The "Mutant X" universe (Earth-1298) is a reimagination of the Earth-616 universe. In this continuum, Scott Summers was captured along with his parents by the Shi'ar and only Alex escaped, allowing him to be the eventual leader of the X-Men. The Mutant X universe reimagines Mister Fantastic, Nick Fury, and Professor X as villains and Doctor Doom and Apocalypse as heroes.

After a member of Havok's X-Factor team, Greystone, develops temporal insanity, he attempts to build a time machine to return to his timeline and be reunited with his mother who, in all probability, does not exist anymore. Havok attempts to stop him, but the machine explodes, supposedly killing both men. However, death was only the beginning for Alex Summers. At the instant of his death, another Havok from an alternate reality also dies after being shot in the chest by a Sentinel. Somehow, Havok's spirit finds its way into his counterpart's body and he wakes up in the Mutant X Universe. Here, he is the leader of a mutant team of heroes dubbed The Six, who are altered versions of his friends from Earth-616.
At first he finds this universe strange, thinking it to be nothing more than the mental manipulations of some megalomaniac, but in time he comes to cherish the relationships he had. The team endures many hardships together, including betrayal by the demon-possessed Madelyne and Fallen, but they compensate with the arrival of new members Gambit and Captain America.
At the end of the series, the reincarnated Goblyn Force, Dracula and the Beyonder all converge their efforts to destroy Earth. Almost all of the heroes die in the epic battle until Havok, discovering that he was the home for the Nexus of Realities, a force of nature that binds all realities (Omniverse) in which it gave Havok Omniversal level of power in which, Goblin Entity planned on using to destroy and reshape the Omniverse at her image, he then finds a way to stop the Goblin Entity, which at that time had merged with the Beyonder. He then fights with the possessed Maydelyne and harnesses the power of the Nexus of All realities and with a thought eliminates the Goblin Entity throughout the Omniverse, instantaneously. He then teleports Maydelyne to her alternate universe with her son, Scotty. Fearing that somebody would attempt to use the power of the Nexus of All Realities to reshape, destroy, or alter the very Omniverse; he then becomes one with the Nexus of All Realities to prevent anyone from getting this power, except himself.
The series lasted for 32 issues and three annuals before it ended and Alex Summers' consciousness was returned to his proper body.
The Mutant X Havok did not die during the fight with the Sentinels. He was instead thrown into unconsciousness while the Earth-616 Havok took over his body. The evil Havok went with the original Havok back to Earth-616 during the final battle with the Goblin Queen. He lay dormant when Charles Xavier freed Alex's consciousness, biding his time, and re-emerged after Xavier Institute Student Nicholas Gleason (Wolf Cub) wounded Havok. Luckily, the Exiles (Mimic, Magik, Heather Hudson, Nocturne, Morph and Sunfire) were sent by the Timebroker to fight off the evil Alex until the Earth-616 version came back. The Timebroker then personally eliminated the evil Alex's consciousness.
At the beginning of the series, Alex is the leader of The Six, a superhero group which is roughly equivalent to the Earth-616 original X-Men. The roster includes:
|Character||Real Name||Joined in||Notes|
|Bloodstorm||Ororo Munroe||Mutant X #1||In this reality, Storm was not able to be saved from the bite of Dracula and instead was transformed into a vampire. Aside from her control over the weather, she also is able to transform into a mist, summon, control and transform into vermin and other animals such as wolves, and drain blood through her fangs. In defiance of her darker nature, Bloodstorm employs Forge and Kitty Pryde as food sources so she does not have to kill.|
|Brute||Henry "Hank" McCoy||Mutant X #1||In this reality, Hank McCoy's experimentation went too far. Instead of his furry simian form he has transformed into a green furred and scaled amphibious creature. To add insult to injury, his intellect degenerated to the equivalent of a small child's. He also made a faulty deal with demons, which resulted in his legs being replaced with goat hooves.|
|Fallen||Warren Worthington III||Mutant X #1||Apocalypse's experimentation resulted in a more organic look for Warren. Instead of the metal wings and blue skin, he was given bat wings, deathly pale skin and the ability to breathe fire.|
|Ice-Man||Bob Drake||Mutant X #1||Left without a device to suppress his powers after the tampering of the Asgardian deity Loki, Bob Drake was left trapped in his ice form without the ability to touch another living thing. Because of this, he has become distant, and his stalwart humor has turned to cynicism. He also sees himself as partially responsible for the Brute's mental regression and tries his best to look out for his friend.|
|Marvel Woman/Goblyn Queen||Madelyne Pryor-Summers||Mutant X #1||The clone of the deceased Jean Grey, Madelyne found happiness in the arms of Havok, even having a son with him that they named Scotty. According to a S.H.I.E.L.D. file, Madelyne made a deal with the demons of Inferno to unlock her telekinetic potential. She framed Brute for the deaths of Green Goblin and a clone of Spider-Man. She later attacked the city possessing the Beyonder's body.|
|Captain America||Mutant X #15||Cap joined the team because he disagreed with S.H.I.E.L.D.'s search-and-destroy policy on mutants and decided that siding with the Six would be better than siding with Nick Fury. It was revealed that he is a mutant and a successor to the original Captain America, Steve Rogers.|
|Gambit||Remy LeBeau||Mutant X #16||Gambit was critically wounded on a mission with Bloodstorm where he begged her to turn him into a vampire, and Bloodstorm reluctantly agreed. Gambit has the ability to charge objects with explosive kinetic energy and can also transform into mist, summon, control and transform into vermin and other animals such as wolves, and drain blood through his fangs. He also adopted a mysterious girl named Raven.|
