Kitty and Kurt were gravely injured during Mutant Massacre, and they were still recovering when the X-Men took on the Trickster and “died” during Fall of the Mutants. They escaped sharing their teammates’ fates, but now they think their friends are dead and they have to forge a new path on their own. It will be fucking great to see these two back in action, finally, after being sidelined for so long, because honestly they are two of the best members of the X-Men. But before we get going too fast here, let us just take a closer look at what’s going on in this brilliant dream sequence Kitty is having.
Colossus is in the background there taking part in an elicit game of poker and smoking like a forest fire while that noob Havok is studying the script.
Dazzler is giving Longshot a nipple massage.
And this… I don’t even know what to say about this. Wolverine is getting a manicure while reading a book on Japanese flower arrangement and wearing a robe embroidered with his first initial? Why yes thank you I’ll take 3 of these. I wonder how close all this is to what actually goes on during the filming of the real X-Men movies. Hugh Jackman does seem like he’d be into floral arrangements. (Excalibur: The Sword is Drawn – April 1988)
