Welcome to the X-Men! Hope you survive the experience!
The X-Men are a fictional superhero team featured in comic books published by Marvel Comics. The group was created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby and introduced in the first issue of the ongoing comic series Uncanny X-Men. Though it took them quite a number of years to earn their place in pop-culture history, the X-Men have developed an enormous fan base over the years and have yielded a successful multimedia franchise which includes dozens of spin-off titles, several animated programs, a feature film franchise as well as video games, novels, toys and apparel.
During the early 1990s, the X-Men roster had grown quite large, and a bit unmanageable. As such, the group was divided into two separate teams: The Blue team was led by Scott Summers and the Gold team was led by Ororo Munroe. Both teams made their first appearance in X-Men, Volume 2 #1.
