    Wow, I never heard the full story behind Gabriel Summers before this. Is there any other family in comics that even comes close to the level of complexity they have?

      Luba’s family in Love and Rockets. Less space-fighting, more heartbreak.

        Is there a version of Love and Rockets with clones and alternate-universe-time-travel kids? Miles, if this exists and you have somehow concealed it from me until now, I am going to need to rethink a lot of things about our relationship. And also about Love and Rockets.

      Shatterstar and Longshot are kind of each other’s fathers.

        Also Sabretooth/Graydon Creed/Mystique/Rogue/Nightcrawler/Margali Szardos/Jimaine Szardos (Amanda Sefton)/Azazel/Bamfs/Destiny!!! You guys touched on some of the Nightcrawler side of things previously. Not to mention that Sabretooth and Wolvie are constantly being teased as being related somehow.
