X-Men Pin-up FRAMED #399 Generation X Chris Bachalo Husk Banshee White Queen


SKU: 10552 Category:


Chamber, Banshee, White Queen, M, Husk, Synch, Jubilee, Skin and Penance! Unlike the X-Men and New Mutants, Generation X did not attend Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters in upstate New York or learn from Professor Xavier himself. Instead, they trained at the Massachusetts Academy, located in Berkshire County, Massachusetts, and were mentored by Banshee, an Irish X-Man who possessed a “sonic scream,” and the former villain White Queen, an aristocratic telepath. Generation X consisted of: Husk (Paige Guthrie), a Kentucky coal miner’s daughter who could shed her skin, revealing a different substance each time. She is the younger sister of The New Mutants’ Cannonball, and elder sister of Icarus. Skin (Angelo Espinosa), a former reluctant teenage gang member on the streets of east Los Angeles who possessed six feet of extra skin. He could stretch his extremities, but mostly considered his mutation, which caused him to have sagging gray skin and painful headaches, a curse. M (Monet St. Croix), a “perfect” young woman born into a rich family from Monaco who could fly, possessed super strength and had telepathic abilities. Her arrogant manner was an annoyance to her teammates and her habit of going into deep trances or fugue states when deep in thought was a mystery to her teachers. Mysteries surrounding the St. Croix family would play a big part in the series. Jubilee (Jubilation Lee), a Chinese-American “mall rat” from Beverly Hills, California who could produce explosive energy. Jubilee had been a junior member of the X-Men in the early 1990s, and joined Generation X to learn more about her powers. Chamber (Jonothon “Jono” Starsmore), a British mutant who produced huge blasts of energy from his upper chest. When his powers first manifested, they destroyed the lower half of his face and chest, leaving him with only his limited telepathic powers with which to communicate, and releasing him from any necessity to eat, drink, or breathe. Because of this, he is characteristically sullen and bitter. Synch (Everett Thomas), an African-American teenager from St. Louis, Missouri, known for his pleasant, supportive temperament, who could copy the powers of other mutants/superhumans within close, physical proximity. Penance, a silent, childlike and mysterious mutant who possessed diamond hard, red skin and razor-sharp claws. Penance appeared mysteriously at the Massachusetts Academy and at first, little was known about her. According to the Generation X Ashcan, the writers originally intended her to be a girl named Yvette from Yugoslavia. A hint of this can be seen when her mind is read by Emma Frost, revealing Eastern European tanks on the march in her memories. This background was later changed by the following creative team.
