The plot may seem like familiar fare, but X-Men #94 would be the first regular issue of Marvel’s long-running title to feature the new team of Storm, Banshee, Wolverine, Thunderbird, Colossus, Nightcrawler, and founding member Cyclops. These characters would turn the struggling book into one of Marvel’s best-selling series, with their series debut becoming the first highly collectible issue of X-Men in several years. (In an interesting twist, future Marvel superstar Wolverine didn’t even rate getting featured on the cover.)

Although the new characters were introduced in Giant-Size X-Men #1, this is the first issue in the main book's run to feature this new team. The series had previously spent a long stint in reprint purgatory, and was close to cancellation before this issue revived the franchise. These characters remain the ones most closely associated with the X-Men franchise, and the addition of artist John Byrne into the mix later in the decade would send this title into the stratosphere. Any X-Men fan worth their salt needs to own this landmark book.

This copy of X-Men #94 earned an amazing 9.8 Universal Grade from CGC, with off-white to white pages. The Marvel Comics and X-Men logos pop off the page thanks to the bold yellow color strike. The second cover appearance of the New X-Men team is incredibly sharp on this iconic Gil Kane and Dave Cockrum illustration. With the X-Men confirmed to be joining the MCU soon, all of their key issues are on fire. Another 9.8 X-Men #94 sold earlier this year for $63,000. Where will the price end up after Storm, Colossus, and Nightcrawler are part of the highest-grossing movie franchise of all time?

Overstreet Guide 2021 NM- (9.2) value = $2,000.
