Wonder how long Professor Xavier has been recording mutant brain wave patterns without their knowledge? Given this character, the answer is a very long time. Our run of dead and returning Spotlight characters continues with Changeling, the first X-Man to ever die. Formerly of Factor Three, the one-time villain posed as Charles Xavier at the professor's request while he focused on an oncoming alien invasion. Changeling died in battle with Grotesk, with the original X-Men unaware at the time of his true identity. His resurrection all these years later shows just how long Xavier and Cerebro have been at work, waiting for the Dawn of X.

Profile on...MISS SINISTER!
Claudine Renko was intended to be used as a failsafe clone in the case of Mr. Sinister's death but struggled against his control and took on a life of her own. Proving just as twisted and heinous as her male counterpart, this villainess arrived on the scene to terrorize everyone from X-23 to Old Man Logan. Step inside and read all about the deliciously demented crimes of Miss Sinister!
Last time we saw this man, he was saving Magneto's life despite disagreeing with him on the direction that mutantkind should be going in. In the time that has passed, the mutant race's position in the world has changed significantly, So much so, that Exodus, along with many other mutants who were once sworn enemies of the X-Men, have been welcomed to the mutant nation of Krakoa. With Exodus now being forced to live and work alongside his former adversaries, time will tell how long it will be before his ideology gets the better of him once more. Read our updated spotlight on the X-Men's former enemy now turned unlikely ally.
Update on... KYLUN
Although technically not dead, Kylun has been significantly underused as a character ever since Excalibur ended. Nevertheless, he made several small appearances in recent years, including being tagged as an X-Man reservist and getting a supporting role in the Age of X-Man reality. Interested in seeing more of the lion-faced Scottish echomorph with the magic swords? Let Marvel know!
Update on... ST. CROIX TWINS
Our next Dawn of X update revisits the confusing tale of the original M, her sisters Nicole and Claudette St. Croix. When 16 year old Monet went missing, her 8 year old twin sisters were miraculously able to combine and pose as her. Serving on Generation X first as M and later as Penance, the twins faded into obscurity as that title was cancelled. If the baby Penances roaming the Akademos Habitat are any indication, however, the St. Croix siblings are reunited once again.
Spotlight on...CANDY SOUTHERN!
No, this isn't another update to Jean Grey's Spotlight... Today, we take a look at one of the X-Men's earliest and longest-serving supporting characters, the Southern Belle herself, Candy Southern! Back when the X-Men had a vast array of non-mutant lovers and allies, Candy proved her worth over and over as not only a great ally of the X-Men, but even served a stint as leader of the New Defenders. Candy was not among the supporting cast who seemingly vanished without a trace, she actually met a much more tragic and quite horrific fate which you can read all about in this Spotlight on (not Marvel Girl) Candy Southern!
