Generation X (1996) Trailer


Banshee and Emma Frost are the headmasters of Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. They recruit Jubilee, and introduce her to her fellow students; M, Skin, Mondo, Buff and Refrax. The students are learning to cope with their mutant powers, and come into conflict with the "townies" who mock the students. Emma Frost worked previously with a mad scientist named Russel Tresh who felt that he could extract part of mutant's brains to develop psychic powers, and Russell is back and wants to use Skin's brain in his experiments.

Cast


Notes

  • Generation X is a made-for-TV-movie based on the Marvel Comics series Generation X aired by the Fox Broadcasting Company. The extremely low-budget film was scoffed at by fans and plans to develop a syndicated series were abandoned.
  • Buff and Refrax were two new characters developed for and introduced in Generation X to replace the characters of Chamber and Husk. Husk and Chamber were absent from the film due to budget constraints limiting the special effects required to depicted their powers. Other characters also had the powers altered due to budget constraints.
  • Many fans were disappointed and offended that Jubilee, a Chinese-American character, was portrayed by Heather McComb, a Caucasian actress. According to an interview with director Jack Sholder, the original script and casting breakdown sent out to agents did not specify an Asian actress for the part of Jubilee.[2]

Trivia

  • The X-Men Arcade game (based on the Pryde of X-Men pilot) was in the background in the Generation X pilot. The scene where Jubilee was in the arcade room playing Street Fighter, her powers activated and Tresh noticed the display. In the background behind Tresh is the arcade game.
