X-Men

     The X-Men are a team of mutant superheroes created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby who first appeared in the comic book The X-Men #1 released in September of 1963.  They are led by Professor Xavier who recruits mutants in order to give them a safe haven, and to train them how to use their unique abilities for the benefit of humanity.  Lee and Kirby's characters have lived on throughout the decades spawning many comics, television shows, and movies.

  2. Lots of X-men postings! I've never watched the series but found reading about it makes me want to.

    1. X was hard. I tried to think of something else but ended up falling back on The X-Men.
