(X-Men '92 Infinite Comic#8 - BTS) - After Professor Charles Xavier opened the Xavier Institute to the public, Angelo Espinosa was one of the many young teenagers that enrolled at the Xavier Institute. Because of her mutation, she took the codename Skin.

(X-Men '92 Infinite Comic#8) - Gambit taught a class to the newly enrolled Skin, Husk, Chamber and M.

(Secret Wars#9 - BTS) - Earth-15730 along with all other domains of Battleworld were returned to their former state after the defeat of Doom.

(X-Men '92 II#1) - Sometime during the first day of the semester Maverick came to the school to warn the X-Men of a looming threat. Although classes were dismissed Skin, Leech and M tried to get a peek of Maverick.

(X-Men '92 II#2) - Learning Jubilee had been bitten by the vampire Alpha Red, the Soviet Union's answer to Captain America, the students gathered to discuss the issue. Un-elected student body president M informed Skin, Husk, Dead Girl and several other students she believed they were dealing with vampires. Although most were scared by the very idea, Vivisector, a werewolf-like mutant himself, was quick to note it was ridiculous. M, continued, asked the students what they knew could help them in the coming fight, Husk stated that a vampire couldn't enter a home unless he was invited, prompting the students to wonder about Jubilee who was already home. Suddenly lightning hit the school, causing a blackout during which Jubilee, now a vampire, appeared. Unbeknownst to the students the X-Men (Storm, Bishop and Psylocke) had taken student U-Go Girl to teleport them to Castle Dracula in the hopes of acquiring his help in defeating Alpha Red.

(X-Men '92 II#4 - BTS) - Skin was one of the many students turned into a vampire during Alpha Red's assault. Now falling under Alpha Red's command, Skin was forced to work alongside the People's Protectorate to defeat the X-Men.

(X-Men '92 II#4) - When Alpha Red and his vamped followers attacked the X-Men, Skin and the other vamped students were eager to kill U-Go Girl. She, however, teleported the vamped students to the Danger Room were they faced several constructs of legendary vampire hunter Blade. All of them were rescued when Dead Girl gave the Darkhold her soul to whisper the words "no more vampires" causing the vampire-curse to be lifted on Earth, turning all back into humans. Thus dealing with the situation at hand.

Comments: Created by Scott Lobdell and Chris Bachalo;

First released as an eight-part digital Infinite Comic the series was later reprinted as a four-issue printed series.

When, in 2015's Secret Wars, the Multiverse was destroyed following the incursions of planets it appeared as if Reality-92131 was drafted onto Battleworld as the Westchester domain. All Earth-92131 profiles on the Marvel Appendix reflected that information, however, this has since been debunked with the news that the original X-Men: The Animated Series will receive a brand new season to pick up where the original series ended. As such the reality seen in two volumes of X-Men '92 (2015-2017) now have their own reality-designation. The X-Men '92: House of XCII 2022 series was inspired by both the animated series and Hickman's House of X run but is its own separate reality. Nearly thirty years after X-Men: The Animated Series first debuted the new season will appear on Disney+ in fall 2023.
