X-MEN #41 (Vol 2) was LegionQuest, the prologue to Age of Apocalypse.
( Let's go there now, through the magic of television! )
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? )
( 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.
( 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!
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!
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!

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. )
As you may recall, Superman and Wonder Woman, along with several members of the 99, were at the unveiling of a City of the Future when suddenly people in the city (and soon all over the world) began rioting. Other disasters started happening as well, with several people acting out of character.
( Sometimes, you have to know the right buttons to push. )
Your thoughts and comments?
I had a brain-wave today and I realized this comm was missing something. The epic first encounter between Deadpool and Bob, Agent of HYDRA!
Bob is one of the most awesome characters that ever awesomed.
One of the things that DP often has going for him is an awesome supporting cast and Bob is one of the greats. If you're unaware of his existence, click I say! For your own sake!
"Bob is brave and noble. Like a steed."

So we've gotten an "official" picture of Andrew Garfield as Spidey unmasked, and we've had a couple of candids of Spidey on set, but this here is the first official image of the new Spidey in full costume.
The movie, btw, is going to be called "The Amazing Spider-Man".
