Stan Lee's original title of the comic book series The X-Men. However, the title was discarded by his superiors and replaced with the alternate name now famously synonymous with mutants. Manager types at the Marvel Comics Group thought "the mutants" would scare or warp young minds. I don't see how they thought "X-Men" was going to be any better, but that's life. The original Mutants included Cyclops, Marvel Girl aka Jean Grey or Phoenix, the wise and wooly The Beast, Angel and a very young Ice Man.

the preceding was an attempt to save an empty nodeshell which I'd hate to see deleted cuz it's got some nifty softlinks.
