X-men started with a man named Charles Xavier, a gifted mutant with tremendous telepathic and mental abilities had a wish to mutants from humankind and also protect humankind from those mutants who would use their powers for evil.
Charles Xavier started the Xavier Institute for Gifted Youngsters, (now known as the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning). There he could train mutants in secret and help them control their unusual powers. The institute is also the home to an elite group of mutants that Xavier uses to help protect humans from harm and evil. These heroes are known as, The X-Men.
The X-Men's members have changed throughout the years. As time goes on, more and more mutants have found the Xavier Institute to be home. Although the rosters have changed, they all have a unified purpose, to protect humanity and work towards a day when we can all live in peace.
One of the most popular X-men characters is Wolverine
Wolverine is a mutant who possesses animal-keen senses, enhanced physical capabilities, three retracting bone claws on each hand and a healing factor that allows him to recover from virtually any wound, disease or toxin, at an accelerated rate. The healing factor also slows down his aging process, enabling him to live beyond a normal human lifespan. His powerful healing factor enabled the supersoldier program Weapon X to bond the near-indestructible metal alloy adamantium to his skeleton and claws without killing him.
