In the world of X-Men, Homo Sapiens live with a growing fear of so-called Homo Superior, "mutants" who look just like "normal" people but possess super-human abilities. Professor Charles Francis Xavier, a child of privilege and wealth, is a telepath whose mind can do things his crippled body cannot. His School for Gifted Students secretly teaches the next stage to use their evolved abilities in pursuit of Xavier's "dream" of peaceful coexistence. Holocaust survivor Eric Lensherr, aka Magneto, possessing magnetic control powers, believes that humans will, like Hitler before, attempt to exterminate them. The actions of the U.S. Congress, spurred by Senator Robert Kelly, lead him to believe that a war is inevitable. These investigations will bring Xavier's student "X-Men" into conflict with Lensherr's "Brotherhood." Neither Xavier nor Lensherr nor Kelly will survive . . .  undamaged.

Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created the X-Men. Len Wein and Dave Cockrum reconfigured the group. Chris Claremont, with Cockrum and then John Byrne (to start) kicked this band of superpowered misfits into the superhero stratosphere. With 37 years of history reconfigured for the big screen, join us, Executive Producer Tom DeSanto and the cast of X-Men, as we take you through the X-Universe, with material for all.
