I realized while writing up the hero datafiles that casual fans of Marvel may be a little confused on how the Young X-Men work in the marvel timeline. I’ve seen quite a few comments on videos and articles on X-Men Blue where people are shocked and confused by the Young X-Men still being in the present.

All of it makes sense, trust me, and I’ll explain briefly.

The short answer is that they were originally linked to the present timeline X-Men, but that changed at some point.

Quick Update

Currently, work on my projects have been delayed due to a mixture of the holidays, graduate school, CPA preparation, and Fallout 4.

I apologize for this delay. Once my last final is over, I will get back to work. I already known how I plan to finish Yokai Blade and Phoenix Rising. Friendship, Effort, Victory’s updates are still in my head as well. Once I have time to really sit down and work, they should all move forward.

In the near future, I’m going to begin linking playtest documents to the related entries in my projects page. Should be a good way to get feedback.

I’d like to thank everyone for reading and hope you have a happy holidays and happy gaming.
