History

Origin

Hellfire Academy (Earth-616) 03

The Hellfire Academy was founded by Kade Kilgore, the Black King of the Hellfire Club.[1] Kilgore recruited villainous mutant outlaws to act as faculty, and began traveling the country (and possible the world) enrolling newly manifesting mutants to attend this school.[2]

This academy serves as a direct opponent to the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning's X-Men.[1]

Hellfire Academy's Student Body

One purpose of the Academy was to form great mutant villains, in order to boost the sales of his Sentinels.[3]

Kade Kilgore and his staff recruited both in the new mutants pool and in the Grey School ranks. While they tried and successfully brought in Glob Herman, Oya, Kid Omega, along with Toad, they also recruited the new-comers Infestation, Mudbug and Snot.

During the manipulation of Idie into making her to join, Broo was shot in the head by Kade Kilgore, rendering him as feral as a classic Brood. In order to "cure" him, Beast consulted the Dr. Xanto Starblood, prisoner in the S.W.O.R.D. station of the Peak VII, but the two aliens were soon recruited by The Philistine[4]

Owen Backes was made join by an agreement between the US military and the Hellfire Club.[5]

Notes

  • The school motto "Fais ce que tu voudras" translates from French to English as "Do whatever you want."
    • It was already seemingly the Club motto: "Fais ce que te voudras" ("Do what thou wilt").[9]
    • The school motto is also the title of a song written by Quebecois songwriters Eddy Marnay and René Grignon and performed by Céline Dion in 1986.
