I don't think this has any actual association with Marvel, outside of having to be officially licensed to use names and artwork, just one of several books released during the early '90s to cash in on the Mutant Hysteria of the day. And, as a teen right in the middle of that Mutant Hysteria, this seemed like a good purchase.

Not to say that it's a bad book, just very simple. It includes the origins of the X-Men, grossly simplified, as well as the various teams and group members with short histories, also simplified. Reading through this, it's also very clear how much has changed or come out about the characters and the X-Men since the release of X-Men #1 (which this book was written to coincide with). In fact, with that particular X-Men series, much of the information shared about certain characters was incorrect or just grossly out of date within six months of its release. But, that's the problem of keeping tabs on comic chronologies... they're always changing.

Still, a fun read for its time, and something a younger comic book fan might enjoy. I'll be dropping this one in my Little Free Library for someone else to find. ( )
