    Description

    X-Men #1 (Marvel, 1963) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white pages. A wonderful copy of the comic book that launched one of Marvel's most lucrative trademarks. This key issue features the origin and first appearance of the X-Men (Angel, Beast, Cyclops, Iceman, and Marvel Girl), as well as the first appearances of their mentor Professor X and arch-nemesis Magneto, all with cover and interior art by Jack Kirby.
    In the 50 years since this issue hit the stands, it's launched dozens of popular characters, spawned countless spin-off titles, and generated toys, animated series, features films and more -- a degree of popularity that is ironic given that sales of the comic initially lagged far behind other Marvel titles to the extent that it went into reprints for a few years before being revived with a new cast of characters in the 1970s.
    An iconic comic book, this issue currently ranks as #8 on Overstreet's list of Top 50 Silver Age Comics. Overstreet 2015 NM- 9.2 value = $44,000. CGC census 11/15: 15 in 9.2, 17 higher.
