The X-Men were created by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee, first appearing in The X-Men #1 in 1963. The series was cancelled and went to reprint only in 1970. It was revived and relaunched by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum in 1975 with a new international team at the request of Marvel's Sales division who wanted an international superhero team to sell to other territories. Under writer Chris Claremont, and artists John Byrne, Paul Smith, John Romita Jr, Alan Davis, Marc Silvestri, Rob Liefeld and Jim Lee, Uncanny X-Men became one of the most recognizable and successful franchises of Marvel Comics, spinning off cartoons, toy lines, games and both live-action TV shows and movies.
Current Marvel Unlimited Annual or Annual Plus members have already received an email with details on how to register for the event. Marvel Unlimited is an online service by Marvel Comics that distributes past issues of their comics online, usually with a three-month delay from publishing in print, but also publishing new series, exclusively for the app, as part of their Infinity Comics webtoon vertical comic book line.
