Indexer Notes

Disputed inker credit--Tom Palmer per Carl Gafford and Michael Evans; Neal Adams per the original indexer. Inks are attributed to Adams in The Marvel Comics Index (Olshevsky 1981), The Official Marvel Index to the X-Men (Olshevsky 1987), The Official Marvel Index to the X-Men (Ward 1994), and Official Index to the Marvel Universe (Vandal et al. 2009). Nick Caputo also suspects Adams is the inker and possible colorist.

Sources for letters credit are The Marvel Comics Index, The Official Marvel Index to the X-Men (1987), and The Official Marvel Index to the X-Men (1994).
