This is the first issue of X-Men I remember buying, and I recall reading it over and over. I must have read this comic at least twenty times back in the 1980s. But it wasn’t until just now, reading it decades later, that I noticed this little thing with Storm–she’s killed someone!
It was little character touches like this that made Claremont such a great writer.
This is also the issue where Cyclops returns to the team and, in the end, Kitty Pryde uses “the force” to lift the Blackbird out of the ocean.
