Coerced by the Corporation, swashbuckler Donovan Flint has no choice but to join in the search for an ancient artifact. A surprisingly flat story by David Michelinie, with inconsistent but potential-laden art from the team of Don Newton and Bob Layton.
Angel and Iceman must team with the Hulk after a Sentinel Master Mold crashes the former X-Men’s double date. The old CPL Gang of Roger Stern, John Byrne and Bob Layton reteam for this fun, done-in-one outing.
Contrary to its striking cover, this issue actually features three unconnected – and largely uninspired – tales featuring Batman, Aquaman and the Legion of Super-Heroes. From creative talent including Gerry Conway, Paul Levitz, Don Newton and others.
The X-Men struggle to free themselves from imprisonment, then must battle Magneto within the heart of an active volcano. Assured work from the classic creative team of Chris Claremont, John Byrne and Terry Austin.
Under the influence of Crossfire’s Undertaker Machine, Hawkeye and Mockingbird are soon forced to battle each other to the death. A surprise conclusion helps, but, ultimately, Mark Gruenwald’s auteur opus fails to meet its lofty aspirations.
Now broke and homeless, Hawkeye and Mockingbird continue to come under attack from hired guns sent by Cross Technological Enterprises. Writer/artist Mark Gruenwald serves up some weak villains and a bland story for this miniseries’ penultimate issue.
Hawkeye teams with Mockingbird to strike back at Cross Technological Enterprises, and soon finds himself a target of the Silencer. A competent-but-flat chapter of the Hawkeye story from the team of Mark Gruenwald and Brett Breeding.
Captured by Magneto, the X-Men are soon battling for their lives within a secret base under an active volcano. The legendary X-Men creative team of Chris Claremont, John Byrne and Terry Austin serve up an electric, issue-long fight scene.
The X-Men face off with Eric the Red and Firelord with perhaps the fate of the universe in the balance. This one strains the suspension of disbelief, but it’s still a strong outing from the regular creative team of Chris Claremont and Dave Cockrum.
