X-Men action figures portray characters created for Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. While the characters were introduced in 1963, the action figures were first produced in 1991 by a company called Toy Biz (now Marvel Toys). Toy Biz introduced the first nine figures in the series that year. These characters included Wolverine, Storm, Cyclops, Archangel, Nightcrawler, Apocalypse, Juggernaut, Colossus, and Magneto. During that decade, at least two sets of X-Men action figures were released annually, featuring other characters which included Gambit, Iceman, Banshee, Forge, Sabretooth, Professor X, and Rogue.
