Cover: The cover on this one is interesting. On it is the Sub-Mariner going after the X-Men. I know a little about him. Mostly that he was a villain for the Fantastic Four and I remember him always feeling like a semi-evil version of Aquaman. It looks like he is jumping from a giant magnet […]Read more "Uncanny X-Men #6 “Sub-Mariner Joins the Evil Mutants” 7.4.1964"
For the second time (right in a row) the Brotherhood of Mutants has made it onto the cover. Right away I see that the X-Men are coming to save Angel who is trapped behind glass.

It was kind of what I wanted and expected to get when I decided to start reading the comics. Right off the start we’re still […]Read more "Uncanny X-Men #2 “No One Can Stop the Vanisher”11/2/1963"
I am super excited to get into the X-Men series. I decided to start from the start, the very start. I have always been into the X-Men, growing up with the video games, cartoons, and movies. I never really had a chance to get into the comics until recently. I want to read it from […]Read more "Uncanny X-Men #1 9/10/63"
