There couldn't be 50 great SA X-Men covers. X-Men 1 through 48 suck.

Most of those on the list are "memorable" because they are major or minor keys and even the most casual fan has seen them scores if not hundreds or thousands of times ( FF #48 has be one of the weakest covers of the Kirby era). I would have liked to have seen more that are memorable because they are classic covers - the obvious criteria for including SS #4 and ASM #50.

 

The list should also be divided up into eras ( or more conveniently - decades) - unless it's a Best Marvel Cover of the Year 1961-2011 list, it's too big a period to adequately make such a list from, given the sheer amount of keys and changing styles throughout the era. I find Bronze and Copper Marvel covers generally lacking, but I know there are others who feel quite the opposite.

All I know is that there are more X-men and X-men related character covers than those overrated Spidey covers :baiting:

+1

 

That's why I consider the list to be a bit phoned in.  A memorable cover can stand on its own merits, there doesn't have to be an association with a first appearance or key storyline - or anything else, interior-wise.

FF12 has to be one of the greatest covers to make you want to turn that next page. They just don't make covers like that as hard as they may try and to not even make a list of 50 is unfathomable.

No list will ever satisfy everyone. This one is still pretty good and covers alot, no pun intended.

 

However, two omissions I'd note:

 

Invincible Iron Man #1

 

Fantastic Four #50 (although they have 48, 49, & 51)
