Let’s dig a few pages from X-Men #7 by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Here they introduced Cerebro, a mainstay of the X-mythos ever since. But while Cyclops and the Professor are having guy time with their geeky gadgets, Beast and Iceman are “enjoying a taste of the bohemian side of New York.” In just a few panels they become the stars of the beatnik bopper parade, and Hank gets his feet painted. Crazy, man, crazy!

Funnily enough, Xavier calls it Cyberno in that same issue, just a few panels after he introduces it as Cerebro. A back-up story in X-Men #40 had Cyberno as a prototype for Cerebro.

Good catch, Xpert! Lee, Kirby, Ditko and the gang cranked stories out so quickly and furiously in the 1960s that proofreading sometimes got tossed to the side – as in the classic “Peter Palmer” mistakes. We didn’t know about the Cyberno story in #40 so thank you!
