|Xavier's School For Gifted Youngsters|
- "Mutatis Mutandis (changing only those things which need to be changed)."
- —The School Motto
The Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters is a special institute founded and led by Professor Charles Xavier to train young mutants in controlling their powers and help foster a friendly human-mutant relationship. The school is also serves as the headquarters for the current X-Men.
After graduating Oxford University, being drafted in the Korean War, and battling the Shadow King in Cairo, Egypt, Xavier decided to devote his life to protecting humanity from evil mutants and safeguarding innocent mutants from human oppression, believing that both could peacefully coexist. Xavier worked with fellow mutation expert, Dr. Karl Lykos, as well as Dr. Moira MacTaggert, and they began discussing the idea of founding a school for mutants.
Built on a sprawling estate in the 1700’s by a Dutch ancestor of Charles Xavier’s, the mansion was originally built from stone on the edge of Breakstone Lake. Over the years, it has been destroyed on several occasions, but each time rebuilt and updated (to include advanced technology from the Shi‘ar Empire), using the format and style of the original, until recently, when the mansion was rebuilt with an entirely new design.
