There's a webcomic thread if you want to just post webcomics.

in the DC thread that references X-Factor 87.



The comic is engraved in my brain as a childhood memory. There are so many of these mid-90s comic scenes just stuck in there that I can't forget. Anyone else have these unforgettable and really ultimately unimportant memories? What are they?!

I remember way too much about the Age of Apocalypse, and I havenít read it since the nineties. Jay and Miles recaps have been filling in the bits I didnít remember.

Another panel I keep remembering is Cyclops being shocked Storm got hit by lightning and telling Professor X that he thought Storm was immune to weather. Professor X then berates the absolute poo poo out of him for saying something so dumb, asks if he thought she didn't get wet in the rain.

That issue always sticks out for me from my youth, probably because it was so....different. When I think of other comics that are engraved on my brain I have The Dark Knight: Blades - mostly because of the beautiful lush artwork and what a young Madkal thought it was the pinnacle of a love story. I also for some reason had that one X-Men issue where Jean Grey's arm are tentacles in my brain. I guess mostly for how weird it was.

The Great Twist

I have some X-Men issue in my mind where it turns out the X-Men vs X-Men conflict has all been a simulated wargame and Wolverine extends his claw to tag Xavier on the forehead and Cyclops tells him to back off. And then somehow someone was turned to stone, I think? Because something to do with Magneto on Asteroid M? It's very vague in my head, not sure why it's stuck with me.

Itís not the whole of it but the scene with wolverine tagging Charles and Scott being a weenie about it, and Magneto being on an asteroid, was in X-Men 1.

Cartoonist kayfabe just put out a video with it which is the only reason I knew that right away.

X-Men #1, a comic I also read a million billion times when I was a kid. My brother and I each had a copy because the comic shop my dad stopped at on his way home from work was doing a giveaway or something, and both of us toted it around so much that the covers just shredded to dust after awhile.

I think if I close my eyes and try to really viscerally remember what the early 90s felt like a lot of it would be the chunky heft of this specific issue, the feeling of rolling it up and shoving it in a back pocket, the smell of the paper stock etc., and the memory of reading it at a public pool in that kind of heavy, chlorine-y summer air.

I have never seen this but this is the funniest mental image because I'm legit imagining Xavier going to town ripping on Scott here. I'm cackling at my desk.

I wish I could find the panels somewhere. He goes down a bunch of weather events, like "did you think she doesn't get bruised by hail? Did you think she didn't get wet in rain?" It was played straight but I still chuckle about Xavier just being absolutely pissed about how wrong Cyclops was.

I hadn't realized it until somebody pointed it out, but Chris Cooper, the birdwatching guy who got targeted by the racist lady in Central Park yesterday, is the same Chris Cooper who wrote the under-rated Darkhold series for Marvel in the early 90s, as well as a bunch of other comics credits and LGBT activism.

Frankly, that's what Xavier should expect from the guy he named after the mythological creature renowned for falling for the ol' get-'em-drunk-then-say-you're-nobody trick.

Huh, weird, I'd never thought about that before, that Xavier gave the X-Men their code names. Poor Beast!

Do they ever explore that in the comics? Or even address a mutant choosing their own name?

His sister who was also there wrote some comics too, I think. It sucks they were in that situation yesterday, but fortunately the racist lady's the only one who got in trouble.

X-Men Unlimited #1. The three of them are stuck in the Antarctic tundra, and Cyclops is surprised that Storm has gone into shock. Turns out her body is raising its temperature to compensate for the cold, and she's overheating.
