(X-Men '92 II#7 - BTS) - Adam X founded the X-Tremists, a group of extremist mutants, including Marrow, Maggott and Random. The group decided to visit Lilapalooza, a momentous outdoor music festival headlined by Lila Cheney.
(X-Men '92 II#7) - When Lila Cheney suddenly teleported away in the middle of a concert (due to Fabian Cortez's involvement) the audience witnessed the government sanctioned X-Factor take to the stage. Seeing those who they viewed as mutant sellouts working with the government Adam X and the others believed they had been tricked and Sentinels would arrive any moment. Enraged Adam X and the others attacked X-Factor.
(X-Men '92 II#8) - During the fight that followed Adam X was attacked by Polaris while X-Factor kept telling them they had not come to arrest them. However when Charles Xavier arrived with Jubilee and two of his new students Monet and Chamber, the radical mutants focused their attention on Xavier. Eventually X-Men student M defeated Adam X after which President Robert Kelly arrived with his entourage breaking up the fight.
(X-Men '92 II#9) - The X-Tremists and other attendees of the Lilapalooza were in for a shock when suddenly the giant hand of the banished Celestial, Xodus the Forgotten, returned to their dimension. Unbeknownst to the mutants Xodus planned to destroy Earth fearing mutantkind would one day ascend and replace the Celestials. Chaos soon followed as the Lilapalooza attendees panicked until Xavier used his telepathic abilities to calm everybody. However, only Adam X proved immune and witnessed the arrival of the X-Men and Apocalypse with a following of "evil" mutants.
(X-Men '92 II#10) - In the end Xavier and Apocalypse worked together, knowing that only a world full of mutants could defeat Xodus the Forgotten and save the world from destruction. When millions of humans replied to Xavier's message to have their latent x-gene activated and join the fight against Xodus it was X-Men student Dead Girl with Xavier's help who used the Darkhold to do so, although Xavier gave his life in the process. Adam X then joined millions of mutants in the fight against Xodus.

The "previously" text of X-Men '92 II#9 (January, 2017) revealed Adam X's group of radical mutants were called the X-Tremists.
It doesn't get anymore 90's than Adam X, during the time intended to be the third Summers brother, the illegitimate offspring of D'Ken and Kate Summers. On Earth-616 this was debunked with the introduction of Vulcan as the third Summers brother.
