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)

The X-Men make it back to the mansion after their harrowing battle with Magneto only to be commanded inside by Alex and Lorna. They learn that earth is about to be attacked by the alien Z'Nox but a plan has been made to counter the invasion--a plan formulated by none other than the "dead" Professor X. Xavier returns to his charges and explains that Changeling was masquerading as him when he was killed. The X-Men board the Z'Nox space ship and attack but it is the collective power of happy thoughts funneled through Xavier into his students that ultimately drives the aliens off.

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."

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...??"

Synopsis
Hulk escapes Project Greenskin and begins to hunt for Jarella. When he accidentally mistakes Lorna Dane and her green hair for his lost love, this puts him into conflict with her very powerful boyfriend, Havok, who handily beats him. Betty and Glenn find Bruce lying unconscious in the desert and, in a state of delirium, Bruce professes his love for Jarella to the woman he is supposed to be in love with.

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.

The original Gil Kane version of this cover had the Outcast as villain, but was rejected by the Comics Code as being too frightening. The Juggernaut's face replaced the Outcast, and is likely a Werner Roth stat with Romita touch-ups. Iceman is also redrawn/revised by Romita with possible Brodsky inks. Information provided and updated by Nick Caputo, July 2012. The original indexer credited John Tartaglione as inker.

Indexer Notes

Pencil credit is disputed. Larry Lieber per Steve Whitaker and Nick Caputo. Ed Hannigan is credited in 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 originally suggested the time frame was off but Hannigan, interviewed in 1984 by Archibald Haddock confirmed that he first arrived at Marvel in 1971 or 1972 (Amazing Heroes 45, p. 36). Hannigan recalled working regularly on Marvel's weekly British reprint comics under Tony Isabella (pp. 36–38) who separately recalled working on the weeklies from late 1972 till 1974 (tonyisabella.blogspot.com/2012/09/countdown-to-9-21-12-garage-sale_10.html). Hannigan started doing covers while working on the British weeklies (p. 38).

The original indexer credited Marie Severin.

Sources for letters credit are The Official Marvel Index to the X-Men (1994) and Official Index to the Marvel Universe; The Marvel Comics Index (Olshevsky 1981) and The Official Marvel Index to the X-Men (1987) attributed letters to Gaspar Saladino.
