Back to Basics. We need this in the X-Men. Seeing a school, students, teenager problems, people trying to kill them.

Not much happened, maybe no the greatest story, yet it is in the right place. What i expect and love to see in an X-Men Book (after years of decay). Looking forward for more of this GenX.
