Top Cow is a comic book publishing company that has been around since the early 1990s. Top Cow is an American comic publishing company, an imprint of DC Entertainment launched by Marc Silvestri and Tom Waltz in 1992. The company was sold to Disney in 1998 and is now part of the Disney Empire. The company has released over sixty issues of comic books for adult readers, thirteen of which have been reprinted as hardcovers. Some of the Top Cow comics that have been released are based on cowboys and Indians, robots, superheros, space aliens, cartoon characters, and superheroes.
One of the most popular superheroes ever created is Wolverine, better known as X-Men. Wolverine, also known as Logan, is a member of the X-Men, a team of powerful men and women who battle against evil. Wolverine is a mutant whose healing abilities are very strong; he is even capable of healing wounds after amputations and disfigurements. Wolverine's healing powers are enhanced through the use of adamantium. Wolverine's healing can be enhanced further by the use of radioactive substance called Magneto.
Another of the Top Cow comic book characters is the young teenage Jean Grey, also known as Phoenix, a ward of the X-Men. She is a master of the psionic power called "psi". She has been bitten by an vampire called the Night Nurse, though left with traces of the poisonous saliva, and has been changed into a nearly human looking android. Jean Grey is a member of the futuristic X-Men Team, which includes Storm, Rogue, and Gambit, who are all deeply involved in secret missions for the X-Men.
One of the most well known X-Men characters is Professor X, also known as Professor X (born Charles Xavier), and his most faithful student, Jean Grey. Professor X was made a professor because of his telepathic abilities. He trained many of the future X-Men, especially Jean Grey and Rogue, in the ways of mental hypnosis and mental projection. In the modern times, the X-Men are run by the evil organization called the mutant terrorist group called the Mutant Underground. There is also an android, known as Cyclops, and a blonde female called Jean Grey, who sometimes acts as a surrogate mother to younger Cyclops.
The late sixties and the early seventies are when the most significant of all the X-Men storylines takes place. The story involves the young Jean Grey. She is the daughter of a rich X-Men member named Cyclops, who is the head of a team called the X-Men. He has also recruited some of the younger members of the team into his payroll. At the same time, she is also the girlfriend of a much younger mutant namedials called Storm, whom she barely knows. While learning more about her background, Storm notices a pattern of genetic damage in some of the humans she deals with, and she sets out to research it further herself.
Storm's studies lead her to Cyclops' hidden past and he reveals that he had been secretly turned into a cyst by a scientist working for the X-Men. The cyst turns out to be adamantium, which has a very harmful biological substance in it. When Storm finds out what the adamantium is, she realizes that it will be an evolutionary force and it will completely destroy the world if not controlled.
A few years later, the book returns to the scene of the original X-Men battle with the New Mutants. This time, Storm is the only one who knows the truth about what Cyclops is hiding and how to cure him of the adamantium. She tracks down Cyclops and stops him from hurting anyone else ever again. The book ends with Storm becoming a full-fledged X-Men member and leading the team alongside Wolverine, Jean Grey, and Beast. The book ends with Storm becoming the head of the X-Men.
Over the past ten years, Top Cow has created over twenty different series, many of which have been extremely popular among both children and adults. Some of the most popular are X-Men: Evolution, X-Men: Generation, and the animated series X-Men: Revolution. The most recent series, written by Bill Morrison, is an excellent follow up to the hugely successful X-Men series. As the X-Men become even more popular, the scope of the characters is going to broaden greatly and we could soon see many X-Men characters make their way back into mainstream media.
