Amazing Spider-Man is still in the midst of the Clone Saga, and I was still loving it. Spider-Man : Maximum Clonage Alpha & Omega are covered,Amazing Scarlet Spider 1 & 2, Amazing Spider-Man Annual 1996 and Ben Reilly becomes Spider-Man. Which felt longer but only lasted from 407 through 418. Amazing Spider-Man Annual 1997 is also covered, as is the Minus One issue. Spider-Man ends with the Identity Crisis storyline.
Iron Man gets to be written by the Legend That Lives, Kurt Busiek! Iron Man / Captain America Annual 1998 is covered and Annual 1999. Also the Wizard 1/2 issue. Joe Quesada’s excellent, Mask in the Iron Man, is reviewed. Probably still my favorite Iron Man story, and could easily be adapted to a film. Annual 2000 is the last annual reviewed in this issue.
Uncanny X-Men have the Apocalypse The Twelve and Ages of Apocalypse storylines. Annual 1999. Kitty’s final issue is 380, then Revelations kicked in, which was Claremont’s big return to the X-Men. Kitty was moved over to X-Men 100 and then, hinted at in 109 and seen in 110. The First X-Men film came out but the books don’t try to tie in with the film. Dream’s End kicks off in 388, which will cost us Moira MacTagert and Senator Kelly. Uncanny X-Men 2000. Then, one of my favorite issues of Uncanny, of all time – Uncanny X-Men 390 – The Death of Colossus, it was so super sweet! 391 is also great, with Scott and his father going camping together. Eve of Destruction follows that and next, Grant Morrison takes over (New) X-Men and Joe Casey gets Uncanny. Chuck Austen takes the title, starting with 410.
There are fourteen issues of this series but I think I got the four that I wanted.
