Overview of 2012
Two years have passed since the death of Professor Charles Xavier, the world's
greatest telepath and mentor to countless youth; it has been a chaotic journey
for the X-Men. Having dealt with everything from government internment camps for
mutants and new breeds of sentinels, to Magneto's minions and attempted
kidnappings of students, residents, and X-Men from the Xavier Institute. Despite
the hardships the X-Men had gone through, they remained strong in
promoting Xavier's dream and making efforts to co-exist with the world around
The Xavier Institute council continued to lead the X-Men and preside over the
Xavier Institute. In the summer of 2012, the council faced one of its most
pressing issues thus far - SentinelX15. Originally a government program, it was
taken over by a private group of investors who took the program for a new turn.
As a government program SentinelX15 was meant to protect human beings by zeroing
in on destructive mutant groups such as Magneto and his minions; however, under
its new owners, the program was being used to target all mutants and exterminate
colonies of mutants sprung up all across the U.S. as countless mutants fled into
hiding, attempting to escape the potential slaughter. However, more than half of
the hideouts were uncovered and the mutants -- men, women, and children -- were
brutally massacred. When word reached the mansion of the atrocious events
occurring around the nation, the X-Men assembled into teams and were flown out
to hundreds, if not thousands, of locations where Jean Grey had detected
mutant colonies via Cerebro. Other teams were sent to the locations of
SentinelX15 factories, where they obtained data on the sentinels and hindered
the manufacturing process. The X-Men worked night and day to prevent the
massacre of their fellow brethren, and in the process gained some public support
as the mutant massacres slowly became mainstream news.
end of winter in 2012, the X-Men eliminated the majority of the factories where
the sentinels were being built and successfully destroyed all the program
records for SentinelX15, thus eliminating any more creations of sentinel.
However, during these missions, the X-Men suffered even more losses that year
with the loss of three more teammates: Kaze Kaminari "WindRunner", Seta Yasha
"Hell", and Troyan.
new threats rising, questioning the safety of mutants everywhere, the Xavier
Institute council and the X-Men try their best to bring an end to the genocide.
