I really love the writing of Stan Lee. I really do. As far as I'm concerned, the guy is THE father of modern comic books. His work still resonates almost 50 years after it was first published. With that said though, some of his work is laugh out loud funny. Take these scans for example. Here we have Magneto, the deadliest threat the X-Men have ever known, literally hiding right under their noses. Guys, he's crouching right behind that tank of rocket fuel sitting right near you!!!
So, Magneto has the jump on the fledgling X-Men, since he is obviously a master of hiding in plain sight. How does he decide to kill them? Drop a building on their heads? Nah, too easy. Impale them with metal shrapnel? No, too messy. No, Magneto decides to stand up shouting threats and pushing the tank of rocket fuel at the X-Men... The guy has all of these awesome powers and the best he can come up with is PUSHING a tank of rocket fuel at the X-Men??? Come on Mags, I expect much better than that!
