With an increasing student body, Cyclops & Emma Frost reorganized the Xavier Institute's educational and training program into a squad system.[1] The Corsairs Squad was advised by Cyclops.[2][3]

Academy X

The Corsairs won second place in the Field Day Events at the Xavier Institute.[4] At some point during the semester Specter switched spots with DJ on this squad.


  • Dryad - Callie Betto could influence plant growth. Depowered, and killed in bus bombing by Purifiers.[5]
  • Quill - Most of Maxwell Jordan's body was covered in spiky quills. Retained his powers, but was later killed by Stryker's Purifiers.[6]
  • Specter - Dallas Gibson could become a living shadow form. Depowered, and currently living with his grandfather.
  • Three-in-One - The Stepford Cuckoos have a telepathic hive mind. Co-Field Leaders. Retained their powers and remained with the X-Men.


After M-Day only 27 of 182 enrolled Xavier's students retained their powers. The Corsairs Squad was disbanded along with all the other X-Men Training Squads.[7]


  • This squad was named after Cyclops’ father, Christopher Summers who went by the name Corsair as a member of the intergalactic adventurers known as the Starjammers.
  • The squad’s colors are blue and white with grey accents.
