    I liked it better when it was just a big mansion with 12 X-Men living in it.

    I would have liked if the concepts Morrison(and Claremont in X-Treme) was exploring(with a full-fledged mutant minority subculture) had been fleshed out over the last 15 years or so instead, but all the Marvel books would have had to reflect that huge mutant population, and Marvel clearly wasn't having that.
    A) I wasn't suggesting millions of students, the vast majority of mutants wouldn't be affiliated with the X-Men at all, just living ordinary lives.

    B) I disagree. Worldbreakers are few and far between and there are more than enough X-Men to handle them. That's why the X-Corps concept worked so well, to me anyway.

    A book either needs to be about the kids with some adult supervision like in Gen X and New Mutants, or the kid characters need to be unique and kept to a minimum like Kitty and Jubilee were when they first joined.
    This is what I was trying to say in the X-Men Red thread. I totally agree with this.

    You can't add millions of super-powered teenagers to the world and expect things to just keep on going, ordinarily. Even if most of them just blow snot and only 1 in 10,000 can melt galaxies with their minds, you will still completely destabilize human civilization(which is not necessarily a bad thing in my mind, it just not going to be same old, same old).

    X-Corporation/Mutants Sans Frontiers were the two concepts from this era that were completely wasted by the No More Mutants thing, and had this brave new world that Morrison created continued, they would have been the way to navigate this new scene. Hundreds of students at the Westchester mansion is just messy, though, and no one but Morrison actually pulled it off well.

    I think the X-men setting up different schools in different parts of the world would have been the better way to go about it. I myself think that the X-men should have a base outside of the school, that would function for mission purposes and the school be a school. This would open up oppurtunities for some X-men to be teachers at the school instead of the main team being shoehorned into teachers.

    That's the only way to do it reasonably.

    I think this was one reason I really liked New Mutant vs hellions. They had their own culture. Gen X was right in the middle. I wish they would have also had some students at Weschester so that there would have been beef with Gen X kids.

    Tag, with the silliest power ever, who was depowered and blown up? Who could possibly forget such a character..

    Shola wasn't created at the schools. Lord Claremont made him in Excalibur.

    I like some of the student characters post Morrison. Overall no. I liked it smaller. Best of the new characrers were x23 cuckoos dust surge and a few others.
