Best moment:

Worst? Onslaught, AvX and Schism. Every single moment of those arcs. EVERY SINGLE MOMENT.

This is the best. It's the most beautiful dialogue I've ever read, I got goose pimples reading it.

This is and the entire event is the worst thing ever.

This has to be one of the all time lows for the X-men..... When Angel swoop down to pick up Husk, and then they decided to do the nasty up in the sky in front of Husk's mom! God Damn it Chuck Austen, what the $#@% is wrong with you. That's just gross! It's one thing to make a crap couple like Angel and Husk, but that! That is just unforgivable!

I can't decide if these are the absolute best and worst or not, but I can't help but agree with the sentiment.

Agree with Emma and Kitty talking to each to other to be one of the best moments in the comic!!!

How can Hope & Scarlet Witch punching out Cyclops be consider a worst moment? That dick had it coming since the moment he cheated on Jean.

Thats one of my best moment along with the entire Dark Angel Saga in UXF.

Worst moment: Greg Land on art.

Once again we have people showing intelligence levels , by language use, and disrespecting characters(Cyclops) whom they have little to no knowledge of. The sickness continues. Get off that boat, build and ride your own boat! Judging Cyke is old news, flip the page!

Worst? 

  • AvX
  • Schism
  • All New X-Men
  • Gillen's Uncanny
 
Best? 
 
So much character development in this run, and all of it culminating is this beautiful moment.

 

 
And then this is just pure awesome;

In X-History in general

Best?

That come to the top of my head right now:

X-Men #25: Wolverine losing his adamantium to Magneto. bear with me... what started as Peter David making a joking suggestion at an editorial meeting turned into what was, honestly, a really, really good issue. From the quotes used to the sad finality of Xavier making the decision that Erik had to be stopped, to the way it showed that Jean and Logan loved each other on a deep level regardless of the marriage to Scott... it was a powerful issue, IMO.

Also: Whedon's run on Astonishing. Loved the characterizations.

Old Uncanny X-Men back in the outback. These were some cool stories. And the cummulation of Wolverine crucified by the Reavers? Awesome

X-Force vol. 3

Worst?

Cancelation of New X-Men.

Devolution of certain characters (Hellion, etc) and the exclusion of some to mere background status (Dust, Cess, Santo, Surge).

Liu's X-23 #17-#19. Ugh.

X-Men: Deadly Genesis. I mean... really?

Ending of Necrosha.

AvX

Uncanny Avengers and Red Skull's new powahz.

Definitely agree about Joss Whedon's run on Astonishing X-Men being a great moment! All the characters were so wel developed in his run!

More of the Best: X-23 dumping Hellion, anything from Whedon's astonishing run, and Wolverine decapitating Magneto/Xorn.

Here's another great moment!

One of the worst moments of X-Men soap opera history, was when Mystique was trying to seduce Gambit by posing as a underage student name Foxx. Just to break up Rogue and Gambit, Because she felt Rogue was to good for him. I think that story arc gave me brain cancer......

#21 Posted by tomchu (522 posts) - - Show Bio

@judasnixon: When did that happen?

This issue was literally pure awesome. Because in the 80s, two men getting drunk and fighting for no apparent reason on a Bro's night out and Wolverine actually teaching Colossus a goddamn lesson was a plot line.

Mess or not, the scene is hot, imo. So it can't be THAT bad.

Best: LifeDeath

Lifedeath was just a perfect story. You can't even say anything bad about it. 100% classic

Worst: Daredevil Vs Psylocke

Psylocke should have mopped the floor with DD. Her powerset beats his any day of the week.

As much as I drink, which is a lot, I will never be able to erase this from my mind. Ladies and gentlemen I give you Jubilee's Fairytale Theater. Excuse me, I think I just threw up on my shoes..........

Yeah, there were some moments during Astonishing X-Men that were very touching, and Kitty/Emma dialogue is one of them, with a few words Whedon described perfectly the relationship between them and the evolution of both the characters.

Yeah, and when Jean kissed Logan and made ​​Scott feel constantly torn because of her hormones it was only a fleeting moment lol. Anyway, Scott has shown more courage and self-sacrifice than Wanda or Hope, and he's done more for his people than both of them, or even Wolverine or Captain America, they deserved that punch, not him.

Amen to that Scott is the messiah not hope

I was in the bus one day and rememberd this storyline and how much it sucked, yet I agree it is a hot moment...someone should make a compedium of x-men hot moments in this forum...
