The Black Queen: First Appearance

Jason Wyngarde's slow but deliberate subversion of Jean Grey took a key step forward during the 18th century timeslip in Uncanny X-Men #130 with their wedding ceremony and her presentation as the Hellfire Club's Black Queen. It would be another two issues before her transformation would carry through to the X-Men's reality with her betrayal of her teammates in Uncanny X-Men #132, but this issue is certainly memorable for her unveiling as the Black Queen, a character that provides a perfect counterpoint to the Hellfire Club's White Queen Emma Frost.
