Marvel X-Men Earth-616 Normal Timeline

The way the world works:

The X-Men is a group of people born with and able to show super powers at any time (unlike Inhumans who must go through the Terrigen Mist to unlock their birth powers). The X-men were found by Charles Xavier, also known as Professor X, to teach them about their powers as well as keep a hateful world from hurting them while teaching non- violent actions. The comic mirrors the real life problems between groups that sadly still exist.

Reader’s Note: This timeline will only focus on the books in which a given characters’ story and world had an impact – if they are in just one page, that will not count. However, for events or super groups, I will include the main book even if the character is not in all parts of the book. Also, for easy collecting, I will be listing by graphic novels.
