DESCRIPTION
glossy
origin and 1st app. El Tigre
The heavy in this issue is El Tigre, an explorer who is imbued with super powers through his possession of shards from an ancient pendant. When he travels to New York to retrieve the remainder of the sacred jewelry he intercepted by the X-Men, who sensed his presence thanks to the newly reconstructed Cerebro unit and Professor X's powers. After taking Beast, Iceman, and Angel out of action, Cyclops is left to confront El Tigre, who breaks into a museum and grabs the remainder of his pendant, the issue ends as the baddie transforms into the Mayan god Kukulcán. Pencils by Werner Roth and inks by Dick Ayers.


Artists Information

Jack Kirby is called 'The King of Comics' for a reason, during his career that spanned six decades he gave us many of most iconic characters the medium would ever see. From his introduction of Captain America at the height of World War II it was clear he wasn't your ordinary comics artist. But it was his creative explosion at Marvel Comics in the 1960's that cemented his legacy, over a short period of time Kirby would give us The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, The Hulk, The X-Men, Thor, Ant-Man and Nick Fury just to name a few. Kirby would then go to DC and create his Fourth World, introducing Darkseid, Mister Miracle, The New Gods and a host of cosmic supporting players. Long live The King.

Werner Roth is an American comic book artist who's worked with Marvel's predecessor Atlas during the golden age of comics. Werner was also notably the artist who took over the X-men series after Jack Kirby left. Roth's other famous works include Lorna, the Jungle Girl and Superman's Girlfriend, Lois Lane.
