A joyous trip back to my youth and desire to be an X-Man

When I was young my parents shopped at a grocery store where the owner was kind enough to allow me to read comic books while my parents shopped. This allowed me to read the comics in this collection when they originally appeared. The X-Men was one of my favorites and I walked around with my eyes squinted, trying to be Cyclops and jumping feet first onto things trying to mimic the Beast.
Therefore, this book was a very pleasurable trip back to my childhood and the world of fantasy at a level that only a child can perform. So many joyous memories, especially number 13, which introduced the Juggernaut. It was so engaging that I can still remember how my mother had to come back into the store and drag me out before I could finish it. For one full week I fretted and fussed over thinking about how it would turn out. My memory was so vivid that I even remembered some of the dialog in the captions. The original X-Men remain one of my favorite comic book series; I remembered every single one of these issues when I read them again.
