Look at Magneto on the end, like, “I’m a supervillain, and I think these people are out of their damn minds.” (Uncanny X-Men #201)
#201 was the first Claremont-era back issue (barring trades and reprints) I ever saved up for and a lot of these panels are giving me such feels. I really miss the era when the teams were so clearly identifiable as their own distinct units and yet they socially intermingled very easily. Probably since the post-Morrison era, it feels like multi-team group shots are just big, interchangeable x-mobs. I get that the X-teams are all one big family, but each branch of a family is unique and identifiable from one another. Wow, this just went from a comment on group pictures to a comment on the contemporary x-line’s editorial direction.
I’m totally with you. I miss that too. Maybe post-Secret Wars..?
