In the seventh and final part of our look at the New Mutants' first year (or so) in the business... Magma heats things up, Kitty learns that Pryde goeth before the fall and professor Xavier has a hard time skyping with his ladyfriend Lilandra in another galaxy. 
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In the seventh and final part of our lookback at the New Mutants' early days, the teens finally wrap up their South American holiday and return home with their newest member Amara, who coughs up a volcano whenever she gets upset... Which she does.

In the fifth part of our New Mutants retrospective... Chris Claremont proves he's equal parts gifted writer full of inspired ideas and trope tossing hackneyed hack. Also: Rio during carnival, family fued Da Costa style and some good ol' fashioned blackface comedy!
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In the fifth part of our lookback at the New Mutants' early days, the teen team is still coping with the loss of one of their own... And professor Xavier knows the best way to deal with loss: go away on a holiday. Xavier's youngest get shipped off ...

It's part three of the New Mutants Year One. Xavier's new students have their own monthly title, but first they have to deal with a few, brooding dangers!
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In the third part of our lookback at the New Mutants' early days, the team's monthly title is finally launched. The kids are all ready for their new life as gifted youngsters, but something dark is brooding at the school... And away they go!

It's part I of our New Mutants retrospective. Plenty of young homo superior to train, but Charles Xavier just can't be bothered. Meanwhile back in 1978, John Byrne is cursing his darn luck.
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) It's the early 80s and Marvel's editor in chief Jim Shooter just had an idea: the X-Men were getting more and more popular, so why not capitalize on that success by adding another title? Lo and behold, the New Mutants were born, though the neophyte ...

It's part two of The Whackos' Cross Time Craziness. Time has split in three and the Avengers encounter no less than two Rama-Tuts. That's a whole lotta paraoh for your 75 cents!
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) Gearing up to his 2nd anniversary as writer of West Coast Avengers, Steve Englehart decided to pull out all the stops and have his team go on an adventure they wouldn't soon forget, temporal paradoxes be damned. Two issues in and time had already ...

Throwback Tuesday: Ms. Marvel's Mind Control Turn
Now, strictly speaking, since Chris Claremont barely writes any new comics any more, every entry is potentially a throwback, despite the day it's published. But for now, let's roll with the meme, even if isn't Thursday. Today, we're covering the mess that i...

It's part VI of our continued look at the New Mutants' first year in comics... And for once, the forced use of Roman numerals makes sense as the team travels to Nova Roma for blood, circuses, senseless mind control and a new, fiery member. Also... Meet Selene, she just loves to suck young 'uns dry.
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In the sixth part of our lookback at the New Mutants' early days, the Roman numerals finally make sense as the teens find themselves imprisoned in Nova Roma, an offshoot of the Roman empire that didn't make it any history books.

In the fourth part of New Mutants Year One... It's semi-new mutants versus old villains featuring stale supporting characters that never felt fresh to begin with... 
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In the fourth part of our lookback at the New Mutants' early days, the teen team is still trying to adjust to their new life as part of the larger Claremontverse. And Chris doesn't let up as he throws Viper, the Silver Samurai and a mysterious but ...

It's part two of a lookback at the New Mutant's first year in the business. While Charles is slowly gathering his new team, Donald Pierce is out to kill all the young mutants he can find. Reason enough for Xavier to make like a Pokeball and catch 'em all... Luckily, his head's already shaped like one.
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In the second part of our lookback at the New Mutants' early days, professor Xavier has just overcome his hesitation at training mutant teens again. In the opening pages of Marvel Graphic Novel I#4, he'd already gathered Wolfsbane and Karma, ...

It's 1987, high time for a look back at Steve Englehart's West Coast Avengers in which the 'Wackos' fight a cactus that walks like a man, a living totem and the 1870s answer to Magneto.
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) Hard to imagine, but once upon a time Marvel only put out one Avengers comic a month. The 1980s changed all that when Hawkeye moved to LA with some fan favorite Avengers to band together as the West Coast Avengers. About a year and a half in, ...

It's part IV of Alpha's Beta Flight... Alphans return from the dead left and right. Featuring a trip to the monochromatic Well of Sorrows plus the most convoluted origin story this side of post-Crisis Power Girl.
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In the fourth entry of Alpha's Beta Flight, John Byrne's nearing the proverbial down home stretch with Canada's finest. But before he bows out, there's the two year anniversary to celebrate and it promises to be one hell of a good time... literally ...
