    X-Men 275 is PERFECT pre-SJW stuff. Deathbird takes down a limited (she acknowledges this) Wolverine. Jubilee agonizes over Psylocke's figure and confidence. Rogue asks for a gun when her powers fail and makes an impassioned plea to a wounded member of a persecuted minority to not be a villain. He declines, which WAS seen as a character flaw and not anti-semtism from the writer.
    These are the kinds of comics that made fans out of people who liked the stories and identified with the characters. Remember those days? Good times.

    Now this is comic book "Art", not that flash animation you find in modern Marvel.

    I miss this era SOOOOO much. Writers like Claremont and Michelinie told such great stories. Hell, they basically built the framework for all the modern marvel based films today (i know they didn't create the heroes but they created the actual story lines that Hollywood wont let go of)

    That's why I still get some of the Marvel Omnibuses. I'm hoping for a complete run of Claremont X-Men in omnibus one day. Unfortunately X-Men has been far more miss than hit since 2000.

    Lee/Claremont X-Men was the shit. I do miss the 90's in some respects. Thanks for this.

    Jim Lee made the X-men into the ultimate fantasy characters that we know and love today. Every hero and heroine was a sleek supermodel (even Nightcrawler!) with an edgy unexplored mutant power who could potentially fall in love with Rogue on any page!

    I had that X-Men 275 book it was one the greatest book issues ever the art and story is awesome, Jim Lee one of the greatest artist ever now the art work and Chris Clearmont was an awesome story teller now the art and stories today are crap ,books like this had spirit, books like this book show action and emotion this comic book is the standard that should be followed. And at the end of the book it was the Skrulls not the Shadow King.

    Ah… the Russian submarine that Magneto sunk…

    And when Magneto saved the earth from a nuclear war between the USA and the Soviet Union.

    He had every right to sink that sub.

    Classic issue. Bought it off the stands. Claremont and Lee were an outstanding team. My favorite X-Men combo after Claremont/Byrne.

    YES!!!!
    One of my all time favorite books!
    Got it when it came out and it blew me away. Made me a Jim Lee fan and started regularly getting every X-Men comic after this.
    I remember just sitting and looking at that cover for literally an hour – my dad thought I was weird.

    Gil Kane's Tomb of Dracula, anything by John Buscema, were great comics in the 70s. The characters were still great into the 70s and 80s. Everything started going off the rails in the 90s, then seemed to get better in the 00s, and now seems to be crashing into oblivion in the 10s.

    That was an awesome issue. Loved Jim Lee's run on Xmen.

    Jim Lee's Art looks so good here. Got a X-Men 1-7 and I was kinda Disappointed by his art… you got to pick em when they are fresh and bring the A Game to it…. but yeah, drawing comics is hard work!

    wasn't the Shadow King. they were those GREEN ALIEN guys who could shape shift. forgot their name. but yeah, NO ONE writes like Claremont…no one. LOVED his X-men run. the last story of his that I read was X-men #3 and then he left and I never read another one of his writings…lost track of what he did after that…those 90's books he wrote was the peak of the X-men stories as far as I'm concern….

    How is this an Xmen/Marvel comic? Cmon,
    No one talked about being gay the entire time, or just having a manish looking woman internally monologue the entire time about how great she is? There are attractive women and the men look like badasses? And nobody was a 15 yr old diversity hire genius?

    I miss this era. However, Mim did a video on Uncanny Avengers #28 for Legacy and it was actually a good book with good chemistry between Rogue & The Wasp as well as Beast & Wonder Man. I may pick it up. I miss comics like this X-Book that had great chemistry with the team.

    275, 276, 277 of. Uncanny X-men are, in my opinion, the best example of what makes the X-Men great. I truly believe these three issues are highly underappreciated. Claremonts last masterpiece on his original run. His last X-Men masterpiece came during his third and most recent run the Uncanny book, the issue was titled '24 seconds'.)

    This is a masterpiece of writing and drawing as far as action book. It's Diehard/Aliens/Matrix-level. Jim Lee never got this good again

    Probably one of my favorite issues of all time. Jim Lee at the top of his game. Claremont just killing it. the pacing and the layouts allow for storytelling without cramming the art. That is Jim Lee's brilliance there. I have to go back to Byrne to find an issue I like better.

    Even when X-Men was about the conflict and discrimination between humans and mutants, their spirit and goal was always to promote the idea that everyone should get along. They were NEVER SJWs posing as victims while promoting conflict, resentment and bigotry. In fact, not even Magneto was like an SJW, since he was honest. I think the worst about those leftist activists who took over the American entertainment industries is how much they lie and twist the meaning of things like justice and tolerance.

    The Claremont / Lee era on Uncanny X-Men is arguably the greatest run in comics ever. This is what Marvel should be striving to get back to at all costs.
