More Ideas Than Time
I remember being confused by the pinfeathers thing as a kid. Everyone is so upset by it but no one ever says what it would mean for them to be cut. Or do they?
I think Storm says something like “without them, he cannot fly!” Which of course would refer to the primary and secondary flight feathers (the primaries are also called pinions), rather than pinfeathers, which have no direct connection to flight ability.I remember being confused by the pinfeathers thing as a kid.

He'd been doing a lot of the inking of his own work so far, so he seamlessly moves into the role of regular inker for the title with this issue. The art really doesn't look much different here than previously, and far superior to how Sal Buscema's work has looked to me up to this point, so this arrangement seems promising."This was my first regular penciling assignment, and I wasn't prepared to knock out the pages as fast as I had to. That's what led me to deciding to leave penciling it after the third issue. I wasn't happy with the quality of my work. I needed more time to do good work."
I think at some point it was established that killing para-demons doesn't count as killing people. Don't known if this had already happened, or Claremont did not know (or did not like the idea).Slade doing the "No really, Ororo didn't crush a bunch of para-demons to death, the rocks are just conveniently trapping them" is such a transparent cover by Claremont to make sure that Ororo remains pure and innocent. Which, I get, as we don't want to have the DARK ORORO SAGA, but man, is it awkward.
