Looking over that, it’s interesting that all but one of them is from X-Men.
(And that one is from Alpha Flight, who of course sprang out of X-Men.)

Well, ever since the glory days of Claremont, X-Men has been pretty notorious for all the forgotten plot threads left lying around, so it makes sense that it would be all over this feature. Still, it is funny that it’s almost ALL X-Men stuff!

The Masque one is an Avengers one.

But yes, this feature is going to be mostly X-Men stuff, since that was such a famous aspect of their stories for so many years.

When I read Masque, I thought you meant the Morlock.
Still have to catch up on reading the feature. :)

And, yeah, I agree that X-Men is notorious for dangling plotlines. Well, Claremont is.
