In honor of THE big event finally getting here, I thought I'd make a list to cover one of my favorite aspects of this game: the rival school angle. Listed here are some proposed schools to be added to the game in future events. Some have been alluded to in game before but never made an appearance and some are just ones I thought were fun and made up. This extra-long partially to make up for the fact that that I haven’t made a character list
in a while. Here's
the companion to this list of all the schools already in game. Hope you enjoy!
Note: Being listed on here does not preclude a character from being added to a future list (If I ever get back to those) Avengers Academy – West Coast Comic Version: Avengers Academy Comic Version’s Story

: Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters Comic Version’s Story
: (I guess, despite my usual exclusion of X-Men, if I’m going to make a list like this, I have to include the original Super-School) Established by powerful mutant telepath Charles Xavier to take in and train young mutants in order to protect them from a world that hates and fears them. Staff
: Charles Xavier, pretty much every one of the X-Men at some point. Students
: Any X-Man that joined under the age of 20, numerous other young mutants. Proposed Game Version’s Story
: After the existence of mutants are revealed to the world, Magneto, the Master of Magnetism, attacks the Avengers Academy having been lead to believe they are a threat to mutantkind. It’s up to the Avengers Academy and Magneto’s own students the Xavier’s School X-Men to team up and convince Magneto to stand down. Staff of Game Version
Students of Game Version
- Professor X - Charles Xavier – Powerful telepath and leader of the X-Men
- Magneto – Erik Lehnsherr – Co-headmaster of the Xavier’s School. Has powerful magnetic powers and a strong desire to protect young mutants at all costs.
: I’m sure everyone has a different idea of who the first group of X-Men should be but here’s who I think would make the most sense as first additions:
- Cyclops – Scott Summers – a reserved young man with uncontrollable force beams that shoot out from his eyes. He prevents disaster from his eyebeams though a combination of ruby quartz glasses and obsessive self-discipline.
- Marvel Girl – Jean Grey – a young mutant telepath and telekinetic. She has potential for incredible power and doesn’t like being told what to do.
- Iceman – Bobby Drake – the youngest of the class. A jokester with ice powers.
- Storm – Ororo Munroe – a regal and dignified Kenyan girl with the ability to control the weather.
- Wolverine – James “Logan” Howlett – (I considered making him a staff member but decided the idea of a teenage Wolverine was one of the most amusing things I could think of) a hot-headed Canadian mutant with claws, healing factor, and a distaste for authority.
I have a number of half-formed ideas for a future follow-up list (Thunderbolts, Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S., Nextwave, A.R.M.O.R., Bagalia, etc). If I can flesh these ideas out a bit, I may make a sequel to this list. Thoughts? Questions? Anything I missed? Let me know! Thanks!
