The New Mutants Key Issue Comics Part 2

Here we are with Part 2 to this New Mutants Key Issue Comics List. Many of these are sleepers and haven't awaken from their slumber just yet. Most are minor key issues, but since I know some that visit here are just looking for key issues despite whether they're investment comic worthy, I'll try to list as many as possible.

If you missed Part 1, just click the blue link, but if you already read it, continue on!

  • Magik joins team
Illyana Rasputin, a.k.a Magik, finally joins the New Mutants team in issue #15. She has become a popular supporting character, as well as an integral part of the team.  

eBay - A few unslabbed copies. No CGC that I saw at the time of this writing. Snagging a comic run just may be a good idea for most of these key issues, if they're high grade enough.

mycomicshop - Only two copies left. Highest one for this key issue at mycomicshop is a VF. No CGC yet. 

NewKadia - More unslabbed goodness for this key issue. Five copies available here. Highest is a low NM.

  • First appearance of James Proudstar (no costume)
  • First appearance of Hellions
The brother of Thunderbird comes back as villain who blames the X-Men for his brother's death. This is the first appearance of James Proudstar, who later becomes Warpath, and he is not in costume. He also takes the name of Thunderbird in this issue.

The character of Warpath will appear in X-Men Days of Future Past. However, this comic has gained only a little bit of steam from that, meaning that this issue is selling more but not to the extent where prices are being driven up drastically.

eBayActually some CGC copies of this book. Saw one 9.8 and a 9.6. Quite a few unslabbed copies as well. 

mycomicshop - One CGC 9.8 here, the rest are unslabbed copies. This book is already past the $100 mark for 9.8s. 

ComicLink - Only one CGC 9.6 available here.

  • First appearance of Warlock
I always liked Warlock and thought he was pretty cool looking. I'd like to see someone cosplay this character.

Anyways, Warlock is a cybernetic alien from alien race, Technarchy. The Technarcy are mechanical organisms who infect living creatures with the techno-organic transmode virus, draining the lifeglow or life energy of the infected organism. Warlock is a shape-shifter.

eBay - Only a few unslabbed options available. As for CGC, I only saw one 9.8, but I think the price was a bit much for this ultra sleeper. This comic at CGC 9.8 should still be under a hundred bucks. 

mycomicshop - Two unslabbed copies. VF is the highest. 

NewKadia - Highest is a low NM. There are five copies in stock. For those who don't care about high grade comics or graded comics. You will have to scroll to the near bottom after clicking the blue NewKadia link above to find the listing.

  • Danielle Moonstar first appearance as Mirage
It looks like the superhero name of Psyche just didn't cut it for this New Mutant member. In this issue, Danielle Moonstar takes the code name Mirage, and it's the first time fans are exposed to her new name. I have to agree, much better!

eBay - If you prefer unslabbed copies, there's a few on here. If you're more into CGC, sorry, no luck as yet, but that could change.

mycomicshop - Only one VF copy here at the time of this writing. Not CGC. 

NewKadia - Highest is a low NM copy here.

  • 1st brief appearance of Legion
Legion is a complex character who makes his first brief appearance in this issue. It would be the next issue where his full first appearance is, and I'll explain a bit more about this character if you don't already know.

eBay - Nothing but unslabbed copies, but most are high grade. Super high grade for these copper keys and sleepers, however, should be what you're gunning for.

mycomicshop - Three unslabbed copies here only. Highest is a NM copy, however. 

NewKadia - Highest copy in stock is a low NM. This issue's listing is at the very bottom of the page after clicking the blue link above.

  • First full appearance of Legion
In this issue, we get the first full appearance of Legion. He is the son of Charles Xavier. Another character co-created by Chris Claremont, David Charles Haller (Legion) has multiple personality disorder. 

He has many superpowers, but each of his personalities only controls one.  Legion is an Omega-level-mutant, and has psychic powers, as well as flight, X-Ray vision, super speed, among many others.

eBay - More unslabbed goodness concerning this key issue, as for CGC? Zero, but it's probably best to snag an unslabbed copy and just submit it yourself since they're super cheap. Still more of a gamble than buying it at a local comic shop. Least there you can give a really good once over.

mycomicshop - Two unslabbed copies in stock at mycomicshop. Highest is a VF.  

NewKadia - Solid NM copy in stock at NewKadia. Second highest copy is a low NM.
