It had to happen.
In their first year, the new X-Men had fought Sentinels and Juggernaut and even killer robot duplicates of the original team.
They were bound to face their most hated, hateful foe – Magneto.
But nobody expected it would be such a resounding rout for the Master of Magnetism.
In “X-Men” No. 104, “The Gentleman’s Name is Magneto,” cover date April 1977, the new recruits are attacked on Muir Island and just barely escape with their lives.
