Hellions?[edit]

Shouldn't the original and King Bedlam Hellions be under "Enemies"?

Missing Villains[edit]

One of the first things I noticed was... where's Omega Red in all this? After noticing that, it's got me to thinking as to who else might not be there. Is there any more then?

Mirage[edit]

In point of fact, she was active as an X-Man in more than one mission. She appears on a mission in X-Men: Black Sun scouting the home of Dr. Strange in Greenwich Village for occult activity for Jean.

Jean Grey[edit]

As stated in Phoenix Force Handbook, Jean Grey is dead. 200.164.174.243 (talk)Rainha Branca

Outdated Roster[edit]

Some of the characters in bold are no longer X-Men. As of Avengers & X-Men: Axis #4 several characters are X-Men such as Havok & Sunfire an now Evan is an X-Men as Apocalypse (1st appearance as). Cyclops is standing with the core X-Men team as well. please update. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 107.215.238.219 (talk) 01:57, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

It appears that contributors have taken a "wait and see" stance regarding Axis, and it's not a bad stance to take: when the core nature of a team's key members has been inverted and they're acting contrary to their normal nature, it's almost like mind control and remains to be seen if after the fact they'll consider their actions their own or their membership changes official.
And regarding characters who are "no longer X-Men", as always, if you can cite a source saying they're no longer members, then cite the source and make the change. However, with dozens of members and students and at least three completely separate groups of X-Men based out of three separate locations, it's hard to say someone's not still a member unless it's stated somewhere. Recent history has shown us that just because someone hasn't been seen for months (or even a year or more!) doesn't mean they're not members--especially since one group (the New Mutants squad) doesn't currently appear in a book but has been confirmed as still active several times since their book ended. So just because Warpath (for example) hasn't been seen for a long time doesn't mean he's not still active with the team somewhere (he and Domino weren't seen for months at a time, for example, when the team was based on Utopia, but they were still members throughout that period), so with the team's current expansive status quo, you kind of just have to consider them members until they're shown leaving/quitting (like Danger in AVX Consequences), it's stated somewhere that they're not members anymore (like Cypher in All-New X-Factor), they show up on another team (like the members of Cable's first post-AVX X-Force squad), or they die (like Wolverine).
