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!

  1. The classic Illyana was recently resurrected with mixed results. It was definitely worth reading for fans of the old days, though.

  2. Man I ain’t heard the name Chris Claremont since oldest times. I remember in the old X-Men issues, they used to advertise for his then-badass-looking books about flying and action and EXPLOSIONS and HEROES ON THE JACKET STANDING WITH DEFIANT ENNUI.

    They would probably not look badass today.
