UNCANNY X-MEN #193: First Appearances of Warpath and Firestar!


A double-size issue (“Gala 100th anniversary” of the new X-Men) with two cool things.  First, the X-Men’s first Native America hero returns (actually, it’s his brother)–with a crotch shot!


James Proudstar is hunting Professor X to kill him for bringing his brother into the new X-Men, where he died on his very first mission, but in the end he can’t go through with killing Xavier.  Along the way: A good Wolverine fight.

Second, from the TV show Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, we get a new character joining Marvel canon…


Plus, Callisto saves Professor X after he was mugged on the street, and dresses him up in leathers.

The ending cliffhanger says Nimrod will be on his way to kill the team in the next issue.

I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again: He may have been a wordy writer, but Chris Claremont fit a ton of stuff into every issue.  You always got your money’s worth.

I also really liked these panels:

Creators: Claremont and Romita, Jr.
Grade: B
