X-Men

From X-Factor

X-Men
Head Scott Summers
NPC

The X-Men were a team of halfway to sanctioned mutant vigilantes who were run out of the basement of Xavier's School.

Purpose & Goals

The goals and purpose of the X-Men were to protect mutants, to locate those who needed training and assistance and bring them in, to help integrate mutants into society, and to generally fight crime and do good in this world.

Resources

The resources of the X-Men were considerable due to the investments of Charles Xavier, the original design and assistance of Erik Lensherr, and the development of working scientists in the basement. The X-Men had access to weapons, uniforms, armor, and notably, the SR-71 Blackbird, as well as Cerebro, numerous lab and medical facilities, and generally were a well-equipped and outfitted team.

Structure

Scott Summers was the leader of the team, although other X-Men frequently led missions. Early on Scott Summers and Ororo Munroe were frequent co-leaders. Other than the necessity of having a field leader, however, the X-Men were largely a team of equals and functioned by consensus.
