Erik Lehnsherr made his presence known when he made an attack on New York City in an attempt to accelerate mutation in homo sapiens. What was known as the Lady Liberty Incident pushed the Mutant Registration Act into play. The political world's hot button issue was how to deal with Mutants or Homo Superior.
Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters came under attack from the government. The man leading the attack was William Stryker. He was the former head of Weapon X which was directly related to Wolverine's past. The attack left considerable damage to the school, and left many traumatic scars on the students. The situation was resolved, and through a soft warning from Xavier the President made a cry for peace, and unity. It was believed to be the first step toward peace.
Life returned to normal for the students of Xavier's. The next mutant related issue struck as Worthington Labs revealed it's "Cure" for Mutantkind. A mournful Father's attempt to "fix" his son led to many taking the opportunity to once again be normal. Magneto (Erik Lehnsherr) once again rose up this time with an army of mutants, and made his way to San Francisco to capture the mutant Leech who was the subject for the discovery of the Cure. Many mutants fell that day to the Cure, but after six months it was realized that the Cure could only repress the X Gene not cure it as presumed. This year also marked THE DEATH of Charles Xavier at the hands of his greatest student. The school stayed afloat after his death, but without Xavier to procure funds to keep the place as a school it was eventually CLOSED.
Cure is a weakened form of it's previous make, and has become a drug problem with mutants using it to repress their X-Genes. It is believed the government is helping circulate it to repress mutants, that is of course unproven.
Warren Worthington III has bought the location, and renovated it into a state of the art facility. He has expanded the old mansion to accommodate FOUR HUNDRED students, and suitable live in rooms for the staff. He also managed to find one of it's previous staff members to take over as Headmistress of the school.
