X-Jet
Information

The X-Jet is a term for a series of specialized aircraft used by the X-Men.

HistoryEdit

X-Men: First ClassEdit

The original X-Jet was a modified Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird designed and built by Hank McCoy in the early 1960s, and was used by the newly formed X-Men to travel to Cuba and stop the Hellfire Club's plans during the Cuban Missile Crisis

The Blackbird was destroyed when Riptide, using his whirlwind power to dislodge Erik Lehnsherr's hold on the Hellfire Club's submarine, caused both the submarine and the aircraft to crash onto the nearby Cuban beach. 

X-MenEdit

Not long after Logan arrives at the X-Mansion, Charles Xavier gives him a tour of his school, including the X-Jet hanger.

Later on, the X-Men take the X-Jet to Liberty Island to stop Magneto's plan to use Rogue to turn all of the gathered world leaders on nearby Ellis Island into mutants.

X2: X-Men UnitedEdit

Jean and Storm take the X-Jet to Boston to capture Nightcrawler. After William Stryker's forces seize the X-Mansion, Jean and Storm meet up with Wolverine, Rogue, Iceman and Pyro in Boston with Bobby's family. As a result of Pyro's actions of attacking the police called to the house by Bobby's brother, the X-Jet was engaged in a dogfight with fighter jets from Hanscom Air Force Base. From within the jet, Storm and Jean utilized their respective powers to avert the course of the jets and their missiles, but one missile slipped through and caused the X-Jet to plummet. Luckily, Magneto used his powers to halt the jet's descent.

With Magneto and Mystique alongside them, the X-Men head to Alkali Lake in the X-Jet and formulate a plan to stop Stryker's agenda. After Stryker is stopped, the X-Men try to take off in the X-Jet, but they are unable to do so. As a result, Jean leaves the X-Jet, lifts it up telekinetically, and saves them at the cost of her own life.

X-Men: The Last StandEdit

Following Jean Grey's "resurrection" at Alkali Lake and the subsequent surfacing of the Dark Phoenix, Xavier orders Logan and Storm to return to Alkali Lake to investigate. Later on, while the X-Men were attempting to stop Magneto and the Brotherhood of Mutants on Alcatraz Island, the X-Jet was disintegrated by Phoenix.

X-Men: Days of Future PastEdit

The X-Jet is used by Xavier's group to reach the monastery in China where Shadowcat's group was.

During the final stand against the Sentinels there, Magneto flings the Jet into the oncoming Sentinels and it is detonated by a lightning strike from Storm.
