And we open our cover spotlight series with Monet, who is, for some reason, tiptoeing in big clunky boots. (Uncanny X-Men #316)
A name AND implied backstory? Yeah, she’s doomed. (Uncanny X-Men #316)
Okay, yeah, Kubert’s Banshee can get it. (Uncanny X-Men #316)
This is actually a great look. Too bad it’s a Phalanx doppelgänger. (Uncanny X-Men #316)
There they are, folks: Banshee’s abs. (Uncanny X-Men #316)
Next up: Synch! (X-Men #36)
He just looks so wrong with the intact glasses! (X-Men #36)
Showing a bunch of predominantly white cops holding guns on an unarmed black teenager while claiming that superpowers are the only issue in play is a pretty good illustration of exactly how the mutant metaphor fails at intersectionality. (X-Men #36)
Oh, hey, the Phalanx got legit scary! (X-Men #36)
[whispered] but why does the phalanx need abs (X-Men #36)
Heck, yeah, dynamic covers! (Uncanny X-Men #317)
The gang’s (almost) all here! (Uncanny X-Men #317)
Seriously, he might as well just wear a t-shirt that says “I’m a supervillain pretending to be a teenager.” (Uncanny X-Men #317)
nope (Uncanny X-Men #317)
For those of you wondering: Yes, they will eventually hook up. (Uncanny X-Men #317)
What I’m mostly getting from this is that the Phalanx offers great dental. (Uncanny X-Men #317)
It’s far, far down the list of Things Wrong with that guns-drawn panel, but a uniformed cop would never do that double-pistol maneuver.
Thank you for giving Kubert’s Banshee his due! That panel of Sean changing into sweats was very important to 11 year old me.
I remember being a fan of the X-Men cartoon roughly parallel to these comics. I went out and picked up some x-men comics to learn more about them, but couldn’t make any sense out of the stories at the time. There was so much backstory taken for granted, referencing things I knew nothing about. The characters were drawn the same way and same poses, and for an ADHD addled middle school kid, I couldn’t make sense of them. My hats off to you both for breaking the 90’s down for me!
