The Marvel X-Men comic books are an American comic strip team of a revolving cast of mutants born with superhuman abilities. The team, which was created in 1963 by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby, became one of the most successful Marvel Comics properties. With Marvel’s collaboration with Penguin Classics, the publication of special editions of Black Panther, Captain America, and The Amazing Spider-Man comic books came to pass. This is a collection of the original stories and pivotal tales of prominent Marvel characters which serve as evidence of Marvel's revolutionary influence on graphic novels, icons, and storylines across popular culture.
The Marvel X-Men comic books feature Wolverine, a brooding antihero who quickly became one of Marvel's most recognizable heroes; Storm, a mutant whose weather-control powers had led to her being worshiped as a goddess; Colossus, a mutant with incredible strength and organic steel skin; Nightcrawler, a blue-skinned mutant with the power to teleport.
The Marvel X-Men comic books have captivated fans for decades with a vast universe of storytelling, visual creativity, ideas, and social criticism. This is why readers return year after year to the X-Men stories, whose characters are now as ingrained in our culture as folk heroes from older literary traditions. We are thrilled to present Marvel's comic books, which will place the classic work of Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby, and many more legendary Marvel creators.
