How This 'X-Men' Issue Changed Marvel Forever

Get ready for 'House of X' and 'Powers of X' with this short documentary about 'Giant-Size X-Men' #1!

80

With only two months until highly-anticipated series HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X herald a new era for the X-Men, fans can now learn more about the seminal moments that shaped X-Men history with a brand-new documentary short series, X-Men: The Seminal Moments!

Today, the first episode looks back at 1975's GIANT-SIZE X-MEN #1

An issue that signaled a new beginning for so much of what Marvelites know and love about the X-Men today, GIANT-SIZE X-MEN #1 revived the mutants for a new era and imbued them with a fresh, different spirit. After the early success of UNCANNY X-MEN had started to fade in the early '70s, creators Len Wein, Dave Cockrum, and Glynis Oliver united to craft a story tailored for a changing audience and world. In short, this introductory issue established new status quos, debuted new characters, and set the Children of the Atom on the road to immortality.
