Amazing Adult Fantasy #14 (07/01/1962)

detail1.jpgWhile the Amazing Fantasy series is best known for being the first appearance of Spider-Man, it is also has a very early story about a mutant, which contains a number of themes that would be pretty common in the X-Men series that would arrive a few years later. In Amazing Adult Fantasy #14 there is a story called “The Man in the Sky,” which features Tad Carter, who discovers that he has the ability to read minds and move objects telekinetically, which is a result of the radiation that his father had received while working as an atomic scientist. Naturally, Tad thinks these are great gifts and seeks to help out his fellow man, but is soon attacked and persecuted because of being a mutant. This story is definitely worth a read just because it’s a precursor to the X-Men. I mean it literally would fit right in as an X-Men story.

Rating: 4.0/5.0
