DESCRIPTION
ow/white pgs
Jack Kirby cvr/art; origin and 1st app. X-Men; 1st app. Magneto
Stan Lee once explained that his original title for this series was "The Mutants" but publisher Martin Goodman didn't like the sound of it. Lee, in a stroke of genius, named the newly formed group after its founder, Professor X, and thus the X-Men was born. They were a motley band of outcasts, hated and feared by the human world. The title was almost canceled due to lagging sales but was reborn with a new cast of characters in the 70s which went on to make them a perennial favorite ever since. Everybody can relate to what it is like being an outsider, and that is what draws us to the X-Men. With a staggering number of comic spin-offs, blockbuster movies, and a variety of TV shows and cartoons, the popularity of this first issue has proven to be a strong investment in the marketplace.


This is a bright and bold, well-preserved copy of X-Men #1, that presents a clean light background, vivid reds and yellows, and some cool greys and blues as well. Always a popular book at auction the first entry into the historic run of this title is a bona fide classic key of Marvel’s Silver Age. Although the title took some time to get its footing, the rebirth of the team in 1975 helped save a floundering franchise and place the X-Men in the elite echelons of Marvel’s stable of characters. The book is in excellent condition, with only the slightest of wear around the edges. With the imminent reboot of the X-Men movie franchise in the MCU, this book is a great investment opportunity.

Overstreet Guide 2020 VF+ (8.5) value = $26,600
