There's a shamrock on Earth-Alf Rogue's Flashdance top. Maybe the Joyce reference is some kind of Irish shout out? Makes you wonder why they didn't go with Banshee...
Okay — You asked for it. Those characters have pun-based names, right? Cry-clops, Professor Xylophone, so on? She's wearing a shamrock, reading Joyce…She's Brogue.
Have any X-Men survived the experience? What newer X-Man has gone the longest without being killed?-- MrJM
Certainly provides visual evidence of the regressive nature of comics. Kind of depressing when one thinks about the Watchmen prequel being bandied about.
Probably in keeping with the almost guerilla nature of the X-Men team by the late 80s, the cover to UXM #219 shows a cartoonish but unsettling image of them...you almost genuinely fear for Havok, and I seem to recall a character (not sure who off hand) actually entertaining killing him? Plus, I assume Longshot holding those three blades the way he is is an intentional echoing of Wolverine's claws. Also, Rogue has taken off a glove...they sure mean business!
Jason: D'oh! And grooooan.Harry: Oh yes--that's a genuinely creepy cover.
