What terror lurks outside of X-Mansion… and why in the world did Cerebro pick up on it?!

It’s the first appearance of Professor X’s stepbrother, the Juggernaut… and the first time we find out (to my knowledge) that the Xavier’s first name is Charles!  It’s a fun one… that, reading as an adult… almost makes me sympathize for the villain!

Plus: A pretty hilarious Silver-Age Letters Page, everything Marvel for (cover-date) July, 1965 – and a plea from your humble host for dissenting opinions to be shared on the show… rather than on review aggregates that can actually HURT the show!
