We are back in the pages of X-Men for this amazing Katie and Wolverine adventure. Uncanny X-Men #205 is an amazing and dark issue that features body horror, cyborgs, sacrificing humanity, torture, violence, death and, our favorite, REVENGE!. Of course you want to have a kidnapped five year old on hand for these shenanigans.

  1. Oh, this issue. Oh my goodness, this issue. The artwork absolutely gorgeous, and creep factor 5000. Beyond powerful. Simply amazing.

    Is it weird that, even though it only has Katie, I think this is the better Power Pack guest appearance? Or that I think it’s a slight to call it “A solo adventure starring Wolverine”? Um, who had more dialog and soliloquies in the issue? Energizer, that’s who! Katie is stellar throughout, and we get into her head a lot more than in PP where she’s sharing the stories with her family. I just love how Claremont handled her.

    I had a weird history with Lady Deathstrike as I’d bought all of her appearances up to this point: the Daredevil story arc (just on a whim, not regularly collecting DD), the Alpha Flight 2-parter guest starring Wolverine, and then this issue. (Both AF and X-Men were regular buys.) Nowadays, it would have been built up more into a huge arc to establish her animosity with Logan, and to give her the powers. By comparison, this was really quick. I almost prefer the old way, cut to the chase. Besides, more issues of this kind of body horror when I was younger? No thanks!

    Now I was hoping for this to come up, but maybe y’all don’t know (Tim-splaining alert!) that Reavers Cole, Mason, and Reese had one other appearance between their ill-fated debut and this issue. It was Marvel Graphic Novel #4: The New Mutants. Donald Pierce, formerly of the Hellfire Club, was the bad guy in that story, and it revealed that he had refitted the 3 goons with cyborg parts as well. So Claremont had decided somewhere to keep these shmoes around looking for REVENGE against Mutants in general and Wolverine specifically. Nice to have some guilt-free mokes to slice-n-dice.

    I dig it when you guys say “REVENGE!” Can I say it? Excellent! Hold on. *cough-cough* a-hem. REVANCHE! Aw dang it!

    Later, Pack-men!

    1. Wait, you are telling me that there are comics out there that AREN”T Power Pack?!?! I need to take a moment…where has this information been the last year.

      Revanche…almost got it buddy, a little more practice and I think you will have it down pat. (inner monologue: Oh Tim, Tim, Tim, Tim, Tim, Tim.)
