After rescuing a de-aged Storm from the Shadow King, Gambit was brought back to the X-Mansion where he eventually joined the X-Men. As a mutant, Gambit possesses the ability to convert the potential energy in an object into destructive kinetic energy. Gambit utilizes this power mostly in the form of throwing kinetically charged playing cards which explode on impact, or by super charging his extendable bo staff.

Gambit and his fellow X-Man Rogue have an unsteady relationship, with a nearly equal mix of time together and time apart.


Jean Grey

Jean Grey manifested her mutant psychic abilities at an early age, and was subsequently sent to the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters to learn control over her powers.

As a founding member of the X-Men, she's spent most of her life as a hero and has the calm confidence of a seasoned pro.

When Jean served as an avatar for the Phoenix Force, an immensely powerful entity of death and rebirth, her powers were greatly enhanced. Although she no longer operates on that scale, her telepathic and telekinetic abilities make her a formidable opponent.



Over the course of her life, Ororo Munroe has been trained as a juvenile thief, worshiped as a goddess, and hated as a mutant. Since Charles Xavier enlisted her to join the X-Men, Storm has grown as a warrior and as a leader.

Her control over the climate has been honed through constant training and numerous battles, and her arsenal of elemental powers, from shattering lightning strikes to freezing winds, make her a force of nature to be feared and respected.
