The Uncanny X-Men # 268

Black Widow, Wolverine, and Captain AmericaWriter: Chris Claremont
Artist/Inker/Colorist: Jim Lee/Scott Williams/Glynis Oliver
Publisher: Marvel
Published: September 1990

This is Claremont and Lee at the top of their game - 90's style! Lee's art is busy action packed, with each panel looking just awesome. Added to that is Claremont's heavy dialogue, which makes this comic an actual read and not just a series of one liners over drawings (ie. anything produced these days). This is one of the comics where the $1.25 I paid was worth every cent.

The story is set in Madripoor and cuts between 1941 and 1990. In 1941 Cap and Logan are handing out some punishment to the Hand. In 1990, the same deal is underway, but now it's Wolverine, Jubilee, Psylocke, and the Black Widow handing out the just desserts.

Without going into too much detail, the two narratives overlap, and because it's a Claremont tale, you really need to read it to get just how great this comic is. They just don't make 'em like this anymore. Well, that being said, they didn't make a lot of them like this back then as well. Anyhoo, check some scans.
