X_Men helped get the genre to where it is now but have been dismissed by GA for SPider-man and Avengers on One side and Batman and Superman on the other side.
Although I'm sure you're completely right, its so strange to me because here in the UK everyone I knew as a child knew of the X-MEN, Wolverine Spider-Man, Superman and Batman. I knew of the Avengers maybe individually but not as a group. I'm not even sure what the line up for the Avengers was when I was a child in the 90s'. But thats my own experience and ignorance haha.
Edit* today it's a different story
