The original 1963 X-Men comic book series took a decidedly different turn in 1975. Beginning with X-Men #94, a restructuring of the mutant super-hero team got under way. This pivotal story was continued in Giant-Size X-Men #1, which introduced a new X-Men team made up of an international cast of characters. Under the guidance of the lone hold-over Cyclops, this new ground-breaking team consisted of Canadian Wolverine, Russian Colossus, Kenyan-American woman Storm, German Nightcrawler, Native American Thunderbird, Irish Catholic Banshee and Sunfire from Japan. This diverse line-up broke the white Anglo-Saxon mold of the original team and opened the floodgates for the many new characters to come, that kept the series always vital throughout its lengthy history.


Along with X-Men #94, the 1975 Giant-Size X-Men #1 issue holds an important spot on the "Top 20 Bronze Age Comics" list. Get your hands on a prime example of this major key issue with this GCG  graded (9.6) book. This superior grade designation sees this nicely preserved comic ranked as "1/344" at the 9.6 level, with "171" better at 9.8 on the CGC Census, out of a total Universal Grade population of "7,830", putting it well within the top 10% of all graded copies. Grading label notations include "Off-white Pages; First appearance of the new X-Men. First appearance of Nightcrawler, Colossus, Stom and Thunderbird"; Len Wein story, Dave Cockrum art, Gil Kane cover".
