    This series is likely not what people expected it would be - it's very different to its namesake and is pretty abstract when compared to the rest of the X-lineup. When it comes to X-Men, it is particularly difficult to put together a team because every person has a different idea of what the X-Men should be. When it came to X-Men: Gold, I was struck by a tagline on an ad " "You asked for it. You got it" " as it seemed to suggest they were going with a straight superhero book because that's what was being demanded the most. That might be what people thought they wanted from the X-line, but Generation X is what never knew you needed. Read Full Review

    This is a series that brings a lot of new faces to an old team of heroes that we know and love. Xavier's legacy lives on in this new generation of mutants. So far, they're not acting like a cohesive unit at all, but I'm really hoping these kids can get on board with the concept of being a new X-Men team. We'll just have to keep reading to see what happens! Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze May 31, 2017

    Generation X #2 was a taste of what this cast of characters can come to expect from the new Xavier Institute. This issue made the statement that things are going to work differently with the students and they backed this up from the way they approached handling the Purifiers to how Jubilee explained all of this to the students.

    AiPT! - Jason Segarra May 31, 2017

    The art has highs and lows, as does the story, but this is a decent outing for a tertiary X-book trying to establish its place in the world. Read Full Review

    Overall I do like the concept for this book I just feel that there are x-books in the past that have done it better. Maybe now that the team is together and the learning is about to begin we will get some stories to really pull us in. But for now I'm still wondering why I should invest in this series.

    A solid, interesting premise to this new X-Comic is overshadowed by all the side material shoved in on top of it. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 1, 2017

    Some teen X-Men books really shake up the formula, and others seem content to play it safe. Generation X is, sadly, shaping up to be the latter. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Dan Clark Jun 6, 2017

    Amilcar Pinna art is also not doing the book any favors. Character faces look distorted at times and widely inconsistent. Being only two issues in this series can still right the ship by figuring out exactly what it wants to be. It is fine to follow a formula as long as you execute it properly. So far this is not much more than a poorer version of a better comic. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jun 1, 2017

    This is nothing like the Gen X that came before it - and it didn't have to be. But readers hoping that Strain and Pinna could capture some of the outsider appeal of that title would be better served to look elsewhere. Read Full Review
