19. “Uncanny X-Men” No. 172 & 173 (1983)  In the two-part “To Have and Have Not,” Wolverine is to wed Mariko Yashida. You might guess from the blade in the invitation through Logan’s heart on Paul Smith’s cover for No. 172 that things don’t go well. There’s trouble from Viper and Silver Samurai, and Mariko calls off the wedding as it’s about to begin. Poor Logan. Also, the team meets Cyclops’ new girlfriend, Madelyne Pryor, a dead ringer for Jean Grey. (Talk about a complicated relationship: That pair gets married soon after, in No. 175; he’s away when she gives birth to their son, Nathan; Scott abandons them when Jean reemerges; Madelyne is revealed to be a Mr. Sinister-created clone of Jean and becomes Goblin Queen …) (Marvel)
