Many moons ago (Good Lord, has it really been over 3 years???), I posted some pages from "New Mutants Forever", which was Chris Claremont's return to the X-Men's original cadet team.

It was, as I said at the time, a very mixed bag, with too many of Claremont's tired plot tropes (mind control, body horror, enforced (but enjoyable) release from moral boundaries etc) and not enough of the redeeming features he usually employed (cameraderie, loyalty), though there were moments here and there...

I now conclude that post with some pages from issues 4 and 5, and in particular the last pages of the last issue (The earlier pages are basically to support those). Be warned there is some Nazi imagery under the cut, if such things cause you problems you may wish to avoid this.

J.M. DeMatteis' excellent origin for the Red Skull expanded on what Jack Kirby had already established and made him even more twisted and unredeemable. I love this Red Skull because it shows that from an early time there was something deeply wrong with his head. DeMatteis doesn't really try to psychoanalyse him away - he just writes him as being consumed by an incomprehensible hatred for all life, including his own, a hatred he then channeled into wonderfully horrible projects.

I posted scene earlier in which a chance meeting had a massive impact on the DCU, but today I'll post a moment from the Marvel Universe that COULD have had a massive impact on the future but didn't.

For Dude in Distress week, I thought I'd post a few pages of when the Red Skull has Captain America at his mercy... and decides to bore him with his origin story.

Greetings, People from Planet Houston!

Today is the premiere of the film of Captain America and I think it will be fitting for today to post several posts related to our beloved Captain. This will be my first entry of several more to come. Right now we will witness the rebirth of the Red Skull.

For every hero, there must be a villain. For Captain America, arguably the incarnation of the best ideals of the Marvel Universe, there must be the Red Skull.
