Although the issue is only in black, white and red it seems like Wolverine is wearing his brown X-Men costume which would place this adventure somewhere after X-Men I#139 (1980).This profile was completed 3/20/2019, but its publication was delayed as it was intended for the Appendix 20th anniversary 's celebratory event.
