    John Byrne and Terry Austin X-Men #113 Magneto Battle Page 17 Original Art (Marvel, 1978). Most any X-fan will recall this scene: Magneto had left the X-Men deep underground in Antarctica, unable to use their powers and in the humiliating position of being tended to like babies by a robot nanny. Monitoring things from his satellite, Magneto sees a warning light and flies down to investigate. The X-Men are lying in wait for him and they're angry, and you don't want to see Wolverine or Phoenix when they're angry! By the way, note that Magneto's thought balloon gives one of the first indications that a darker personality was starting to emerge in Jean Grey.
    John Byrne's fifth issue as penciler of the book was this thriller, "When Falls Magneto." The image area of this Bronze Age blockbuster, brilliantly inked by Austin, measures 10" x 15", and aside from trimmed upper margin corners and light overall paper aging, the art is in Excellent condition.
