    I'd love to see Marvel Studios run with a variation of this story for a standalone Gambit flick; pitting a young, inexperienced Remy against a ruthless Creed. This is one of the stories where Sabretooth is presented as genuinely threatening, as opposed to a monosyllabic henchman. He's cunning, ruthless, unbelievably cruel, and he absolutely torments Gambit. The ending was a real gut punch. It felt like a story with consequences, one that shaped Remy into the character he would eventually become.

    Excellent pick
    Wow! Very cool review! You get all the best from it
    Definetely would love to see it in MCU.

    Uncanny X-Men 173. One of the first random X-Men comics I picked up. I love a good Wolverine/Rogue team up
    That X-23 issue is Golden!

    Two issues that use to come to my mind when I'm thinking of favorites are UXM #183 (especially because of the brilliant first pages)



    and UXM #182.



    Not very funny, I know... I guess I'm kind of masochist.

    New Mutants #21 - Slumber Party

    Perfect Sienkiewicz art, 1st appearance of Warlock and Cypher is properly introduced to book here. Stakes aren't too high and you get some great character moments at the sleepover. It's an oversied issue so maybe cheating a bit.

    Uncanny X-Men #467 - 24 Seconds (Grey's End)
    The best Claremont Issue from his many returns to the X-Books. Bachalo's art is great and the Shi'ar Death Commandos designs are all amazing. We get Claremont at this tropiest 'make you care about them just as they are obviously going to die' for pretty much the entire Grey family.

    Excalibur #54 - Curiouser & Curioser
    Alan Davis both writing and penciling. It has all the silly Excalibur features in one issue, it's just a shame only the one member of Technet is in this issue.

    Echo ayone who's said X-Factor #87. Not a huge Peter David fan but that's just a fantastic 1 issue story.

    Uncanny X-Men #328 Psylocke Vs. Sabretooth
    I'm a huge Joe Mad fan and I loved his work on this book, but it's the story that makes it a favorite. Sabretooth got under Tabitha's skin and I knew he was talking shit just to be freed. I loved how Psylocke was ready for that fight-even though it didn't end as she anticipated. She was a true warrior in this book.

    X-Men #78 Psi-War Part 2 Psylocke Vs. Shadow King
    At this point, Psylocke was my favorite character. Shadow King talked so much shit to her and his commentary on Psylocke was so shady. But, in the end she showed him who was boss.

    House of X #4 X-Men Destroy Mother Mold
    I keep a 2nd copy of this just to re-read. The art is beautiful and the stakes are so high on this one (before we knew exactly what the Resurrection Protocols were). The Kurt and Logan scene was beautiful. Monet was a boss and it was sad to watch Jean be overpowered like that. The telepathic/hydrokinetic mind link was so cool to me.

    X-Men #30

    Its really hard to pick single issues as X-Men stories are seldom one offs. I would say the issue of X-Men when Moira dies.

    For me it's gotta be X-Men #7. The Crucible was just awesome and was the first I have been blown away by a comic since I was kid.

    The rogue storm issue of uncanny.
    Operation zero tolerance issue where they were taking the bomb out of cyclops.
    And for some reason the hint for xavier the very first giant size issue that bachalo drew with the new 05 like mutants. Loved it.

    Still two of my favorite pages. From X-men 360 by bachalo and seagle.
