Uncanny X-Men #25

It's funny how quickly the X-Men books can turn around and recapture my imagination when they actually stick to the ground where they're strongest. Uncanny X-Men 25, for instance, focuses in on the story (told through the dead man's own words) of a younger Charles Xavier and a difficult moment where he was forced to compromise his ideals and essentially neuter a destructive young mutant's powers for the greater good. This, of course, sparks off a debate among the current X-Men, several of whom are understandably devastated to learn that the justice they've been fighting for their entire lives was bendable even by the man who raised them to believe what they believe. Add in the fact that we already have disparate factions forced into the same room and there's just this lovely sense of tension that kept me turning the pages and wishing for more when I'd hit the back cover.

Favorite Moment: "Just this one last time: To me, my X-Men!"
