Dave Cockrum began his career as an assistant inker to long-time DC artist Murphy Anderson, and soon became the regular artist on the Legion of Super Heroes in the early 70's, creating new costumes and designs and generally making it his own. Moving to Marvel, he then totally re-vamped the X-Men, co-creating Phoenix, Storm, Nightcrawler, and Colossus and several others. I was fortunate to ink the first issue of the new team over Dave's pencils in the now classic X-Men #94.

Paty: The famous "bridge scene" from X-Men - homage to Star Trek.
It was an in-joke - a giggle - but also an homage.
