    Description

    X-Men #1 (Marvel, 1963) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. The X-Men are the most popular superhero group around, and here's one of the nicest copies you'll find of the group's first appearance. The X-Men were so named because of their "X-tra power," and this issue introduces the super-powered teens: there's the winged Angel, the ultra-agile Beast, the eye-beam-shooting Cyclops (who in a typical Stan Lee twist, didn't want his powers), frosty Iceman, and the telekinetic Marvel Girl. Also making their debuts here were the group's mind-reading mentor Professor X and the mutants' most important foe, Magneto, all with impressive visuals by Jack Kirby. The fact that Iceman's role in the movies seems to be expanding, and that the second film even offered a very brief glimpse of the Beast, could make the first appearances of these characters even more valuable in years to come. As it stands, this issue is on Overstreet's list of the top ten Silver Age books. An unrestored NM- copy of this key book is quite a catch indeed. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $13,000. CGC census 6/05: 12 in 9.2, 6 higher.
