For those, reading Grand Design, here is a "director's commentary" of sorts for Second Genesis #1 straight from Ed Piskor's YouTube channel.

Just finished the first trade of Aaron's Wolverine and X-Men, and now I've got a hunger for "X-Men as an Academy of Adventure" type stories. Besides that run, does anyone have any recommendations?

My Hero Academia.

Not actually the joke answer it sounds like. It's the best kind of Superhero Academy story around these days, certainly better than anything X-Men has had in a long time.

But if you want to stick with Marvel then check out the original Generation X as well as the new one with the same name.

He wouldn’t be government backed though because the government is full of quirk users.

[up]I do find everyone keeps trying to make connections to Western comics, specifically that the Big Bad is either Marshal Law or Billy Butcher.

The Big Bad is similar to neither of those characters. He's an Evil Overlord who formerly ruled Japan from the shadows with the power to steal & transfer powers & is grooming the other main antagonist to take up his legacy since he's crippled.

The villain you are mentioning was an Arc Villain who's been locked up since the arc he first appeared in.

Marvel has been doing such a big work in bringing back Cyclops and try to make people like him... and now they shoot themselves in the foot with "X-Men Grand Design: X-Tinction", which reminds everyone that he was a terrible parent and a monumental dick to Madelyne Pryor.

Random thought: the X-Men have a ton of bad future/alternate timeline stories. Sre th here any where things actually, y'know, work out?

I mean, the entire point of X-Men: Grand Design is to retell the entire history of the X-Men, including the bits where they are terrible parents and dicks. To leave that part out would be a huge disservice to Scott, Madelyne Pryor, and that point in X-Men history, since it was pretty damn important in the long term.

How is Grand Design anyway? It sounds interesting, but I can't help but feel that trying to cram the entire history of the X-Men into three issues would make it compressed as hell.

[up] It isn't three issues — it's six huge, oversized issues, two issues for each era. And it's been pretty amazing so far.

[up][up] I've been enjoying it. It's very, very condensed, which creates some utter lunacy. It also changes a lot of details, to make for a smoother narrative.

[up] Well, #3 did that. I'd say #4 was actually kinda the opposite.

But it was also a frigging amazing issue. And one hell of an ending to the issue. "I suggest we riot." Fuck yeah.
