A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 242
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we look at the powerful closing (well, more or less the closing) of Marvel’s fifth graphic novel, God Loves, Man Kills…
The one-shot, written by Chris Claremont and drawn by Brent Anderson, has the evil Reverand Stryker using the mind of Professor X to basically use a Cerebro-like device, only instead of FINDING mutants, it uses Xavier’s brain to KILL all mutants. However, Stryker’s assistant realizes that it affects her – she is, naturally, a bit unnerved by this turn of events…
“The” moment for me is always where Stryker points at Nightcrawler, but I suppose the human cop shooting Stryker might best be described as “the” moment of this particular sequence.
It’s strong work either way.
