The good, the bad, the mutant.
18 March 2006 | by maggussSee all my reviews

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.
