X-MEN (1991) (#1-275) (MARVEL) #142 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: X-Men (1991) #142
"Assault on Weapon Plus Part 1 Brimstone and Whiskey" is written by Grant Morrison and drawn by Chris Bachalo and Tim Townsend. The White Queen is dead; her diamond-hard form shattered by a specially engineered bullet. And while one of the Stepford Cuckoos, Esme, has been identified as the culprit, suspicions briefly turned on Cyclops, who had been having a psychic affair with Emma Frost. Now Cyclops, in an attempt to drown his sorrows in alcohol, spends a lost evening at the Hellfire Club, where leather-clad strippers remind him of Jean Grey and only serve to drive him further into depression. Having Sabretooth sniffing around his table isn't lightening his mood either.

Enter Wolverine, who hasn't come to bring Scott Summers back to the X-Mansion, but rather to recruit him on a mission with the mysterious Fantomex to unlock the secrets of the Weapon Plus program which may answer Logan's questions about his past. In order to win Cyclops over, however, Wolverine must first drink him under the table and convince him that his mental tryst with Emma Frost was a symptom of his inability to open up. He also tries to convince the X-Men leader that Jean Grey has wanted all along for Scott to express his true emotions; there was no need to seek out a wild affair with another woman. Most of this is lost on Cyclops, however, who ends up heels over head drunk.
