  • Red Skull’s Island Stronghold (Destroyed)



The Red Skull now has in his possession the Cosmic Cube, a device created by AIM that would allow it’s user to shape reality to their whims, and the only person to stop the Skull from using it is his arch nemesis Captain America.

Cap’s first attack is easily defended, and the Skull tells Cap how after he destroys his old foe he will use the cube to make the entire human race his slave and then root out the weak in order to create an army of the strongest people on the planet to launch war against the rest of the universe.

The Skull then creates a humanoid out of the islands very soil and sets it to attack Captain America until he grows tired and sends the creature into limbo. When he is about to do the same thing to Captain America himself, Cap tricks the Skull into sparing him by convincing him that the greatest victory would have his greatest foe, humbled and subservient to nobody but the Skull.

Finding this idea appealing, the Skull accepts and then creates himself a suit of knightly armor to match his perceived destiny to be king of the world. When “knighting” Captain America, Cap uses it as the perfect opportunity to catch the Skull off guard and knock the cube out of his grasp. During their fight to get the cube back the Skull uses it to try and destroy Cap by tearing the island apart. However in the scuffle Cap manages to knock the cube out of Skull’s hand making it lost at sea and the Skull falls in right after it, the weight of his armor dragging him to the ocean floor. Cap survives the experience, presuming that the Skull had died, as for the cube, it is lost at the bottom of the sea.

X-Men Vol 1 5

Trapped: One X-Man”  / INTRAPPOLATO UN X-MAN !  (2a parte)

Featured Characters:






Continued from last issue…

Magneto attempts to brainwash Angel.

The X-Men try to decide what to do with the Toad when he suddenly falls into a trance. The Toad’s only thoughts are that he has to return to Magneto. He pulls out a communicator and summons a capsule for the sky. The X-Men decide to go with the Toad to wherever he is heading in order to find Angel. The X-Men appear on Asteroid M to the Brotherhood’s surprise. Magneto heads over to activate a switch designed to kill the X-Men with the push of a button, but the console is sabotaged by the Scarlet Witch because she cannot tolerate murder. Magneto and the two siblings argue over their loyalties giving the X-Men enough time to free the Angel and attack.

The fighting causes some extensive damage to the space station which causes it to start to fall apart. Cyclops is trapped in a section of the asteroid that breaks off right away. Iceman has to create an ice tunnel so that Angel can go and rescue Cyclops. Before the asteroid is fully destroyed, the X-Men use the capsule to return to Earth. When the X-Men return to the mansion they try to tell Professor Xavier what had occurred. Professor Xavier informs them that he was able to follow everything, because he did not lose his telepathy. Since the X-Men performed this solo mission perfectly, they passed their final exams and the narrator informs that their training is over. 

  • Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch show resistance, albeit slight, to Magneto’s way of thinking. This is also evident in X-Men #4 (in Italy in CAPC # 6). However, the Scarlet Witch feels she owes her life to Magneto and Quicksilver will not abandon her, creating an seemingly uneasy submission on their part towards Magneto’s wishes.
  • Toad also shows sympathy towards the X-Men after Magneto shoves Cyclops into space, crying out to Magneto “You’re making a mistake” (pg. 23)

  • This battle marks the end of the X-Men’s training as students at the school.
  • Cyclops almost floats away into space in this issue. Luckily everyone is able to hold their breath in space while both talking and Iceman builds an ice bridge around them on Asteroid M.
  • This issue marks the first time Xavier reveals he intentionally decieved the X-Men.
X-Men Vol 1 6

Sub-Mariner Joins the Evil Mutants!” / SUB-MARINER SI UNISCE AI MUTANTI MALVAGI ! (1a parte)

Featured Characters:


Races and Species:




Professor Xavier reads a newspaper article about the Sub-Mariner. He begins to wonder whether or not the Sub-Mariner is a mutant. Meanwhile Magneto and his Brotherhood of Evil Mutants are at their new headquarters on an island somewhere in the ocean pondering the same thing. Magneto decides to try and recruit the Sub-Mariner by projecting his astral form under the ocean. Professor Xavier does the same thing from the mansion, but decides to hide his astral form when he senses Magneto’s astral form nearby.

Magneto finds Namor’s underwater kingdom, but decides not to approach the Sub-Mariner following an outburst that he witnesses. Instead Magneto approaches one of the other Atlanteans and makes a deal with him. In exchange for delivering a message from him, Magneto claims that the Atlantean can become the new ruler of Atlantis if the Sub-Mariner joins the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.

Continued to next issue…

  • Namor is established to be a mutant. He was already mentioned as “possibly the first known mutant” in Fantastic Four Annual #1 (in Italy in F4C #15). At this point in time, Namor was mainly appearing as a recurring character in the Fantastic Four series.
  • This is the first mention of a “cook” for the X-Men, but one has yet to be revealed.
  • Iceman uses his ice powers to make pie a la mode in this issue. Unfortunately, the editors ignored the need for cream when making ice cream and Bobby would have really only eaten ice.
  • Magneto apparently shows telepathic powers in this issue as he sends forth a mental image as an ambassador to Prince Namor. This is the same mental power Professor X uses to look for Namor. It is even stated that Magneto’s mind is second in the world to Professor X’s capability.
