Provide Some Answers – Fourteen-Year-Old X-Men Mystery Solved!

This feature is basically a counterpart to our Left Unresolved feature. That feature is for plotlines that were, well, left unresolved. In this one, though, we spotlight examples of long unresolved stories that WERE ultimately resolved by later writers. The only rule is that at least four years have to pass between the plot point being introduced and it being resolved.

Today, we look at how a fourteen-year old mystery from the pages of X-Men was resolved in the pages of Quasar, of all places!

The very first storyline featuring the All-New, All-Different X-Men in their own book began in X-Men #94 and their first enemy did not exactly live on in history, as their foes were the Ani-Men, led by Count Nefaria (okay, Count Nefaria has done better, legacy-wise, than the Ani-Men). Here they are in X-Men #94 by Len Wein, Dave Cockrum, Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod)…

Here they are in the next issue, faced off against the X-Men (inks now by Sam Grainger instead of McLeod)…

After the battle, we’re never told expressly what happened to the Ani-Men, but we soon find out that the X-Men kept them in their own private prison on Muir Isle, where I guess Moira MacTaggert, I dunno, experimented on them? I have no idea why they were there.

But anyhow, in 1976’s X-Men #104, Magneto is freed from his own Muir Isle prison and upon escaping, he lets other people go, as well.

One of them, Mutant X…

is later addressed in the classic storyline The Proteus Saga, twenty-one issues later…

The other one, though, is Dragonfly of the Ani-Men…

Dragonfly never appeared in the pages of X-Men again.

In 1990, however, her mystery was solved in the pages of Quasar.
