X-Men #36-39 (1967)

Roy Thomas finally delivers the end of the “Factor Three” storyline, and frankly, it never gets worth reading.  Along the way are some very lame villains. A dude named Mekano who we’ll never see again. Vanisher. “Mutant Master” (who we also never see again). Changeling.

We do get a bubble prison, though. That’s always nice.

Add that now Don Heck and Ross Andru are the artists on the series, and you’ll understand how a book that started with so much potential ended up being pure shit.

And at the end of #39, the team gets new costumes.  Of course, they’re designed by Jean Grey because only girls know fashion.

But check out the insult to Beast…Covered with fur?  Hmmmm.
