X-MEN GIANT SIZE (1975) #1
CGC VF+: 8.5
In the pantheon of modern superheroes, the X-Men have made their mark. 2000's X-Men was the first, and arguably one of the best, of what was to become a long line of blockbusters for Marvel. With that film and all of its sequels, the Uncanny X-Men have become a household name as Wolverine has cemented himself as one of the most popular heroes of all time. A revamping in 1975 by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum of the book's original lineup from the mid-60s, Giant Size X-Men 1 was the very first appearance of many of the characters we now associate with the movie franchise. Replacing most of the original characters while creating a multi-national team of superheroes, this issue renewed interest in the lagging title that continued through with X-Men 94 shortly after and spawned numerous X-titles all through the 80s, 90s, and the 2000s. To this day, the mutant team and all of their spin-offs continue to be amongst Marvel's best-selling books.

X-Men: Apocalypse, the latest entry into the massively successful film franchise based on the characters who first appeared in this book, is sure to drive the value of this Bronze Age classic to the next level.
