Stan Lee, Master of Suspense 0

The creators of the X-Men book seem to be doing some readers' request lately. Readers complain the Brotherhood is overused? So long Brotherhood. This issue seems to be an answer to the request of a specific fan, Barbara Hannah. Back in issue #10, her letter was requesting an origin story for Professor X. Well this is it.   The previous issue ended with Cerebro locating a new threat starting an alarm call. Which startled Xavier and Scott. This issue follows directly from that scene. Hank, Jean, R...

First of all, Jack Kirby's attentions were probably elsewhere during the creation of this issue. He just provides layouts which Alex Toth finished and Vince Coletta inked. But Kirby's layouts must have been very preliminary indeed, and Toth doesn't really build much on them, r...
