90's By the Numbers

Professor X Loses It in 90's By the Numbers with Onslaught

The X-Men's mentor becomes their greatest foe in this mid 90's classic!



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 tubular fact at a time! This week we're singling out ONSLAUGHT: X-MEN #1 by Scott Lobdell, Mark Waid, Adam Kubert, and Pasqual Ferry. Here's "Traitor To The Cause" by the numbers!

52 months between this footage’s first appearance in UNCANNY X-MEN #287 (April 1992) and its creation in ONSLAUGHT: X-MEN #1 (August 1996)
