Juggernaut was the first X-Men villain I came to like and appreciate, though it was not because of an X-Men comic. No, I began to enjoy him when he appeared in the classic Spider-Man tale “Nothing Can Stop The Juggernaut” in Amazing Spider-Man #229 and 230. It was only then that I figured out my love for Cain Marko, and I have since snagged a nice copy of X-Men #12 for my collection. Mine is raw, however, and not a CGC copy like this one that is taking bids at Heritage Auctions. A 4.0; this one is currently sitting at $420. At first glance, this copy also looks a bit better than a 4.0 as well. Check it out below for yourself.
