KID'S KLASSIC (KIRBY) KOMIC KOVERS - THE X-MEN #1...
You're looking at the first issue of The MUTANTS - or at least
you would be had STAN LEE got his way. You see, that's the name
Stan wanted to use, but publisher MARTIN GOODMAN overruled
him on the grounds that kids wouldn't know what a mutant is. As Stan
pointed out after coming up with the new name, they wouldn't know
what an X-MAN is either, but he had to do what the boss wanted.
The result was worth it. X-Men sounds better and is far more
enigmatic, don't you think?
