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 were 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 copy of the introduction of Marvel’s mutant hero team earned a 6.0 CGC Universal Grade, with off-white pages. The central image of the five X-Men teaming up to fight Magneto has remained in beautiful condition. White backgrounds are quick to reveal imperfections, and only minor wear is visible around the perimeter. The X-Men's logo looks just as vivid as a comic released in recent days, let alone almost sixty years ago. A major first appearance like this is always in high demand and constantly increasing in value, at any grade and any price. This is an amazing piece of Marvel Comics history. The looming introduction of the X-Men in the MCU is creating a great atmosphere for this book at auction as a huge jump in value is anticipated.
