And yet there was literally a comic across the aisle called "Generation X".
An ethnically diverse cast with a large number of females compared to teams of the past. A tortured boy without a face. A tortured girl who can't speak. An autistic girl. More of that teen angst.
Looking back at the covers, I hated the fonts and stuff they used on the covers in the 90s at Marvel. This was the decade when artists discovered Photoshop or Illustrator and they just went for it. I liked Bachalo's artwork but any time someone else filled in on the title they couldn't make his characters work.
