Rating: ***** ( 5 stars )
...Here I sit...alone! Now, for the first time, I realize how it must have been for the Professor all these long months...always apart, always alone...
This is an astonishing account of the major events of the X-Men history since its beginning to date (1981) narrated by not other than Scott Summers aka Cyclops!, the leader of the team. Told from his personal point of view, he takes the audience in an uncanny journey through the happiest and saddest moments. All done in one single issue! Definitely a marvelous reading.

I fought that monster durin' my first mission, as Wolverine, for Department "H". My first mission-- My only failure. I'd been sent to deal with the Hulk.
While, Professor X and Storm are doing their best efforts to make feel at home to the newest member in the X-Men, Kitty Pryde; Wolverine travels to Canada, to make peaces with his old friends, James MacDonald Hudson (Vindicator) and his wife, Heather Hudson. Nightcrawler signs up to go along with Wolverine.
When Wolverine and Nightcrawler are able to reach James MacDonald Hudson aka Vindicator, he is on an official mission of Alpha Flight, the Canadian government's sanctioned super-hero team. Alpha Flight is tracking a mysterious monster and the team is decimated due some members are away in another mission over USA, so Vindicator is having only Shaman and Snowbird. Soon enough, Wolverine knows that the monster has to be the Wendigo, which he has some reckoning to do, so he offered his help to find the monster.
DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
Uncanny X-Men #141 & #142

Our actions may not make things better--for humanity or mutantkind--but they cannot make them worse.
One of the most famous and celebrated stories of the X-Men titles, if not the best, or the only one able to compete against The Dark Phoenix saga, but taking in account that Days of Future Past was developed in only two comic book issues, that's something astonishing impressive!
Those "good ol' days" where creative teams aren't mandated by the publishing house to extend any storyline to 6 issues at least thinking already in the marketing of the trade-paperback. (Notice that here, Marvel needed to "fill up" the TPB edition with other issues to be to able to charge what they want for the TPB)
1980: Kitty Pryde is 13 and a half years old, making her the youngest student ever included into the X-Men team so far. She is the newest addition to the team. She is shy and sweet.
2013: Kate Pryde is 43 and a half years old, making her one of the very few mutant survivors after the Sentinels took over the country. She is the only hope to save humanity and mutantkind. She is outspoken and driven.
The Fantastic Four are dead. The Avengers are dead. The X-Men are mostly dead. And only like 5 mutants are still alive but living in concentration camps. The Sentinels are ruling USA.
A crucial moment, in 1980, was the trigger to this dark future, so the solution is clear... the past must be changed!
So a bold plan is forged to send the "conscience" of the old Kate Pryde to reach the body of the young Kitty Pryde, back in the past, to prevent that that future may ocurr.
Literally there was a "before" and an "after" in the X-Men's comic book history with the publication of this story.
Uncanny X-Men #143

Finally, they're all gone. Omigosh! What am I saying?! They are all gone! I'm all alone!
Shy and sweet Kitty Pryde is all alone in the X-Mansion, but soon enough she will have a lethal visit and she will have to deal with it all by herself!
A lonely remmant of the N'Garai monsters reaches the X-Mansion and it's up to Kitty to defend home against this nightmarish creature!
