The release of the time-travel arc “Days of Future Past” in 1980’s Uncanny X-Men #141-142 opened a broad door for comic stories of heroes from the future traveling to prevent the wrongs of their past — and our future. And artists have, time and time again, paid tribute to John Byrne and Terry Austin’s cover for Issue 141 showing a gray-haired Wolverine and an older Kitty Pryde — Kate Pryde, in this instance — with their back against a wall of wanted posters.

Here’s a look at the origin and some homages to that classic image from sources ranging from superhero titles to manga to webcomics.
