Classic Phoenix

When researching an article for a recent post, I ran across this image in Marvel Age #82.  It's the cover for Classic X-Men #42 by Steve Lightle, without the logo and cover elements.  The coloring is different, which is common for Marvel Age art.

The Former X-Men

This parody of X-Men #142 was printed in Spider-Woman #36 without explanation.  The art is by Jim Salicrup and inked by Terry Austin, who did the original cover for #142.

The X-Men Vs. The Avengers

I suspect that this image - found in a Spanish poster magazine, was intended to be a cover for The X-Men Vs. The Avengers issue #2.  The concept mirrors the cover used for that issue.  Perhaps it was too similar to the cover for issue #1, or the editors might have felt that the closeup of Magneto's head was a more powerful image.  Either way, I'm excited to see Marc Silvestri X-Men art of this vintage.
