xkonk's Days of Uncanny X-Men Past12232

#107, commonly listed as the first appearance of the Starjammers although 3 of the 5 had appeared earlier (it's only really the first appearance of Hepzibah and Raza). It would more accurately be listed as the first appearance of the Imperial Guard, who I honestly think are cooler anyway.

#207 with an occasionally-swiped Wolverine cover.




And in newsstand

#507, listed as the first appearance of the X-Club even though most of them are in the previous issue. I guess they don't formally join the team until here. It wasn't really important in general but I kind of liked the science group.

@Studley_Dudley I missed your post in the middle of all my stuff... 202 is a cool cover. If I see it skimming through eBay or whatever I always feel like it should be #97 or something.

Day 8 starts with #8, first appearance of Unus the Untouchable. He's apparently the guy who wanted to be part of the Evil Mutants, as he actively looked around for them. Unus is also (maybe) the father of another Magneto follower, Carmella Unuscione, who can make a force field.

#108, where Corsair is revealed to be Cyclops' father (but not to Cyclops). First John Byrne work on the series.




I also have this lesser copy, which will be going up on the sale thread.

#208, with the beginning of a three-way battle between the X-Men, Hellfire Club, and Nimrod




and a newsstand copy

#308, where Jean proposes to Scott at Thanksgiving.

#408, with a cover featuring former prostitute Stacy X. Kind of seems like she should have been introduced in the 90s. The ongoing plot includes the Vanisher selling drugs, which also seems like it should have been in the 90s.

#508, whose plot summary includes "manages to stab Chimera in her chest with a bystander's sword". Ah, comic books.

4th series #8/Legacy #608 has a couple of unhappy reunions as Monet runs into her brother Empath and Psylocke fights Fantomex.

Day 9 starts with, I believe, the first meeting of the X-Men and the Avengers. It's certainly the first appearance of Lucifer, who we later find out is responsible for Prof. X's paralysis.

#109, a day late for Canada Day, with the first appearance of Weapon Alpha aka Guardian, and the first mention of Alpha Flight. I had to make some choices when Chris Claremont was at a convention near me a couple years ago and this one made the cut.

#209 wraps up the Phoenix-centric (Rachel, not Jean) run from the past few issues and also kills a couple members of the Hellfire Club.

#309, in which we learn of another one of Prof. X's former girlfriends and another example of why he's a jerk.

#409 continues the story arc of the Vanisher's drug-dealing and the Church of Humanity.

#509 has a battle between the X-Men and the Sisterhood, but Northstar wins with this quote, "I take it back. I quit. Who wants to save a bunch of terrified American bigots? I'm going back to Canada where I enjoyed socialized health care, the metric system, and tolerance."

4th series #9, Legacy #609, has Genocide (I guess that's the name you go with when your parents are Apocalypse and Famine) creating an army of evil Archangels.

Day 10 means we're a tenth of the way done! Starting with #10, which I believe I "stole" from @sportshort This one is ripe for replacement at some point so it can still be his someday. First appearance of Ka-Zar.

#110, first appearance of Warhawk, who uses the Danger Room against the X-Men. Things like that end up happening a lot so I guess the room is appropriately named.

This one looks to be in pretty good shape; I should send it in.




This one is not in good shape. I just put it on the sale thread.

#210 with a favorite cover. Story wise this is the first appearance of the Marauders and beginning of the Mutant Massacre.

A decent direct edition




A less decent newsstand copy.

#310. Cyclops and Cable get some father-son bonding time before Cyclops' bachelor party and in true superhero fashion they run into a fight with the X-Cutioner.




I'm virtually certain this is the original bag I put on this comic, which means that whatever store I was getting my books from at the time sold newsstands.

#410, the very important first appearance of Sammy the Squid-boy.

#510. The Sisterhood attack the mansion so they can get something from Wolverine's room... a lock of Jean Grey's hair. She's currently dead at this point, so a) nothing good can come of this and b) kind of creepy, Logan.

4th series #10, Legacy #610. As promised, an army of evil Archangels.

I did like the Mutant Massacre. When I found out why it was done (Claremont wanted to thin out the Morlock ranks), I thought creative did a good job. Plus not too many tie-in issues that haunted most crossovers afterwards. I buy the MM issues a lot too.

The little run of covers from 210 to 213 are among my favorite.

In terms of the various "wiping out mutants" storylines throughout the X-series, I found the bus explosion in New X-Men (the 2004 series) hit me the hardest. It might have been because the Massacre was before I was really reading the series so when I got to it I was sort of reading history.
