The X-Men are a team of mutant superheroes in the Marvel Universe. They were created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby, and first appeared in The X-Men #1 (September 1963). The basic concept of the X-Men is that under a cloud of increasing anti-mutant sentiment, Professor Xavier created a haven at his Westchester mansion to train young mutants to use their powers for the benefit of humanity, and to prove mutants can be heroes.

[close] Society is in turmoil. Mutants and humans constantly clash, blaming each other for the world's mishaps and problems. There are the good mutants, ones who are passive, and treat humans equally. Then there are the bad mutants, the one who have turned on the humans. It's a constant sneaky war, with nobody able to get along with each other. No where is safe, with a group of humans called the Elites hunting mutants down. One by one, mutants are kidnapped, captured, tortured, killed. Their aim is to wipe out the threatening species, before they suffer in the hands of the mutants that have turned. Wether on the run or in the comfort of your own home, you receive a cream colored envelope with your name written neatly in someone's cursive. There is no return address and a purple sticker seal with a bold M. You rip open the letter, to find that there is a single sheet of paper with a short message. Dear Mutant, There’s more of us than you think. All around you. They could be your friends, your relatives, and even your classmates. The reason they're keeping it a secret you ask? It's just the same reason as you. The human world has become so harsh on us, treating us like lab rats or freaks. Soon enough, they'll decide to wipe us out because they think we're too dangerous. It makes the world unsafe for us to remain in hiding, so I'm inviting you to a safe haven for people just like you. You won't be alone at this school, where we offer safety and kindness to young mutants that are seeking help. If you want to be protected, join us here and finally be accepted for who you are. Sincerely, Headmaster Lake City, Colorado 215 Maplewood St. 85043 Check this link for the full plot! https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1899242-g

[close] Marie Lu the author of the Legend series, is making a new YA book series coming out in October 2014. Here is what the book is about.. Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites. Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all. Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen. Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her. (No Copyright intended) It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt So my name, Adelina, is the name of the main character in The Young Elites, so I wanted to make this group! Me and My sister Cateyln love Marie Lu and love Legend so much we cant wait for this new series!!!
