So... if the X-Men defeat Krakoa, Charles never recruits the All-New X-Men...
Even though the issue after Giant-Sized X-Men had all but Scott quitting because they wanted to do other things with their lives (and Scott couldn't because of his BLASTED, KILLING EYES!!!).
Right...

And they manage to do everything just as well, if not better, than the All-New gang because... because?
(Oh, and Nightcrawler is a bad guy because of course he is. Thunderbird I could see, but Nightcrawler? Seriously?)

I had this comic years ago; Lorna's whole "YO DRAMA QUEENS, MAGNETIC POWERS REMEMBER??" is one of my favourite things in a Marvel comic ever ^_^

I also had this comic, and came to the comments to say this very thing. :)

It does raise the question of why Jean couldn't do the same thing with her TK powers. Neither power set requires physical manipulation, and even if Jean's not at Phoenix power-levels (obviously), they're in space, where mass and not weight is your biggest concern.

Another "What if..?" does that very thing with Jean, where she uses TK to land the shuttle whilst safely ensconced in the protected area. I can't remember which one, alas.

So reminded of the Sun-Eater and Ferro Lad.

Absolutely one of my favorite issues of What If.

We'd have had Inhuman books in the seventies?

It occurs to me that in this universe, there would be no Champions or New Defenders. Wonder if any of that would have unforeseen consequences.

This is pretty amusing: a What-If where things are different, but not tragically terrible. Essentially, the original X-men end up covering some of the ANAD storylines, but differently. I actually like when the WI/Elseworld isn't solidly 'and then for want of a nail, EVERYONE DIED!', but instead proposes a different reality.
