Generation X was a young mutant superhero team lead and tutored by Banshee and Emma Frost. Banshee and Emma Frost trained the students to properly use their powers at Emma's school, the Massachusetts Academy, which was located in Boston, Massachusetts. The Generation X students frequently clashed with M's brother, who was a villain named Emplate. Eventually, Emma Frost's motives became in question, and Banshee became depressed due to the death of his former lover Moira MacTaggert. Matters only became worse when Emma Frost murdered her sister Adrienne Frost after Adrienne had planted a bomb in the Generation X's headquarters, which killed a fellow mutant codenamed Synch. These unfortunate circumstances combined led to the disband of Generation X.
