Uncanny X-Men was the most popular comic of the 1980s. Here's a scene from 1988's Inferno crossover, which marked the 25th anniversary of the X-Men. Lorna has been possessed by Malice of Mr. Sinister's Marauders, and is attacking the team. How does Ororo handle this?

From Uncanny X-Men #243, by Chris Claremont and Mark Silvestri

I'm still amazed and fiendishly pleased by the stuff some of the 80's books got away with implying.

That's not subtext, that's text.

Not only did Malice make Lorna attack the X-Men. She/it (never did know if the Malice entity had a gender or not)also made her get a really bad perm.

Oh the horror!

O man, Inferno was one big heap of cracktastic subtextual joy.

Total Victory!

I live and die by 80's X-Men! Best era by far.

I loved Claremont before he went insane.
