History

Weapon X Program

The Weapon X Facility was the complex where the C.I.A.'s Weapon X Program operated.[3] It was built by Canadian's Department K,[2] in Alberta, Canada, near the town of Roanoke.[4] When Weapon Plus Program's Director John Sublime tried to shut down Weapon X Program, Professor Thorton made Weapon X an independent organization,[5] eventually leaving the Weapon X Facility and using the U.S. Department of Agriculture as a cover for their illegal activities.[6]

Mutant Revolution

After Cyclops was freed,[8] he, Magneto and Magik set up their base in the now abandoned facility. From here they launched their mutant revolution by liberating unjustly imprisoned mutants and offering them aid with their powers and a place in Cyclops' new X-Men Team. Emma Frost soon joined after being freed by Cyclops and Magneto.[9]

Together Cyclops, Emma, Magneto, and Magik founded the New Charles Xavier School for Mutants.[9][10] They redesigned the facility to equip it with dormitories, cafeteria, and Danger Room. They've gathered young mutants such as Tempus, Triage, Benjamin Deeds, Goldballs, Stepford Cuckoos (Celeste, Irma and Phoebe), Angel, and Hijack and began training them to use their powers.[10] After the conflict with the Future X-Men and Future Brotherhood at the Cape Citadel base, Katherine Pryde decided to quit the Jean Grey School with the young X-Men and take up Scott's offer of joining his school thanks in part to Illyana.[11]
