In the fifth and final entry of The Eros Avenger, Starfox makes his goodbyes as he heads out into space to do the Eternals' take on Maury. Also: death comes to the Savage Land and a what if that won't ever get made.
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) As 1985 drew to a close, so did Starfox' time with the team. But before the ever flaundering Eternal went a'wandering, there were some loose ends to tie up and as it turns out, those would be the ties that bind. But before Avengers writer Roger ...

And in the third part of our look at the seducin' Starfox time with the Avengers: he finally gets bumped up to full fledged Avenger, tries to score with Tigra, Captain Marvel ánd the Scarlet Witch only to ultimately help an android get off.
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) Eros has settled into his new role as an Avenger trainee, gaining the trust of both the membership and allies like Spider-Man and the FF though we'll never know if he didn't make them like him. Roger Stern then decided to make the Titanian even ...

And in today's entry: The most colorful Avenger of the early 80s takes centerstage. Meet Starfox, the happy-go-lucky Eros of Titan. Hey, you'd smile too if your power is making people love you. Unfortunately, he neglected to mention this when he applied for membership.
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) Their ever-changing nature of their lineup is one of the Avengers' biggest strengths. But you're never sure how a newcomer will do. Some work, others are just plain embarrasing. And then there's the guy who can make you like what he does.

In 1983, John Byrne sent the Fantastic Four on an extended tour of the Negative Zone. Join us as we review their topsy turvy excursion in a world they never made!
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) By 1983, John Byrne had been at the helm of Fantastic Four for roughly a year and a half. Up until then, he'd happily updated the classic status quo of the team. But now he was ready to prove he was as a truly original FF creator by sending the ...

In the fourth and final part of our Storm in the 1980s retrospective... Things come full circle as Ororo regains her powers, dies, gets back to life and even rekindles an old flame or two. 
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) When we last left Storm, she had reached a very important decision that would bring her full circle. Even though she was able to lead the X-Men without her mutant weather powers, recent events like the Morlock Massacre convinced her she had to get ...

In today's entry, Storm loses her powers, finds a love, loses him too, moves to Africa only to get shot and then takes on a new task as cultural bridge between young, old, mutant and human. All in a day's work...
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) The mid 1980s were a time of great change for Storm. After she slowly allowed herself to become a thinking, feeling woman instead of a rigid, emotionless weather goddess, she began to experience a bit of an identity crisis. Thank goodness she still ...

In part IV of the Eros Avenger, we meet Starfox's extended family: the Eternals. They invite him to join their Uni-Mind, which is like getting stuck in the movie Groundhog Day if it was set on Thanksgiving.
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) By 1985, Starfox' tenure on the team was slowly drawing to a close. But man, did he leave a legacy. Apart from accosting at least two teammates, keeping quiet about his seduction powers he'd also quietly turned the Vision into a power hungry ...

In today's entry, we see why Eros should probably have been codename Lucky Fox... He scores with every chick he meets, thanks in no small part to the seduction powers he still hasn't told the Avengers about.
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) Looking for fun, the pleasure seeking Eternal Eros joined Earth's mightiest heroes. He neglected to tell them his primary power was his creepy smile that stimulated your pleasure centers. Then again, the Avengers gave him the silly codename Starfox ...

In the second and final part of our look at the FF's Negative Zone adventure, the team comes home in the equivalent of those "And all I got was this lousy T-shirt" outfits only to find all they'd ever loved at death's door. Hey kids, comics!
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) John Byrne spent most of 1983 having the Fantastic Four explore the Negative Zone. A kinda fun field trip, though things were about to go horribly wrong. Well, they were already pretty bad for Alicia and Franklin who were being abused by Annihilus ...

Now, before we were so rudely interrupted by time, circumstance and a general lack of apathy... We're back for a bit to cover one of Claremont's early 80s tales. Lezzz crank one out for ol' times' sake. But oh my, I don't remember how to do this ...! Then a...

In today's entry... Storm is without her powers but that won't stop her from leading the X-Men... in fights against Freedom Force, the Hellfire Club, the hot pink mutant killer robot Nimrod, a trio of World War II heroes turned vigilantes... and oh yes, the Marauders. If only she'd kept Loki's hammer...
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) When we last left Storm, she had returned to Africa to cope with losing her powers. Back there, she came to terms with "merely" being Ororo Munroe. She set out to act as a bridge between Africa and the west and between mutantkind and humanity.

In today's entry... Starting a lookback at Storm! Of all the X-Men, she had the most complex and captivating character arc of the entire team. Join us for a review of malt shoppes, space whales and semi-sapphic samurais... all leading to that one defining haircut of the 80s. Hold on to your mohawks, there's a Storm approachin'...
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) The most popular X-Man of the 1980s was Wolverine. But the most fascinating member of Xavier's brood has to be Storm. Chris Claremont wrote Ororo Munroe for the entire decade and lovingly put her through a tsunami of change which we'll cover in ...
