Characters Appearing: Bart Jones, Black King (Sebastian Shaw), Black Queen (Selene), Catseye, Empath, Firestar, Jetstream, Roulette, Tarot, Warpath, White Queen (Emma Frost)
Issue(s): Firestar #3
Incredibly, Firestar is still put in classes with Empath, and he and Roulette get up to little high school pranks at her expense.
After Empath violated her mind in Uncanny X-Men #193, it seems incredible that Firestar would tolerate his presence at all, or that Frost would think it makes sense to put them together again.
Anyway, the White Queen is helping Sebastian Shaw, the Black King, deal with the threat of Selene, the upstart Black Queen. Frost is training Firestar to be an assassin.
In order to test Firestar's instincts, the White Queen has an assassination staged on her father. She sends Firestar home with her semi-boyfriend, the Hellfire Club goon Randall. The reunion with dad doesn't go so well.
But when the assassins attack, Firestar rises to the occasion.
Wilshire is good with faces...
...but while i find her art a nice change of pace, it's not really suited for super-hero work.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: Issue #3 takes place soon enough after Uncanny X-Men #193 that Sebastian Shaw is just receiving a report of the incident from the White Queen. Empath still has his powers in this issue, placing this before New Mutants #26 when he's admonished for his behavior in Uncanny #193. At the end of issue #3, the White Queen tells Sebastian Shaw that it'll be "a few months at most" before Firestar is ready for a real assignment, so presumably some time takes place between issues #3 and #4.

I've flown from Pittsburgh to New York a couple of times.

You didn't used to have to get to the airport two hours before your flight, too.
