The book was set in Emma Frost's Massachusetts Academy, which used to be the supervillainous equivalent of the Xavier School, before an incident with a time traveller, some giant killer robots, an accidental body-switch and an evil alien god turned Emma Frost into TheAtoner. Her formerly villainous past led to some friction with her students, and with her co-head teacher, reserve X-Man Banshee.

* LongBusTrip: Maggot is at the school for all of one issue before leaving to pursue an exotic big game hunter who had tried to take his two slugs. He promises that Generation X will see him again. They don't, mainly due to the series eventually getting cancelled and Maggot then showing up [[DroppedABridgeOnHim in a concentration camp where he's killed]].

Added DiffLines:
* PutOnABus: Gaia, who joined during Larry Hama's run, leaves the school shortly into Jay Faerber's to experience the world and hasn't been seen in a comic of any sort since. * ShooOutTheClowns: During the book's DarkerAndEdgier final year, Leech, Artie and Penance make precisely one appearance before being sent off panel to the home of Monet's father in Morocco.

* TheGenericGuy: Synch, who never had very much focus or indeed much of a personality and tended to fade into the background. [[HeroicSacrifice Probably why he was killed near the end of the series]].

* AxCrazy: Adrienne Frost once she drops any pretenses and becomes obsessed with murdering Generation X simply to stick it to Emma.

Added DiffLines:
** Mostly averted in Angelo's case. There are times where it gets to him but for the most part he realizes that there's no use moaning about it. Chamber, on the other hand, goves into full blown {{Wangst}} territory quite a bit.

Added DiffLines:
* ManipulativeBitch: Cordelia Frost, Emma's younger sister, which comes back to haunt her.

Added DiffLines:
** As the series progresses, however, and he gains more control Skin's power winds up generally [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower having the most utility]].

* MoodWhiplash: The Warren Ellis/Brian Wood co-written run is very much DarkerAndEdgier and comes directly after Jay Faerber's LighterAndSofter run.

* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Oh Skin... ** Synch as well. He was effectively powerless if no superpowered individual was around. At one point, he was unable to prevent a couple human bullies from beating him up. His aura's mutant-tracking ability went on to be much more useful and memorable than his ability to do whatever the guy next to him is doing. His mimic ablities got an upgrade when it was revealed that he could use grafted power to the best of its ability. Basically he used your power better then you in ways you never thought possible. Didn't help him [[DroppedABridgeOnHim regarding explosives however.]]

As an example this is a series where Comicbook/HowardTheDuck spends a handful of issues as a supporting character.

* EvilCounterpart: Subverted. When a line of action figures of Generation X was made, the producers apperently thought Gene Nation, who had only shown up in 2 issues, would be this for the team and made figures of the two known members Marrow and Hemingway
