* DarkerAndEdgier: This story is pretty heavy stuff even by [[TheEighties '80s]] [[Creator/MarvelComics Marvel comic]] standards, and it's definitely a bit darker than the regular ''COmicBook/XMen'' title was at the time.

* ColdBloodedTorture: Magneto does... something to the Purifiers to make them tell the X-Men of Stryker's plans. Only [[AllLovingHero Nightcrawler]] provides objection to it. Also a case of BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork. Nightcrawler averts this when he takes his own prisoner (Stryker's brainwashing expert), preferring instead to use threats and his own demonic looks to intimidate the man.
** Magneto appeared to be using his powers to manipulate the Purifiers' armor to stretch them out, as if on a rack.

* DueToTheDead: The Purifiers leave Mark and Jill's bodies suspended from a swing set, each one labelled "Mutie"; a deliberate display for the schoolchildren.
