Was it either by film, TV series, or did you just stumble upon it!?
My story was when I was little my family and I were going to Israel, we were waiting in the terminal and my dad told me to get something to read (because the flight is like 14 hours long) so I stumbled upon a rack full of X-Men comic books in one of the bookstores and I grabbed most of them (they were like a dollar a piece). They were: Uncanny X-Men #315-318, tie-ins to the Phalanx Covenant. I must have read those issues a hundreds times while I was in the air.
So let's here your story.
**My curiosity spans from wondering if any of the X-films, that have been made, had created an X-Men comic-book-fan.
