The team are members of a human subspecies, ''Homo superior''[[note]]otherwise known as ''Homo sapiens superior''[[/note]], colloquially referred to as "mutants". Mutants are humans who possess the "X-gene", a gene that gives them special superpowers and unique capabilities, which normal humans lack. Believed to be humanity's next evolutionary phase, their discovery has generated massive dissension within the human population. While many mutants strive for a civil coexistence, some continue to inflict great harm and as a result, all mutants are generally met with fear, hatred, violence, envy and discrimination by the majority of humans.

humans. The comic book has been used as a major allegory of civil rights, specifically the American UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement and the LGBT Rights Movement.

Early issues introduced the team's archenemy, Magneto and his Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, who would battle the X-Men for years. Although the original team was composed entirely of [[WhiteAngloSaxonProtestant WASPs]], as was typical of the time, the All-New, All-Different team of 1975 was incredibly diverse (and for the most part averting CaptainEthnic), and subsequent team makeups have kept this aspect. Since its first publication, the comic book has been a major allegory of civil rights, specifically the American UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement.[[note]]during which it debuted[[/note]]

** [[WorldWarTwo Doctor]] [[MagnificentBastard Nemesis]] recently [[LampShadeHanging lampshades this even further]] by [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments finding new ways to non-stop insult Frost about this during an entire story, culminating in telling her that if she doesn't immediately follow his orders he will personally destroy every fetish wear store on the planet]].

...and too many more to name. Every major character has had at least one miniseries, usually several. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_X-Men_comics See what]] TheOtherWiki has to say about it.

** To be a bit more specific; Mystique joined the X-Men and left, Sabretooth joined the X-Men and left, Juggernaut joined the X-Men and left, Magneto joined the X-Men, left, and ''joined again'', Sebastian Shaw joined Hope's Lights and left... Really, about the only three [[HeelFaceTurn Heel Face Turns]] to have stuck are Rogue, Tessa/Sage, (who turned out to be GoodAllAlong) and Emma Frost ([[YesExceptNo except Emma Frost]]). Every other villain that's joined eventually just stabs the group in the back. (Either that, or they just up and leave.) Oh, and lest we forget; Lady Mastermind joined the X-Men and left...

* MemoryJar: The Shi'ar gave Jean's family a crystal ball full of their and other people's memories of Jean after she saved the universe, but before ComicBook/{{the Dark Phoenix Saga}}.

* GenreSavvy: Anole. When Elixir tells him that he has to learn human anatomy to make his powers more effective, Anole just points out that the X-Men always have knowledge like that dumped into their heads telepathically. Also, when interrogated by O*N*E to reveal the location of his friends, he simply goes over a list of all the unlikely places the X-Men and New Mutants have gone. Predictably, they don't believe him.

* ''ComicBook/AstonishingXMen'', started by Creator/JossWhedon and John Cassaday to critical acclaim. It initially featured Cyclops, Emma Frost, Wolverine, Beast, Shadowcat, and the resurrected Colossus as the core team, later replaced by Storm and newcomer Hisako Ichiki (AKA: Armor). Since then, the volume has been written by different writers (such as WarrenEllis, Greg Pak, Marjorie Liu, and Charles Soule) with different teams and story arcs, one of the most famous being Northstar marrying his boyfriend.
