So… this Emma Frost lady. Pretty cool. You know her type. Takes what she wants.

Here’s where what she wants becomes Scott Summers, Cyclops.

#9 – New X-Men Annual 2001

Weird thing – this issue was done in a “wide screen” format… which worked. Odd to see it now in the Collected edition… but it’s a cool idea.

All of this and much more. A classic issue – how long did it take for them to retcon much of it? About 5 issues. All of a sudden it wasn’t Magneto but “Xorn” disguised as Magneto disguised as Xorn? Huh? Bad form. However, this issue is a modern milestone. I remember being floored reading it, and that’s rare. Easily one of the best single issues of comic books this decade.
