The characters of Buff and Refrax were created especially for the movie. Characters such as Chamber and Penance were left out because the SFX needed to portray them would have raised the budget too high.See more »

The good, the bad, the mutant., 18 March 2006
Author: magguss from United States

For it's time, probably the best comic adaption made. This is before comics adaptions became big. It was plagued by a bad plot, a terrible time-slot and advertising that was minimal and geared only to the comic crowd. Anyone who didn't read the comic, or at least some X-Men comics and Wizard had no clue it was even related to the X-Men. They didn't even play off of Jubilee's popularity. Marvel, at the time was a different company and was pushing hard to make this movie a TV show, and get the pilot movie itself more airtime. But, at the time the TV companies wouldn't -touch- something like that (makes you wonder how Mutant X made it).

The characters were well played, with Banshee, the White Queen, Jubilee and Skin directly pulled from the comics, though with Mondo and M being watered down for more -real- versions. Husk was replaced by a body-building -strong- girl, and they added-in a cyclops knock-off.

I think the concept should be looked upon again.

Generation X is a story about the younger mutants at Xavier school for the gifted, the ones not old enough to be X-Men. They used an alternate Mansion somewhere in the midwest, and were lead by Banshee and the White Queen. I'd love to get into the plot, but I only saw the broadcast as a kid in '96. I just remember the plot wasn't very good.

Here's hoping that it gets a DVD release, perhaps in the big-deluxe-special edition DVD for X-men: The Last Stand, or something. Quality comic book TV-media has gotten the short end of the stick as far as DVD releases. I'd love to see the Saban Entertainment version of the X-Men cartoon, or the Maxx from MTV's oddities get a DVD release.
