9. “X-Men” No. 94 & 95 (1975)  The Chris Claremont era begins in these Dave Cockrum-illustrated issues that immediately followed “Giant-Size” No. 1. He scripted these two from Len Wein’s plot before taking over full writing duties in No. 96, and didn’t pause for 17 years. Team lineup upheaval continues: Sunfire splits, as do original members Jean Grey (who kisses Scott and exchanges “I love you’s” on her way out), Bobby Drake and Warren Worthington, plus Alex Summers and Lorna Dane. As the new team starts to come together, it loses one of its own – Thunderbird dies in battle in No. 95. (Gil Kane and Dave Cockrum / Marvel)
