Here's some more 1990s stuff about Apocalyse's origin. Aside from what he did to Angel and the AoA alternate timeline, he's never quite been as dangerous as he keeps saying. I think Magneto has killed more people than Apocalypse has.

While I have not seen the X-Men: Day of Future Past move yet, at least one plot point sounds very familiar to a plot point involved in a different "X-Men/Time Travel" story. Minor DOFP spoilers after the cut.

X-MEN #41 (Vol 2) was LegionQuest, the prologue to Age of Apocalypse.

Let's go there now, through the magic of television! )

majingojira's second AVENGERS ACADEMY post showed Quicksilver saying "Magneto put Wanda and me in situations where we would rescue humans, the humans would turn against us, and Magneto would 'save' us and say humans are bad."

A very good example can be seen in issues #4 of the 1995 "Professor Xavier and the X-Men" series.

Hey kids, want to rule the world? )

- or, "Prologue to A Tale of Light and Dark," which is the Titans' next big arc, apparently. 3 whole pages and 2 partial pages for a total of 4, and man did I have a hard time cutting it down to just that. This is a bridge issue, tying up the Death of the Family crossover story and putting pieces into play for this Light and Dark thing, so there's a lot going on here.

Can we go back to the awkward silence? )

Can't swear to it, but I think I may be looking forward to the War of Light and Dark thing.

That got some of y'all's' attention, I'd imagine. One page with the long-awaited return of a beloved character!

And I thought the actual 90s were unkind to this 'un... )

OK guys, let's discuss in loving, intricate detail the thousand and one ways this is WRONG. On your mark - get set - GO!

OK, so the work on this primer kind of got away from me, mea culpa. But I now have it complete up to the current "The Culling" crossover arc.

In Part 1, we saw how Yera was duped into impersonating Shrinking Violet for months on end, during which time "Vi" secretly married Colossal Boy. Yera was exposed, Vi was rescued, Gim and Yera decided to stay married, and all was on track for them all to live happily ever after.

But first, they gotta tell Gim's parents...

in a story called 'Guess What's Coming to Dinner?' No, really. )

And you can tune in to Legion Lost for more Chameleon Girl, now that The Culling is wrapping up!

We've been discussing how "all new, all different" Iceman is going to be, and if Iceman is going to be similar to the Age of Apocalypse Iceman. But how powerful was the AoA Iceman, and was he *anything* like "our" Bobby Drake?
Well, no. As I've said, he's more like sentient ice. I don't even think he resumes human form at all during AOA.



Magneto quotes Yogi Berra!

By request from [personal profile] auggie18, I present this rather awesome fight between Jean Grey and Sabretooth from (Adjectiveless) X-Men #28.

Some context. In order to stave off his bloodlust and maintain some semblance of humanity, Sabretooth has been using a telepath named Birdy to give him "the glow", a mental blast which functions basically as mutant prozac. When she's killed he decides the only logical conclusion is to go let Wolverine "do what needs to be done". Problem is, just a few issues ago Magneto went and ripped out all of Wolverine's adamantium and Logan's not in much of a position to do anything to anybody.

With Sabretooth on his doorstep, Xavier enters Creed's mind and discovers that he perfectly remembers all of his past victims, which is driving him even further into psychosis. Xavier decides that Sabretooth can be redeemed and thus they cage him up in the mansion and therapy begins.

This goes over about as well with the X-Men as you'd expect, but one member in particular is having serious reservations. After comforting Jubilee in the wake of a major Sabretooth-themed nightmare, Jean gathers Scott, Hank and Ororo at Harry's to talk about it. With all the questionable actions Xavier's taken lately (from having Storm steal for him up to the assault on Magneto), is this what they should be doing, or just another example of Charles losing it? The discussion goes from "well we took in Wolverine and Rogue and worked out okay" to "Sabretooth's powers aren't out of control he's just an evil guy who likes to use them to torture and kill people".

Things seem to keep getting worse with Sabretooth going out of his way to deeply freak out each and every person he encounters. Jean finally snaps and confronts Xavier directly. That's when Scott figures it out.

 


Cue drama, as only the '90s can do it. )

To be honest I have NO idea what version we're on by now... Let's say "N", when N is an integer which is probably still in single digits.

It's flashBack to the Future time! )
