This is another Marvel Pocketbook Continuing on from Magneto Triumphant. It continues the story of the X-Men stowing away on a Japanese fishing vesicle only to enter Japan and realize a massive earthquake has hit it (I read this book a few weeks before the current disaster in Japan so it might be a little to close to home) They enter Japan and realize there's nothing Natural about the disaster and fight the foe responsible. While this is going on Jean Gray and the professor are in New York and the other X-Men in Japan them each thinking the other is dead. The professor leaves earth and goes with Lilandra to the Sha'ir galaxy. This book also starts Jean Grays seduction into the Dark Phoenix with her being slowly seduced by a telepath but this is only a side story and isn't the main concern of any of the books until later. This book has a Murderworld story with a cameo by Spiderman and another story with a cameo by Luke Cage and a Classic Akon story. The chapters are listed below

The Submergence of Japan
Twas the night before Christmas
Wanted: Wolverine Dead or Alive
Shoot out at the Stampede
Cry for the Children
Listen - This One Will Kill You
He Only Laughs When I Hurt
A Fire In The Sky

All in all once again another great book. Although I admit I have a sentimentality for these old Claremont stories. The only real problem is the problem a lot of classic comics have in over explaining in Dialouge what the art already does. And trying to re cap the story of the previous issue and who all the characters are in each story which is a little tiresome (but after reading a couple issues you can always see where thats happening and just skip it) otherwise everything else is fine. Great characters, great stories and storytelling and great artwork and cheap price for what your getting. So recommended once again

Classic Claremont / Byrne X-Men stories from late 1970s and early 1980s - well-told and tightly plotted, with the shadow of the Dark Phoenix arc beginning to show. A treat to read again.
