The X-Men are a group of mutants.
Charles Xavier individually approached Cyclops, Iceman, Beast, Angel and Jean Grey. Their first battle against Magneto proved that the master of magnetism could be defeated by children, as despite his seeming victory over the group initially, he failed to stop himself from being struck with an optic blast by Cyclops with the aid of Jean Grey. Charles approached Nightcrawler while he was being treated poorly for his appearance in his homeland, and Storm while she was a child and continued to pickpocket. Along the lines, he also recruited Shadowcat and Colossus and invited Wolverine to the institute as well. During the latter's arrival, he spotted Jean as he pulled up and was met with jealously and annoyance by Cyclops when he continued to make hints that he liked her.
Jean became aware of the conflict between the two, and made him promise not to fight against Cyclops over her. Wolverine kept his word when he was attacked by Cyclops, and was given support by Jean as a result. He chose to leave the team after this, as an explosion at the mansion went off.
