Puck I Real Name: Eugene Milton Judd
Status: active member of Alpha Flight, currently in space

As a mainstay of the former incarnations of Alpha Flight, Puck was also recruited when Department H recently re-started the Flight program. [Alpha Flight (2nd series) #1] Puck acted as senior member to newer recruits Radius, Flex and Murmur and helped them with their training and coping with superhero life. However after most original Alphans rejoined, the newer recruits were placed in a reopened Beta Flight. [Wolverine (2nd series) #142] Despite him not being among the team’s most powerful members, Puck’s experience and reliability make him a worthy addition, if not the secret heart and backbone of the team. However, Judd was recently captured along with the other original Alphans by the mysterious alien Plodex, which led to the formation of a new Flight team to save them. Upon the rescue of Judd and the originals, they departed for space to return the Plodex eggs to their homeworld. Puck is apparently unaware that his abandoned daughter was among his rescuers, ironically also calling herself Puck. [Alpha Flight (3rd series) #1-6]

Puck II Real Name: Zuzha Yu
Status: inactive

Apparently, the abandoned daughter of the original Puck, Sasquatch tricked the college-drop-out-turned-bartender into joining the All-New, All-Different Alpha Flight by promising her to explain why she was able to talk when she was in her mothers womb. [Alpha Flight (3rd series) #1-4] However, upon the rescue of the original Alphans, including Zuzha's supposed father, Zuzha did still not learn how she could talk while still in the womb. After starting a relationship with handsome teammate, Major Mapleleaf, Zuzha remained with the All-New, All-Different Alpha Flight, serving as the team’s most energetic member. [Alpha Flight (3rd series) #7-8] Following the disbanding of the All-New, All-Different Alpha Flight, Zuzha's whereabouts are unknown.

Quicksilver Real Name: Pietro Maximoff
Status: inactive

Pietro left X-Factor to sort things out with his estranged wife, Crystal, who was serving among the Avengers at the time [X-Factor #94-95]. For the sake of their daughter, Luna, they gave their marriage another shot and stayed with the team until the Avengers faced Onslaught. Earth Mightiest Heroes sacrificed themselves (actually they were transported into a pocket universe), but Pietro could not join them, as his mutant energy might have empowered Onslaught even further. [Marvel Universe: Onslaught] After mourning his loss, Quicksilver became the leader of the Knights of Wundagore, until suddenly Crystal and Earth’s heroes returned. However, she needed time to think and departed [Quicksilver #4]. Later, when the Knights also no longer needed Pietro’s leadership, he was left alone. During that time, he was approached to become part of Genosha’s cabinet and, believing to be the voice of reason to keep Magneto in check, he agreed. [Magneto Rex #3] As Magneto suddenly found a way to restore himself to full power, Pietro openly opposed his methods, which led to him being sent off the island. [Magneto: Dark Seduction #4] After this, Pietro for a time rejoined the Avengers, though after the Kang War he left again. [Avengers (3rd series) #55] Pietro also accompanied a team of X-Men who checked out the ruins of Genosha and was rather startled that some mutants there had built a huge dedication to his father, and helped to finish building the monument. [New X-Men #132] Following the supposed death of his father, recently Pietro accompanied his sisters, Wanda and Lorna, to Genosha, where they confronted Xavier over a burial for Magneto. [Uncanny X-Men #442-443] Pietro has since been vacationing in Greenland, though after learning of what had happened to his sister and the destruction of the Avengers, he arrived at Avengers Mansion before the team disbanded, armed with an apology. [Avengers: Finale]

Radius Real Name: Jared Corbo
Status: presumed deceased

Radius 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 him and the other newer recruits into a reopened Beta Flight program. [Wolverine (2nd series) #142] For reasons unknown, he left that group to join Banshee’s militant X-Corps. Radius was one of the few loyal members that actually believed in Banshee’s cause. When Mystique and her allies took over the place, Avalanche created a deep rift in the ground and closed it again after Radius fell down. Though Radius’ forcefield possibly might have saved him from the impact or from getting crushed by the moving ground, he probably suffocated after a short amount of time. His death was mourned by the X-Men and the remaining X-Corps members once the villains were defeated.[Uncanny X-Men #405-406]

Random Real Name: Marshall Evan Stone III
Status: captive of the Weapon X program

Random was an occasional hired help for X-Factor. As it later turned out, he once had needed the Dark Beast to control his powers and ever since was being blackmailed by him. McCoy also forced Random to lure Havok away from the team to capture and brainwash him. [X-Factor #118] However, Havok only faked that the brainwashing succeeded and played along, till he finally was able to uncover Dark Beast’s secret agenda. Hundreds of human infected Legacy patients were hidden in test pods in the mad scientist‘s lab. Random opted to watch over this people, while Havok reorganized X-Factor. [X-Factor #144] Later, he belonged to a group with the task to recover the High Evolutionary’s Isotope E , as it might hold a possible cure for the Legacy Virus, but Random and his partners were betrayed by their employers, the Acolytes. [Quicksilver #8-9] With the Virus cured overnight, Random was free of his job. Not much later, he was spotted on Genosha among Magneto’s troops, preparing for worldwide takeover. [X-Men (2nd series) #112] Apparently, Random left Genosha before the Sentinel massacre, though he found himself targeted by another mutant hunting agency - the revamped Weapon X program. Random was imprisoned in the Neverland concentration camp. Despite starting a riot, Random was not gassed like many others, possibly as the Director has deemed him useful for the program. [Weapon X (2nd series) #5] 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, Random 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]

Red Lotus Real Name: Paul Hark

The X-Men met Red Lotus, when they were investigating the murders of two Australian crimelords, one of them being Red Lotus‘ grandfather.

Revanche Real Name: Kwannon

Spiral had interweaved the minds and bodies of Kwannon, the Hand’s prime assassin, and the X-Man Psylocke, to such degree that, even though they still looked differently, they acted and thought more identical than twins. Both were convinced that they were the real Betsy Braddock deep down, but Revanche also had the European body to back up her claim. Unfortunately, it was this body that contracted the Legacy Virus. When Revanche hit the final stages of the illness, her telepathy was pushed to the max. She could even probe her own mind and realized that, deep down, she was Kwannon, the Asian ninja. She traveled back to Japan to visit her former lover, Nyoirin and asked him to kill her, since she did not want to suffer from the painful infection anymore. Upon dying, Kwannon telepathically returned all ”Betsy“ aspects to Psylocke halfway around the world. [X-Men (2nd series) #31]

Reyes, Dr. Cecilia Status: undetermined, last seen in Neverland

Though her heart’s desire is working as a medical doctor, Cecilia has been drawn into the X-Men time and again. After saving Nightcrawler’s life, she was forced to use a power enhancing drug called Rave to survive in a Neo stronghold. [X-Men (2nd series) #106] With Xavier’s help, Cecilia endured the painful withdrawal and seemed to have returned to her medical practice. [Uncanny X-Men #389] However, soon after, Cecelia was one of many mutants rounded up by Weapon X agents and imprisoned in the mutant concentration camp known as Neverland. Cecelia uses her medical skills to help other mutants try and survive in the camp. [Weapon X (2nd series) #5] When the secret of Neverland was about to be uncovered by Wolverine, the Weapon X program evacuated everyone from the prison.

Following Operation Zero Tolerance, X-Force parted ways with the overprotective Cable.

Rogue Real Name: Anna Marie
Status: active member of the (Adjectiveless) X-Men

Skin to skin contact with a telepathic Skrull girl resulted in an unknown side effect for Rogue; afterwards she began to randomly manifest powers of all people she ever absorbed before. [X-Men (2nd series) #107, Uncanny X-Men #388] Rogue decided to join Storm’s team on the search for the missing diaries of the late Destiny, but she objected that Gambit accompanies them too, fearing that her uncontrollable powers could harm or even kill her lover. [X-Men (2nd series) #109] However, the lovebirds were reunited when the X-Treme X-Men learned that Gambit was framed for murder in Australia. After helping him prove his innocence, the team went to Madripoor to stop an alien invasion. To make better use of her screwed-up absorption powers, Rogue had Sage jumpstart her and she was now able to consciously call up every power she had absorbed before. [X-Treme X-Men #8, 13] As a result of stopping the invasion from Dimension X, however, Rogue and Gambit both lost their powers, due to overtaxing their abilities and being impaled by a sword. Because of that, the two left the X-Treme team and set out on their own, for the first time in their lives able to explore a full relationship. [X-Treme X-Men #19, X-Treme X-Men X-Pose #2] Going by the alias "Anna Raven“, Rogue set up in Valle Soleada, where she worked as a mechanic until the X-Men happened to stop by for a visit. Drawn back in the seemingly endless mutant battles, Rogue had Sage jumpstart Gambit to make his power resurface, though the status of her own abilities has yet to be cleared up. [X-Treme X-Men #46] With the X-Men being restructured by Cyclops, Rogue and Gambit were assigned to Havok’s squad, something they were not happy about. [X-Treme X-Men #46, X-Men (2nd series) #157] On the new team’s first mission, however, tragedy fell on the happy couple, as Gambit’s newly restored powers are unstable and a card blew up in his face, blinding him, and the two spent the remainder of the mission bickering with each other, both helpless. [X-Men (2nd series) #158-160] With her powers apparently having returned by themselves, Rogue has regained her ability to temporarily siphon the powers of other mutants, and was able to aid her teammates in the Brotherhood's recent attack. [X-Men (2nd series) #161-164] However, relations between Rogue and Gambit remained strained and, when the X-Men were recently attacked by Golgotha, who made them act out their thoughts and feelings, Gambit admitted that he is glad they cannot touch, and Rogue kissed Wolverine, making them both doubt whether they should be together. [X-Men (2nd series) #169]

Rusty Real Name: Russel "Rusty“ Collins
Status: deceased

When the New Mutants needed to bring Dani Moonstar to Asgard because of a strange illness, they were attacked by Freedom Force trying to arrest Rusty. Skids and her lover hid behind a forcefield and told the rest of the team to depart, not knowing that the New Mutants would be gone for days. [New Mutants (1st series) #78] After hours, Skids tired and the couple were imprisoned. Even before their teammates learned about the incident, Rusty and Skids were busted out by the MLF, who used neurochips on them to turn them into loyal members. [New Mutants (1st series) #87] Later on, Magneto removed these implants and thankfully the couple joined his Acolytes.

Sabra Real Name: Ruth Bat-Seraph
Status: active member of X-Corporation Europe

The Israeli mutant, Sabra, was trained as an agent by the Mossad, the Secret Service of her country, and chosen to be the nation’s representative hero, much like Captain America is for the United States. Very early she learned about the painful consequences of prejudice when her husband and her son were killed in a terrorist bombing. For years, Sabra was a member of Xavier’s secret underground network and, when she found herself under attack by Prime Sentinels during Operation Zero Tolerance, she banded together with Iceman, Marrow and Cecilia Reyes. Together, they survived long enough till the real threat behind the organization was exposed and Bastion captured by SHIELD. [X-Men (2nd series) #67-69] Ever since, Sabra has been aiding the various X-teams in several occasions, like uncovering the truth about Joseph’s origin or helping Excalibur to battle the residue of Legion.

Sabretooth Real Name: Victor Creed
Status: undetermined

Captured by the X-Men and turned over to the authorities, Sabretooth was forced to join X-Factor, who kept him under control with a pain-inducing collar. Over time however Creed managed to get used to it‘s effects and bypassed the pain. He then assassinated the whole team and escaped. [X-Factor #136] Shortly afterwards, he was seen fighting Wolverine and had even become a deadlier opponent, as he now possessed an adamantium-laced skeleton. When Apocalypse wanted to transform Creed into his Horseman, Death, Wolverine intervened, knowing that an upgraded Sabretooth would be totally irresponsible and unstoppable. In his place, Logan underwent the process, during which he got infused with Creed’s adamantium. [Wolverine (2nd series) #145] After recovering from the painful operation, Creed helped out Mystique’s Brotherhood; but, having accomplished their goal, the death of Senator Kelly, the members returned to working alone. Creed was then recruited by the new Weapon X program, who again bonded the indestructible metal to his bones and also had implanted some mental inhibitors to make him follow their orders. [Wolverine (2nd series) #163-164] Still, Sabretooth found a way to bypass them and use the program’s resources for a personal vendetta against Wolverine. Although his ploy was discovered, Sabretooth was able to make an escape. [Wolverine (2nd series) #173-175] Several attempts of the Weapon X program to capture and re-recruit him were wasted effort or only of temporary success. However, the Weapon X program won’t stop trying to get him, for this loose end threatens their entire operation, as Creed was one of the few agents who knew the truth behind the mutant concentration camp Neverland. Additionally, Sabretooth is sole purpose to recognize that the head scientist, Dr. Windsor, is none other than Mr. Sinister in disguise, and he has already used threatened to expose him once. [Weapon X (2nd series) #8-13] Later, Creed was hired by Michael Grand, the head of MegaCorp to hunt down Sinister, who wanted revenge on him. In return, Creed received a hefty pay check. [Weapon X (2nd series) #26-28] Sabretooth then joined up with a new Brotherhood, which planned an all-out assault on the Xavier Institute. During battle, Sabretooth jibed Northstar by letting slip that he knows where Aurora is. Jean-Paul beat Sabretooth to a pulp before he could get an answer and, later in the battle, Wolverine “disposed of him“. [X-Men (2nd series) #161-164]

Sage Real Name: Tessa
Status: personal aide of the Hellfire Club’s Lord Imperial (Sunspot)

Though most of the X-Men did not fully trust her for the years she worked within the Hellfire Club, which Tessa claimed to have been doing undercover for Xavier, Storm still asked her to join the group that searched for Destiny’s missing diaries, since her analytical abilities would have been essential to decipher the precog’s entries. [X-Men (2nd series) #109] During the missions with the new team, Sage revealed yet another ability – she can read other’s DNA and even jumpstart others to either manifest latent mutations or to further develop existing gifts. [X-Treme X-Men #3, 10, 13] Even with the quest for the diaries at an end, Tessa remained with the X-Treme team while several other members departed. [X-Treme X-Men #19] Bishop and she have started up some sort of a partnership and, while he tries to get close to her more human side, they have used their special skills to investigate two strange happenings at the Xavier Institute and other places. [X-Treme X-Men #20-23, New X-Men #140-141] Slowly but surely having earned the respect of her teammates, Sage even coordinated the X-Men’s attack on Elias Bogan in Storm’s absence and, while fighting him, she also she also revealed the circumstances of her first meeting with Xavier. [X-Treme X-Men #44] With the X-Treme X-Men’s reintegration with the X-Men, Tessa continued on Storm’s team, the X.S.E., and had her own "Cyberpath“ room to analyze incoming data from all over the planet and assign the other X-Men to the many different threads.[Uncanny X-Men #444-445] However, Sage recently turned against her teammates when she was under control of the diabolical Fury but, once free from the Fury, Tessa was an asset in taking the Fury down. [Uncanny X-Men #446-447] After a run-in with Viper, the X-Men were made aware of a new Hellfire Club, and Sage received an offer from Sebastian Shaw to return to him. [Uncanny X-Men 448-449, 551] The X-Men investigated their missing teammate, only to enter a battle with the new Hellfire Club, which resulted in Roberto DaCosta a.k.a.

She reached the decision that Xavier’s dream no longer worked for her, and wanted to try and find her own way of changing the world, starting by getting a college education at the University of Chicago. She had no problems to keep up with the courses, yet daily life was a challenge. Living alone for the first time in her life, Kitty had to deal with bills, rent, laundry, supermarkets and at the same time was still wondering if retiring from the X-Men was the right move.
