The second ''New Mutants'' series, launched in 2003 and written by Nunzio [=DeFilippis=] and Christina Weir, featured another group of teenaged mutants - air-controlling Wind Dancer, skill-copying Prodigy, super-fast energetic Surge, healer Elixir, emotion-controlling Wallflower, and flying Icarus - but unlike the original New Mutants, they were only part of a [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters huge cast of students]] at the Xavier Institute. At first they were notable for their drive to become superheroes, but soon rival groups played a large role in the series. The main cast of original New Mutants had become teachers at Xavier's Institute and had problems coming to terms with the fact they were now the "old guard” in the eyes of the new generation. In 2004 the comic was relaunched as ''New X-Men: Academy X'', after which the central group was formally dubbed "The New Mutants". In 2005, the series was taken over by ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' writers Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost, who changed to a new DarkerAndEdgier status quo in the wake of the ''ComicBook/HouseOfM'' event. In 2008, ''New X-Men'' was canceled and replaced with a new series, Young X-Men, written by Marc Guggenheim. The title was part of Marvel's attempt to launch a second "Young ____" title in line with "Young Avengers.'

** Subverted with Domino. Originally a generic gun-carrying ActionGirl, she had the uber-generic "luck" power that no one ever mentioned until 1996's ComicBook/AmalgamUniverse comic X-Patrol, which used Domino's luck powers alongside [[Comicbook/DoomPatrol Elasti-Girl]] and TheWasp to reinvent her as an uber-lucky super-heroine. Years passed again and it took Matt Fraction coming up with the idea of her being an UBER-lucky Action Girl, capable of always showing up by chance when evil is going down, let alone always able to make her shots no matter how hard they are, to make her powers useful.

Various plotlines include the team opposing Dani's fearsome foe The Demon Bear, a trip to Nova Roma -- an offshoot of the last of the Roman Republicans in Brazil (where they picked up new member Magma and new enemy Selene, the life-stealing immortal sorceress), Colossus' younger sister-turned-demon-sorceress [[EnsembleDarkhorse Magik]], a team-up with Doug Ramsey aka Cypher (a language-translating mutant), a rivalry with The Hellions (a RivalSchool formed by X-adversary The White Queen), and a meeting with Warlock (a shape-changing techno-organic alien running from his evil father, The Magus, a creature capable of destroying stars in his rage), Karma's disappearance (and takeover by The Shadow King), and Magneto taking over as Headmaster of the school from Professor X. By issue #50, the team defeated The Magus, and Chris Claremont soon left, and [[DorkAge Louise Simonson]] took over.

* DefeatByModesty: Back when Genosha was a country where mutants were enslaved, the New Mutants were teleported there by a character whose powers didn't affect clothing, then had their powers neutralized. Most of them were a little embarrassed, but Wolfsbane (a devout Presbyterian) was paralyzed with shame.
* DelusionsOfDoghood: Catseye of the Hellions; thought she was an actual cat.



* DivineRaceLift: Dani Moonstar, a native american, when became a Valkyrie.



* FanService: The original book ''loved'' to show the team in their skivvies, particularly during Bret Blevins' run as artist; on top of that, he also seemed very fond of showing the effect of cold weather on girls wearing skintight suits, even when they were surrounded by lava.
** Pretty much the whole purpose of the Gosamyr character, both in-universe and out.
*** Sometimes Surge and X-23 would be this, depending on the artist.

You're not alone. Moira loves you; and I—' 'I know' says Rahne. '—but that doesn't make me ache any the less.' A follow-up 20 years later is also aborted by a simple interruption.

* CosmeticCatastrophe: Employed in the 1990 ''New Mutants Summer Special'' where Rahne is given a makeover by one of the residents of Megalopolis to seduce her over to Consumerism.
