Epic Beards of Reveiw: The Uncanny X-Men #201 (Comic-a-Day #15)
The Uncanny X-Men #201 JAN 86 (w) Chris Claremont (a) Rick Leonardi and Wilche Portacio
This issue's title, Duel, hits us on all sorts of levels, and it starts with a baby. While all of the other mutants are googling over this newborn, Cyclops is shown looking quite displaced in the upper right-hand corner of the first splash page. He's having a hard time dealing with this, I suppose.
I get where he's coming from; honest, I do. They say the mother goes through a bunch I can't vouch for, but I've personally gone through an amalgamation of fears, tears and beers over the last year. Seems to me one's mortality is finally decided once that kid makes himself known.
Sure, Cyclops is worried about Professor X and the future of the school at the hands of someone like Magneto, but my if he didn't call his wife while he and the team were in Paris, while every other team member made sure to do so.
HIS WIFE WAS PREGNANT, people. Are you blind, Scott? Seeing red, perhaps?
Scott's not sure if he belongs on the team, and he's not only confronted about it by Storm, but by his wife as well. Looks like there's going to be a throw-down. The Danger Room takes center stage the rest of the issue Cyclops against a power-downed Storm. Who shall be the victor?
There's some other stuff that went on here, but Scott was so pensive the entire time, it was hard to focus on anything else.
