X-Men (2nd Series)

 XME2   (Marvel, 1991-2001, 2004-2008)

™ and ©1991 Marvel Entertainment Group
Series becomes New X-Men with issue #114, returns as X-Men (2nd Series) with issue #157, Series becomes X-Men: Legacy with issue #208

In 1991, Marvel launched a “mutant genesis,” completely transforming its many mutant super-hero groups. The New Mutants would become X-Force, And the Uncanny X-Men would split into two teams, each featured in its own title.

This second X-Men series stars the new team consisting of Cyclops, Wolverine, Gambit, Psylocke, Rogue, and the Beast. Although the other X-Men still appear regularly, Marvel’s idea was to concentrate this title on a smaller team in order to better craft the storylines. With early issues drawn and plotted by the legendary Jim Lee, this series makes that idea come alive.

Issue #1 of this “adjectiveless” X-Men title was launched in a storm of publicity and sported five different covers. Taken together, it sold in excess of seven million copies, making it the best-selling comic of all time.
