originals.jpg (42570 bytes) The Originals
This is where it all started, I don't know how many years ago. For Bobby, Scott, Jean, Warren and Hank, the X-Men have been the centerpoints of their lives since they were teenagers. And for the Professor...well, this all is his Dream.

All-New, All-Different X-Men
After most of the originals were kidnapped and imprisoned by Krakoa, Xavier and Cyclops gathered up a new team of mutants to go back and rescue them. This team included Storm, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Sunfire, Thunderbird, Banshee and Wolverine. Thunderbird died after just a few missions. All this was before my time, and with the number of times this mansion has been destroyed, I can't get my hands on any pictures of them for this album.

Even more of us...
The X-Men had something like a membership boom after the new team was formed. Kitty Pryde (Shadowcat) joined up next, then me, Alison Blaire (Dazzler), Longshot, Havok and Psylocke. During this time, other team members came and went, too. Scott was gone for the longest time after the death of Phoenix (whom he thought was Jean at the time), Beast joined the Avengers, Warren and Bobby joined the Champions, etc.

The Australia Years... (or was it months? either way, it was too long, by my reckoning.)
The team really got divided up after the people who were active X-Men at the time faked their deaths and moved to Australia. Kitty and Kurt decided that they needed to carry on Xavier's dream, so they formed Excalibur over in Europe. The original X-Men had already formed X-Factor by this time. And us? We took up camp at a Reavers base on the Australian outback.
