1992’s issue 5 of X-Men from writer John Byrne delivered to us a story of Wolverine being captured by Omega Red and Fenris in their hunt for a long lost Carbonadium Synthesizer, Wolverine’s escape through the help of an unexpected ally, and then of course the X-Men who need to come and show up as well.

As per usual, penciller supreme Jim Lee and inking partner Scott Williams slapped together a terrific, detailed and thoroughly jaw-dropping action-packed cover for the issue, throwing us right into the middle of a proper knockdown-dragout battle between long time enemies, Wolverine and Omega Red!
