The 2013 run of X-Men, written by Brian Wood with art by Olivier Coipel, centered on the superhero team’s women, with a cover featuring the characters of Storm, Rogue, Psylocke, Kitty Pryde, Rachel Grey and Jubilee.
Marvel Comics’ X-Men were introduced by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby in 1963. The story follows a group of mutants born with superpowers led by wheelchair using telepath Professor Charles Xavier. Facing fear and prejudice for their differences, the comic has been used an allegory for topics related to race, gender and sexual identity. The X-Men first ran from 1963-1970, being reintroduced in 1975.
The X-Men have become one of Marvel’s most notable franchises, introducing many of the company’s most popular characters and many spin-off titles as well as movies, television programs, video games and other merchandise.
