The X-Men #36-39 (1967)

Roy Thomas finally delivers the end of the “Factor Three” storyline, and frankly, it never gets worth reading.  Add to that the fact that now Don Heck and Ross Andru are the artists on the series, and you’ll understand how a book that started with so much potential ended up being pure shit.

And at the end of #39, the team gets new costumes.  Of course, they’re designed by Jean Grey because only girls know fashion.

But check out the insult to Beast, at right…Covered with fur?  Hmmmm.
