Shadowy Flashback Episode!
While most of the X-Men try to sail away from the Savage Land (they are eventually picked up by some friendly sailors), Jean and the professor each mourn the supposed deaths of their comrades in their own way. For Xavier, this entails an extensive flashback story set in Egypt:
Hey look! It’s baby Storm! She steals Xavier’s wallet. Xavier tracks her back to a place that looks exactly like Bogart’s bar from Casablanca. He runs into Sydney Greenstreet, I mean Amahl Farouk:
Farouk is a bad telepath and there is the inevitable confrontation on the astral plane, with awesome armor and everything:
Xavier wins, and Farouk dies (not really, of course). Xavier’s alien princess girlfriend Lilandra convinces him the only way to get over the X-Men’s deaths is to run away to space with her.
Epilogue: Jean Grey runs into her roomie Misty Knight. Misty is headed to Tokyo for a job. I wonder if that storyline goes anywhere.
