New Mutants #35 (1986)

This story takes place after X-Men #200, where Professor X gave Magneto the role of headmaster of the School for Gifted Youngsters.  This is obviously a little confusing for the kids, and we see them all wrestle with the idea of being taught and protected by the world’s first Evil Mutant.

When the kids go into town, a group of townies try to rape Dani Moonstar and Magneto goes nuclear, which convinces the team that they can trust him.

Creators: Chris Claremont and Mary Wilshire, with Bill Sienkiewicz on inks
