For the first time in years, the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning throws open its doors once again in GENERATION X #1! Join writer Christina Strain (Runaways, Civil War II: Choosing Sides) and artist Amilcar Pinna (Astonishing X-Men, All-New Ultimates) as they join forces to bring fans the next generation of mutantkind – if the students survive!
Once a shining beacon and safe haven for young mutants everywhere, the next class of X-Men begin their long journey right here at the Xavier Institute. But let’s face it: not all mutants are created equal. Some young mutants aren’t cut out to be the next X-Men. You just hope will survive their first run-in with a Sentinel. But Jubilee isn’t about to sell her class of underdogs short. Under her instruction and mentorship, she hopes to navigate them through growing pains and dangers that would put even the most seasoned X-Men to the test!
“Traditionally, the Xavier Institute’s been the place for societally rejected young mutants to seek shelter,” says writer Christina Strain in an interview with Marvel.com. “Once there, they’re taught how to properly harness their powers and sometimes, after graduating, some of them have gone on to become full-fledged X-Men. But let’s be real for a second. Not every young mutant is X-Men material…”
What do you do when you’re the outcasts among the outcasts? When you don’t fit in – even at the school you were promised you’d belong? You forge your own path. Welcome to Generation X, hope you survive the experience! It all kicks off this Spring when Strain & Pinna bring you GENERATION X #1!
