One of my favorite characters from back in the grand days of Uncanny X-Men, when writer Chris Claremont was busting out some seriously purple soap opera shit. I ate it up…and I still do!

Poor old tragic Illyana…if you dig her and/or The New Mutants, I highly recommend The New Mutants: Truth or Death, a 3-issue mini-series that hit in the late ’90s. The story is wonderful and heartbreaking, and Bernard Chang’s art is bee-yoo-tiful!
