In late 1988 and 1989, Marvel’s X-Men line built to a decade in the making universe-wide crossover event, Inferno! The world outside your window became infested with a demonic takeover, literalizing Hell on Earth, and arguably the first and largest all-hands-on-deck Marvel Comics invasion, in what has now become an event staple, from Secret Invasion to Empyre to King in Black. While conceptually this may sounds simple, Inferno is anything but, with years of X-Men storylines and continuity woven into the saga that in so many ways marks the end of both the Chris Claremont and Louis Simonson corners of the X-Men Universe that dominate Marvel’s 1980s.

- What is Inferno and what’s it’s legacy in X-comics today?
- What happens in Mister Sinister’s true debut and his obsession with the Summers/Grey bloodline?
- Is Inferno satisfying as the unofficial END of Chris Claremont’s time of X-Men? It all builds to this – does it work?
- A theory for how Inferno connects to Sinister’s secrets from House and Powers of X
- Much, much more
