George Perez drawing the X-Men on a Chris Claremont script! This makes up for the fact that the villain is Arkon. Almost.

Arkon needs Storm’s lightning powers to fuel the electrical contraptions that keep his planet alive.

Hasn’t he ever heard of solar power?

They all fight a bunch, but then the X-Men just agree to charge up the machines for him and everyone leaves happy.

And it turns out that Cyclops, not Storm, was the key to the battery.

Yeah, Arkon. You really should have asked.

It’s an annual. It’s supposed to be self-contained and full of action. So for what it is, it’s pretty good. And again, George Perez. Nice.
