Uncanny X-Men #204 (1986): Secret Wars II

Power Pack artist June Brigman sits in for a Nightcrawler-focused story.  Beyonder was basically a stand-in for God, and this issue sees Nightcrawler, who is always characterized as deeply religious, wrestling with the reality of an all-powerful character who is really a big jerk.

But thankfully, it’s not ponderous (like so much of Secret Wars II)—instead, it involves Arcade kidnapping a woman…

Nice use of sound effects!

…and Nightcrawler going to the rescue…

…by turning Arcade’s robot x-folks against him.
