Damage Control #4 (1989)

The final issue of this mini takes place after Inferno, and involves the team cleaning up the city and also finding out that the X-Men’s Danger Room has the ability to repair itself and is stealing material from NYC construction sites.  A lot of the issue is flashbacks to a prior job, where Professor X first hired DC to help fix the X-Mansion, which is where the Danger Room was mis-programmed to behave like this.

That’s Jack Kirby again, above, even though they don’t say so.

Once again, as with every other issue of this series, it’s a pretty neat idea but it’s rushed and doesn’t go where I would have liked to have seen it go.  And, once again, it feels like material that belongs in Crazy Magazine and not in Marvel continuity.
