Havok: "Now watch as I River Dance to my victory!"


LakerJeff78

Alex.....your legs are moving like crazy while your upper body remains creepily still. What manner of demon possesses you???


Trixx1-1

probably emma, she know what them legs do


Gabronsito

funny you should say that. This *is* from the original Inferno where they are possessed by demons from Ilyana's realm


LakerJeff78

No I know. Part of the joke.


Gabronsito

🤦‍♂️


Ecclectro

Did the demons also erase his nose?

RTK4740

>e-read of old school Claremont era…the BDSM imagery seems to mostly be during John Byrne’s run, then later on with Inferno, which was more Silvestri’s run. There’s a lot less of it I think this is some awesome payback to dress male subordinates in a skimpy, sexy way. Loved it. Go Goblin Queen!


gothcrab

so sassy


DaddyMarMar

The sassiest


GroundbreakingTax259

To be fair, there are a few panels from the *Inferno* storyline that stick out. Daredevil being strangled by a vacuum cleaner, for instance.


SuddenTerrible_Haiku

Ngl I'm kinda into it Someone give me a whole comic of all the men fighting and posing like the women typically are portrayed doing


Sunoraiza

You might like jjba then lol Given it's a manga/Anime, but yeah, your wish is fulfilled


hndrwx

the day I learned that Araki uses female fashion models as reference my life changed


SuperSubZero13

He does? That makes sense


hndrwx

Yes, [here is an example](https://i.pinimg.com/originals/7a/34/6b/7a346b0b638acf7df216f8360a1dfdd9.jpg).


SuperSubZero13

Cool


PicquitoKeato

If you’ve never seen that video where someone swapped Batman and Catwoman’s character models in Arkham Knight I’d suggest you watch: https://youtu.be/JUWBoYwAgaE


SuddenTerrible_Haiku

I never knew how badly I needed sensual batman in my life Stoic catwoman is doing it for me, too lol


RadragonX

Agreed, this right here is why the Hawkeye initiative is one of my new favourite things.


stasersonphun

The Hawkeye Project?


mightyalrighty87

Did his suit get blasted off or is this a fashion choice


DarkAlphaZero

Started as battle damage, became a fashion icon


ParimL

Madelyne Pryor literally dragged Alex behind her demon carriage until he got a better costume


DaddyMarMar

It got blasted the x men were getting there asses whooped


Vacartu

If you're on Maddy's team, you need to up your costume game.


bloodredcookie

Entire-Weakness-2938

Despite his reputation for sneaking in queer subtext and not-quite-subtextual kink, this particular issue isn’t even Chris Claremont’s writing! This one was Louise & Walt Simonson! (BTW on a bit of a re-read of old school Claremont era…the BDSM imagery seems to mostly be during John Byrne’s run, then later on with Inferno, which was more Silvestri’s run. There’s a lot less of it with Dave Cockrum or Paul Smith or John Romita Jr. Outside of Inferno, Silvestri’s run wasn’t necessarily rife with it either. Mind control and telepathic dominance is maybe a different story though…)


lonewolflondo

Claremont had a thing for slavery too didn't he? I recall a lot of people enslaved, Rachel as a Hound etc.


Entire-Weakness-2938

Claremont’s slavery imagery is more BDSM slavery than racial slavery, but yeah that’s a thing too. And it was *definitely* a thing with Rachel both as a hound pre-UXM and in Mojo’s world pre-Excalibur. Re. Rachel at least, the actual enslavement mostly happened in flashbacks (her time as a hound) or off-panel altogether (her time in Mojoworld.) She didn’t wear that outfit when she was in Uncanny X-Men (late Paul Smith and early JRR era.) The spikes and leather was in the Hound flashbacks n such, started with Alan Davis’s first Excalibur run. Aside from that outfit (and yeah, that outfit is a LOT) Excalibur has a lot more queer imagery than BDSM imagery, I would say. (The Claremont & Alan Davis eras of Excalibur are queer as hell, lol.) The subtext is always there, but how overt it is seems to be more an artist-by-artist basis. Now, as far as characters being *captured* and held prisoner by the bad guys, and *that* sort of imagery? That’s in tons of comic books and just genre stuff in general, so we should be careful to not assume it’s always kinky, 😂


MrCookie2099

>That’s in tons of comic books and just genre stuff in general, so we should be careful to not assume it’s always kinky, Or be ready to assume its all kinky


Entire-Weakness-2938

I just remembered Xavier’s outfit when captured by the Morlocks 😂


lonewolflondo

So random...who took the time to change him??? I remember a lot of implied slave stuff, that mutant...Worm(?) that gooped people and took over their minds. I didn't read X-Treme but didn't Bogan (?) have slaves? I just remember it being a thing that stuck out to me.


JoshAustin610

He had gotten beaten pretty badly by some anti-mutant students, so his clothes were presumably all bloody; I'm sure Callisto put them in a plastic bag for him to take home like at the hospital.


pierowmaniac

Is this classic Inferno? Who am I kidding, of course it fucking is.


Primestudio

I always think what was the conversation between editors, writers, and artists here. Fly on the wall man.


gdex86

Ann Nocenti has gone on record saying she had to talk Claremont down from sending Xavier to a hellfire club event in drag. Shit. Was. Wild.


MrCookie2099

Sigh... what could have been...


hero-ball

What are you doing step bro?


panpopticon

I think it was the CerebroCast that said all the Summers brothers are raging typhoons of homoerotic energy under a thin veneer of aggressive heterosexuality.


gdex86

They are also the subbiest subs ever to lick masters boots.


MrCookie2099

So... hard Bi then?


Hellgrammitesquad

You can’t catch me, Gay Thoughts!

Jojo pose Havok. Jojo pose Havok.


seanofkelley

It's time to bring back this, Havok's most iconic look, as his regular costume.


ZealousIdealAddickt

But in hot pants

Ohhhhhhh, thank you, for this. I did not know I needed this discussion and validation. YES I THINK OF THIS PANEL A LOT! Reading the comments was like therapy. Thank you.

ApatheticHeretic_101

Walt Simonson having some fun...I LOVE Inferno. One of the quirkiest runs out there. Especially all the crossovers in the other books!


BestGirlNonon

hmmm, what is it they say about dating Polaris? 🤔💅


Lestial1206

What do they say?


ThanatosTheory

Dating Polaris is gay.


tywhy87

Praise Cerebro!


MrCookie2099

What's this a reference to? I want in on Cerebro cult.


tywhy87

Cerebro is a podcast hosted by a queer man who goes X-character by character with a guest, almost always a queer person, someone in the comics/publishing industry, or both.


Lestial1206

Ok....that makes 0 sense but if thats what "they" say.


ZealousIdealAddickt

She dated iceman and colossus, although technically gay colossus is from a different universe than either universes he was with Lorna or Kitty


canadian190

Is there more panels to this? Must find this on marvel unlimited. I need further intense research


DaddyMarMar

X factor issue 39

Cyclops: “goddamn it, Alex…”


sleepencil

Havok was my favorite character, but yet after seeing this somehow he just became the thing above favorite


Gaetanoninjaplatypus

Can anyone confirm? This looks like a last second editorial decree. That looks like maddy got switched to havok with a sharpie. I’d really like to know…


RTK4740

That would be an awesome explanation.


MrCookie2099

That head does look really off. Both proportionally and the face details. Some careful inkwork could plausibly have switched this from Maddie to Havok.


jforde3232

Someone tell why when I see this I see dio from jjba.

pnuthead23

Are there any more pics of Havok in the Outback walking around in... rags? I have a memory (not sure if it's real) of Havok and Maddy sliding into the shadows in a shed in the Outback to get it on. My horny teenage self was 🔥. I'm into whatever queer subtext we can also get out of Alex angst or more for Scott, too. Havok, keep being a hot mess. Here for it. It was all so weird and kinky back then.

You really shouldn’t.

🤷🏼‍♂️🤷🏼‍♂️


Nkael

Lol sorry I’m on mobile and I never clicked to open it up lol. All I saw was awkward feminine Havoc. Opening it up shows more nuance to your post 😂
