Added DiffLines:

* SiblingFusion: It is revealed in Issue #31 of ''Generation X'' that the Monet St. Croix we've been following is actually a gestalt being created by her younger twin sisters Claudette and Nicole merging together. The twins can also merge with their brother Emplate to form M-Plate.

Added DiffLines:

* PowerIncontinence: Jubilee, at the time, had very little control of her powers when she was emotional or agitated. She exploits this when Emplate has the team captive, goading him into feeding on her first by giving him a series of insults and a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech. Only after he's railing at her about how she doesn't know anything about him or his family, as he's siphoning her power, does she point out how being emotionally unbalanced affects her powers, and now his. Cue a big Boom.

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.

[[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.
