All X-Men Ever Header

Can you name every X-Men character ever introduced? Marvel’s superhero group of mutant outcasts was first published by the comic book giant in 1963. The main X-Men team would often be led by Professor Xavier, with many incarnations of the team — as well as a copious amount of characters — being introduced over the books’ 50 plus year run.

With such a large multitude of heroes gracing the pages for half a century, it would be understandable to lose track of every mutant who’d ever donned an X-Men costume. Well, IGN has put together an impressive infographic timeline that claims to have a definitive list. Check out the video “Every X-Man Ever” below and let us know if others should be added to the list!

Stan Lee

Stan Lee, who almost singlehandedly (along with illustrators Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko) turned the fortunes of Marvel Comics around with his colorful and lucrative comic character creations, such as Spider-Man, The Hulk, The Fantastic Four, The X-Men, Iron Man, and Thor, and started a revolution in print and eventually television and film media which helped make him and the comic book industry a somewhat credible, facile establishment, with annual earnings reaching untold BILLIONS, turns 90 years old today!

Born in the Upper West Side of Manhattan in 1922 as Stanley Lieber, and growing up in poor squalor type surroundings during The Great Depression of the 1930s, Lee found his solace in plenty of books and cinema of that period, in particular the exploits of the characters made famous by old school actor Errol Flynn, best remembered for his portrayal of swashbucklers and Robin Hood. It led to Lee’s writing pastime, which then led to small time gigs where he wrote obits and press releases.

Jack Kirby Collage

Today marks the birthday of one of the greatest, most influential, and innovative comic book artists of all time, the late Jack Kirby, responsible for creating and co-creating some of comicdom’s most well known and gold standard characters in the history of the genre – Captain America, The Hulk, The Fantastic Four, and The X-Men, to name a few.

The New York Times, who had written about Kirby 10 years after his death on February 1994, by which time he had amassed a portfolio of work almost tantamount to the works of Picasso or Michelangelo in his respective field, summed up the style of the man’s art this way:

Avengers vs X-Men #0 Cover Banner

In March, Marvel Comics will be releasing Avengers vs. X-Men #0 from the creative team of Brian Michael Bendis, Jason Aaron, and Frank Cho. This prelude issue is meant to set up the coming war of heroes and for better or for worse appears to be focused on Wanda Maximoff aka The Scarlet Witch and Hope Summers. The Scarlet Witch is one of those great classic Marvel characters that has been totally destroyed in the last ten years and ends up being a writing crutch for Marvel creators. It would be cool if this storyline is what rescues the character and makes her cool again. I wouldn’t count on it though.

At any rate, here’s the cover for issue #0 of what will hopefully be an entertaining 12-issue war of heroes.
