In X-Men '97 (Season 1, Episode 4: "Motendo / Lifedeath - Part 1"), Jubilee and Roberto (Sunspot) find themselves transported into a world reminiscent of a 90s beat-em-up video game. In the background, a pixelated "Wanted" poster depicts a number of characters, presumably all mutants.

While I can recognize Cyclops, Gambit, Scarlet Witch, and Wolverine, I'm not sure about the identities of the others.

Can anyone identify these unknown mutants from the "Wanted" poster?

    Fairly certain #11 is the Scarlet Witch

  • Possibly but more logically it would be Jean.

    Jean died in X-Men #137. The headgear the character is wearing belongs to the Scarlet Witch. Additionally, #13 is likely Professor X as Forge wasn't introduced until X-Men #184.

  • If you check the poster the wording of #13 certainly appears to be Forge.

    Several of those seem to be changed up in the X-Men '97 poster. #11: This character's headgear features a red color scheme and shape more reminiscent of Scarlet Witch than Jean Grey. #13: This figure appears bald and lacks the long black hair associated with Forge. This suggests this might be Professor X rather than Forge. #9: This character's design leans closer to Gambit than Magneto. The absence of a red helmet and chestplate, along with red eyes, a black cowl, and a brown coat collar, all point towards it being Gambit. Commented Apr 5 at 2:09
