#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.

A decent direct edition




A less decent newsstand copy.




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.

Day 11 starts with my earliest issue in the run that isn't slabbed. It feels like kind of a filler given the importance of the issues around it, and this particular copy will need to be upgraded at some point.

#111 isn't patriotic per se but circuses feel kind of American.




This one isn't as nice but still might be worth slabbing.

#211, where the Marauders get their first full appearance and the Mutant Massacre beings in earnest. Kitty also gets stuck in her phased state, leading to the X-Men vs Fantastic Four miniseries.




And a newsstand

#311, one of like four or five times the X-Men have regretted trying to integrate Sabretooth into the team/mansion. Also has a cool scene that has stuck in my memory of Bishop powering himself up by sitting outside in a light snowstorm, absorbing lots of little jolts of energy.

#411, where the Juggernaut calls the X-Men for help with Black Tom Cassidy, who has basically become a bunch of roots. Flashforward to current issues where Black Tom is basically their interface with Krakoa.

#511, Madelyne Pryor's plans to take Jean's body go wrong while Psylocke is able to get her back (well, her Asian body).

4th series #11, Legacy #611. The Hellfire Club shows up yet again.

Day 12 starts with the Juggernaut. The cover says his menace is undescribable but obviously the word they're looking for is 'unstoppable'.

#112 is a bit of a special case in that it is, as far as I know, George Perez' only X-Men work (just the cover; John Byrne was still doing interiors).

#212 is another Mutant Massacre Wolvie cover. I've got a bit of a Rick Leonardi story back on my 201 post; this was signed at the same time.




And a newsstand copy from my LCS' back issue bins.

#312, the Phalanx show up again. There's also some weirdness with Iceman and Emma Frost, setting up an issue I remember from reading the run back when it came out.

#412, somewhat appropriately given today's first comic, has the Juggernaut join the X-Men for a bit.

#512, Land finally cycles off the book. A time travel trip for the X-Club allows for a neat old-timey cover.

4th series #12, Legacy #612. A very First Class/Fassbender-ian Magneto cover.

Lucky #13 has the second appearance of the Juggernaut with a cover that I think is almost as good as the first.

#113 has a very comics summary, with the X-Men fighting their dread enemy Magneto... in a volcano! It also has true oddball Nanny (a robot who acts like people are children) and Storm revealing her lockpicking skills picked up during her childhood.

I got this copy on eBay just for the Byrne sig.




And this is my top copy.

#213 has a classic Wolverine/Sabretooth cover and wraps up the Mutant Massacre. There's also a shadowy 'first appearance' of Mr. Sinister in a psychic vision and Psylocke joins the team. Pretty eventful overall!




I don't have more than 2 copies of many books, but I apparently hit it for this one when I picked up the 9.8.

#313, the battle with the Phalanx continues. Also, Iceman wakes up with Emma Frost in his head after both have been in the infirmary for a while.

#413, where Havok is returned to the X-Men by the nurse who has been treating him while he's in a coma. Annie and her son Carter start to stay at the mansion.

#513 is the second issue in the Dark Reign period for the X-Men after a one-shot with the Dark Avengers. The Dark X-Men are introduced, consisting of Mystique pretending to be Prof. X, Daken as Wolverine, Dark Beast as Beast (a lot of Dark going on), Emma Frost, Mimic, Cloak and Dagger, Weapon Omega, and Namor.

Day 14 starts with the first appearance of the Sentinels and another great, early cover.

#114 is a less than great cover, IMO. But they can't all be winners.

#314 follows up on the Iceman/Emma Frost drama, where Emma shows Bobby that he hasn't really been exploring the full extent of his powers. This makes him
