The X-Men were created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby during a time of turmoil. As the Civil Rights Movement loomed over America, comic book readers were instantly drawn to Marvel's now-famous mutants. This favorite superhero team reflected not only current events but also people's fears and wants. Fast forward over 50 years, the X-Men now resonate in popular culture once again. Comics, film, and television have always been mediums for entertainment, but also a source of comfort, and X-Men fans can attest to that power through the experiences of the stories. Jessica Tseang (comic book historian, AMC's Secret History of Comics) discusses with Eric Lewald (creator of X-Men: The Animated Series), Julia Lewald (writer, X-Men: The Animated Series), and other Marvel industry veterans/talents, pop culture critics, and comic historians, on what the X-Men mean to them. There will be a time of reflection for Stan Lee.
