General Fics
X-Men: The Early Years by L. Burke
  • Recommended by: lillolillo
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: This beloved series follows the Original Five (Scott, Hank, Warren, Jean & Bobby) as teens at the mansion under Professor Xavier's mentorship. These are tales of the downtime between X-missions — all the normal hijinks that teenagers comit ... well, almost normal. Add mutant powers, a crafty, strategical genius, a red head with a temper, a science whiz with a thing for Twinkies and Star Trek, his side-kick who freezes underwear, and a good-hearted millionare with wings — not to mention an occasionally exhasperated mentor and a perky social worker who's more perceptive than she seems. If you ever wondered what they were up to when not out saving the world, or how Jean survived four testosterone-poisoned boys, this is your insight into those early years. Very few writers are quite so ... original ... when it comes to adolescent capers.
