Marvel has really gotten a lot out of a story line that was surprisingly only two issues of Uncanny X-Men back in 1981. The Chris Claremont/John Byrne classic has spawned numerous spinoffs and tie-ins and of course the best X-Men movie.
(On a side note, the “future” in the original story was 2013. Man I’m old.)
Unfortunately, we also got the Secret Wars tie-in/sequel Years of Future Past. I currently have it ranked as 47th out of 50 in our Secret Wars Power Rankings. Tom would place it last. As might Ryan if he hadn’t stopped reading it in disgust. I’ve already looked at issue 1 and after the break I will finish the series with Years of Future Past #2-#5.
