X-Men

First Seen: January 2015




A proactive force designed to stop mutant terrorism and face hostile organizations. The X-Men represent the main arm of Xavier's in first contact and threat response. X-Men teams are flexible, deploying in groups based on the optimum power mix and abilities. A group of senior X-Men take over the leadership role in the field, again based on best suited to the circumstances. X-Men deploy for a wide range of issues, some of which are humanitarian, some combat based, and some are about safeguarding other mutants. Essentially maintaining a similar force as now with a similar mission, but willing to be more proactive and covert in the face of a much less supportive public.

Details

During Erik's time as co-headmaster at the school, he pushed for a more martial angle to powers training, teaching the students to fight with their powers as well as control them, leading to the creation of the Danger Room. Charles was reluctant - the concept was contrary to his dream of coexistence - but he agreed that in an anti-mutant world, their students needed the ability to protect themselves and others. Following their schism in 1994, Charles not only continued this training, but began plans for a strike force, fearing the path Magneto was heading down and seeing the need to be ready to counter him.

The team - called the X-Men after a school joke - was officially formed in 1999, with Cyclops as its leader. It was none too soon, with Magneto and his Brotherhood of Mutants attempting to turn the world's leaders into mutants in November of 2002, and then in May 2003, joining forces (briefly) with the team against William Stryker and his plan to kill all mutants. The X-Men were able to stop both incidents, although it wasn't an easy task.

Membership is entirely voluntary, but does require a minimum level of training and fitness. Recruits are taken from the Generation X members, as well as from individuals with previous training who come to the mansion. Each member is required to do regular comms room duty, scanning various media and law enforcement sources for potential issues, and to participate in regular Danger Room training, both as individuals and as teams. Dominion and Cyclops are responsible for programming the training scenarios.

The X-Men work in conjunction with the other teams, often following up on information provided by X-Force in situations too large for them to handle, or providing back up for X-Factor (or passing on cases that they don't have the resources to follow up). And of course, when the students get in trouble, it's all hands on deck to get them out again.
