Had the same approach to this title after a certain point. Believe I actually dropped it around the time, that they decided to a slasher parody with all of Generation X villains as the 70s/80s slasher parodies in a nightmare.

I liked the orginal Hellions too. Whatever happened to Emplate?
He was like the mutant Morbius

That was right after the god awful M-Plate arc. Larry Hama ruined the book. It was so great when Lobdell was writing but after he left Hama gutted it. Faerber did his best to make it readable again but unfortunetly too much damage was done to bring it back to where it was

Actually no, that one had to do with M. The Synch deal was when Emplate had turned him into one of his vampire minions, which was around issue 15-16.

This is still my favorate X-Title (though New X-Men is close, I like student books). I thought Synch and Chamber were phenominal and loved every issue from 1 to somewhere around issue 25. After that it dropped a little and the M-Plate stuff killed it. I ended up getting behind and pretty much dropped it for a good long time after that. I got caught up again right before Revolution and realized there wasn't much I missed save a few issues. It was actually pretty good around issue 50. I specifically liked the one with Maggot, the X-Man crossover, etc. Then Revolution actually made it better for me, though I was very angry at Synch's death. Then it just kinda ended.

The last issue was very touching, as it's the first series I ever started and ended. I was excited to see Emma and Chamber going to the X-Men but then Morrison and Casey completely ignored or altered the series ending and had Chamber running off to Europe or somewhere and Emma ignoring the fact that Xavier sent a helecopter to take her and she went off to Genosha instead before joining the team. And that pretty much set the stage for Generation X's future.

Though Jubilee is now depowered I have to say that New Warriors did wonders for her character. I like her better now than I ever did in Generation X or X-Men. I miss Chamber's classic look and powers but I'm curious if anything will ever come of this whole Apocalypse thing. I hope if they do lead into a big Apocalypse story as a result of Messiah War he'll be pulled in somehow.

Dead
Synch
Skin
Banshee

If Chamber were on that list then that'd be all 4 of my favorate characters from the Gen X days. Sad.

The only Gen X characters I care about are Banshee and Husk. Paige will come back, eventually. As for Sean, I hate Brubaker for killing him off.

OT: Nice avvy, JewishHobbit.

Thanks. I like it but I'm thinking about changing it again. Just don't know to what yet.

#1-32 were amazing and then it was all downhill from there. I loved those first couple of years or so of issues though.

There wasnt anything special about Gaia. She was as generic as they come, all the way down to her powers. She was around for more than 3 issues. She left shortly after Gen X 50, so she lasted over a year. Thing is she didnt do anything the entire time she was with the team which made her stint very unimpressive and forgettable. She was kind of like Mondo in that sense

Dirtnap and Chimera were characters that Hama used when he wrote Wolverine. Why he thought they would fit in here is beyond me.

Scott Lobdell is the best X-writer ever, imo. It's not surpiring that it went down the crapper when he left.

Thats the same thing Dani could do back in New Mutants until someone realized it was way too convenient and had her forget it

Was she a mutant? I cant remember. She was a Lobdell character so that killed her chances of joining as alot of the stuff he intended and introduced went ignored.

yeah she was a mutant..and lobdell had some good ideas...that were eventually used by claremont..such as a sentinel person joining the x-men...jubilee was helpd by a bald sentinel girl during OZT that felt as if she were being written to join the x-men....and then along come karima, lobdell had a bunch of good characters...same with Sabra...and Mondo and Blink for Gen X

I remember being dissapointed that Lobdell was leaving but also saying,"Hey, Hama is pretty awesome. He'll be good". And then...he wasn't. I ended up buying several back issues years later just because i missed the characters. I hated that they hooked up M and Synch. SOOOO forced. It felt like,"They're both black! hook em' up!". It was like Black Panther/Storm on a much smaller scale. AT least I think M is black. There seemed to be some deabate among fans about that back in the day

The Monet thing is confusing Monets mother was Algerian and her father an Ambassador is from Monaco. Monet was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia (which Larry Hama added). He also added that Monet is a citizen of Algeria, Bosnia, and France with passports from all three even though orginally Lobdell had Monet being from Morocco I believe.

Either Hama doesn't know geography, made a typo or just ignored it I'm not sure.

What happened to Mondo is he dead or in comic limbo?

I always get a little miffed whenever comic writers force a relationship down readers' throats because both characters happen to be of the same race or color. Storm was in the middle of dating Wolverine when she suddenly remembered that she fell in love with T'Challa back when she was 12, and decided that was a good foundation to build a sudden and unexpected marriage from. And wasn't Synch dating Jubilee when he suddenly started looking at Monet? Hellion was dating Wind Dancer when she suddenly left the school off-panel, and X-23 went all "River Deep Mountain High" and became his puppy.

I pray that no future writer ever decides that Luke Cage & Iron Fist should do a wife swap.
