History: (X-Men Millennial Visions 2001 - "X-Men X: Colossus & Nightcrawler" (fb) - BTS) - The X-Man Colossus died finding a cure for a mutant-killing virus. Following his death, his body was mysteriously stolen. As tensions between mutants and humans worsened, the X-Men found themselves unable to solve the mystery of Colossus's body, as they had to focus much of their time on humanity.

 (X-Men Millennial Visions 2001 - "X-Men X: Colossus & Nightcrawler (fb) - BTS) - Colossus mysteriously returned to the X-Men a mindless shell. Unable to speak, Colossus's body appeared to have survived death and wandered with the X-Men as a sort of Frankenstein's Monster.

 (X-Men Millennial Visions 2001 - "X-Men X: Scott Summers & Jean Grey"/"X-Men X: Angel & Iceman"/"X-Men X: Colossus & Nightcrawler"/"X-Men X: Wolverine") -  The X-Men decided to blend in with humans to better ease the tensions between mutants and humans.

(Paradise X: Heralds#3) - The X-Men, gathered for Professor Xavier's funeral, were seen in the Citadel, as X-51 and his Heralds fled from the gathered Watchers. Bloodstorm mournfully noted Charles' death.

Comments: Created by Alex Ross, fleshed out by Jim Krueger.

Profile by Proto-Man

Jacob Cundiff added the info for Heralds#3 and had following to say:
The appearance in Heralds#3 was mostly a cameo. If it wasn't for the fact that Jean Grey was at the funeral, it could've been the X-Men of Earth X; then again, it could be Madeline Pryor masquerading as Jean.

Clarifications:

X-Men X (Millennial Visions 2001) should not be confused with:


ANGEL

After the X-Men decided to blend in with humanity, Warren Worthington had to hide his immense wings and blue skin. In order to appear human, the Angel no longer made public appearances or flew during the light of day. He remained with the X-Men, only revealing his powers in emergencies.

Angel had the same feathery wings capable of flight as his Earth-616 counterpart.

COLOSSUS

Peter Rasputin died finding a cure for a mutant-killing virus. After his death, his body was mysteriously stolen as tensions between mutants and humans escalated. With the X-Men busy with human affairs, no one was able to discover who had stolen his body but one day, Colossus seemingly returned to the team without a soul. It appeared that Peter's metallic body truly was indestructible and had survived even death. Now a mindless monster, Colossus did not have any feelings nor guilt over destroying anything in his path.

Colossus existed as a metallic shell with superhuman strength, invulnerability, and the ability to survive without oxygen or food.

--Wizard's X-Men Spectacular (X-Men Millennial Visions 2001 - "X-Men X: Colossus & Nightcrawler,"






JEAN GREY

Jean Grey embraced the idea of the X-Men blending in with humanity. While all of the X-Men knew that most of humanity was fearful of mutants, Jean could sense their fear and hatred as a telepath.

Jean Grey had telepathy and telekinesis, like her Earth-616 counterpart.

--Wizard's X-Men Spectacular (X-Men Millennial Visions 2001 - "X-Men X: Scott Summers & Jean Grey,"




















ICEMAN

Despite his being a member of the Defenders, the Champions, and the X-Men, Bobby Drake still felt like a loser. He was able to adapt to life as a human better than any of the other X-Men due to his experience at acting "normal." Having lived a normal life all of his life, he worried that he would be insignificant in the long run. His feelings of insignificance soon made Bobby the loner of the X-Men, but he preferred the life of an X-Man to life as a normal human.

Iceman had the same ability to freeze moisture in the air as his Earth-616 counterpart.

--Wizard's X-Men Spectacular (X-Men Millennial Visions 2001 - "X-Men X: Angel & Iceman,"










NIGHTCRAWLER

Kurt Wagner felt that his former life as an acrobat was training for the life of an X-Man. Like Cyclops, Nightcrawler did not like the idea of losing Xavier's dream of peaceful coexist between mutants and humans by blending in with the humans. Kurt remained with the X-Men, but soon grew tired of having to constantly use makeup to disguise his blue appearance.

Nightcrawler could easily blend into shadows like his Earth-616 counterpart and could presumably teleport.

SCOTT SUMMERS

While he did not like the idea of losing Xavier's dream in favor of blending in with humans, Scott Summers remained the visionary X-Man.

Scott had the same optic energy blast abilities as his Earth-616 counterpart.

WOLVERINE

As hatred against mutants escalated, Wolverine remained a determined soldier fighting to save a world that hated his kind. While the other X-Men disguised their abilities using hoods and such, Wolverine opted to just change into civilian clothing while undercover.

Wolverine had the same adamantium claws as his Earth-616 counterpart, and presumably had the healing factor and senses to match.
