Nightcrawler teases Rogue.
And regrets it.
And Colossus clobbers Warlock.
No, it’s Magus. They just look the same.
Warlock hasn’t been doing much in the X-Men book so far, but in this story daddy comes home. Magus, Warlock’s father, has been hunting him in cut scenes ever since Warlock’s first appearance. It’s a great extended fight scene. In the end, Rogue absorbs Magus and that scares him so he runs away.
At the issue’s end, Professor X gets attacked by a mutant hating mob and can’t defend himself.
This is not a great showing for him–he’s incredibly powerful and should have been able to handle this. Plus, he has use of his legs–he should have been able to run away.
