Following the X-Men history is a probably touch more difficult than navigating your family tree, which is why Beat contributor Kate Willaert created this handy X-Men infographic, detailing the "50 Years of Mutants Past."
The mutant roster has gone through many moderations over the years. New mutants have been introduced, past mutants have died and come back to life (I'm looking at you Professor X) and other mutants have joined forces in smaller sub-groups. This simple-to-read infographic conveniently visualizes the complex mutant progressions (and regressions).
Though the 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' film might have the largest mutant line-up to date, it doesn't even begin to cover the number of mutants in the featured in the comics throughout the years. Browsing through this infographic is a fun way to brush up on your X-Men history before watching the film!
