    Default Which is your favourite era of X-Men / other mutant titles?

    The first issue of Uncanny X-Men I ever picked up was #174 and I was instantly hooked. I can't explain what it was that chimed with me but I wanted to know as much about the team as I could find out, so picked up quite a few back issues / reprints.

    Even though the Mutant Massacre resulted in a big change to the status quo, I still remained a fan because the new team members and writing kept me interested.

    For me, the rot set in after the team went through the Siege Perilous and everything I had enjoyed ceased to exist. I stayed with the title, mainly buying out of habit, until Bishop arrived but that was the point I finally gave up. (The introduction of the second title and the plethora of other mutants titles was also a factor).

    Since then, I have dipped in to the title sporadically but the only run I have really enjoyed since is X-Men #187 - 205 (collected in the Marauders / Blinded by the Light trades).

    The current Krakoa stuff does absolutely nothing for me.

    So, my favourite X-Men era is Uncanny #167 - 251 and New Mutants #18-62.

    How about you?

    Generation X, from the introduction in the Phalanx Covenant until Hama took over, remains my favorite comic "era" ever.

    After that it's Morrison's run, if we're talking strictly about mutant centric titles.

    The early to mid 90s.

    The period from the end of the Dark Phoenix sage until the start of X-Factor, so around Uncanny 140-200, plus the first 54 issues of New Mutants. X-Factor and the return of Jean is when editorial mandates started to get in the way of the stories and characters and started to bring the line down, and it's never recovered from that. Plus New Mutants fell off a cliff in quality after Claremont left, and even Claremont's writing on Uncanny began to decline by the time Inferno was done. But for 5 years it really seemed like the line could evolve into anything and go anywhere before editorial realities ensured the circling back to the status quo no matter how badly it affected the characters.

    Probably this Krakoa era, it's maybe one of my favourite eras in comics ever.
    Morrison era was pretty great too

    Rise and fall of the Outback era so from the Mutant Massacre until Adjectiveless X-Men #1.

    Honorable mentions… X-Force/X-Statix and PAD’s X-Factor…

    Generation X cause that's when I got into the comics.
    Outback era, the first Vol of New Mutants, Morrison. Academy X/New X-Men. Gillen's Uncanny are my other general faves.

    This is similar for me, but I'd stretch it out slightly further to around #300. I couldn't wait for the next issue to come out that whole period, I was really lucky, I was the right age to be absolutely dazzled by the All New All Different team right from the start. At the time there wasn't another comic on the rack that came close to that excitement, except maybe Miller's Daredevil part of the way through it.

    Outback.
    This new era is great, but dropping the ball in some areas

    #1. The old school Claremont run, all of it, including his New Mutants, Excalibur, Wolverine, etc, all of it. The best.

    #2. The Xtreme/New Claremont/Morrison Era. Very interesting takes, nice modernization of classic tropes.

    #3. HoX/PoX/Hickman run. Its wildly uneven, but incredibly ambitious. I wish he didn't have to share with so many other writers. Something more concise like his FF or Avengers runs may have been the better play. Still in progress.... we'll see.

    Honorable mentions to Generation X/NeXt, 90's X-Force, Pacheco-era 90's X-Men, Alan Davis Excalibur, Haven-era X-Factor, and Inferno-era X-Terminators.
    Let the flames destroy all but that which is pure and true!
