    Oh, some great choices, Sandmans_Raven!
    Larocca at his best on X-Treme.
    Probably my favorite Anka cover! So much history there.
    One of the best Lee! Wasthinking to add it to my top5 too. Iconic!
    Not a fan of RED cover. He is like a 70 year old here.
    Beautiful by Mann

    I can't begin to narrow it down to only 5 favorites, but you guys already covered most of them. Here's a few I would add:

    As for MMX, I am not a fan of covers. All Dodson's work with them looked like a fast sketch and uninspired at best.

    Gambit could look as a real badass King on it but he looks like a bored child.

    Generally I don't love the Dodson's, but I love that particular cover. It's a callback to the original Gambit series and I didn't think he looked bored, just smarmy and unamused with his subjects and full of attitude.

    But yeah, I'm forever a fan of Joe Mad and the foil covers. I guess the 90s will always own a piece of my heart.

    All the good covers were taken, so these three are the best I could do...

    Totally fair. Artists tend to make him look old for some reason. I remember Cheung did the same for the Astonishing X-Men cover he did

    Yes! Good calls. I especially love the 1st and 3rd picks.

    What's great is a lot of my favorites were already posted so lets me find a few more that couldn't make the cut otherwise. Clay Mann(my top 5 possibly could be all Clay Mann covers) and Gambit Revolution cover. All New x-factor and the infamous Remy And Rogue cover. Uncanny X-men 277. I forget which issue it is but the one Apple posted with the close up of Gambit with the 3 cards is great and Endangered Species X-men would all be in the run for me normally.

    But for my 5 I think

    1. Ultimate X-men

    The writer of the book hated Gambit and didn't want him in the book but he took a two issue vacation and they wrote a Gambit story there. And it gave me one of my favorite covers. I'm a huge minimalist art fan. Any art that can convey a character with the least amount of details is always beautiful to me. There was also a cover for Deadpool v Gambit I was thinking about cause it was very minimalist but it just seemed repetitive of this one.

    2. X-men Legacy #245


    It must be the American in me but I love an AU Gambit with a gun lol "it's got a good spread"

    3. X-men vs the fantastic 4


    Gambit as the human torch. It's so cool

    Does anyone have any ideas for how they can make Gambit relevant in the current era bc Excalibur aint it

    4. Uncanny X-men


    A lot of people rag on the artwork of Uncanny at this time but I personally loved this kind of art and man this cover. It's so good.

    5. Hellbound


    Death Gambit. The gambit that didn't pay off. I personally wished he had shorter hair but man this cover art is really good. And the little detail of him being big while the people in the corner are small was a nice touch

    I almost put this one! Such a cool cover and a great little story/introduction for Gambit. Didn't realize Millar hated Gambit, but that makes sense.

    Cool choices! First one just screams for Cable to pick a charged card
