Everyone gets: Draw an arrow from any circle or diamond to another circle, diamond, or square. Draw an arrow from your square to a new or existing circle or diamond a new d4 Relationship or 2d4 Resource. Despite your development up to this point, one day you discovered that you were different.
You learned you had a power, an ability, that set you apart from everything you knew, and forever changed the trajectory of your life. The number one thing that I realised when thinking about an X-Men Pathways Chart was that all X-Men characters should have the same Life-Changing Event: their mutant powers manifest for the first time, irrevocably setting them apart from the rest of humanity.
This meant that there would only be one option, a sort of bottleneck, at this stage of the chart. I also decided to move the Life-Changing Event earlier in the sequence. Who the characters are after their mutation is often much more interesting than who they were before. Note, because the Life-Changing Event is now earlier in the sequence, Rookie characters should continue to the Exposure stage before stopping.
Everyone gets: Draw an arrow from your square to a new or existing circle or diamond a new d4 Relationship or 2d4 Resource.

Acceptance is when those closest to you ackowledge the change, but also recognise that you are the same person you have always been and continue to give you love and respect.
The mutants who are accepted after their powers manifest are the luckiest of all. Awe is when people around you see what you can do now and start to treat you better than they ever did. This may be literal superstitious worship, but it may also be a desire to use your powers for their own ends.
Strangers suddenly want to be your friend so that you can help them at school, or make the crops grow, or get back against the bullies, or rob that bank. Everyone gets: Draw an arrow from any circle or diamond back to a Lead square. Optional: Switch out any Relationship or Resource currently on your sheet for a new Relationship or Resource at the same die rating and draw an arrow to a new or existing circle or diamond as appropriate. There is one fewer stage in my Pathways Chart than in the default one.
Solitude is needing time by yourself, to think or brood or meditate or simply to get some peace and quiet. Fortress optional. Creativity is directing your emotional energy into making things. It could be art painting, sculpture, writing, etc. Maybe you research history or psychology to find out why people treat you the way they do, or maybe you spend your time honing your new Abilities so that you can better control and use them.
Destruction is about lashing out at the world around you. It may be revenge, or it may just be fun. Maybe you restrict yourself to loud and cathartic destruction of things perhaps wrecked cars and empty buildings , or maybe you coldly calculate the downfall of people and organisations. Draw an arrow from any circle or diamond to another circle, diamond, or square. When the going gets tough, this is what inspires you to make the choices you do.
Motivation has the same purpose as the equivalent stage from the Smallville Core Rulebook, but the options have been changed to better reflect the X-Men themes. The Helpless is based on Others, and is about helping those in need.
