It's time to face facts, true believers – the '90s were awesome. The pouches were plentiful, the costumes were impractical, and Marvel Universe dentists made a fortune correcting damages caused by perpetually gritted teeth. Thanks to the power of nostalgia, though, what would once be considered extremely embarrassing can now be called extremely awesome!
With that in mind, we've pulled a Marvel comic from the not-so-modern era and broken it down, one most excellent fact at a time! This week, to celebrate the release of the series' 300th issue, we're singling out X-MEN (1991) #1 by Chris Claremont and Jim Lee. Here's "Rubicon" by the numbers!
407 words in one double-page spread
11 active X-Men, 3 support staff members, and 1 Professor X
10 phrases spoken in French
9 people caught in explosions
5 character redesigns – including Xavier's new Shi'ar-made hover chair
2 decoy robots
1 ultra casual Magneto
