Generation X: The Movie

Generation X is a made-for-tv movie aired by Fox in 1996. Based on the comic of the same name, the movie followed the students at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, as well as their teachers, Sean Cassidy and Emma Frost.

New student, Jubilee meets her fellow students and tries to find her place amongst them. Things are complicated by Russell Tresh, a scientist who believes that experimentation on mutants will lead to a breakthrough in psychic powers. Using a 'dream machine' he tries to lure Angelo Espinosa into meeting with him so that he can cut out part of his brain.

The movie was considered a failure due to low ratings and the planned follow-up TV series never materialised.
