Today’s cover has us going all the way back to 1969 during the X-Men’s initial run and classic first lineup in issue #58. The art chores were performed by the legendary Neal Adams that gives the world a first glance at the character of Havok. While I always thought Havok’s costume was a striking design this is a unique way to show it off. Check out how his helmet peaks over the X-Men logo at the top ever so slightly, it’s a nice little touch to help the perspective.
Neal only ended up doing 9 covers for the X-Men in this time period, most of which could be highlighted here. For me it’s this one that’s the most eye popping and stands head and shoulders above the rest.

Ooooh, there’s gonna be a Summers brother showdown! Scott and Alex are two of my favorite characters, so I’m a sucker for scenes with the both of them together. However, these encounters often end poorly. Scott and Alex don’t always see eye to eye and, while they both have the ability to fire out destructive energy beams, these forces cancel each other out and the end result is just two naked men in a battle of wills.
