Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't this arc set up Nimrod as coming intro the Marvel universe from the future?

Nimrod was supposed to be the main villain in the Morlock Massacre.

Really? That sounds much better than having Gambit be responsible for it!

Saying that in response to a 'what could have been' kind of implies Gambit wasn't a massive retcon.

The whole original plan was rather different, really and I've seen a number of people wish that was what was printed. Personally, I'd love to see an Inferno where Claremont was in charge, not the Simonsons (I am increasingly finding I cannot stand Louises writing at all, and Walts art I find very hit and miss.)

Agreed on Claremont vs the Simonsons, so long as Claremont reigns in his mind control bandage vibes.

What was the original plan for the Mutant Massacre? Just Mister Sinister thinning the herd?

This is from Comic Legends revealed on, but I've seen it corroborated elsewhere too: "The original plan involved Nimrod merging with the Fury to form an astonishingly powerful villain. This new villain would wipe out the Morlocks and most of the Hellfire Club. In the various battles with the X-Men, he would also severely wound Nightcrawler. Ultimately, Kitty Pryde would temporarily defeat him by phasing through him, messing with his circuits but the reaction would have left her injured, as well.

Nightcrawler, Kitty, Colossus and Longshot (hot off of his mini-series) would leave the X-Men to go to England where Colossus would serve as a bodyguard of sorts to the recuperating Kurt and Kitty. This, naturally, would lead into a new book called Excalibur.

Jaspers, meanwhile, would team up with Nimrod/Fury, and slowly turn the population of the world against the X-Men. Mutants all over the world would be forced to team up together. Eventually, Forge and Roma would get involved and the Siege Perilous would be used to defeat Jaspers and Nimrod/Fury, but the X-Men would be warped via Jaspers powers so that Claremont could make various changes with the team."

So what's with the disparate quality among these scans?

I found the scene where Strange refuses to help Xavier with Illyana peculiar when this first came out. But recently we've seen Illyana go back in time to seek tutoring from Strange. Probably at a point before this, from Stranges response.

It pleases me that if the Strange we see here knows that Illyana will seek him out of her own accord in time, it makes perfect sense.
