In Uncanny X-Men Annual # 12, since the X-Men are assumed dead, Mojo (see his post) was left without his # 1 rating generator. He tried to create his own version of the X-Men. After numerous failures, he created the X-Babies (younger versions of the X-Men). They rebeled againist Mojo and he was going to kill them... only to discover his ratings were higher than ever. There have numerous versions of the X-Babies, usually they are younger versions of the current X-Men roster. X-Babies had several villain teams such as the Brotherhood of Bullies (based on the Brotherhood of Mutants). In Excalibur: Mojo Mayhem, a group of X-Babies were on the loose and Mojo tried to take advantage of their crushes on each other and "child-like" flaws to get them to sign contracts, but Kitty Pryde saved them. In the new X-Babies miniseries, the X-Babies discover that Mojo created the "Adorable X-Babies" (newer, cuter version of the team, but with shallower personalites), which became his # 1 rating generator.
