    Eye boy is like the Fantomex of X Kids, no matter how much people don't like him it seems like writers all love him because they keep using him.
    In protest against Marvel's constant ignoring of Surge.

    I don't dislike Eye Boy. And I don't fault the Gen X writer for wanting to use students who never really got the limelight/development. Because really if we think about it: Julian, Cessily, Nori, Santo, Victor and so on should have graduated by now. So they really don't need to be students.

    But alas they're stuck in late teens limbo.

    The thing is these characters did get spotlight. They were the main roster of Wolverine and the X-men and its successor Spider-man and the X-men. Quentin, especially has been used quite a bit. He was created back in the Morrison era, so I dont get why he'd still be a student. Most of the New X-men kids havent had much to do in years. FYI, they did graduate at the end of WATX. Unfortuantely that didnt lead to any progression for them in the main books

    true. But they're still treated/seen as students by the X-Men thus making their "graduation" a sham.

    At least we see them. For a year and a half, all we got of Surge was a variant cover for Storm. At least we saw her and Gentle have speaking roles. At least Guggenheim is actively trying to include the forgotten X-Men. He promised important roles for Armor and Rockslide at the end of the first arc. Plus, I can write off Apocalypse Wars as Anole just being Anole, who seems to be a lot of comic book writers' fav.

    I guess we'll see how much of a resurgence it really is and how much of a part they will play. I like to think if we keep making noise about them and having enough polls on how much we as readers still like these characters and want to see their stories continue to develop that they might listen and do something with the backlog of NXM characters put to the side so creators can have their own X kids.
    Most likely artist fluff. I wouldn't mind putting the Aaron!kids and post-Second Coming kids as the current students if it meant the New X-Men got to headline a main team. Making noise got Digital Codes back, fewer events, and even ResurrXiOn, so I think people bringing up New X-Men over and over again will tell editors and writers what we really want.

    He seems really passionate about the NX-Men kids so I don't know why anything hasn't been done yet.

    Yep I feel the same way.. I mean Morph, Triage and Hijack were great additions. I know Hijack is a bit old so he should have been used on Xmen Gold tbh.. But they could have used so many good characters. They had Georgia Dakei from Xfactor that was a women of color and blank slate mostly, they had Loa, Surge, Trance, hell they could have repowered Wind Dancer for me. As far the guys they could have used Prodigy- they missed the boat not having his sister Kim becoming an inhuman drawing him into a dilemna. She wanted powers but wasnt a mutant and it would have be a good nod making her an inhuman. Rockslide, Anole and/or Gold Balls would have been nice comic relief and been great foils to Hellion being serious and hot headed.

    Dust isn't even a full fledged NXM. Paniccia, get a clue.

    Again, how is this any different than before? Lemire had the kids be lead in an entire arc over in New X-men and Elixir was used in Uncanny. I think its too early to claim any type of resurgence

    Art.com and AllPosters.com have the licenses for a lot of POD Marvel covers. Random selection of NXM covers:

    Otherwise you'll probably have to commission it yourself.

    Know any good artists who are fairly inexpensive but do great work? I'd love to get some NXM art, but money is tight.
