A classic '80s X-Men scene|
Uncanny X-Men was the most popular comic of the 1980s. Here's a scene from 1988's Inferno crossover, which marked the 25th anniversary of the X-Men. Lorna has been possessed by Malice of Mr. Sinister's Marauders, and is attacking the team. How does Ororo handle this?

Emma Frost brainwashes her students and then cooks them breakfast|
Emma Frost has yet again turned-evil-only-not-really and spirited her students out of "danger" to a mansion where she brainwashes them into pliantly accepting their new circumstances and dresses one of them up as a cheerleader (I think you'll be pleasantly surprised who). No, it's not a V.C. Andrews novel, it's Generation X. I'd give you more context, but the talking frog does it for me.
( The ketchup-y secret to how Emma made her millions behind the cut. )

Nubia Then and Now, I of II - Then|
The Wonder Woman mythos, plagued as it has been by "take over, change everything"-itis, has a fair number of supporting cast members who no one has ever heard of. These are the little guys who get a name and a relationship to Diana like they're supposed to be important, but have maybe five minutes of panel time in a run or, perhaps, if they're lucky, a whole storyarc, and then are never heard from again. Many of them, admittedly, were ignored by subsequent writers for a reason; the Sphinx and Quinn and Officer Modini and Bobby Trevor aren't exactly compelling pillars of characterization and interest, and don't have much to recommend themselves for further use.
Some of those lost characters are really damn cool, though, and deserve to be unearthed, brushed off and given a second look and another spin through the canon. One such buried gem is the amazon Nu'bia.
Scans are from Wonder Woman v1 #204-206, Supergirl v1 #9, and Super Friends #25. I cannot believe Super Friends ran longer than Supergirl. There is no justice in the world.

|So I'm still trying to figure out our rules on anthologies. As an example, the story I want to post is eight pages, from Image's Popgun vol. 1. It was also printed in Creatures Of The Id, which clocked in at 30 pages. Due to its short story nature, would I still have to cut it down to 1/3, or could I post all eight?|
