UNCANNY X-MEN #416 (2003)

Issue #416 marks the Marvel debut of artist Kia Asamiya, best known at the time for work in Japanese Manga books.

As for the writing, well, the above scene says it all. Iceman resents that Stacy X is now on the team and rants to Nightcrawler that he’s tired of all the Johnny-come-lately mutants on the team, which Nightcrawler (stupidly) takes personal because he’s not one of the original five.

Yeah, but he’s been on the team for decades at this point. This sequence feels completely unbelievable and contrived.

Meanwhile, Juggernaut smashes up his boyhood home and befriends Squidboy.

This book is all over the place
