When Generation X hit issue 75, they disbanded. Chamber became an X-Man, then a member of Weapon X, then a New Warrior, then an X-Man again. Jubilee, Monet, and Husk joined X-Corps. Then Husk and Jubilee joined the X-Men. Monet joined X-Factor and will be joining the X-Men soon. Sadly, Skin died.

Between New Mutants, New X-Men, and Young X-Men... that generation of students ran for 71 issues. Young X-Men 12 came out May 2009... 4 1/2 years ago, and these students are STILL students. Generation Hope came around and has since been mingled with the New X-Men kids. Now we have Jason Aaron's students showing up and mingling with them, and the Uncanny team's mutants.

I was hoping to see the New X-Men kids branch out like the original New Mutants did. I mean, their title was actually selling great before Marvel got relaunch happy and relaunched it as Young X-Men and killed it. Get that team together (Anole, Rockslide, Prodigy, Surge, Dust, Hellion, X-23, Mercury, etc.) and give them their own purpose. Move them on from being students.

But then, that might age their teachers too much
those children DID move on to become X-men. When Cyclops set up shop in San Francisco and more son in Utopia, he did away with keeping them as students and declared them all as X-men and we saw them used in the lineups. Whats happened since Schism and later AvX has been a downgrade to have them as students back in the school as most of them have already had a taste of what its like to be an X-men.
