Illyana’s been dumping bad guys into Limbo like crazy, and it seems like this is about to bite her in the ass. As @iconuk01 pointed out on one of my previous posts, many of the evil doers she’s banished have been assimilated into S’ym’s technoorganic army of demons, which is a cool bit of continuity that you’ve really got to be paying attention to in order to notice. I’m sure that means we haven’t seen the last of this overweight, balding, child-napping pedophile known as the Bogeyman. You’d be better off just killing these assholes, Illyana, instead of sending them to some hell dimension where they are going to be welcomed and have the darkest compulsions fostered.

Aww these adorable motherfucking New Mutants. I wish… I wish I had friends.
Anyway, after a brief reunion, Magik teleports Magma back to her family and Empath in Nova Roma, where she’s betrothed to marry some highlander guy or something. This was a really good comic!! I think Louise Simonson is really finding a voice for all these kids. I’m liking her writing here much more than her issues of X-Factor. (New Mutants Annual #4 – 1988)
My favorite part of this comic is at the end when Magento shows up with the Underwear Superfriends… I mean the Hellfire Club… to save the day. Seriously people no one is going to take you seriously dressed like that.
This is a lot of god damned tighty whities to deal with in this comic. (New Mutants Annual #4 – 1988
The New Mutants are able to save Magma from the Purifiers, who were attempting to use this machine to depower her, but in a freak turn of events Dani gets zapped by the thing instead. But thanks to the acts of Bulk and Glow Worm, the machine ends up super charging her powers instead of removing them, and now Dani has the ability to create physical manifestations of people’s fears and desires.
This is, pretty much the greatest god damn power of all time. She’s basically a god damn genie now. Can you imagine the perverted shit we’d all be manifesting if we had this power??? Maybe this is what heaven’s like. (New Mutants Annual #4 – 1988)
