Highest GradedIn 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 marked a seismic shift in comics, reinvigorating a failed title into a household name and pop-culture sensation. This copy earned a fantastic 9.8 Universal Grade from CGC, with off-white to white pages. The clean white pages are the perfect complement to the classic cover, whose background is immaculate, which highlights the sharp logos and cover copy, as well as the iconic Gil Kane/Dave Cockrum renditions of both the new and old X-Men. The first appearances of Storm, Nightcrawler, Colossus, and Thunderbird, have never looked better than they do here. All X-Men keys have been selling like hotcakes recently, with confirmation that the X-Men will be joining the MCU soon. These characters have already appeared in countless movies, cartoons, and video games, and will only become even more popular once they're part of the highest-grossing movie franchise of all time.
