18. “The New Mutants” No. 1 (1983)  The Xavier School gets some new students as Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod introduce the first of many, many, many X-Men spinoff titles. The class, which first appeared in the “New Mutants” original graphic novel in 1982, includes Psyche (Danielle Moonstar), left, Cannonball (Sam Guthrie), Wolfsbane (Rahne Sinclair), Sunspot (Roberto da Costa) and Karma (Xi’an Coy Manh). (Later, when Kitty Pryde is reassigned from the X-Men to the New Mutants, she shouts the classic line, “Professor Xavier is a jerk!”) The second X-spinoff, “Alpha Flight,” started later in 1983, with the decade also bringing along “X-Factor,” “Excalibur” and “Wolverine.” (Bob McLeod / Marvel)
