Power Rankings June 1994
This is another weird month, with most of the series "on pause" ahead of the crossover and featuring guest or fill-in art, yet at the same time, each series' issue more or less falls in line with previous rankings.
1. Uncanny X-Men #315
2. X-Men (vol. 2) #35
Both breath-takers before the crossover, Uncanny does its best to give some context to Colossus' defection, while X-Men returns Cyclops & Phoenix from their honeymoon. The latter probably has the stronger art, but the former a better script.
3. Cable #14
4. X-Factor #105
5. X-Force #37
Cable jumps a few spots on the back of strong Steve Skroce art and a fun issue with callbacks to "Inferno" and Madelyne Pryor, while X-Factor beats out X-Force this month thanks to art from a young Bryan Hitch.
6. Excalibur #80
7. Wolverine #84
Excalibur once again ekes out of the bottom spot on the back of narrative relevance, as the "Phalanx"-setting up "Douglock Chronicles" concludes.
