    125. Are You Kiddin'? I Eat X-Men for Breakfast! (1984).

    As noted in the earlier Megaton Man button descriptions, cartoonist Don Simpson loved to poke fun at venerable Marvel Comics characters, notably the Fantastic Four (the Megatropolis Quartet) and Spider-Man (Wall-Man), careful to alter their appearances and names. But when Kitchen Sink produced this button naming the actual X-Men on a product, Marvel went on the attack, charging (with some justification) that its registered trademark had been used without authorization. Faced with a cease and desist letter and considerable legal bills, the button was withdrawn from the market. It remains the scarcest and most sought after of the six MM buttonsd produced. (See also MM buttons #122-124 and 126-127). $10.00

    One note, for serious button collectors, you may want to read the KSP BUTTON TEXT which explains the numbering systems for identifying the various buttons produced over the last 30 years, or see the COMPLETE KSP BUTTON LIST. The list is VERY long, so be patient while it loads.
