Indexer Notes

Inks:
There's been some dispute on this credit until Bruno Andreacchi found Roy Thomas' letter reply, crediting Neal Adams, in X-Men #60. This tips the scale towards Neal Adams.

History:
1. Original indexer suggested Neal Adams. Carl Gafford and Michael Evans supported Adams credit.
2. Steve Whitaker, Nick Caputo and Bob Ford disputed this and suggested Tom Palmer
Both inkers were credited with "?".
3. Bruno Andreacchi found Roy Thomas' statement of Adams inks in X-Men #60
(http://errors.comics.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5859)

Romita alterations on Cyclops per Nick Caputo.

Sources for letters credits are (Rosen only) The Marvel Comics Index (Olshevsky 1981); (Adams and Rosen) 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).

Indexer Notes

In the improper use of a character's abilities category: Havok uses his powers in this story to shoot a thin plasma beam at the Hulk's head and use the pain it causes to make the Hulk susceptible to suggestion and he also uses a plasma beam to lower Lorna from the top of a tall cliff to the ground.
