Membership: Jean Grey, Nightcrawler (or Beast?), Kitty Pryde, Psylocke, Rogue, Storm, Charles Xavier, two unrevealed others (see comments)
Purpose: To protect Professor X
Affiliations: Vice President Carl Denti; formerly President Valerie Cooper,
Enemies: The Friends of Humanity
Base of Operations: Genosha
First Appearance: X-Men Millennial Visions
History: (X-Men Millennial Visions - "In His Professor's Secret Service" (fb) - BTS) - When Valerie Cooper was elected President, her pro-mutant stance saw her seeking peace between mutants and humans. With her first act, President Cooper ended the trade embargo with Magneto's Genosha and called for a peace summit between mutants and humans. Unfortunately at the summit, Magneto, his son Quicksilver and President Cooper herself were killed, with the anti-mutant Friends of Humanity claiming responsibility. Following Magneto and Quicksilver's funerals, the X-Men became public representatives of mutantkind as Vice President Carl Denti called for a new summit. Shortly thereafter, the X-Men learned that Magneto had named Charles Xavier his successor in Genosha and both human and mutantkind accepted Xavier's taking over the Genoshan reigns.
(X-Men Millennial Visions - "In His Professor's
Secret Service") - When the Friends of Humanity promised more
anti-mutant attacks and with Xavier now an obvious target for the
terrorists, the X-Men took to becoming Professor X's bodyguards,
leading him quietly down a conference hall and protecting him from
three assassination attempts at that very conference.

To clarify who is who, the X-Men are (from top left,
going clockwise): Storm, Rogue, Jean Grey, Psylocke, two shadowed
members (based on the outlines, I'd guess the one in the background is
Colossus and the one in the foreground is Cyclops), Nightcrawler
(though I suppose it could also be Beast with a different
hairstyle...hard to tell for sure), Kitty Pryde and Professor X. In
actuality, Charles Xavier is the only X-Man mentioned by name and none
of the others are identified at all, but many can be identified fairly
easily if you know your X-Men. :)
