God Loves, Man Kills (more fully, Marvel Graphic Novel #5: X-Men: God Loves, Man Kills) is a graphic novel published in 1982 by Marvel Comics, starring their popular superhero team the X-Men. It was written by Chris Claremont and illustrated by Brent Anderson.

The novel concerned a reverend, William Stryker, stirring up religious anti-mutant fervor and kidnapping Professor X in an attempt to eradicate all mutants. It is one of the most clear-cut examples of X-Men comics using mutant relations as a metaphor for race relations.

The novel was one of the sources for the second X-Men film, X2.
