“If Iceman Should Fail..!”
Story by Stan Lee, Pencils by Jay Gavin, Inked by Dick Ayers, Lettered by Artie Simek.

Kirby Gone But Not Forgotten!

In Which We Learn The Only Brotherhood Magneto Should Be Concerned With Is The International Brotherhood of The Teamsters, That Some May Confuse Angels With Eggies, And That One Should Never Bring an Ultraviolet Inspection Light Into Xavier’s Guest Room Unless They Are Prepared For a Sight They Can Not Ever Unsee!

Secret Guest Star! Things Get Thorny!


One misplaced olive toss and there was to be no peace with the Master of Magnetism.

I think the AM/PM mini-market uses the same process to produce more mini-corn dogs.

Ah, the heady days before the medical malpractice lawsuit! When the words “experimental”, “unproven”, and “reckless” were just more useless words from that medical dictionary propping up the wobbly end table in the lounge.

Toad would have visited the Halls of Medicine and Advanced Technology, utilizing this once in a lifetime opportunity to gain undreamt knowledge from the far corners of the universe for the betterment of all mutantkind! But hey, what does he know? He’s just a flunky.

I am going to assume that Stan Lee’s childhood “Birds and the Bees” talk went horribly awry.

If the guest room you are staying at has tiny rectangular window connecting it to the next room… well… you are probably going to get raped. Simple as that.

The Stranger maintains a luxuriously leonine head of hair, even in the cold vacuum of space. There can be no doubt his is a highly advanced race.

Xavier can’t believe it! Magneto managed to create the perfect being, somehow combining the moxie of Telly Savalas, the smokey eroticism of Yul Brynner, and the raw sexuality of a Patrick Stewart. Where, o where could Magneto have gathered the genetic material to make such a perfect being? Damn that is some Grade A Beef!

Right, Jean? Hmmm? Jean?

I’ll be in the Guest Room if anyone needs me.
