X-Men is a live action television series that will start airing on as part of Syfy's fall lineup. It is based on the comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
The series follows the adventures of the X-Men, who under a cloud of increasing anti-mutant sentiment, Professor Charles Xavier created a haven at his family estate to train young mutants to use their powers for the benefit of humanity, and to prove mutants can be heroes. Xavier recruited calling them "X-Men" because they possess special powers due to their possession of the "X-gene," a gene which normal humans lack and which gives mutants their abilities.
