Ten Goofiest Moments in Uncanny X-Men #426-435

5. Lending a hand...or some stuff...

In #431, Iceman's body (while in ice form) is exploded. Iceman had recently experienced a secondary mutation (which has pretty much been ignored) where he could literally turn INTO ice. So he was able to survive his body exploding. But he needed moisture to re-create his body. Havok offers up some...

4. Angels and Demons, Book 1...

It is goofy enough that Azazel is trying to claim that the Biblical devil is just based on stuff he and some demonic-looking mutants did a long time ago (this is especially weird in a Marvel Universe that clearly HAS demons)...

but even goofier is...

3. Angels and Demons, Book 2...

the idea of Angel being a descendant of a race of mutants who look like Angels who drove the demon-looking mutants out of this dimension. What takes it over the limit is the notion that Angel's blood actually boils Nightcrawler...

That's some goofy stuff right there.

2. I Was So Much Older Then, I'm Younger Than That Now...

In #428, our story begins 20 years ago, before Mystique even meets Azazel and before she gets pregnant.

So that means that it is, at the earliest, 19 years and 3 months ago that she gave birth to Kurt.

I certainly don't mind some fudging with ages (this is comics, after all), but the notion that Kurt is NOW 19 years old? That's pretty darn goofy.

1. Seriously?

In #427, here is one of the goofiest, oddest, out of nowhere plot points you'll ever see...

What would possibly motivate you to come up with that for a plot point?
