Cockrum cvr/art (4/82)The Starjammers return to the pages of the X-Men just in time to save Collosus' life, who has just been stabbed by Deathbird, by beaming the team onto their starship. After they are whisked away from danger, Cyclops, and his father, Corsair, spend some quality time bonding and reminding readers of their past history. Meanwhile, Deathbrid is in hot pursuit, along with the Brood, and once again the villainness almost does away with another member of the mutant hero team, this time it is Storm who must be saved by the Starjammers, and just in the nick of time. But will the alliance of X-Men and space pirates be able to save the Earth from the attacking Shi'ar? Another action-packed, space adventure featuring everyone's favorite mutants.
