These comics written by Louise Simonson are always so campy that I forget they are R-rated until a helpless police officer gets eviscerated by a bunch of starving demons in a ritualistic blood orgy. Anyway, the main Inferno villains do a lot of flitting about to all the major X-Men comic books, but it’s funny that we really only get insight into their master plan in this incredibly forgettable X-Terminators mini-series starring a bunch of puke faced little mutant kids that nobody likes. N’astirh’s scheme is front and center in this comic and as I’m reading it for the first time I’m realizing that I never really understood what was going on during this crossover. Basically, in order to invade and conquer Earth, N’astirh needs a bunch of mutant babies to perpetuate his magic into existence, because the raw matter of babies is young and virile enough to withstand the dark powers involved, and their brains are not developed enough to resist the demon’s dark bidding. He also needs Wiz Kid to build him a demon infused computer system to manage all his spells for some reason, because apparently the dark magic is too complicated for N’astirh to memorize without a few Microsoft Access databases alphabetizing his glyphs and ordering his sigils. Makes perfect sense, except that N’astirh already built Madelyne Pryor a super powered computer system that can literally do everything the X-Men want and he didn’t need some insufferable little dick-mouthed kid to help him. (X-Terminators #3 – Dec 1988)
