Gil Kane cover; New X-Men Begin; Sunfire Leaves X-Men; 2nd app of Nightcrawler, Storm, Thunderbird & Colossus
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 run to feature X-Men mk. II. The series was languishing in reprint purgatory and close to cancellation before this issue revived the franchise. These characters are now the ones most closely associated with the franchise, and the addition of John Byrne into the mix later in the decade would only serve to send this title into the stratosphere. Any X-Men fan worth their salt needs to own this landmark book.
