Coach Real Name: unknown
Status: deceased

Though to the media he was posing as X-Force’s mentor and trainer, the Coach did not have the best intentions for the team. He was in constant contact with team owner Spike Freeman who wanted to improve X-Force’s media coverage by having the team fight among themselves.
When the team’s new leader Orphan started to act on his own sense of ethics and morals, the Coach wanted him killed and promised U-Go Girl his job if she would do it. However she had a change of hearts and sided with Guy. Edie and the Coach ended up struggling over a gun and when it went loose it was the Coach who was dead. Shortly afterwards it was discovered that he and former leader Zeitgeist even had arranged the death of most of the former team, since they wanted to get some fresh new faces in. [X-Force #119-120]

Colossus Real Name: Piotr Nicoleivitch Rasputin
Status: active member of the Astonishing X-Men

Hank McCoy’s discovery of a cure for the Legacy Virus came with a bitter price. It needed to be activated by a mutant power, killing the host in the process. Remembering how he was not able to save his baby sister Illyana from the terrible disease, Colossus couldn’t stand the thought of any other people dying while something could be done. He made a noble choice as he sacrificed his own life by injecting himself with the serum, and overnight the virus was cured worldwide. [Uncanny X-Men #390] Recently however, Cyclops' squad was investigating a new enemy, and Colossus' ex-girlfriend, Shadowcat discovered her first love, alive. Kitty was in disbelief because she scattered Colossus' ashes after his death, but it turned out that in the morgue Colossus‘ body was switched with someone else’s. For months, Piotr was held prisoner and experimented on by the alien Ord as punishment for his part in the cure of the Legacy Virus. [Astonishing X-Men (3rd series) #4-6] Since his rescue, Colossus has rejoined the X-Men in the squad alongside Kitty and Wolverine. [Uncanny X-Men #460]

[Avengers (3rd series) #44] Despite forming several friendships with mutants over the years, especially during her tenure as X-Factor liaison, Valerie was part of a group of important government officials who outlined a proposal declaring that simply being a mutant was a crime against humanity, and that they be dealt with accordingly. However, Storm interrupted the meeting and made a convincing proposal, which was accepted. Her team of X-Men was granted authority to deal with mutant issues on a global scale, and since them have renamed themselves X-Treme Sanctions Executive. (X.S.E.) [X-Treme X-Men #31-35]

Copycat Real Name: Vanessa Geraldine Carlysle

The shapeshifter was blackmailed by Mr. Tolliver to impersonate Domino for over a year and infiltrate X-Force. After a while she came to respect Cable and X-Force and helped to free the real Domino from Tolliver’s base, even though it meant that she had to fight her boyfriend Deadpool. Vanessa slipped away in the confusion. [X-Force #15] Afterwards she was hunted down by the Six Pack and the real Domino, who needed her help to find X-Force. [X-Force #23-24] Later she met Deadpool again during a hunt for Tolliver’s will, but she turned down Wade’s offer to renew their relationship as she loved someone else [Deadpool (1st series) #4] She was referring to Weapon X, Garrison Kane. The couple later helped Cable and Domino in a fight against the Psycho Man, and Copycat and Domino made up with each other. [Cable (2nd series) #39] Copycat and Kane were later recruited by the new Weapon X program and both have been upgraded. Yet in Vanessa’s case, the process misfired. As an unwanted side-effect of her upgraded shapeshifting, she was losing her sense of identity and slowly losing her sanity. The Weapon X program has no room for failures, so they decided to kill her. At first they ordered Deadpool to take the job, but when he refused, it was Sabretooth who finally killed her. [Deadpool: Agent of Weapon X #3 / Deadpool (3rd series) #59 ]

Corsi, Tom Status: teacher at the Xavier Institute

Police officer Tom Corsi and nurse Sharon Friedlander were transformed into red Indians during the Demon Bear Saga.

When the house was overcrowded with injured Morlocks from the Mutant Massacre, both helped to ship the patients to Muir Island. They were still there when the Reavers attack Moira’s lab complex and helped to fight them off. [Uncanny X-Men #254-255] Later Tom and Sharon worked as nurse and bus driver for a school near New York, and watched over a young mutant child who was also suffering from the down syndrome. Sharon got killed by the Acolytes who tried to recruit the boy, but Tom evened the score as he shot one of the Kleinstock brothers. [Uncanny X-Men #298] During his stay on Muir, Tom had read a lot of Moira’s scientific work and self-taught himself to become an expert in the field of mutant powers. He became Generation X’s physical instructor and helped some of them in further developing their powers. [Generation X #52] After the school’s secret of harboring mutants was exposed and the Academy was closed down, Tom was without a job. However he has recently returned to the Xavier Institute where he teaches Physical Education. [mentioned in New Mutants (2nd series) #7]

Cyclops Real Name: Scott Summers
Status: active member of Astonishing X-Men

Actually Scott and Jean had decided to retire in Alaska and were thinking about having children, but when they were mentioned to be part of the Twelve, they followed Xavier’s call once more. In the final battle against Apocalypse, Cyclops became the next host body for the ancient Egyptian mutant and was believed dead by his teammates. [X-Men (2nd series) #97] Months later it became clear that a merging had taken place and both identities were struggling for dominance over the shared body. Phoenix and Cable were able to purge Apocalypse’s essence out of his systems and since then Cyclops returned to the X-Men. [X-Men: Search for Cyclops #1-4] The experience left him somewhat changed, he was no longer the stiff boy scout and apparently developed a sense of humor. His feelings for Jean also seemed to have been affected, putting their the marriage under a strain. [New X-Men #114] Looking for some advice, Scott admitted his problems to Emma Frost, who, secretly in love with him, used the chance to start a psychic affair with him. When Jean found out about, she was furious, and unfortunately they never got a chance to sort things out. Separated due to various missions, they only made peace with each when Jean was dying from an attack by a mutant terrorist. [New X-Men #150] Having buried his wife (yet again), Scott is now in a happy relationship with Emma, though most of the other X-Men disapprove of the idea of them as a couple. Still they are the school’s current headmasters, and Scott not only reorganized the three X-teams, he is also leading one of them and teaching his own squad of new mutants. [X-Men (2nd series) #157, New X-Men: Academy X #2, Astonishing X-Men (3rd series) #1] Cyclops has been very busy as of late, leading his squad against a new enemy, while keeping the peace between Emma and the rest of the team, not to mention his personal life being turned upside down by the return of the Phoenix and Jean Grey. The Phoenix resurrected before its time, it thought it needed Cyclops because Jean needed Cyclops. Jean was forcibly resurrected by the Phoenix, and a battle followed, the X-Men knowing they had to stop the Phoenix. After a battle that tested everyone's strengths, Cyclops, Emma and Jean convinced the Phoenix that it didn’t return for him, but for Jean, because it needs Jean. Scott and Jean made their peace, before Jean returned to the White Hot Room. [X-Men: Phoenix - Endsong #1-5]

Cypher Real Name: Douglas Ramsey
Status: deceased

Cypher’s mutant power of multi-lingualism was pretty useless in combat situation, so most of the time he was protected by his teammates or hiding in the sidelines. During one of these occasions, namely the Fall of Mutants, Douglas saw that a villain was about to shoot Wolfsbane. None of his teammates responded to his warning, and so Doug saw no other way than to throw himself into the firing line to catch the bullet meant for Rahne with his own body. [New Mutants (1st series) #60]

Darkstar Real Name: Laynia Petrovna
Status: deceased

A Russian mutant of considerable power, Laynia tried may times to defect to the United States of America, though not without consequence. [Champions #7, Captain America #352-353] Eventually after serving in almost every Russian super group, either with the government or against them, and even against her will or mind controlled, Laynia and various other Russian superpowers were all joined together as one team known as The Winter Guard, where they most recently became the victims of the Darkstar‘s mad father, the Presence in his schemes with Kang. Darkstar was the only member unaffected by the Presence, and the Avengers, Thor and Firebird subsequently defeated him and The Winter Guard were returned to normal. [Avengers (3rd series) #42-43] It is unknown what sparked this decision, but Laynia then joined the Europe branch of the worldwide X-Corporation. However, it was then that Laynia took part in the disastrous mission in the Channel Tunnel in which the team had to rescue a trainload of civilians and fight a deadly living weapon. Sadly, Darkstar had become infected by the virus and was killed by the renegade mutant known as Fantomex, much to her teammates‘ horror. [New X-Men #128-130]

Daytripper is listed under Magik II

Dazzler Real Name: Alison Blaire
Status: inactive, back on Earth

The songstress and actress had only reluctantly joined the team, but after her secret of being a mutant was publicly outed she made a too easy target for the Marauders. She stayed with the X-Men till they were forced to step into the Siege Perilous to escape certain death at the hands of the Reavers. [Uncanny X-Men #251] Alison was found amnesiac at Malibu beach and soon recognized as the Dazzler. The news of her sudden return and the release of her first movie turned her into a celebrity, but after having to face a stalker she realized that stardom is not what her heart desires. [Uncanny X-Men #259-260] Shortly afterwards she accepted Longshot‘s request to aid him in the rebellion on his native Mojoworld. Fighting along her former teammate and lover, most of Alison’s memory returned and she also got pregnant. [X-Men (2nd series) #10-11] However things did not turn out well. Something seems to have happened to the unborn child [X-Men (2nd series) #47], and recently Dazzler escaped from Mojoworld which was attacked by villains that claim to have killed her husband. [Uncanny X-Men #393] With the recent 80ies revival, Dazzler apparently is a required artist again and has gone back to singing. [Deadpool (3rd series) #67]

Note: Dazzler is set to appear in the upcoming New Excalibur series.

Dead Girl Real Name: unknown
Status: deceased

Dead Girl came to New York to become an actress but she ended up in the wrong company and she was murdered. Shortly afterwards she rose again and found out that her mutant power turned her into a living corpse. Already during her first mission, she impressed her teammates with her uncanny ability to reform herself after getting killed, or her several body parts fighting on when they she gets torn apart. [X-Force #126-127] Soon she and the Anarchist started some loose relationship with each other, though with the inclusion of Venus Dee Milo, Dead Girl thinks that her role as the group’s „sexy, female member“ is in danger. Little does she know that even the Anarchist, secretly, is having the hots for her rival. [X-Statix #9] In the meantime, Dead Girl has found new ways to use her powers, like visiting the recently deceased in the afterlife. [X-Statix #17] After a battle with the Avengers [X-Statix #21-25], Dead Girl revealed that she wanted to try and get back into the movie industry, and learned that her teammates wanted to pursue other careers also. However during X-Statix's final mission, for some unknown reason Dead Girl's powers faded and she died, just as the rest of the team got killed by the villains they were fighting. [X-Statix #26]
Note: Dead Girl is set to appear in her own upcoming limited series. Wether that means that she is back among the living, or if the series is set in the past remains to be seen.

Diamond Lil Real Name: Lillian Crawley-Jeffries
Status: captive of the Weapon X program

When Alpha Flight reorganized themselves, Madison Jeffries joined the new team but was captured by the newly-reformed Zodiac on the new Alpha’s very first mission. [Alpha Flight (2nd series) #1] Lil came to Department H looking for Madison, but was captured and subjected to a barrage of tests by Doctor Horatio Huxley, centered around the creation of the most recent bearer of the Weapon X codename. [Alpha Flight (2nd series) #5-6] After Huxley's plot was revealed and Weapon X was defeated, Lil was rescued by Alpha Flight, [Alpha Flight (2nd series) #18] It is unrevealed what happened to Lillian after this as she did not rejoin Alpha Flight, so presumably she was recuperating elsewhere. However in a cruel twist of fate, Diamond Lil was captured by agents of Weapon X and imprisoned in the mutant concentration camp Neverland - which was created by her husband, the mind controlled Jeffries. [Weapon X (2nd series) #5] Not one to stand idle, Lillian tried to fight with the guards but was seriously injured, however she remains alive. When she finds out that her husband was responsible for this (albeit he was mind controlled) her reaction will be nothing less than mortified. When the secret of Neverland was about to be uncovered by Wolverine, the Weapon X program evacuated everyone from the prison. While a large number of camp inmates were deemed not worth the effort and killed, Lil was among a group of prisoners the program relocated to another base, in order to make them agents of the Weapon X program too. [Weapon X: Days of Future Now #3]

Domino II Real Name: Neena Thurman
Status: active member of the Six Pack

Following the old X-Force’s disbanding, a new group of media-hyped mutants having bought the rights to the name, Domino became part of a new project of Charles Xavier called X-Corporation. With offices in Melbourne, Hong Kong, Amsterdam and Mumbai, the X-Corporation monitor mutant right violations outside the US. [New X-Men Annual 2001] However, with the death of her colleague Risque it appeared that Domino was the only current member of the Hong Kong branch of the X-Corporation, and when Cable asked her to become part of his Underground organization to take down the Weapon X program and their evil schemes involving a concentration camp for mutants, Domino accepted. [Weapon X (2nd series) #7] They were quite successful in undermining the program and attacking the complex, though in the end, they were betrayed by their own ally, Agent Brent Jackson, who had the Underground members mindwiped to forget about everything they learned about Neverland. Actually, they even might have been turned into agents of the Weapon X if not for defecting agent Marrow who freed the Underground members as it suited her purposes. [Weapon X (2nd series) #12-13] Domino and Cable were recently under attack by the Helix, which led them to reunite with many former X-Force members, and resulted in a battle with Jon Spectre and the Skornn. During this debacle, a alternate Domino from a possible future also appeared as the new Stryfe. [X-Force (2nd series) 1-6] Since then, Domino has joined a new Six Pack and was forced to go up against Cable. [Cable/Deadpool #8-12]

Doop Real Name: unknown
Status: deceased

Doop is still a mystery. Not even his / her gender is known, and the powers of X-Force’s cameraman / secret benefactor are ill defined too. Doop once accidentally trapped the team in nightmare visions within his/her own head much to his/her own surprise, and Doop also shares a secret history with Wolverine. Apparently Doop is no full member of X-Force as he/she did not participate when they voted wether to take a mission or not. [X-Force #120, 123, 125] The little facts known about Doop only raise more questions. Apparently he / she has a shared past with Wolverine, and he / she is also responsible for dealing with people suffering of Code X. This refers to the rare occasion that a mutant’s genetic make-up contains a glitch that eventually renders them dangerously unstable. In such instances Doop kills the mutant before other people come to harm. [X-Statix #1] Quite recently, Doop was kidnapped by Russian separatists who turned his brain into a weapon. When Thor of the Avengers threw his hammer at him, Doop’s brain exploded and was scattered into several pieces all over the world. Both X-Statix and the Avengers fought to gather the pieces of Doop, but ultimately, the Avengers decided that X-Statix were responsible enough to look after Doop, who had since returned to true form. [X-Static #21-25] But as his teammates all revealed they wanted to pursue different careers, Doop accompanied them on their final mission - in which everyone, including Doop, was killed. [X-Statix #26]

Douglock is listed under Warlock

Duncan, Fred Status: deceased

Fred Duncan was an FBI agent and old friend of Professor Xavier, who helped him to set up the school in Westchester and often helped the X-Men to deal with the authorities. The circumstances of his death have yet to be revealed, but the X-Cutioner picked up Duncan’s files along with much gathered equipment and weapons to avenge him. [mentioned in Uncanny X-Men Annual #17]

Earthmover Real Name: Chuck Moss
Status: active member of Alpha Flight, currently in space

Chuck Moss is the mystical equivalent of what Charles Xavier would call an Omega level mutant, and both Shaman and Wolverine have taken him into training. [Wolverine (2nd series) #179] It would seem that Chuck has now replaced Shaman on Alpha Flight, as he was being trained in the use of the medicine pouch [X-Men Unlimited #45] and was present, while Shaman was not, when Alpha Flight fought the X-Men. Naturally though, he is still rather inexperienced and has much training to undergo. [Uncanny X-Men #422] Just like the rest of Alpha Flight, Earthmover was captured by the alien Plodex, which caused Sasquatch to assemble an emergency Alpha Flight team of mostly newcomers to save them. [Alpha Flight (3rd series) #1] Following the original Alpha Flight's rescue, Earthmover accompanied his team into space where they are currently returning thousands of Plodex eggs to their homeworld. [Alpha Flight (3rd series) #6]

El Guapo Real Name: Robbie Rodriguez
Status: deceased

Not wanting to entirely rely on special effects for the X-Statix movie he produced, Spike Freeman hired a real live mutant to perform in it. Despite his skills with his skateboard and his good looks, Robbie had one more advantage on his side - being of Latino heritage, he made the line-up of the group look more politically correct. When a deluded mutant attacked the film crew, thinking them to be the real X-Statix, it was Robbie who prevented the incident from escalating and he also saved the life of Guy Smith in the occasion. This prompted the team to invite him as their latest addition. [X-Statix #9] Accepting this offer proved to be Robbie’s downfall - after briefly enjoying the lifestyle of a celebrity, El Guapo lost both of his legs in a mine explosion. [X-Statix #15] Subsequent to that, he fell prey to a bad luck curse from a song sung by the resurrected and then killed Henrietta Hunter. Rumor was that anybody who’d hum along the song had one minute to recite the song’s entire lyrics, or they would die. Robbie didn’t believe it, but he ended up accidentally flying into a wall and being penetrated by his own skateboard. [X-Statix #18]

Empath Real Name: Manuel de la Rocha
Status: active member of X-Corporation L.A.

Originally a member of the New Mutants’ enemies the Hellions, Manuel became obsessed with the New Mutant Magma, and shortly after she quit the New Mutants to be with him on the Hellions, they traveled to Magma’s home nation Nova Roma. [New Mutants (1st series) #62] Empath returned to the Hellions for a short time, only to watch most of his teammates to be slain by the Sentinels and Trevor Fitzroy. [Uncanny X-Men #281-282] Back in Nova Roma, Empath was exposed for manipulating Magma and the citizens of Nova Roma into believing they were indeed an ancient civilization, when they were not ... or so it seemed at the time. Hurt by his betrayal and having lost any sense of identity, Magma quit the relationship and left, while Empath remained in Nova Roma to make amends for his mistakes. Many months later, was recruited to be part of X-Corporation L.A., where he is working alongside his former enemy Sunspot as the communications director of the office. [X-Treme X-Men #31] When Magma too joined the team she was not impressed with working alongside her former boyfriend. Even worse, when Empath fell under the influence of nemesis Elias Bogan, he made him manipulate the emotions of Magma and Sunspot, having them kiss right in front of his own eyes. However it seems that none of the three recall any memory of this incident. [X-Treme X-Men #34-35]

Fan Boy Real Name: Arnie Lunt
Status: deceased

Young Arnie was always picked on for his ugly looks, but when his reality-manipulating mutant power surfaced he took control of his entire hometown, either killing people or twisting their bodies like it suited him. Angry with X-Statix over his favorite member U-Go Girl’s death, he battled the team and was more powerful than all combined, however team leader Orphan then offered him to join, sensing that Arnie wanted nothing more than to belong. His true identity hidden with a mask, Arnie became the mysterious Fanboy, and X-Statix were forced to pretend to be a friendly, idealistic group, not wanting to face Arnie’s wrath. When the media uncovered his identity, the Orphan had to speed up his plan. He had sensed a weak spot in Arnie’s heart and had hoped he would soon overtax himself, but during the next mission he had sometime ally Lacuna slip bin between time, and kills the Fanboy with a lethal injection. To the press it was said that Fanboy died a heroic death, saving them from a rampaging mutant. [X-Statix #1-5]

Fantomex Status: undetermined

A mutant thief, Fantomex first met Xavier and Phoenix in Paris, as he was seeking sanctuary in the local office of the X-Corporation. [New X-Men #128] He also warned them that the crisis in the Channel Tunnel, which the X-Corporation team was attending to, was caused by Weapon XII, a genetically engineered monster with bacterial properties, infecting his enemies until they become him. Eventually Fantomex helped to get the situation under control by killing Weapon XII, and also Darkstar, who had been infected by it. It was only then that he revealed himself as a creation of the Weapon Plus program, namely Weapon XIII. [New X-Men #130] He next appeared in Afghanistan where he rescued the mutant Dust from a group of slavers, and handed her over to Wolverine. [New X-Men #133] Fantomex also aided Wolverine and Cyclops during their venture to „the World“, where he revealed more of his mysterious past and his ties to the Weapon X and Weapon Plus programs. [New X-Men #141-145] Recently, Fantomex has begun to hunt down the man responsible for his creation, John Sublime, who actually has been reported dead twice already. Still Fantomex found his grave empty, only a note in the coffin with the word "Roanoke“ on it. Heading to this town, Fantomex ran into Agent Zero, the current Weapon X program’s most capable operative, and Wolverine, who is trying to uncover the program’s dark secrets. The three mutants pooled their efforts to get John Sublime, but things kept getting stranger when they received word from the men that one of them is a mole, still belonging to the Weapon X program „body and soul”. [Weapon X (2nd series) #23-25] Learning that his friend Shortpack was in danger, Fantomex tried to find him, but only ended up crossing paths with a hunted Mystique. Not quite prepared to re-live their apparent shared history, they soon parted ways, and Shortpack was later rescued by Mystique. [Mystique #20-24] Note: Fantomex currently appears in the Weapon X: Days of Future Now limited series.

Feedback Real Name: Albert Louis
Status: inactive

Albert Louis discovered his mutant abilities at a bad time, namely at the peak of a wave of anti-mutant hysteria in Canada. He was hunted down by the Hardliners, a mutant-hating group equipped with robotic suits, but Alpha Flight saved him and took him in for training. [Alpha Flight (1st series) #118-120] Albert received the codename Feedback, however soon Department H decided to shut down the Flight programs and lay low for a while because of the anti-mutant / super hero hysteria. [Alpha Flight (1st series) #130] Several months later, Alpha Flight was restarted, however Feedback was not part of it. His current whereabouts are unknown.

Feral Real Name: Maria Callasantos
Status: active member of X-Corporation Mumbai

While in prison for murdering her family, the former Morlock discovered to have contracted the Legacy Virus, which is why she was busted out to join a group with the task to recover the High Evolutionary’s Isotope E, as it might hold a possible cure for the fatal disease, but Feral and her partners were betrayed by their employers, the Acolytes.[Quicksilver #8-9] Nonetheless, with the Legacy Virus cured worldwide, Maria is rid of this problem. Some time later Feral was offered to join King Bedlam‘s New Hellions, which provided her with a chance to strike at her former teammates X-Force. She even cut through Siryn’s vocal chords, crippling her sonic powers. [X-Force #90] For reasons yet unknown, Feral joined the Mumbai branch of Xavier‘s X-Corporation, what is even more odd still is that she is working alongside her sister, Thornn, a woman she hates with a vengeance. [New X-Men #133]

Feron Real Name: unknown
Status: inactive

Excalibur’s young magician of an order of monks tried to help Meggan when she fell into a catatonic state after Captain Britain was lost in the timestream. She was sitting under a waterfall not responding at all, but Feron thought that he could get to her with his arcane might. However he underestimated the great empathic nature of Meggan, instead of releasing her, he joined her in her catatonic state. [Excalibur #70] While the team was gone for a mission, Feron discorporated and was washed away with the river. He later found the Crazy Gang and joined them in an attack on Excalibur because he wanted revenge for being forgotten about. The team apologized and made friends with him again. [Excalibur #124] Feron’s whereabouts and plans after Excalibur’s disbanding are unknown.

Fixx Real Name: unknown
Status: inactive / undetermined

The X.U.E. telepath made a worthy addition to X-Factor and was also to be part of a restructured line-up, but after Havok’s apparent death, the team disbanded off-panel. While the fate and whereabouts of other members have since then been addressed, Fixx was never mentioned again. [last seen in X-Factor #149] The mystery regarding her host body’s true identity, an amnesiac bus accident victim, was never cleared up.

Flashback Real Name: Gardner Munroe
Status: retired

Flashback had already made it to the ranks of Beta Flight when the Canadian government stopped funding Department H and the Flight program was shut down. While the Alpha team decided to remain together as a freelance group, the remaining trainees of Beta and Gamma Flight returned to their former lives, and feeling rejected they were easily manipulated by Roxxon Enterprises into forming Omega Flight, Alpha’s personal enemies. [Alpha Flight (1st series) #11-12] During the team’s second battle with Alpha Flight, Omega’s leader Delphine Courtney used one of Flashback temporal counterparts as human shield when she was attacked by a robot. The temporal self got killed, and Flashback feared that he would die too once his body would catch up with the killed counterpart’s time. [Alpha Flight (1st series) #28] It was assumed by everyone that this was indeed what happened to him, for Flashback just wasn’t in his prison cell one morning. [mentioned in Alpha Flight (1st series) #76] However, it turned out that after witnessing his own death, Gardner swore off using his powers ever again, and destroyed his costume (as his counterpart had been wearing it). [Alpha Flight (3rd series) #9] Years later however, Gardner approached the All-New, All-Different Alpha Flight while they were in battle, pleading for their help, as he kept discovering his opposite color costume everywhere he went. The All-New, All-Different Alpha Flight agreed to help, and surmised that if they went back in time and prevented the death of Flashback's future counterpart, things would return to normal. [Alpha Flight (3rd series) #9-12] With the harrowing mission over, the current Gardner Munroe is no longer having problems and has retired.

Flex II Real Name: Adrian Corbo
Status: undetermined, mentioned to have been downgraded to Beta Flight

Despite his inexperience, Flex became part of a reorganized Alpha Flight program by Department H, yet with most of the original Alphans returning to the fold it was decided to place Flex and the other newer recruits into a reopened Beta Flight program. [Wolverine (2nd series) #142] The current status of the group is unknown. With their leader Guardian III dead and Flex’s half-brother Radius having left to join the X-Corps there was not much of a team left. Besides, they apparently were no longer active by the time the original Alpha Flight got kidnapped, prompting Sasquatch to assemble an all-new, all-different Alpha Flight. [Alpha Flight (3rd series) #1]
