The Original Team

Founding members of Excalibur
Shadowcat and Nightcrawler were recovering under the care of Moira MacTaggert on Muir Island due to their injuries sustained during the "Mutant Massacre". Both were devastated to hear of the supposed deaths of the X-Men during the "Fall of the Mutants". Brian Braddock, brother to the X-Man Psylocke, and his girlfriend Meggan were both similarly devestated.

Meanwhile, Rachel Summers had escaped from Mojoworld, and found herself back on Earth in London, England pursued by Mojo's Warwolves . She was also being hunted by the Technet, sent by Saturnyne. Kitty, Kurt, Brian, and Meggan helped Rachel defeat both of her attackers, and afterward decided to form a new superhero team to continue the legacy of the X-Men. Naming the team "Excalibur" after the magical sword of King Arthur Pendragon, they set their headquarters in Brian Braddock's lighthouse.

The team would go on to face a rematch with the Warwolves, as well as battle the Juggernaut, Arcade, the Crazy Gang, and their alternate reality counterparts, the Lightning Force.

Excalibur's ranks would grow to include Colossus, Micromax, Pete Wisdom, and Wolfsbane. The team disbanded following the marriage of Captain Britain and Meggan.

New Excalibur

Although the team disbanded years ago, a new Excalibur emerged from the "House of M" that enveloped the Earth due to the Scarlet Witch's reality altering powers. Captain Britain again lead the team which included Pete Wisdom, reformed X-Villain Juggernaut, alternate universe daughter of Scarlet Witch and Nightcrawler and former Exile Nocturne, former X-Man and disco star Dazzler, and former X-Man Sage who spied on the Hellfire Club for Charles Xavier as Tessa.
