This is a requested follow-up of sorts to the 'Caliban and Kitty' post from yesterday as the two had another interaction I was not yet aware of. That large hulking guy on the cover? That's Caliban. It was the 90s.

So here the title crossed a fairly big milestone, it's 100th issue. While USM was far from an 'underdog' it was something that many people wrote off as a gimmick from the getgo and the idea that it would get to a 50th issue, let alone twice that, was seen as laughable in 2001. Fortunately the title not only surpassed that but Bendis and Bagley would also later go on to break the record for longest uninterrupted run by two people on a Marvel title (previously held by Stan and Jack on Fantastic Four).

And what better way to celebrate such a momentous occasion but a take on one of the most maligned stories in Spider-Man history?

UNCANNY X-MEN #321 is part of LEGIONQUEST, the lead-up to AGE OF APOCALYPSE. David "Legion" Haller goes back in time to kill Magneto and drags some of the X-Men along with him. They end up "20 years ago," when Charles Xavier and Erik Magnus Lensherr were friends in Israel.

Trigger warning for some ablest language that Charles Xavier doesn't like.

Also, fanfiction! No, not that kind of fanfiction! )

On the 70th Anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, I am re-posting some pages from X-MEN MINUS 1, a flashback story where Professor X and Magneto meet at an empty Auschwitz. Trigger warning for the empty concentration camp.

Nice helmet. )

ALL-NEW X-MEN #10 had Hank McCoy say, "He's putting an army together to fight the humans and he's using Xavier's name to do it." He was talking about present-day Cyclops to time-shifted young Cyclops.

X-MEN: CHILDREN OF THE ATOM was a late 1999-early 2000 miniseries by Joe Casey and Steve Rude, a "take" on how Charles Xavier gathered the original X-Men together. Which was easy, since Scott, Hank and Bobby all went to the same high school.

And here's how those two things tie together. (With a reference to KINGDOM COME.)

Kind of militant, don't you think? )

Why did Bolivar Trask create the Sentinels? Well, there's a theory about that, involving Bolivar's son, Larry. It isn't mine though. Also, a bunch of comic trivia!
