"Protecting a world that fears and hates."

Shortly after creating the Institute, Charles Xavier resolved to take the training of his young students powers to a larger level. When they graduated and became adults, interested and selected members of the student body were selected to become X-Men.

The X-Men are less a team and more a group of people that believe. They believe in the dream of Charles Xavier. That mutant and humans can live together, in harmony. As to how to go about achieving that end? Well, the answers are as diverse as the followers themselves. Many of those who claim the title 'X-Men' have attended Xavier's Institute as children or teenagers, but not all.

What unifies the X-Men is Xavier's Dream. That humans and mutants can peacefully coexist. But there are many paths to that Dream, and over the years the X-Men have settled into different groups based on what they feel is the best way to make that Dream a reality.
