Oh, the X-Men. Forever misunderstood in a world that fears and hates them. Unfortunately for our outcast heroes even those that claim to be their greatest fans tend to misunderstand them far more than they believe.

Whether it be due to differing plots in the cartoons, movies, or even video games some have come to believe things about these outsiders that just aren't true. We could even blame the writers themselves as they will often ignore a character's history, change facts to fit their own stories, or simply create something that is so elaborate that readers lose their way in the labyrinth of stories.

Well, have no fear true believers. This article sets the record straight about what is and is not true in the world of the X-Men. While some facts may be as simple as a character's name or power description others run far deeper into the histories and origins of favorite characters and famous storylines.

If the only involvement you've had with the X-Men are the movies you must click next to begin your much-needed education. If you're a long-time reader of the comics and think you know everything there is to know go ahead and click next anyway. We're always up for some friendly sparring.
