Spider-Man X-Men #1-Meet Mr. Spider-Man
With the recent death of Wolverine, Marvel had a self-imposed hole to fill in their monthly slew of Wolverine titles. One of the more interesting (though different), Wolvie-related comics was the Wolverine and the X-Men title. In this series, Professor Wolverine led a group of young mutants on various adventures and school field trips to teach them the ropes of how to be X-Men. Now that Professor Logan is gone, Marvel had to find a substitute teacher, as it were.
Along comes Spider-Man, who is (or has been, depending on your continuity), an actual high school science teacher in his real identity as Peter Parker. Logan had left a message for Spidey, asking him to take his place at the Jean Grey School and try to find a student who Logan suspected of being a mole for the bad guys.
Spider-Man and the X-Men in Class
Spider-Man shows up in issue #1 of Spider-Man and the X-Men, and is assigned by Storm to teach a class in ethics. Hoo-boy. This series is rather light-hearted and is a fun read. But, what is a superhero comic book without some bad guys to liven things up? As we read in the first few issues, it seems that the formula for the villains in Spider-Man and the X-Men takes the form of one Spidey villain teamed up with one X-Men villain. Makes sense, if a bit contrived and formulaic.
This page is devoted to the goal of keeping track of all of the antagonists (to use a literary term) that our new team of Mr. Spider-Man and his X-Men protégés encounter. That means that if they fight someone, or someone's henchmen, lackeys, monsters, or other proxy, that antagonistic character will also be listed. On occasion, heroes fight each other, either out of stupidity, being possessed, being tricked, and so on. In those cases, the good guy or gal will also be listed as an antagonist.
Stegron Attacks Spider-Man and the X-Men
The system we use to keep track of Spider-Man and the X-Men villains and antagonists will be fairly simple. The character's name, the comic book issues in which the conflict occurred, and any notes needed for clarification. Next to the bad guys name will be a designator as to whether they are a Spider-Man villain, or an X-Men Villain.
Chameleon (Spidey Villain)- Spider-Man and the X-Men #2, #3 (teamed up with Mojo)

Notes Related to Spider-Man and the X-Men Villains:
At the end of Spider-Man and the X-Men #2, as our heroes leave Staten Island after turning over the defeated Stegron and Sauron to the Avengers, they are kidnapped by Chameleon, who is working for Mojo. Chameleon and Mojo only appear at the very end of issue #2.
