WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN CHARACTERS

Nicktoons has released the following character descriptions for Wolverine and the X-Men:

MUTANTS

WOLVERINE

A drifter known simply as Logan has lived many lives in his time -- a samuari, a covert operative, a living weapon -- but the only life that ever mattered to him is the one he shared with Professor Xavier's students, the X-Men. Traditonally a loner, he is haunted by memories of the life that was stolen from him and will ferociously defend the X-Men. His raped healing ability and indestructible metal claws make him a fearsome combatant, and now the Canadian brawler finds himself the unlikely head of the X-Men. Only with the help of the team can Wolverine hope to protect the world from its own bleak future and continue Xavier's mission of piece.

CYCLOPS

He was once the optimistic, straight-laced leader of Professor Xavier's X-Men, but when Scott Summers lost the two people he cared for most, he also lost the drive to lead the mutant heroes. Scott once kept a firm control on his life, much like his ruby quartz visor keeps his powerful optic blast in check. But now all bets are off. He may begrudgingly work with Wolverine and the X-Men to prevent a future that looks darker every second, but inside he is alone.

EMMA FROST

Emma Frost is a mysterious and strikingly beautiful telepath, who showed up on the X-Men's doorstep just when they needed her most. She boasts that she comes from a wealthy family in Boston and doesn't deny that she had previously tried -- and failed -- to start her own school for gifted mutants, the Massachusetts Academy. The ambitious Emma is Wolverine and the X-Men's only hope of finding their missing colleagues and a valued ally in the effort to save the future.

ICEMAN

Bobby Drake thinks he's the coolest guy around. His cockiness may sometimes cause trouble, but this reckless young mutant's ability to project intense cold and convert moisture into ice has nonetheless made him a valuable asset to Wolverine and the X-Men.

BEAST

Though blessed with the agility and strength of a great ape, the blue-furred Henry McCoy's greatest asset is his keen scientific mind. The brilliant and super-strong Beast is proud to be on staff at Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, and he often acts as the voice of reason for Wolverine and the X-Men.

NIGHTCRAWLER

Because of his demon-like appearance, the only place that circus performer Kurt Wagner ever felt truly welcome was at Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. Able to teleport himself and a limited amount of extra mass over short distances, this mischievous, German-bon mutant consistenly proves himself as major asset to Wolverine and the X-Men.

STORM

Orphaned at an early age, Ororo Munroe turned to a life of crime to survive on the mean streets of Cairo, Egypt. When her mutant power to control weater patterns over limited areas emerged, she wa worshipped as a goddess by the tribes of the Serengeti Plains. Eventually, as Storm, she found her true purpose at Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, where she battles alongside Wolverine and the X-Men against their omninous future.

FORGE

Forge is a mutant with a superhuman intuitive talent for inventing and repairing mechanical devices. He is the main technician at the X-Men mansion and has a bionic right hand and lef leg, which often contain concealed weapons and devices that he can use in combat.

ANGEL

Warrren Kennedy Worthington III, also known as Angel, is gifted with a pair of large feathered wings extending from his back, enabling him to fly. As the heir and CEO of the multi-billion dollar Worthington Industries, he disguises his mutant abilities to maintain cash-flow from his father's business to support mutant needs.

PROFESSOR XAVIER

Charles Francis Xavier, known as the leader and found of the X-Men, is paraplegic with one of the world's most powerful mutant minds. He is a high-level telepath who can read, control and influence human minds. Also known as Professor X, his goals are to promote the peaceful affirmation of mutant rights, to mediate the co-existence of mutants and humans and to protect society from antagonistic mutants, including his old friend, the militant Magneto. To achieve those goals, he founded Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters (later named the Xavier Institute) to reach mutants to explore and control their powers.

JEAN GREY

Jean Grey is a mutant born with telepathic and telekinetic powers. Professor X is like a father and mentor to her, Cyclops is her boyfriend, Wolverine is a dear friend and, at several point, a potential love interest. Jean is considered to be one of the Earth's most powerful telepathic minds. She can communicate with others telepathically, read the thoughts of others, influence and control the minds of others, project her mind into the astral plan and generate telepathic forces blasts that can stun enemies. She can also lift and move objects telekinetically and create telekinetic shields.

ROGUE

Raised by numerous foster families, the young woman known only as Rogu has learned to look after herself. Her mutant ability to drain the life energy, memories and powers of anyone she touches forced her to keep those she cared about at arm's length, literally. Has Rogue really found a home at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters or are Wolverine and the X-Men just another in a long line of temporary families?

SHADOWCAT

Kitty Pryde might be able to become immaterial and "phase" through solid objects, but her devotion to Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters is anything but insubstantial. Enrolled in the school since she was only 13, the spunky young mutant called Shadowcat serves as a cheerleader for Xavier's mission and a valued teammate to Wolverine and the X-Men.

MAGNETO

While Charles Xavier sought to prevent violent conflict between mutants and non-powered humans, his one-time friend Eric Magnus Lehnsheer welcomes it. After surviving extreme persecution as a child, the embittered mutant called Magneto came to believe that his species were the rightful inheritors of the Earth. His mastery over the forces of magnetism makes him a rousing leader to the mutant nation of Genosha and a formidable foe for Wolverine and the X-Men.
