xkonk's Days of Uncanny X-Men Past12232

#117 is the first appearance of Amahl Farouk, the Shadow King. If anyone happened to watch Legion on FX I think the actor who portrayed Farouk did a great job.

#217, Dazzler gets so hung up on proving herself that she knocks herself out trying to fight the Juggernaut (who apparently is a big fan of her music and doesn't even try to fight). A pretty unimportant issue but I kinda like the cover. Good job, Walt Simonson.




You know Dazzler worked really hard because she's doing it again on this newsstand copy.

#317, the battle with the Phalanx continues after a shift over to the X-Men series. This is the first appearance proper for Skin and Blink. Cannonball's sister, Paige, also joins the unnamed Generation Next team in this issue but her first appearance was apparently in a ROM annual.

#417, the team meets a group of bad guy werewolves led by a dude named Maximus Lobo. It was a simpler time.

#517, with a very Land Emma Frost on the cover. The team takes out the Predator X group and turns to Scalphunter to find out who sent them.

4th series #17, Legacy #617. M is basically possessed by her brother Empath, who has to feed on the life force of others, and it isn't going well.

Day 18 starts with part 2 of Magneto attempting to defeat the X-Men. It turns out that putting them in a hot air balloon didn't work! It also turns out that Magneto can do something called 'magnetic hypnotism'. He still doesn't win.

#118 has the X-Men in Japan on their way back from the Savage Land. They run into Moses Magnum, who is threatening to sink the country if he isn't made emperor. Also has Prof. X leave for the Shi'ar empire since he thought the X-Men had died, and the first appearance of Mariko.




hey, look! a random Whitman copy.

#218 has Dazzler recover from her fight with Juggernaut, join with the rest of the team (currently just the folks on the cover), and then... try attacking the Juggernaut one at a time. Turns out that doesn't work but they're able to stop him when they work together as a team. In the meantime, Havok and Polaris have some adventures in New Mexico.

#318 has Jubilee all grown up and ready to leave school... to join a new school under Banshee and Emma Frost in Generation Next. She must be going for a doctorate.

#518, Cyclops goes into Emma's mind so that the Dodson's can draw a bunch of diamond women. At some point in the past, Emma removed the Void from the Sentry's mind but then had to stay in diamond form to keep him locked away. They succeed in getting Void out, so Emma can change back to normal, but it just goes into Cyclops instead.

#19 is the first appearance of the Mimic, who is neat character. To answer the question on the cover, turns out he isn't a mutant. The Mimic didn't show up in the 'real' X-Men comics too much but an alternate version is all through the Exiles series; I like that version pretty well.

#119 has part 2 of the battle with Moses Magnum. Banshee screams loud enough to destroy an island, which is.... pretty loud. There's also a shadowy sort-of first appearance of Mutant X, later known as Proteus. It isn't recognized as such on any labels though, I don't think.

#219 Havok rejoins the X-Men (hope he survives the experience!) while Polaris, possessed by Malice, rejoins the Marauders.

#419 continues the battle with the werewolves, and drama in the infirmary. Since they introduced the nurse character Annie and her son Carter, they've been in the infirmary a lot.

#519, Cyclops successfully fends off the Void. Beast, who has been trying to figure out why Magneto is around and what exactly the X-Men are doing, decides to take a break from the team.

4th series #19, Legacy #619. In the last issue for this series, Psylocke has had enough of Magneto's leadership and takes him out. Magneto survives, after Psylocke leaves, thanks to Exodus and Elixir.

This is really cool to see how much the X-Men changed over the years.

Those Austen years were definitely a low point for me, though.

I didn't subscribe/read from somewhere in the 320ish range to 490 or so while I was in school and stuff. Some of these I've gone back and read but some I've literally never seen before! Definitely a lot of changes and stories that went by the wayside. One kind of cool thing about the current reboot is they can dig up whoever they want and bring them back.

Day 20 starts with the story of how Prof. X became paralyzed, and a cover that I always confuse with #9 at a glance.

#120 has the first appearance of most of Alpha Flight (not Vindicator, who was back in 109, not Puck, who shows up in Alpha Flight 1). The X-Men continue their world tour as they leave Japan but get stuck in Calgary when the Canadians come for Wolverine again. When Chris Claremont was at a convention a couple years ago I had to decide what to take and this is one that made the cut. I decided beforehand that a longbox (or two) full of X-Men and Wolverine books would be a bit much.

I miss the days you could take a run of something smaller and have an artist or writer sign his work and sit and talk without paying a downpayment on a new home

#220 has Storm finally deciding that she wants her powers back (she lost them 30-40 issues earlier) and heading down to find Forge. This plot point didn't make a lot of sense to me; my understanding of Forge's power was that he could make whatever he wanted without understanding how it worked. So he should have been able to make a power-restoring gadget pretty easily if he made a power-removing gadget. I guess you have to suspend disbelief sometimes.

#320 has the start to Legion Quest proper, as Legion has decided that his father (Prof. X) would have been better off if he didn't have to fight off Magneto all the time. So he makes a time travel portal, but when the X-Men investigate some of them are pulled back in time as well.

#420, the werewolf arc comes to an end. Angel discovers that his blood can heal, which he uses to help Husk, and calls things off for the time being with Psylocke.

#520 has the X-Men fend off a group of U-Men, and Magneto shows some really high power levels by starting to pull the bullet with Kitty Pryde in it (from Astonishing X-Men) back towards Earth.

5th series #1, Legacy #620. Uncanny took about a year and a half break between the 4th and 5th series, so I kinda indulged on some variants. The X-Men had been doing other stuff in other series, like X-Men Red, but this storyline was supposed to bring everyone back together for a big event. This issue starts to set the table by introducing a lot of weirdness, such as a vaccine for the mutant gene, lots of Madrox duplicates all around doing odd things, and Kitty being kidnapped along with a Senator and... Apocalypse.

standard cover




Jen Bartel variant




Mark Brooks variants




David Marquez variant. I don't honestly remember getting this, so it probably came with one of the others (?)




Dave Cockrum wraparound variant
