The Brotherhood of Mutants

First began more than a decade ago by Magneto, the Brotherhood has served as an underground fighting force which believes that mutantkind are the next step in evolution. From petty acts of violence and vandalism to higher stakes missions such as destroying public landmarks, there is nothing that they won't do to further their cause, show off their strength, and 'prove' that they are superior. Over recent years they have fallen more into disarray, lacking authority figures within the ranks while their numbers continue to grow like an evolving street gang. To be part of the Brotherhood is to be part of a community, to be part of something bigger and better. While there are longer term members that will instantly recognize people such as Magneto and Mystique, a lot of the newer blood haven't had such exposure to their previous leaders and will not respond so favorably to them stepping in and giving orders. This is countered by many of the older members standing by their leaders with an almost religious passion. Infighting is thus quite a popular past-time.


Notable Members: Mystique, Magneto
