When you’ve got amazing stories by Chris Claremont, excellent artwork by Dave Cockrum, and the astonishing debut of fan-favorite Paul Smith, what you’ve got is a mutant masterwork!
It starts off with an adventure in Belasco’s mysterious Limbo realm that leaves Colossus’ little sister Ilyana Rasputin aged from child to teenager in a moment. Then comes a classic tale of Professor X and Magneto in their younger days, before their philosophical fallout, teamed-up to take down Baron Strucker and Hydra. But the real action is the conclusion of the epic Brood Saga! Teamed with the Starjammers and Shi’ar, the X-Men, are in an all-out war for survival against the sleaziest parasites in outer space.
There’s also the debut of Carol Danvers as Binary, the return of Dracula, and a guest-star nod by the New Mutants, and to top it off, we’re also including the long-demanded Wolverine and Angel backup stories from Marvel Treasury Edition #26-27 and the Kitty Pryde classic from Special Edition X-Men #1.
