After showing off the first official look at Apocalypse, Storm, and Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse earlier today, Entertainment Weekly is doubling down and giving us our first shots of more of the new mutants debuting in the film, as well as some brief descriptions.

Storm (played by Alexandra Shipp), is described as being out of countrol when Apocalypse finds her on the streets of Cairo.

Lana Condor's Jubilee is one of of the cool kids at Charles Xavier's school, with EW calling her "fashionable."

The future team leader, Cyclops (played by Tye Sheridan), is making a bit of a departure from his comic book origins with EW's description of him as a "bad boy." EW also says a budding romance with Jean Grey is one of "three love stories" in the movie. It was previously revealed that Magneto will be retired and with someone at the beginning of X-Men: Apocalypse, making that relationship the possible second.

Kodi Smit-McPhee is described as the "comic relief" for the movie, sounding somewhat similiar to Alan Cumming's portrayal of the character in X2: X-Men United.

And Game of Thrones alum joins a new kind of family as the movie's Jean Grey. EW describes the red-haired young woman as one of Xavier's "most prized students," but someone that is scared of her telepathic abilities.

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for a May 27, 2016 release.
