Professor X/Charles Xavier
Charles Francis Xavier, the leader and founder of the X-Men, is a paraplegic with one of the world's most powerful mutant minds. He is a high-level telepathic mutant who can read, control and influence human minds. Also known as Professor X, his goals are to mediate the co-existence of mutants and humans and to protect society from antagonistic mutants, including his old friend, Magneto. To achieve these aims, Professor X founded Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters to teach mutants to explore and control their powers.
- Arch-Enemy: As with most versions, Magneto serves as the enemy of Professor X and his X-Men. Magneto is also his rival in proposing a different dream for mutants, one of mutant supremacy. Which is against everything Xavier stands for.
- Friendly Enemy: All things said, they're pretty cordial in spite of this.
- Bald of Awesome: As per usual, Professor X is bald and a very powerful telepathic mutant.
- Big Good: As always, Professor X is the leader of the X-Men, principal of the Xavier Institute for Gifted Youngsters, and the standard-bearer of the campaign for mutants and Muggles to co-exist peacefully.
- Cain and Abel: He has an evil stepbrother (Juggernaut, who is actually called Cain).
- Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: Jim Ward's voice as Professor Xavier was inspired by the live-action version portrayed by Patrick Stewart.
- Cool Old Guy: He can be this as well.
- Chrome Dome Psi: As per usual for the character.
- Deus Exit Machina: He and Jean Grey suffering from comas inflicted to them from a bomb in the pilot episode during the shows run kept major plots from being resolved far too quickly with their all-powerful telepathy and telekinesis respectively.
- Evil Former Friend: As with most versions, he and Magneto used to be friends, before Magneto chose to go on the warpath and become a terrorist. However, there are some times in the show where they tend to act in a friendly manner to each other.
- Friendly Rivalry: He has this with Magneto, as with most versions.
- Gadgeteer Genius: He is responsible for the creation of technological achievements such as the mutant-tracking computer Cerebro and the Danger Room.
- Genius Cripple: While Xavier may be a paraplegic confined to using a wheelchair, he is still a very powerful telepath who is responsible for the creation of technological achievements such as the mutant-tracking computer Cerebro and the Danger Room and the formation of the X-Men.
- Good Is Not Nice: However, it's not to the same level as his comic book counterpart.
- Guile Hero: His intellect is his greatest weapon.
- Handicapped Badass: He is a very powerful mutant that is confined to a wheelchair.
- Hypocrite: Professor X could also be considered this, at least in regards towards Cyclops. He pretty much ignored Cyclops's personal problems while always putting time aside for Wolverine.
- Last of His Kind: In the Bad Future, he is the final telepathic mutant.
- The Leader: Professor X served as one of the leaders of the X-Men before he was placed in a coma.
- Manipulative Bastard: It's not to the same level as his comic book counterpart, but he is still this.
- Mind Rape: It's implied that he and Jean Grey have been doing this to Cyclops.
- Mind over Manners: Professor X is able to read, control, and influence people's minds.
- Mutant: He is one that has telepathic powers.
- Mythology Gag: His design looks very similar to the version from the X-Men film series.
- Omnidisciplinary Scientist: A mild version. He is at least an expert in genetics, and a proficient inventor. He created the mutant-searching computer Cerebro and the Danger Room.
- Ominous Message from the Future: Charles gives these to Wolverine while his mind is stuck in the future so Wolverine can stop the crises from happening in the past.
- Papa Wolf: Towards his students.
- Psychic Powers: Just like in the comics and most versions, he is one of the most powerful psychics in the franchise.
- Ripple Effect-Proof Memory: Professor X seems to have it. Or does he? As a telepath in contact with people from the past he can read from their minds what he told them to avert, even when it no longer happened.
- The Rival: As per usual, Professor X is a friendly one to Magneto as a result of their differing views on whether mutantkind and mankind can live in peace or not.
- Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Professor X sends messages to the X-Men from the Bad Future, in the hope they can stop it.
- Supporting Leader: He is this to the X-Men from the apocalyptic future.
- Team Dad: The members of the X-Men view him as their father figure, especially Cyclops, Jean, and Wolverine.
- Telepathy: As always, Professor X is one of the most powerful telepaths and able to contact minds on a global scale.
- We Used to Be Friends: As per usual, Professor Xavier and Magneto were initially best friends until they broke off due to their different opinions (Charles had the opinion that mutants and humanity are not enemies while Erik believed they are with mutants poised to become the dominant force). As of now, they are currently Friendly Rivals and enemies.
Haunted by memories of the life that was stolen from him, Logan, also known as Wolverine, is a rebellious loner forced into being the reluctant leader of the X-Men after the disappearance of Professor Charles Xavier and Jean Grey. Wolverine has a rapid healing ability and indestructible adamantium metal claws capable of slicing through almost any substance known to man make him a fearsome combatant. Only with the help of the team can Wolverine hope to protect the world from its own bleak future and continue Xavier's mission of peace.
- Absurdly Sharp Blade: Those pointy claws that stick out of his hands.
- The Ace: As per usual, Wolverine is the best at what he does, and what he does isn't very nice.
- Adaptational Badass: Subverted. While Wolverine is already badass in the comics, this version got made into The Leader of the team and is quite efficient at it.
- Amusing Injuries: Wolverine's ability to heal from virtually anything has led to him often being the target of some quite slapstick-style humor that would be fatal for most anyone else, such as when Cyclops blasts him out a three story window for annoying him or the Hulk knocking him miles through the air across a forest.
- Animal-Themed Superbeing: He has a lot in common with real wolverines through the fact that they are both small in comparison to others, solitary, extremely aggressive for their size, have very keen senses of smell, and pack powerful claws. Hence the name, Wolverine.
- Anti-Hero: Of the Pragmatic Hero variety, as he will not hesitate to get dirty if he needs to.
- The Atoner: One of the reasons given for Wolverine being a hero is that after regaining his memories, he feels very guilty about all the nasty stuff he did in his past when he was associated with Weapon X.
- Archenemy: Sabertooth, as always.
- Audible Sharpness: As per usual, he has a pair of very sharp adamantium claws in his hands.
- Badass Biker: Wolverine is this in general through being a skilled Motorcycle rider.
- The Berserker: As per usual, Wolverine has this as his default fighting style through wading into battle, hacking and slashing with his claws.
- Betty and Veronica: Logan is the Veronica to Scott's Betty in relation to Jean.
- Conscience Makes You Go Back: In the first episode, Logan sees smoke coming from a train wreck down the road. He initially drives away from it, but then eventually goes to back to help.
- Cool Old Guy: Wolverine is arguably one of the coolest (and oldest) guys around, but "cool" doesn't necessarily mean "nice"...
- Deadpan Snarker: Wolverine tends to make sarcastic, if not snarky, remarks.
- Distaff Counterpart: Laura Kinney (aka X-23), who's literally his female clone made from an incomplete DNA sample at Weapon X.
- Drill Sergeant Nasty: He serves as this towards the entire team.
- Friend to All Children: This is best shown when he rescues a blonde haired mutant girl named Magma.
- Genius Bruiser: This is one of Wolverine's biggest strengths is his mind. He's been around for well over a century and has spent quite a bit of that time taking in information. In addition to that, He is a great leader of the X-Men.
- Good Is Not Nice: Although Wolverine is more-or-less a heroic guy, unless you're his daughter or some other kid he's taken under his wing or joined the X-Men, it's better he ignores you.
- Guttural Growler: As per usual, Wolverine speaks with a deep, gravelly voice due to once again having Steve Blum as his voice actor.
- Healing Factor: Part of his powers.
- Honor Before Reason: Wolverine is attacked by Cyclops for hitting on Jean. The clawed one refuses to fight back simply because he promised Jean he wouldn't (granted, Wolverine brought this on himself since he hit on a woman who was already in a relationship). He also holds to promises he made to Mystique and Yuriko years earlier.
- I Am a Monster: Wolverine blatantly acknowledges his own vengeful tendencies and even lampshaded the trope word for word, but he fights to prevent others he knows can do better from doing the same. Case and point with Angel.
- Iconic Item: As per usual, they are his claws, especially in combination with the gloves that have the chutes the claws extend through.
- Iconic Outfit: Wolverine wears his trademark Astonishing X-Men costume from the comics.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Unfortunately due to the fact that the show was meant for children to watch, Wolverine was only allowed to use this particular signature move that he has against robots (such as the Sentinels).
- The Leader: He was promoted to the leader of the X-Men by Professor Xavier after Cyclops was unable to.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Wolverine is a Jerk with an abrasive personality, a serious anti-authoritarian attitude, and nasty personal habits. At the same time, he is a devoted friend with a soft spot for teenagers (particularly girls), women, and children. He will go out of his way to help the people that need him.
- Knight in Sour Armor: While Wolverine is very cynical, he is still on the side of good.
- Mythology Gag: He is wearing his silly original costume from the comics in the flashback presented in the episode "Wolverine vs The Hulk".
- The Nose Knows: Wolverine's sense of smell is very strong, resulting in him using this ability to track mutants. The viewer even gets an inside perspective into it by seeing the imaginary scent track left by whoever Wolverine is trying to find.
- One Head Taller: He's one of the tallest members of the X-Men, which is a stark contrast from his original character design of the comics as a short and hairy beast of a man.
- One-Man Army: As always, he's a very tough member of the X-men.
- Papa Wolf: Harm or threaten to harm any of his team mates or students under his care and he will hunt you down to the ends of the Earth.
- Pragmatic Hero: As per usual, Wolverine is shown to be very violent during the fight scenes.
- Rebellious Spirit: Subverted due to exchanging his usual role with Cyclops.
- Role Reprise: He's once again voiced by Steve Blum.
- Signature Sound Effect: As with most versions of the character, SNIKT! is the sound with the adamantium claws and SCHLIKT! is the sound without it.
- Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Wolverine's name is in the title of the show and receives more focus than anyone else (other than Nightcrawler).
- Super Reflexes: Wolverine has heightened reflexes and reaction times, which are tied to his healing factor.
- Super Senses: A side effect of the healing factor is that all of Wolverine senses are superhumanly keen.
- Super Strength: Yet another byproduct of his healing factor. Wolverine's muscles, bones, and connective tissue are all denser than those of a normal human, resulting in enhanced strength.
- Unstoppable Rage: This tends to happen a lot whenever he goes into berserker mode.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Cyclops.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: Whenever he's not in costume or his clothes have been removed or destroyed in some fashion.
- Wall Crawl: He can do this through poking his claws into surfaces and climbing.
- Wolverine Claws: One version of the Trope Namer.
- Wolverine Publicity: The reason why the writers of the show made him the leader of the X-Men and the main character who appears in every episode.
- World's Best Warrior: He is good enough to put up a fight against all of that which results in him being very dangerous.
- The Worf Effect: Despite having his name in the title, Wolverine is not slacking on his indestructible punching bag duties. Against anyone with a name he either loses, stalemates, or gets a beatdown before winning. These are the hazards of having blades as your main offense when you aren't allowed to cut anyone.
- Would Hit a Girl: Wolverine is willing to attack Mystique and Emma.
Scott Summers, also known as Cyclops, is a mutant who is one of the founding members and originally the optimistic leader of Professor Xavier's X-Men, but when he lost the two people he cared for most, he also lost the drive to lead the mutant heroes. Cyclops may begrudgingly work with Wolverine and the X-men to prevent a future that looks darker every second, but inside he is alone. Cyclops has the mutant ability to project beams of pure energy from his eyes yet he can only control or block them when he is wearing a visor or sunglasses made out of ruby-quartz material or closing his eyes. If not, when he opens his eyes, he will uncontrollably shoot optic blasts at whatever he is trying to see.
- Adaptational Jerkass: Cyclops comes off as more of a Sociopathic Hero than in the comics and other animated adaptations.
- Adaptational Wimp: Cyclops loses all of his leadership qualities from the comics and other animated adaptations in favor of Wangst.
- All for Nothing: He runs into one of the Marauders on the street and instantly believes that his old boss Mr. Sinister must have Jean because he had an interest with experimenting on her in the past. He attacks several members of the Mauraders and is eventually led to Sinister himself who tells him point blank he doesn't have Jean.
- Alliterative Name: Scott Summers.
- Anti-Hero: Cyclops is more anti-heroic than Wolverine in this series.
- Badass Biker: Cyclops is shown to be very skilled with riding a Motorcycle.
- Battle Couple: With Jean, particularly in the flashback.
- Badass Longcoat: Cyclops wears his current mainstream costume from the comics with a long trench coat.
- Betty and Veronica: Scott is the Betty to Logan's Veronica in relation to Jean. Subverted as Jean still chooses to be in a relationship with Scott.
- Chick Magnet: Cyclops somehow manages to obtain the affections of both Jean Grey and Emma Frost.
- Cool Shades: As per usual, Scott wears a pair of red shades.
- Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: Nolan North as Cyclops vaguely evokes his film counterpart James Marsden.
- Crazy Jealous Guy: Scott's this for Jean when it comes to Logan.
- Deadpan Snarker: He tends to make snarky, though sarcastic, remarks toward people, particularly Wolverine.
- Despair Event Horizon: Cyclops undergoes this after losing Jean.
- The Determinator: Cyclops is a very disturbing and unheroic (if not outright unsympathetic) example with his obsession with trying to search for Jean Grey.
- Disproportionate Retribution: Scott violently blasts Logan for implying that he wasn't good enough for Jean. The results of this action are... not good.
- Distressed Dude: Cyclops appears to be cursed with this, especially in flashbacks.
- Eye Beams: Cyclops has the mutant ability to shoot powerful optic blasts, but they have a disadvantage in the fact that he is unable to turn them off, requiring him to constantly wear a protective visor or ruby sunglasses.
- Forceful Kiss: Gives one to Emma Frost after waking up from being knocked out, mistaking her for Jean. He quickly realizes his mistake and apologizes.
- Heartbroken Badass: Cyclops is supposed to be this in the series, but sadly he's just a self-destructive jerk and whiner who attacks anyone who even reminds him of Jean.
- Heroes Want Redheads: As with most versions of the character, he is attracted to the red-headed Jean Grey.
- Highschool Sweethearts: With Jean, as per usual.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: He briefly considers letting Emma Frost erase all of his memories related to Jean because the pain of being without her was too much and he was beginning to let his friends get hurt in the field.
- Love Makes You Dumb: A lot of Cyclops less than ethical, needlessly aggressive, and downright suicidal decisions are centered around his obsession with finding Jean, sometimes getting to the point where his decisions mark him as Love Makes You Crazy since he oscillates between being depressed and inactive and violent and impulsive. Especially when he starts tearing up the city nearby in broad daylight just to find leads on Jeans whereabouts.
- Love Triangle: With Jean and Emma. He's also in one with Wolverine and Jean.
- Loving a Shadow: This seems to be the entire basis of Cyclops' relationship with Jean Grey.
- Jerkass: Cyclops has the tendency of displaying not so nice behavior towards others.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his jerky behaviour, Cyclops does have some moments on the show where he is portrayed as heroic and likable, mainly through the fact that he reacts very poorly when his teammates get hurt (even Wolverine), proving that he does care after all.
- Mindlink Mates: With Jean.
- Oblivious to Love: Cyclops never seems to realize that Emma is interested in him.
- Official Couple: With Jean, as with most versions.
- One-Way Visor: As always, Cyclops wears one of these with his costume.
- Person of Mass Destruction: He becomes this when he opens his eyes while not wearing shades or a visor.
- Power Incontinence: Without his trademark visor he wears as part of his costume or a pair of ruby quartz glasses out of costume, Cyclops would be firing his Eye Beams 24/7.
- Power Limiter: Cyclops' visor and shades, which keep his uncontrollable Eye Beams under wraps.
- Power of the Sun: As per usual, Cyclops stores solar power to use his optic blasts.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Unlike the other versions, Cyclops is the red oni to Wolverine's blue oni.
- Shrinking Violet: As a teenager, his self esteem was definitely not the highest due to being bullied at the group home that he was placed in and mocked and ridiculed by his fellow first class teammates of the X-Men.
- Stepford Snarker: Cyclops is cold and often sarcastic as well as being broken, probably beyond repair.
- Sunglasses at Night: Which he uses in order to control his powers.
- Sociopathic Hero: He is this compared to his comic book counterpart and most versions.
- The Lancer: Cyclops now serves the role as this to Wolverine and the X-Men.
- The Leader: He formerly lead the X-Men.
- The Load: Cyclops of all people is portrayed as this to the X-Men in the series, especially in the flashbacks to his earlier years.
- Tall, Dark, and Handsome: Cyclops is 6'3", brunet and attractive.
- Tall, Dark, and Snarky: He can also be very snarky (particularly towards Wolverine) when he wants to be.
- Took a Level in Dumbass: Cyclops is so caught up in his despair over Jean's disappearance that he does things like go off to pick a fight with Mr. Sinister, which even Wolverine proclaims is a bad idea. Arguments about characterization aside, it's not so hard to consider why Professor Xavier might have considered Cyclops to not be in any shape to lead the team again.
- Too Dumb to Live: He makes a large amount of stupid mistakes mainly due to being obsessed with searching for Jean.
- Undying Loyalty: With his seemingly indestructible determination to hold out hope for Jean Grey's eventual return.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: Cyclops is so certain that Sinister had something to do with Jean's disappearance, which is reasonable given the backstory, but he's actually innocent. It gets deconstructed, as Cyclops becomes so obsessed that he nearly gets himself killed.
Emma Frost is a mysterious and beautiful telepathic mutant who showed up on the X-Men's doorstep just when they needed her most. She once tried to start her own school for gifted mutants, the Massachusetts Academy. The ambitious Emma is the X-Men's only hope of finding their missing colleagues. She has the mutant ability to read minds and project thoughts into other's minds, controlling their actions. She can also project mental blasts to knock out her victims by touching their brow and is able to change her skin into diamond form.
- Adaptational Heroism: Emma is portrayed in a more sympathetic light, completely turning her into a straight hero rather than a byronic one. That said, this version of Frost also has Adaptational Villainy, as she's the mole and still the White Queen of the Inner Circle (and even kicks off the events of the series as it's revealed she's the one who attacked Jean and Professor Xavier, which in turn ended up destroying the mansionalbeit with the intention of taking out the Phoenix before she could be a threat).
- Adaptational Villainy: Emma used to be one hell of a foe (even being Big Bad of New Mutants for a time) but comic fans know that that was a long time ago, at least in the main Marvel Universe. In this show, she's The Mole and still the White Queen of the Hellfire Club. However, in the finale she sacrifices her life to contain the Phoenix.
- Always Someone Better: Much like her comic book counterpart, Emma is quite possibly the most powerful telepathic mutant. Other telepaths who attempt to engage her are no match.
- Bare Your Midriff: Just like her comic book counterpart and most versions, she wears an outfit that exposes her flat stomach.
- Deadpan Snarker: She tends to snark with her fellow teammates. It makes her appear even colder at some points, but she's still a kind and sympathetic person.
- Death Equals Redemption: Her Heroic Sacrifice to stop the Phoenix Force firmly shows she is indeed on the side of the X-Men.
- Defrosting Ice Queen: Emma acts pretty much like anyone familiar with the comics would expect in her introduction. Compare that Emma with the one we see in the end. Hoo boy.
- FaceHeel Turn: When it's revealed that she is a Mole and still the White Queen of the Inner Circle (and even kicks off the events of the series as it's revealed she's the one who attacked Jean and Professor Xavier, which in turn ended up destroying the mansionalbeit with the intention of taking out the Phoenix before she could be a threat).
- Forceful Kiss: She receives one from Cyclops when he wakes up and mistakes her for Jean.
- Glass Cannon: As usually is the case with psychics, her abilities make her a mighty asset but she is lacking in the physical strength department. Quicksilver was easily able to knock her out once before she could even do anything.
- HeelFace Turn: Emma may not have been working for the X-Men per-se, but her goals were always good (stop the Phoenix). It's the Inner Circle who had a FaceHeel Turn when they decided to use the Phoenix as a tool for their own power.
- Heroic Sacrifice: In the final episode, Emma ultimately sacrifices herself to prevent the Phoenix Force from causing destruction. Had the second season happened, she would apparently have returned.
- Hopeless Suitor: Emma has shown great attraction to Cyclops throughout the story much to his obliviousness, being the only to defend his actions by calling him a good person in a world striving to crush goodness, despite Wolverines assertions of how idiotic his actions have become.
- Immune to Mind Control: Emma is able to transform in a diamond form that prevents her from using her own telepathy and renders her immune to anyone else's.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite her aloof behavior and extreme methods, she genuinely cares about the mutant race and her teammates (especially Cyclops).
- Laser-Guided Karma: Emma forces a kiss on an unconscious Cyclops and she gets violently tied down when Jean catches her in the act.
- Love Redeems: She falls for Cyclops hard; as mentioned elsewhere, standard rules apply.
- Manipulative Bitch: Emma is naturally this to the X-Men.
- The Mole: Emma accidentally caused the explosion at the Xavier Institute and stole Xavier's body so that she could buy her way onto the team and eventually have another chance to find Jean. Or more precisely, the Phoenix. Though she did have good intentions...
- Ms. Fanservice: Emma's costume design has gone completely unchanged from one of her comic looks. And considering how she usually dresses... they sure were lucky for being able to do so.
- Most Common Superpower: She's shown to be very buxom through her corset.
- Psychic Powers: She's a very powerful Telepath.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: She's not The Leader, but due to her expertise in what they're dealing with, she will often provide the most advice on the correct course of action.
- Redemption Equals Death: She presumably dies in the final episode through performing a Heroic Sacrifice.
- Second Love: She is set up to be this towards Cyclops but her death makes the development null - made even more null by the series being cancelled.
Beast/Henry "Hank" McCoy
Though blessed with the agility and strength of a great ape, the blue-furred Henry McCoy, also known as Beast, is a mutant who is one of the founding members of the X-Men and has the greatest asset of having a keen scientific mind. Beast possesses a genius-level IQ, with extraordinary expertise in genetics, biochemistry and other subjects. Beast often acts as the voice of reason for Wolverine and the X-Men.
- Amazing Technicolor Population: As in the comics and most versions, he has blue colored skin.
- Badass Pacifist: Just like his comic book counterpart, Beast always offers his foes a chance to surrender.
- Beware the Nice Ones: As always, Beast is a very nice person, but he is still willing to use brute force after offering his foes a chance to surrender.
- Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: Fred Tatasciore as Beast appears to patterned on Kelsey Grammer's Beast from X3
- Genius Bruiser: Beast is a genius, as per usual.
- Handy Feet: One of his most notable powers is superhuman manual dexterity, even in his feet.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With both Iceman and Wolverine.
- Intergenerational Friendship: With Wolverine. Wolvie was born in the 19th century and is old enough to be Beast's ancestor.
- Lightning Bruiser: Not only is Beast strong, but he's also incredibly fast and agile.
- Mutants: He is both a mutant and a mutate and was born a mutant with ape-like features and abilities.
- Natural Weapon: His fangs and claws are weapons.
- Smart People Wear Glasses: He occasionally wears reading glasses and is a genius scientist, despite the fact that it's slightly odd to see a big blue cat/ape thing wearing reading glasses.
- Sophisticated as Hell: As per usual. He always finds ways to make sophisticated references to literature, science, music, and science fiction.
- Techno Wizard: As with most versions, Beast is an X-Man who is an expert in electronics (other than Forge).
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has blue hair that is apart of his fur.
Orphaned at an early age, Ororo Munroe turned to a life of crime to survive on the mean streets of Cairo, Egypt. When her mutant power to control weather patterns emerged, she was worshiped as a goddess by the tribes. Eventually, Ororo found her true purpose at Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, where she helps the X-Men as Storm. Storm is a mutant with the ability to control the weather and create rain, snow, sleet, wind, fog, hail, and lightning.
- Adaptation Personality Change: Storm is more reserved and timid in this adaptation, which is a far cry from her comic book counterpart and most versions (who are usually portrayed as being confident in addition to having warm personalities and the tendency to be Large Hams whenever they are using their mutant powers).
- Adaptational Modesty: As with most media versions of the character, Storm wears a bodysuit instead of the usual Leotard of Power from the comics.
- Adaptational Wimp: In addition to becoming more timid, Storm is prone to getting a Tap on the Head to keep her from easily winning fights and has been knocked out or incapacitated numerous times more often than other X-Men of the show, which is a huge contrast from the Storm from the comics as well as the other animated X-Men series, who was one of, if not the last X-Men to be taken down in a fight.
- Archenemy: To the Shadow King.
- Badass Cape: She has this on her costume.
- Blank White Eyes: She has these whenever she is using her powers.
- Blow You Away: One of the mutant powers that Storm has is to create wind, which she mainly uses in order to fly.
- Combat Stilettos: She has them on her costume.
- Comic-Book Movies Don't Use Codenames: An animated example and a lone Aversion; she's called Storm more often than her real name. Presumably because it's less of a mouthful than Ororo.
- Demoted to Extra: Storm's role in the show is much smaller compared to most versions, despite being a major character in the comics as well as one of the most recognizable members of the X-Men and the main cast in both the comics and nearly all the previous animated adaptations, in order to give Wolvie a bigger role.
- Drama-Preserving Handicap: This tends to happen to Storm in the episodes in which she takes part in battles. She appears, makes a major power play, and is knocked out almost immediately. The writers of the series even acknowledged that she was too powerful to work into their universe properly.
- Elemental Powers: She has complete control over the weather, which gives her the ability to whip up lightning, wind, and ice storms in combat. Hence the name Storm.
- Fisher King: Her mood influences her weather manipulation powers.
- Glowing Eyes of Doom: Her eyes also tend to glow whenever she is using her powers.
- I Believe I Can Fly: She is able to do this with wind.
- Lady of Black Magic: Her mutant powers give her control over the elements, and she's a Physical Goddess and queen with a regal air.
- Mystical White Hair: Just like her comic book counterpart and most versions, Storm has long, white hair.
- Person of Mass Destruction: When the Shadow King too control of her body, he mentioned he could use her to destroy all of Africa with her powers alone.
- Promoted to Love Interest: Storm had a romantic relationship with Angel until his transformation into Archangel. Such a close romantic relationship was never found in the comics or other animated adaptations.
- Reed Richards Is Useless: Zig-zagged. After leaving the X-Men, Storm goes off to Africa and uses her mutant powers to transform vast swathes of the country into working farmland. And then the minute the Shadow King attacks, she drops all this and goes back to the X-Men, to be of no more use whatsoever.
- Ship Tease: With Angel. It is only shown in one episode, though, thanks to the show's cancellation. And it's the episode where Angel is brainwashed and turned into Archangel, no less.
- Shock and Awe: Her most common form of attack, whenever she has any moments to shine that is.
- Spock Speak: It's not as present as the comics and most versions, but she still speaks like this.
- Statuesque Stunner: Storm is tall in height and very beautiful.
- Street Urchin: When she was younger, she lived on the streets and worked for the Shadow King.
- The Worf Effect: A stark contrast to her comic book counterpart and most versions. Most of the time, Storm has been knocked out or incapacitated numerous times more often than other X-Men of the show during the fight scenes.
Angel/Warren Worthington III
Born and raised in affluence, Warren Worthington III, also known as Angel, is a mutant who is one of the founding members of the X-Men and forced to hide who he has become to spare his own intolerant family from embarrassment. As such, he leads a dual life. One playing the dutiful heir to the family fortune, and the other as the mysterious Angel, who uses his abilities to help those in need and is a member of the X-Men. Angel's wings can carry up to twice his weight and can fly him to 29,000 feet at speeds up to 159 mph. His enhanced lungs enable him to breathe at high altitudes and he possesses extraordinary eyesight.

- Winged Humanoid: As per usual, Angel is a mutant with white feathered wings. ( He has a pair of razor sharped wings as Archangel)
- What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: The fact that Angel has "just flight" as his mutant power due to his wings.
Kitty Pryde, also known as Shadowcat, might be a mutant that is able to become immaterial and able to "phase" through solid objects and living organisms, but her devotion to Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters is anything but insubstantial. Enrolled in the school since she was only thirteen, the spunky young mutant called Shadowcat serves as a cheerleader for Xavier's mission and a valued teammate to Wolverine and the X-Men.
- Affectionate Nickname: "Kitty" is a nickname to begin with.
- Animal Motifs: Of cats. But it's mostly in her real and codenames.
- Awesome Mc Coolname: Either her full name Katherine Pryde or her nickname Kitty Pryde, both of them sound cool.
- The Baby of the Bunch: She's the youngest member of the X-Men.
- Beta Couple: She is likely this with Iceman.
- Deadpan Snarker: Not often, but Shadowcat is pretty good when she does. Especially to Iceman.
- The Gadfly: Not above getting on Wolverine's nerves if the situation calls for it.
- Intangible Man: Shadowcat's mutant ability is to phase through solid objects.
- Intangibility: Her main mutant power is to phase through solid objects and living organisms.
- Intergenerational Friendship: With Wolverine and Storm who are older, and Tilde Solmes who is younger.
- Jewish and Nerdy: She's probably still Jewish and she's smart.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Shadowcat can be this with everyone (particularly Iceman), sometimes without even knowing it thanks to her stubborn personality.
- Mythology Gag: Shadowcat's design is inspired by the appearance of her comic book incarnation in the Astonishing X-Men comics and the appearance of the blue and yellow used on her costume emulates that design. The shorts she wears are based off the appearances of the original X-Men along with her first appearance in the comics when she wore a variant of the uniform.
- Pink Means Feminine: She is seen wearing pink at least once.
Bobby Drake, also known as Iceman, is a mutant and one of the founding members of the X-Men. He thinks he's the coolest guy around, but his cockiness may sometimes cause trouble. However, Iceman's mutant ability to project intense cold and convert moisture into ice, forming a variety of icy weapons, protective ice shields and ice slides, has nonetheless made him a valuable asset to Wolverine and the X-Men.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: Iceman has brown hair in the comics. In this series, he has blonde hair (just like he did in Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends) and almost looks like he could be Angel's younger brother.
- Adaptational Sexuality: Iceman is gay in the comics, but it appears that he's straight in this series (which is closer to his original sexuality from the comics).
- An Ice Person: Iceman transforms into an organic ice form, and generates subzero energy to freeze his surroundings, cool and condense moisture in the atmosphere into ice, shaping it into various forms such as snowballs, battering rams, shields, solid blocks, columns, and ice slides.
- Beta Couple: He is probably this with Shadowcat.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Iceman may be very goofy, but he's a powerful warrior through being an Omega-level mutant.
- Deadpan Snarker: As per usual, Iceman has a cool wit to match his personality.
- Elemental Shapeshifter: Iceman originally covered his body with snow. At some point later, He then changed to covering his body with ice and later learned about how to convert his body into organic ice.
- Fun Personified: As with most versions of the character, Iceman is the clown of the X-Men.
- Harmless Freezing: Iceman encases people in ice a few times, but they never have lasting effects from it.
- Older Than They Look: At first, it appears that Iceman is near the same age as Shadowcat (as he was in the movies and X-Men: Evolution), to the point that they may even be in a relationship, but a later episode shows that he's a founding X-Man, just like he is in the comics.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: He controls his transformation from his human form to that of organic ice.
- You Fight Like a Cow: Iceman usually uses Witty Banter in combat situations.
Raised by numerous foster families, the young woman known only as Rogue has learned to look after herself. Her mutant ability to drain the life energy, memories and powers of anyone she touches forced her to keep those she cared about at arm's length, literally. Rogue has found a home at both Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters and Wolverine and the X-Men.
- Anti-Villain:After her FaceHeel Turn.
- Bad Powers, Good People: Removing energy from others is generally something evil characters tend to use, but Rogue tries her best to make it a temporary borrowing boost rather than a selfish draining power.
- Blessed with Suck: Yes, technically the ability to copy other mutants' powers by touching them makes her very adaptable, but draining people's life energy whenever she touches them is about as sucky as it gets. And absorbing 'everything else about that person, including memories and personality traits. And she can't not do so, rendering her incapable of having any sort of intimate relationship.
- Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: Kieren van den Blink as Rogue evokes her film actress Anna Paquin.
- Can't Have Sex, Ever: She's unable to touch any one without her gloves (or with any exposed part of her body for that matter), or else she will absorb their powers, life energy, and memories.
- Civvie Spandex: Rogue wears a yellow, leather bomber jacket over a pair of tights as her uniform.
- Crying Wolf: The rest of the X-Men accuse Rogue of this after she left to join the Brotherhood supposedly to spite Wolverine. Once she gleaned information from Toad's mind, she quickly rushes back to warn her old team, who naturally don't believe her due to their past encounters where she set them up.
- FaceHeel Turn: [[spoiler: After she was revealed to be an apparent The Mole. Though it is ultimately revealed to be a
- HeelFace Turn: Rogue reveals that she only joined the Brotherhood in order to infiltrate them, because she learned some unpleasant things from Toad's mind.
- Instant Expert: Rogue is temporary this to the Brotherhood.
- Life Drain: Part of her powers is she will suck the life force out of them.
- The Mole: Played with.
- Initially, Rogue looks like this in Hindsight Part 2. She pretends to join the Brotherhood, but is working with the X-Men against them. But this is all a ploy. She's really working with the Brotherhood to use the X-Men to help push the anti-mutant agenda, thus justifying further anti-human activities by the Brotherhood and pushing along the path to war.
- Later, in Battle Lines, Rogue reveals that all of that was part of her plan; she was on the X-Men's side all along. She read some disturbing things from Toad's mind, so she decided to hook up with them to keep an eye on them. She even tried to tell the X-Men about it once in a prior episode, but Logan wasn't there, which pissed her off enough to not bother.
- Mythology Gag: Her X-Men uniform is similar to the costume that she wore in the X-Men Animated Series while her casual clothing is closer to the version in the X-Men Film Series.
- Not as You Know Them: Rogue's loyalties in this series have been switched from the comics and previous animated incarnations. Usually she is part of the Brotherhood because she has no where else to go, then she joins the X-Men. Here, it's the other way around.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: As with the other animated adaptations, Rogue is never referred to by her real name from the comics, Anna Marie.
- Parental Substitute: Just like in the films, Rogue thinks of Logan as this. Or at least, as an absentee-version of it, since he keeps leaving for days or weeks at a time.
- Power Copying: As per usual, she can take other mutant's powers.
- Power Incontinence: As with the other versions, this is a problem for Rogue.
- Skunk Stripe: Rogue retains this on the front of her pony tail.
- Southern Belle: It's not as emphasized as the comics and most versions, but it's still present.
- We Used to Be Friends:With the X-Men after her FaceHeel Turn.
Because of his demon-like appearance, the only place that circus performer Kurt Wagner, also known as Nightcrawler, ever felt truly welcome was at Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. Nightcrawler is a mutant that is able to teleport himself and a limited amount of extra mass over short distances. This mischievous, German-born mutant consistently proves himself a major asset to Wolverine and the X-Men.
- Adorkable: Just like his comic book counterpart, he is this in addition to being a hero.
- Amazing Technicolor Population: As per usual for the character, Nightcrawler has blue colored skin.
- Badass Preacher: He's a devout catholic, but also a firm force for good.
- Beta Couple: Nightcrawler occasionally had this type of relationship with Scarlet Witch.
- Beast and Beauty: He is the beast while Scarlet Witch is the beauty.
- Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: Liam O'Brien's Nightcrawler was partially inspired by Alan Cumming's portrayal from X2.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Nightcrawler grew up hunted by angry mobs and tormented for his devilish appearance until Xavier came to offer his help.

- Does Not Like Shoes: The unique shape of Nightcrawler's feet make most shoes uncomfortable at best.
- Dual Wielding: Or rather, triple wielding, due to his prehensile tail.
- Handy Feet: His feet are shaped very much like his hands.

- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Wolverine, just like in the comics. After escaping from Genosha, Nightcrawler is basically his Number Two.
- Hope Spot: Congratulations, Nightcrawler. You performed a Multistage Teleport from Genosha all the way to the Institute. Why, one of your good friends is there to meet you and—oh, it's just Mystique in disguise.
- In-Series Nickname: Wolverine's own personal nickname for him is "Elf". He tries to use this to snap a brainwashed Wolverine back to his senses.
- Master Swordsman: He's shown to be this against his fight with Mojo's pirates.
- Monochromatic Eyes: Just like her comic book counterpart, he has yellow iris-less eyes.
- Nice Guy: One of the nicest characters on the team and the whole show.
- Oblivious to Love: It appears that he has no idea just how badly Scarlet Witch is into him.
- Poirot Speak: Nightcrawler speaks in a German accent and occasionally uses German words and phrases in his speech.
- Prehensile Tail: His tail can serve as a third arm for holding a weapon.
- Rousing Speech: Just as Xavier helped him all those years ago in helping him see he wasn't a freak, but was gifted. He in shares this wisdom with mutant refugees children, asking them to tell him their "gifts".
- She Is Not My Girlfriend: Nightcrawler says this about the Scarlet Witch, who is visibly sad about that.
- Ship Tease: He tends to have this with Scarlet Witch.
- Signature Sound Effect: The "BAMF" sound effect of his teleports.

- Teleporters and Transporters: As per usual, this is Nightcrawler's primary super-power.
- Teleport Spam: Not surprising considering he's one of the most well-known examples of this trope. Nightcrawler has used this to disarm enemies or to land hits from multiple directions.
- Took a Level in Badass: Nightcrawler is decidedly more badass here than he appears in other adaptations.
- Wall Crawl: One of the mutant powers that Nightcrawler most commonly uses in the series. The other one being teleporting.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is blue and apart of his fur.
Forge is a mutant with a superhuman talent for inventing and repairing mechanical devices. While even the greatest inventors must work out the principles and designs of their inventions, the ideas for Forge's inventions spring fully formed from his mutant mind. He is the main technician at the X-Mansion and has a bionic right hand and left leg.
- Butt-Monkey: Forge is often the source of comedic misfortune in the team, often having to repair machines his teammates destroy and constantly having to fix the Blackwing.
- Chew Toy: He has to constantly see his things broken, gets treated with no respect (particularly by the other X-Men), and is generally shoved around by life.
- Ditzy Genius. Forge is the tech-wizard who keeps the X-men's more advanced gear running, including the Blackbird and the Danger Room, but he's also a total ditz.

- The Engineer: The team's resident gadget guy.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: His real name is unknown.
- Non-Action Guy: Forge spends more time working on the X-Men's technology than in field missions. He is even conspicuously absent when the Brotherhood attacks the mansion, only showing up after the fight (Which Shadowcat calls him out on).
- Race Lift: Forge appears to be a Caucasian instead of a Cheyenne Indian just like his comic book counterpart. He even gets whiter as the series goes on.
- Techno Wizard: Forge is an expert in electronics and is the go-to member when it comes to gadgets and engineering.
Jean Grey is a mutant born with telepathic and telekinetic powers and one of the founding members of the X-Men. She has the mutant ability to read the thoughts of others, influence and control their minds, project her mind into the astral plane, and generate telepathic force blasts that can stun enemies. She can also lift and move objects telekinetically and create telekinetic shields. Jean is also missing due to an explosion.
- Adaptational Wimp: Jean gets the sadly usual treatment of existing solely for the sake of the threat of the Dark Phoenix and is reduced to living MacGuffin.
- Apocalypse Maiden: Being the vessel for the Phoenix Force, she could lay waste to the Earth if she wanted to.
- Battle Couple: With Cyclops, particularly in the flashback.
- Betty and Veronica: She's the Betty to Emma's Veronica in relation to Cyclops.
- Beware the Nice Ones: As per usual, Jean is sweet, motherly and level-headed. But if you were to wrong her or her loved ones (such as Cyclops), then you are in for a world of psychic pain.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: Jean is capable of getting very jealous, particularly when Scott/Cyclops is around Emma.
- Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: Jennifer Hale as Jean Grey evokes the sound of her film actress counterpart Famke Janssen.
- Demoted to Extra: In this series, Jean has been reduced to being nothing more than a plot device.
- Designated Love Interest: She's this to Cyclops (for the few minutes that she actually appears).
- Deus Exit Machina: She and Professor Xavier suffering from comas inflicted to them from a bomb in the pilot episode during the shows run kept major plots from being resolved far too quickly with their all-powerful telekinesis and telepathy respectively.
- Flight: She is able to use her telekinetic powers in order to do this.
- Fiery Redhead: Just like in the comics and most versions, Jean has red hair.
- Glowing Eyes of Doom: When she is using the Phoenix Force.
- Heroes Want Redheads: Cyclops and Wolverine are both attracted to the red-headed Jean.
- High-School Sweethearts: With Cyclops, as per usual.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Conveniently when she appears in the show after her disappearance, she doesn't remember anything.

- Mindlink Mates: With Cyclops.
- Mind over Matter: As per usual, Jean is able to lift and move objects telekinetically with her mind.

- Victorious Childhood Friend: Jean may or may not count as this reclaiming Cyclops for herself at the end - though it may be more like Victorious Teenage Friend.
- Violently Protective Girlfriend: As a teenager, Jean went toe to toe with Magneto to save teen Cyclops may count, but probably even more so as an adult when she (justifiably) violently throws Emma Frost up against a wall and binds her there with pipes for kissing an unconscious Cyclops. And in between that briefly going into Phoenix mode when Cyclops almost gets knifed by Archangel.
- What Does She See in Him?: It's evoked (though never outright asked by any of the cast) with Jean in regards to Cyclops, mostly due to the fact that Cyclops is not portrayed with any admirable traits.
- What the Hell, Hero?:
- This is pretty much Jean's reaction to Cyclops zapping Wolverine after Wolverine hit on her without knowing she made the clawed one promise her he wouldn't fight Cyclops.
- Jean has this reaction towards Cyclops again in the series finale when he tries to take on the Phoenix - though that time she was trying to save his life.
Bishop is a mutant and the leader of Professor X's band of mutant freedom fighters in the apocalyptic future. Bishop's mutant ability allows him to absorb energy directed against him and project it from his body as concussive force. He can also utilize it to enhance his strength, increase resistance to injury, and boost his recuperative ability.

- The Leader: He is one of the leaders of the X-Men from the apocalyptic future.

In the apocalytic future under Master Mold's rule, Domino lived in a mutant detainment camp until Professor X's arrival, where she joined the resistance for freedom. Just like her present counterpart, she apparently has the ability to influence the laws of probability and mainly relies on her marksmanship and hand-to-hand abilities..
Hellion is a member of the future X-Men team who has the incredibly strong ability of telekinesis.
Kamal was a prisoner of the mutant camps in the apocalyptic future. He was found by Charles Xavier and helped the two of them and other mutants escape by using his power to absorb the metals of the Sentinels.

Professor Xavier's meets her here, and soon after escaped with Professor X and the rest of the team. She has the mutant ability to enhance the growth of her skeletal structure. Her mutant physiology allows her to rapidly regrow the bone spurs which protrude from her body, which she uses as weapons. She utilizes this power in many ways, including the creation of knuckle guards, spears, and projectile spikes.
- Body Horror: Her mutant power is to grow bones out of her body, usually in the form of outward jutting spines or claws.

At some point, the X-Men from the apocalyptic future met Polaris who repaired and employed the Sentinel, whom they named Rover. Marrow was good friends with Rover, often helping him to destroy the more modern Sentinels, and scrapping them to perform further repairs to his badly-damaged condition. After Bishop planned to use Rover to distract five Sentinels, Marrow became enraged and ran away with Rover, however they still ended up aiding the X-Men, Rover destroyed two Sentinels, before getting a hole blasted into his chest, and a hand blown off. The Sentinel continued to fight, and killed the remaining Sentinels, however he was finally get killed himself when a pack of the smaller Wolverine-based Sentinels climbed all over Rover.

Brotherhood of Mutants
Pietro Maximoff, also known as Quicksilver, is Magneto's son and has always been desperate to win his father's approval. He is crushed when instead it's given to his sister Wanda (The Scarlet Witch.) As such, he resents her, though she tries to help him improve his relationship with Magneto. Quicksilver is the de facto leader of the Brotherhood. He possesses the mutant ability to run at superhuman speeds over great distances. With speeds of over 175 mph, he is also able to create a whirlwind by running in a circle.
- Adaptational Villainy: Much like in Ultimate X-Men and X-Men: Evolution, this Quicksilver is a willing servant of Magneto, even after Scarlet Witch and Polaris decided they're done with Erik's crap.
- Deadpan Snarker: Just like Magneto.
- The Dragon: In addition to being the leader of the Brotherhood, he (along with Scarlet Witch and to a lesser extent Polaris) serves the role as this to Magneto.
- Hidden Depths: As Adaptational Villainy shows, when Magneto is banished from Genosha Quicksilver decides to stick with the patriarch of his family, showing the family loyalty his sister's fail to.
- Hot-Blooded: His temper is as quick as everything else about him.
- Jerkass: Quicksilver is an arrogant, self-centered jerk.
- The Leader: Of the Brotherhood of Mutants. However, Magneto had secretly orchestrated the actions of the group by giving orders to Quicksilver, but he was not officially part of the group.
- Lightning Bruiser: Of the "hard-hitting speedster" variety. His enhanced physiology makes him far more durable than he appears, and he can very easily beat someone half to death before they can even react.
- Mythology Gag: His costume is very similar to the costume that his comic book counterpart originally wore in the comics.
- Mystical White Hair: Subverted. Although he is a mutant with powers, his white hair is simply inherited from his father Magneto.
- Not Even Bothering with the Accent: Quicksilver lacks his comic book counterpart's Eastern European accent due to the fact that he was actually raised by Magneto in this series.
- Super Speed: His main mutant power.
- Took a Level in Dumbass: Though much of it is Magneto's complaints, the whole near-disaster with Nitro, where he didn't stop to think that maybe bringing a mutant whose uncontrollable power is blowing up onto his dad's precious mutant haven isn't such a good idea. Especially when the best he can do to try and control said mutant's power is to have an inexperienced telepath — who even warns him she's never tried anything like this before — tinker with the mutant's brain. If the X-men hadn't intervened, Quicksilver would have been personally responsible for the deaths of half the mutants on the planet.
- Undying Loyalty: Unlike Wanda and Lorna, who throw Erik out of Genosha in the finale, Pietro stays loyal to Erik.
- The Unfavorite: And Erik doesn't even try to hide that he prefers Wanda and Lorna over Pietro.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Despite his best efforts, Quicksilver can never get Magneto to cut him any slack, or even recognize he might be useful at anything. To be fair, though, he is a complete idiot.
- White Hair, Black Heart: He has white hair and is an antagonist member of the Brotherhood of Mutants.
- Would Hit a Girl: Has no problem fighting women, even slammed Emma Frosts face into a pillar to knock her out to emphasize that fact.
Originally from Greece, Dominikos Petrakis, also known as Avalanche, landed on the streets of New York at an early age and has survived for years by aligning himself with other mutant misfits. Avalanche has the mutant ability to generate vibrations from his hands that can bring down buildings and cause earthquakes.
- Boring, but Practical: Both his powers and the man himself. Much less flashy and dramatic than other X-villains featured in the series, Avalanche is pretty much the definition of a Punch-Clock Villain.
- Cool Helmet: It's not quite as cool as Magneto's or Juggernaut's, but it still counts.
- The Dragon: He serves the role as this in the Brotherhood.
- Elemental Powers: His mutant abilities; namely, generating earthquakes.
- Dishing Out Dirt: His mutant power is a fairly high-end version of this.
- Evil Foreigner: Along with Pyro, he is an evil mutant featured in this series from a non-American country, Greece in his case.
- Person of Mass Destruction: Due to his earthquake-generating powers.
- Truer to the Text: He is much more faithful to his comic book counterpart than his previous animated version was.
Fred Dukes, also known as Blob, firmly believes that just by virtue of being a mutant, he has the right to be treated as a superior. In actuality he's only a part of the dysfunctional Brotherhood because they needed a heavy lifter. He has superhuman strength and durability and his huge body can absorb projectiles from bullets to artillery shells, and is impervious to injury.
- Acrofatic: He is as agile and maneuverable as any normal-sized man.
- Barrier Warrior: An unusual variant where the "barrier" is his own Nigh-Invulnerable body.
- The Brute: Serves as the Brotherhood's muscle.
- Dumb Muscle: Not the brightest, but strong enough to serve as The Brute for the Brotherhood.
- Fat Bastard: As per tradition, the Blob is overweight and a thug.
- Giant Mook: He is considerably taller than a human being and much, much fatter.
- Gravity Master: The Blob is able to alter his own personal gravitational field to root himself to a spot and become immovable while taking advantage of his incredible durability and resistance to harm.
- Implacable Man: He's unmovable.
- Kevlard: It is a wonder where he purchased his unitard from.
- Lightning Bruiser: The Blob is quite a bit faster and more agile than he looks.
- Nigh-Invulnerability: Part of his "core trinity" of powers; he's extremely hard to hurt due to his extreme girth, he has Super Strength, and he can fix himself in place so he can't be moved.
- Stout Strength: He is able to lift large objects due to his size.
- Villain Team-Up: He's associated with the Brotherhood.
- Villainous Glutton: As with most versions, his girth is part of his mutation.
Of all the mutant powers a person could get, Mortimer Toynbee, also known as Toad, got his from the bottom of the genetic barrel. His tongue can stretch up to 25 feet and he has the ability to leap great heights and spit a green adhesive substance from his mouth. It's no wonder he envies everyone else's powers with such pathos. But the bottom line is Toad is thrilled to be hanging with the Brotherhood, no matter what they make him do.
- Animal-Themed Superbeing: Toads, obviously.
- Butt-Monkey: The show loves to crap all over Toad, as he frequently ends up captured by the MRD and even admits at one point that the Brotherhood is better off without him in the field.
- The Chew Toy: Toad is one of the most humiliated, embarrassed and ridiculed characters on the show.
- Composite Character: He's basically 616!Toad with Ultimate X-Men!Toad's appearance.
- The Load: Toad's this to the Brotherhood. He repeatedly gets captured and needs his teammates to break him out. They were actually going to let him rot in "Time Bomb" before he told them about Nitro.
- Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Seriously, Toad never gets a win.
- Super Spit: He often exhibits various powers related to a goo that he occasionally spits it as a weapon.
- Sycophantic Servant: As per usual, Toad is also this to the Brotherhood.
- Truer to the Text: Despite the fact that he has the appearance of the Ultimate version of the character, this version of Toad is still much more faithful to his comic book counterpart than the X-Men: Evolution version was.
- The Friend Nobody Likes: Toad is this to the Brotherhood, who are shown to be weary of his presence and have attempted to leave him to rot in an MRD prison at one point.
- Undying Loyalty: Toad stands by the Brotherhood, no matter what. Even during the battle with the Sentinels, he stayed with them.
- Wall Crawl: One of his mutant powers.
Neena Thurman, also known as Domino, is a member of Magneto's Brotherhood who has precise marksmanship and luck. During Rogue's short stay with the Brotherhood, she forms a sort of bond/friendship as the only women in the Brotherhood and are usually seen together. She acts as the voice of reason on the team, contrasting to Quicksilver's impulsive leadership. She apparently has the ability to influence the laws of probability, but she mainly relies on her marksmanship and hand-to-hand abilities.
- Adaptational Villainy: While an ally of the X-Men in the comics, this Domino is a member of the Brotherhood.
- Charles Atlas Superpower: Domino has probability altering powers, but she mainly relies on her marksmanship and hand-to-hand abilities.
- Cold Sniper: Uses a specialized rifle to attack targets and all too willing to snipe down targets with sadistic glee.
- Evil Genius: Domino is one of the smartest members of the group.
- Goth: This is her fashion style. She rocks the look.
- Improbable Aiming Skills: She is very skilled at aiming and shooting at objects or people.
- Mutant: She is one with the abilities of influencing the laws of probability, but she mainly relies on her marksmanship and hand-to-hand abilities.
- Token Good Teammate: To the Brotherhood. She's actually with Bishop's team in the Bad Future.
While Professor Xavier seeks to prevent violent conflict between mutants and non-powered humans, his one-time friend Erik Magnus Lehnsherr welcomes it. After surviving extreme persecution as a child, the embittered mutant called Magneto came to believe that his species were the rightful inheritors of the Earth. His mutant ability to control the forces of Magnetism makes him a rousing leader to the mutant nation of Genosha and a formidable foe for Wolverine and the X-Men.
- Adaptational Villainy: 616!Magneto has been a Well-Intentioned Extremist and even Anti-Hero at times since Chris Claremont's time on the book. Between disregarding Xavier's warnings about the future and sending Mystique to impersonate Kelly, having Mystique!Kelly send the Sentinels out to Geonsha to attack mutants to rally more of them to his cause, and reprogramming the Sentinels to attack humans, this Magneto is basically a kid-friendly version of Ultimate!Magneto or Xorneto.
- Affably Evil: As with some versions, Magneto is a gentleman in his pursuit of mutant freedom.
- Antagonist Abilities: As always, his mastery of magnetism gives him a number of abilities which opponents have trouble circumventing.

- The Chessmaster: As with most versions.
- Cool Helmet: As per usual, He wears one that protects him from psychic intrusions.
- Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: Tom Kane is very much channeling Ian McKellen's protrayal of the character from the X-Men Film Series.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: He handed one out to the X-Men in "Hindsight: Part 3".
- Dark Messiah: As per usual, Magneto will use any means necessary to bring mutants back into dominance.
- Disproportionate Retribution: A Papa Wolf mode Magneto has thrown people in jail for simply kissing his youngest daughter Polaris
- Enemy Mine: He and Senator Kelly had a deal in which the MRD would deport all their captives to Genosha. The deal ended when Magneto learned that Kelly was secretly keeping the most powerful mutants under lock and key.

- I Believe I Can Fly: As mentioned above, Magneto is able to fly thanks to his Magnetism powers.
- Imagination-Based Superpower: Magnetism is capable of anything in his hands.
- Immune to Mind Control: He has a special helmet that prevents him from being mind-controlled. A most useful tool when his arch nemesis (Professor X) is one of the most accomplished psychics in the world.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Even if his methods reach far into the depths of villainy, Magneto desires nothing but a world where mutants are free from the hand of racism dealt by man and he had a loving relationship with his daughters Scarlet Witch and Polaris before his the full length of his evil was revealed.
- Knight Templar: In order to let mutants roam free, he plans to have millions of mutants and humans alike killed.
- Magnetism Manipulation: Just like his comic book counterpart and most versions, this is Magneto's main mutant power. In the show, he has an application for manipulating metals like molding them and moving them about or punting them as projectiles, but he can do other things with it like Flight (via repulsing Earth's magnetic pull), make Force Fields, and Telepathy resistance.
- Manipulative Bastard: As per usual, Magneto always tends to plan before he goes into a fight, and even when surprised, he adapts pretty quickly.
- Never My Fault: Magneto refuses to assume that his actions may have harmed more of his fellow mutants and hurt the cause of mutant rights more than they have ever helped; he only pins the blame for that on humanity.
- Not Even Bothering with the Accent: As with the other adaptations, Magneto lacks any sort of European accent here. Although, Tom Kane sounded like he was trying to pull off an English accent, if anything.
- Not Quite Flight: Controlling magnetic lines of force enables him to levitate.
- Overprotective Dad: Only to Lorna.
- Papa Wolf: He does not take Senator Kelly's hiring of Gambit to attack Genosha lightly, mainly due to the fact that it was an attack on the island where his family members (Scarlet Witch and Polaris) and a large amount of mutants were living on.
- Related in the Adaptation: While Chuck Austen's run had revealed that Polaris was biologically his daughter, the series implies he actually raised her in this universe.
- The Rival: To Charles Xavier, as always. It is a result of their differing views on whether mutantkind and man can live in peace or not.

- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Magneto has committed a lot of atrocities, but they're driven to protect his loved ones and his fellow mutants from harm.
- We Used to Be Friends: As per usual, Magneto and Professor X were initially best friends until they broke off due to their different opinions (Erik believed they are with mutants poised to become the dominant force while Charles believed that mutants and humanity are not enemies). As of now, they are currently Friendly Rivals and enemies.
Wanda Maximoff, also known as Scarlet Witch, is the sister of Quicksilver and daughter of Magneto. Her brother is often jealous of her relationship with their father Magneto - as she is obviously the favored among the two. Scarlet Witch is a mutant who possesses "hex bolts," which give her the ability to affect probability fields to cause unlikely events to occur, and can make objects spontaneously burst into flames, rust or decay.
- Adaptational Villainy: Much like her Ultimate Marvel incarnation, this Scarlet Witch is willingly working with Magneto. Though her interactions with Nightcrawler and Magneto's actions in the finale trigger a Heel Realization and Calling the Old Man Out.
- Badass Cape: Scarlet Witch wears a nice dark red cape as a part of her costume.
- Beast and Beauty: She is the beauty while Nightcrawler (Kurt) is the beast.
- Beta Couple: Scarlet Witch briefly had this type of relationship with Nightcrawler in the episode "Greetings from Genosha" when they teamed up to fight against Fever Patch.

- Calling the Old Man Out: She does this to her father after he decided to begin the very war that Xavier warned him about and ended up nearly triggering the end of the world.
- The Dragon: She (along with Quicksilver and to a lesser extent Polaris) serves the role as this to Magneto.

- Lady of Black Magic: Just like her comic book counterpart and most versions, Scarlet Witch wears an elegant red costume (along with beautiful red dress in an episode) and has mutant powers that use chaos magic.

- Ms. Fanservice: Scarlet Witch is a very beautiful brunette who wears a skin-tight costume that has a corset.
- Mutant: Just like in the comics and other animated adaptations, she is a mutant with the ability to project "hex bolts" that give her the ability to affect probability fields to cause unlikely events to occur and can make objects spontaneously burst into flames, rust or decay.
- My Sister Is Off-Limits!: She does this to Gambit when she finds out Polaris kissed him. She even throws him in prison.
- Not Even Bothering with the Accent: Scarlet Witch lacks her Eastern European accent from the comics due to the fact that she was raised by Magneto in the show.
- Ship Tease: With Nightcrawler.
- Truer to the Text: This Scarlet Witch is much more faithful to her comic book counterpart than the previous version was.

Lorna Dane, also known as Polaris, is Magneto's overprotected daughter and the younger half-sibling of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. She is a mutant who has the power to control magnetism and can shape and manipulate magnetic fields that exist naturally or artificially. With this ability, most metals come under her control.
- Adaptation Personality Change: Lorna's comic incarnation has never had any desire to join or work with her father, outside of one period where she was horrifically traumatised. Also, this Lorna is also a timid shut-in.
- Break the Cutie: In the apocalyptic future, she saw her father, all her friends, her home, and her father's very dream wiped out in a sea of fire, and the last thing she saw was when her dad gave her his helmet and cape and dropped her down a shaft to shelter before the flames incinerated him.
- Broken Bird: In the Bad Future.
- Calling the Old Man Out: Joins Scarlet Witch in tossing Magneto out of Genosha after his actions in the finale.
- Curtains Match the Window: She has green eyes and hair. Not to mention she wears green lipstick and a green costume.
- Deus Exit Machina: Future!Polaris traveling with Bishop and Xavier's group of mutants would have reduced the Sentinels from major threats to cannon fodder due to her magnetism powers, so she has to stay behind in the same episode she was introduced. Justified due to her being a total Broken Bird who is so mentally scarred she can't bring herself to actively fight Master Mold, and she's too powerful for the "Future X-men" to seriously consider dragging her along by force.
- I Believe I Can Fly: With electromagnetism.
- Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter: Just like her comic book counterpart, Polaris (along with Scarlet Witch) is the beautiful daughter of Magneto, who is a skilled scientist in addition to being a powerful mutant.

- Rebellious Princess: In contrast to her comic book counterpart.
- Related in the Adaptation: While Lorna being Erik's daughter (and by extension, before AXIS, Wanda and Pietro's sister) was canon for a few years by this point, the show implies Magneto raised her.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: In the Bad Future, Polaris is freakishly powerful, but also haunted by the deaths of her family.
As Magneto's number one operative, Raven Darkholme, also known as Mystique, is a committed champion of the mutant cause. She fervently believes in Magneto's vision for the future, for she too has witnessed the dark side of humanity and how it deals with those who are different.

- Hive Mind: Just like their comic book counterparts, they share this.
- In the Hood: The Cuckoos each wear robes that have hoods on them.
- Psychic Link: The Cuckoos form a psychic gestalt that links all their minds together to magnify their powers.

Senator Robert Kelly is a politician who takes a decidedly anti-mutant stance and views them as a threat to humanity. He worked with Bolivar Trask to create the Sentinels, starting with the Sentinel Prowlers. He pushed for the Mutant Registration Act and supported the Mutant Response Division.
- Antagonistic Governor: Antagonistic Governor in this case. He is this towards the mutants as with most versions.

- Large Ham: Being a politician, this comes with the territory.
- Only Sane Man: Senator Kelly is notable for being pretty much the only one of the numerous characters to fill the "anti-mutant politician" role in this series who is allowed to have a realistic and layered opinion on mutants, as opposed to being just a frothing Strawman Political.
- Super Registration Act: The Mutant Registration Act, his signature legislative bill that he is trying to get passed.
Warren Worthington II
Warren Worthington II is a rich man and the father of Angel. He also funds the M.R.D., which causes disputes between him and his son. After his son nearly killed him and destroyed his company for taking his wings, he regretted of his decision to fund Kelly's anti-mutant campaign.
- Composite Character: Of both the version of himself from X-Men: The Last Stand (funds a cure for mutants and anti-mutant programs, tells himself that he only wants what's best for Warren despite the truth otherwise, has a Heel Realization about his actions) and Cameron Hodge (in addition to funding anti-mutant programs, he's the cause for the lost of Warren III's wings and by extension Warren III's FaceHeel Turn).
- Corrupt Corporate Executive: He finances senator Kelly's anti-mutant campaign platform, and provides the MRD's R&D and hardware as well; needless to say, his son disagrees vocally. Unfortunately, by the time he realizes he's being a gigantic dick, it's too little too late, both to stop the anti-mutant movement from becoming a viable political and paramilitary force on its own and to save his son from becoming Mister Sinister's brainwashed minion, leaving him with nothing but now cold and empty financial and material comforts and a mountain of regrets.

Bolivar Trask is a scientist working for Senator Robert Kelly alongside Dr. Sybil Zane on creating the Sentinel Program.
- Anti-Villain: Trask never even says, far less does, anything obviously "evil," personally, and all his villainous actions are motivated by his very genuine desire to save humanity from mutants, that he considers (mistakenly, but far from wholly unjustified) a deadly danger to its very survival.
- Ascended Extra: In the comics, Trask has appeared in only a couple of stories over some fifty years of continuity, not counting flashbacks. He has a major role in this adaptation.

- Nothing Personal: Trask has nothing personally against the mutants, or any individual mutant; he just viewed mutantkind, collectively, as a threat against humanity, even if there were decent individuals among them.
