X-Men Funko POPS
The X-Men are a team idealized by Professor Charles Xavier as a response to the emergence of naturally ocurring super-humans known as mutants among the baseline human society. Willing to promote his dream of peaceful coexistence between mutants and humans, Xavier trained his X-Men in the use of their powers at the Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, educating them as protectors of a world that fears and hate them. Over the years, the heroes of mutantkind found their mission constantly challenged by both reactionary humans and fanatic mutants. Fruit of an evolutionary saltation, Mutants, or Homo Superior, are born with superhuman abilities which generally manifest themselves at puberty. Seen as a threat, mutants are often hated and feared by other humans. Spending most of his early adult years studying mutation at Oxford University, Professor Charles Xavier, who himself was secretly a mutant telepath, had a dream of mutants and humans coexisting pacifically. During his period at Oxford, Xavier found in the brilliant geneticist Moira a trusted colleague with whom he shared his ideals and plans. Charles Xavier has a dream! Over the years, Xavier realized other mutants envisioned different agendas and schemes for the future of mutantkind.
In Israel, he met a mutant named Magnus, whose views differed radically from Xavier’s dream, as Magnus expected an inevitable species war between mutants and humans. In Egypt, following an encounter with an unscrupulous mutant telepath, known as the Shadow King, Xavier vowed to protect the world from the threat of evil mutants, endeavoring to foster peaceful coexistence between mutants and humans. Ultimately, with Moira’s support, Xavier decided to open a school for mutants, to secretly train them to protect a world that hates and fears them as the legendary X-Men. To accomplish his goal, Xavier reformed his father’s estate into the Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. In his “X-Mansion“, he constructed the Danger Room to test and train mutants, and developed Cerebro, a powerful mutant detector machine. After years of preparation, Xavier decided it was the time to recruit the young mutants he had been keeping track of, as anti-mutant hysteria hit its peak. With reports about a young mutant accidentally endangering and then saving a crowd of people with an optic blast, Xavier traveled to Washington D.C., seeking out FBI agent Fred Duncan, who was assigned to investigate reports of mutants.
Xavier convinced Duncan to allow him to enroll young mutants in his school and prepare them to battle evil mutants. In the following days, Xavier, as Professor X, recruited Scott Summers, the young mutant in the news story. Rescued from the clutches of evil mutant Jack Winters, Scott became the first of the X-Men, Cyclops. Later on, Cyclops and Professor X saved young Bobby Drake, a mutant commanding extreme cold and moisture, from an angry lynch mob. Drake joined the group as Iceman. Xavier’s next recruit was the winged Warren Worthington III, who had already embarked on a solo super-hero career as the High-Flying Angel. After a brief battle, Angel agreed to join the group. Their next recruit was the dexterous and intelligent Hank McCoy, whom the X-Men rescued from a would-be conqueror, the Conquistador. McCoy joined Xavier under the codename Beast. Rounding out the group, Xavier had Jean Grey join them as Marvel Girl. Jean Grey had been mentored by Xavier for years since childhood, after her mental powers manifested.
