Metro College is a university in New Jersey. Its alumni include Jean Grey, Johnny Storm, Ted Roberts, Misty Knight, Cal Rankin, and Wyatt Wingfoot. Of these, only Wingfoot is known to be a graduate.
Sam Thorpe was an athletics coach, who was training the Metro College football team. He was team-mate with Will Wingfoot, the greatest US Olympic decathlon star. Seeing potential in Will's son, he offered Wyatt Wingfoot a place in the college team, but he refused. During a gridiron football match against the E.S.U., Coach Thorpe witnessed Crystal and Lockjaw appear on the field out of nowhere, looking for Johnny Storm.
