Why Essential Notes

The Proteus storyline, which this issue begins, has lasting impacts on the X-Men and more so on Professor X. Because of this the entire story arc is an essential read.

Issue Review

No action, no fights, just plenty of story. And character moments, particularly for Jean.

Chris Claremont finally pulls the trigger on Scott finding out that Jean is alive, but only AFTER something has happened to her. And everyone else on Muir Island.

While tension builds on the island, we get some foreshadowing of another villain, another threat...

10/10

  This is definitely 4 stars issue. Except for one page. The great Magneto/Scarlt Witch + Quicksilver reveal is one of my favourite 80's moment in comic books. It shows how much this is differnet form previous (but also present) comic books: no flashy flashback, no editor's note, no story retelling. Just Magneto & picture of woman You've all seen before. It's like Claremont trying to say "Hey, reader. You are not stupid. You have all the facts. Figure it all out". That's something extremely rare. I miss that.

  I love this issue! The story line here has leaped in bounds! Every scene was important! Under Claremont's run I never looked for the action just the drama and the story. By the way this issue has a lot of nods to classic X-Men! Such as Magneto (who made a quick cameo here) looking at their first battle scene from issue 1 (remember that!?) and Jason Wyngarde projecting a image of Jean Grey from that same issue! And talking about Jean, she's really freaking me out with all this Phoenix stuff! And why in recent issues, the book opens up with the X-Men in the Danger Room; don't these mutants have a life or something?

  -Good stuff! I've read this issue at least five times and it still delivers great development and tension.

  The panel featuring Beast hoisting Scott into the air out of joy was perfect. Filler or not, I really enjoyed this one. Can't wait to see what happens next.

  Everything's coming back together. Claremont is tying up loose ends and doing it well. What better than imminent peril to bring everyone back together again? I sense an incoming zombie story. I hope that's not the case.

  I had to read this one twice, there's too much awesome contained: further teasing of the Hellfire Club, Magneto on Asteroid M with even better dialogue... Mutant X, and the X-Men learning finally the truth about each other's fate from their previous battle with Magneto. All this, and a freaked out Night Crawler thinking he's seen das gheist!
