Students come and students go, especially given all the drama of being a mutant and at the Xavier Institute in particular. Below is a list of former students of the Xavier Institute; some left the school willingly, other were forced or find themselves incapacitated by outside circumstances.

Powers: animal mutation gives him heightened vision, agility, and reaction time, a pointed beak, and feathered wings that fold up along his forearms or extend to allow limited flight
- Beak received a commendation at the Institute’s first prize-giving ceremony for his heroism.
- Beak became romantically involved with his classmate Angel Salvatore and she became pregnant. They have at least six offspring who all possess both bird-like and fly-like physical characteristics to varying degrees.
- Beak was recently drafted into the group of dimension-hopping mutants known as the Exiles. He has since proven instrumental in unraveling the truth behind the team’s mysterious “sponsor”, the Timebroker. [Exiles #48]

- Glob Herman was injured after setting himself aflame and going on a rampage. When he recovered from these injuries, he was sent to a human jail to atone for the crimes he committed as a member of the Omega Gang.
- Glob has yet to return to the Xavier Institute. Several background characters depicted in New Mutants (2nd series) and New X-Men: Academy X have had jelly-like appearances but it has been confirmed that they were not Glob Herman.
