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 radical fact at a time! This week we're singling out UNCANNY X-MEN #312 by Scott Lobdell and Joe Madureira. Here's "Romp" by the numbers!
20 blocks away from the action
8 instances of someone calling Storm by a nickname: Yukio uses "Wind Rider" 2 times, Gambit says "Stormy" 6 times
6 hands and 3 faces on 1 Phalanx entity
5 kinetically charged playing cards
4 uses of weather as a weapon: 2 lightning bolts, 1 gust of wind, and 1 extreme drop in temperature
3 belts around Storm’s waist
2 mentions of the Bright Lady
1 "By the goddess!"
Ororo Munroe's next big adventure begins today in STORM #1!
