A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 317
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!
I figure that Friday the 13th is a good time to go waaaay out the expected group of moments, and use a moment that a reader (named J) requested – a moment from, of all things, the epilogue to X-Cutioner’s Song in Uncanny X-Men, featuring Jubilee and Professor X!
Scott Lobdell clearly enjoyed working in character driven issues, and in the midst of all the big crossovers he was forced to work with, he kept having one-off issues where the various characters would just interact with each other.
This was one of those issue.
After the events of X-Cutioner’s Song, Professor Xavier has temporarily gained the ability to walk. It will fade soon, though, but he is taking the time to use his legs for the last time before they go away. Jubilee runs into him and decided to take him roller blading.
The art by a young Brandon Peterson is a bit rough, but the sweetness of Lobdell’s story still prevails, I believe…
That was a pretty nice moment, really.
