(Wolverine III#21 - BTS) - After manifesting his powers, Johan enrolled at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters.

(Wolverine III#21) - After learning that Wolverine had been turned evil by the Hand and Hydra, the X-Men feared he might cause a bloodbath at the school. For that reason, they gathered Johan and dozens of other students in a giant sleeping hall for their own safety. Kitty Pryde explained that it was for their own good: the hall was protected by the best security systems this side of the Pentagon.

(Wolverine III#25 - BTS) - Wolverine did show up to attack the school and eventually killed the students' teacher Northstar.

Comments: Created by Mark Millar (writer), John Romita jr. (pencils), Klaus Janson (inks).

Other students that might have been part of the same flying class are Aero (Melody Guthrie, Uncanny X-Men I#444), Butterfly (Lucy Priest, New X-Men I#131), Eosimias (Hong Lianje, New X-Men I#123), Hellion (Jullian Keller, New Mutants II#2), Pixie (Megan Gywnn, New X-Men II#5), Skylark (Greg Carlson, X-Men Unlimited II#3), Skywalker (New X-Men I#131), Wind Dancer (Sofia Mantega, New Mutants II#1). And their teacher most likely would have been Northstar.

Johan received his last name and code name in the Xavier Student Body entry in the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z HC#13.
