UNCANNY X-MEN #102-103: New Nightcrawler Powers and the First Fastball Special (sort of)!

IMG_0876It’s the return of Juggernaut, but more importantly, we learn two things.  First, above, the source and impact of Storm’s claustrophobia.  Guess what made her so afflicted?  She was trapped under rubble with the dead body of her mother.  Guess what caused the rubble?

A plane crash!

Yet another in the long line of vehicle crashes in the pages of Claremont’s X-Men.

We also learn about another Nightcrawler power: Hiding in shadows.  It’s cool, but it does kind of make you wonder: If this power is only being established now, why was he called Nightcrawler in the first place?  Ponderous.

Finally, this is the first time that Colossus throws Wolverine.  It’s technically not a fastball special–it’s just Wolverine is being a sexist douche bag and Peter decides to relocate him.  But the seeds are planted.
