Month of Cool Avengers/X-Men Comic Book Moments – All-New, All-Different X-Men in Freefall!

by  in Comic News Comment

All month long we will feature brand-new Cool Avengers and X-Men Comic Book Moments in celebration of their fiftieth anniversaries this month. Here is an archive of all the past cool comic moments that I’ve featured so far over the years.

Today we look at X-Men #95 and how the X-Men dealt with a tough cliffhanger…

X-Men #94, Chris Claremont’s first issue of X-Men as the writer (he scripted the issue over Len Wein’s plot) ended with the X-Men’s ship being shot down by Count Nefaria. We pick up, then, with the X-Men all in a freefall…





Very cool sequence. Claremont and Cockrum were in fine form here, as was inker Sam Grainger. Although it is kind of funny if you read Banshee’s lines as him trying to hit on Cyclops.
