I'm sure there are X-Men comics, just go to E-Bay and search around for some. As for No.1, I know there isn't any, because there's only 1-2 issues of it in existance and they're sold for two to three thousand dollars. So I doubt No.1 would be online.

Not looking to purchase, just to read online.

In that case, I don't really know then. You can try browsing around on Google, but I doubt they have any readible ones online.

Publishing X-men comic on the net, or reading them.

It is not illegal if Marvel has released them for online publishing. Many books can now be read online.

In fact, if it's been published online anywhere, chances are someone along the line got permission.

Finally, it is only illegal if it is being sold for profit or if it hurts Marvel's proceeds from its copyright (note: it is a "right" not a "write"). Because Marvel no longer publishes these out-of-print comics, it will not hurt Marvel's profits -- and the profits of comic book dealers don't factor into equating damage done to MARVEL'S copyright.

So, if it is published online, and you don't have to pay for it, it is [ed]likely [/ed]legal.

I appreciate a site that (unlike others) shows concern for online abuse of intellectual property -- but don't hamstring yourself thinking these rights extend further than they do.
