Funko has revealed a new line of Classic X-Men collectibles. The Classic X-Men are represented across several different product lines, including Pop!, Dorbz, and Mystery Minis.

The new Classic X-Men Pop! Line “features several prominent, awesome mutants! Cable, an Alpha-level mutant capable of telepathy and telekinesis, is joined by his teammate Archangel, whose enormous wings grant him the power of flight! Also featured are the super-fast Quicksilver, telekinetic Psylocke, razor-sharp Sabretooth, and impressively powerful Storm! Pop! Vinyl figures measure approximately 3 3/4-inches tall and come packaged in a window display box.”

In the city of Winzeldorf, Germany, the normally quiet town erupts in the clamor of an angry mob. They are in search of the "monster", Kurt Wagner. They storm the village and try to capture Kurt. They even begin to burn the village to try and bring him out. Rather than have the city burn, Kurt leaps into the crowd and they overtake him. Suddenly, a voice commands them to "Stop!", and the crowd does. Kurt is greeted by Charles Xavier, who then offers Kurt a place at his school for mutants. Kurt Wagner agrees as long as he is made whole again.

Later, in Quebec, Canada, another mutant enters a secret government agency. The mutant is none other than agent, "Weapon X", better known as Wolverine. Charles Xavier meets with him and Major Chasen. After speaking of Wolverine's past run in with the Hulk [1] , Charles then offers Wolverine a chance as a free agent and to no longer be tied down to the rules of the government. Major Chasen tries to object, but Wolverine slices off his ties and immediately resigns from his duties. He then walks out with Charles.

Afterword, Professor X meets with the Banshee in the Grand Ole Opry. He says he has to talk to Banshee and they talk later in his quarters. The Banshee announces that he is going to accept his offer since he is needing to get on the straight and narrow. Then, in Kenya, villagers cry out to the storm goddess, Ororo for rain. She appears and gives them what they wish. During the downpour, Charles Xavier arrives and announces an offer he hopes she will not refuse. After listening to his request, she accepts. In Osaka, Japan, he is also given an acceptance by Sunfire.

The X-Men are a fictional team of superheroes appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics . Created by writer Stan Lee and artist/co-writer Jack Kirby , the characters first appeared in The X-Men #1 (September 1963). They are among the most recognizable and successful intellectual properties of Marvel Comics, appearing in numerous books, television shows , films , and video games .

Professor X is the founder of Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters at a location commonly called the X-Mansion , which recruits mutants from around the world. Located in Salem Center in Westchester County, New York , the X-Mansion is the home and training site of the X-Men. The founding five members of the X-Men who appear in The X-Men #1 (September 1963) are Angel ( Archangel ), Beast , Cyclops , Iceman , and Marvel Girl ( Jean Grey ); Professor X and Magneto also made their first appearances in The X-Men #1. Since then, dozens of mutants from various countries and diverse backgrounds have held membership as X-Men.

In 1963, with the success of Spider-Man in Amazing Fantasy , as well as the Hulk , Thor , Iron Man , and the Fantastic Four , co-creator Stan Lee wanted to create another group of superheroes but did not want to have to explain how they got their powers. In 2004, Lee recalled, "I couldn't have everybody bitten by a radioactive spider or exposed to a gamma ray explosion. And I took the cowardly way out. I said to myself, 'Why don't I just say they're mutants . They were born that way. ' " [1]
