To achieve his goals he builds a school to house young mutants in need of a safe place to live and training in their powers. The protect the school and foster good relations between mutants and humans he creates his X-Men team who fight against the threats normal humans can not combat on their own.

Each of these characters has their own unique super powers and all have had their own storyline or episode within the series.

Xavier's main nemesis is Magneto, a mutant with power over magnetism and metal, who feels that mutants should become the rulers of earth. Their discordant opinions lead to several altercations between Magneto, his henchman, and the X-Men and he is a regular foe throughout the series run. Along with a large gallery of villains and trouble from the government, the X-men must deal with alternate universes and futures, alien races, and the possession of one of their own by a powerful dark force from space while trying to perpetuate Xavier's ideals.
