This image, from the last page of #17, is probably my favorite Magneto picture ever. I love his monstrous size, the great use of his eyes…It’s perfect.
We also saw him manifest “magnetic hypnosis” powers in issue #17, a skill he doesn’t appear to ever have again.
Storywise, all the X-Men except Iceman are floating into the atmosphere, trapped in a balloon. Yes, Iceman basically holds off the guy who can singlehandedly take on the entire team—and more.
