The X-Men are a team of mutant superheroes in the Marvel Universe . They were created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby , and first appeared in The X-Men #1 (September 1963). The basic concept of the X-Men is that under a cloud of increasing anti- mutant sentiment, Professor Xavier created a haven at his Westchester mansion to train young mutants to use their powers for the benefit of humanity, and to prove mutants can be heroes.
