What was the scariest scene that you have read in any X-Men comic? This includes X-Men comics from Uncanny X-Men, Astonishing X-Men, X-Men and many more. Here are two scenes that stood out the most to me:

1) Jean Grey destroying the planets in the "Dark Phoenix Saga."

No Caption Provided

This was technically not a scary scene, but it was a scene that stood out to me for a long time as we see Jean Grey destroying planets when she becomes the Dark Phoenix in the "Dark Phoenix Saga." This was a pretty intense scene since the idea about destroying other planets is a frightening thought and having a super mutant destroying planets out of nowhere can be really intense to look at.

2) Kitty threatening to phase an axe through Colossus's head in "Astonishing X-Men"

If you had read Joss Whedon's run on "Astonishing X-Men" the "Torn" arc, then you'll definitely remember the scene where Kitty is affected by Emma Frost's hallucinations and there is this one nightmare sequence that Kitty has where she threatens to phase an axe through her lover, Colossus' head after Colossus let the X-Men take her baby son away from her. This scene was truly creepy and dark as you're wondering to yourself about what Kitty is capable of doing. Not to mention, she is threatening to phase an axe through her boyfriend's head! Now, that's dark! This scene is probably the scariest scene I have seen in Joss Whedon's run of "Astonishing X-Men" since everything felt so real and Kitty can be really scary when she's mad (at least in this dream sequence).

Those are my two scenes so far, but you can name a scene that was shocking, scary, disturbing and creepy to you.

Mine was not exactly a scene. I really just find the Phalanx to be scary. The first time i've read about them, they seem to be unkillable. I remember the issues and it was Yukio and Storm being chased by the Phalanx and Gambit came. after reading those issues, i was thinking that if they were real and looking for me, i don't think i can escape from them. It's just scary to imagine them as real creatures chasing after you.

Hmm, can't remember the issue but I believe Wolverine temporarily becomes something similar to a Brood-like creature. Read it when I was a lot younger and it freaked me out a bit.

Wing's Death in Joss Whedon's run of "Astonishing X-Men" was extremely disturbing, especially when Danger started controlling his dead body, yikes!!!

Yeah, I was upset when Nightcrawler died. He was such a great character.

4) Colossus beating up Ord in "Astonishing X-Men"

It's more awesome than scary, but imagine having a large and very angry steel man pummeling you to the ground! Not to mention, Colossus' expression on his face when he was beating up Ord is a bit scary...

Seems like What Ifs involving the X-Men are pretty terrifying...and I got one!

The What If Inferno issue where Wolverine eats a human baby was very disturbing.

A more recent one was when Angel's wings are torn off in the last X-Force series. The art was very creepy. 8 (

Killing is not something that I want to see in a Superhero, the x-fans are missing the point, what a Superhero is meant to be... actually I alawys heard things like "Batman should just KILL the joker", "Spider-man should kill the villains", "a real hero kills"... for me that page is sick, heroes don't kill...

I know Heroes shouldn't kill but at this point I think Batman (or any member of the Bat family) should take out the Joker that's my one exception on the heroes shouldn't kill rule

The joker character doesn't make sense, I like what Allan Moore did with the character in the Killing Joke, he was a human, and I undertood that version of the character, but the other versions are just crap, you should not kill the joker, he is crazy, comicbooks are meant to be an example of what the people should be, to improve themselves as people, and people like the Joker doesn't exist in the real life, for that reason is an inperfect and DUMB character.

Your logic makes since there are very few good versions of the Joker and almost none that can be related to or achieved, but I just want them to kill him because his body counts several thousand by now and it doesn't make since to just let him run around. I don't know that I agree that Joker is a bad charecter I do agree that at least hopefully there are no people like him, in the real world and that in that since he doesn't fit the purpose of DC comics but a well written Joker can be a really fun read and the fact that he is supposed to represent the antithesis to Batman makes him a intresting literary device

Dude ur taking this a little too seriously!! "Heroes shouldn't kill" I know that, it's written in the definition of a superhero in the dictionary... but that scan of Kitty taking Emma's heart was priceless giving their past history!! Plus it was a "What if" story so it wasn't cannon or anything!!
