Benjamin Deeds

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/3968291_028.jpg

A post-AvX mutant whose power appeared while in school. He was originally scouted by Scott's team, but a meeting with the time-displaced O5 X-Men interrupted the recruitment. Scott then approached him later, after his parents and the school abandoned him, and managed to get him on-board. He's a ShapeShifter who mimics those who he is facing and has attributes that allow him to infiltrate secure locations, although it turns out that is just one of his abilities.


  • Ambiguously Bi: He once told Emma Frost he was gay to avoid having to hit on a woman. On the other hand, he demonstrated an attraction to Magik, and she caught him checking out her ass (Yana promptly warned him she would likely break him). He later started a relationship with a male student.
  • Charm Person: His powers allow him to make the people he's with feel good and thus safe around him, letting him convince them to do what he asks as long as they aren't aware of his power.
  • Glamour: His powers are a variant of this.
  • Involuntary Shapeshifter: He has no control over his powers yet, but Emma is working with him on it.
  • Legacy Character: Initially averted. Emma wanted to call him Morph, but he was against it. However, he eventually came to accept the name..
  • Walking Techbane: When using his powers technology can be scrambled, including audio and visual.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/3601170_uncx2013017017_col_c9526_7.jpg

A post-AvX mutant who whose power appeared when he was in the middle of being dumped by his girlfriend. While experimenting in a parking lot he is attacked by two security guards and shot while trying to get away. The Stepford Cuckoos and Magik arrived to bring him to safety and he joined as the team's Technopath.


  • Jumped at the Call: He started experimenting with his power the moment after he got it.
  • Police Brutality: A victim of it.
  • Technopath: Can control vehicles with his voice.
  • Understanding Girlfriend: Averted. His girlfriend sold him out to the cops as soon as confronted on the fact that he was a mutant and he got shot as a result.
  • Older Than They Look: The rest of the new Uncanny X-Men are teenagers or in their early twenties. Hijack looks like he's in that age group, but recently during an argument with one of the Stepford Sisters, it comes out that he's actually 30.

     Eva Bell / Tempus 

Eva Bell/Tempus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_nh9igi67zp1sioerco1_500.jpg

A post-AvX mutant whose power awoke when a fight broke out between her brother and a boy she had a crush on and enclosed an entire block in a time bubble for twenty hours. She was accosted by the police and rescued by Cyclops, Emma Frost, and Magneto. She later joined his new team.


  • Action Mom: During her trip to the future she get married and has a child, and being a reality/time warping superhero she naturally qualifies.
  • Awesome Aussie: She took out the Avengers with a single bubble, sealing them away for hours.
  • Broken Pedestal: For most of the Uncanny X-Men she is one of Cyclops' biggest supporters and even has an obvious crush on him. Her admiration and belief for him are shattered after the events of her time traveling adventures and using Xavier to erase a dangerous mutant from existence that could have destroyed everyone. She becomes disillusioned with Cyclops' plight for a Mutant Revolution and blames him for how things have gotten so bad to begin with.
  • Butterfly of Doom: Her powers make this a very real concern. Once Eva learns to travel through time, she can make changes in the past but can not anticipate the effects. during the Uncanny and All-New X-Men annuals, an insignificant change made in the past wiped the family she started in the future from existence.
    • Notably averted when she wipes Matthew Malloy from existence. Even though one of the manifestations of his mutant power destroyed an entire Skrull army during the events of Secret Invasion, this apparently had no effect on the timeline.
  • Catchphrase: Her gratuitous "Crikey!" that she'd yell to remind us that, yes, she is Australian. Thankfully it went away after a few issues.
  • Dangerously Short Skirt: She wears a very short tennis skirt. A colorists' mistake in Uncanny X-Men #31 had led to some very Unfortunate Implications.
  • Happily Married: When she's stuck in the future for several years she settles down, gets married and has a child to form a happy family. She loses it all.
  • Hot for Teacher: Has an extremely obvious crush on Cyclops, to the point where all the students knew. This pretty much dies out by the Last Will & Testament of Charles Xavier.
  • Jumped at the Call: Like Triage, she loves her role as an X-Man.
  • Older and Wiser: After she comes back from her time traveling adventures she acts significantly more mature than her teenage teammates.
  • Plot-Relevant Age-Up: In Issue #17 of Uncanny X-Men she looks somewhat older after having gone missing in time for several pages. It has been noticed by Cyclops that she's aged several years, in fact. The annual showed that she spent at least seven years in the distant future and raised a child.
  • Power Dyes Your Hair: Since using her ability, her hair has gained white streaks in it.
  • Power Incontinence: How she met the X-Men in the first place. She couldn't control her powers and ended up getting the wrong kind of attention. The annual reveals that the second time it happened sent her not only to the Wild Wild West, but to the Year 2099 as well.
  • Put on a Bus: Has never been seen since the end of Will & Testament of Charles Xavier.
  • Superpower Lottery: Her ability can take out the Avengers, including the Hulk, after less than a week of training. What's more, it seems that she can displace time as well, with Issue #10 hinting that she has multiple levels of Time Manipulation abilities.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: In terms of her powers, she's viewed as this for Kiden Nixon for some readers.
  • Time Master: She has this potential, judging by things so far.
    • Time Stands Still: Her power at first manifests as a localized version of this, sealing anything within the bubble she creates in time until it dissipates. She herself is immune should she be inside the bubble, although time flows differently within it. It's hinted that she doesn't completely stop time, but slows it down to the point where taking a single step would require a hundred years to pass outside the bubble.
      • More than hinted at, Doctor Strange once showed up in her bubble in the A+X books and explained that no one can stop time completely, not even her, but he's never seen anyone this strong at it. He was only able to talk to her in the bubble by speeding up time for himself. (Note that the series itself is not-canon)
    • Time Travel: Within the time bubble she can jaunt things forwards or backwards in time, such as sending someone a minute into the future to avoid an attack.
      • As her abilities improve, it's heavily implied that her time travel abilities break one of the fundamental laws of time travel in the Marvel Universe: She can alter her own reality's past.note 
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Big time, due to being subjected to Break the Cutie during her time trip. To the point that she erases people out of existence.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fabio_medina_earth_616_from_spider_man_vol_2_9_001.png

A post-AvX mutant who whose power appeared one day after being pickpocketed. He was tasered by the police and about to be arrested when Cyclops' new team appeared to rescue him. Following a quick battle with Sentinels, he joined the team but soon left after being dragged to Limbo. He was then taken into SHIELD custody before being rescued again by Cyclops' team.


    Gabby Kinney / Honey Badger / Scout 

Gabrielle "Gabby" Zelda Kinney / X23_4GAB / Honey Badger / Scout

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/honeybadger.PNG

The cloned sister of X-23, Gabby was created by Alchemax Genetics along with nine other sisters. After Laura helped the Sisters take down the ones who created and abused them, Gabby remained with her as her Kid Sidekick. She finally joined the X-Men when she and Laura joined the resurrected Jean Grey's team after Cassandra Nova framed Jean for the murder of a UN ambassador.


  • Adorably Precocious Child: She's 13, a mutant with a Healing Factor and Wolverine Claws, trained to be a killer, and is ridiculously intelligent and very adult in how she reacts to the world. And then she turns around and gushes about making a costume for her pet wolverine both to protect his identity and because it's adorable. She also does her hair in barrettes.
  • Adorkable: Gabby is all about this trope. For example, in All-New Wolverine #2: After Laura tells Bellona she won't kill the Alchemax goons because they might have families, Bellona snarks about cutting off one of the soldier's fingers because he might play piano. Gabby gathers them up so he can have them reattached later just in case it's actually true.
  • Alternate Universe:
    • She had one in Old Man Logan's home reality. Logan knew she wasn't telling Laura about her powers, because the Gabby of his reality had them. All that's known is that she killed and was killed by the Laura of Old Man Logan's universe, and based on Logan's reaction to seeing her grave, she was likely the Heel of the fight.
    • Another exists in another alternate future in which the heroes won their final conflict with the villains, ushering in a utopia. She lives in Madripoor with Laura, married and has two boys, and has succeeded her sister as Wolverine.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Or Ambiguously Bi. When Jean is setting up a psychic bond with her team before a mission in X-Men Red, Gabby warns her not to do anything with the feelings she had for a girl she saw on a bus, because she hasn't fully explored them yet.
  • Angst? What Angst?: To the point it's even Lampshaded In-Universe. Gabby is remarkably upbeat considering the torture and abuse she went through from the moment she was cloned. It helped that Zelda, Bellona, and the rest of the Sisters shielded her from the worst of it, but she's nonetheless a chipper and sunny ball of energy in contrast to Laura's stoicism.
  • Audible Sharpness: spoiler: Her claws make the same snikt sound as Laura's. Strangely enough, it does this even though they're bone, in which case the Onomatopoeia is traditionally schlikt instead.
  • Badass Adorable: Gabby is a positively adorable little killing machine. She's also a trained killer who carries a MAC-10, and is skilled enough that even Laura found it difficult to track her. And that's before she reveals that spoiler: she has bone claws.
  • Big Sister Worship: Gabby shows a lot of this towards Laura. She outright admits to Chandler how much she admires her, and a big part of wanting her to be a good person comes from Laura's example. She even describes her as "that perfect woman" to Old Man Logan during their volley of If You Ever Do Anything to Hurt Her....
  • Brutal Honesty: Is perfectly content to tell people exactly what's on her mind, or what she thinks of them. Unlike Laura, who was this because she had No Social Skills because of her upbringing, in Gabby's case it owes a lot more to her youth.
  • Cheerful Child: As noted under The Pollyanna, there's very little that can permanently dent her friendly disposition and sunny demeanor. It starts getting creepy when she can threaten severe bodily harm to someone, then immediately switches right back to "cute" and runs off with a cheerful "Bye!"
  • Children Are Innocent: Gabby was the youngest of the Sisters, and Zelda and Bellona took great pains to protect her from the worst of what Alchemax did to them. Dr. Strange even sees that she is an innocent when he looks at her through the Eye of Agamotto, and Zelda calls her what she and Bellona should have been.
  • Civvie Spandex: Her first costume saw her wearing mismatched tights and tennis shoes under her body armor. Her most recent costume is a hoodie mocked up to look like the classic gold-and-blue Wolverine cowl.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: A subdued example, but Gabby nonetheless admits she often has a lot of bizarre thoughts. She becomes instant best friends with Deadpool as a result.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Quite frequently, in keeping with her mild Cloud Cuckoolander tendencies. For example when she and Deadpool discover what the lab where Jonathan escaped from was doing, she's horrified...to discover that they've made zombies cute!note  Most people would have stopped at the fact they made zombies.
  • Cool Mask: At least two of her costumes have incorporated masks:
    • The first was her cobbled-together body armor she wore with the Sisters, which made use of a painted goalie-type mask.
    • Her second costume had goggles and a mask which covered her lower face, much like a fighter pilot's oxygen mask.
  • Deadpan Snarker: There's very little of her dialogue that isn't this. She snarks at nearly everything. When she meets a one-eyed pirate who mentions metaphorically seeing things differently, Gabby immediately makes a quip about her lack of depth perception.
  • Fangirl: She positively geeks out over meeting Captain America and Jean Grey. Her Big Sister Worship of Laura also edges in this direction.
  • Feels No Pain: Gabby has a population of nanites in her bloodstream that keep her from feeling physical pain. Which sometimes leads to the unsettling image of her suffering extreme injuries but still grinning or joking about how much fun the actions which led to said injuries were.
  • Freakiness Shame: Notably averted. Gabby's face is scarred as a result of her upbringing with Alchemax, but she's completely nonchalant about them. It becomes a Heartwarming Moment in issue 21 of All-New Wolverine when she's not bothered in the least by Deadpool's appearance, and the two even bond over their scars.
  • Girly Bruiser: Gabby is an Action Girl with Wolverine Claws and a Healing Factor who Feels No Pain. She also painted a Sentinel with flowers and rainbows, and many of her costumes incorporated both symbols.
  • Hair Decorations: Gabby often has her hair done with barrettes, which helps make her look even younger.
  • Healing Factor: Unlike her other sisters, Gabby did develop one. Fortunately, because it allows her to survive after Logan blindly impales her on his claws in a feral rage. How it's affected by the nanomachines in her bloodyet to be revealed. Word of God indicates she still has her scars because they were there before it activated.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Gabby is prone to making very up-front and honest observations about the people and things around her. However unlike Laura, who was this earlier in her life because of her lack of socialization, in Gabby's case it owes a lot to her youth.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: Gabby immediately strikes one up with Deadpool, of all people. Laura is less than pleased.
  • Junior Counterpart: Gabby is to Laura what Laura herself was to Logan, being her clone, ward, and Kid Sidekick.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: Gabby serves much the same role to her big sister that Jubilee served to Logan, and is primarily the Ankle-Biter variety. She's a cute and peppy smart-alleck to contrast with Laura's stoicism, has an interminably upbeat demeanor, and is a font of humor with her off-kilter and observant humor. She even has a Team Pet in the form of Jonathan the actual wolverine.
  • Killer Rabbit: She's tiny, cute, often naive, remarkably upbeat considering her situation, and genuinely wants to be a good person. She's also packing heat (and claws), and is highly-trained as a killer and assassin.
  • Little Miss Badass: Tiny, cute, girlish, and adorable killing machine.
  • Little Miss Snarker: Gabby has Sarcasm Mode as practically her default setting. She snarks at almost everything.
  • Mama Bear: Do not hurt Jonathan. She will end you.
  • Modified Clone: Intentionally, according to Word of God Gabby was rapid-aged to the physical maturity of a 13 year-old. Alchemax also implanted her with nanites that block her from experiencing physical pain. Unintentionally, Gabby only has a single claw, one in each hand. Considering her other Sisters never developed the X-gene at all, it's likely due to flaws in the cloning process.
  • Mood Whiplash: Gabby can shift from threatening someone one second, to cheerfully running off with a casual "Bye!" the next.
  • Mouthy Kid: She's a Deadpan Snarker with no brain-mouth filter. Unlike Laura at her age it's not a result of No Social Skills, she's simply an Adorably Precocious Child who says what's on her mind.
  • One Head Taller: Gabby is tiny, at best not quite half a head shorter than even Laura, who is officially noted at 5'1". She's officially 4'6"
  • Pint-Sized Kid: Gabby is the youngest of the Sisters, and is also the shortest, being BARELY half a head shorter than Laura, who is only 5'1"!
  • The Pollyanna: Pretty much nothing can permanently darken her sunny disposition. It actually becomes rather disturbing the way she can threaten serious bodily harm to someone one moment, yet slip right back into a friendly demeanor with a casual "Bye!"
  • Rapid Aging: According to Word of God she was rapid-aged to her physical age of 13.
  • Scars Are Forever: Gabby's facial scars didn't heal even after her healing factor activated. Word of God is that it's because she had them before her powers manifested.
  • Teens Are Short: She's thirteen years old and even shorter than Laura, who is only 5'1" (and herself fulfills this trope). According to Laura, she's 4'6".
  • Tights Under Shorts: Gabby's first outfit consisted of shorts worn over a pair of mismatched tights, and bright pink tennis shoes.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Gabby is a trained killer equipped with body armor...which she decorates with flowers and hearts.
  • Younger Than They Look: Although she has the body (and mind. Sort of) of a 13 year-old girl, Word of God confirms that she was rapid-aged to that point. It's unclear how old she actually is.

Joanna Cargill / Frenzy

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/frenzy_by_scot_eaton_&_john_dell_1.jpg

A former enemy of the X-Men, devout Acolyte of Magneto, and one of Apocalypses' earlier minions, with the mutant power of being functionally invulnerable. She declared her intention to join the X-Men after the Age of X event.


  • Abusive Parents: Her father loved his son, but treated her as a mistake. When her brother joined the military and got killed in action, her father became actively abusive towards Joanna. When her powers manifested, she killed him accidentally in self-defense.
  • Angry Black Man: Her thing before Age of X.
  • Bondage Is Bad: Her outfit in the Alliance of Evil.
  • Brutal Honesty: In "All New Inhumans #11" she explains to Crystal that no matter how many mutants she does help out, and while she is better than most, there will always be a next time until they destroy the terrigen cloud.
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: Why she decided to join the X-Men, because her time in the Age of X reality gave her a place to channel her anger.
  • Eye Scream: Magneto once shot a laser into her eye, apparently damaging part of her brain in the process. It doesn't seem to have had any effect, though.
  • Fantastic Racism: Doesn't like humans. Or de-powered mutants. Even if that mutant is Magneto.
  • Happily Married: In the Age of X, to Basillisk (Cyclops). She still has some feelings for Scott afterward, even if he doesn't reciprocate.
  • Hopeless Suitor: For Scott Summers.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Was a former villain, now a hero.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: Completely. Microwave radiation doesn't hurt her, Cyclops' eye beams don't hurt her. Heck, her insides are just as tough as the rest of her.
  • Super Strength: A heavy-hitter.
  • That Man Is Dead: When Magneto lost his powers on M-Day, she was insistent that he was essentially dead and gone. Then she tried to ensure this.
