Fictional team biography
The X-People were formed by Jubilee, who was a former member of the X-Men, Generation X, and the Avengers. Due to the decrease in anti-mutant sentiment (caused by the sacrifice of the X-Men to save the Earth), the now more mature and experienced Jubilee decided to start a new version of the X-Men (her "X-People") and began taking on mutant heroes for training. Some of her first students were not very dedicated (such as the speedster Bluestreak, who left due to the lack of publicity the X-People garnered). However, Jubilee found four exceptional heroes (the high flying Angry Eagle, the ape-like Simian, the stretchable Spanner, and the superfast Torque) to form her core team.
Like her mentor, Charles Xavier, Jubilee sought out mutants in trouble as well, such as Nancy Lu, a mutant who was being harassed by anti-mutant vandals. The X-People continue to carry out the heroic ideals set by the X-Men.
