"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
A reader named Chris S. suggested that I devote October to the scariest comic books of all-time, as suggested by you readers out there! Sounds like a plan to me! So all October-long, I’ll be featuring 31 comic book tales of terror, based on YOUR suggestions! So e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org your scary suggestions! Here is an archive of all the comics featured so far!
Reader “World Class Running-Man” suggested, of all things, a 1996 issue of What If…? #87, written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning with artwork by Frank Teran, showed a different path of what could have happened when Sabretooth escaped from captivity in the X-Men’s Mansion in Uncanny X-Men #311.
It opens with Bishop murdered by Sabretooth. Beast and Jubilee try to fix the power at the mansion to bring back the security system, but in the process, Beast does not make it…
What follows is essentially a darker version of the classic Kitty Pryde versus a demon story from Uncanny X-Men #143, with Jubilee using the Danger Room to keep Sabretooth occupied, eventually tricking him to attack the power core of the mansion…
That doesn’t achieve the goal she intended, however…
This leads to the ending of the issue, which is what World Class Running-Man wanted to spotlight in particular..
Teran really did a great job here.
