The X-Men are a team of mutant superheroes in the Marvel Universe. They were created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby, and first appeared in The X-Men #1 (September 1963). The basic concept of the X-Men is that under a cloud of increasing anti-mutant sentiment, Professor Xavier created a haven at his Westchester mansion to train young mutants to use their powers for the benefit of humanity, and to prove mutants can be heroes.
[close] 200 years ago, our ancestors lived in peace with the average human being in peace and harmony. Now, though, the humans have rebeled against our assistance in their own existence. They have grabbed and destroyed many of us, causing us to slip back into the darkness from which we crawled out of in hope. Life, as Mutants know it, is dark and limited. Now, though...humans are endanger once again. Not from Mutants, but from the new alien force about to crush their struggling population. Will you help or not?
