This story is often erroneously referred to as the first Marvel mutant story, the idea is used in earlier stories from their SF anthologies, for example "The Mutants and Me!" in Tales of Suspense (Marvel, 1959 series) #6 (November 1959) but also "Concentrate in Chaos" in Yellow Claw (Marvel, 1956 series) #2.
Tad Carter next appears in X-Men: the Hidden Years (Marvel, 1999 series) #15 (January 2001).
Includes a letter from "Carl the Cat" in Greenwich Village.
