Issue(s): X-Men #54
Meanwhile, Xavier gets increasingly weird. Cyclops finds that Xavier has a file on Franklin Richards up on the monitor (although i don't think it's that odd for Xavier to be keeping tabs on a very powerful young mutant, especially one who only recently reverted back to childhood after getting swapped with his future self).
Jean figures out who Onslaught is before Juggernaut, and then tries to get him to leave. But it's too late. Onslaught shows up and grabs Juggernaut's Cyttorak gem.
I want to point out that there was a time (c.f. Marvel Team-Up #150) when the Juggernaut didn't carry the gem around with him everywhere, so i guess it's lucky for Onslaught that he has it. But i do like the idea that Onslaught's plan involves getting the gem. Oh, and we finally get the reveal: Onslaught is Xavier.
Also in this issue, regular Beast continues to try and fail to escape captivity.
Quality Rating: C+
Chronological Placement Considerations: Takes place directly after Uncanny X-Men #334. Continues directly in Onslaught: X-Men, but the same is true of Avengers #400.
Continuity Insert? N
