The X-Babies were created by Mojo for his own television broadcast. Known members of the group include Cike (Lil' Cyclops), Shower (Lil' Storm), Lil' Wolvie, Shugah (Lil' Rogue), Lil' Iceman, Lil' Longshot, Lil' Dazzler, Lil Colossus, and possibly more- the line up usually (though, not necessarily), reflects the current line-up of X-Men. In their first appearance, they escaped from Mojoworld with the help of Ricochet Rita. They eventually returned to Mojo, thinking it more wise to be in a reality where they are liked and loved then in the harsh outdoors. This however has not stopped form from escaping again on several occasion, seeking out their older counterparts for aid. They often use "th" instead of an 's' such as "Thorm" instead of "Storm".
The X-Babies where created by Chris Claremont and Art Adams and first appeared in X-Men Annual issue 12 (1988). The X-babies where first introduced in X-men Annual 12, but two years before, in Uncanny X-men annual 10, the real X-men where already transformed in younger versions of themselves (looking a lot like the X-babies).
