Yo Havok, save some bitches for the rest of us
Havok: "Now watch as I River Dance to my victory!"
Alex.....your legs are moving like crazy while your upper body remains creepily still. What manner of demon possesses you???
probably emma, she know what them legs do
funny you should say that. This *is* from the original Inferno where they are possessed by demons from Ilyana's realm
No I know. Part of the joke.
Did the demons also erase his nose?
The yassification of Alex Summers
Maddy Pryor presents "Himbo Havok"
>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!
To be fair, there are a few panels from the *Inferno* storyline that stick out. Daredevil being strangled by a vacuum cleaner, for instance.
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
You might like jjba then lol
Given it's a manga/Anime, but yeah, your wish is fulfilled
the day I learned that Araki uses female fashion models as reference my life changed
He does? That makes sense
Yes, [here is an example](https://i.pinimg.com/originals/7a/34/6b/7a346b0b638acf7df216f8360a1dfdd9.jpg).
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
I never knew how badly I needed sensual batman in my life
Stoic catwoman is doing it for me, too lol
Agreed, this right here is why the Hawkeye initiative is one of my new favourite things.
The Hawkeye Project?
Did his suit get blasted off or is this a fashion choice
Started as battle damage, became a fashion icon
Madelyne Pryor literally dragged Alex behind her demon carriage until he got a better costume
It got blasted the x men were getting there asses whooped
If you're on Maddy's team, you need to up your costume game.
Best Havok panel or Very best Havok panel?
Best marvel panel
Stupid sexy havoc
"Just remember kids, it's not an X Team unless at least 2 of you are fighting for the same clone."
Havok jojo pose
Yeah didn't expect him to go full Dio
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…)
Claremont had a thing for slavery too didn't he? I recall a lot of people enslaved, Rachel as a Hound etc.
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, 😂
>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
I just remembered Xavier’s outfit when captured by the Morlocks 😂
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.
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.
Is this classic Inferno?
Who am I kidding, of course it fucking is.
I always think what was the conversation between editors, writers, and artists here. Fly on the wall man.
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.
Sigh... what could have been...
What are you doing step bro?
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.
They are also the subbiest subs ever to lick masters boots.
So... hard Bi then?
You can’t catch me, Gay Thoughts!
Jojo pose Havok.
Jojo pose Havok.
It's time to bring back this, Havok's most iconic look, as his regular costume.
But in hot pants
Make more mutants.
Scott: "Man, just...what the actual fuck?"
Alex gives off Dio Brando energy here.
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.
Certified Goblin Prince behaviour 💅
My favorite is the Ariana Grande thigh high boots
Pulling. Them. Off.
Sleeps with his brother's wife, and the ego goes through the roof...
Walt Simonson having some fun...I LOVE Inferno. One of the quirkiest runs out there. Especially all the crossovers in the other books!
hmmm, what is it they say about dating Polaris? 🤔💅
What do they say?
Dating Polaris is gay.
What's this a reference to? I want in on Cerebro cult.
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.
Ok....that makes 0 sense but if thats what "they" say.
She dated iceman and colossus, although technically gay colossus is from a different universe than either universes he was with Lorna or Kitty
Is there more panels to this? Must find this on marvel unlimited. I need further intense research
X factor issue 39
This looks like one bizarre adventure....
Cyclops: “goddamn it, Alex…”
Havok was my favorite character, but yet after seeing this somehow he just became the thing above favorite
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…
That would be an awesome explanation.
That head does look really off. Both proportionally and the face details. Some careful inkwork could plausibly have switched this from Maddie to Havok.
Someone tell why when I see this I see dio from jjba.
Slim’s Bizarre Adventure
silvestri knew what he was doing
Too bad that's not him
you re totally right, i have sin
No it's okay don't be so hard on yourself
Who is it?
He definitely knew what he was doing 
Never liked that panel
"I wish you weren't so awkward, bud"
Such a dick!
You better werq!
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.
Liquid Snake from Metal Gear Solid
You really shouldn’t.
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 😂
