The Sentinels are on the warpath, trying to capture all mutants. In the course of this issue, we learn that their creator, Dr. Trask, is a mutant. He finds out himself somewhat awkwardly…
Meanwhile, the X-Men seek medical attention from one Dr. Lykos who, of course, turns out to be the mutant criminal Sauron, who hypnotizes Angel.
Sauron is introduced as a mad, torturing doctor who later turns into a human dinosaur and (spoiler alert) dies at the end. So is it really a spoiler if this comic came out 40 years ago? I don’t think so.
Anyway, it’s amazing to compare this run to Roy Thomas’ first run on X-Men, which was terrible. What a difference having one of the best artists of all time can make.
