The Xavier Institute for Higher Learning is a school for mutants located in Salem Center, New York. It is also the base of operations and training site of the X-Men.


After learning that Jean Grey was the current host of the Phoenix Force, Emma Frost and the Stepford Cuckoos arrived at the Xavier Institute to kidnap Jean. They telepathically attacked Professor X, but Jean picked up on it and unwittingly unleashed the power of the Phoenix Force in response. This caused a powerful explosion that destroyed most of the Xavier Institute, and lead to the disappearance of both Professor X and Jean.
