June 2021 marks the 30th anniversary of Marvel's Mutant Genesis!
The summer of 1991 was a great time to be an X-Fan.  Marvel shifted into high gear with the introduction of new titles and creative teams that produced incredible storylines. The House of Ideas made a full-court press with its promotional campaign for Mutant Genesis, including creator appearances on the comic convention circuit, comic and fanzine advertising as well as an amazing set of retail displays and posters.
X-Force #1 - Marvel kicked off Mutant Genesis with X-Force #1 on June 25, 1991 following the finale of the New Mutants four months earlier with issue #100. With plot and art by Rob Liefeld and script by Fabian Nicieza, X-Force #1 hit like a big-budget summer blockbuster with tons of action along with plot twists and teasers for future stories.
X-Men #1 - Mutant Genesis continued on August 13, 1991 with the release of X-Men #1 amid extraordinary anticipation. This new title by Chris Claremont, Jim Lee and Scott Williams divided the X-Men into two separate tactical teams and introduced the Acolytes as new villains that would catalyze the return of Magneto as a villain.
Uncanny X-Men #281 - Plotted by Jim Lee and Whilce Portacio with script by John Byrne and art by Whilce Portacio and Art Thibert, Uncanny X-Men #281 introduces Trevor Fitzroy, a villain from the future who stages a vicious attack against the Hellfire Club in an attempt to win leadership of the Upstarts from Sebastian Shaw’s son Shinobi.
X-Factor #71 - As the original X-Men return to their core teams, Professor Xavier renews his government ties to help the U.S. form a new group under the leadership of Havoc with members Wolfsbane, Madrox, Polaris and Strong Guy in a fun and quirky title written by Peter David with art by Larry Stroman and Al Milgrom.  
Excalibur #42 - Co-creator Alan Davis returned to the title as writer and artist alongside inker Mark Farmer with Excalibur #42 in a story that starts with the destruction of the team's lighthouse headquarters and is followed by the return of the bizarre extra-dimensional group called Technet and the introduction of a new hero Kylun.
Mutant Genesis had a seismic effect on the X-Universe and these titles brought together some truly remarkable creators that dazzled readers with amazing art and fantastic stories that channeled the best of the X-Men's history while introducing an incredible new array of characters and plots.  These comics definitely stand the test of time and I'm looking forward to exploring them further over the summer.
