The New Mutants are a superhero team in the Marvel Universe made up of young mutants.

Origin[]

When several young mutants were targeted by the villain Donald Pierce, mutant rights activist Professor X brought them together to form a new team of students to fight against evil.

History[]

Professor Charles Xavier, headmaster of Xavier's School for the Gifted and leader and mentor of the superhero team the X-Men fell into a deep depression after his team was seemingly killed in battle.  Though Xavier wanted to put no more young people in danger, his friend and confidante Moira MacTaggert tried to convince him to reopen his school using the example of a young mutant named Xi'an Coy Manh. Xavier agreed to do so but promised himself that unlike the X-Men, he would not prepare any students to fight.

The next student to join was Rahne Sinclair, a Scottish mutant capable of transforming into a wolf who was an outcast in her own hometown and put into Moira's care.
