Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
One of Marvel’s many X-Men-related titles from the mid-1990s, Generation X recalled the original X-Men concept: mutant teenagers at an exclusive boarding school learn to use their powers while fighting supervillains. Rather than the team’s original mentor, Professor X, this team features longtime X-Man Sean Cassidy (aka Banshee) and Emma Frost, formerly the villainous White Queen. Several stories continue or begin in this volume, including the return of characters from Cassidy’s past and the machinations of Frost’s younger sister. Writer Lobdell (Superboy. Vol. 1: Incubation) prioritizes the emotional relationships of the students and teachers over the plot’s action, creating an enjoyably soapy boarding school story. Unfortunately, it takes place within the tangled continuity of Marvel’s “X” titles from the 1990s. Because much of that continuity has been rewritten, rebooted, or erased, Generation X will be confusing to those familiar only with the current X-Men. Adding to the confusion, an assortment of artists worked on the issues, and the inconsistency is noticeable in this collection.

Verdict For those versed in the X-Men of the 1990s, the continuity works here; readers should begin with Volume 1. For others unfamiliar with the earlier works, this title is not recommended.—Robert Mixner, Bartholomew Cty. PL, Columbus, IN
