Magneto is back, but this time he is not alone, he has brought along some support to take on those pesky X-Men, his answer to the talented teens is the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, comprised of Toad, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and Mastermind, Magneto is ready to take on the nascent hero team in this, his second ever appearance. Boasting a classic Jack Kirby cover, this is one of the most important books from the early days of the X-Men. Not only does it place the power mad Magneto front and center, it also introduces a couple of characters that would go on to mega-stardom in the Marvel Universe, in comics and on film, brother and sister team Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, who were featured not only in the MCU, but also in Fox's X-Men franchise.
Presenting a strong color palette, and incredibly clean whites, this is an impressive copy of X-Men #4. Although there is the slightest amount of chipping on this cover it is barely noticeable. The Scarlet Witch's green (?) outfit contrasts wonderfully with the yellow in the miniature X-Men's costumes and the red and purple motif in the terrifying Magneto's suit, cowl and cloak. This is one of the nicer examples of this book we have seen in our offices recently, surely a nice pickup for a X-fan trying to complete a run of early issues.
