Synopsis for "Beware of the Blob!"Edit

Professor Xavier interrupts the X-Men's latest training session to inform them that he has mentally detected a new mutant nearby. The X-Men find the mutant known as the Blob working at a carnival. They invite the Blob into the school so that Professor Xavier can test his powers. Afterwards Professor Xavier invites the Blob to join the X-Men, but he refuses. In an attempt to maintain the X-Men's secret identities, Professor Xavier tries to mind-wipe the Blob, but he is able to escape.

Later the Blob returns with the other carnival people and begin to attack the school. The X-Men are able to hold off the carnival people long enough for Professor Xavier to use a thought intensifier to erase the carnival people's memories.

The Professor has an inappropriate thought about Jean

  • This story introduces the perennial X-Men villain, the Blob.
  • This is the first comic Cyclops's name Scott is given. Previously he was referred to as 'Slim'.
  • The issue shows that Xavier has some affections for Jean beyond that of student-teacher. While the students try to win the attention of Jean, the professor thinks of her as "the one he loves." This moment is completely forgotten about until revisited in X-Men Vol 2 #53 as part of the Onslaught storyline.
  • In one panel, the Blob is accidentally drawn bald.
