He's been the team leader in the comics since 1964, but Hollywood always disrespects him.

Alex was younger in Evolutions thought he was always meant to be older brother?

No, Alex was the younger brother in the comics, Sarah. The movies made him older than Scott, but that was yet another thing the movies got wrong.

Scott was introduced in the first X-Men comic, as team leader. Alex wasn't introduced until the end of the '60s, as the kid brother.

Yep, as Havok. I don't think they intended for Scott to have a brother at first.

Yeah, it was years after they introduced Scott. 1963 versus 1969.

1969? I assumed it was the 1970s.

The X-Men comic was shut down in the beginning of the '70s. Turned into a reprint title.

Oh yeah, I remember when the relaunch happened. I was reading a Spider-Man or Avengers comic, or maybe a Fantastic Four comic, and it showed an advert for X-Men that showed the old team and the new team.

That relaunch was one of the most pivotal things in comic book history. It led to the Claremont/Byrne team up that turned the X-Men into Marvel's best-selling comic, with X-Men and related storylines dominating the '80s and '90s.

One thing though, I'm no fan of Dave Cockrum's art. Particularly not after he returned to the comic in the early '80s after Byrne left. His work always had this childish look.

Yep, that is true. Even though I wasn't reading X-Men at the time, I did notice them a lot through reading other titles. As for the drawings... well, the swashbuckler boots always amused me. What was with Marvel and those things back then?

Marvel's had swashbuckler boots for a long time. Captain America.

Yeah, I know, but they caught on big in the 1970s.

I always wondered how they could move around in those things.
