The X-Jet is the aircraft used by the X-Men.
The X-Men utilized a jet named the X-Jet. When Rogue was kidnapped the X-Men used the jet to get to Libert Island where they managed to both save Rouge and stop Magnetos plans.
Jean Grey and Storm used the X-Jet to travel to Nightcrawler, then back to get Wolverine, Rogue, Pyro and Iceman. They fly to Alkali Lake's dam to save the captured Xavier Institute students and to foil William Stryker's plan. When they are asked to stay, Rogue and Iceman waited in the X-Jet while Pyro abandons them to join the Brotherhood of Mutants. Rogue and Iceman fly the X-Jet to save the X-Men and the captured mutants. Jean Grey stays behind to counter the flood and sends the X-Jet to safety from the incoming wave from the broken dam.
The X-Jet is flown to Alcatraz Island in stealth mode. When Jean Grey, now the Phoenix, unleashes her power, almost everything is disintegrated, along with the X-Jet. Only part of Worthington Labs, the X-Men, Magneto, some soldiers, Warren Worthington II and his son Angel survive.
Storm piloted the X-Jet, setting it down near a Chinese monastery, where they rendezvoused with Blink, Iceman, Warpath, Bishop, Sunspot and Colossus. It remained stationary until a horde of approaching Sentinels threatened Kitty Pryde's process of sending Wolverine's mind back to his younger self.
Magneto attempted to buy time by sending the X-Jet flying, in pieces, towards the Sentinels and their ships, destroying several in the process. When the remaining Sentinels began to kill off the rest of the mutants, Magneto forcibly bonded the remains to the monastery door, reinforcing it to prevent the Sentinels from breaking in.
In 1983 Hank began the creation of the X-Jet having a feeling that sooner or later the world will still need the X-Men. When Apocalyse and his Four Horsmen kidnapped Xavier, Alex in a desperate attempt to stop them fired an energy blast. Only for Apocalyse to teleport them away just in time causing Alex to hit X-Jet instead causing a massive explosion in the Mansion. While Alex is killed in the explosion everyone else is saved by the timely intervention of Quicksilver.
- The exterior design of the X-Jet used in X-Men is different from the X-Jet used in X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand.
- In one production sketch, the X-Jet used in X2 is clearly labeled MK II.
