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 #127 and how Cyclops decided to get his team back into shape after Proteus put them out of sorts.
Chris Claremont, John Byrne and Terry Austin had the X-Men in rough shape in X-Men #127. First, Proteus nearly destroyed the X-Men in X-Men #126 when they fell afoul of his reality-altering powers (Wolverine in particularly got the worst of it). Cyclops then had to stop Moira MacTaggert from killing Proteus and she responded by knocking him out.
So the X-Men are in bad spirits. Cyclops, as team leader, knows he has to fix things…
Wow, such amazing artwork from Byrne and Austin.
“The” moment for me is when Wolverine begrudingly gives it up to Cyclops.
