Trevor Hawkins[src]


Trevor Hawkins was one of the new mutants to manifest their powers after the war between Avengers and X-Men.[5] He quickly enrolled in the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning[6] due to teasing in his public school.[7]

He was among the students to go to Frankenstein's Monster's Murder Circus. He was beaten up by a mind-controlled Kitty Pryde and zombie clowns, and prompted Wolverine to break free of the spell making him believe that he was a clown.[8]

Later, he was among the group sent on a field trip to the Savage Land with Wolverine.[9]

When Pixie and Quentin Quire opposed each other with humiliating bets and dared each other to break into Doctor Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum, Trevor was assigned as the observer, his mutant ability permitting him to see if Pixie would cheat using magic. This power proved to be useful, as he detected D'Spayre's attack on Strange, and directed his teammates to attack him enough to allow the Sorcerer Supreme to defeat the demon. Contrary to Pixie and Quire, he was rewarded by Strange, who gave him a magical lens enhancing his powers.[10]

During his time with the Special Class, he was imprisoned by Mojo in the Mojoverse and gained new abilities for his eyes as a result of experiments conducted by Mojo.[11]

Generation X

When Kitty Pryde relocated the X-Men to New York and the school was renamed to Xavier Institute for Mutant Education and Outreach, Trevor decided to join. He became part of Jubilee's team, consisting of Nathaniel Carver, Quentin Quire, Benjamin Deeds, Bling!, and Nature Girl.[12] When a mysterious shadow in Central Park started stealing mutants during the night, Quentin convinced his classmates to investigate. They found themselves face-to-face with Emplate, who was possessing his sister Monet's body at the time.[13]

Lin and Trevor were tasked with babysitting Shogo, so in order to do it, Nature Girl brought the two to the Central Park Zoo, inside the Bears' Den. Eye-Boy expressed to her his concern about Nature Girl's idea, babysitting Shogo surrounded by bears. Shogo is seen having fun playing with the bears, when the bears sensed danger and roared viciously. Eye-boy picked up Shogo immediately and carried him away. Eye-boy asked Nature Girl what was that all about as they watched the bears go back inside their cave. Lin warned him that something was coming and that they needed to get back to the school fast. Indeed, somewhere underground, Emplate was currently hiding and feeding off one of the captured Morlocks. Being carried by vultures, Eye-boy, Shogo, and Nature Girl arrived at the school; they tried to warn the other students about what was coming to them. Nature Girl also informed Quentin Quire that whatever it was, was coming towards him.[14]

Monet, merged with her brother Emplate, arrived at the institute in order to try to kill the students and drain their life forces. While Jubilee, Husk, and Chamber battled the threat, inside the classroom, Trevor, Roxy, Benjamin, Nathaniel, and Quentin came up with a plan on how to defeat him. A few days later, the team was preparing a surprise party for Roxy, who was going home to visit her family for a while. At the party, Trevor approached Lin, concerned about the bargain she made with the rats. Lin responded not to worry about it and added that if ever that time came, she promised that she would keep him safe. Kitty Pryde arrived to congratulate Jubilee on keeping her class alive.[15]


When the Hive invaded Earth, they began forcing Symbiotes to bond with various superhumans, so in turn a Poison could assimilate both the symbiote and its host. When a Poison version of X-Force invaded the X-Mansion, Trevor was their first target.[16] He was consumed by a Poison not long afterwards, when the X-Men helped fend off an assault on Alchemax Tower.[17]


Despite his apparent death, Trevor has since been seen alive, living and training at the Xavier's School.[18][19] Trevor also attended the first meeting of the Mindfulness of Mutant Appearances, a support group set up by Domino and Nightcrawler for mutants who can't pass as normal humans.[20]

X-Men Disassembled

Trevor was one of many mutants to oppose Nate Grey as he attempted to impose his vision of the world upon it. When Nate Grey realized that his vision for the world would never come to pass as long as the X-Men were around, he wiped them out in an instant, including Trevor.[21]

Age of X-Man

Trevor and the others were transported to a reality create by Nate Grey and a Life Seed where he attempted to create a utopia for mutants to live in. Those Nate brought there had their memories of their previous lives erased so there was no resistance.[22]

Trevor became a member of Murshid En Sabah Nur's revolutionary group known as the X-Tracts. He helped keep Shadowcat safe from Clerk Iceman as he looked for the two individuals. Trevor used a vial of what he called "flashkick" derived from Unveil's powers to keep him and Kitty safe while she was phased through a statue. The two briefly kissed after Trevor explained about the object that they took. Suddenly, Eye-Boy was summoned by Nur along with Kitty to come back to their hideout, The Gilded Tomb.

Trevor showed up with the others in order for them to combine their minds together and to share their thoughts and feelings in a what Murshid called the Perfect X. They all placed their hands on Unveil for this to work. Apocalypse then announced that he would hold a rally in Central Park as a ruse so Eye-Boy and the other Light Riders could travel to Kazakhstan to free the Russian mutant Omega Red.[4]

Trevor was eventually allowed to return to the real world when Nate Grey decided to free the mutants he trapped in his reality after he realized the flaws in his approach to the reality.[23]


On Krakoa

Trevor later became a citizen of the mutant-only nation of Krakoa.[24] There he joins the mutant investigative team X-Factor.[25] It was on this team that Northstar discovered that Trevor had many powers that had been undocumented and he decided to keep them from the council.[26]

He attended the Hellfire Gala, but had to leave early to help David Alleyne apprehend Buck Thatcher. It was in doing this that he first revealed his ability to blast beams of light from his hands. He also used this ability against Tommy Shepherd in an attempt to prevent him from discovering his mother's corpse.[27]

Along with the rest of X-Factor, Trevor helped investigate the murder of the Scarlett Witch.[28]



Trevor is a new mutant activated after the Phoenix dispersion, and has displayed the following mutant powers, with his powers being expanded after being trapped in the Mojoverse:

  • Multiple Eyes: Trevor's body is covered by numerous eyes, a total of 57, which allow him to see in multiple directions.[6] Trevor has stated his eyes can't be used for an offensive purpose, but primarily to see "things that no one else can see"[7] including nearly limitless varieties of spectral visions[29]:

    • Psychological Intuition: Trevor could "read" people via micro expressions, body language and non-verbal cues, no matter how subtle.[29] During his time in the Savage Land, Trevor saw through certain personality traits in other people by noting subtle habits.[30] i.e. Shark Girl's fear of abandonment via hand tremors when yelling, Sprite's longing for peer recognition noting her corner eye twitching, and Glob Herman's fostering secrets gleaned from his quivering jelly body. He was also able to quickly discern the true motives of two new students who were secretly junior S.H.I.E.L.D agents under orders to report the school's activities/dangers to normal human society and shut it down.[36][37]
      • Aura Viewing/Tracking: An extension to detecting mental cues, Trevor eventually found he could sense powerful empathetic ties and also track people by following said connections to them (ties of friendship shared between himself and the special class at school for instance).[11][32][34]

    • Oneiric Scrying: When Trevor recedes into REM state, his visual clarity intensifies many times over as he sees into himself. Through this dream sight he can peer into just about everywhere within the world around him, as well as beyond the world with enough focus to see past the veil of false realities.[38]
    • Weakness Perception: Can pinpoint weak spots in machines and people, much like the Inhuman Karnak.[11]
    • Electric Wave Perception: Able to see electronic wavelengths.[39]
    • Microwave Perception: Able to see microwaves with his multiple eyes.[4]
    • Illusion Perception: Is able to see past illusions and disguises.[11]

    • He can see emotional connections. [11]

    • Solar Blasts: Through as of yet unknown means, Eye-boy can emit intense bursts of bright yellow energy along a manifesto of consecutive 3D projected images through the act of making symbols via hand gestures.[27]
      • Solar Ray Emission: Eye-boy can emit focused beams of extra stellar force that, in his words, can cause sunburns & radiation poisoning.[27]


Thanks to his powers, Trevor has acquired new abilities:

  • He is an expert marksman.[30]
  • He is also an expert in nonverbal communication and an exceptional personality perception expert.[33][27]
