We continue our discussion about Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's X-men with issue 07, featuring the return of the Blob and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Alex and I don't have much to say about this issue as we both agree that stagnation is setting in for this series. While the art and storytelling are technically well done, characters and stories are starting to feel stale. We do a brief comparison to the first seven issues of Fantastic Four and Spider-man to compare the exciting and progressive nature of those books to the X-men's general repetitiveness.
