I have no idea where option E came from, then again I'm on pain killers for broken ribs, so who knows.....

I loved Generation X. It was very different from the status quo of the X-Men books

Academy X/New X-men is one of my favorite X-books ever so it definitely gets my vote

Anyone who votes WaTXM is clearly insane.

I have a fondness for all of them, really, but I'm going with New X-men mostly because it seemed to actually have the most to do with them being mutants, which, for me, is half the premise of any of these books.

Generation X started out on pretty firm ground in this regard, probably even more so than the X-men at the time, but by the time Age of Apocalypse was over, it too had become mainly just another teen superhero book.

As for Wolverine and the X-men, I think it may still be too soon to say, but it's becoming too late for me to care. I do like a lot about this book, but it's really missing the mark in terms of focus, especially in regards to the students. It's kinda just all over the place.

I think E should just be Academy X, as New X-Men and Academy X are clearly different in terms of story-telling and direction. So, yeah. Academy X.

In reality there is NO real comparison other than that they were "young!" New Mutants was the first teenage team to introduce the concept to the X-Men universe that greatly impacted the Marvel universe, Generation X brought the kids into a more school setting but still choosing to learn out in the field, and New X-Men brought a more modern and more grand approach to the school idea incorporating new concepts, amazing and likable new characters, and great stories! So each were like a step up from the other! Wolverine and the X-Men shouldn't even be considered here since it barely sheds light upon any X-students, instead it's all about the teachers whereupon New X-Men was less about the teachers and more about the students! So Wolverine and the X-Men is actually a step down from New X-Men!

Most of my favorite characters have spawned from those teams/series, like: Dani Moonstar, Wolfsbane, Chamber, Husk, M, Mercury, Dust, Anole, Pixie, Rockslide, etc...

NOT with Wolverine and the X-Men, however, with their "oh-so-transparent-characters!"

I have no favourite. But I do like Wolverine and the X-Men, and nope -- not insane. Yet.
