New Mutants #22 (1984)

“Kitty’s Fairy Tale” from Uncanny X-Men #159 is widely appraised as one of Chris Claremont’s best stories of all time, so it makes sense that he’s trying to see if lightning strikes twice.  Rahne Sinclair offers an imaginary tale where The New Mutants are reimagined as princesses and warriors, and meet Cloak and Dagger.

As part of the slow boil storylines, Sunspot’s dad is being brought into the Hellfire Club.

Also, the X-Men are shown training The New Mutants in the Danger Room, which is always fun.  And pin-ups!

Creators:  Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz
