The X-Men #19

Stan Lee // Werner Roth
April 1966
**
This one-off hangs entirely upon a villain who mimics the X-Men’s superpowers. The result makes for a good visual (esp. his kooky cubist visor) but a pedestrian plot that never gains energy. Roth, the new regular penciller, lacks a discernible personality & doesn’t diverge from the path Kirby’s laid.
