    Post Poll: What decade did you start reading the X-Men?

    After being around her for a while my assumptions about the community are changing. I expected a lot of the folks here to have started reading x-men in the 80's (like myself) or the 90's. I'm sensing that many of you started much more recently than I would have thought. Just out of curiousity please endulge me by letting me know what decade you started reading.

    Note that the poll results are not public so don't worry about revealing your age... like I just did.

    Mid-eighties. Uncanny X-Men #192. I was out of school with a stomach bug. My dad was going to the grocery store to get something and asked if I wanted anything. A friend had said I should check out the X-Men so I said "An issue of X-Men?".

    Born in 90... was introduced to the X-Men a few years later and got issues here and there. Didn't start buying on my own until the 00's though. Did a lot of catching up.

    91/92

    "Peak" of all things X I suppose, with the Pizza Hut promotions, the 2nd comic came out, the cartoon started, the arcade game (which of course used more 80s characters like Dazzler)

    I was one of those kids who swooned over what a badass that Wolverine was

    WHen it was revealed he always had bone claws I almost had a heart attack from plot overload

    I started reading in 1994 with Uncanny X-Men 276. But in Brazil there was a delay in Marvel's publications for about three years.
