New Mutants #76: Union

What next for the New Mutants? Well, it's obvious, isn't it? They're going to join up with X-Terminators and live on the Ship. They may not have said so in the pages of New Mutants yet, but in Excalibur they invited Kitty Pryde with them. At least it only takes them until page 4 of New Mutants #76 to remember this.

Meanwhile, on the ship, the adults are out, and the X-Terminators are bringing weird shit from the sea aboard in the form of a horn, which summons an enormous sea-monster when blown. Bloody typical. Also typical is the fact that the New Mutants arrive just at that moment, followed moments later by Namor. It's like Piccadilly Circus around here. 1 There is a Team-Up. Then, the adults of X-Factor (Scott, Jean, Bobby, and Hank) arrive back, and ask what's going on. Skids introduces them, and then Cyclops is all "we've met! Oh, and we were totally going to find you one of these days and invite you to join." They found out the students were being taught by Magneto in what, #1, if not before? *cough* bullshit *cough*

How will this new team work? Will they have personality clashes that they will gradually be able to overcome and work as a fully integrated team? Will Bobby punch things? Will Illyana know English or not? Will X-Factor fail as spectacularly as mentors to the New Mutants as Xavier and Magneto did? Onwards!

1. One of the best things about working near to Piccadilly Circus is the way I can be all "It's like Piccadilly Circus around here" when I spot people I know on the way between the tube station and the office.
