UNCANNY X-MEN #35
Spider-Man and the X-Men have their first official team-up in this swinging-60's classic! A strange robot attacks an unwitting Peter Parker, but that's only the beginning of his troubles when the X-Men mistakenly believe Spidey's a part of the mysterious "Factor Three" group which has kidnapped Professor X! How can the Wallcrawler prove his innocence? And can the young teenagers find their mentor in time to save him from whatever menace has him captive? Before catching X-MEN/SPIDER-MAN #1, witness the beginnings of a beautiful friendship right here!
UNCANNY X-MEN #140
Wolverine and Nightcrawler, alongside Shaman, Vindicator and Snowbird of Alpha Flight, must go against the fearsome Wendigo deep in the Canadian woodland! The uneasy allies, who only a short time before faced each other as enemies, must put a stop to Wendigo's rampage before he claims yet another victim—but can the two teams work together long enough to succeed? The action never stops in this timeless mini-epic from writer Chris Claremont and artist John Byrne!
INCREDIBLE HULK #336
The original X-Men, now going by X-Factor, face off against the Green Goliath in this issue from early-on in writer Peter David's seminal run on the INCREDIBLE HULK! Superstar artist Todd McFarlane brings this action-filled encounter to life as X-Factor tries to contain a rampaging gray Hulk. But there's more than meets the eye, as a shadowy group within S.H.I.E.L.D. has some less-than-friendly plans for the Gray Giant, and X-Factor may have just unwittingly delivered him right into their hands…
ULTIMATE X-MEN #37
Wolverine! Daredevil! Spider-Man! What, you want more? These three heroes unite to stop a cadre of gun-toting crazies! Why those baddies seem to be gunning for Logan, however, is a whole 'nother barrel of worms, and one which our favorite Canadian will get to the bottom of if it kills him! Writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist David Finch give you more awesome action than any brain should be able to contain as three of the Ultimate Universe's biggest stars fight for Wolverine's life in the streets of New York!
X-MEN v2 #175
The X-Men travel to the African nation of Niganda, where civil unrest and strange crocodile-like monsters plague the citizens. With tensions already running high in the team itself, our heroes have their work cut out for them if they hope to get to the bottom of what's plaguing the Nigandans…and when the Black Panther shows his masked face, things take an unexpected turn! The first issue of a four-part crossover with BLACK PANTHER, "Wild Kingdom" brought the King of Wakanda and the X-Men together in an unforgettable crossover that also helped plant the seeds for T'Challa and Storm's wedding!
