When she returned from the dead, Jean Grey decided to propose the United Nations to recognize mutants as a nation and bring them into the UN to work together with humans towards a more peaceful future. When she confided this idea with Nightcrawler, he suggested forming a team to offer her support and protection. After Jean gave a speech at the UN, Cassandra Nova incriminated her with the murder of the United Kingdom's ambassor. Nightcrawler teleported Jean to Wakanda for safety together with Wolverine and Honey Badger, who spectacted the speech.
Jean's attention was soon drawn to help the Indian mutant Trinary. After Jean and her allies rescued her, they were attacked on their return to Wakanda by Storm, who was under the influence of both Cassandra Nova and one of her Sentinites. When Storm tried to kill herself due to the Sentinite's instructions, Wakandan mutant Gentle stepped in and saved her. After extracting the Sentinite from Storm and learning that an enemy was after her, Jean opted to move her base of operations underwater, where Namor had previously offered her asylum. Additionally, Trinary and the Wakanans designed the team special suits that could act as a firewall in case of a Sentinite infection. Jean declared the formation of the team as the beginning of her dream of a mutant nation.
