Superior Silver: Splash Pages

This just might be the single greatest splash page of the Silver Age of comics from X-Men #7 (September 1964). The X-Men reflected in the lens of the camera, the flash featuring Magneto, and the smiles of the four X-Men, and the rather grim expression of Cylcops, all add up to making this page just about perfect. Of course, there is one rather obvious flaw, but aside from that, it's King Kirby at his finest.
