    Illyana Rasputin is a young girl who has seen much. The younger sister of the mutant Colossus, Illyana has spent half her life trapped in the realm of Limbo, a hellish purgatory ruled by the demon Belasco. In this strange, satanic world, one hope exists- an alternate dimension Storm, here to save Illyana from serving as Belasco’s consort. Will Storm of Limbo be able to reclaim her apprentice’s youth? Or has Illyana become too much of Magik, her demonic, unrestrained self?

    Illyana is Peter's little sister; a mutant, and consort to a devil. In a flashback to Uncanny X-Men # 160, the X-Men attempt to rescue Illyana from the sorcerer Belasco, but he manages to pull the child into the hellish pocket dimension known as Limbo. Belasco plans to use Illyana as the instrument through which to summon the Elder Gods, in order to take over the universe. An alternate reality Storm and Kitty Pryde manage to rescue Illyana from Belasco, but not before he is able to take a portion of her soul, corrupting it, and transforming it into a Bloodstone. Belasco then gives Illyana the Beatrice Medallion, now possessing the first of five Bloodstones needed to summon the Elder Gods.

    Magik: Storm And Illyana # 1 0

    Truly a ground-breaking addition to the Marvel Universe, Magik: Storm And Illyana is the series responsible for turning me  on to comic books in the first place. It tells the story of Illyana Rasputin, the little sister of X-Man Colossus, of her abduction from the Xavier Institute For Higher Learning by the sorcerer Belasco, and her subsequent training in the otherdimensional realm of Limbo by alternate reality versions of X-Men Kitty Pryde...

    Without having read UXM 160, this story still is powerful in its own way.  Is it possible Chris Claremont is underrated as a writer?  Some aspects of the story are melodramatic at best, but he has an impressive ability to root out powerful emotions in a rapid time.  The issue would probably make more sense had I read 160 first, and many readers will want to do so (if possible), but if not, Claremont's narration allows any reader to pick up right where he is.  The conflicts between alternate Oror...
