Remember to Forget - That Time the X-Men Decided Hunting Down Mutants Was a Good Idea

Once his wings are amputated, he ends up seemingly killing himself.

At his funeral in X-Factor #17 (by Louise and Walter Simonson, with Bob Wiacek on inks), Cameron Hodge makes some curious statements...

He explains to the group that he was just keeping up appearances...

But at the end of the issue, we learn that he is a bad dude.

In the next issue, he tries to turn Scott against Jean but his manipulations are revealed...

In #21, they fire him...

but then he implements his plan to make mutants look even worse!

He is part of an evil anti-mutant group known as the Right!

It all comes to a head during the Fall of the Mutants when Apocalypse explains how much they helped the anti-mutant cause...

Ouch. So yeah, either they backed a terrible idea, or they were morons who fell for a scheme to make mutants look bad. Either way, not a great time in the history of the original X-Men.

If you have a suggestion for another comic book plot that is probably best forgotten, drop me a line at bcronin@comicbookresources.com
