One of the many 1990s spin-off books from ComicBook/XMen, ''Generation X'' told the story of the [[MarvelUniverse Marvel Universe's]] latest group of teenage mutant trainee superheroes. It went through various authors and artists, but was popular for most of its six-and-a-half-year run, before being fairly abruptly cancelled in a deck-clearing exercise at the end of the 1990s.

!!Tropes



[[/folder]]

[[folder: The 2017 2nd Volume]]
* AscendedExtra: At least half of the main cast consists of this:
** Eye Guy was a [[EnsembleDarkhorse fairly popular]] but minor supporting character from Jason Aaron's run on ComicBook/WolverineAndTheXMen.
** Nature Girl was introduced in the second volume of Wolverine and the X-Men but received little screen time.
** Bling! is a long time, rarely spotlighted background student, having only had a small role in Adjectiveless X-Men in the last decade.
* BlessedWithSuck: Newcomer Nathaniel Carver, who can get a psychic feeling from locations about what happened there.. but dosen't want the inevitable future that brings of working in crime scenes and other horrible places.
** Eye Guy can see just about anything but is physically unappealing due to having an eye everywhere.. even his tongue.
* TheBusCameBack: Jubilee returns to the X-Men titles in a main role for the first time since Marvel NOW!, while Quintin Quire returns for the first time since then, period.
** Eye Guy returns after being absent since Spider-Man and the X-Men
** Chamber returns for the first time in years as a supporting character while Husk is also set to make an apperance, having disappeared since the end of Aaron's run on Wolverine and the X-Men.
* ExcitedShowTitle: Bling! as always has an exclamation point.
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: The team consists of mutants who don't really fit elsewhere.
* RealityEnsues: The X-Men have realized that training every mutant to be an X-Man has only lead to an extremely high mortality rate so they've decided to instead divide up the students into future X-Men, Future Ambassadors for Mutantkind and [[AndZoidberg Generation X]]
** Quintin is put into this group rather than the future X-Men due to a long history of being a WildCard.
* SpiritualSuccessor: To the Original Generation X. The team itself is one to the Special Class from Grant Morrison's run on X-Men, who were likewise a RagtagBunchOfMisfits.
* UnexpectedCharacter: An entire cast of them aside from Jubilee.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: The reason Eye Guy and Bling! are on the team.
* WildCard: Why Quintin is part of Generation X. He's such a coin flip that the X-Men can't trust him for either of the other classes.
