Synopsis
With Professor X in a coma after warding off the Z'Nox, the X-Men try to reach him and he mentally tells them one word, "Hulk." The X-Men track down the jade giant and Jean's mental powers cause him to revert to Bruce Banner. Banner tells them that he has a machine that may save Xavier but Major Talbot shows up and causes him to transform to the Hulk again. The X-Men follow him into the desert and battle him at the site of an old lab where they are able to procure the piece of machinery that brings Professor X out of his coma. "And they fought happily ever after...??"

Indexer Notes

Letters from Guy Lillian III, David Conzo, Dave Ballman, Allan G. Latawill, and Kurt Erichsen; includes Know Ye These, the Hallowed Ranks of Marveldom. Editorial note explains that the X-Men is being discontinued because "sales didn't warrant continuing the title." While sales figures on the last new issues rose the X-Men was revived nine months later, but only as a reprint title. It ran continuously until new stories and art began with #94 (August 1975).
