"God Loves; Man Kills" was Claremont at his best. He may not be great anymore, but in his Heyday, Claremont was an awesome story teller.

I wasn't a fan of the X-Treme version at all though.

Claremont and Joss Whedon are the ONLY X-men writers I ever really loved. Nobody else was ever nearly as good.

I wasn't a fan of GLMKII at all, but the original was phenomenal.

That was the X-Treme X-Men story mentioned above.

God Loves, Man Kills is one of my favorite comic story lines. Probably top 5, easy. It really just cuts to the heart of the X-men and explains exactly what they are all about. Being a huge fan of X-books in general, this is must-read material. Off the top of my head, I think this is the most hard hitting, real, comic book that I have ever read. I have to agree with Brainiac that this is Claremont at his absolute best.
