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.



This X-Men #4 is QES-certified for its flawless stapling and pure red hue. At a glorious 9.4, this near-mint copy stuns with coruscating effervescence.

Artists Information

Jack Kirby is called 'The King of Comics' for a reason, during his career that spanned six decades he gave us many of most iconic characters the medium would ever see. From his introduction of Captain America at the height of World War II it was clear he wasn't your ordinary comics artist. But it was his creative explosion at Marvel Comics in the 1960's that cemented his legacy, over a short period of time Kirby would give us The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, The Hulk, The X-Men, Thor, Ant-Man and Nick Fury just to name a few. Kirby would then go to DC and create his Fourth World, introducing Darkseid, Mister Miracle, The New Gods and a host of cosmic supporting players. Long live The King.

Werner Roth is an American comic book artist who's worked with Marvel's predecessor Atlas during the golden age of comics. Werner was also notably the artist who took over the X-men series after Jack Kirby left. Roth's other famous works include Lorna, the Jungle Girl and Superman's Girlfriend, Lois Lane.
