Jean, for the millionth time: Take off your glasses, let me see your face. It’s okay, Scott.

Me, acting like I’ve never seen this before:

And this time he had a good reason to hesitate: it wasn’t because he was afraid to hurt her,but because he didn’t want her to see that he lost his eye

Omggggg poor Scott.

Unfortunately, because the whole of the Infern…

Unfortunately, because the whole of the Inferno crossover is split between two omnibus collections, I’m inevitably reading these stories out of order (even though I’ve hopefully ordered these posts to be in order before they get published). As such it’s been forever since I last read an X-Factor comic. I completely forgot that Candy Southern got killed, but looking through my old posts my memory is refreshed and I see that yeah, she just got the shit killed out of her during Warren’s battle with Cameron Hodge, who himself we know is only MOSTLY dead right here, thanks to N’astirh’s foreshadowing and the knowledge that he comes back to life during the upcoming Extinction Agenda storyline.

Jean: Take these off. I want to see you.

Oh great. It been not so long since Beast reverted to his monstrous hairy form, and in doing so we find out that Trish Tilby is a speciest. She only likes her men to be big, dumb, and get this… HUMAN looking. #TrumpsAmerica (X-Factor #36 – Jan 1989)

After years of buildup, many prologue issues, and crossover chapters priming the pot, we’re finally getting into Inferno proper and the mutant shit is really about to start to hitting the mutant fan. The original X-Men reunite in Manhattan in time to confront all of the carnivorous skyscrapers, possessed fire escapes, and demon hordes of the Inferno invasion, and at the same time the possibility of the old and the new X-Men teams meeting up during the melee is becoming more and more likely. Sparks are going to fly!!! (X-Factor #36 – Jan 1989)

I miss the days when the X-Men threw children into the ocean for being mildly annoying. XD

Marco Checchetto’s variant cover for House of X #1 just might be my most favorite Cyclops art in the history of EVER!

His hand is out so we can deposit love into it

Jay & Miles X-Plain the X-Men, Episode 260 – Professor Power’s Prodigal Podcast:

Illustration by @davidwynne!

In which we explore the aftermath of Multiple Man’s death; X-Factor has a lot of feelings; it probably sucks to grieve with Charles Xavier; neither power nor responsibility is particularly fun; we finally find out who was trying to kill Polaris; Professor Power makes it to the big leagues; and the ‘90s were one long leg day.
