Turning into a Brood. Strangely, this fear has already come to pass but it seems it is still very much on Scott's mind.
Wolverine proves too much for the New Mutants.
Kitty proposes an intriguing alternative theory to the reason for the formation of the New Mutants.
There's a bit of a tussle, but unsurprisingly, the X-Men really have no problems quelling the younger team (trainees actually). In any event this scuffle is quickly put in the backburner as something more serious starts happening.
The Professor doesn't simply transform into a Brood but a Brood Queen, who promptly attacks. Prompting Cyclops to respond with his traditional counter.
Anybody who can take on Colossus is going to be tough to put down.
Wolverine is kept young by his healing factor but he's really what? Eighty? The experience shows in his success at partially disarming the Brood Queen.
From lots of experience we go to hardly any at all as Xian Coy Manh bravely tries her hand against the Brood Queen. Or rather, tries her mind.
Enjoy Karma's panels while you can, she will be the first of the New Mutants to leave the team.
Things quickly go sour for the Brood Queen as she encounters the X-Men's heavy hitters one after the other.
The victory is not a victory at all though.
I've said it before and I say it again: I love how decisive Cyclops is as a leader.
I also love the fact that he's wearing the classic X-Men uniform - a visual bridge to the original team .
For the Professor this is the solution.
I find it particularly poignant, yet unsurprising, that Nightcrawler is nervous about being accepted by the New Mutants.
Kurt's situation is such a struggle - he even worries about being accepted by other mutants. On the brighter side, Scott is coming to realize that he has family.
Just when I thought things were slowing down, Superman arrives.
Gladiator has two distinct reports one is about things at home.
The other is about those nutjobs, the FF.
The FF promptly get a literal wake up call from Lilandra informing them of their 'crime'. Speaking of 'literal', the Professor is literally better then ever - he can walk!
That's just genius Mr. Claremont.
The next panel shows that bad times do happen (the last several issues) but there are breaks in the storm.
Before the issue ends Kitty gets 'demoted' to the New Mutants. Thus, the colorful title of the next issue.
