Quote:Did you collect X-men comics in the 80's and/or 90's?

I did not collect X-men in the 90's though I bought them every once in a while when there was some kind of event. I couldn't afford to buy every issue. My focus was on the FF which was a single book compared to X-men which seemed like countless books.
I really don't know why X-men was so popular. It always seemed like it's own thing to me. Like there was Marvel and then there was X-men. It was like it's own club.
I like the All New X-men Claremont and Byrne really knocked it out of the park and Claremont was still knocking it out of the park for a while even after Byrne and him parted. But somewhere along the line the wheels sort of came off the book. Not sure when it was though. Certainly by the time Magneto was a good guy it felt like a completely different book to me.
