The X-Men #9

May 21, 2010

Stan Lee // Jack Kirby
January 1965
**
A limp story despite a gallery of guest stars (all 5 Avengers, fought to a draw). Last ish teased a subterranean showdown btw. Prof. X & Lucifer. But the villain’s no demon, he’s just a generic Marvel megalomaniac whose clever plan involves hooking up a cataclysmic bomb to his beating heart.
