The Xavier Institue

The Xavier Institute for Gifted Children is the base of operations and training site of the X-Men and the location of a school for mutant teenagers. It is located in Bayville, New York.


The Xavier Institute was bought in April 13, 1977.[1] As Xavier's School for Gifted Children, the Mansion was the training site of the first two generations of teenage X-Men: the original X-Men and the New Mutants. Superman also enrolled in the Institute to act as a role model to the students.

In 2007, the Juggernaut attacked the Institute in order to gain his revenge on his half-brother Charles Xavier. Superman timely intervened and defeated Juggernaut with help from both the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants.[2]

The Institute was again attacked by the Friends of Humanity, whom they abducted Professor Xavier and setting the Institute's self-destruct sequence to explode. Fortunately, Superman, Flash, Aquaman, Green Lantern, and Hawkgirl arrived in delaying the explosion and evacuating the students to the Fortress of Solitude while fending off F.O.H. forces.[3] After the Institute was destroyed, the newly formed Justice League helped in reconstructing the Institute with financial support from LexCorp.[4]

After and during the reconstruction of the Institute, the grounds had once been vandalized by anti-mutant delinquents when the townspeople of Bayville was trying to adjust in coexisting with mutants, and later subjected to its front gates being swamped by news reporters and hordes of fans of Superman and the Justice League until the Xavier hired Bridget Blaire, a public relations agent and Allison Blaire's aunt, to managed the situation.
