Power Pack artist June Brigman sits in for a Nightcrawler-focused story. Beyonder was basically a stand-in for God, and this issue sees Nightcrawler, who is always characterized as deeply religious, wrestling with the reality of an all-powerful character who is really a big jerk.
But thankfully, it’s not ponderous (like so much of Secret Wars II)—instead, it involves Arcade kidnapping someone and Nightcrawler going to the rescue by turning Arcade’s robot x-folks against him.
Creators: Chris Claremont and June Brigman
Grade: C+. A fun issue, but kind of thin
