Characters Appearing: Argent (Samantha Destine), Crimson Crusader (Rory Destine), Cuckoo, Hex (Dominic Destine), Imp (Pandora Destine), Newton Destine, Wallop
Marvel Comics Presents #158 (ClanDestine)
Issue(s): Marvel Comics Presents #158 (ClanDestine story only)
The story just has Rory and Pandora Destine in what turns out to be a training exercise intended to scare them out of their super-heroic inclinations. But it doesn't work.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: This has to take place after the initial ClanDestine arc, when Rory and Pandora discover that their entire family are super-powered. The MCP have it even later, after the entire initial ClanDestine series and the 1996 X-Men & ClanDestine series. Per Don Campbell's comment, Alan Davis himself thought that this should take place after X-Men & ClanDestine.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
According to a post by Alan Davis himself on his Alan Davis Forum website from 10 years ago, he "had always hoped that (the MCP story) would be published after the X-Men ClanDestine in any TPB."
Besides, it fits better there. In X-Men & the ClanDestine #1, the adult Destines are discussing whether to allow the twins to fight crime whereas in the MCP story the training session idea is presented as Walter's last-ditch attempt to scare the twins out of doing something that the adults have agreed to let them do.

Thanks, Don. I guess this entry is just going to have to sit in limbo for a while then.
