Anti-Mutant Propaganda Rising

With the proliferation of mutant births, anti-mutant sentiment grew. And without anyone to peacefully unite mutants or create a poster organization for mutant superheroes, mutants were only seen as a liability and danger.

Henry McCoy (Earth-TRN016) beaten to death

Historical Log 1A: March for Purity

Anti-mutant protests and rallies began springing up all over the United States, and often turned violent. During the March for Purity on Washington, D.C., mutants right advocate Dr. Henry McCoy was savagely beaten to death by anti-mutant protesters.[1]

Jean Grey (Earth-TRN016) in Albany

Historical Log 2B: The Phoenix destroys Albany


Anti-mutant sentiment finally gained legal traction after a young mutant girl's powers manifested in a fiery explosion. Reports say the explosion looked like a Phoenix. The explosion leveled Albany, New York and killed approximately 600,000[2] To this day, mutants around the world still recognize Albany as a pivotal event.[3]

Historical Log 3C: Mutant-Hunting Exonims begin "The Decimation"

The Decimation

After the Albany incident put a face on "the mutant threat" and paved the way for anti-mutant legislation, the U.S. government sanctioned the creation of the mutant hunting robots, the Exonims.[3]

Exonims went into mass production and began running operations (such as Clean-Sweep,[4][5][6] Pig Iron[7] and Red Hot[5][8]) to round up mutants and human relatives of mutants. Mutants were arrested or killed on site. In the months that followed, the mutant population dropped drastically. This sharp decline in the mutant population became known as "The Decimation".[8]

Fantastic Four (Earth-TRN016) arrested

Historical Log 4D: Fantastic Four arrested

With mutants being executed by the thousands in places like Alcatraz[3] and by Exonims in the streets, human families of mutants were next to be targeted. X-Gene carriers were offered one of two options: sterilization or imprisonment. Researchers were even commissioned to develop a "cure" for mutancy.[3]

Around the world mutants did not fair any better. The United Kingdom attempted to exile their mutant population to a small island off of the north coast of Ireland. However, the ships never made it to their destination: One was bombed by Irish separatists, most of them turned back, and the last was liberated by the Mutant Liberation Front and most of the mutants escaped into Canada and the United States.

Those aiding or protecting mutants were arrested too. The popular superhero team, The Fantastic Four, was publicly arrested for harboring a mutant fugitive. Sue Storm herself reported the incident after the mutant injured her son Franklin.[9]

Avengers (Earth-TRN016) are created

Historical Log 5E: Avengers tasked with Mutant hunting

Fortress X

In the mist of anti-mutant hysteria, the mutant "terrorist" known as Magneto organized several efforts to liberate mutants including campaigns in San Francisco, Genosha, Baton Rouge and New York City. Magneto was also key in founding mutants rights organizations like the Brotherhood and Acolytes.[5]

In a show of force and to rally his fellow mutants, Magneto used his control of magnetism to literally steal multiple structures from Manhattan (including the Chrysler Building, Empire State Building and Grand Central Station) and create his mutant safe haven, Fortress X.[3] Now Magneto maintained his stronghold and invited mutants to join him in the last stand of mutantkind.

Following these numerous terrorist acts by Magneto and his followers, the U.S. government assembled an elite team of hero humans to hunt down these last mutants. The new team was dubbed The Avengers.[10]
