The X-Men are off on a field trip to Europe to reunite with Professor X, who is in pursuit of a foe called Lucifer. The Avengers are after the same man. I think you can predict what happens next.
If your answer was a miscommunication leads to heroes fighting heroes, well, you would have been correct.
The team stops Lucifer, spoiling his diabolical scheme to more or less destroy the world. Good deal. Professor X is back with the team, so I imagine we'll see Cyclops stand down next issue.
- Lucifer is the person who leaves Professor X handicapped
- Thor's hammer can detect evil emanations, whatever those may be
- Magneto is referenced as having telepathic powers once more
- Thor shouts "Avengers Assemble!" - In one of the earliest uses of the phrase
Of all Professor Xavier's crazy wheelchairs, this one might be just about the craziest.
