UNCANNY ORIGINS #1-14 (1996-1997)

Is this canon? Because it looks cartoonish and amateurish. I’m going to assume it is not canon and I’m not tagging all the characters from this book.

I didn’t read the issues all that closely, but I didn’t notice anything of particular interest. No dramatic retcons, no new revelations.

Most of the issues featured X-Men characters, but there were also some non-Xers (Daredevil, Hulk) and other surprising choices that were decidedly NOT mutant-oriented and also not big stars, like Firelord, Black Cat, and even Black Knight.

If you’ve got kids who want to get to know some Marvel characters, this is a decent place to start. (Although for some of the darker characters, you might want to prescreen.)
