Paulie Provenzano was strongly anti-gay, which temporarily caused some friction between himself and openly LGBT teammate Northstar.

Paulie was only briefly a member of the X-Men. He was recruited by Jean Grey to be part of a temporary incarnation of the team sometimes known as the "Eve of Destruction X-Men." After their mission to stop Magneto's Genosha-based war against the rest of the world, Paulie was offered permanent membership in the X-Men. But he declined the offer and returned home to Brooklyn.
