We've progressed a bit further than that by now, or maybe this is just how he checks. Wolverine makes that point himself, actually. Jean is confused, like she's just now realizing what's happening despite having been kissing Wolvie for two big splash panels, but she certainly isn't interested in being fought over. As far as reunions go, this one is full of distrust. For one thing, we saw in the last issue of X-Men that they are all influenced to some degree by the demons of Inferno. On top of that, X-Factor thought the X-Men were dead. And they were just fighting Madelyne, who has now changed back into sheep's clothing, and of course the X-Men assume the worst. Especially since the X-Men are only aware of what X-Factor has been up to thanks to their ad campaigns. Plus, there's always been some animosity between some of them.

I feel like Claremont is pretty fair to Cyclops. The way he writes Scott feels to me like it's meant to show that Scott legitimately wasn't aware that anything bad was happening to Madelyne. This is in contrast to earlier lines from Maddie and indeed, more here that put the blame squarely on Cyclops and in turn felt like a proxy for Claremont's unhappiness with the existence of the X-Factor book and plot points therein. Granted Havok takes Madelyne's side, but he's already under her thrall. Madelyne then summons N'astirh and she sets up a choice where her own life is being seemingly threatened by him while Jean is being attacked by her "parents", telling Cyclops he has to choose who to save. Cyclops zaps Jean's parent-demons first, and then Havok jumps in the way to attack N'astirh, which, according to Scott, prevented him from saving both. Madelyne takes Havok away with her, making him her Goblin Prince. Colossus, who had been away helping his sister against S'ym, shows up, not realizing that both Madelyne and Havok are on the demons' side now. And Jean senses where baby Nathan is and realizes that N'astirh and Madelyne mean to sacrifice him in a ritual there as we saw in X-Factor 37, Madelyne is upset that Nathan is reaching out telepathically to Jean. It's at this point that we see that Rogue is immune to the transmode virus thanks to her encounter with Magus. Walter Lawson has been noting that Colossus is also demonstrating immunity to the transmode virus see comments on Uncanny X-Men and New Mutants 73 but it seems to me that while Rogue's immunity is due to her encounter with Magus, for Colossus it's more about the general anti-magic properties of Colossus' steel body and pure spirit. That said, the rest of the X-characters don't have any experience fighting techno-organic creatures it was only Rogue and Colossus, along with Nightcrawler, that fought the Magus , so Storm has Psylocke transfer their memories to everyone else. Jean's telepathic powers have been slowly returning, but her brief mind-meld with Psylocke shows that she's not all the way there yet. The Beast's idea is to use Iceman's cold powers to accelerate N'astirh's techno-organic state, like a super-conductor, and then quickly withdraw that ice, causing the quick temperature change to cause his circuits to fail. It's a nice battle with lots of cool power tricks. Storm is the one to strike the final blow, and notice her response to N'astirh's request for mercy. Not sure if that's meant to reflect their still-demon influenced states or the difference in attitude between the two groups. The expectation was that the effects of Inferno would withdraw once N'astirh was defeated, but that isn't the case. They still have Madelyne to deal with. I have to confess that i like that this issue features the defeat of N'astirh not by some kind of debate or clever ploy or mystic trick but just by the two super-teams combining their powers. I'm still a fanboy at heart. Lots of good moments here too, like both Dazzler and Rogue separately lamenting the fact that their once-crush, Angel, has gone bald and blue.
