    Having an excuse for lazy origins ended up kind of moot given how many X-Men a) have batshit insane backstories anyway b) undergo body transformation c) are revealed to actually not be mutants, but some random other species that will be forgotten about in a year or d) all of the above

    Angel: ordinary rich playboy loses funds and/or pilot's license. Depressed, accepts an offer from Apocalypse and becomes Archangel
    Beast: drinks the science juice
    Cable: doesn't he barely use his powers anyway? He's just Booster Gold with guns
    Cannonball: workplace accident in the mine
    Colossus: involuntary Super-soldier experimentation, because Russia = evil
    Cyclops: as he plummets from the plane flown by his father, an errant blast from the Shiar technology used to abduct his parents strikes his eyes, just as he is concussed and blacks out from the fall. Comic book logic means his eyes shoot force beams now
    Or
    An ordinary orphan used as a random test subject in the mysterious orphanage manager's genetic manipulations
    Dani: just her Valkyrie stuff. She rescues Brightwind on Earth instead of Asgard, and the fear illusions come with the package
    Dazzler: maybe an abandoned nuclear test site wasn't the best venue for a concert, as seen when loose wires from both the sound and lighting rigs lying in a puddle of goo electrocute the talent
    Emma: bought her powers
    Gambit: Candra
    Magik: same as her real story. She accessed the stepping disks through secret magic instead of her power. If she didn't hang out with the X-Men a lot of writers would forget she was even a mutant anyway (See: Larocca thinking she teleports with magic in recent Uncanny)
    Magneto: Nazi science test subject
    Psylocke: the same source as her non-mutant superhero brother: Otherworld magic junk. Or maybe The Hand did it. Or Mojo. Betsy's body gets fucked with a lot.
    Rogue: regular human terrorist trained to take out Ms. Marvel. When she confronts her, Carol is taking down some villain working on a power-stealing machine. The fight causes an accidental discharge and Rogue is zapped while touching Carol, giving her both Carol's powers and permanent absorption powers

    Skeeter: Hey time traveling O5 members of the X-Men We don't take kindly to people who create a time paradox around here!

    Bartender: Now calm down Skeeter they aint hurtin nobody.

    Skeeter: No! I wanna know som'in from the "O5" How come you cant go back to your own timeline in the first place and how come when Reed Richards "fixed" the universe you wasnt put back and how come the changes that happn to you dont happn to your present day selves?

    Bartender: Skeeter I dont want trouble

    Ooh, I like that. She uses her Valkyrie 'death-vision' (TM) offensively, showing someone a vision of their (possible, future) demise and leaving them paralyzed with dread (or flailing about randomly at whatever they are seeing, trying to 'kill' or run away from whatever they see killing them!).

    Offensive precognition (or telepathy or clairvoyance or psychometry). Very cool. Kind of like what Jean did to Mastermind, all those years ago, opening up his mind to the entire universe. 'Some people can handle it...'

    Or the movie, The Crow, only with offensive use of projective psychometry/postcognition, instead of precognition. "Thirty hours of pain. All at once. All for you..."
