Spotlight On...

Publication History X: 2004

2004 saw the debuts of fan-favorite character Pixie, as well as Major Mapleleaf II and Mammomax. Meanwhile, X-23 made her first appearance in comic form, previously appearing in the X-Men: Evolution television series. The end of the year saw long-time Avenger the Scarlet Witch seemingly have a nervous breakdown, which would have dire implications for mutantkind in the years ahead, and the X-Factor Investigations organization was formed. Learn about these events and more in the latest Publication History X.

Publication History X: 2003

2003 was one of the most controversial years in X-Men history, with the release of the much-maligned story arc, The Draco. And yet, some future fan-favorite characters also made their first appearances this year, as the second series of New Mutants introduced the Academy X generation of mutant students. Read our latest Publication History X to learn more.


Happy Friday! Start your weekend off right with UXN's Character Profile on everyone's (least?) favorite mutant homophobe, Paulie Provenzano!

7,000 Issue Summaries !!!

While character articles have a tendency to steal most of the limelight from the site's front page, the UXN continues its utopian dream of posting summaries for issues with X-characters. Today, we reach another milestone in this dream - our 7000th summary!

As always, we try to choose an issue of some significance. This one is the X-Men: Legacy #300. Of course, in truth, X-Men: Legacy did not reach 300 issues by itself, but was the culmination of numberings from X-Men (2nd series), New X-Men (1st series), X-Men (2nd series) again, then X-Men: Legacy (1st series)... and then finally X-Men: Legacy (2nd series). If that didn't make sense to you, you have a wonderful website called the UXN to help explain it all.

This summary and the few preceding it were written by Contributor "Gremlin." Compared to many staffers, he is relatively new ("only" having been around a few years) but he has written many Issue Summaries and lots of articles of all types. If you think you might be interested in helping out in any capacity, please take a look at our "Contribute to the UXN" page and let us know!


The X-Men had their work cut out for them dealing with Mastermind, but nothing could have prepared them for the tricks and deceptions of his daughter. Joining the X-Men only to immediately betray them, this malicious illusionist went on to plague the team again and again, all with a wicked smile on her face. Watch your backs and keep hold of your senses as we unleash our latest character article on... Lady Mastermind!


Held as a backup entry in case one of our Unusual Suspects didn't come through, this supporting starlet from the pages of X-Factor can now get the spotlight she deserves. How many of you think you would have been able to guess the identity of the viral diva INFECTIA?
