Every superhero team needs some form of equipment to assist them in their efforts. The Avengers have a host of equipment that enhances their ability to save the world. Iron Man has armor, Captain America has his shield and Thor has his hammer. Through the series of films the X-Men primarily use their various powers to perform whatever tasks or duties they need. What equipment do the X-Men have to assist them in their endeavors?
Professor Charles Xavier created Cerebro, one of the tools that the X-Men use to locate mutants around the world. Cerebro uses the telepathic ability of the user and magnifies it hundreds of times. The device allows the user to search minds across the globe to find mutants or to locate a specific individual. Charles Xavier used Cerebro in Days of Future Past to connect with Mystique across a great distance. The device allowed Xavier to locate Mystique and to communicate with her through tapping the minds of those around her. Charles even tapped her mind to communicate with her visibly. Cerebro is one of the most important pieces of equipment that the X-Men use.
The X-Men use a specialized version of an SR-71 to travel on various missions. The Blackbird can travel at supersonic speeds and has been equipped with computerized features that allow for easier flying. The aircraft also has been outfitted with harrier capability that allows for vertical take-off and landings. The engines have been modified to produce much less noise and to allow a near silent approach. The Blackbird is equipped with a Shi’ar stealth device that renders the aircraft invisible when needed.
Ruby Quartz Visor and glasses
Cyclops lost the ability to control his optic blasts due to a head injury sustained as a child. The only way for Cyclops to see is through the use of a special substance that is a compound of ruby and quartz. These glasses and visor are the only way that Cyclops can see. The visor allows him to concentrate the optic blasts and to widen the range. Without the visor and the glasses Cyclops would effectively be blind.
Charles Xavier used his family home to create a sanctuary for mutants and a place for training them to use their powers. The mansion has been a base of operations for the X-Men ever since. The mansion became the facilities for Xavier’s School Gifted Students. The mansion provides more than just a base but also a state of the art facility used to assess threats and research information.
