    Post Does the X-Men have any evil counterparts?

    Outside of the media and brands.
    The Justice League have "Squadrum Supreme", ' The Seven' from the Boys and 'Crime Syndicate'.
    While the 'Avengers' have Dark Avengers led by Norman Osborn.

    But I wanna to know do X-Men have any evil counterparts?

    I mean normally I'd say the Brotherhood? But since Krakoa there are no enemies among mutants since all past transgressions have been forgiven.

    There was a Dark X-Men by Claremont before the architects created their own and they were an AU. Then there is the Lightning Squad version of Excalibur.

    Wouldn't that be The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants? Or are you thinking of something where each member is an obvious counterpart to a specific X-Man, like if you put Madelyne Pryor, Joseph, Dark Beast and Stryfe on a team?

    There have been some teams that took a similar role in X-Men history. In the early days, they were the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants led by Magneto. There have been other iterations of the Brotherhood like the one lead by Mystique. Apocalypse with his Horsemen, The Alliance of Evil in some issues of the first X-Factor. Magneto and his Acolytes in Genosha can be considered one too. The Sisterhood, a group of female villains.

    I think the most evil group was the Marauders, the mutant mercenaries that massacred the Morlocks. Their purpose was just killing.

    In the case of the New Mutants, their counterpart were the Hellions. The Hellions weren't truly evil of course, they were just kids. That was more like a teenage rivalry.

    They were short lived, but the Hex Men.

    Example: Superman has the evil counterparts like "Injustice Superman", "Homelander" and "Omniman from Invincible".

    Xavier Jr and his brotherhood were a kind of anti-X-men and also took the O5 X-men places for a while in the past.

    …led by “Herr Moira McTaggert”.

    Shadow king and Emma Frost were evil counterparts to Xavier, before he basically became his own worse enemy.

    Charles Xavier has an evil counterpart, Cassandra Nova, who was his twin genocidal sister (actually some kind of parasite).
    Beast and Dark Beast. Also Beast-Sublime from Here Comes Tomorrow.
    Cable and Stryfe.
    In Limbo (during Magik's childhood), there was an evil counterpart to Kurt Wagner.

    There was a kind of evil O5 team in X-Men 2099, gathered together by an insane ex-mentor who came after Xavier (but before Xian, their current leader/mentor). They had a dude with a laser-eye, a telekinetic redhead, an ice-lady, a three-armed super-strong 'beast' and a winged dude. Things did not end well for any of them, from what I recall... The crazy old mentor hunted the world for mutants that could replicate the abilities / appearance of the original X-Men, and was trying to recreate the past (casting himself in the role of Xavier), because the loss of his own generation/team of X-Men had broken his spirit.

    I cant remember if that is the same universe as the LS. It was an Excalibur graphic novel and I even have it. It was kind of desturbing. Mixed with that art too...

    Although tenuous ( because they are not mutants),I see Children of the Vault as X-Men counterparts.They are basically evil X-Men and this mirroring is even more striking in the current Krakoa reality.
