With the preview pages for this issue being someone getting their brain removed and having a metal dish put in its place the tone for gore was set from the get-go. However, just how far it would go by issue’s end was anything but apparent.
The people in the background of the initial brain surgery scene reappear later in the issue, taking out Rogue and the Scarlet Witch and getting something else that they came for. It’s only a page later we find out not only what it was, but who took it.
If you had “The Red Skull” and “Charles Xavier’s brain” then you guessed right!
Now, can anyone tell me how Skull stopped being a robot?
