(The X-Men R) Good Enough (Issue #102)


If you fall, I will catch you, I will be waiting! Juggernaut after Juggernaut...
(quieter) Juggernaut after Juggernaut...
(quieter, still) Juggernaut after Juggernaut....

Wait ... can you even see that the cover text says, "IF COLOSSUS SHOULD FALL... WHO SHALL STOP THE JUGGERNAUT?"

You probably can't. So my Cyndi Lauper moment was pretty lost on you, huh? Still, it's always good to remember just how great Cyndi Lauper is.

She really DOES bop. *Ahem*

But, in all seriousness: What's with the cowering damsel act, Storm? Is it because you were paralyzed with crippling claustrophobia at the end of the last issue*? *[Yes. See Last Issue --Ed]

We start mid-fight with the X-Mans fighting Juggernaut and some guy called Black Tom. Luckily, this is not a racist name. (1976 Marvel, I feel, could have gone either way. We're lucky.) Amidst the fighting, Wolverine and Colossus manage to get into a sub-fight of their own about whether or not Colossus should be concerned about the clearly-losing-her-sh!t-Storm.

I really want to start using "mad on" in my everyday conversation, but I can't figure
out how to say it that doesn't make me sound like I'm saying something lewd.
"Man, that politician gives me SUCH a MAD ON!" Hot.
