No, wait. X-Men’s Storm?!? Er… Huh… Well… Does Adastra in Africa count?

Gambit’s introduction back when Nanny regressed Storm’s age is a favorite of mine. We didn’t know yet how annoying a character Gambit would turn out to be…

So, yeah, basically anything Claremont wrote. hahahaha

Important bit of clarification that will affect my vote (and others, I suspect): Are Lifedeath and Lifedeath II one story or two separate stories?

I have a strong fondness for mohawk Storm. Hope she is represented well on this list.

Pedro ,, I don’t think “supposed to be” counts

Claremont is known for dangling long-running subplots (I’m not certain if he resolved all the subplots started in New Mutants 5 and 6) but there are plenty of stories centred on 1-4 issues plus stories in annuals and the extra back-ups in classic XMen and…
