Stewart Donates ‘X-Men’ Costumes To Museum

WASHINGTON (AP) — Costumes from the “X-Men” movie franchise are now part of the National Museum of American History’s collection.

Patrick Stewart, who plays Professor X in the globally popular movies, was in Washington Saturday afternoon to donate the costumes.

Among the selections are costumes worn by Stewart, Ian McKellen as Magneto, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Halle Berry as Storm.

Stewart’s long career includes performances with the Royal Shakespeare Company. He gained fame as Capt. Jean-Luc Picard in the TV series “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”

Museum director John Gray says the costumes and props will help the museum tell the story of the American superhero genre.

“X-Men” began as a Marvel comic book about a team of mutant superheroes, first published in 1963.
