The X-Patrol (X-Men + Doom Patrol)
Dr. Niles Xavier and Prof. Jean-Luc Magnus both have dreams about the future of their people, the metamutants (mutants + metahumans), but their differing opinions on how to achieve their dreams is what drove these friends apart; while Niles believes that metamutants and normal humans can live together in peace, Jean-Luc believes that metamutants deserve to rule over humanity.
When Jean-Luc and his genetically-engineered army of super-animals tried to invade Washington, DC, Doc X. assembled a trio of metahumans to combat them. And thus was born the X-Patrol.

Niles joined the French Resistance as one of the only members with superpowers, along with magnetism manipulator Jean-Luc Magnus, and metal-fleshed Claudius “Cliff ” Rasputin. After the war, Niles and Jean-Luc graduated from their respective colleges and became colleagues, but their contrasting thoughts on human-metamutant relations made them enemies. When Niles learned that Jean-Luc, now going by the name “Magnetron” (Magneto + The Brain), was raising an army of mutant animals to take over the United States, Magnetron's agent, Kalcifer (Lucifer + Kalki), injected the base of Niles' spine with nano-explosives and Magnetron threatened to blast Xavier's torso off if he ever interfered. Dr. Xavier managed to remove the bombs, but it cost him the ability to walk. So, in order to stop the invasion, Xavier used his telepathic powers, amplified by his prototype supercomputer CEREBRO (CEREbral Broadcasting and Receiving Operator), to summon his old friend “Cliff” Rasputin, and two new metamutants, Scott Dayton and Jean Farr. With the team's victory over Magnetron's army, the team decided to stay together as a team of superhuman crime-fighters, the X-Patrol.
