A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments - Day 153

Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here's the archive of the moments posted so far!

Today we look at a cool moment from the first New X-Men story arc by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely.


The set-up of New X-Men #114 and most of #115 is a new villain named Cassandra Nova is trying to access Sentinel technology for some reason.

We learn for WHAT at the end of New X-Men #115, when the Sentinels are sent to the island nation of Genosha, which is filled with over 16,000,000 mutants...well, filled with over 16,000,000 for awhile, at least...

Such a thrilling piece of drama by Morrison and Quitely.

"The" moment for me is probably when the numbers finish counting down.
