Such a badass woman. If you’re one of those people just dipping their toes into comic book pop culture, I can’t recommend the Uncanny X-Men Omnibus (by Chris Claremont and a few artists) enough.

She had a hot costume back then (designed by the late, great Dave Cockrum), but her punk rock costume from the 80s – and so fitting for the times – is her best look.

Here are the three X-Men collages I’ve completed to date.
