Where did the mutant team begin?

September 1963 saw their origin and first appearance in X-Men #1. A world record was set for a copy of this comic book in 2012!

X-Men #1 Sets World Record

X-Men comics #1: Origin and First Appearance of the X-Men. A CGC 9.8 sold for a record $492,000 in 2012.

There are plenty of copies of X-Men #1 available on the market. It is far from a rare comic book.

But in great condition, its value has rocketed. It's approaching $30,000 in 9.0 shape, and the prices get higher from there.

X-Men #2 Prices

X-Men comic #2: First appearance of The Vanisher, and a collectible comic

1st Appearance of the Vanisher

Record sale: $46,000
Minimum value: $50

X-Men #2 saw a new villain appear, The Vanisher. Apart from that, it's always nice to have the early issues of any series.

You will not struggle to find a new owner for your copy, especially if it's in fine or better condition.

X-Men Comic #3 Value

X-Men #3: First appearance of The Blob

1st Appearance of the Blob

Record sale: $35,000
Minimum value: $50

Click to see values | Have yours appraised

Another difficult issue to find in fine shape because of its all-white cover.

X-Men #3 saw another new villain appear, The Blob. It's worth dramatically less than #1 or #2.

Still, it's a nice find it you happen to have one in top shape.

X-Men Comics #4 Value

X-Men #4: first Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, second Magneto

1st Appearance of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants;
1st Appearance of Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch

Record sale: $26,000
Minimum value: $100

Click to see values | Have yours appraised

X-Men #4 sees the second appearance of the dreaded Magneto, and the first appearance of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.

More importantly, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch appear here for the first time. They would go on to play major roles in the Marvel universe.

X-Men #5 Value

X-Men #5 is a nice comic book to find

Record sale: $10,700
Minimum value: $20

Click to see values | Have yours appraised

It's pretty rare to find any early X-Men comics in really high grade, but #5, with its dark blue cover, shows damage a lot more than most.

X-Men #5 may not be a stand-out in the history of the super-team, but it's worth decent money, especially if you find one in 9.0 shape or better.

Value of X-Men Comics #6 - #20

There are a couple of later comics from the X-Men that are more collectible than the following, but while we're covering the earlier issues, it makes sense to list them all here.

Most later X-Men issues are fairly run-of-the-mill, but X-Men #35 is worth mentioning.

Spider-Man is the most collected comic book character in the world, and anytime he appears in another popular series as a crossover, especially on the cover, it boosts the value of that edition.

Most Valuable Later X-Men Issues

In common with most vintage comic book series, after #20 the value of X-Men issues falls of sharply.

Let's be clear. Anything in top comic grades is worth serious money: certainly hundreds, and occasionally a couple of thousand, dollars.

However, there are two 1970s X-Men comics that are worth much more than the issues around them.

Giant-Size X-Men #1: First New Team

Giant Size X-Men #1: second appearance Wolverine, first appearance new X-Men team

In the summer of 1975, Marvel Comics relaunched the X-Men in a comic that would become one of the most collectible comics ever published after 1970.

Giant-Size X-Men #1 introduced Colossus, Nightcrawler, Thunderbird, Storm and Banshee to the X-Men. After a successful debut in Incredible Hulk #181 (see below), Wolverine also joined the team.

X-Men #94: Second Appearance All-New Team

X-Men #94: origin and first appearance of the New X-Men team

After years of relative decline in their popularity, the X-Men team was relaunched with an all-new lineup in X-Men #94.

August 1975 saw Colossus, Nightcrawler, Thunderbird, Storm, Wolverine and Banshee join the X-Men, while Zngel, Marvel Girl and Iceman left the team.

Incredible Hulk #181: First Wolverine

Incredible Hulk #181 is a milestone comic.

Although it's not an actual X-Men comic, the first appearance of the hugely important character, Wolverine, has to be mentioned here.

He later joined the X-Men, first in Giant-Size X-Men #1, and then in X-Men #94. See above for prices on those two important bronze age comics.
