The main characters of X-Men Evolution Seasons 5-10.
Professor X/Charles Xavier - Shortly after the fight with Apocalypse, a new student arrived at the Institute, Jim, the son Logan never knew he had. As time goes on, Xavier tries to calm the anger that lies in Jim and has him go on a mission with Wolverine that results in X-23 joining the X-Men. Xavier also had Rogue and Jim have the same schedules as he sensed a bond between them. Thanks to a chip created by Magneto to allow his followers to block out telepathic abilities, Xavier was tricked when Sabertooth attacked the Mansion and was knocked out when Rogue touched her, and said that Magneto was planning to attack the White House. A week later, Xavier was checking on Washington to try and find a Brotherhood scout, but he couldn't find one and realized that it must have been a hoax as Magneto would never leave a targeted attack area unscouted. He was then knocked out by Mystique and held prisoner in the Savage Lands while a new recruit of his named Nos took Xavier's place to avoid suspicion. Xavier is imprisoned in a cell that stops him from using his telepathy to call the X-Men. Xavier was then saved by the X-Men after Nos is found out, and he makes it to the Blackbird with them. He then relaxes at the pool with the others. When Kurt and Laura go to the future and return, they tell everyone that Apocalypse will return in a year. Xavier suggests simply work as hard as they can during training and also to live their lives. Xavier later told Jim about an abandoned military complex at Alkali Lake following a shared dream Jim had. Xavier ended up knocked out and captured when Weapon XI invaded the Mansion. He was then held in the base with a neural inhibitor on his head. Xavier's eventually released by Wolverine and the Brotherhood. He then confirmed that a mammalian monster that Wraith unleashed on them was indeed Liger. Xavier is then evacuated once Liger remembers who he is. Several weeks later, Xavier informs Rogue, Nightcrawler, and Liger about an odd energy signature and has them investigate. When the three X-Men returned, they informed Xavier about a fight with the Hulk and the Brotherhood, and Xavier approves of them letting the Hulk go and comments about how they all have come a long way. Xavier later calls the X-Men to the living room where the news reports that Kelly's being held hostage by the Red Skull. After the X-Men work with Captain America to save Kelly, Xavier reports that working with him has greatly boosted the local area's opinion of Mutants though Kelly still supports the Mutant Registration Act.
Wolverine/James "Logan" Howlett - After the defeat of Apocalypse, Logan discovered that a new student at the Institute named Jim was his son from before Weapon X occurred. When Jim arrives, he gets in a fight with Wolverine before Jim's knocked out by Rogue. Wolverine is later sent on a mission with Jim as a way to help forge a bond between the two, and they find X-23 in the woods. After a fight with Sabertooth, with help from Jim and X-23, they return to the Mansion, their mission a success. Wolverine joined in the fight with the X-Men, and he held Liger back when he tried to attack Sabertooth while he was unconscious. Logan then ran a Danger Room session that ended with everyone trapped by Magneto and Mystique as a way to help them not underestimate the enemy. When Nos arrived as the Professor, he was able to copy Xavier's scent, so Logan wasn't able to tell he was different. The next day, he went to the White House with the other X-Men in time to see the White House blow up and several Sentinels arrive. Wolverine is one of the few X-Men not to be captured, and Nightcrawler teleports them to the Mansion. Wolverine then confronts the fake Xavier as he realized that he knew that would happen, and Xavier reveals himself to be Nos. When Nos tricks Kurt into letting him escape, Logan and Scott confront him, but they're paralyzed by Nos, and they and the others barely make it out of the Mansion when Nos initiates the self destruct sequence. Logan then calls in a favor from Fury to allow the X-Men that were captured by the Sentinels to be released. Wolverine then leads the X-Men to the Savage Lands, per Jean's instructions, and helps Jim escape from Mystique. Then while the rest of the X-Men go to save Charles, Wolverine ends up fighting Sabertooth and easily beats him up by the time the X-Men come back with the Professor. When Mystique blocks the exit, Wolverine simply stabs her in the stomach in a knock out blow. Once they return to the Mansion, Fury helps rebuild it, and Wolverine thanks him. Logan's later saved by a stink bomb assault when Jim tells him where the clothes from the class are. Logan agrees with Xavier when they learn that Apocalypse returns and simply states that they have to live their lives and wait. During Christmas Eve, Logan assured Rogue that he was sure Jim was planning on getting her something. On New Years Day, Jim told Logan that he and Rogue were going to explore the mountains. When Weapon XI attacks the Mansion, Logan takes down most of the soldiers and orders Laura to run. He then extends his claws and prepares to fight to the last when a colonel appears that seems to know him from seventeen years ago. He's then separated from him by Laura as she begs him to come with her. Logan then accepts that, but he's caught in the Mansion when the colonel blows it up. Wolverine managed to shield Laura and Howler from the explosion before he passed out. He recovered after Jim and Rogue arrived and remembered the name of the man who invaded the Mansion, John Wraith. In charge of Weapon X, when Wolverine escaped, he slashed the colonel's face. Logan later reprimanded Laura as being a year too young to use profanity. After recruiting the Brotherhood's help, Logan remained with them while Jim, Rogue, and Laura looked for the Weapon XI Base. Two weeks later, Logan met a Japanese woman who began to make out with him until he realizes that she's Mystique. Logan then refuses her advances and tells her to get out. Suddenly, his X-Link beeps, and he learns that Jim and Rogue had found the Weapon XI Base. Wolverine then used the Blackbird to the location of Scott's bike and arrives at the Weapon XI Base. Wolverine then guesses that Liger, Rogue, and X-23 have been gone for an hour due to the scent. Wolverine then ran into Howler, and they followed him into the base. Once inside, Wolverine fought Sabertooth, who had just been given four Adamantium claws. Wolverine called him a copycat and managed to stab him in the chest. Wolverine then convinced Sabertooth to take them to where the X-Men were held and helped save them. There, Wolverine met Deathstrike. When a monstrous version of Liger attacked Deadpool, Wolverine distracted him by punching him in the stomach. Wolverine's then saved by Rogue when she gets through to Jim. After that, Wolverine discovers that the Blackbird isn't responding. Jim then simply flings the Blackbird away from the Weapon XI base. After that and after Jim returns to normal, he hands Logan a file about his life. The next day, Logan thanks Fury for helping them rebuild the Mansion, mentioning that Jim and Laura were at school. Logan is present during the news report of Mayor Robert Kelly's abduction by Red Skull. Logan then explains who the Red Skull is to Jim and explains that the only man who could contend with him was Captain America. When Nick Fury arrives, Logan is told that a Mutant blood sample will stabilize Captain America's blood to allow the super serum to co-exist with Captain America's existing DNA. Logan then volunteered immediately, giving some of his blood and reviving Captain America. Wolverine then went Captain America and the X-Men to City Hall to rescue Kelly and defeat Red Skull. When Captain America pinned Red Skull by tossing his shield, Wolverine commented that it got old fast.
Storm/Ororo Monroe - Storm went with the X-Men to the mission to the White House and arrived just in time to see it blow up and several Sentinels appear. She uses the wind to toss a shorted out Sentinel into the ocean. She is one of the few X-Men not to be captured, and Nightcrawler teleports them back to the Mansion. Ororo manages to escape with the other X-Men when Nos has the Mansion self-destructs. She then goes with them to Washington as Fury helps release the captured X-Men and goes to the Savage Lands. She then returns home after Xavier's saved. She then relaxes at the pool with the others. Storm's captured by Weapon XI when they attack the Mansion. Storm is saved by Wolverine and the Brotherhood. She ends up stopped by a monstrous version of Liger, but he remembers who he is and helps the X-Men escape.

Storm then went with Captain America and the X-Men to City Hall to rescue Kelly and defeat Red Skull.
Jean Grey - After Logan's estranged son, Jim, tries to attack him and fails, Jean lifts him up to take him to his room. Jean, along with Scott, helped teach Jim in an extra Saturday course as Jim was already a senior in high school. Jean asks Jim to tell the class about himself, but Jim just extends and retracts his claws to make his point. Jean joined in the fight with Sabertooth when he attacked the Mansion, but she didn't have time to do much. Jean Grey participated in the Danger Room simulation battle with the Brotherhood and easily held her own. The next day, she went with the others to the attack on the Mansion and tried to encourage Jim by saying that as long as they were working together, they could win. When it was revealed to be a hoax when the White House exploded and several Sentinels arrived, Jean is one of the few X-Men not to get captured, and Nightcrawler teleports them to the Mansion. Jean and Kurt go to interrogate Nos, but Nos tries to trick Kurt into releasing him. Jean tries to warn Kurt against it, but Kurt ends up giving Nos some of his blood, so Nos is able to teleport like Kurt. He then cuts Jean's cheek and licks some of her blood to be able to use her abilities. Once he activates the Mansion's self-destruct system, Jean and the other X-Men manage to escape. She then goes with the others to Washington after Fury's able to release the captured X-Men. She then uses her telepathy to ask Jim where he is, and he explains where the Savage Lands are. She then uses her abilities to paralyze Mystique while Rogue uses her abilities to figure out where the Professor is. Once that's done, Jean goes with the X-Men to save the Professor. They succeed and manage to leave without too much trouble. After that, they all relax at the pool, and Jean joins in with the others to encourage Rogue to jump in. When Jean learns from Kurt and Laura that Apocalypse will return in a year and make her, Scott, Warren, and Logan into Horsemen, she hopes that since they're aware of it, it won't happen. Jean also appears to be the team doctor as she appeared to be in charge of Jim when he was seriously injured during a trip up the mountains. When Jim returned from a trip to Canada, Jean welcomed Jim home and asked him what he'd like for lunch as a sort of welcome home party. After Jim and Rogue left, Jean was captured by Weapon XI when they attacked the Mansion. Jean shared a cell with Cyclops and Gambit. Jean is saved by Wolverine and the Brotherhood. She ends up stopped by a monstrous version of Liger, but he remembers who he is and helps the X-Men escape. Jean is present during the news report of Mayor Robert Kelly's abduction by Red Skull and the introduction of Captain America. Jean then went with Captain America and the X-Men to Red Skull's castle to rescue Kelly and defeat Red Skull. When Jim was lying on the couch later, Jean asked him to play baseball with them, but Jim refused.
Cyclops/Scott Summers - After the defeat of Apocalypse, Scott began to really take his role as a teacher seriously as he teaches a Saturday Course with Jean for the advanced students. Jim rubbed Scott the wrong way the first class there as he made fun of Scott's curriculum to learn when or when not to use one's abilities. He later confronted Jim a week later as he easily aced a test after barely looking at the book or paying attention when Rogue explained that Jim simply had a photographic memory. Cyclops later joined in the fight with Sabertooth and reminded Liger that they weren't to kill Sabertooth. Scott participated in a Danger Room simulation battle with the Brotherhood and was able to hold his own. The next day, her went on the mission to the White House and arrived just in time for the White House to blow up and for a horde of Sentinels to arrive. As the fight goes into the city, Cyclops blasts one Sentinel down as Liger shoves a reporter, Mystique in disguise, out of the way. Cyclops is one of the few x-Men not to get captured, and Nightcrawler teleports them to the Mansion. Scott goes with the others to try and stop Nos when he escapes, but Nos easily activates the self-destruct system and escapes. They manage to get out before the Mansion blows. Once Fury's able to release the captured X-Men, Cyclops goes to the Savage Lands to help rescue the Professor. They succeed with minimal difficulty and escape. Scott then relaxes at the pool and encourages Rogue to jump in. Scott was later asked by Jim how to get stink bomb stink out of the gang's clothes, but they didn't find it. When Scott learns that in one year, Apocalypse will return and turn himself, Jean, Logan, and Warren into Horsemen, he hopes that knowing about it will help it stop happening. Scott's bike was later stolen by Jim when he took it to go to an abandoned military complex he dreamed about. Scott casually welcomed Jim back before he tossed the keys to his bike to him, claiming it needed gas, which Scott replied by telling him to fill it up, which Jim purposely translated into taking it with him to look for the new Weapon XI base. Scott then ended up captured when Weapon XI attacked the Mansion. Cyclops shared a cell with Jean and Gambit. Cyclops is saved by Wolverine and the Brotherhood. He ends up stopped by a monstrous version of Liger, and he tries to have Rogue step aside to be able to use an optic blast on him, but Rogue refuses and helps him remember who he is and helps the X-Men escape. When Jim then throws Scott's bike at the Weapon XI Base to destroy it, Cyclops is shocked. Scott is present during the news report of Mayor Robert Kelly's abduction by Red Skull and the introduction of Captain America. Cyclops then went with Captain America and the X-Men to City Hall to rescue Kelly and defeat Red Skull. Once Captain America took Red Skull down by tossing his shield, Cyclops noted that he'd always wanted to see that.
Nightcrawler/Kurt Wagner - During the beginning of his junior year of high school, Kurt met a boy named Jim who was a Mutant with powers similar to his father, Logan. He then had a training session with Jim fighting Juggernaut. Kurt then explains that X-23 would be something of a sister to Jim on the eve the two of them were due to find her. Kurt is also Jim's roommate at the Institute. Nightcrawler joined in the fight with Sabertooth, but he didn't have time to do much. Kurt participated in a Danger Room simulation battle with the Brotherhood, but he ended up pinned by metal bars and was sprayed with a goop that stopped him from teleporting. The next day, Nightcrawler went with the X-Men to the White House in time to see it blow up and several Sentinels flying at them. Nightcrawler's one of the few X-Men not to get captured, so he teleports the other survivors back to the Mansion. When Kurt and Jean go to interrogate Nos, Kurt ends up feeling sorry for him and gives him some of his blood to help him survive, and Nos ends up escaping and activating the Mansion's self destruct system. The X-Men manage to escape just in time. Kurt then accompanies them to DC when Fury has the captured X-Men released. Nightcrawler then goes to the Savage Lands to rescue the Professor and Jim. They manage to save the two with minimal difficulty, and they manage to escape just as easily. They then relax at the pool, and Kurt joins in at encouraging Rogue to jump into the pool. He then advises them to swim for their lives when Jim accidentally pops Kitty's floater. Kurt shared a Sunday science class with Hank with Jim, Rogue, and Laura. After the attack on the White House, they made a stink bomb, and the thing went off, and they had to change their clothes. Kurt was then the fastest at climbing the rope in Gym the next day at Bayville High. He also got to watch The Clone Wars with Jim and Laura at the end of the day. After pulling a prank on Laura, he runs from her, and they both end up in a wormhole that takes them twenty-four years into the future where they learn from an older Rogue and Magneto that in one year, Apocalypse would return and destroy most of the X-Men and the Brotherhood, causing the remnants to team up with several humans to create the First Alliance of Men and Mutants. After learning that, they work with the First Alliance to save the Mutant who brought them there, Timewarp. When Jean, who was turned into a Horsemen, attacks, she's knocked unconscious by the future Rogue, and Nightcrawler uses an invention of Magneto's called the neural inhibitor to deactivate Jean's powers for awhile and free her from Apocalypse's control. He then returns to the present with Laura after saving Timewarp. After telling the X-Men about what they learned, they're told to simply work their hardest and live their lives. When Kurt learned that Laura didn't like Christmas that much, he teleported to SHIELD to look for Dr. Riesman, and he then gives Laura a picture of Dr. Riesman with a note from her, and Laura thanks Kurt. Kurt was playing Duel Monsters with Remy against Rogue and Laura the day Jim left for Canada. When Weapon XI began attacking the Mansion, Kurt teleported around to fight them, and gets them to knock each other out in the process, but he ends up captured as well. Nightcrawler is saved by Wolverine and the Brotherhood. He ends up stopped by a monstrous version of Liger, but he remembers who he is and helps the X-Men escape. The next day, Kurt meets his new vice principal, Yuriko Oyama-Howlett. Nightcrawler was then sent with Rogue and Liger to investigate an odd energy signature at the Canada-US border. When the trail began with a large crater with two large feat in them, Nightcrawler began to get nervous. Nightcrawler then witnessed Bruce Banner become the Hulk and knock Liger away. Nightcrawler then helped Raven teleport everyone to where Liger was. When he realized that they were fighting the Hulk, Nightcrawler had very little belief in the success of the mission. After Rogue incapacitates the Hulk, Nightcrawler is knocked out by Deadpool. Nightcrawler then finds himself held prisoner in a rebuilt Weapon XI base he helped destroy shortly beforehand now controlled by the Brotherhood. Nightcrawler was then disgusted when Deadpool flirted with Rogue. Nightcrawler was then released by Jim's estranged mother, Yuriko. He was against saving Banner due to the dangers involved in being near him until Liger and Batman pointed out that they had too. He then witnessed Gray Hulk attack Liger until he becomes the normal Hulk again. They then go after him when he runs off. Nightcrawler then wonders what it's like to be the Hulk. Following that, Nightcrawler teleports everyone out of the base as Hulk destroys it. After the Hulk is subdued again, Nightcrawler returns to the Mansion with the others and adds that Jim especially has changed from his time there, which earned him a punch in the shoulder. Kurt is present during the news report of Mayor Robert Kelly's abduction by Red Skull and the introduction of Captain America. Nightcrawler then went with Captain America and the X-Men to Red Skull's castle to rescue Kelly and defeat Red Skull. Shortly after this, Kurt whispered something to Laura.
Rogue - During the beginning of her senior year of high school, the new principal, Sean Cassidy, has Rogue show around a new student, Jim. She also takes him to the Institute where he gets in a fight with Logan with Adamantium claws. Rogue touched him to stop him, but instead of passing out, Rogue simply gains Jim's powers. She then knocks Jim out, and she explains to the Professor and Wolverine how Jim is Logan's son, and how he and his mother were kidnapped when Jim was one, and they accelerated his mutation and it strengthened to the point where he could be bonded with Adamantium at two, and he wouldn't be hurt by Rogue's abilities. Rogue then convinced Jim to stay. Just before Jim goes to find X-23, Rogue explains that she's an altered clone of Wolverine. Rogue was given the same schedule on Saturday as Jim as the Professor saw a connection between them that he thought would be important later on. When Scott confronted Jim about acing a test without really studying, Rogue explained that Jim had a photographic memory, which she found out from the details in his memories. She and Jim then run into Remy, who has decided to join the team. The three then go out for lunch. When Sabertooth attacked the Mansion, Rogue used her abilities to stop Sabertooth from causing too much damage. She then found out that Magneto planned to attack the White House in a week and that Jim's mother was recaptured and had her memories taken away. She then kicked Sabertooth in the side for forcing her to have to shave her legs two nights in a row. Rogue participated in a Danger Room simulation battle with the Brotherhood when she was trapped by a metal bar that pinned her face to face with Jim. The next day, she encouraged Jim with the idea that the Professor could be able to find his mother and arrived with the others at the White House just as it blew up and several Sentinels attacked them. Rogue was saved from a Sentinel by Liger, and she tried to rescue a captured Liger from Mystique when she was captured by the Sentinels. She was then displayed by Gyrich as a terrorist and was slapped when she tried to say that they were set up. Rogue is freed by Fury, and she tells Logan that Jim was captured by the Brotherhood. She then flies with the X-Men to the Savage Lands to rescue Jim and the Professor. After Jean paralyzes Mystique when they find Jim, Rogue uses her abilities to discover that the Professor is four levels below them. Rogue then goes with the X-Men to save the Professor. They succeed with minimal difficulty and escape the same way. They then relax at the pool. Rogue's reluctant to come in at first until Jim, Remy, and everyone else encourages her to go in. She does, and the sweater she's wearing to reduce the risk of touching someone becomes very see through. Rogue tried to be a peacekeeper between Jim and Laura when they began squabbling, but it didn't go to well. She was part of the Sunday science class with Hank and made a stink bomb there, but she had to change her clothes when the thing went off. At Bayville, Rogue and Jim had the same Drama class, and they were paired together to practice a scene from Beauty and the Beast. As they do that, they have a tender moment until Laura interrupts. She then smiles when Jim and Laura begin to make peace. When she learns about a prank Kurt pulled on Laura, she suggested Kurt run. He and Laura then ended up going to the future and coming back. When she learns that Apocalypse will return in a year and turn Jean, Scott, Logan, and Warren into Horsemen, all she's interested in is learning about her future daughter. This continues into the week preceding Christmas, to the point where Jim commented on how Rogue had been acting like she was already pregnant since then, which stopped her for a bit. The next day, Rogue gave Jim an early birthday present, a dog tag with his Mutant name on it. Rogue then asked Jim what he got her, which she guessed was nothing from his nerves. A few days later, Christmas Eve to be exact, she continues to guess right as Jim hasn't given her anything and spends his time talking to Bobby. Once the big day comes, Jim gives Rogue an ice rose that he had Bobby make and used chemicals in the Science class to make a coating, so that it'd always keep it's shape. Rogue then kissed Jim on the cheek and gained the knowledge that the doctor who helped Jim escape was named Laura. On New Years Day, Rogue went with Jim to the mountains for an exploratory adventure. When they went into a cave, Mystique attacked them, and when Jim was kicked over a cliff, Rogue jumped down to save him, and Jim then saved her when they fell into a river, and Jim used his claws to get them to the bridge, leaving him dangerously injured in the process. When Mystique attacked again, Rogue absorbed Jim's abilities and fought her off. She then used the bone claws she gained from the absorption to get back to the bike with Jim, and when he woke up three hours after the fight, Rogue then thanked him for saving her and had him go to sleep while he rested then gave him another kiss on the cheek. Shortly after this, Rogue had a dream about Jim's early life, including how he and his mother were captured, the early activation of his abilities, and how Jim's mother, Yuriko, helped him escaped with Dr. Laura Wilson. The dream ended with Laura dying when Jim was seven and his screams. This woke her up, and she went to Jim's room as he was screaming. Rogue then comfort Jim by saying that his mother was beautiful. The next day, she broke away from playing Duel Monsters with Laura against Remy and Kurt in favor of going to a leaving Jim. She was then given the dog tags she gave Jim for Christmas as a way to assure Rogue that he'd be back. She then places the dog tags in her pocket and quietly asked Jim to come back soon. A few weeks later, Rogue is thumb wrestling with Remy when he moves in to kiss her, but Rogue turns her head, claiming that she doesn't want to hurt him. She then rushes to Jim when he returns home. She's then introduced to a wolf-puppy Jim found named Howler. Rogue then gives Jim his dog tags back. When she learns that Jim's going off again tomorrow, Rogue demanded to go with him. The next morning, Rogue and Jim rode off to look for Weapon XI. An hour out of Bayville, Rogue and Jim got a distress call from Laura an an X-Link before riding off home. Rogue then questioned Jim's cheery attitude when he finds out about the attack, and he reveals that Wraith was also in charge of Weapon XI and has his mother. Rogue then asked what their next step was and was skeptical of Jim's plan to get help from the Brotherhood. After doing that, Rogue went with Jim and Laura to look for Weapon XI with Howler. Two weeks later, Rogue, Jim, and Laura found the base. Following informing Logan about their location, Rogue went with Liger and X-23 into Weapon XI. Rogue then went with X-23 to save the other X-Men. On the way, they were stopped by a member of Weapon XI named Deadpool as well as Sabertooth. Deadpool defeated Rogue and took her to where the X-Men were imprisoned. Rogue and X-23 are later joined by Deathstrike when she tries to attack Wraith for mutating Liger. Rogue is saved by Wolverine and the Brotherhood. Rogue also questioned Deadpool's willingness to kill Jim when he was a baby. She ends up stopped by a monstrous creature that Rogue learns from the professor is Liger. Rogue then stops Liger from killing Wolverine and shielded Liger from Cyclops, and she reminds him who he is. Liger then helps the X-Men escape. After escaping, Rogue hugs Liger and exclaims how she knew he would do the right thing. Once Jim returned to normal, the two returned home. The next day, Rogue met her new vice principal, Yuriko Oyama-Howlett. Later, Rogue called Howler a good boy when he played tug-a-war with Kitty's sock, which landed her in a bathtub. Rogue then went with Liger and Nightcrawler to investigate an odd energy signature the Professor discovered as she and Liger knew the area of the US/Canada border like the back of their hands thanks to the search for the base. When Liger was knocked away by the source of the energy, the Hulk, Rogue asked if he was okay, and Liger answered with a yes after relocating his arm. When Hulk began seriously beating Liger down, Rogue grabbed Hulk's arm after removing one of her gloves and became a female version of the Hulk, ripping her sleeves and pant legs in the process. She also learned that Banner was turned into the Hulk when he was exposed to Gamma Rays, which she called bright lights due to a severe decrease in intelligence from absorbing the Hulk. She also admitted that she didn't like this form. She was then knocked out by Deadpool with a tranquilizer. Rogue was then imprisoned in a rebuilt Weapon XI base where the Brotherhood were operating out of. She then remarked that if Magneto was helping Banner, then she was going to be the next Miss Mississippi. Rogue was then freed by Jim's mother, Deathstrike and went to help the Hulk. Rogue then begins to tear up while the Gray Hulk begins choking Liger, which snaps him back into his normal Hulk form. As the team follows the Hulk out, Rogue is suddenly held at gunpoint by Deadpool until Liger destroys his gun with his claws. Rogue later knocks Sabertooth out by using her powers, which gives her her Sabertooth look again. Rogue's then teleported out of the base by Nightcrawler when Hulk destroys it again and then saves Liger from the Hulk by absorbing his powers again as well. As the other heroes left, Rogue was told by Liger to drop Banner off in Michigan before they left. Rogue was then congratulated by the Professor and complimented on how far Rogue has come since joining the X-Men. Rogue is present during the news report of Mayor Robert Kelly's abduction by Red Skull and the introduction of Captain America. Rogue then went with Captain America and the X-Men to Red Skull's castle to rescue Kelly and defeat Red Skull. After dinner, Rogue noticed that Jim wasn't happy about the outcome of the battle and tried to offer talking to Jim, but he refused. When Jim comes back, Rogue hugs him, stating she was worried about him. She then asks if something's wrong after looking at Jim's eyes. At school, Rogue points out to Jim that he isn't eating, but he only takes a few bites. When Jim sits out a game of baseball, Rogue asks again if Jim's alright. She later confides her worries about Jim to Remy when he steals a kiss from her. However, Jim catches them do this and runs out as Rogue screams for Jim to come back.

Shadowcat joined in the fight with Sabertooth but didn't get the opportunity to do much. She participated in a Danger Room simulation battle with the Brotherhood and managed to hold her own. She then went to the White House with the others in time to see it blow up and for the Sentinels to attack. Shadowcat shorted out one that Storm then threw into the sea with the wind. Shadowcat ended up captured by the Sentinels and displayed by Gyrich as terrorists. Shadowcat is freed by Fury and goes with the rest of the X-Men to the Savage Lands to save Jim and Xavier. They manage to make it to Xavier's cell, and when X-23 cuts the door away, Shadowcat remarks at how useful it is to have three Mutants like Wolverine. They then escape easily. Once back home, they relax at the pool, and Kitty joins in at encouraging Rogue to jump in. When Jim chases after Laura, he accidentally pops the floater Kitty was on, and she starts chasing after the two of them. At school, she is the slowest to go up the rope, so she has to buy the gang pizza due to a bet Kurt made. Kitty later learns from Kurt and Laura that Apocalypse would return in one year. Kitty indirectly agreed with Jim about Rogue acting like she was already pregnant for a few weeks after she heard the news about her having a daughter.

Remy then asked Jim how he swiped Scott's keys to his bike, and Jim explained that he swiped them when Scott wasn't looking. Remy then complimented Jim's skills as his own way to say good-bye. A few weeks later, Remy was thumb wrestling with Rogue and tried to kiss her when Rogue kissed her head, claiming not to want to hurt him when Remy asked if she really didn't want to hurt Jim. The next night, when Weapon XI attacks the Mansion, Remy saves Laura from a solider by knocking him out with his pole. He then ends up captured by Weapon XI. Gambit shared a cell with Jean and Cyclops. He took comfort in the fact that Liger, Rogue, and X-23 were still out there until Deadpool, Sabertooth, and Deathstrike brought the three in. Gambit is saved by Wolverine and the Brotherhood. He ends up stopped by a monstrous version of Liger, but he remembers who he is and helps the X-Men escape. During a sparring match in the Danger Room, Jim catches Remy's staff with his claws. When Kelly was kidnapped by Red Skull, Gambit asked who the one person who could help them was. After that, he's introduced of Captain America. Gambit then went with Captain America and the X-Men to Red Skull's castle to rescue Kelly and defeat Red Skull. After a baseball game that Jim sat out on, Remy points out that Jim's being a couch potato before asking how Rogue is. While she answers, he kisses her. However, Rogue ends the kiss when she finds out Jim saw.
X-23/Laura Howlett - After the fight with Apocalypse, the Professor sent Jim and Logan to find X-23 and bring her into the X-Men before Magneto got her. X-23 was in a foggy glade with pine freshener to hide her scent. When Wolverine and Jim arrived, X-23 decided to go with them when Sabertooth arrived and tried to take her by force. Wolverine fights Sabertooth off long enough to allow Jim and X-23 to get to the Blackbird and cause Sabertooth to be forced away as Wolverine jumps on. X-23 arrives and takes the human name of Laura to symbolize a new life for her as an X-Woman. X-23 joined in the fight with Sabertooth but didn't get the opportunity to do much. Laura participated in a Danger Room simulation battle with the Brotherhood and ended up trapped in the simulation Sabertooth's bear-hug. She then went with the X-Men on their mission to the White House and arrived in time to see the place blow up and several Sentinels. She was captured along with several other X-Men and displayed as a terrorist by Gyrich. X-23 is released by Fury, and she and the rest of the X-Men go to the Savage Lands to save Jim and Xavier. She then personally saves Xavier by cutting out a whole in the cell he was in and wheeling him out. They then escape easily. She then relaxes at the pool, and Laura joins in with encouraging Rogue to come into the pool. It works, and Laura teases Jim when he looks at Rogue's now transparent sweater. Laura later yelled at Jim on Sunday when he took forever in the bathroom, mostly to comb his hair, and she's even more angry at him when he leaves a large amount of dead skin from his foot in the bathtub. She later attended the Sunday Science class she took with Jim, Kurt, and Rogue where they made a stink bomb that went off and got on their clothes. The next day at Bayville High, where she was a Sophomore, she was the fastest up the rope at 30 seconds. She then interrupted a tender moment between Jim and Rogue to ask if they were done yet. She and Jim then got into an argument about whether they would watch The Clone Wars or a 15-year-old news story about the Hulk. Laura then shouted at Jim about how he was being such a jerk. Jim then apologized about everything he did and consented to watching the Clone Wars, and Laura said that they could watch the Hulk thing next. Soon after, Laura was pranked by Kurt when he woke her up at 5:30am, and she chased after him when they both ended up in a wormhole that took them twenty-four years into the future. She then learns that a villain from the X-Men's past, Apocalypse, will return one year from the present and destroy most of the X-Men and the Brotherhood. She and Kurt are then told by the Magneto of that time to warn the X-Men. When the Mutant who brought them there, Timewarp, is kidnapped, X-23 and Nightcrawler decide to help them out. X-23 then fights against a Wolverine that fell under the control of Apocalypse, and he knocks her down. She then manages to escape back into the present with Kurt and warns the X-Men. She's then questioned by Rogue about the daughter she has in the future. When Christmas time got near, Laura became very moody as it was around Christmas that she was given the adamantium treatment. at Christmas, Kurt then gave her a picture of Dr. Riesman, who was the only one at Hydra who really cared for her, and a note from her as well, which she thanked Kurt for. When Rogue and Jim returned from a mountain trip with Jim greatly injured, Laura shed tears for her pseudo-brother. Laura was playing Duel Monsters with Rogue against Remy and Kurt the day Jim left. A few weeks later, Laura arrived to head out with Jim and Rogue, but Jim refuses due to numbers and needing someone to watch Howler. She reluctantly agrees and lets them leave again. She then plays fetch with Howler until Weapon XI arrives. She's then saved from them when Gambit slams his staff down on one of the soldiers. She then ends up one of the only X-Men left fighting with Logan, and he yells for her to escape as she takes Howler. When Logan is confronted by a colonel, Laura triggers a trick wall to come down and begs for Logan to come with her, which he does, but they're both still in the mansion when the colonel blows it up. Laura is shielded by Wolverine, and when he passed out, Laura called Jim on an X-Link. When Jim and Rogue returned, Laura told how the colonel attacked, and when she learned that the colonel, named John Wraith, was in charge of Weapon XI, she swore, which earned her a reprimand from Wolverine. Laura then explained the situation to the Brotherhood. She then confirmed that Kitty was caught to Lance. Laura then went with Rogue and Jim to find the Weapon XI base. Two weeks later, they found it at the Canada-US border. After infiltrating the base, X-23 was given files on Wolverine and Deathstrike by Liger to keep safe. On the way to free the Professor, X-23 and Rogue were confronted by Deadpool and Sabertooth. X-23 was then beaten up by Sabertooth and taken to the other X-Men. X-23 later gains Deathstrike as a cellmate when she attacks Wraith for mutating Jim further. X-23 is saved by Wolverine and the Brotherhood. X-23 then calls Deadpool a disturbing man when she hears how he was willing to kill Jim when he was a baby. She ends up stopped by a monstrous version of Liger, but he remembers who he is and helps the X-Men escape. The next day, Laura meets her new vice principal, Yuriko Oyama-Howlett. Laura is present during the news report of Mayor Robert Kelly's abduction by Red Skull. After learning that only Captain America could stop the Red Skull, Laura commented that Magneto was doomed until she was introduced to Captain America. X-23 then went with Captain America and the X-Men to Red Skull's castle to rescue Kelly and defeat Red Skull. At school shortly afterwards, Laura and Kurt were whispering something to each other.
Liger/James "Jim" Howlett - The son Wolverine never knew he had. He was conceived shortly before Wolverine was kidnapped by Weapon X. There, his mutation was accelerated, so he'd develop it at one, and it got strong enough that he was given the Adamantium treatment at two. His mother managed to have him escape with a doctor, but she died and Jim spend thirteen years alone. He then met Sean Cassidy outside of Bayville, and he helped him meet some of Charles Xavier's students and was taken to the Institute. He then attacked Logan when he showed up with his claws, but Rogue used her abilities to take Jim's, and she used her temporary claws to knock Jim out. Jim was then taken to her room, and Jim decided to stay after a talk with Rogue. Jim was soon sent on a mission with Wolverine to bring X-23 to the X-Men. When they find her, Sabertooth arrives, and Jim goes feral in an effort to kill him as Sabertooth stopped his mother from escaping Weapon X with him. When Wolverine took over the fight and ordered Jim and X-23 to get on the Blackbird, Jim used that as an excuse to help Wolverine when he shoots lasers at Sabertooth to allow Wolverine to jump on. He then drove the Blackbird back to the Mansion and had a rough landing. Jim began a Saturday course and made fun of Jean and Scott in the class. He later aced a test thanks to his photographic memory and met a new X-Man, Gambit. Remy, Rogue, and Jim later went off to lunch when Jim explained that he decided on his Mutant name, Liger. Liger joined in the fight against Sabertooth and was knocked into Wolverine and through the wall where he needed to relocate his arm. When he learned that his mother was still alive but lost her memory, Liger extended a toe claw he had and kicked Sabertooth in the beans. Jim then participated in a Danger Room simulation battle with the Brotherhood. He ended up wrapped in metal and face to face with Rogue. Liger then goes with the X-Men on the mission to the White House and arrives in time to see it blow up and for several Sentinels to arrive. When Cyclops blasted down a Sentinel, Liger saved a reporter from the fall, but she ended up being Mystique and captured him. Jim is brought in front of Magneto, and he tries to coerce Jim to his side, but Jim refuses, but he pretends to think about it when Jean tells him that the X-Men are on their way. They then rescue him from Mystique, and Jim then fights off Nos when he tries to stop the X-Men. He easily remains in control even with Nos' new Sabertooth abilities, and he kicks him away as the others show up. They then escape easily with the Professor and return home. Jim then relaxes at the Mansion and asks Rogue to come in. After some encouragement, she does, and Jim ends up starring at Rogue's transparent sweater and ends up chasing a teasing Laura and popping Kitty's floater. They then end up running from her. Jim then ends up being yelled at Laura the following Sunday for taking so long in the bathroom, and later for leaving the dead skin from his foot on the floor. He later has a Sunday Science class with Rogue, Kurt, and Laura where Hank teaches them how to make a stink bomb. The thing blows up, and they all have to change clothes. The next day, he practices a scene from Beauty and the Beast with Rogue for drama class. They then begin to have a tender moment when Laura interrupts, they then argue over what to watch when Jim wants to watch a news story about the Hulk and Laura wants to watch The Clone Wars. After hearing how Laura thinks that he's a jerk, Jim gives in and they both watch what Laura wants and they agree to watch what Jim wanted next. Jim let's Laura chase after Kurt as he figures that they'll work things out. He then learns from them that in one year, Apocalypse will return. Upon learning this, Jim became very nervous over the fact that he was due to die in either a year or some time after that. When Rogue gave him a dog-tag with his Mutant name on it, Jim got nervous as he wasn't used to giving gifts, so he had Bobby make him a rose, and put a coating on it in the science class to make sure it wouldn't melt. He then gave it to Rogue, who kissed him on the cheek as a thank-you. On New Years Day, Jim took Rogue to the mountains for a non-world shattering adventure, when they ended up fighting Mystique. Jim was then saved by Rogue when he was kicked off a cliff, and he saved her when they got caught in a stream, severely injuring himself in the process. He then had Rogue borrow his abilities to stop an attacking Mystique and was taken home by her. He woke up three hours after their little adventure, healed but told to rest by Rogue on orders from Jean. Jim later dreamed about his early life. It began when Jim was a year old, and he and his mother were kidnapped by Weapon XI. The dream then cuts to when Jim was two, and a colonel put Jim in the enhancer that activated Jim's mutation. The dream then skipped to when Jim was four, and Yuriko planned for his escape with Dr. Wilson and how she sacrificed her freedom to make sure Jim and Laura escaped Sabertooth. He then cried for his mother as Laura comforted him. The dream then ended with when Laura died of malnutrition, and Jim screamed as his claws came out. Jim was later woken up by Rogue and after she left, Jim looked at a picture of himself and his mother. He then talked to the Professor about his dream, and they determined that where Jim and Yuriko were taken so many years ago was on Alkali Lake. Jim then prepared to leave and gave Rogue his dog tags to show her that he'd come back. He then used keys he swiped from Scott to ride his bike to Canada. Once there, he finds that the base has been abandoned. The only thing he finds is a wolf-puppy that he takes back to the Mansion with him. He's then greeted by Rogue. After that, he introduces her to Howler and lets him run around the Mansion. He then says hello to Scott and Jean and says that he doesn't care what's for lunch. He then tells Scott that his bike needs gas, but Scott told him to fill it up, so Jim determines to do it when he heads out in the morning. He then reluctantly agrees to take Rogue with him. He then refuses to let Laura come as three's more easily tracked than one and because he needed someone to look after Howler. He then headed off with Rogue. An hour after leaving Bayville, Jim was called by Laura on a communication device called an X-Link and told that almost all the X-Men except herself and Wolverine were captured. He then returned home on the bike, using a turbo setting. At the Mansion, Jim learned that John Wraith had led the kidnapping, and Jim was in high spirits due to the fact that Wraith was in charge of Weapon XI. Jim then went to the Brotherhood to ask for help since they'd need more help to attack the Weapon XI base and for Magneto to organize it. Jim also pointed out that the Brotherhood could be next if they didn't help. Jim then took Rogue and Laura to look for the Weapon XI base. After two weeks, Jim got a familiar scent that led them to the Weapon XI base at the Canada-US border. After contacting Logan, Liger, Rogue, and X-23 infiltrated Weapon XI and figured out where the X-Men were. Liger then found files on Wolverine and Deathstrike and gave them to X-23 for safekeeping. Liger then went to look for his mother, but he found her with Wraith and realized that she really did lose her memory. This allowed Deathstrike to easily beat Liger up. Deathstrike then carried Liger to where the X-Men were held. Liger later questions what Wraith wants and is told that Wraith wants to complete Weapon XI. Liger is then shoved into the Enhancer again. This time he turns into a mammalian monster. As this monster, Liger stops the X-Men from escaping from the Brotherhood. When Deadpool shoots him, Liger shoves him into a wall and holds his neck. When Wolverine punches him, Liger grabs Wolverine and holds him up until Rogue begs him to put Wolverine down and remember who he was. Eventually, Liger recognizes Howler when he barks at Liger's leg, and he remembers showing Howler to Rogue. Liger then puts Wolverine down and claws a new door for the X-Men, cutting Wraith's hand off when he tries to stop him. When the Blackbird doesn't startup, Liger lifts it up and tosses it in the general direction of the Mansion. Liger then tosses Scott's bike at the Weapon XI base, destroying it. Liger then jumps to where the X-Men landed, right on top of Deadpool, and is hugged by Rogue. Suddenly, Jim returns to normal due to all the energy he exerted in helping the X-Men escape. Jim then reunites with Deathstrike. He then asks her to join the X-Men. When she turns him down in favor of the American based Brotherhood, Jim gives Wolverine and Deathstrike the files he lifted detailing their lives. Jim then goes home. At high school the next day, Jim finds out that Yuriko's his new vice principal, and when she says hello to Jim during her introduction, Jim asks to be killed. Liger was then assigned to locate an odd energy signature with Rogue and Nightcrawler. At a small town at the border, Jim gets a toxic scent and uses that to lead them to a small crater with a large pair of foot prints in them. He then smelled when Batman arrived and went back to following the scent. He then found a small skinny man and was about to ask him if he saw anything when he got the same toxic scent from him and held his claws to the man's neck before he became the Hulk and punched Liger away. Liger then woke up and managed to relocate his arm as the other heroes and the Hulk arrived. Liger is then pounded on again by the Hulk until Rogue subdues him. He then learns that the Hulk is Bruce Banner before he's knocked out by a tranquilizer from Deadpool. Liger then wakes up in a Weapon XI base with the other heroes. He then learns that the Brotherhood kidnapped them. He then learned that Magneto took them as an unexpected bonus. He then asks what Magneto wants with Hulk and figures that they're going to trick him into joining their causes. Jim then looked away from his mother as she left. Deadpool then talked to Jim how Nos hates him. Jim then ends up shot in the head by Deadpool. Jim was later approached by Nos, and he and the others were released by Deathstrike after she incapacitates Nos. He then refuses her order to leave and goes with the others to save Banner. They eventually arrive at the rebuilt enhancer that gave Jim his accelerated Mutation as Banner comes out and turns into Gray Hulk. Liger is then choked by Gray Hulk until Rogue's tears cause the normal Hulk to reemerge and run off. When the Brotherhood tries to stop Hulk, Liger helps out by stabbing Sabertooth in the stomach while Rogue absorbs his powers to knock him out. Liger then encourages Hulk to destroy the base and escapes with Nightcrawler and everyone else. When Hulk arrives as well, he prepares to finish up their fight. The fight ends when Rogue subdues the Hulk again, and Liger comes up with the idea to drop the Hulk off in Michigan. Jim is then complimented on this by Xavier and is told that he's come a long way, and Jim punches Nightcrawler in the shoulder when he agrees jokingly. During a sparring match with Remy, Jim assured Remy that he was sure he could beat him someday. Jim is present during the news report of Mayor Robert Kelly's abduction by Red Skull and asked who it was before he was introduced to Captain America. Liger then went with Captain America and the X-Men to City Hall to rescue Kelly and defeat Red Skull. Liger then confronted Skull and broke Skull's fist with his own. Liger pulled Kelly away, saying he was saving Kelly's ungrateful life before he was hurried away by policemen. After this, Jim is disillussioned by the fact that despite being saved by the X-Men, Kelly still supports Mutant Registration but was arressted for his actions and the mutant registration act was shut down.He assure he was fine before heading for a ride on his bike for fresh air. Jim was met by Magneto, and at first Jim refused to join him until Magneto pointed out that Jim's mutation would mean that he would never get Rogue, and he'd always be alone. Magneto then promised to use his resources to work around that problem if he joined him, and Liger did so. Jim later told Magneto he was about to enter and assures Rogue that he's fine when she's put off by his darker attitude. At school, he becomes suspicious of Laura wanting him out of the X-Men due to her shouting at him a short while ago. He also doesn't eat that much. When Yuriko calls Jim into her office, she asks if he's learned anything, which he hasn't, and he turns down some cookies she offers. He turns down an invitation to play baseball and still insists he's fine. When he sees Rogue and Remy kissing, he storms out and demands a reassignment from Magneto. He then goes to the Brotherhood's house, telling his mother what happened and promising to kill Gambit.
Magneto/Erik "Magnus" Lensher - Going back to his plans for Mutant supremacy after the defeat of Apocalypse, Magneto has Sabertooth try and recruit X-23 to the Brotherhood from his hidden base, the Savage Lands. Magneto learns that the mission was a failure, but he also learns about Wolverine's son, Liger. He then councils with Mystique about finding a way to start the war. Magneto had Sabertooth go to the mansion with a chip he'd invented that shielded his thoughts, and he had false information that said that he'd attack the White House. After Sabertooth was tossed away, Magneto exclaimed that the war would begin in a week. He has Mystique capture Charles while he's in Washington and then has a new recruit named Nos turn himself into Xavier. Magneto then tries to recruit Jim to his cause, but Jim's determined not to, but he does pretend to be interested after he finds out that the X-Men are coming. Once the X-Men rescue Jim and Charles, Magneto lets them go as he's aware that all together, they're too strong, but he keeps an eye on Jim, who he considers the weak link in the chain. With the War averted, Magneto assigned Mystique to either recruit Jim to the Brotherhood or kill him. Magneto later learned from Mystique that Weapon XI had kidnapped the X-Men, and Magneto promised to arrive there in the afternoon and asked Mystique to ask Wolverine, who he assumed was there, to prep the Blackbird. Magneto then went with Wolverine to Weapon XI. When Deadpool and Sabertooth blocked their way, Magneto used his powers to hold Deadpool's guns in front of him, and Deadpool gave up. Magneto then saves the X-Men. His path is blocked by a now monstrous Liger, but he eventually remembers who he is and helps them escape. Magneto later attempts to gain control of the Hulk. After the capture of the Hulk, he ended up also capturing Nightcrawler, Rogue, and Liger. Magneto then says that he's going to help the Hulk and give him the offer to join the Brotherhood. He then went off to talk to Banner. Once there, Magneto extended his offer to help Banner gain control of the Hulk. He then tricks Banner into going into the Enhancer, which makes him more submissive to Magneto's orders. Magneto then sicks Hulk on the heroes before Hulk snaps out of it and escapes. After Hulk destroys the base and escapes with the heroes, Magneto terminates his plans for the Hulk and exclaims that if he never sees Hulk again it will be too soon. After the return of Captain America, Magneto recognized a moment of weakness for Jim and confronted him. Magneto then promised Jim that if he joined him, he would either make Jim essentially mortal or Rogue immortal. This won Jim's favor, and he joined the Brotherhood. After this, Magneto learns that Liger's in place and makes him suspicious of the X-Men when Laura and Kurt are whispering to each other. When Jim demands a reassignment, Magneto agrees, promising Jim the chance to kill Gambit.
Mystique/Raven Darkholme - After the defeat of Apocalypse, Mystique went back to Magneto out of loneliness, and this time, Magneto treated her more equally. He counciled with her about a way to start the war at a time where the X-Men could be split in half by it. During Xavier's visit to Washington, Mystique kidnapped Xavier and brings him to the Savage Lands. Mystique then introduces Magneto to Nos, who he has imitate Charles during a feign at the White House. She then captured Liger while he and the other X-Men were fighting Sentinels sent out by Gyrich. Mystique then escorts Jim to and from his meeting with Magneto and is paralyzed by Jean when the X-Men arrive. Next, Rogue touches Mystique and learns where the Professor is. They then make their way there, and when they come back, Mystique stands in the way, but Wolverine simply stabs her in the stomach and knocks her out. Mystique was then assigned by Magneto to either recruit Jim to the Brotherhood or kill him. She then arrived while he and Rogue were in a cave, and when Jim refused to join the Brotherhood, she kicked him off of the ledge. When he and Rogue ended up on a cliff bridge with Jim badly injured, Mystique arrived and turned into Wolverine to kill him, but Rogue then fought her off after taking some of her powers, and they escaped. Later, when Jim, Logan, Rogue, and Laura arrive at the American Brotherhood's base, Mystique learns that the X-Men have been captured by Weapon XI and informed Magneto. Two weeks later, Mystique tried to seduce Wolverine by pretending to be Wolverine's forgotten wife, Yuriko, but he figured out who she was when he saw the three scars on her stomach. She then continued with the seduction, turning into Yuriko, Jean, and Storm to try and aid her, but Wolverine refused. Mystique later goes to the base with Wolverine and the other Brotherhood members. Mystique then saves the X-Men. Her path is blocked by a now monstrous Liger, but he eventually remembers who he is and helps them escape. She's present at Magneto's meeting with a captured Liger, Kurt, and Rogue following the capture of the Hulk. She then gives Deadpool a death-glare when he begins to flirt with Rogue. She then witnesses Banner enter the Enhancer and become the Gray Hulk. Following the Hulk returning to normal, Mystique ends up smashed into Sabertooth and goes to recapture the Hulk. While she tries to fight him, she's knocked out by a tap from Superboy. Mystique recovers with everyone else following the Hulk's destruction of the base.
Lady Deathstrike/Yuriko Oyama-Howlett - The wife of Wolverine from before Weapon X captured him. Shortly after he was kidnapped, Yuriko gave birth to their son, Jim. She cared for him greatly and defended him when men from Weapon XI tried to capture him. Yuriko ended up captured with Jim and had Adamantium grafted onto her skeleton too. When Jim had Adamantium grafted onto his skeleton after having his mutation artificially activated and improved, Yuriko was furious. When Jim was four, she worked with a sympathetic doctor named Laura Wilson to help them escape. She then sacrificed her freedom to make sure Sabertooth didn't capture Jim, and Jim learned thirteen years later that Yuriko had received a memory wipe following her fight with Sabertooth. Deathstrike then became a body guard to Wraith, and when Jim arrived several years later as Liger to save the X-Men, Deathstrike unknowingly beat her own son and dragged him off to where the other X-Men were. Deathstrike is with Wraith when he puts Liger in the Enhancer again. This sparks Deathstrike's memories of Weapon XI, particularly when Jimmy was put into the Enhancer the first time. Deathstrike lunges at Wraith, but he uses a trap door to drop her into Rogue and X-23's cell. When Wolverine and the Brotherhood arrive to save them, Deathstrike starred angrily at Wolverine and holds her claws to Deadpool's throat for a remark he made about killing Jim when he was a baby. Deathstrike spares Deadpool in favor of escaping, but their way is blocked by a monstrous version of Liger, but he eventually remembered who he was and helped the X-Men escape. Deathstrike then hugged Jim when he returned to normal. Deathstrike then turned down Jim's offer to join the X-Men in favor of the American based Brotherhood of Mutants. The next day, Yuriko managed to become the new vice principal of Bayville High and introduced herself to the students, stating that she'd be as fair and impartial as possible, before waving hi to Jim and saying hello. When Jim was captured alongside the Hulk, Nightcrawler, and Rogue, Deathstrike looks sadly at Jim, but Jim doesn't even glance at her. Deathstrike then later frees Jim and the other heroes as she'd rather Jim choose to be on the same side as her and not be forced to. She then asks Jim to leave, but he and the others refuse in favor of saving the Hulk. They succeed, and when Deathstrike learns that Liger is fighting the Hulk again outside the base, Deathstrike cries out that they have to help Jim before Rogue subdues him. At school, Yuriko asks Jim if he's learned anything. When he says he hasn't, Yuriko offers him some cookies, which he only takes a few bites out of, making her worry about him. When Jim goes to the Brotherhood house and explains that Gambit kissed Rogue, first she comforts him and promises to stop talking to him like a little boy and then promises to kill Gambit before Jim says that he'll do it.
Sabertooth/Victor Creed - Returned from who knows where, Sabertooth was assigned by Magneto to recruit X-23 to the Brotherhood. Sabertooth purposefully waits for Wolverine to arrive and sneers when Jim arrives and indirectly remarks how he made sure his mother didn't escape Weapon X with him. Jim then attacks Sabertooth, immediately followed by Wolverine. Sabertooth is then blasted away by Jim and X-23 in the Blackbird. Sabertooth reported his failure, but he did tell Magneto about how Wolverine's son Liger showed up. Sabertooth's next mission was to attack the Mansion with false information in his head and a micro-chip with the same thought-inhibiting properties of Magneto's helmet. After Sabertooth was defeated and tossed away, he smirked at the plan working as the X-Men now believed that Magneto was planning on attacking the White House. Sabertooth then attacks Wolverine when the X-Men invade the Savage Lands to save Jim and the Professor, but Wolverine easily beats Sabertooth up, and they run off. It was later revealed that Sabertooth attempted to stop the then four-year-old Jim and Yuriko from escaping Weapon XI, and Yuriko sacrificed her freedom by fighting off Sabertooth while Jim was taken to America by Dr. Wilson. It's then revealed that Sabertooth's still free-lance enough to work for Weapon XI. He then scouted out the Mansion before he reported to a colonel. When Liger, Rogue, and X-23 invaded Weapon XI to free the X-Men, Sabertooth confronted Rogue and X-23 and beat X-23 up. He then dragged X-23 to where the X-Men were held, asking if the X-Men were feeling stupid yet. Sabertooth then learned of Wolverine and the Brotherhood attacking the base. Sabertooth claimed Wolverine as his and asks what Deadpool means by "the big fight". Sabertooth then attacked Wolverine with four new Adamantium claws, but Wolverine stuck his claws in Sabertooth's gut and forced him to agree to help rescue the X-Men. Once that was done, their way was blocked by a monstrous Liger until he remembered who he was and helped them escape. Sabertooth worked with several other members of the Brotherhood to capture the Hulk, with the bonus of Wolverine's son, Liger, Rogue, and Nightcrawler. Sabertooth then witnesses Banner get turned into the Gray Hulk by the Enhancer. When Hulk returns to normal, Sabertooth is knocked into Mystique by the Hulk. When he goes to recapture Hulk, he's stopped by Liger and Rogue when Liger stabs him with his claws, and Rogue knocks him out with her powers. When the base was destroyed by Hulk, Sabertooth recovered and asked if Magneto wanted them to follow him, which Magneto answers with a no.
Toad/Todd Tolansky - Todd was present when Jim informed the Brotherhood about the X-Men's capture, but he was skeptical about helping until Jim pointed out that the Brotherhood could be next. He then wondered how Magneto knew Wolverine was at the Brotherhood house when Magneto contacted them. Toad later goes to the base with Wolverine and the other Brotherhood members, commenting that they were going to die. Toad then saves the X-Men. His path is blocked by a now monstrous Liger, but he eventually remembers who he is and helps them escape.
Deadpool/Wade Wilson - A member of Weapon X and Weapon XI. When Rogue and X-23 tried to save the X-Men, Deadpool stopped them and introduced himself. Deadpool then beat up Rogue and took her to where the other X-Men were, correcting a optimistic remark by Gambit. After that, he was impressed by the cliffhanger. Deadpool then learned of Wolverine and the Brotherhood attacking the base, claiming that it was like rats going to NIMH. Deadpool then voiced the idea to get going while something else happened to set up the big fight. Deadpool then shot at the Brotherhood before Magneto pulled Deadpool's guns away and held them to Deadpool's head. Deadpool then gave up and joined the Brotherhood. When they arrived at the cells to save the X-Men, Deadpool said hello to Deathstrike when she held her claws to Deadpool's neck for voicing the opinion of wanting to kill Jim as a baby. Deadpool then defended himself by saying babies creeped him out. Once the X-Men were all out, their way was blocked by a monstrous Liger who Deadpool shot at. Liger then held Deadpool up by the neck until he asked Wolverine for help. Once Liger remembered who he was and helped them escape, he destroyed Scott's bike by throwing it at the base. Deadpool then called Liger a maniac and darned him to heck before Deathstrike held a claw to his neck, and he promised that he was kidding. Once the Blackbird roughly landed in a field, Deadpool reveled in being alive until Liger jumped on top of him, making him say ouch. Deadpool later tranquilized the Hulk, along with Liger, Rogue, and Nightcrawler and dragged them off to a rebuilt Weapon XI base. Deadpool was present while Magneto talked with the captured heroes. He flirted with Rogue until Mystique gave him a death glare, and he explained it away by saying that it was hard to turn off the charm after seeing, and shooting, a woman's rear end. He then told Liger about how much Nos hated Liger and attempted to shoot him in the head. The bullet ended up being stopped by Liger's adamantium skull. Deadpool then witnessed Banner get turned into the Gray Hulk and his return to his regular Hulk state. He then ended up stepped on by the Hulk as he escaped and saying that running gag was getting a little old. He then readily agreed to recapture the Hulk and premeditatedly murder the heroes. He then held Rogue at gun point until Liger destroyed his gun with his claws and is kicked away. He survived the Hulk's destruction of the base and pointed out Hulk's fight with Liger and his subsequent subduing by Rogue.
Blob/Fred Dukes - Fred was present when Jim informed the Brotherhood about the X-Men's capture. When he learned that the Brotherhood could be next, Fred almost immediately agreed to help. Blob later goes to the base with Wolverine and the other Brotherhood members. At the site of the base, Blob mistakes Jim's pet wolf for a dog. Blob then saves the X-Men.
