Kitty Pryde and Wolverine #1-6 (1984-1985)

Kitty’s dad is in trouble with the Yakuza, who are using black magic father, so Kitty and Wolverine go to Japan to kick some Yakuza butt.  It’s a perfectly fine story, albeit a little too plot-heavy, but it’s ultimately forgettable except for the fact that this is where Kitty changes her codename from Sprite to Shadowcat.  And that change, thankfully, didn’t last forever.
