X-Men to Re-Launch as All Female Team

I’ve been a fan of X-Men for as long as I can remember.

I actually own a copy of this iconic X-Men#1 from 1991. Wonder how much it is worth?

So it is interesting that the latest re-launch/re-boot/instalment of the franchise has decided to take a different approach – an all-female superhero team!

Interesting to see how culture has evolved in ten years. We’ve gone from bulging hypermasculine figures to placing a renewed emphasis on the female gender. Let’s see how this one turns out. For more, check out this Wired article.

    LOL…hmm..interesting. I also have copies of the 1991 X-Men #1…all 4 or 5 covers (that make one panoramic picture when put together :P) It’s not worth much these days, last time I checked it was worth around, $10 or less 😦 Gotta wait another 50 years probably lol. Oh well….

      All 5 covers – that is awesome. I almost forgot that they can be put together as a complete picture. But those were really iconic covers, weren’t they!
