Jack Kirby cover & art; origin and 1st app X-Men; 1st app Magneto; Comic Book Impact rating of 10 (CBI)The first appearances of the original X-Men—including Professor X, Cyclops, Angel, Beast, Iceman, and Marvel Girl, as well as evil mutant Magneto—are all featured in this classic Stan Lee and Jack Kirby comic. A new crew of mutants would revive the title in the ’70s, but this vital debut introduces most of the core characters that would launch the big-screen superhero trend of the 21st century.
In addition to that hit film franchise, these teen outcasts would star in a staggering number of comic spin-offs, plus a variety of live-action TV shows and cartoons. There’s even more interest in the title today as Marvel Studios takes over the beloved characters once owned by Fox, strongly suggesting the investment value of this perpetually hot issue will only continue to grow.
