Tier One: Most of the Tier One characters have made an impact in the timeline or have a strict set of rules of canon they should be following. They are not more important than other characters, but they were founders and shakers of the events so far. You may not have two Tier One characters.
Tier Two: Tier Two characters are important for the comic books but in the game they have not made an impact just yet. For the purposes of the game world, you will set their origins and when they showed up in the timeline.
Restricted: Some characters are just not invested in the mutant rights/survival cause, and as such wouldn't make good characters for the game right now, but we are willing to listen to your version of them to see if maybe we could let them happen. Also, powerful characters with a lot of thematic value are placed here: we don't want people abusing their powers and hogging the scene, but we would be willing to listen players who think they can use them responsibly.
Banned: These characters are either banned for their powers, for their inability to fit into the Brotherhood or the X-Men, or their value as villains and NPCs instead of being used as PCs. Some of these may leave that bracket in the future as the story progresses.
Dead: These characters are dead in canon, and they are going to stay dead*, God damn it!
