X-men v1 #50, 1968 - An electronic stimulator awakens Lorna Dane's latent powers, transforming her into Polaris Jim Steranko's pencils breathe new life into the series with his daring page compositions. Some figures are mildly distorted and misproportioned, but largely offset by his widely varying angles. The two-page spread at the start and a later splash page are but two of the many exceptional scenes. Steranko's cover is even better: a stunning portrayal of Polaris crackling with energy as the X-men cower beneath her. Other artists in this issue include Arnold Roth and John Verpoorten. This is number 2 of 3 X-men issues with Steranko art and/or covers.
