6. “X-Men” No. 42 (1968)  Professor X dies in conflict with Grotesk the Sub-Human but saves the world in this story from writer Roy Thomas and artist Don Heck. This first major death in the mutant franchise lasted about two years, until No. 65, when a story from writer Dennis O’Neil and artist Neal Adams has Cyclops’ brother Havok (Alex Summers) reveal a still-living Charles Xavier. The professor says he was secreted away planning a counter to an alien invasion, and his collaborator Changeling, who’d taken his form, was the one who died. (Where was he hiding? Oh, in a subbasement of the mansion.) (John Buscema / Marvel)
