Mimic (Calvin Montgomery Rankin) is a former member of the x-men he got in by blackmailing them and is the only member to be kicked out by Professor X.
Being the sixth member of the X-Men there is much known about him for his time in the group his power is by touching other mutants. He copies their powers so he can use them, but if touched long enough he gains their powers permanently, similar to Rouge, but with no pain. As a result, he has the original five X-Men's powers permanently, which are Cyclops, Iceman, Beast, Angel, and Jean Grey. Mimic is created by writer Stan Lee and artist [[Jack Kirby. Mimic first appeared in x-men vol. 1#19 as a villain, then went to the Brotherhood of Mutants, and then to the X-Men. He is now apart of the Dark X-Men with Mystique and a few others.
