THE UNCANNY X-MEN #5 (1964)


Wherein we learn that Magneto and his “first followers,” i.e., the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, are living on Asteroid M.

We also meet Jean Grey’s parents.  They’re big fans of Professor X, but last issue he was put into a coma, so he’s not able to meet with them.

The X-Men go to Asteroid M and blow it up, get home, and it turns out Professor X was faking his coma all along.

It was their “final exam.”

Professor X really is a jerk.

Creators: Lee/Kirby

First appearances: Jean Grey’s parents and Asteroid M

Grade: C+.  It would have been a B-, but that ending is a superlame copout.
