Whether you're an initiated X-fan or a new-comer to Marvel's mighty Mutants or simply a fan of fabulous, quirky comics with an indie feel, X-Men: Grand Design cannot be missed.
I'm not sure how much of this Silver Age material is stuff Piskor reworked to streamline it and how much is stuff I've plain forgot. It's been a couple years since I read early X-Men, and to be honest it's mostly worth forgetting. The best thing in the whole Silver Age is the time Magneto uses his magnetic personality to hypnotize Angel's parents.
Magnets really can do anything.
