Kitty Pryde is one of countless millions watching this all broadcast live on television as a cameraman from the news station got caught in the middle of the X-Men's battle struggle against the Adversary, broadcasting the drama across the world. But Roma's Starlight Citadel, "beyond time & space" has access to eternity we learn, and so she brings the sacrificed heroes. This makes me wonder that if her power is so vast that she can ressurect the X-Men, why didn't she just put Adversary down in the first place?! Anyway, they decide to let the world think they are dead as Wolverine suggests, the idea that villains they need to bring down would be caught unawares when struck. Next stop: Austrailia!
I have great love for these old comics, their quirky arcane printing, the old advertisements for candy, video games, model kits, ecetera. I like reading the old "Bullpen Bulletins" from that time, remembering pop culture back when I was a kid, and thinking about that in context with all that was to come later. Fascinating! The story was by living legend Chris Claremont who made Uncanny X-Men the top selling comic during his years writing it from 1975-1991. Mark Silvestri's detailed pencilling was lauded in this series, and he went on to found the indie Image comics with Jim Lee, Todd McFarlane, & others later. A small slice of a time past- an exciting, fun time in the Marvel Universe.
More Later- Make It FUN!
