Alpha Flight #54 (1988)

Tucked inside this horrible mess of a comic, which is tucked inside a horrible mess of a series, is an interesting idea: A mutant hating couple is pregnant with a mutant baby, so they abort.

Of course, they abort with radiation which just makes the mutant more powerful AND the couple is a black couple so we can get the abortion concept confused with race and anti-mutantism.

Too bad—this could have gone somewhere.
