THE X-MEN #2 (1963)


Where issue #1 was full of fresh and different material, #2 has a weak villain and a mediocre story.  Vanisher.

But look at that great splash page!  Also, Angel is like a Beatle.

Anyway, the only important thing about this issue is that Professor X has a mind-link with an FBI agent—and he’s working with him.  Kinda hurts the old “outcast” rep when you’re sharing brainspace with the man, Professor.
