ADVENTURES OF THE X-MEN (1996) #11 - Plot Synopsis


Adventures of the X-Men #11
Guest-starring the Man-Thing. The beautiful and curvaceous Storm and Jean Grey stand in stark contrast to the oozing greyness of the Everglades swamp. But it's there that the mutant duo find themselves after Vanisher teleported them from Mojo's realm last issue. And after battling off a gaggle of hillbillies, Ororo and Jean encounter the tragic Man-Thing, a shambling moss-covered mass of emotions that was once a man. His tragedy touches Jean Grey, who senses he really a misunderstood creature who stands between evil and good as a strangely misshapen and nearly non-sentient guardian.

But in nearby Citrusville, Fla., the townspeople have little more sense than the swamp monster. Each seems filled with self-loathing and despair. A silver-tongued out-of-towner seems the source of the negative emotions and Storm and Jean Grey soon find out the stranger is actually D'Spayre, the demon who works for the ultra-powerful Dweller in Darkness. It's up to the X-Men and the Man-Thing to stop Despair's plans to feed power to his other-dimensional master. Meanwhile, Lilandra warns Charles Xavier that the M'Kraan crystal again poses a threat to the Shi'ar and the entire universe. "Tower of Despair" is written by Ralph Macchio with pencils by Yancey Labat.
