    1st printing. By Danny Fingenoth. Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's creation of the X-Men continued the success of the Marvel approach to superheroes: the X-Men are complex characters with complex relationships to which a broad readership could relate. The creation of this team of superheroes was also a response to shifts in family life as well as social and political revolutions: from the rise of divorce in America to the Civil Rights Movement. Moreover, experiences to which anyone could relate were also intricate to the popularity of the X-Men: For example, feelings of exclusion and wanting to be recognized as special and unique among peers. This celebration of the X-Men includes the story behind key X-Men members, enemies, and the writers and artists who brought them to life, as well as the influence the X-Men continues to have on the entertainment industry. Hardcover, 50 pages, 7 3/4-in. x 9 1/4-in., text with full color illustrations and photos. Cover price $21.99.
