"Knowing" about the X-men is knowing the futility of trying to keep track of a spaghetti timeline where everything changes completely at arbitrary points.  Comic book continuity would make MINITRUTH envious.

I actually have an interest in this. I have never read a comic book, sans some second hand Sgt. Rock stuff when I was a kid. I enjoy the movies but don't know the under-pingings that aren't in the movies.

Too bad I can't read half the article because of the floating social media flag that covers half the page. adblock/noscript does a number on that page.

Stopped reading in 1990. I just know that the Sentinels have been around almost since the beginning.

That chart is pretty accurate except there needs to be a blue dotted line between Kitty and Iceman now (which just ended), and...I'm not sure how the teen versions of the Original Five would fit, but there'd be a blue dotted line between Teen Jean and Teen Beast.  Also, you could make the argument that there should be a purple dotted line between Jean Grey and Emma Frost, and probably one between Emma and Rachel.

Who keeps greening Action A Go Go links? They're on the "Den of Geek" scale of crappiness.

Even Cracked looks good by comparison.

Legion was the inbred result of Prof X and Haller?

Thought dude was psychic enough not to do THAT. Ewwww

What an odd point to stop reading X-men. The biggest X-men and maybe biggest comic ever came out the next year. Wasn't the animated series almost around that time too?

That's like a Red Sox fan saying, "Ya know, I stopped following the team back in 2003. They just never drew me back in."

Yes.  And then I bought the whopping 4 issues that comprise Days of Future Past for $2.

/X-Men fan since the early 80s with the Phoenix Must Die issue.

Oooooo, classic Liefeld cover!  Missing or badly drawn feet, ridiculously large thighs & biceps, characters moving at angles that make no sense (is Cannonball going to piledrive Wolfsbane into the ground?  How is Strong Guy running with him twisting his waist like that?), rictus grins for faces, etc.

I've probably read every issue up to #227 (just looked up where I stopped.) I grew bored with the writing and art work, to be honest. There were also a lot of "X"-titles floating around at the time -- I didn't have the patience to keep up, and the cover prices seemed to be inflating rapidly.

/yeah, I know $1.50 doesn't seem like much now. But that's also what a pack of smokes cost back in the day.

That's Larry Stroman, not Liefeld if I'm not mistaken.

I left after inferno and they were all dead and went through the siege perilous and they were hanging out with some abbo and nannybot was taking care of them and it was just maybe wolverine and jubilee hanging out and this makes even less sense than when I said fark it to the x-men.

You are correct   http://notblogx.blogspot.com/2007/09/x-factor-77-april-1992.html

My bad.  Apparently, Liefeld's influence spread for some unknown reason.

I don't get the whole, "let's bring our younger selves into the present day!" idea. Won't that cause numerous paradoxes? If Teen Beast dies, then Henry McCoy never lives to create the cure to the Legacy Virus. If Teen Scott dies, Cable isn't born. I swear, Joey Cheese doesn't seem to give a crap anymore. Who cares if it makes sense or not, as long at it creates hype and sells issues, amirite?
