Surprisingly most of the characters seen in
this profile where part of the team Cyclops used on Earth-2128 to
attack Professor W's school. Most famous member of the school for
X-fans is the Exile Nocturne, who was instrumental in stopping Cyclops'
team as seen in the flashback story in Exiles#41-42.
Cyclops' team of mutants that attacks Professor
W's school in Exiles I#41-42, but writer/artist of that story, Jim
Calafiore, confirmed that they are all Earth-2128 counterparts.
Exiles (Millennial Visions 2001) should not be confused with:
A former resident of Earth-902. A tough, rude, sullen member of X-Punks, Beast found himself thrust onto the Exiles team from his home reality. He often took pleasure from being as difficult for the team as possible and generating dissension within it.

Blink from Earth-1026 was on the team since its foundation. She was convinced that she would never return to her home reality. Watching teammate after teammate either die or get returned to their home reality, Blink became distant and adopted a fatalist attitude.
--X-Men Millennial Visions 2001 - "Exiles: Static Problematic"
Cyclops hailed from Earth-2182, a dimension where Wolverine had murdered Xavier while under the control of the Shadow King and taken his place leading the X-Men as Professor W out of guilt. Due to Wolverine's involvement in Jean's death, Cyclops led the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants against the X-Men only to find himself thrust onto the Exiles team. Determined to retake his mentor's dream, Cyclops only cared about getting home. Upon eventually finding himself back on Earth-2182, Cyclops recruited a new Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, composed mostly of Earth-2182 counterparts of his previous Exiles teammates and led them in an attack on the Xavier Institute after an FBI raid uncovered their existence. While leading the attack, Cyclops was repeatedly asked by Nightcrawler to call off the attack but the bitter Cyclops felt as if the X-Men had forced his hand. Upon seeing the young Lucien, now transformed into the living Legacy Virus called Plague, Cyclops was shocked when his teammate, Earth-2182's Hyve, attacked Plague, only to be destroyed by Plague's Virus powers. Responding, Cyclops killed Plague and eventually, all of the Brotherhood and X-Men members were downed when Armageddon destroyed Radioactive Man's containment suit. Surviving the subsequent explosion, Cyclops confronted Professor W, destroying his exo-suit and holding him up while accusing the Professor of being a liar. The X-Men's Nocturne, Kitty Pryde and the Xavier Institute soon arrived and Nocturne failed to take possession of Cyclops' body. Recovering, Nocturne possessed Armageddon and used his telekinesis to force Professor W to raise his arms to Cyclops' chest. Surprised at seeing the paralyzed Professor W moving, Cyclops was stabbed when Nocturne telekinetically forced Professor W's claws to pop out.

Hyve of Earth-9470 was an amorphous hive of ravenous black insects that could strip the flesh from bone. It did not communicate and only followed the team out of instinct.

Rogue of Earth-2182 encountered the Super-Skrull in her home reality, where she permenantly absorbed his powers and personality traits. She was pulled from her reality to join the Exiles.

White Dwarf was the youngest member of the Exiles, taken from Earth-1010's Project Cerebro-X. His youth quickly became a hindrance as no one in the group was willing to mentor the young, superhumanly strong and dense mutant.
