Uncanny X-Men #110
Issue(s): Uncanny X-Men #110
The issue starts with the X-Men tradition of playing baseball during their downtime issues. This one gets a little violent, though.
Then Warhawk attacks, trapping most of the team in the Danger Room. Once they actually make it to Warhawk, they beat him relatively easily (he's described as a second-rate Colossus).
Warhawk was being ordered about by a faceless voice. It will turn out to be Sebastian Shaw.

In FOOM#18, Claremont stated that he'd do a story with the X-Men vs. Hurricane(from Captain Britain) if the fill-in wasn't used. Future potential stories he mentioned involved Dr. Synne(also from Captain Britain) and a Deathbird origin by Dave Cockrum.

Shaw likely had help communicating with Warhawk via Emma Frost, as he isn't a telepath.
It was good to see Warhawk again after his appearance in MARVEL PREMIERE #23 (and in shadows in BLACK GOLIATH #2-3). I'm hoping David Walker thinks of using him in the new POWER MAN & IRON FIST series, as he became their foe when he went against them in two issues of Duffy's run on the original book.

This should have been reprinted in Classic X-Men even if it was a fill-in. It was written by Claremont, and the fact that Warhawk bugged Cerebro for Sebastian Shaw is actually a crucial plot point down the line.
