Synopsis: Professor Charles Xavier founded a school to teach young mutants how to control their powers and his dream is to unite mutantkind with humanity in peaceful coexistence. The dream is not yet a reality as humans fear and hate mutants because of their incredible powers. Xavier created the X-Men from his first class of students as a response team to help those mutants in danger and oppose mutants who wish to harm humanity. The team has operated for several years and the roster of active members has changed many times. Xavier himself is the world's most powerful telepath.
|The X-Men team - from left to right: Wolverine, Cyclops, Phoenix,|
Professor X (seated), Storm, and Beast
- Cyclops - Scott Summers can project powerful optic blasts, but they are only held in check by his special ruby-quartz visor. The epitome of a cool-headed, tactical leader. He and Jean Grey are sweethearts since their school days at Xavier's
- Phoenix - Jean Grey is an omega-level psychic with powerful telepathic and telekinetic abilities. She is strong-willed and kind. She and Scott Summers are sweethearts since their school days at Xavier's
- Beast - Hank McCoy is a walking contradiction. His mutation gives him a fearsome appearance yet he possesses a vast intellect and gentle heart. Undergoing a secondary mutation later in life his power levels increased and his appearance became more feline
- Storm - Ororo Munroe lost her parents in tragic accident when she was young. She grew up on the mean streets of Cairo as a thief until her mutant weather-controlling abilities manifested. Charles Xavier found her being worshiped as a weather goddess in Africa
- Wolverine - An enigmatic brawler with adamantium-laced skeleton, six massive claws which can extend from his forearms, and a near-instantaneous healing power. He cuts first and asks questions later. Holds an unrequited love for Jean Grey
|The two mutant lovebirds - Jean Grey and Scott Summers|
|Jean Grey loses control of her Phoenix powers and becomes Dark Phoenix|
|"Hasn't Scott been a total jerkwad since Jean died?" "Yeah, I didn't think|
the stick could go up any farther." "Good one, Wolverine!" "Thanks,
Beast!" "Guys. I'm standing right here."
|The X-Men discover Emma Frost protecting a young mutant. Apparently |
it's totally normal for mutant educators to wear outfits like hers.
|The team heads back to Japan to reinvestigate the area|
|Hisako and Emma Frost join the X-Men|
|Wolverine prepares to inflict some damage|
|Storm manifests lightning to protect Hisako and Emma Frost|
|Cyclops unleashes his optic blast|
|Hisako powers up her psionic armor for battle|
|We get a brief cameo of everyone's favorite Archangel|
