Fantastic Four vs. X-Men (1987) comic books
"Are you Sure?!" Story by Chris Claremont. Art by Jon Bogdanove and Terry Austin. Story continued from Uncanny X-Men #312. In the wake of the horrible events of the Mutant Massacre, the X-Men's youngest member, Kitty Pryde, is injured and her own mutant born ability to phase through solid objects threatens her life. With no where left to turn, the outlaw heroes go to the supposed smartest man alive for help, Reed Richards. However, a secret has been discovered that could tear Marvel's First Family apart. Plus, why does the Richards' son, Franklin, keep having precognitive dreams of Wolverine slaughtering his family, and what does the nefarious Doctor Doom have to do with all of this? NOTE: This is without a doubt one of my all time favorite stories. It's continuity heavy and character driven, and it's a darn good read. - Odinson, Lonestar Comics Archivist Cover price $1.50.
