Cerebro was a machine designed by professor Charles Xavier to locate mutants with superhuman powers, and it was located in Xavier's mansion on the second sub-basement.

While the Operation: Zero Tolerance, Cerebro was confiscated by Bastion, who had entered in the Mansion, and captured Professor X. In an attempt gain access the files and operate Cerebro, Bastion tried obtain control of the super computer, however, the machine's systems self activated, releasing a virus that erased all the files. However, the combination of Cerebro with the nanotechnology dispersed by Bastion, allows the computer to acquire conscience.

Cerebro escaped from Bastion's headquarters, in his nanotechnological body, and following his original programming, he attempted to reach the goal that Xavier had designed him for: find, catalog, and register mutants. Before anything else, Cerebro must stop the virus running trough his circuits. In order to do that, Cerebro adopted Xavier's shape, called himself "the Founder", and created a nanotechnology X-Men based on Xavier's files. This "X-Men" kidnapped Shadowcat and asked her to erase the virus. Shadowcat, believing that it was her teacher who was asking, did it. After been freed from the virus, the Founder and his team tried to use a mutant locating satellite, to catalog all the mutants in the planet, but they were stopped by the true X-Men and the satellite was destroyed, then the Founder removed its Xavier-like shape.

After reabsorbing his "X-Men", Cerebro tried to locate Charles Xavier, but he found two brainwave patterns at the same time. In order to find them, he created two extensions of him, called "Mini-cerebros", which he sent to San Francisco and Siberia. In that time, the X-Men were also looking for their mentor, after being trapped by Bastion. The X-Men divided in two groups and followed the mini-cerebros to San Francisco and Russia. The first group ended in San Francisco's old Alcatraz, finding the real Xavier, but also the second version of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and the mini-cerebro. While the other team in Siberia, met Nina and Dr. Renee Majcomb. It seems that Nina has put her psi over Xavier's, and this caused the mini-cerebro to become confused with the true X-Men's mentor. Both extensions of Cerebro reached their goals. These ones were able to advice their partners, who traveled all together to Cerebro's headquarter in Florida, where they were beaten. Finally, Xavier's join forces with Nina, and together they managed to access into Cerebro's nanotechnology mind, dispersing his conscience all over the world. And the same time, the nanites that Cerebro was planning to use to control all the humans, were destroyed, and finally, Cerebro "died" in his creator's arms.
