X-men v1 #60, 1969 - Seeking medical help, the X-men track down Dr. Lykos, an old colleague of Professor X. Unknown to them is the fact that he can transform himself into the pteranadon-like Sauron. Neal Adams continues his exceptional run on this title. In addition to his rendition of a frenetic Danger Room (see interior page below), a double page spread displays a panorama of Antarctic cliffs, the origin of Sauron's power. Adams' widely varying layouts and superbly crafted drawings are further polished by Tom Palmer's smoothly applied inks. On another note, Banshee, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch all make brief cameo appearances. This story was later reprinted in X-men Classics #2. This is number 5 of 9 X-men issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or X-men issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist or Top 10 Adams comics.
