Test Your X-Men Knowledge: Can You Name These Team Members?
Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby back in 1963, the X-Men are one of Marvel’s most important creations, and one of their most archetypical: a team of superheroes, born with powers they don’t understand, fighting to protect a world that rejects and fears them. The initial team roster – Iceman, Angel, Beast, Cyclops, Jean Grey, and their leader ,Professor X – have been immortalized. The X-Men lines of comics dominated the ’80s and ’90s, and introduced some of the most popular superheroes the world has ever known.
But how well do you really know these heroic mutants? There’ve been dozens of people to join the core X-Men team, and not all of them can be as beloved as Wolverine. Do you know them all by name? Can you tell your Storms from your Havoks? Your Angels from your Beasts? Your technomancers from your bodiless brains? Well, those are easy. Let’s see if you can nail the hard ones.
