Stan Lee Reveals Why He Created The X-MEN; "A Story To Show There’s Good In Every Person.”

Perhaps one of the greatest writers of all time, Stan 'The Man' Lee has revealed why he and artist Jack Kirby created the iconic mutant superhero team, The X-Men. Stan reveals that the mutants had been created as an "Anti-Bigotry" story, hit the jump to check out the full story!





Stan Lee is one of the greatest writers in the history of... Ever. The legendary comic book writer has revealed what led him and artist Jack Kirby to creating the most bizarre superhero team of all time, The X-Men. While there are obviously fans who find Fox's incarnation of the famous superhero team, lacking and quite boring. I'm sure there are many fans who love the comic book incarnation. Stan Lee was asked if the X-Men hosting a variety of different characters was intentional to which Lee joked “If you think it’s good, I did it intentional.” Lee then swapped jokes for seriousness, when he stated "I wanted them to be diverse. The whole underlying principal of the X-Men was to try to be an anti-bigotry story to show there’s good in every person.” There you have it, personally I really don't care what sexuality you are, as long as we can all get along and have a happy ending I'll be a happy Space Seed. Comment below what you think about The X-Men!
