The Professor gets top billing on this title, possibly just to differentiate it from the other eleven books in the X-checklist this month. From 1996, Professor X and the X-Men #7, "Supreme Notions" Written by Fred Schiller, pencils by Nick Gnazzo, inks by Ian Akin.
This book was another of Marvel's 99-cent titles of the time, and was retelling classic Lee/Kirby X-Men stories with more modern art and storytelling. Great idea, except it was 90's art and storytelling. (I'm kidding. A little.) This issue retold 1964's X-Men #6, and featured the Sub-Mariner, who had formed a brief alliance with Magneto. They got along for approximately no pages this issue...
Bonus two-page Magneto character profile spread from Jan Duursema: Professor X's A-V set-up is off the hook, yo.
