This is an original signed production cel and background from the hit series X-Men.  Stan Lee signature is located at the right of cel in black sharpie. * Under a cloud of increasing anti-mutant sentiment, Professor Xavier creates a haven at his Westchester mansion to train young mutants to use their powers for the benefit of humanity, and to prove mutants can be heroes. Xavier recruited Cyclops, Iceman, Angel, Beast and Jean Grey calling them "X-Men" because they possessed the "x-gene", an ability normal humans lacked. Early issues introduced the team's arch enemy, Magneto and his Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, who would later battle the X-Men for years. * Okay everybody, the coast is clear... * Original Animated Cel Overall Size of the Cel: 10 1/2" x 12 1/2" Overall Size of the background: 10" x 14" Excellent Condition This is an original hand-painted cel set-up used in the production of an episode of X-Men titled "Dark Phoenix."  Each one-of-a-kind set-up represents a slight change in position of the characters. When individually photographed and projected in rapid succession, the images appear to move. * To create production cels, the original animator's drawing is transferred onto an acetate cel (by hand-inking and/or photo copying). The cel is then hand-painted on the reverse side. The background accompanying this set-up is an original production background. * The cel and original background is ready to be matted and framed.  The animators notations are located at the top of cel and background.  A ceritificate of Authenticity from Marvel is on the back of background.  The Marvel Seal is located at the top right of the cel.  The cel and background are in a protective sleeve  An information card about the episode is located at the top right of the protective sleeve. *
