X-Factor appears in 1554 issues.
Archangel is capable of flying at great speeds and for great distances. He can reach top speeds of over 100 mph. His wings are extremely durable and, like a large bird, they are extremely powerful. His bones are hollow to assist his ability to fly. He has an accelerated metabolism and has nearly no body fat. He is able to carry up to 200 pounds in flight. Archangel also has enhanced eyesight. He has the ability to heal fatal injuries by mixing his blood with those he is trying to heal provided they have a compatible blood type. He has spent countless hours training with the X-Men in hand-to-hand and aerial combat.
Depowered after M-Day.
Member of the team X-Factor. Originally a government sponsored organization founded by the original X-men, it has since to become an independent investigation agency led by longtime member Jamie Madrox, the Multiple Man.
Bailey Hoskins is a mutant selected to join the X-Men but he can only use his powers once.
One of the original X-Men. Beast has superhuman strength, agility, endurance, and speed. He has strong fingers and toes, and can scale walls. Hank has great manual and pedial dexterity, and can perform several tasks using both his hands and feet. He has enhanced senses such as night-vision and a sense of smell that can track any human. He also has a slight healing factor. Later on, when he has taken on a secondary mutation, his physical abilities (smelling, sight and reflexes) are enhanced even further.
When she called the mutant hunters to inform them of the Vanisher's whereabouts, Boom-Boom was taken in by the Beast & Iceman. As one of their wards, they tried to teach her self-restraint (i.e. not to blow everything up).
Caliban is a mutant with the ability to sense other mutants within a 25 mile radius of himself. His original powers also included the ability to increase his strength to slightly superhuman levels as his adreniline would rise. Caliban could also absorb fear-generated psionic energy from others and redirect that energy back at them. Caliban was recruited by Callisto to use his tracking abilities to help assemble the underground community known as the Morlocks. Caliban was saved from the Morlock Massacre by fellow morlock Leech, and then again by the original X-Factor.
A group formed by Scott when the original five X-men reunited
With the cerebral ability to understand all languages, Cypher was considered to be one of the weakest New Mutants. He was best friends with Warlock, but was killed while defending Wolfsbane in battle. He was forcibly resurrected during Necrosha, and soon returned to the X-Men as a powerful strategist.
Danger was once the control unit for the X-Men's Danger Room. Since gaining sentience and being released, Danger has taken humanoid form and joined with the X-Men.
Darwin is a mutant that evolves to survive anything, though it is involuntary. He left the X-Factor Investigations team after the battle with Hela in Las Vegas. He is trying to cope with his new acquired powers.
Daughter of an anti-mutant activist, Georgia Dakei has been homeschooled since her mutant powers manifested. X-factor came to rescue her.
Reigning from the distant future of Earth #1191, Fixx was a commanding officer in the X.S.E. Unhappy that their beliefs differed from the original ones, she created the X.U.E. to be more proactive.
Forge was a Cheyenne Native American. He was trained in the mystic arts by Naze, a shaman in his tribe. He was also a mutant with the ability to invent pretty much any mechanical device he can think of.
One day he created a device that could detect mutants and extraterrestrials. The device also had the ability to remove the powers of a superhuman. A government agent, Henry Peter Gyrich, used the device and shot the X-Man, Storm. Forge rescued Storm and the two developed a relationship. Forge stopped Gyrich's plan to rid the world of superhumans.
Later he joined the government team of mutants, X-Factor and is a close ally to the X-Men.
A charming and master thief who joined the X-Men, Gambit possesses the mutant ability to charge inanimate objects with kinetic energy which causes them to explode (in fact, his signature move is throwing kinetically-charged playing cards at his opponents). Gambit is also extremely agile and hypnotically persuasive because of his powers.
Reigning from the distant future of Earth #1191, Greystone first was a member of the X.S.E. Unhappy that their beliefs differed from the original ones, she created the X.U.E. to be more proactive.
Brother to Scott Summers, Cyclops, Alex has moved from his shadow and has proven himself as an X-Man.
Alex's mutant powers allows him to absorb cosmic energy into his cells and transform it into hot plasma. He can control the intensity of his blasts. His blasts can simply knock a person down or cause objects to explode.
Originally Iceman could lower the temperature of his body and encase himself in an ice armor of varying shape and consistency. He has since gained the ability to turn his body into a form of organic ice. He can also freeze the moisture in the air and can create objects such as slides, ladders, and projectiles. He can reform any part of his body in his ice form, and can augment his shape and size. He has demonstrated the ability to animate ice forms by creating figures and through rapid freezing and unfreezing of their structure, and thus creating movement. These figures do not gain intelligence, and he is still in the developmental stage of this ability as it requires much concentration.
Jean Grey is a member of the X-men and is a very strong telepathic mutant. She is often consumed by the entity Phoenix, who is one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel Universe.
Layla has demonstrated telepathic abilities during the House of M, but has not since M-Day. Her precognition has not been fully explored, but seems to be able to perceive almost any event's outcome long enough before it occurs to casually (and generally cryptically) warn people if she feels it is warranted. Her abilities were shown to have limits when she was surprised to learn that her abilities to understand future events are hindered when dealing with mutants that Quicksilver, mutants he has re-powered, and Damian Tryp.
A former Morlock and frequent friend of the X-Men. The green-skinned Leech was orphaned as a toddler. His parents left him to die when his mutations became apparent. He has the power to negate all superhuman abilities within 10 yards of him.
Longshot is an extra dimensional rebel warrior created through genetic engineering. He has amazingly good luck, as well as superhuman agility. Formerly a member of the X-Men and of X-Factor Investigations, he is currently operating on his own.
Monet, known as Know-It-All, appeared in the alternate reality AoA as a member of the Generation Next team, led by Colossus and Shadowcat. She was never seen in person, only on computer screen, making it likely that she used her mutant powers to fuse with the mainframe computer. When Magneto needed to locate a mutant with chrono-temporal powers, Know-It-All used her abilities to search through s files, locating the best match in Illyana Rasputin, who was being held at the Seattle Core. During the rescue mission, Know-It-All kept Colossus and Shadowcat updated. After the fall of Apocalypse, it is not known what happed to Monet.
Once a mutant superhero, the former Multiple Man spends his time fighting for the disenfranchised residents of Mutant Town as the proprietor of X-Factor Investigations.
Jamie's body produces exact duplicates (dupes) of himself whenever he absorbs kinetic energy. Examples of this can be as mundane as snapping his fingers, clapping his hands together, bumping into a wall, or being struck. He has also been able to create duplicates with little to no physical damage after being struck by Cyclops' optic blast or Gambit's exploding cards (both abilities use pure kinetic energy). When a duplicate splits off, the dupe is also wearing whatever clothing Jamie was wearing at the time.
True to her name, Mystique is often an enigma. Is she a mutant terrorist, or a misguided mutant with a good heart?
Mystique is a mutant metamorph. She can psionically shift the atoms and molecules of her body and of whatever clothing she is wearing so as to change her and its appearance. As a result she can cause herself to look and sound like an exact duplicate of any human, humanoid, or semi-humanoid being of either sex, wearing virtually any kind of clothing. Her control is so exact that she can precisely duplicate another person's retina pattern in her own eyes, finger, palm and skin-pore patterns on her own hands and skin, and vocal cords to match voices to the point of corresponding voiceprints.
Longtime ally/traveling-companion to Adam Warlock and Mischevious Teleporter of the Infinity Watch. Poor hygienic habits.
Polaris possesses the ability to manipulate magnetism. Although she has the potential to exercise all of the powers that Magento has, as yet she has only used powers involving the manipulation of magnetic, electrical, and gravitic fields. Moreover, she cannot summon as great an amount of energy as Magneto can. The exact limits on the amount weight that she can magnetically lift at present have not been measured, but they are considerably below those of Magneto. Since she has preferred not to use her powers in combat situations, she has not worked nearly as hard to develop them as Magneto has. As with Magneto, it is unknown whether Polaris's powers are purely psionic or whether they derive from her physically.
Quicksilver is a mutant with superspeed. He is the son of Magneto, and twin brother of the Scarlet Witch.
Quicksilver was at first able to reach the speed of sound, which is about 770 mph, but exposure to the High Evolutionary's Isotope E made it possible for him to run at supersonic speeds of up to Mach 5, about 3805 mph. After losing his powers, Quicksilver regained mutant abilities because of the Terrigen Mists.
Random first appeared as a bounty hunter with the power to adapt his body to counteract any mutant power, and to fire projectiles from his gun-morphed forearms
He was hired by X-Factor to help in a few missions as a reluctant ally. He developed a freindship/ crush onPolaris.Later, it became apparent that Random was an agent of the Dark Beast, who used him to capture Havok. Random's true nature was also revealed, that of a young man with little control over his body's gelatinous properties who had received aid from McCoy, for which the Doctor was now demanding payment in the form of service.
Rictor is a mutant with the power to manipulate earth.
Rictor lost his powers after M-Day, but still is with the group X-Factor.
Ruby Summers is the daughter of Cyclops and Emma Frost in Bishop's future.
