You know, we haven’t had a good childbirth here since we dug that issue of MiracleMan. Lots of carnage involving dinosaurs and mutants, but not many childbirths. Here’s one from artist Barry Windsor Smith and Chris Claremont. Remember when Storm lost her powers? She went on a trip to Africa to find herself. She used to be revered as a goddess in Africa when Professor X first found her. This time around she nearly dies – and helps bring new life into the world.
– from Uncanny X-Men # 198
