It’s with these challenges in mind that we’ve created Best Comic Books Ever (This Week), an ongoing guide curated by the ComicsAlliance staff. This is where new comics readers and seasoned Wednesday shoppers alike can find our picks of the best books the medium has to offer.

Even by X-Men standards we're rating a remarkable collection of X-Men today; a shape-shifting terrorist, a time-tossed gay teen, an Atlantean monarch, that one original X-Man that you totally forgot existed, and whatever the heck Doop is. But do any of them rate among the all-time greats?
