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 today's entry... It's all about single issues that pack a punch. Done-in-ones that hold up, from Jarvis force feeding a payphone during Inferno to the Beast and Frogman teaming up to fight the Walrus. It's more fun than any 22 page comic should be allowed to contain!
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) The Marvel Universe is founded on the magic of continued storytelling. Comics are like a spandex soap opera in which every issue is but a 20 page prelude to a sense shattering cliffhanger. Yet, amidst all these continuous crossovers there are ...

Sure, the new F4 movie is pretty bad. No Stan Lee cameo, everyone is a teen, no one laughs and Doctor Doom is an evil blogger/hacker. But don't think the comics version of the Fantastic Four was one instant classic after another. Counting down the FF's most failtastic misadventures of the 1980s!
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) The new Fantastic Four movie is out and if the early reviews are any indication, it's a big ol' bomb. Most fans prefered the traditional comics version and rejected the reimagined FF on principle alone. But let's not kid ourselves: the "classic" ...

In the third act of our Jocasta retrospective... The Avengers at last offer their female metalloid membership, only to promptly forget all about it in the following months. By 1981, she finally decided to end the misery and leave...
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In the third part of our Jocasta retrospective, everyone's overlooked mechanoid finally has her day. After they treated her like a prop for what seemed like forever, the Avengers finally asked Jocasta to join them as a full fledged member.

Remember when being an Avenger meant you were part of a select few? Jocasta sure does! From the late 70s to the early 80s, she tried her darndest to become part of Earth's mightiest, only to be shunned, demeaned, ignored and conveniently forgotten at every turn...
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In today's Marvel Universe, you're more likely to catch membership to Earth's mightiest than the common cold. That makes the story of Jocasta all the more tragic. She desperately wanted to join onlyt to be snubbed and ignored throughout the 1980s.

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 ...

It's the second and final part of our look at the top ten least likely FF storylines ever to make it to the big screen. If you thought Doc Doom as a surly hacker was bad, wait til you meet a ten year old Doom substitute. All that plus definite proof the Richards family shouldn't reproduce and John Byrne rehashing an old Uncanny X-Men trope. But bear him no malice... The only victims here were invisible after all.
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) Continuing our look back at 1980s Fantastic Four stories that are as big a bomb as the newly released F4 movie. Sure, the team weren't teenagers and in those days Johnny and Sue were still blood relatives... But even tradition doesn't guarantee ...

It's the final part of our Jocasta retrospective. Every good story ends with a tragic death, so you're in luck... Everyone's most ignored metalloid kicks the bucket twice!
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In the fourth and final part of our Jocasta retrospective, the metal madame strikes out on her own, only to find life outside of Avengers Mansion ain't what it cracked up to be. And boy, does she end up cracked a lot.

It's part II of our Jocasta retrospective. She's a hip and happening metallic 80s gal who just wants to belong and ends up getting ignored, forgotten and overlooked at every turn. 
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) Starting out as "the bride of Ultron" in the mid 70s, the sentient robot Jocasta quickly sided with the Avengers against her creator and lover. She moved into the mansion, aided them on numerous missions and proved capable, tough and a true heroine ...

In the second and final part of our look at Ultron's 1980s appearances, the killer robot tries to bond with the man he'd been trying to kill since day 1... briefly gets stuck inside a TV & a PC and then suffers from a bout of cyber-schizophrenia. 
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In the second and final part of our look at Ultron's 1980s appearances, the adamantium assassin is halfway through the decade when he starts to suffer from a complex combination of daddy issues and cybernetic schizophrenia.
