Banshee (Sean Cassidy)
Former interpol agent, reluctant villain, and X-Man - Sean Cassidy, also known as Banshee, takes on one of his greatest roles yet: Headmaster of the Massachusetts Academy. Using his mutant power, his sonic scream, Banshee was a loyal member of the X-Men for years. Now, Sean uses that power as an example to his young mutant students, and maybe save a couple lives here and there while he's doing it.

Emma Frost
Formerly the infamous White Queen of the Hellfire Club, Emma Frost was, for years, one of the X-Men's deadliest foes. Along with her own telepathic powers, Emma had her own group of mutant students - the Hellions - which caused the X-Men plenty of grief. However, seeing her Hellions killed in front of her very eyes caused her to change her evil ways dramatically. Accepting Charles Xavier's offer, Emma is now the co-headmistress of the Massachusetts Academy.

Jubilee (Jubilation Lee)
A California mall-rat at heart, wherever Jubilee goes, there's fireworks -- literally! Years ago, the orphan Jubilee followed a group of X-women from a mall, and was accepted as an X-Man herself! Pretty cool for a 13 year old, huh? Since that time, Jubilee's fought villain after villain, and even softened the savage Wolverine a bit. Capable of generating spontaneous pyrotechnics, Jubilee later left the X-Men for Generation X, to learn how to better use her powers.

Synch (Everett Thomas)
The all-American kid and boy-next-door, Everett Thomas found out he was a mutant capable of "synching" with other mutants, thereby gaining their powers and abilities. Everett left his mundane but comfortable life in St. Louis and enrolled in the Massachusetts Academy to learn how to be a better mutant. Like his powers, Everett adapts well to any environment, and gets along with just about everybody. However, in a surprising twist, Ev is missing from the team after the six months between #62 and #63, though the mystery about what happened to him remains to be seen...

Husk (Paige Guthrie)
Being the younger sister of a globe-trotting, world-saving X-Man going by the codename "Cannonball" isn't easy for a girl. Especially if that girl is a strong-willed, self-motivated mutant named Paige Guthrie. Hearing stories of the New Mutants' adventures when she was young, Paige always knew she wanted to be a mutant herself. When her metamorph powers surfaced, Paige embraced her genetic "gift". As a member of Generation X, Paige is known as the superheroine "Husk".

Chamber (Jonothon Starsmore)
Unlike his teammates, when Jonothon Starsmore found out he was a mutant with incredible psionic power, there were great consequences. Half of his face, neck, and upper chest were three such consequences. His 'psionic flame' literally blew off those parts of his body, and permanently paralyzed his then-girlfriend from the waist down. Jonothon enrolled in Xavier's School to learn how to control his mutant powers, in hopes of regaining the normal life he once had.

Skin (Angelo Espinosa)
With his mutant ability of growing six feet of extra skin, Angelo left his old life in the barrio and joined Generation X. After all, a grey-skinned mutant with droopy skin isn't really accepted in his neighborhood. So he did what any normal kid would do in his situation: He faked his death and fled to Massachusetts. Joining several other young mutants like himself, Angelo chose the appropriate codename of "Skin" to fight prejudice and injustice all over the world.

Artie Maddicks and Leech
Though they are two of the youngest members of Generation X, Artie and Leech have, perhaps, led the most tragic lives of the team. Leech was a member of the outcast group of mutants, the Morlocks. He witnessed the sensless death of the only family he knew at the hands of the Marauders. Artie, on the other hand, is now an orphan, with his scientist father having been shot to death. The two young boys met during their time with X-Factor, and have been inseperable ever since. They joined Generation X when members of Gene Nation tried kidnapping Leech. After the devastating events that occured between issues #62 and #63, Artie and Leech are no longer part of the Academy. There is no word on what happened to them so far.

Nicole and Claudette St. Croix
The younger twin sisters of Monet St. Croix, Nicole and Claudette *were*, for quite awhile, Monet! Confused? Sure, you are! When their older sister went missing, Nicole and the autistic Claudette merged their bodies together and replicated Monet perfectly, fooling even their father. Charading as Monet, they were even enrolled in Xavier's School as Monet. When they discovered that the mute Penance was really their sister, Monet, they graciously "traded" bodies with Monet; leaving the twins in Penance's body, and Monet in her own body. Recently, the twins were freed from Penance due to an explosion, leaving Penance as its own being. However, both twins are no longer enrolled in the Academy, but their whearabouts are still unknown.

The Penance being first came to be when Emplate transformed his sister Monet to the razor sharp, red skinned, mute creature called "Penance", as Monet's own penance for her arrogance. She was trapped as Penance for a few years, until rescued by Gateway and brought to Generation X. It was several months later that Nicole and Claudette, who had merged bodies to impersonate Monet, found out Penance was Monet, and they traded bodies with her, so they were trapped in the Penance body. Recently, the twins were set free from Penance's body after an explosion. But if they aren't Penance, and Monet isn't Penance, who is she now? The mystery will have to wait, however, as she has disappeared between issues #62 and #63. What happened to her? We'll just have to wait and see...
