Back to the flagship… but still with Magneto! A wildly convenient little ditty today, which starts at Professor X’s somber memorial… and ends up on the electrified floor of Island M. The hows and whys are part of (if not ALL of) the fun…
Also: A backup strip to shut up some of the more annoying… err, prolific… letterhacks, finally explaining how Cyclops’ powers work!
Speaking of letterhacks, we’ll be covering 7-8 of those, then hopping into the Bullpen Bulletins to talk about the 1968 Marvel Explosion, I kvetch s’more about variant covers… and much, much more!
