Generation X is a team of young mutants that are based
in the newly reopened Massachusetts
Academy, now owned by Professor
Charles Xavier. The school, run by Banshee
and the White
Queen, is used to train young mutants in the use of
their powers, as well as instruct them in the tenets of
Xavier's dream of human and mutant peaceful coexistence.
The team was founded when a number of young mutants were
captured by the Phalanx entity known as Harvest to use
as guinea pigs in an experiment to assimilate mutants
into their collective. Rescued by Banshee and the White
Queen, the mutants Jubilee,
Synch, and M
became the founding members of Generation X.
The fact that the students at the Massachusetts Academy
are mutants has not been revealed to the general public.
However, Operation: Zero Tolerance is aware of Generation
X, and Jubilee was even captured by them to obtain the
secrets of the X-Men. They have since disbanded and went
there own ways.
