How Can I Explain? - Why the Astonishing X-Men "Danger" Arc Didn't Really Make Sense

The Danger Room first showed up (as referred to as the "Danger Room") in X-Men #2 (by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Paul Reinman)...

But we're really talking about when it was remade using Shi'ar technology, and that happened in New Mutants #1 (by Chris Claremont, Bob McLeod and Mike Gustovich)...

But BY THE END OF THE ISSUE, the FIRST appearance of the Danger Room, the safety protocols are disengaged! It couldn't go a single issue before being disengaged!

The next issue implies that Xavier did it, since this was during the time that a Brood Queen had taken over his body...

The safety protocols failed at other times over the years, like in X-Treme X-Men #23 (by Chris Claremont and Igor Kordey)...

I'm sure most of you could think of other examples of it failing between 1983 and 2003, so when the hook of your story is based on the Danger Room not being allowed to kill, well, that's just a mistake.

Feel free to make suggestion for future installments by e-mailing me at brianc@cbr.com! And feel free to be contrarians and try to explain why this makes sense!
