    "New X-Men is a superhero comic book series published by Marvel Comics within the X-Men franchise. After the end of Grant Morrison's run on X-Men vol. 2 titled New X-Men, the title was used for a new series, New X-Men: Academy X. The title was later shortened to simply New X-Men.

    New X-Men: Academy X was launched during the X-Men ReLoad event. The Academy X subtitle was dropped from the title when the new creative team of Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost took over the series with issue #20.

    Whereas the other X-Men comics mostly deal with established adult mutants, this series concentrates on the lives of young students residing at the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning as they learn to control their powers.

    After the 2007 crossover X-Men: Messiah Complex, the New X-Men title was canceled and briefly relaunched as Young X-Men for 12 issues. The series was written by Marc Guggenheim. After the first arc of Young X-Men, the characters began appearing in the pages of Uncanny X-Men. With the cancellation of Young X-Men the characters were folded onto the main X-Men books, appearing most prominently in the pages of X-Men: Legacy, Wolverine and the X-Men, and most recently, in X-Men." - Wiki

    Hey guys, first of all, thanks so much for watching!!
    As always, if you can remember to thumbs up the video, and share it everywhere, since that really helps a lot!! And if you're new, dont forget to subscribe!

    Footnote though - the way this run of the X-Men was connected to the gifted, is that repeatedly through this run, these children are referred to as "The Gifted". While the school has always been a school for "Gifted Youngesters", this was one of the first times were a team was referred to as "The Gifted" in this volume!
    Aside from story/plot/who the characters ARE wise...yeah Fox doesnt care about that, and never has.

      Adam Leslie -Josh ended up resurrecting himself from the grave but had some mental issues for a while. He tracked down the guys who killed him then killed them and resurrected them over and over, then tried to heal some mutants with M-Pox before he lost control and started killing mutants and Magneto's Uncanny team that came to save him. They stopped him and left him with Xorn to recuperate and get back in control.

      It’s a great book and it’s a shame how the characters got so mistreated after this series. They are mostly background in the following x-books, with the exception of rockslide and anole.

                    did you ever get to read the origonal series of "the new mutants. it delved deeply into the school side of life mixed with being young heroes but on a more realistic scale of mutants living in the shadows without the murder and constant attacks. it really gave the character more time to develop and flesh out. Magik was keeping her demon side a secret from her team mates, Mirage was dealing with the death of her parents, Sunspot with the death of his girlfriend, Cannonball was facing leaving his family without a source of income to come to the school and wolfesbane was messed up by her strict religious upbringing. each character had a solid back story fro before they came to the school and family commitments.

                        Decimation gets overlooked a lot, but that New X-men team went through hell characters dying left and right and some of the best character development for a younger class of mutants since maybe generations x and this was a HUGE cast. I mean to go through M, Stryker, Nimrod, Limbo and more in just the first year. Every arc was an event. I seriously miss this book an wish they were an equivalent in the X verse now. Generation Hope just never did it for me

                                        They are nothing like The Gifted. They are New X-men, not The Gifted. The Gifted is a word that Charles Xavier uses for his student at his school. It's a place for people with Gifted.

                                                Why is Magik so unattractive? I thought she was super hot? What happened to her nice legs and hot body?

                                                        That's not the same Protege the Living Tribunal got rid of all those years ago, is it? I kind of doubt it, but just wondering. I didn't read much of the New Mutants except for the William Striker story. The asshole who had people thinking he could see their future, and save them from being killed. Like the guy and the taxi.
                                                        Other than that, I'm not really a fan of the New Mutants. I tend to stay away from comics like this. Like the Runaways too. Too much teenager shit.

                                                        Don't you mean, Cuckoos? Not Cookoos.

                                                          See this is why i think the movies are doing better then comic books i read a couple comics and its dark a lot of them are i like how the movie universe does it its serious but has a good amount of comedy so its not to dark even the last avengers movie although it was a bit more darker then other it still had a lot of levity. And don’t like M day to basically knock off a bunch of mutants and make them lose their powers I didn’t like and having so many mega level mutants in these comics I’m like well then just forget the other mutants then lol i think the movie universe my choice not saying comic isn’t good but damn its a bit to dark
