Kitty's shy, Nightcrawler has a surprise birthday party, and The X-Men & Dr. Strange go to Hell (at least the Dante's Inferno version of Hell) in "X-Men King Size Annual" #4
(November 1980) written by Chris Claremont, penciled by John Romita Jr., inked by Bob McLeod, colors by Glynis Oliver
*The X-Men throw Kurt a surprise party, because everyone's been through a lot lately, and it's good to tell your friends you love them.
*Kitty doesn't feel like part of the team yet, meanwhile Nightcrawler opens a present, which is a glass figurine of himself that explodes in his face and sends his soul to Hell.
*Kitty is uncomfortable w how uncomfortable she is w Nightcrawler. He's very nice to her, but she's 13 and religious, and Kurt looks like a demon. Meanwhile Dr. Strange is at the door, and now I only hear his voice as Benedict Cumberbatch's American accent.
*Strange does some Eye Of Agamotto shit, and The X-Men go to Hell to spring Nightcrawler.
*Storm and Nightcrawler are overwhelmed, and Ororo gets sent to the thieves circle of Hell
*Wolverine finds her in serpent form, and Strange magics her back to being human.
*They think they've reached the end and found Satan, but it was Jimaine posing as Margali to lure the X-Men to Hell so she could force the real Margali into seeing Kurt was not responsible for the murders she demanded his soul for (the same false accusations that had an angry mob trying to lynch him when Professor X first found him in "Giant-Size X-Men" #1
*Crisis averted, the X-Men & Dr. Strange are returned to the birthday party, and Jimaine reveals she's actually... HOLY SHIT - AMANDA SEFTON!!!!! (who I don't think we've seen since "X-Men" #98
*Everyone's happy, safe, Wolverine makes Kitty feel part of the family (and sparks her first feelings for Piotr!! ❤️❤️❤️), and The X-Men celebrate into the night... #XMen #Marvel #Nightcrawler #DrStrange #Storm #Colossus #KittyPryde #Wolverine #ProfessorX #AmandaSefton #ChrisClaremont #JohnRomitaJr #BobMcLeod #GlynisOliver
