Continuity Notes

  1. Angel made a connection between Syrin and the X-Man known as Banshee. The narrative states that Banshee has retired from the team. At the time of this story, Banshee overstrained his powers in X-Men #119, rendering him powerless and forcing him to retire. His powers are later restored in Uncanny X-Men #254
  2. During this fight, the Juggernaut mentions his last clash with Colossus. That happened in X-Men #102.
  3. How Sean Cassidy has a daughter he is unaware of is due to the fact that he thought his daughter died along with his wife years earlier as detailed in X-Force #31.
  4. During this sequence, Jessica had just received an update on Siryn, informing her that she was reunited with her father. This happened in Uncanny X-Men #148.
