    Charles was named after his father's long deceased friend, Charles Xavier, who died during his father's "formative years". His birth was considered a miracle by the X-Men as his mother still could not control her powers and ran the risk of killing him the entire time he grew inside her and later on when he was birthed. Despite his complicated birth and miraculous conception, he grew into a normal child despite the death and destruction around him. Two of his closet friends were Blink and his personal robot caretaker, Nanny. He also enjoyed a healthy dose of a stable family despite his father and mother being leaders of the X-Men, as the rebellion against Apocalypse was known.

    Loss of innocence

    When a mysterious man known as Bishop entered the lives of the X-men he saw his friends shuffled off to battle. He remained relatively unaffected until Apocalypse himself came to their house. Nanny quickly sped off with him and manged to keep him safe for hours before the X-Calibur traitor, Strong Guy, destroyed Nanny and took him directly to Apocalypse.

    He remained a captive until his mother freed him and his father. As the missiles approached they embraced the end together as a family. But the end never came.

    Life after Apocalypse

    He survived the fall of Apocalypse and enjoyed greater mobility in the restored America where his family was raised to celebrity status. Just as before, though, he was captured this time by the Guthrie family. He was rescued by his mom and friends and is being raised by his mother while his father is incarcerated. He is the last living child of Magneto. His friend Blink has also gone missing.

    Apparently he was killed by Demon Ock in front of Magneto.
