Type II²* NiceGal: Incredibly sweet and friendly.²* ParentalNeglect: Her father was an utter dick who barely acknowledged she was there, and treated her like crap. He couldn't sign the parental release forms quick enough.²* PutOnABus [[spoiler:But hers didn't explode.]] After losing her powers in M-Day, she left the school and has been dropped from the X-Men franchise. She briefly worked with the New Warriors until their dissolution, but has since been in ComicBookLimbo.²* SpockSpeak: On account of English not being her first language, she tends to speak far more formally than anyone else.²* SpoiledSweet²* SuperSenses: Sofia could amplify small vibrations in the air, which allowed her to hear faraway conversations.²[[/folder]]²²²[[folder: Prodigy/David Alleyne]]²[[quoteright:329:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prodigy_17.png]] ²²David had a power to unconsciously copy the knowledge of every person around him for limited amount of time. He lost his abilities during [[ComicBook/HouseOfM M-Day]] but would stay at Xavier's and serve as New X-Men's tactician. Later he regained all knowledge he already copied before losing his powers, and become the head of the X-Men's youth division after Schism. During Comicbook/MarvelNOW he joined the ComicBook/YoungAvengers - you should also see his entry on that team's character page to see what he's up to lately. ²----²* BeatStillMyHeart: Done to him by Belasco. [[spoiler:He got better]]²* BlessedWithSuck: He absorbed the knowledge of anyone who was nearby. Including, as he reveals, things like what they do during sex.²* BrainySpecs[=/=]CoolShades: Prodigy wears a pair of custom-built Cyber Shades that function as a wireless broadband computer network. ²* BroughtDownToNormal: For a while. Prodigy lost his powers after Decimation, but to an extent, regained them after the Stepford Cuckoos restored his previous memories and skills. ²* CombatClairvoyance: Prodigy is able to predict physical attacks directed at him, allowing him to easily avoid or counter them.²* DiscardAndDraw: Discard his powers, draw all combined benefits they ever gave him before.²* DrunkWithPower: His deep fear is what would happen if his powers had no restraint.²* FutureMeScaresMe: The temporal block that made him lose all copied knowledge after some time was apparently subconscious, as he was afraid having all the combined knowledge without having to earn it would turn him into a despot.²* HeartbrokenBadass: He TookALevelInBadass around the same time [[spoiler: Noriko broke his heart, trying to force him out of the team]].²* IKnowKungFu: Absorbed special forces training from Wolverine.²* TheLeader: Prodigy is a natural leader and strategist. His natural leadership skills have been enhanced through contact with various X-Men and his time as co-leader of the New Mutant Squadron.²* TheSmartGuy²* TeenGenius: Prodigy is naturally intelligent. He completed college level courses while in high school, operates complicated technology, pilots the Blackbird, and built the Danger Cave, all without using his powers.²* TookALevelInBadass: Once he regained all copied knowledge, he demonstrated it by breaking [[spoiler: Jullian's]] ribs with Israeli martial arts he learned from Shadowcat and Wolverine.²* TookALevelInJerkass: After Decimation, and the destruction of his relationship with Surge, combined with getting all the knowledge beamed into his head, he becomes increasingly nasty and aloof.²* WhatTheHellHero: Gives one to Josh after [[spoiler: his romance with Rahne becomes public knowledge, breaking Laurie's heart]] and to Noriko after [[spoiler: she kisses Julian in front of him, hoping it will make him quit the team]].²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Surge/Noriko Ashida]]²[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/f6b52d3386278271f26b2e8c8cd69e65.jpg]] ²²Surge is a young Japanese mutant with electricity-based powers, and presently requires gauntlet-like regulators to fully control her powers. ²----²²* AbusiveParents: Her father caused her to run away from home and then decided that [[IHaveNoSon for him she no longer exists]].²* BareYourMidriff: Her New Mutants uniform and a lot of civilian clothes.²* BigBrotherInstinct: First becomes protective of a kid who reminds her of her brother, then, as team leader, starts applying this to all of her teammates.²* TheBigGuy: In ''New Mutants'', having the most offensive power and aggressive personality.²* BlessedWithSuck: She needs special equipment (her gauntlets) to control and regulate the flow of electricity to and from her body. Without it, the electricity overloads her brain and prevents her from controlling it fully.²* BreakHisHeartToSaveHim: Tries this on David by [[spoiler: kissing Julian in front of him, hoping it would make him quit the team]]. It doesn't work, and just makes her even more miserable.²* CallingTheOldManOut: Calls out Charles Xavier on the fact that, when his students were dying and his school was attacked time after time, he was nowhere to be found.²-->''There's nothing you can teach us, "Prof".... We already know how to die.''²* FatalFlaw: Pretty much all her interpersonal conflicts boil down to the fact that Noriko- although not intentionally malicious- does not like anything outside her immediate experience. This is why she picks fights with [[ValuesDissonance Dust]] and [[CreepyGood X-23]], [[spoiler:and why she reacts badly to David's injury]]. Panic is never far behind confusion, for her.²* HotBlooded: Tends to be very sharp with people, often laying out all her frustration at them as strongly as possible.²* {{Hypocrite}}: She lays into David for being judgmental against Josh, when he's only doing so over his past involvement with the Reavers, while she condescends and snarks to Sooraya for "holding women back" because she chooses to wear a niqab.²* InSpiteOfANail: In ComicBook/HouseOfM, despite all the drastic changes to reality, she and David are still together.²* ItsAllMyFault: As a leader she has tendency to blame herself for all the bad things that happens to her teammates, even if she had no way of stopping them.²* TheLeader: For New X-Men. Combines Type II and III.²* MsFanservice: She has always liked more skimpy clothes, but some artists, especially Humberto Ramos, really like to draw her in revealing outfits that also have tendency to suffer ClothingDamage.²* MostCommonSuperpower: DependingOnTheArtist -- if it's Ramos, she's quite busty.²* NotSoDifferent: Noriko and Julian quickly come to hate each other's guts, but once she becomes team leader, she shows a lot of the same qualities that make him a good leader.²* OddFriendship: One of the ''X-Factor'' comics implied she became friends with Boom Boom.²* PowerIncontinence: Constantly absorbs ambient static electricity until she violently discharges it.²* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Goes on one against the Purifers in ''Messiah Complex''²* StrawFeminist: To the extent that she also came off as a bit of a bigoted JerkAss. She chewed out her Muslim roommate Dust over her decision to wear a niqab, going so far as to call her an embarrassment to women everywhere. ²* SuperSpeed: When carrying a large enough charge she can move super fast.²* YouAreInCommandNow: After the formation of New X-Men.²* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Surge has blue hair, but it's just dye: it came in a bottle labeled "electric blue".²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Elixir/Josh Foley]]²[[quoteright:140:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/8e2250b7a8a8ee75e5c653c158052028.jpg]] ²²A former Reaver with gold skin and a healing touch. Elixir was one of the students at Xavier Institute and is known for his ability of biological manipulation which allows him to both restore life or take it on a whim, and is capable of incredible feats being one of the few active and confirmed Omega-level mutants.²----²²* BackForTheDead: [[spoiler: It's starting to become a RunningGag. He disappears after ''Necrosha'', only to turn up and apparently get killed by Siphon in ''The Logan Legacy''. Then after ''Secret Wars'' he resurfaces again in ''Uncanny X-Men'', and is murdered by the Dark Riders in the ''very same issue''. True to form, he resurrects ''again'' in the 2016 ''Uncanny X-Men'' annual.]]²* {{Biomanipulation}}: His power set as an Omega level healer. He usually uses it for HealingHands, but can be downright lethal as well.²* ChickMagnet: Had been with Laurie, Rahne and Loa. Even with all the Stepford Cuckoos. At the same time.²* CompleteImmortality: His powers have apparently evolved to the point where he ''can't'' die. Despite having been killed by both Siphon and the Dark Riders, his powers still self-resurrect him.²* DeathIsCheap: Because of the nature of his powers Josh really ''can't'' stay dead. Even when he was presumably ''drained of them entirely'' by Siphon he still manages to return.²* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler: Unceremoniously gunned down by the Dark Riders.]]²* FaceHeelTurn: As of ''ComicBook/XMenBlue'', he's a member of [[spoiler: Magneto's new Brotherhood of Mutants.]]²* HealingHands: His power is to manipulate the organic material on a genetic level which he uses to mainly heal wounds. This ability requires him to have direct contact with those he wishes to heal. With a greater understanding of the inner workings of the human body, he has demonstrated the ability to heal or even re-grow tissues that have been damaged beyond repair or removed completely. ²* JerkAss: He actually started off as big of a dick as Julian. When first introduced he was bigoted against mutants, and was even in the process of being recruited into the Reavers by Donald Pierce when his powers manifested the first time. He had a crush on Laurie, but when she refused to let herself reciprocate, he instead started hooking up with Rahne — who was one of his teachers at the time — in large part to make her jealous.²* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Despite his treatment of others in the past, he's shown to be very protective of others. Part of his experimentation with his powers stems from not wanting more of his friends to die.²* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: How rest of his team, especially David, sees him, once his affair with Rahne comes to light.²* LikesOlderWomen: Not that much older - his relationship with Rahne wouldn't be anything out of ordinary (he was 16, she was 19) if she also wasn't his teacher.²* LoveTriangle: [[TriangRelations Type IV]] with him, Laurie and Kevin and at the same time Type 7 with him, Laurie and Rahne.²** BettyAndVeronica: Has to choose between shy, delicate Laurie and energetic but also older Rahne.²** LoveDodecahedron: He has to choose between Rahne and Laurie, who also might have feelings for Kevin, who himself is object of Cessily's feelings.²* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: On the receiving end of one from his former friends when they found out he was a Mutant. In [[BystanderSyndrome front of his family]], no less.²* NotSoDifferent: He and Kevin have more in common than each would like to admit. It's best displayed in ''House of M'', when they are good friends... as [[ThoseTwoBadGuys a pair of amoral]] [[TortureTechnician Torture Technicians]].²* PutOnABus: Vanished after the Necrosha arc of ''X-Force''. Which was just before ''Second Coming'', when his powers would ''really'' have been handy for a lot of X-Men.²** TheBusCameBack: Resurfaces as a prisoner of Shogun in ''The Death of Wolverine: The Logan Legacy'', apparently permanently stuck in his black-skinned "kill" form. He was attacked by Siphon and his fate was left ambiguous, though WordOfGod explicitly refused to confirm whether or not he was killed, while artist Peter Nguyen stated that the notes he left for the colorist was that Elixir was supposed to be turning gold again throughout the attack. He's therefore put back on the bus again until the end of ''Comicbook/AllNewXMen'', when it's revealed he's alive and well and has been living on Utopia with a collection of other mutants just wanting to be left alone, before being convinced to join the X-Men at the New Xavier School.²* ReedRichardsIsUseless: He can grow back people's hearts whole cloth, and yet somehow whenever his powers would be useful, he tends to be missing for no good reason.²* SanitySlippage: Laurie's death, [[spoiler: his ''own'' deaths]], and the sheer hell he and his peers have been through since M-Day have left Josh a bit unstable.²* TouchOfDeath: Beyond healing, he can aso inflict damage and pain onto his foes in a similar fashion (causing his skin to become coal-black).²* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: As Josh's power grows his mental and emotional stability weakens. By the ''Uncanny X-Men Vol. 4'' annual he's capable of resurrecting the dead on a massive scale. Magneto and M muse that he may be able to revive ''all sixteen million dead mutants on Genosha''. ''At the same time.'' However even his efforts curing a small number of mutants from the M-Pox led to his losing control and nearly draining the life of the human doctors and nurses tending them. Under Xorn's tutelage, he eventually learns how to control it better.²* YouAreWhatYouHate: Started off as a goon for Donald Pierce. Even once he found out he was Mutant, it took a while for him to get over his racism.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Wallflower/Laurie Collins]]²[[quoteright:204:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/laurie_collins_earth_616_0004.jpg]] ²²Laurie Collins is a mutant with pheromone-based abilities, which allow her to influence others, whether intentionally or not. Her powers manifested when she was a teenager, causing everyone in the general area to be instantly smitten with her. Unable to comprehend what was happening, she withdrew herself from public life. A shy, reclusive girl by nature, she joins Xavier's school to try and better control her abilities, and while there strikes up a relationship with Elixir.²----²²* BoomHeadshot: Her death.²* ChildByRape: Her father had the same emotion-manipulating powers as her and used them to seduce her mom.²* DroppedABridgeOnHer: [[spoiler:Shoot by a sniper out of nowhere.]]²* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: Oh, pheromones, what a ridiculous power, right? As ''House of M'' shows, if Lauria weren't so nice, she'd be an absolute terror, just like her old man. Hard to fight someone who can make you too afraid to move, or suddenly enraged with your best friend.²* LoveIsInTheAir²* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: Apparently, in the original chain of events she single-handedly slaughtered all Stryker's men, during their attack on school. [[spoiler: Which is why he sent a sniper to kill her days earlier.]]²* PowerIncontinence: She initially has no real control over her powers, which made rooming with her pretty difficult, since she'd get nervous and that would make her powers flare up, and things would get worse from there. It's not until Wind Dancer comes along that she gets a roommate she doesn't have to worry about, since Sofia can just use her powers to prevent the pheromones getting near her. [[spoiler:She never quite manages to get her powers fully under control.]]²* ShrinkingViolet²* StuffedIntoTheFridge: [[spoiler:Her death serves no purpose but to push Josh into really dark place.]]²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Icarus/Jay Guthrie]]²[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/icarus00.jpg]] ²²The winged younger brother of Sam and Paige Guthrie.²----²²* CharmPerson: Initially, he seemed powerless, but it was revealed he actually had the mutant power of a compelling singing voice. The Chuck Austen gave him wings as well.²* {{Flight}}: Icarus could fly by means of his natural wings. ²* GoodIsDumb: [[spoiler: Stryker played him like a fiddle]].²* HealingFactor: Hee regenerated and healed hundreds of times faster than a normal human. It was later revealed that his healing powers came from his wings.²* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Honestly trusted William Stryker, and thought [[spoiler:he would help the former mutant students]].²* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Killed by William Stryker]].²* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:Told Stryker about the bus full of students leaving the mansion, giving him the opportunity to kill them. He also indirectly provoked the Nimrod Stryker was using into reactivating itself, simply by being present.]]²* SixthRanger: To the New Mutants.²** SixthRangerTraitor: Originally a member of Hellions, but switched teams.²* StuffedIntoTheFridge: A rare male example.²* TokenGoodTeammate: He was too nice for the Hellions, which is why he got transferred over.²* TooDumbToLive: Again, trusted William Stryker. The crazed fundamentalist who had previously tried to kill the X-Men, had led lynch mobs and murdered his own wife and child.²* WingedHumanoid²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Hellion/Julian Keller]]²[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/22ca0a3fdb8126376bec66c004ab83ab.jpg]] ²²A telekinetic mutant and leader of Emma Frost's Hellions. Initially a jerk and a showoff, after M-Day de-powered many of his friends, and William Stryker murdered many of his others, he quickly matured into a passionate but troubled leader. Has an on-again-off-again relationship with ComicBook/{{X-23}}.²----²²* AesopAmnesia: Later writers don't seem to be aware that Julian went through major character development during the ''New X-Men'' era, because nearly every book he's in has him learn not to be such a jerk to people. ²* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Subverted, two of his most serious [[LoveInterest love interests]] (Sophia and X-23) seem to be falling for his nicer side -- it's his bad boy qualities that are pushing them away.²* AmazonChaser: Of the three women he's been shown pursuing in the books — Wind Dancer, X-23, and Shark-Girl — two of them had a violent side and could break him in half. He also once hit on Armor, and got his nose broken for his trouble (in fact, he asked her out ''after'' she broke his nose). Hellion even lampshades it himself in ''Spider-Man and the X-Men'' that he has a thing for savage warrior babes.²* AnArmAndALeg: Lost both forearms to a Nimrod attack during ''Second Coming''. He now has metal hands that he controls via his [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]].²* AngerBornOfWorry: Upon finding Laura (after she left the Institute with no warning) he is pretty upset with her. This is because his post M-Day trauma made him paranoid about losing people.²* BrokenPedestal: Emma Frost was pretty much his idol. Since M-Day she gave him many reasons to change his mind about her.²* ButtMonkey: His parents disinherit him for an incident which he didn't even start (and generally had a low opinion of him even ''before'' he manifested his powers). He loses his girlfriend shortly after M-Day (his own fault), and many of his friends are killed during Stryker's attacks, including one of his best friends and teammate. He does the right thing when Emma Frost tries to rig a contest to take out X-23, and just gets punished for his trouble. He's been gutted by Deathstrike, the Leper Queen turned him into a walking bomb with the Legacy Virus, Nimrods destroyed his hands (which have somehow never been healed) while helping defend San Francisco from Bastion. He's punished for doing the only thing he could to stop Karima — ''at her own request no less'' — and treated like a monster by ''every'' senior X-Men despite them ''all'' having done far, ''far'' worse. Then his ''second'' girlfriend rebuffs him when he reaches out to her for help coping with what he's going through, and she coldly ''lies to his face'' about not caring about him anymore to break it off. ''Then'' he gets dumped into Spidey's remedial class because he's viewed as untrustworthy and likely to undergo a FaceHeelTurn. Most recently, he's revealed as one of the mutants who has somehow been overlooked by [[Comicbook/ExtraordinaryXMen Storm and her team sheltering in Limbo]], infected with the M-Pox, and nearly gets himself killed when he decides to [[TakingYouWithMe single-handedly attack Attilan]] reasoning he's dying anyway (fortunately Synapse manages to shut down his powers and saves his life). And in one alternate future, he's killed fighting in a world war sparked by Doctor Doom. Pretty much any time he turns up, you can pretty much expect ''something'' bad to happen to him.²* ChickMagnet: Quite a ladies man. He once took all three of the Cuckoos to a dance (though he actually did it to make Wind Dancer jealous), and they were hanging all over him the whole time.²* DatingCatwoman: Plays the role of Catwoman to Sophia.²* DependingOnTheArtist: Ever since he was crippled during ''Second Coming''. His arms can end at his wrists, elbows, and anywhere in-between. The same happens with the look of his prostheses, and whether or not they're put directly onto his arms, or if he levitates them with his telekinesis.²** His normally green telekinetic aura is ''pink'' for no explainable reason in ''Spider-Man and the X-Men''.²** On more than one occasion artists have even forgotten that he has metal hands. There was even an article on Bleeding Cool about it. ²* DependingOnTheWriter: How much of him is Jerk and how much is Heart of Gold varies heavily on who is writing him. He developed substantially and his positive traits are most consistently brought out under Kyle and Yost. However later writers tend to keep him much more firmly in JerkAss territory, with a few exceptions.²* DesignatedVillain: Becomes this for a stretch after killing Karima. ''Everyone'' in the books treats it like he just jumped across the MoralEventHorizon, that killing her was a horrific crime and a sign that he's [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope teetering at the edge of the Slipper Slope]], and he's on his way to a FaceHeelTurn. However readers are quick to point out that A) Karima was on the verge of killing everyone on Utopia, B) Hellion was the only one left who was even in the ''position'' to stop her, and C) his actions were taken at ''Karima's own request'' because she was about to lose control of her programming and wipe everyone out. Yet he still gets locked up by Cyclops and shipped off to the Jean Grey school to be imprisoned. Between the fact that a central argument of Schism was Cyclops training kids to do ''exactly what Hellion did'', and the fact that Wolverine himself has done far, ''far'' worse, they both just come across as ''tremendous'' hypocrites.²* EvenEvilHasStandards: Less "evil" more "assholes." Julian initially gets along quite well with Elixir when he first comes to the school. But then he finds out that Elixir was a Reaver before his powers manifested...²* FaceHeelTurn: Tries to make one after M-Day leaves his team (temporarily) disassembled. In response, Magneto tells him that he's only doing this to hurt them, and that he won't accept such an unreliable soldier. However with everything he's been through, it's amazing he ''hasn't'' turned Heel.²* FatalFlaw: He is ruled by emotion, and often makes bad choices because of it.²* FreudianTrio: Ego to Cessily's Superego and Santo's Id.²* HandicappedBadass: Losing his hands didn't affect his telekinetic powers at all. In fact, his lack of hands and increased use of telekinesis to make up for it may have actually made him stronger.²* HasAType: Although his first romantic interest was the comparatively mild-mannered Wind Dancer, as noted under AmazonChaser Julian has developed a tendency to be attracted to strong and violent women, notably X-23 and Shark-Girl.²* HeroicBSOD: He didn't handle killing Karima when she attacked Utopia well, even though he was the only one in a position to stop her. That everyone treats him like he was an out of control monster, with Wolverine locking him up in his room at the Jean Grey School, only made it worse.²* HeroicRROD: Emma Frost unlocked his full telekinetic powers, he flew all the way from Dallas to the mansion (smashing through one of the O*N*E sentinels on the way in), and passed out for several days afterward.²* HotBlooded: Not as much as Santo or Noriko, but still.²* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: By Deathstrike, though he eventually recovers.²* {{Jerkass}}: He's arrogant and superior, and often bullies those who aren't part of his circle of friends. This in part informs his rivalry with the New Mutants in general, and David and Noriko in particular. It begins getting downplayed in the aftermath of M-Day.²* JerkassHasAPoint: Hellion is very blunt in his beliefs that the X-Men have utterly failed him and his peers. However considering almost his entire generation lost their powers on M-Day, and the constant failures of the X-Men to prevent his friends from getting killed (IE the bus attack and Stryker's assault on the school), it's also hard to fault him for the belief.²* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: While he's often a dick, he ''does'' genuinely care for those he allows into his social sphere. He also steadfastly stands up for mutants and mutant rights; his early friendship with Elixir was only soured because he learned Elixir used to be a member of the Reavers before his powers manifested, and although like the others he was leery of Wither, he was furious when the FBI tried to imprison him, and stood up for him when the rest of the school started to shun him in the process.²* TheLeader: To the Hellions, combines Type III and IV.²* LeaderWannabe: For some time on the New X-Men he would refuse to follow Surge and order his teammates from Hellions, until he and Noriko managed to put their differences behind them.²* LikeBrotherAndSister: Seems to be the case with him and Mercury.²* MoralityChain: For X-23 when they [[spoiler:went to save Mercury]]. And when the New X-Men went after the Purifiers, he was the only one to stop Surge from killing them.²* NotSoDifferent: He and Surge have more in common than they would like to admit.²* OppositesAttract: Played with. He likes X-23 partly because she understands the world in a way he doesn't. However, their differing viewpoints make communication difficult.²* OutOfFocus: Nowadays, he attends the [[ComicBook/WolverineAndTheXMen Jean Grey School for Higher Learning]], though he doesn't get much focus. And when he ''does'' appear, [[TheChewToy there's a good bet he's going to get his ass kicked by the end of it]].²* ParentalAbandonment: First his parents ship him off to the Xavier school after they get tired of dealing with his powers, then they disinherit him over an altercation that he didn't even start. Finally, they up and move the family without even telling him.²* PowerIncontinence: After getting his power upgrade, he loses the fine control over his powers. Even trying something as simple as lifting a paper-clip makes him more liable to smash everything around him. He does eventually get over this.²* QuicklyDemotedLeader: After the formation of the New X-Men, Emma Frost demotes him and puts Surge in charge, as a punishment for [[spoiler: him refusing her order to eliminate X-23 from competition for a place on the team]]²* ShipperOnDeck: Becomes one for Cessily and Kevin.²* ShipSinking: Both with Sophia and with X-23. Although the "Old Woman Laura" arc of ''Comicbook/AllNewWolverine'' suggests the latter might not have gone down completely.²* SmugSuper: At first, on account of being Emma Frost's star pupil. He does eventually get over most of this.²* TheseHandsHaveKilled: When Karima attacks Utopia, Hellion is the only one in a position to fight back, and is left with no choice but to kill her. Karima even ''begs'' him to in order to stop her Sentinel programming before she kills everyone else. It sends him into a HeroicBSOD (having previously been firm in his stance that X-Men don't kill), and it's heavily implied during his second appearance in the X-23 solo that he's reaching out to her for help coping with his actions (she rebuffs him). It's ''not'' helped that everyone (even [[{{Hypocrite}} Gambit and Wolverine]]) is treating him like an out-of-control monster for doing it. There's also the fact that Karima ''didn't actually die'', he just knocked her into a coma, though it did look like she was brain dead. And she was later healed anyway.²* TwoGuysAndAGirl: With Mercury and Rockslide.²* TheUnfavorite: It's indicated that even ''before'' his powers manifested he was this, with his parents showing favoritism towards his older brother.²* WillTheyOrWontThey: First with Sophia and then with X-23. [[spoiler: In both cases the answer is no]]. [[spoiler: Although In the final arc of All New Wolverine (set in an Utopian future) it is revealed that at some time prior Laura and Julian patched things up and became a couple. Laura even comments that the two had a lot of good years together until Julian died in battle fighting Dr. Doom's horde of villains]]. ²* TheWoobie: While the Academy X/New X-Men kids could constitute an entire ''team'' of Woobies, Hellion stands out with all the hell he's been through.²** IronWoobie: Despite all this, he's steadfastly loyal to his friends, and ''will'' keep fighting however he can to help and protect his them and his species.²** JerkassWoobie: Just look at ButtMonkey above. If ''anyone'' has earned the right to be an angry jackass, it's Hellion.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Mercury/Cessily Kincaid]]²[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px_mercuryprofile.jpg]] ²²A girl whose skin is made from malleable non-toxic metal.²----²* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Has a one-sided crush on Wither.²%%* BareYourMidriff²* BiTheWay: She is in a relationship with Bling.²* BodyHorror: When her powers first activated, she collapsed into a writhing puddle on her bathroom floor.²* BrokenPedestal: Emma Frost is one to her.²* BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler:After getting kidnapped and tortured by the Facility.]]²* CallingTheOldManOut: Calls out Emma Frost for not bringing Wither back to the school, pushing away Julian and trying to make X-23 quit the team.²* CoolBigSis: Plays this role to Santo.²* FreudianTrio: Superego to Julian's Ego and Santo's Id.²* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Like all the Hellions, she's got a good side. Notably, she's one of the few to try and be nice to X-23.²* LikeBrotherAndSister: Seems to be the case between her and Julian. Later the same seems to be true for her and Santo.²* MoralityPet: The best person to make Julian's nicer side resurface.²* NoSell: Magic doesn't work on her liquid form. And since she's made of metal, Wither's touch doesn't have any effect. She's also immune to Laurie's pheromone powers, which resulted in them previously being made roommates (which didn't work so well).²* TwoGuysAndAGirl: With Hellion and Rockslide.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Rockslide/Santo Vaccarro]]²[[quoteright:236:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/8fbf96ffc99b63e63a28da06b0ac0237.jpg]] ²²Rockslide is a student at the Xavier Institute and a member of the Young X-Men.²----²²* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: It was shown that Rockslide can also survive in space without a spacesuit and a breathing apparatus.²* TheBully: Santo frequently straddles the line between this and TheGadfly. ''Usually'' he means it all in fun because he just thinks that's how friends act, but sometimes such as when X-23 first comes to school, he can genuinely be mean.²* CloudCuckoolander: Not exactly being the sharpest knife in the drawer, he certainly has his moments of this.²* DetachmentCombat: In his original body he was able to fire off limbs and recall them.²* DiscardAndDraw: After rebuilding his body from nearby stones, Blindfold says he lost the ability to fire off his limbs. Now he's capable of detonating himself instead and building a new body out of surrounding stone, gaining its properties. When he first did this in Limbo, his body was made of volcanic rock that could project fire and was resistant to magic.²* DishingOutDirt: He is made of rocks and can control his separated body parts. ²* DumbMuscle: Santo ''literally'' has rocks in his head.²* FreudianTrio: Id to Cessily's Superego and Julian's Ego.²* TheGadfly: He ''loves'' to troll his friends. Although he can also be a bully, he's never really malicious about it, he just thinks that's how friends act (like [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments roasting marshmallows over Match's head]]).²* GoodThingYouCanHeal: His power means he can blow himself up, and reform from whatever material is around him. He was naturally surprised to learn this.²* HiddenDepths: Is fond of detective stories, including the works of Agatha Christie.²* HotBlooded²* ILetGwenStacyDie: When [[spoiler:forty students, including Tag, were killed, Rockslide suffered HeroicBSOD and couldn't do anything. After Brian's funeral he is seen punching the ground and yelling ''I'm sorry Brian! I'm sorry!'']]²* {{Jerkass}}: When he was first introduced he was a bully and crude.²* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: After the death of several of his friends, he became slightly more mature but still has his moments. He threatens to quit the team if they won't let Anole and Pixie join. He's also respectful towards Dust's beliefs, panicking when she shows up mid-fight not wearing her veil.²* LargeHam²* LeeroyJenkins²* LikesOlderWomen: Not that much older, but it's implied he has crush on Jubilee. He's also hit on Carol Danvers.²* MyGreatestFailure [[spoiler:That he couldn't save Brian]].²* SuperStrength: Rockslide possesses superhuman strength sufficient to lift about 75 tons without any effort. ²* ThoseTwoGuys: Develops into this with Anole, and the two are frequently paired up in later stories.²* TwoGuysAndAGirl: With Mercury and Hellion.²* VitriolicBestBuds: With ''everybody''. Just ''try'' to make a drinking game over how many times one of his friends says, "I hate you, Santo."

When Kingmaker grants the rest of the team their wishes, he only wants to make sure they stay together, so he won't be alone again.²* LetsGetDangerous: In ''House of M'' he uses his powers on Sean Garrison, making him want to run away from ''himself''. Garrison then sees his reflection in the mirror and jumps through the window.²* TheSmartGuy: In the Hellions.²** TheEvilGenius: When they played an antagonistic role to the New Mutants.²* [[spoiler: StuffedIntoTheFridge]]: A rare male example.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Dust/Sooraya Qadir]]²[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px_dustprofile.jpg]] ²²An Afghan mutant with the ability to turn into a living dust storm. Originally introduced in Comicbook/{{New Xmen}}, she joined the team after M-Day. She is identified by her Niqab, which she wears instead of the traditional X-Men uniform. ²----²²* BewareTheNiceOnes: Dust is fully capable of tearing people apart with her powers. Fortunately, as a devout Muslim, she abhors violence.²** This is important in ''[[ComicBook/Champions2019 Champions]]'' #5. Cyclops at that time had an [[ComicBook/UncannyXMen2018 X-Men team]] who were planning to deal with their enemies or die trying. Not wanting her to betray her faith and ethics, he tells her to join the Champions instead, prompting [[ComicBook/KamalaKhan Ms. Marvel]] to immediately give her the invitation.²* BrokenRecord: When she first appeared, all she could say was "turaab" (dust). That she had been abducted and then killed her abductors might've had something to do with this.²* CaptainEthnic: While she's become a well-developed character over the years, she still has a stereotypically Muslim power.²* DishingOutDirt: Dust can transform into a cloud of sand or dust. In this form she can propel herself through the air at great speeds. This form makes her particularly dangerous, as the microscopic edges of the sand particles act as tiny blades, stripping the flesh off an opponent. ²* LogicalWeakness: Dust's main weakness is water, but has also been shown to have a vulnerability to air. ²* OddFriendship: She is one of X-23's very few friends, even after the two of them ended up on opposite sides of the A vs. X debacle.²* OffModel: Despite supposedly wearing a niqab, some writers tend to draw it more like an abaya (or vice-versa), a fact Gentle even comments on at one point.²* ReedRichardsIsUseless: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]. She fights terrorists with her powers.²* TeamMom: In later appearances, she takes on this role.²* TokenReligiousTeammate: A devout Muslim who still observes ''niqab''. ²* TokenWholesome: As one of the few heroic devoutly Muslim characters (and certainly one of the highest-profile ones) in mainstream comics, she is never portrayed in a negative light.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Wither/Kevin Ford]]²[[quoteright:168:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wither00.jpg]] ²²Wither was a mutant with the ability to break down organic matter just by touching it.²----²²* BlessedWithSuck: His power destroys any organic matter, and he's got absolutely no control over it.²* TheCorruptible: As it turns out, his power makes him feel a constant hunger to rot and kill things and he's only one step away from giving in.²* EvilCounterpart: To Josh in Selene's inner circle.²* FromNobodyToNightmare: From normal kid to murderer working with Selene.²* {{Goth}}: At least Julian calls him one.²* JerkWithAHeartOfGold[=/=]JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: He has a nicer side, but as the time goes he forsakes more and more out of it for selfish reasons. ²* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: He died after an encounter with Elixir, at the end of Necrosha.]]²* LoveTriangle: [[TriangRelations Type IV]] with him, Laurie and Josh.²** LoveDodecahedron: Cessily is in love with him, but he loves Laurie, who has feelings for Josh, unaware he's in love with Rahne.²* PoorCommunicationKills: After he accidentally [[spoiler:withers Laurie's hand]] he overhears Julian telling the rest of his team he doesn't know what to do with him. He runs away from the school, not even waiting long enough to hear Julian assuring everybody that no matter what, Hellions will stand together.²* ProtagonistJourneyToVillain: From X-Man in training to one of Selene's minions.²* TheRival: To Elixir²** RivalTurnedEvil: Once he met Selene.²* SelfMadeOrphan: His powers killed his father when they first activated.²* SixthRanger: To the Hellions.²** SixthRangerTraitor: Originally joined the New Mutants but later switched to the Hellions.²* TouchOfDeath: Kevin mutant ability manifests as a psionic field permeating his flesh that decays, and eventually disintegrates all forms of organic matter by touch. ²* WalkingWasteland: He could easily be one.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Pixie/Megan Gwynn]]²[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/megan_gwynn_earth_616_from_marvel_war_of_heroes_001.jpg]] ²²A Welsh student with insect-like wings and magical teleportation abilities.²----²²* AuthorAppeal: Greg Land loves to draw her in stereotypical club and rave attire. ²* AscendedExtra: Didn't really do much, if anything, before Decimation.²* TheCutie: Pre-Decimation. The fact that she wore a bicycle helmet as part of her uniform helps.²* DependingOnTheArtist: How colorful her wings are, whether they're like a butterfly's or a dragonfly; it's suggested their appearance is dependent on her mood. Also whether she has completely black eyes or just black sclera.²* HalfHumanHybrid: She doesn't just look like a winged fairy, she's actually half-fae on her mother's side.²* ImHavingSoulPains: The ritual that tore out a piece of her soul filled the hole with dark magic, which reacts to any similarly dark forces nearby like a compass.²* ItRunsInTheFamily: Turns out she's Mastermind's daughter and like his other children has illusion related mutant powers.²* [[LikesOlderWomen Likes Older Men]]: Megan had a crush on Cyclops, and on separate occasions has been trying to get in personal space of other more handsome men, like Gambit, Angel and even ComicBook/CaptainAmerica.²* MushroomSamba: Her 'pixie dust' makes its target see cutesy things like teddy-bears and unicorns.²* ThePollyanna: This girl goes through such huge amounts of horror, yet never really loses her upbeat and optimistic attitude.²* PrecociousCrush: Had a big one on Cyclops.²* RoseHairedSweetie: She fit the definition for a good while, until Magik (or Magik's demonic clone) got to her. DependingOnTheArtist, her hair's now either mostly black with pink streaks or mostly pink with black streaks, but either way, she was heavily affected by having bits of her soul ripped out and is suffering some serious overall disillusionment with the X-Adults.²* SixthRanger: To the New X-Men.²* TheSoulless: Magik took a chunk of her soul. It turned parts of her hair black, changed the color of her wings and made her more liable to swear, but that's about it.²* StepfordSmiler: Some of her misadventures left her scarred, but she doesn't let that affect her daily life. Unless it has to.²* TeleportersAndTransporters: After a sojourn into Limbo she's taught a teleportation spell by Magik. It's got more range than Nightcrawler's but less utility in battle due to casting time.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Anole/Victor Borkowski]]²[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/victor_borkowski_earth_616_046.jpg]] ²²Anole has a reptilian physiology with enhanced speed and agility, as well as the ability to camouflage, climb walls, and is equipped with razor-sharp teeth and claws.²----²²* AnArmAndALeg: Loses an arm during the visit to Limbo, though it quickly grows back, something that surprises everyone, but Victor the most.²* BewareTheNiceOnes: Rockslide said a derogatory remark by accident, so Victor defenestrated him.²* CallingTheOldManOut: Called out Northstar on one occasion.²* CameBackStrong: Non-fatal example: If Anole loses a limb, the one that grows back will be larger and stronger than the one he lost. However see DependingOnTheArtist.²* DependingOnTheArtist: Anole's appearance varies ''wildly'' depending on who is drawing him. Details such as the shape of his head, or whether he has a tail can change between issues, to say nothing of different books altogether. Whether or not he has his "[[FanNickname Popeye Arm]]"[[note]]After losing his arm in Limbo, it grew back larger and stronger[[/note]] is also inconsistent, to the point that [[ShrugOfGod the official story is now that he lost it in an incident that has yet to be explored.]]²* GoodThingYouCanHeal: Originally, whether he can actually grow back all of his limbs or not isn't clear. X-23 offers to test this by cutting them off (painlessly, she adds), but Victor understandably doesn't want to try. This was later confirmed during ''Comicbook/ExtraordinaryXMen'', when he lost his other limbs while trapped in the future with Glob, Martha, Ernst, and Colossus, and they all grew back.²* ShrugOfGod: Jordan D. White's response when challenged by fans over how Anole lost the monster limbs he picked up in ''Extraordinary'' and reverted back to his classic "[[WesternAnimation/{{Popeye}} Arm," or [[DependingOnTheArtist artists not even drawing that]], was to dismiss them as "stories yet to be told."²* SixthRanger: To the New X-Men.²* StrongerThanTheyLook: Except for his overgrown limb, Victor is a rather small and slightly-built guy. Yet he's still surprisingly strong. Downplayed after he loses the rest of his limbs in ''Extraordinary X-Men'' and they all grow back massive to match.²* SuperStrength: He was able to throw ''Rockslide'' out a window after Santo pushed him too far.²* StraightGay: [[AllGaysLoveTheater His love of theater]] notwithstanding.²* ThoseTwoGuys: Often pairs up with Rockslide, particularly in later stories.²* WallCrawl²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Gentle/Nehzno Abidemi]]²[[quoteright:236:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/b828bc40a33e2b40096a87382cdca650.jpg]] ²²A Wakandan student with super-strength. Formerly assigned to Storm's squad.²----²²* BlessedWithSuck: Gentle has super-strength, except that he has no control over it beyond the vibranium tattoos that cover his skin. The more he uses his powers, the more likely he is to suffer a potentially fatal seizure.²* FantasticRacism: Averted in regards with his fellow Wakandans; it's not the fact that he's a mutant they have a problem with, it's because his father was Russian.²* GentleGiant: It's how he got his name.²* TheQuietOne: Barely ever says a word and mostly focuses on meditation.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Jonas Graymalkin / Graymalkin]]²[[quoteright:178:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/41b33ead63135767bf6b4fa1c6d11fe3.jpg]] ²²Professor Xavier's great, great, great, great etc. etc. grand-uncle from 200 years in the past.

Was recently unearthed and joined the young X-Men. Suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and confusion over the world of the future. Anole has taken him under his wing.²----²²* BuriedAlive: Was subjected to this by his own father after he was caught kissing a boy. Fortunately, he survived long enough to be unearthed years later, but the experience understandably left him with PTSD.²* BuryYourGays: Literally -- his father's response to finding him with another boy was to curse him for being born and ''bury him alive''.²* FishOutOfTemporalWater²* HumanPopsicle²* LastNameBasis²* NaiveNewcomer²* RipVanWinkle ²* StraightGay²* UndeathlyPallor: His completion and subterranean based powers definitely give off the impression. ²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Eric Gitter/Ink]]²[[quoteright:189:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ink_young_x_men_vol_1_10_textless.jpg]] ²²A punk from the ghetto who discovered that whenever he got a tattoo, he'd get a new power based symbolically on whatever the tattoo depicts (wings make him fly, a hazard symbol on his hand makes him to make people violently ill with a touch). He later discovered that the tattoo artist was the mutant rather than himself, making him one of ''very'' few X-Men to not be an actual mutant. Fell into a coma after using his powers to heal dying teammate Dust.²----²²* ArtImitatesLife: The tattoos. However, he's not actually a mutant at all.²* DroppedABridgeOnHim²* HeelFaceMole²* PowerTattoo: In this case it's not the tattoo that gives him his powers, but the tattoo artist.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Alisa Tager/Cipher]]²[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cipher_alisa_tager.jpg]] ²²A mysterious woman who appeared to inform Ink that the Young X-Men were in peril.

She is currently enrolled at the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning.²----²²* IntangibleMan: Intangible Girl²* {{Invisibility}}: Cipher's abilities include full spectrum invisibility and complete stealth, able to mask even her psychic imprint from most telepaths.²* OneSteveLimit: There are two 'Cyphers' in the comics, one is a guy with multi-lingual powers from the New Mutants who died years ago and has been recently resurrected in Necrosha and the other is a girl with invisibility and phasing. Thankfully their codenames have different spellings to avoid confusion from readers. ²* RememberTheNewGuy: She is introduced in Young X-Men as not a new character but actually a secret Xavier Institute student originally known only to Cyclops and Jean Grey.

[[spoiler: He was also responsible for stealing half of his sister's powers and leaving her with a broken mind]].²* BlindSeer: Like the X-Men villain Destiny, she could use telepathy to sometimes psychically sense events when other telepaths apparently could not.²** In the Necrosha storyline, Blindfold's precognitive abilities are neutralized while in the presence of the resurrected Destiny, another precog which is explained that this is because two precogs in close presence to one another "are like two magnets pressed together positive pole to positive pole" and will negatively effect one another's powers.²* CainAndAbel: The Abel to her older brother Luca's Cain. It helps that Luca was also a BigBrotherBully.²* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Blindfold comes off like this thanks to her powers giving her a warped sense of time and causality.

After Luca's death, however, her powers were restored, which in turn restored her mind.]]²* SiblingYinYang: She was born without eyes while all that's left of her brother's body are his eyes after his powers activated.²* VerbalTic: Blindfold is... hard to describe. Basically, as she's having a conversation with you, she sounds like she's giving yes-or-no answers to someone just off-screen (some of this is explained through her friendship with Cipher, who possesses invisibility powers). She also frequently injects words like "please", "you're welcome", "thank you", and "pardon" into her sentences.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Alani Ryan/Loa]]²[[quoteright:236:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eed271960d9561dc4b47b8fbe075fdf5.jpg]] ²²Loa is a mutant with the ability to dissolve the molecular bonds of anything she touches.
