By Nathan Smith Each week we highlight a classic storyline told in full inside Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited, the greatest collection of Marvel comics available online! This week we take a look at the timeless X-Men story, the Dark Phoenix Saga!
After their run in with the White Queen, the X-Men decide to investigate and find out the truth behind a small super-secret organization called the Hellfire Club! However, the mission might be more than they can handle when Jason Wyngarde—a.k.a. Mastermind—takes control of Jean Grey and makes her believe she's the Club's evil Black Queen!
Can Mastermind really manage someone who has wielded the awesome power of the Phoenix Force? And as Jean Grey falls deeper and deeper into Mastermind's illusion, the damage to her psyche may be permanent. This may spell the end for Jean Grey, the X-Men and the Hellfire Club—and even if they do survive, what plans do the cosmic Shi'ar have for the Phoenix?
Head over to Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited now to read this classic five part story from the legendary X-Men creative team John Byrne and Chris Claremont.
