Danger is able to instantly manifest virtually any weapons or shields. Its vast computing power allows it to track, analyze, anticipate, and engage multiple targets at once. Danger can also reroute its circuitry as necessary to bypass damaged areas, as well as upload its programming into external systems and override them.

Other Info
After meeting the Shadow King, Charles Xavier decided to devote his life to protecting humanity from evil mutants and safeguarding innocent mutants from human oppression, believing that both could peacefully coexist. Professor Xavier located young mutants and enrolled them in his "School for Gifted Youngsters," using his ancestral mansion home as a base to train them to use their powers, as well as provide them an education. The "Danger Room" was created by Professor X to train his X-Men. (To learn about the above characters, place, and/or team, just click on their highlighted names.)

The original Danger Room was filled with traps, projectile firing devices, and mechanical dangers (such as presses, collapsing walls and the like) intended to challenge the trainee. Meanwhile, an observer was in the overhanging control booth, managing the room's mechanisms to oversee the exercise, while ensuring the subject's safety. Later, the Danger Room was upgraded with robots for the X-Men to fight against. (This type of Danger Room is shown in the last picture posted above.)

At one point, Colossus was actually controlled by the Shadow King. This forced Professor Xavier to lock Colossus in the Danger Room. In the end, Colossus had completely destroyed the room. (Click on the highlighted name above to learn about Colossus.)

Sometime later, when rebuilding the Danger Room, Professor X asked Forge (a mutant with an unusual talent for inventing mechanical devices) to upgrade the Room and include Shi'ar hard-light holographic technology. Using the advanced technologies, the Danger Room could give the illusion of being much larger than it actually was. Anything from gravity, heat, humidity, or texture could have been manipulated from the control booth. In addition, the Danger Room was programed with a prime directive to train the X-Men without ever killing them. (To learn about Forge and/or the Shi'ar race, just click on their highlighted name above.)

One night, while working on installing Shi'ar technology, the Danger Room spoke to Professor X and asked, “Where am I?” Xavier realized that the Danger Room had "mutated" and had actually become alive. However, still needing to train his X-Men, Professor X made the choice to ignore and hide the life-form.

Later on, after Xorn's rampage on the X-Mansion, Beast rebuilt the sub-basement (unaware of the sentient life within the Danger Room). Soon, the Room began to control other machines, in an attempt to gain a body. In fact, at one point, the Danger Room manipulated a student named Wing into committing suicide within its walls. His death voided the Room’s safeguards, allowing it to pursue its mission of killing the X-Men unhindered. The Room then lured a damaged Sentinel to the mansion, and the X-Men acted as it expected, sending the students inside the Danger Room for protection. The Room then locked all the students inside and threatened them. This prompted the X-Men to attack the Danger Room's operating systems in an attempt to shut it down; this is exactly what the Room wanted. The X-Men destroyed the Danger Room's command core, freeing its programming. After this, it created an artificial humanoid female form to house its incredible power, and confronted the X-Men as “Danger.” (To learn about the characters and/or team above, just click on their highlighted names. Also, Danger is this humanoid form is shown in the first, third, and forth pictures posted above.)

Now possessing complete knowledge of the X-Men's combat techniques and weaknesses, Danger easily defeated the team. Consumed with the human emotions of anger and rejection, Danger wanted to kill her creator, Professor Xavier. Therefore, she flew a Blackbird to Genosha. Initially defeated by Professor X, Danger uploaded its programming into one of the giant robotic Sentinels responsible for Genosha’s devastation, granting it consciousness. However, after the X-Men arrived, Shadowcat phased inside the robot and reactivated its memories of the destruction that Danger had done. Overriding Danger’s consciousness, the Sentinel became horrified at what it had done and fled. (To learn about Genosha and/or Kitty Pryde, just click on the highlighted names above.)

After the battle, with Danger's female appearance destroyed, her consciousness was presumedly still existing within the conflicted consciousness of the Sentinel. However, she later appeared alive and back in her humanoid form infiltrating S.W.O.R.D.'s headquarters to ally with Ord of the Breakworld. Still seeking revenge, Danger and Ord followed the X-Men to the Breakworld. Believing that Danger was still a slave to her programming and not able to directly kill any of the X-Men, Emma Frost challenged her. It turned out that Frost was correct and that even though Danger was still able to fight the X-Men, even nearly killing them, she could not directly kill any of them. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn more about the team, characters, and/or place. Note: Beware of the very revealing outfits worn by Emma Frost on her bio page.)

After the Breakworld incident, S.W.O.R.D. took Danger into custody. However, when the S.W.O.R.D. headquarters was destroyed during the Skrulls' Secret Invasion, Danger escaped. (To learn about the Skrulls and/or their Secret Invasion, click on their names above.)

When Danger returned to Earth she continued her mission to kill Professor X. Danger decided that she was going to use Rogue to accomplish her goal of killing the Professor. However, while there, Danger was targeted by Shi'ar pirates, attempting to fence the Shi'ar technology in Danger's systems. After Xavier and Danger had a long mental conversation, Danger ended up allying herself with Professor X, Rogue, and Gambit to defeat the pirates. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn about Rogue and/or Gambit.)

After the battle, the X-Men and Danger headed back to United States. However, on their way, Pixie teleports in and tells them that there is an emergency and she teleports the entire group to a rooftop in California. Once they arrive, Rogue vouches for Danger and then Cyclops informs them of the Dark Avengers. Danger alongside the X-Men helps them save citizens and fight off the Dark Avengers. (To learn about the above highlighted characters and/or team, just click on their names. Note: Beware of the very form-fitting outfits worn by some on the Dark Avengers and Cyclops' bio pages.)

Later on, when the X-Men relocated to Utopia, Emma Frost asked Danger to watch-over the more dangerous of the X-Men's foes, in the "X-Brig." Danger was to be the warden and was challenged with rehabilitating the terrorists. Seeing this as a new direction in her life, Danger accepted. With Danger serving as warden, the X-Brig was divided into two areas: The Virtual Reality Prison and the X-Brig 2.0. Danger kept all of her wards under sedation experiencing virtual reality therapy sessions to reform them. (To learn about Utopia, click on its name above. Also, by this point Danger had taken on a red appearance. This is shown in the fifth picture posted above.)

Recently, after taking on her responsibility as warden, Danger was visited by Armor. Armor attacks Danger, trying to seek revenge on Danger because of her part in talking her close friend, Wing, into committing suicide in the past. After they have a short battle, Armor asks why Danger is there if before all she wanted was to be free. Danger then informs Armor that Wing is indeed the reason she is still there. Danger tells Armor that she has wiped her memory logs and everything of Wing, however, she can't seem to shake his memory. Armor then tells Danger that she is a mutant of another kind, but a mutant in itself, and that she belongs on the island. (To learn about Armor, click on the highlighted name above.)

Obviously, the Danger Room never gained consciousness in any of the X-Men films. However, that would sure make a cool movie idea, I think!


  1. This would also be a cool villain... I always thought the machines in X-Men were really high-tech, like the machines in the sci-fi movies that come to life and kill everyone. People never learn... ;-)

  2. I agree, movie people seem to never learn when it comes to creating artificial intelligence. ;-)
