"Ummm, no it really wasn't. The New Mutants first appeared in Marvel Graphic Novel #4 in December 1982, with the ongoing to follow in March 83, Alpha Flight #1 hit the stands in August 1983."

Technically they weren't a spin-off but an extension of the line. The only thing that linked them was Professor X and Moira McTaggart. Alpha Flight actually appeared IN the X-Men and they proved so popular they were spun out into their own title. The New Mutants was the first real 'x-title', to be sure...but Alpha Flight I think rightfully deserves the title of spin-off. In media terms, a spin-off generally refers to moving a character from one title to another and then changing the focus and protagonist (example: Angel moving from Buffy to his own show).
