Example text

When a new mutant appears on Professor X’s mutant tracking computer Cerebro, the X-Men and Magneto both race to recruit him. But the figure turns out to be the cosmic being the Stranger, who whisks Magneto and the Toad off into space. This seemingly ends the menace of Magneto, albeit only temporarily. As for the Stranger, he could be read as the introduction of some New Age philosophy to the Marvel Universe, something more frequently explored in the pages of Doctor Strange than X-Men. ” (Issues #12 and #13).

Jean’s homemaking skills, such as filling in for the cook (issue #6), serving as a nurse (issues #4 and 13), and even using her powers in a sewing exercise (issue #8), reveal her to be an ideal potential spouse, which overlaps into the sphere of a love interest. All the men on the team do express romantic interest in Jean in one form or another, from numerous comments on her attractive appearance to Beast stealing a kiss (issue #1) or Angel sweeping her away for a “date” when they have to investigate a carnival (issue #3) (11, 53).

The confrontation over a sibling rivalry might also be interpreted as a commentary on the Vietnam War, the younger generation fighting the battles started by the older one, but this may be stretching things a bit. The fact remains that antagonists like the aliens Lucifer and the Stranger or the mystically powered Juggernaut exist outside the initial mutant agenda of the series and are increasingly empty signifiers. They fall somewhere between the gap of the consensus culture and the counterculture but are evidence of Marvel Comics attempting to negotiate the trends of the day.
