They were a trio of 1940s scientific investigators who popularized the letter "X" as a shorthand for humanity's next phase. In another world, they would have been the "X-Men." But they mysteriously vanished. The Xs were not mutants and Bobby is not certain that they even knew about the Mutant Gene.
