Professor X and his Generation

I'm not 100% positive if anyone else has asked this already but here I go. What other mutants came around Prof. X's generation? I know Magneto did but who else? I remember reading that Mystique and Destiny have been around for centuries but I guess they can count in some ways.

So, you want to know all the mutants who had mutated before the original 5 X-Men?  So characters like Wolverine, Sabretooth & Graymalkin who were born centuries ago... do they count?

Selene and Apocalypse too, although they aren't exactly his generation.

@The Dark Huntress: True, but that also includes all the other Externals (bar Cannonball ;)

@xerox-kitty: That's true. (I really need to start reading more Cannonball stuff).

@xmenboi11: How about Namor?  Do you count him too?  After all, he is the "First" mutant, so I guess he's from the same generation as Xavier. 
 
Then there's Cassandra Nova his twin so she must count...  And Mister Sinister was involved in Xavier's past so I guess he's old enough.

I guess the exact background of the Shadow King is a bit sketchy, but he has been around for a while. Gateway must be getting old as well, but not sure how long he has (Marvel officially) been alive.

Is Sinister a mutant or a mutate?

I always thought of him as a mutant, but I guess that's never been explicitly stated.

Namor isn't really the first mutant, he is the first mutant born since the babyboom of mutants. 
 
Doctor Nemesis for example was born around half century before Namor if I recall correctly. 
 
With Proff. X generation you mean any mutant before him or properly, his generation (the ones from the baby boom that now are old)?

@xerox-kitty: I always thought that he received his powers and abilities through genetic manipulation at the hands of Apocalypse. I don't think he carries an X-Gene and he wasn't listed in the 198 files along with other remaining mutants, IIRC.

@Lokheit: That's why I said "first" mutant, since it's always debatable.  However, he is of Xavier's generation. 
 
@The Dark Huntress: True.  I often forget that since he's been in the X-Men's lives for so long...  It's probably why I just like to think of him as a mutant anyway.

Yeah any mutants from before and during his own generation. I like older mutants a lot better than some of the younger and new ones. I'm not really all to some of the younger x-men except for loa, match, surge, hellion, and anole. Everyone else is just there.....HOPE. I love the mutants a lot though even though they're like one or two generations down the line.
