Uncanny X-Men #194 (1985): 1st Fenris

This issue is a total fakeout.  The splash page (a great one!) leads us to believe that maybe Colossus and Juggernaut will go back at it but the real villain is…



For his part, Juggernaut walks off screen on page 2.

Then he’s attacked by Nimrod.

The X-Men show up. Time for a fastball special.

The mutant-hunting robot from the future almost beats the entire team, plus Juggernaut, until Rogue absorbs all the X-Men’s collective powers…

…and fights him off.


The de-powered Storm is in Africa, where she’ll kind of do the Kraven thing and beat up hunters.

Those two hunters are the Strucker siblings, who will later be known as the Fenris Twins.

Meanwhile Russia’s Nick Fury is pro-mutant.
