Pablo Picasso once said, “good artists copy, but great artists steal.” This was never more true than in the early 80s with the dreaded Brood species created in the pages of X-Men. The creators appeared to use one of the best space horrors ever to grace the big screen: Alien. Then to the untrained eye, it was adapted from an Alien concept to Marvel. Marvel transformed them into the Brood, instant X-Men protagonists. To keep everything legal they called these Xenomorphs, the Brood. The one big difference is the Brood did not have “acid for blood” and instead used weaponry and advanced space ships. But the similarities were pretty striking, still, as a reader, it was fun to watch the X-Men tangle with these alien impregnators.
The name “Brood” worked and we got to see superpowered beings deal with the horror of Alien type creatures that could transform humans into Brood babies. They first appeared in Claremont’s X-Men #155. Recently there has been media hype of a Brood Thor created for an upcoming Avengers storyline. This may have led to the upswing in the price for X-Men #155. Is it too late to grab the first appearance of the Brood by their speculative tails and shake it like a money tree?
