Generation X was directed by Jack Sholder and it aired on FOX on February 20, 1996. It is based on the Marvel Comics comic-book series Generation X, a spin-off of the X-Men franchise. It was produced by New World Entertainment and Marvel Entertainment.
In the film Emma Frost (Finola Hughes) and Banshee (Jeremy Ratchford) are the headmasters of Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. They recruit Jubilee (Heather McComb) and Skin (Austin Rodriguez), and introduce them to their fellow students; M (Amarilis), Mondo (Bumper Robinson), Buff (Suzanne Davis) and Refrax (Randall Slavin). 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 Russel is back and wants to use Skin’s brain in his experiments.
