13. “The Uncanny X-Men” No. 141-142 (1981)  Readers knew something was up when they saw “Kate Pryde” instead of “Kitty Pryde.” The phasing-through-solid-matter 13-year-old mutant girl they knew was now older, with a face that had lived through things, walking past the graves of Charles Xavier and many more. It’s 2013, and the Mutant Control Act and Sentinels have led to millions of mutant deaths. Conspiring with fellow survivors, Kate is sent back to 1980 – and into her teenage self – to prevent this future. The two-part “Days of Future Past” from the legendary team of Claremont and Byrne is enduringly popular. (Note: “The Uncanny,” which had sometimes appeared over “X-Men” on the cover, sticks from No. 139 forward, and the series’ previous issues have been retroactively called “The Uncanny X-Men.”) (John Byrne / Marvel)
