Over 50 years ago, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby teamed up to create what would go on to become the most popular team of superheroes ever; X-Men. Now thanks to the team over at IGN, we get a detailed account of what’s gone down within the world of heroic mutants over the past few decades.
During its debut in 1963, the original X-Men consisted of members like Professor X, Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast, Angel and Iceman among others. Through the years though, we’ve seen countless new additions and even members switching sides (like the multiple times Wolverine has been pitted against his friends). There was even a period of time from 1970 to 1975 when Marvel stopped publishing new X-Men stories altogether. Of course the crew rejoined forces, and have gone on to become pop culture icons since. The 11-minute video one is a must watch for all comic book fans out there.
