It is 1967. The supposed 'mutant' threat has been largely forgotten, as America's youth find their ideals severely at odds with their elders and betters over the Vietnam War. In the shadow of these internal conflicts, Professor Xavier's secret academy flourishes with the help of a new vice-principal, Dr Jean Grey. The institute now has over thirty students, and the training to control their powers is going well. However, The X-Men are called into action when Anette Marie, the daughter of two British-born academics(and friends of Charles) who have joined a hippie commune, turns up alongside a mutant who calls himself 'Electro'. The two of them cause mayhem and destruction at an FBI training facility. At first, Charles believes this to be the work of Magneto's Brotherhood of Mutants, but when their base is attacked, the two factions join forces and discover that this evil mutant is none other than a mad, power-hungry electrical industrialist, Maxwell Dillon - a man who is known to Agent MacTaggert. Further investigation reveals the true nature of his ambitions. In the underground chambers of his factories, thousands upon thousands of androids stand ready for activation to begin the conquest of mankind.
