    Volume 2 - 1st printing. Collects Uncanny X-Men (1963-2011 1st Series) #11-21.

    Written by Stan Lee and Roy Thomas. Art by Jack Kirby, Werner Roth, and Alex Toth.

    Launched by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the X-Men blended super-hero action, teen angst, and a metaphor for the turbulent social and racial issues of the '60s into one potent package! After laying the foundation for what would become comics' biggest franchise, Stan and Jack passed the headmaster's role of the Xavier School to Roy Thomas and Werner Roth, who would come into their own while crafting the tales of Marvel's merry mutants. Collected in this second amazing MASTERWORKS volume, you'll find the first appearance of the unstoppable Juggernaut, the cosmic Stranger, the mutant Mimic, and in a classic three-part saga, the mutant-hunting robot Sentinels. And for good measure we're topping it off with the return of Magneto and his Brotherhood of Evil mutants and a two-part tale featuring Lucifer, the early nemesis of Professor X. They're mutant milestones one and all!

    Softcover, 240 pages, full color. Cover price $24.99.

    Written by ROY THOMAS. Art by WERNER ROTH and JACK SPARLING. Cover by WERNER ROTH.

    Join the original X-Men - Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast, Angel and Iceman - in these early adventures from the days when Marvel's Merry Mutants were more the quirkiest quintet in comics than the worldwide wunderkinds they are today. Across ten issues, you'll see the X-Men confronted by a host of villains weird and varied - from Count Nefaria and his horde of henchmen to the Locust and the Aztec-inspired Kukulcán. You'll also witness the first appearance of X-Men mainstay Banshee and read the rare stories when a sixth mutant member, the Mimic, joined Professor X's squad. Also featured are the beginnings of the long-ranging Factor Three saga, and the classic battle between Mimic and the Super-Adaptoid - and all are painstakingly restored to offer the best presentation of these Marvel classics!

Also featured are the "Origins of the X-Men" backup strips revealing the beginnings of Professor X and his teen mutant team supreme! And we're not afraid to go out with a bang. That's right: On top of the X-Men's cool new costumes, in our heart-wrenching conclusion the brutal beast Grotesk kills Professor X before the eyes of Cyclops and his teammates!

    Buckle down your mortarboards, students of Marvel's merry mutants, 'cause we've got a summer crash course in X-Men classics coming your way! Lesson #1: It ain't easy being an X-Man. No sooner has their mentor, Professor X, died than who shows up but Magneto and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants! Only a study in teamwork with Earth's Mightiest Heroes can help our grieving heroes make the grade! Lesson #2: Think twice before inviting family over. A friendly house call from the Juggernaut or Polaris, the daughter of Magneto himself, isn't the summertime bliss the brochure may have described! Lesson #3: Battling a bevy of baddies including Mesmero, Blastaar, the Red Raven, Warlock and Computo may cause cramps. Be sure to stretch before jumping into this pool!

    And for extra credit you can pull an all-nighter with the origins of Iceman and Beast, along with a rare solo story featuring the Angel! Consult guest instructors Jim Steranko, Barry Smith and John Buscema this July or risk failure at the end of the term. Dismissed!

    Written by ROY THOMAS, ARNOLD DRAKE, DENNIS O'NEIL and LINDA FITE. Art by NEAL ADAMS, DON HECK, WERNER ROTH and SAL BUSCEMA. Cover by Neal Adams.

    1969: The X-Men, Marvel's poorest-selling title, was in dire need of a shot in the arm. Enter Roy Thomas and Neal Adams, and readers witnessed one of the most amazing evolutions in Marvel history! These two titanic talents threw caution to the wind with sensational stories that brought the X-Men in synch with the thriving youth culture of the late '60s. Adams' lavish and dynamic visuals merged with Thomas' challenging and contemporary stories to create a comic-book series that throbbed with the pulse of the times like none other.

    Thrill to the introduction of mutant mainstay Havok, the vampiric villain Sauron, the Mutates and Sunfire; battles against the Living Pharaoh and the Sentinels, a classic team-up with Ka-Zar in the Savage Land, and the return of Magneto and Professor X!
