The Professor's broom joke at the end is exactly the kind of joke my mom would use haha

That ending, huh? "We've never all been injured before, have we?" Neither are you now, seeing how Jean is still fit enough to care for you. And isn't it nice that she's wearing a cute little nurse-uniform? This...*sigh* #casualsixtiessexism .

That out of the way, a real classic! Though Johnny Storms cameo was a bit out of the blue and...really, his whole part could have been fulfilled by Jean Grey, since he's only a distraction, but otherwise this was a great victory for the X-Men, who threw everything against the Juggernaut. One question, that could have lingered last issue, was "why doesn't Professor X just mindcrush him", and here they adress that right at the beginning...but also set up the solution for it: The helmet of the Juggernaut prevents mindattacks. So, when the Professor orders Beast to loosen the helmet, we all know, how this will end.

Two little tidbits: The professor sends out mindwaves, that accidentally get picked up by...radio antennas? Okay, fair enough. But they also get picked up by people, who hear very well? They're...still mind waves, right? You're not actually hearing them...you're thinking them! Also: At this point, Stan didn't know, what mindpowers do what, so lifting something with your mind gets called "teleportation", not telekinesis. But Jean was teleporting stuff during this run right and left...this issue is nothing special in that regard, as far as I know.
