This past Wednesday, I read X-Men #37 from 1967.I recall reading this way back in the Silver Age. The story is called "We, the Jury..." and the X-Men face the Mutant-Master. Art is by Andru and Heck and story is by Roy Thomas. (I always liked the original X-Men and I can still fondly remember reading my brother's copy of X-Men #1).I really liked the four members of the jury - four old foes of the group - the Vanisher, Unus the Untouchable, the Blob, and the Mastermind. My favorite villain of this quartet was the Blob ans I really do not know why. My favorite X-Men was the Angel - I always liked winged heroes.The story and dialogue move along nicely (Roy does a very good job capturing the team spirit without sacrificing the individuality of each teammate) but, sadly for me , the story is continued in the next issue. Looking forward to reading #38.

This is among my all-time favorite Marvel stories. I got hold of this comic when it came out and as you say it is continued. I had to wait many years to find out what happened, but I never forgot what was in this fantastic issue. The artwork by Ross Andru and inker Don Heck is magnificent, bold and powerful. The X-Men work as a team like never before. The idea that they'd jump out of a plane and survive the fall to the Earth by using their powers in concert is exquisite. This issue even has an awesome two-page spread to blow the young reader's mind. Great one indeed!
