"Was there an explanation of how Arcade knew about the Mansion? A lot of X-foes knew about it - Magneto, the Hellfire Club, Arcade. Magneto has known since #17-#18, and retcons established he'd always known about Xavier. Did the Hellfire Club…"
"The sequences involving the interpretation of the tape in The Conversation were modelled after similar scenes involving photographs in a Michelangelo Antonini film, Blowup (1966). When I saw the film as a young adult I found them hypnotic, but the…"
