Benjamin is a Mutant from Texas who's power was unlocked some time after the Phoenix re-sparked mutantkind.
Benjamin Deeds was an average college student at the University of Dallas in Texas until his mutant powers manifested during a pro-mutant rally on campus. Media and other students seemed to welcome him with open arms. The festivities were cut short by the arrival of Cyclops and Magneto to retrieve Benjamin. They were shortly followed by the original five X-Men. A battle ensued, and Benjamin was left at the campus. Benjamin was expelled from school for being a mutant and every time he tried to call his parents by phone they didn't answer. While leaving the school, Scott approached him again and convinced him to come with him and promised him that he could leave if he didn't like it.
