I "audited" the class and decided to share the events with all of you here wrapped up into a nice blog:

@JeanGreySchoolATTENTION STUDENTS (both local and all over the world) FUTURE HISTORY CLASS IS ABOUT TO BEGIN!
@KidGladiator1Why does Kid Gladiator need a class to teach him about the future? I know my future. It involves punching.
@_Broodling_Gah! There's the bell. I hope the seat next to idie_okonkwo is still free.
@idie_okonkwo_Broodling_ The one behind me is.
@JGSHeadmistressGood afternoon and welcome to FUTURE HISTORY 101. A special welcome to those follwing along on Twitter. Today's class is going to be a little different than usual. But before we get into that, roll call! Anole?
@_Anole_Here, JGSHeadmistress!
@JGSHeadmistressRockslide?
@SANTOSRULESIn the flesh!
@JGSHeadmistressIdie?
@idie_okonkwoHere, JGSHeadmistress.
@JGSHeadmistressQuentin? QUENTIN!
@QQuirePresent. Against my better judgment.
@JGSHeadmistressKubark?
@KidGladiator1KID GLADIATOR IS HERE! MAY I GO NOW?
@JGSHeadmistressNo you may not, KidGladiator1. Broo?
@_Broodling_Present and eager to begin learning, Headmistress Pryde!
@SANTOSRULES_anole_ Still can't believe they let a Brood in here.
@_Anole_SANTORULES Racist.
@idie_okonkwoSANTORULES You know he follows your twitter, right?
@SANTOSRULES_Anole_ BROOD AREN'T A RACE! THEY ARE ALIENS!
@JGSHeadmistressAll right, class. Settle down.
@DeathlockL17Is it just this unit or is this a rather frightening collection of children?
@JGSHeadmistressWe have a new student with us today. Let’s all say hello to GenesisHero.
@GenesisHeroHello. You can call me Evan.
@SANTOSRULESUm… is it just me or does he totally look like Apocalypse?
@_Anole_No, it’s not just you.
@KidGladiator1Terrific. We have added a pale-faced frail looking new student to the mix. Exactly what this school needed more of.
@SANTOSRULESKidGladiator1 Maybe you two can go tanning.
@_Anole_SANTORULES KidGladiator1 I'ma tag along. No reason.
@KidGladiator1SANTORULES You look like something we would eat for breakfast on the Shi'ar homeworld.
@_Broodling_Ms Pryde, if I may, I would just like to take this opportunity to personally welcome Genesis. I hope he finds these surroundings as intellectually stimulating as I have.
@JGSHeadmistressWhy thank you, _Broodling_ .
@QQuireHmph. Knew Brood were good at eating people’s asses. Didn’t realize they were so good at kissing them, too.
@_Broodling_I recognize your attempts at good natured ribbing, friend Quentin, and may I just say, I appreciate the sentiment.
@QQuireWhen the revolution comes, you’ll be first against the wall, Sleazy.
@_Broodling_Why thank you, that sounds like a tremendous honor!
@QQuire_Broodling_ Although Kitty's looking good in that sweater...maybe you're smarter than you look.
@_Broodling_QQuire I cannot tell you how excited I am to be the recipient of your mutant humor! WXM
@JGSHeadmistressAll right, keep it down back there. And let’s open our books to chapter three
@KidGladiator1You, GenesisHero. Frail one. What are your powers?
@GenesisHeroWell, my uncle tells me I can do anything I set my mind to.
@KidGladiator1Your uncle sounds like an idiot.
@SANTOSRULESQQuire FOR REAL! Is it just me or do... parts... look bigger today?
@GenesisHeroWhat? Why would you say such a thing?
@QQuireKidGladiator1 Burn. SANTORULES I've got a chart tracking their daily status. A very detailed chart.
@SANTOSRULESKidGladiator1 SO DO I! LET'S COMPARE!! QQuire Ooops! Meant that last one to you, Q.
@KidGladiator1The standards at this school are abysmal! At a Shi'ar academy, someone this weak and puny would have never been permitted inside. Let alone allowed to consort with warriors such as myself! Instead his parents, if they were honorable, would have set him adrift on an asteroid as an infant and left him to rot among the stars!
@SANTOSRULESKidGladiator1 HEY! If the She-Ra Academy is so good, why don't you go back there? WXM
@GenesisHeroI don’t understand. Did I do something wrong?
@idie_okonkwoIt’s okay, GenesisHero. Don’t let them bother you. We’re all devils and monsters here. Same as you.
@GenesisHeroI don’t think I like this place.
@idie_okonkwoWhoops I forgot to put a smiley face. I am smiling! It's OK that I am a devil!
@JGSHeadmistressAll right. Can the chit-chat. Don’t make me turn your vocal chords intangible.
@KidGladiator1It's not too late. I could find us an asteroid real fast.
@JGSHeadmistressWe have a special guest lecturer today, a friend of our headmaster’s. So let’s all give our undivided attention to Mr…. um… Mr. DeathlokL17 .
@SANTOSRULES_Anole_ WOAH! CYBORG DUDE! Or android? What's the difference again?
@QQuireSANTORULES Cyborg, obvi.
@_Anole_idie_okonkwo Gurl, I love your weave today.
@idie_okonkwo_Anole_ I don't know what that is.
@DeathlockL17Greetings, mutant youngsters. I am Deathlok Unit L17, manufactured by Roxxon in the year 2030. I have come to talk to you today about the future. The future is a violent and terrible place. Know that at least 43.897% of you will die before reaching adulthood.
@JGSHeadmistressAll right, well…that’s an awfully specific percentage but obviously no one can predict the future so exactly
@DeathlockL17Correction. This unit is equipped with tachyon probability generators... And thus can calculate exact statistical forecasts for all possible future timelines. For example...
@JGSHeadmistressOkay, I really don’t think we should get so specific with the students
@DeathlockL17idie_okonkwo There is a 34.7% chance you will live to become leader of the X-Men. And a 39.7% chance you will die in the next six weeks at the hands of the adolescent Hellfire Club.
@idie_okonkwoCan you tell if I go to hell or not?
@JGSHeadmistressidie_okonkwo I'm sure the other 20-something percent is great! Now hold on there, DeathlokL17
@DeathlockL17QQuire 38.9% chance you are expelled within the year. 67.3% chance you first burn this entire school to the ground.
@QQuireSounds about right to me.
@JGSHeadmistressQQuire DON'T GET ANY IDEAS! DeathlokL17 I AM SERIOUS, YOU BETTER STOP!
@QQuireJGSHeadmistress DeathlokL17 I've already had them. Haven't you read my latest incident report?
@_Broodling_DeathlokL17 Would it be possible to predict the likelihood ofidie_okonkwo and myself being joined in matrimony?
@DeathlockL17KidGladiator1, Son of Gladiator, Prince of the Shi’ar. 45.4% chance you will one day fight valiantly alongside the Avengers. 46.8% chance that you will one day fight against them.
@KidGladiator1HA! I'll take it either way!
@JGSHeadmistressKidGladiator1 WATCH THAT DESK! That comes out of my salary! DeathlokL17 HEY CY-JERK!
@DeathlockL17_Broodling_, son of Brood. 22.3% chance that in the next three years you will discover a cure for cancer.
@_Broodling_Well that is rather… fascinating.
@DeathlockL1734.7% chance that during that same time, you will murder and consume at least four of your classmates.
@JGSHeadmistressDeathlokL17 That one does sound about, WAIT, KITTY REMEMBER YOU'RE A TEACHER NOW! He's wrong _Broodling_
@_Broodling_JGSHeadmistress It's all right, Ms Pryde. I'm quite confident I can suppress my biological urge to devour and impregnate my classmates.
@DeathlockL17(I can also tell you which four.)
@QQuireHa! This is great. Finally a class worth staying awake for.
@idie_okonkwo_Broodling_ That is nice for you, Broo. Perhaps people will forgive you for being a man-eating creature
@QQuireWho’s next?
@GenesisHeroJGSHeadmistress, I don't understand. Does this happen every class?
@DeathlockL17<Internal note: Lecture seems to be going quite well. Children appear to be finding it informative.>
@JGSHeadmistressOKAY, OKAY, I THINK THAT'S ABOUT ENOUGH!
@QQuireDeathlokL17 Dude, I can't believe you're friends with Wolverine! This is the best!
@DeathlockL17Next, GenesisHero...
@GenesisHeroYes?
@DeathlockL17<Tabulating possible futures... Tabulating...> <Fire in the sky... burning... this unit... disabled... dying... X-Men... bleeding...> <Conclusion: That child will kill us all.> This concludes the lecture.
@JGSHeadmistressYou got THAT, right. No more prognosticating on the death and dismemberment of the students.Thank you for coming, DeathlokL17 Don't let the door hit you...
@_Anole_Wait! Do I ever make it to BROADWAY?!!
@JGSHeadmistressI think we've had JUST about enough of class today. DISMISSED! Go to your next period, everyone!
@SANTOSRULESWHAT ABOUT MY LINE OF BODY SPRAY! I'M GOING TO BE RICH!
@KidGladiator1That was just beginning to get interesting.
@QQuireLame. Laters, suckers.
@JGSHeadmistressGet out of here, everybody. I'm off to the Headmaster's office to talk about hiring ones friends!
@JeanGreySchoolThis concludes today's LiveTweet of FUTURE HISTORY 101. Thank you all for attending!
@DeathlockL17<Internal note: remove "guest-lecturer" from official resume.>

Hahaha! I hope you guys enjoyed this as much as I did... (Note: How I understand it, all of this ties into Wolverine and the X-Men #4)

OMG. Awesome.

Posted by frozenedge

Lol I liked this. Can't believe nobody told Idie what weave is lmao and Broo is just too freaking nice for his own good

Posted by thestepfordcuckoos

Awesome. I love how in the span of the students being at the new school that Idie is been paired with Quentin, Broo, and Evan. I hope she ends up with Evan or Quentin. She could really turn either one of them and their possibly futures around. :D Also, Broo is so adorable.

I don't even read WatXM, but...

"BROOD AREN'T A RACE! THEY ARE ALIENS!"

okay, I laughed.

This seems to be something they do for the release day of each issue. This week they tweeted their field trip inside Toad's body; Idie tried to be nice to Genesis (who then tweeted for advice on how to tell someone he loves them), Glob Herman tried hanging with Quentin Quire who wanted nothing to do with his former groupie, an Toad suffered from all of their little adventures!
