The X-Men started out as a band of mutant misfits akin to those involved in the counter-culture movements in the 1960s- a disenfranchised group of teen mutants looking for a little acceptance in a world that both feared and hated them.
That's why the fluid nature of the group's lineup makes sense, since there will always be a new batch of teens manifesting powers and looking for a little guidance at Professor Xavier's School For Gifted Youngsters.
But it's really hard to keep track of all the changes when various characters have been coming and going for over fifty years.
Illustrator Ed Piskor created this handy visual guide to help us keep track of how the X-Men lineup has changed over the years, with each row representing a decade in X-Men history, starting in the 60s and running through the 90s. Looks like you've got one and a half more to go Ed!
