Title: X-Men: New Class Author: Ambaryerno Rating: T Genre: Sci Fi/Drama Status: Work in Progress Fandom: X-Men Movieverse Pairings: N/A Summary: Set in the Earth-10005 Universe, a new class of students arrives at the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters. Inspired by Agents of SHIELD, X-Men: New Class loosely adapts Kyle and Yost's New X-Men as a hypothetical live-action television series. (Note: This story only accounts for up to X-Men: Days of Future Past, and will not be updated for Apocalypse) Link: Here I've been following this for awhile and have enjoyed it enough I think it should be considered for the library. A bit of background, my knowledge of the X-Men comes from the X-Men Evolution cartoon and the films along with general osmosis and that was more than enough context for the story. As the author states the story can be described as the novelization of a TV series following the events of the comic series New X-Men in the X-Men movie universe. The focus is on the students and their interactions as beyond the Xavier Institute anti-mutant forces rise. It mixes some slice of life with an overarching plot even as the various students grow and change. I'm not sure how closely it follows the X-Men story its based on, author notes imply there's some divergences, but as a non-comics reader it was entirely new. Each chapter is an episode and at the time of this review its midway through its "Second Season" at 21 chapters and 340,000 words. The author has been pretty good at updating at the start of each month, I believe it's worth your time to check it out. 5/5 for me.
