    Don Heck, Werner Roth, and John Tartaglione X-Men #52 Page 4 Original Art (Marvel, 1969). In the world of the X-Men, nothing is ever quite what it seems. From the Arnold Drake classic, "Twilight of the Mutants," after Scott Summers, disguised as Eric the Red, defeats Mesmero and pursues Magneto (in reality, a Magneto robot) -- only Lorna Dane aka Polaris, who has been tricked into believing she's Magneto's daughter, stands in his path. The disguise of Eric the Red was assumed by Cyclops in X-Men #51. Cyclops pretended to be a super-villain in order to infiltrate Mesmero's evil mutant group -- (led by a robot pretending to be Magneto) -- who had captured the rest of the X-Men. Cyclops' Eric the Red costume had a special mask and gloves that redirected his optic blasts so that they were fired from his hands. The image area of this Marvel masterwork of misdirection, laid out by Don Heck, penciled by Werner Roth, and based on Jim Steranko's landmark visuals from the previous three issues, measures 10" x 15". The art is in Excellent condition.
