  -I love this cover--Take that, short stuff!
-Hmmmm. How old is Jean supposed to be a this point? I didn't give a sh*t what my parents did or thought from about age 18 on.
-Man, I'd looove to get my hands on those sweet Farah and Johnny T posters!
-Cap'n Maple Leaf was a bit of a pushover.

  Storm looks good in her bikini ****

  rating based on a bikini, huh? so I guess every 90's issue staring Psylocke gets *****? OK, make it any 90's issue, because sometimes it seems to me like artists from that time didn't know how to draw a woman character in anything else than bikini




OK. With the exception of Agatha Harkness...





And Aunt May...




At least I hope so...

  The X-Men can never get a break uh? I see this story as one of Chris's "seed issues" He plants these sub-plots that will develop in the near future! The Phoenix's storyline gets better and interesting with every issue!

  Did Guardian just pop out of the ground?
Much of Claremont's lauded character development in this issue.. It's a shame that it feels so heavy-handed by today's standards. It's also a shame that he still writes like this...

  Department H worries about being picked up by radars, and yet they send an operative wearing the flag as a uniform. Way to go big brains!

  The beauty of Claremont's work on X-Men is not that every issue is a 5 star masterpiece. The beauty is the consistency; there are never any 1 or 2 star issues.

  It's nice to see the X-Men taking a break, but they barely get their toes in the water before they get attacked. I liked the scene where Nightcrawler and Cyclops almost have a bonding moment.

  First references to weapon X, Alpha Flight, and Storm naked in her nursery. What more could a nerd ask for, besides less hair?

  For someone who is supposed to be so awesome, I wish we could see Wolverine hold his own 1v1 instead of the team having to bail him out. Despite this, still a 5star ish.
