The series focuses on the emergence of a human subspecies, ''Homo superior'', 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 appearance 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.

Under a cloud of increasing anti-mutant sentiment, mutant telepath Charles Xavier creates a haven at his Westchester mansion to train young mutants to use their powers for the benefit of humanity, as well as to prove mutants can be heroes. Initially, Xavier recruited Cyclops, Iceman, Angel, Beast and Jean Grey, calling them "X-Men" as they possessed "X-tra" power with the X-Gene. Though the X-Men started off with just five members, as the years went on, many characters joined the team. Just as many left, and some returned.

The series focuses on the emergence of a human subspecies, ''Homo superior'', 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. They are believed to be humanity's next evolutionary phase and, though many mutants only wish to co-exist peacefully, some have caused great harm to the human population. Because of this, all mutants in general have been met with fear, envy, violence, hatred and discrimination by humans.

Under a cloud of increasing anti-mutant sentiment, mutant telepath Professor Charles Xavier creates a haven at his Westchester mansion to train young mutants to use their powers for the benefit of humanity, as well as to prove mutants can be heroes. Xavier recruited Cyclops, Iceman, Angel, Beast and Jean Grey, calling them "X-Men" because they possessed "extra" power with the X-Gene. Though the X-Men started off with just five members, as the years went on, many characters joined the team. Just as many left, and some returned.

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 [[AffirmativeActionLegacy was incredibly diverse]] (and [[FairForItsDay for the most part]] averting CaptainEthnic), and subsequent team makeups have kept this aspect. Since it's initial publication, the comic book has been a major allegory of civil rights, especially the American UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement.[[note]]during which it debuted[[/note]]

The ''X-Men'' comics have been adapted in other media, including animated television series, video games, and [[Film/XMen a rather successful series of films]].

Due to a massive spike in popularity in the late [[TheEighties 1980s]], the ''X-Men'' name now covers a whole franchise of different titles. These are some of the various spin-offs to be found here on TV tropes.
