Do you think you are an X-Men master? Do you think you know all the facts about X-Men? Well, I think you are probably wrong. While reading the article I bet you would go “Wait! I did not know this!” Look into this article for the lesser known facts about them:
What Does the “X” in X-Men Stand For?
While you probably are thinking that the “X” in“X-Men” came because of the professor’s name “Xavier” as he assembled the entire force you are one among the many people who are wrong.

However, the letter eventually came to stand for the “Xtra” powers they possessed. At first, the X-Men were supposed to be Merry Mutants but they later settled for The X-Men.

It is true that the Marvel Superhero was given an opportunity to be a part of the X-Men squad but he declined the opportunity to be a part of the X-Men by saying that he preferred to stay a solo act and did not want to be a part of the group. What a great sight it would have been if we had our Amazing and awesome SpiderMan along with our X-Men squad.
