All of the heroes associated with the X-Men are mutants. They fight for the peace between mutants and the people. However, the most well known character from the team is Wolverine, or as some call him, Weapon X. As someone with immense amounts of strength, and the ability to grow claws out of his knuckles, he is a strong leader for the X-Men group.
An archenemy of the X-Men and Wolverine is Magneto. Magneto is a powerful mutant, who has the ability to control magnetic fields and generate them. Another villain is a female, known as Mystique. She was also born as a mutant, just like the X-Men. Her superpower is the ability to shapeshift, and mimic voices of her chosen character.
These comic characters and their story is very well known, thanks to the multiple movies based on the original comics. There are eight X-Men movies in total. (X-Men, 2000, X2: X-Men United, 2003, X-Men: The Last Stand, 2006, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, 2009, X-Men: First Class, 2011, The Wolverine, 2013, X-Men: Days of Future Past, 2014, and X-Men: Apocalypse, 2016.) To have a well understanding of the X-Men stories, these movies are highly recommended.
Marvel Universe has such a wide range of characters and their stories. With that being said, X-Men is one of the biggest known series out there for Marvel, and one of the most interesting.
