Kitty Pryde marries Caliban to save Peter’s life.
And then the dickwad dumps her in a few issues. What a fucking heel. Of course, being turned into a statue by the evil mutants kind of excuses it.
This issue also features the first appearance of the young Warlock and future X-Factor member Leech.
His appearance would evolve to be “cuter” later on, when he becomes a young ward of X-Factor.
And Masque, also a Morlock, displays her powers.
Caliban shows surprising sensitivity in the end–letting Kitty out of the marriage because she doesn’t love him.
