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 III of John Byrne's second year on Alpha Flight. The villains are new, the internal rivalries are old and you'll be able to forget Gilded Lily almost as fast as all of Marvel's creators since 1985...
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In the third entry of Alpha's Beta Flight a new team is slowly forming. But before the renewed Alpha Flight can launch, we focus on some of the old Alphans and their problems. And oh boy, those will fill an issue or three. "GILDED LILY ...

Nightcrawler's Nearly Non-Existent Mind Control part III: Wrapping It Up As We Go
It's the third and final chapter of Nightcrawler's Nearly Non-Existent Mind Control in which the wrap up of his umpteenth bout against the Shadow King is prominently featured. It's a Claremont classic, meaning that all of Chris' beloved tropes are trotted o...

The year is 1983 and Marvel's editor in chief Jim Shooter decided it might be profitable to have Alpha Flight spin off in its own team book.. How right he was, except for the fact the Canadians were anything but a team during their first year "together"...
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) The year is 1983 and Jim Shooter just had an idea: let's launch Alpha Flight in their own series. After all, the Canadian superheroes had proven remarkably popular ever since their earliest Uncanny X-Men appearances. One slight problem, as we'll ...

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 ...

In the second chapter of Alpha's Beta Flight, the team becomes more and more like the X-Men by having Wolverine and picking a leader who can barely walk. Also: cowboys and genies, demonic scrambled eggs and John Byrne introdudes the clip show concept to comics.
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In the second entry of Alpha's Beta Flight we continue our review of John Byrne's second year on the book. After killing the team's leader Guardian back in #12, Alpha was in need of a new leader... so, let's get to it, eh?

It's the third and final chapter of Alpha's Initial Outing... The team finally reunites to fight another flight, lose their leader and really spend a lot of quality time hating one another. 
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) The year is still 1984 and John Byrne's about to finish the first twelve issues of Alpha Flight, a series he didn't particularly fancied working on from the word go. But that reluctancy led to an inspired level of daring creativity some would say ...

It's the second part of a look back at John Byrne's first year on Alpha Flight. Snowbird fights ancient horrors during a whiteout, Northstar loses an old gay lover to another man's deadly touch and Puck beats up his physician... for science reasons. Hey kids, comics!
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) The year is still 1983 and John Byrne is bravely soldiering on with Alpha Flight, a series he writes and draws but really doesn't care for. Still, Byrne more than bravely carried on and even came up with some remarkably innovative ideas as we'll ...

Nightcrawler's Nearly Non-Existent Mind Control part II: Here We Go Again!
When we last left Nightcrawler ... The Shadow King had just taken over the band of Neo called the Crimson Pirates to get his hands on their wayward member Bloody Bess. Nightcrawler and the X-Men came to her aid, but the King also took over Marvel's merry mu...
