In the pantheon of modern superheroes, the X-Men have made an indelible mark. 2000's "X-Men" was the first, and arguably one of the best, of what was to become a long line of cinematic blockbusters for Marvel. With that film and all of its sequels, the Uncanny X-Men have become household names 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.
Giant-Size X-Men #1 has exploded in value thanks to the imminent inclusion of the mutant team in the MCU. The anticipation of the news has made this book, featuring the first appearance of the revamped X-Men, go through the roof like very few Bronze Age comics. When it comes to investment books on the rise, you can't go wrong with this book, and this 9.8 is one of the highest-graded copies around. We cannot recommend this issue enough, if you have the means, get a copy before it is too late.
