Generation X, Vol. 1
The Xavier Institute for Mutant Education and Outreach has opened its doors, and is ready to foster the next generation of heroes and diplomats! But this time around, the X-Men recognize an unfortunate truth: not all mutants are created equal. Some mutants are just not made to fight Sentinels or serve as ambassadors on behalf of their kind. Some mutants will be lucky just to survive another day in a world that hates and fears them. These are the students who should be kept out of harm's way when the Purifiers target the campus! And who better to mentor mutantkind's lovable losers through life out of the limelight...than perpetual sidekick Jubilee! But will her Generation X survive the experience?!

    I was hesitant about liking this series because I'm not a huge fan of any of the characters chosen for the main cast, but it's actually super fun! While I wish we could have included other characters like Dust, Hellion, and Elixir, these other kids have grown on me! Quentin is fun, Benjamin is super cute, and I ship them super hard! All the other characters are fun too! Silly powers, for the most part, but their interactions are what makes this series work! 5/5 stars!

    Always loved the wackiness of this generation, it was one of the reasons why Wolverine & X-Men was such a good series and now I've grown up to love all these minor characters, I love the fact that not all of these mutants are made for combat, and those that are, we get to see them go through different growing stages until they will be able to join the main team, Rockslide already made it and Quentin Quire looks next on the line, that is, if he doesn't end up becoming a villain again.

The writing and artwork has an original style, all the characters felt real, I'm ready for the second volume.

    The X-Men have been missing a good comic about the school for three years now, since Wolverine and the X-Men fizzled out after Aaron's departure. This one is finally a worthy replacement (though on a smaller scale, focusing on just one of the groups of students at the newest school).The heart of the comic is wonderful characterization. We get some old favorites, like many of the survivors from the original Generation X, Quintin Quire from the Morrison run, and a few others from more recent runs, The X-Men have been missing a good comic about the school for three years now, since Wolverine and the X-Men fizzled out after Aaron's departure.

We get some old favorites, like many of the survivors from the original Generation X, Quintin Quire from the Morrison run, and a few others from more recent runs, plus a few originals. They're not necessarily the characters I wanted to see in a new Young X-Men book, but I quickly came to like them. At just one or two issues long each, the various stories within this volume do a great job of spotlighting them, telling us who they are, and (already) giving them a chance to grow. (Though I have some qualms with Quintin's story, which seems to ignore his graduation.)I felt like the run had really hit its stride by the final issue. It's got an unfortunate cliffhanger that makes me think that it should have been pushed off into the next volume, but maybe it was included just to show how strong the characterization and interactions would be by the end.Sadly, this newest reboot of the X-Men line has been as mediocre as all the reboots since Secret Wars ... but Generation X is the one standout I've seen among the group titles (joining the standouts from the previous run: Wolverine and Old Man Logan, which survived into All-All-All-New or whatever it's called).

Quinten repairs the trashed classroom, then displays a very aggressive method in dealing with The Pacifiers. Offbeat former team members make an appearance in dealing with the assault, and Jubilee gives us a taste of what kind of leader she is capable of being.It’s very captivating see this series continue to come out swinging; issue #2 picks up right where #1 left off, throwing the reader right in to the frying pan of an unexpected battle. Broo, Chamber, Shark-Girl, Graymalkin, Gentle, and Trance all make fitting appearances, and their presence was very exciting. The vibe from #1 turns a little darker in terms of action, yet remains fun and thrilling for the reader to absorb. This helps set the tone that even though this is a team of students, the threats they face are still very real and tangible. Blending a sense of realism and fantasy with ease, #2 does awesome work in developing of every character in the team’s roster, rounding out their introductions while diving deeper in to their individual abilities and perspectives. Quinten’s whimsically aggressive nature, Bling’s protective instinct and drive, Benjamin’s capabilities, and Nathaniel’s reason to stay at the school, all open many doors for what the future of this series can be. Issue #1 pondered a sense of worry in Jubilee’s aptitude for leadership, but in moments of pressure and tension within the pages of issue #2, her clarity, critical thinking, caring nature, and proactive mentality prove her to be exactly the kind of leader this team may need.Overall:Strain’s writing and dialogue is virtually uncanny - she captures the voice and essence of these characters with valuable precision. Pinna’s art feels perfectly in sync and really drives home the intent of every panel. From tangible dialogue to unique design, everything about Generation X feels ON POINT! This creative team embodies the spirit of Generation X, and in turn is stepping up to show that they too are a force to be reckoned with. Presenting young misfits full of potential and facing a real threat felt very nostalgic, already making Generation X a creatively unique beacon for what the ResurrXion line is intended to mean.9/10I wrote this review in partnership with Columbus Comics Corner.CCC review Tumblr Link: https://columbuscomicscorner.tumblr.c...CCC on Twitter: /twitter.com/comicscornerpodMy personal Twitter: twitter.com/Antwonito1021My "Daily X-Men Facts" Twitter: twitter.com/DailyXMenFacts
