    Uncanny X-Men #57 Jun 1969
    First appearance of Larry Trask in ""The Sentinels Live!"
    New York City: Lorna Dane has settled into a new apartment and is still trying to adjust to the fact that she is
    a mutant with magnetic powers when she is suddenly attacked and captured by the mutant hunting Sentinels.

    While in Egypt, the X-Men attempt to calm down Cyclops' brother Alex Summers, who is horrified by the destructive force of his mutant powers,
    of which he fears that he has little control over. Alex explains that his powers where what destroyed the Egyptian temple

    that was the Living Monolith's temple, causing the Monolith to be reverted to ordinary Ahmet Abdol, a simple archeologist.
    When authorities arrive, the X-Men attempt to turn Abdol over to them. However Abdol's notoriety in the area as an
    archeologist allows Abdol to turn the tables and demand that the police arrest Alex instead for destroying
    his archeological dig. When they attempt to arrest Alex, the young mutant panics and fires a plasma blast from his hands at the soldiers.

    The X-Men then intervene while Alex flees into the desert. Furious over the situation,
    Cyclops and the other X-Men easily defeat the officers and chase after Alex in their jet-car.

    The X-Men pass a cavern, unaware that is where Alex has gone to hide and lament over his unstable powers.

    Alex's worries are short lived when a new menace appears, another Sentinel that easily captures the confused mutant.
    As the X-Men continue their search, they are alerted by Cerebro that someone had attacked Lorna Dane's apartment.
    Worried over his love interest, Iceman convinces Scott to allow him and Beast return to the United States
    and investigate Lorna's disappearance while the others continue their search for Alex in Egypt,
    unaware that the mastermind behind the Sentinel's resurrection is well aware of their splitting up and hopes to use it to his benefit.

    Arriving in New York, Iceman and Beast search Lorna's apartment for clues.
    However they are interrupted by the police who think that they are involved.
    Trying to escape, Beast almost falls from the apartment building to a nasty death on the pavement below when one
    of the officers on the scene tosses a chair at him and Bobby, knocking them both out the broken apartment window.
    However, Iceman manages to save them and the two mutants decide to escape to Scott's apartment
    and see if they can find any information about the attack on the news. They happen upon a news program where Federal Judge Robert Chalmers
    is denouncing mutants as a menace on national television. With him is Larry Trask, the son of Bolivar Trask the Sentinel's original creator.
    Trask has appeared on the news blaming mutants for his father's death.
    He would go on and explain that he was present when his father built his first Sentinel's before going off to College.
    Upon his return he was horrified to find that his father was killed during a battle between the X-Men and the Sentinels.
    Having kept a dossier on mutants over the years to prove his claims and with recent reports of the X-Men's battle with Egyptian
    authorities he proclaims to the television audience that the mutant menace will be eliminated and that the Sentinels live again.

    As Bobby and Hank watch this startling development, they are completely unaware that a Sentinel
    has tracked them down and is peering into Scott's apartment, poised to strike any moment.

    Uncanny X-Men #245 Jun 1989
    "Men!"
    In orbit above Earth, an alien coalition prepares to launch its invasion of the planet
    as an archivist discovers humanity's success against other alien foes.

    In Australia, a morose Havok observes his teammates through the town's computer system
    before getting into an argument with Storm and Wolverine over their use.
    Suspecting what worked for the women would help the men as well, Wolverine suggests a boys night out.

    In space, the invasion leader is shown the Jean Bomb, a weapon in the form of a red-headed woman with the power to destroy all bonds.
    Just then, the archivist tries to warn the leader about Earth, but is gunned down for getting too close.

    In Sydney, Wolverine leads the male X-Men into a bar,

    where Longshot proceeds to dance with all the women while the rest get drunk.

    Eventually, they're drawn outside by the sound of the invasion attacking the city.
    Most of the city's denizens seem unperturbed by the presence of the invaders,
    with the mayor even offering his seat to the leader in order to finally go on vacation.

    At the bar, Colossus gets into a brawl with a group of shock troops,
    while Longshot is accosted by a team of winged female commandos whom he eventually charms.
    Infuriated by the failures of his forces, the leader orders the detonation of the Jean Bomb
    as Wolverine bluffs his way to a win in a game of poker against the strike force's commander.

    Outside, the leader's ship departs as it prepares to drop the bomb, but Havok blasts it,

    destroying the ship and the weapon, ending the invasion.
    The X-Men return home, all the better for their night out.
    Meanwhile, in Kentucky, Tessa investigates a massacre at a Shaw Industries facility, and learns that Donald Pierce has escaped.

    NOTE: This issue is a parody of the "Invasion" storyline DC did around the same time.

    Uncanny X-Men #58 Jul 1969
    "Mission: Murder!"
    Continued from last issue...

    While watching a news story about Larry Trask, son of the late Sentinel inventor
    Bolivar Trask, Iceman and Beast are attacked by a new model Sentinel.
    As the news story plays on and Trask reveals that he has rebuilt and redesigned his fatherís robots with new weapons
    and that they can be pre-programmed with orders or operated by a remote control helmet, Bobby and Hank fight their attacker.
    While Bobby is captured by the Sentinel, Beast is forced to flee the scene when he realizes that he is outclassed against his Sentinel attacker.

    While in Egypt, Cyclops, Marvel Girl and Angel take a break from their search for Scott's brother Alex to listen to answer a radio call from Hank.
    Hank explains to the group of Larry Trask and his Sentinels and Bobby's subsequent capture,
    but has to cut the transmission short to focus on avoiding capture himself.
    Warren defies Cyclops' orders and decides to fly back to the United States on his own to help his friends against the Sentinel menace.

    While at the secret hideout of Larry Trask, Larry talks to Judge Robert Chalmers who expresses concerns about the "proof"
    Larry has provided that all mutants are a menace and to tell him that the public is not entirely sold on the idea.
    Larry agrees to let the press talk to the captured X-Man once he is rendered harmless.
    When Bobby arrives at the Sentinel base, Larry has him treated to a chemical steam bath that nullifies his ice powers for four hours.
    When Bobby attempts to attack Trask, a Sentinel stops him and Larry reveals that a hidden video camera had recorded the attempted attack
    which he intends to use as proof of the "mutant menace" that he is trying to sell and vows to get revenge on the X-Men for his fatherís death.

    Taken to a holding cell, Iceman finds both Lorna and Alex there. He learns from Alex that Trask had
    designed him a special suit to control and regulate his powers and given him the codename Havok.

    Alex then tells Bobby that he was given all this in return for making a deal with Trask
    so that Lorna would be left alone. However, Bobby brands Alex a coward before hearing this,

    and as he's being told a Sentinel enters the room and grabs Lorna. Realizing that Trask's
    word was meaningless he unleashes a powerful plasma blast that destroys the Sentinel.

    Entering the room with another Sentinel, Larry then uses a device that nullifies Alex's powers.
    This horrifies Alex as this will reawaken the mutant abilities of Professor Abdol allowing him to transform into the Living Monolith once more.

    While in Egypt Ahmet Abdol is meeting with government officials about his altercation with the X-Men earlier when he suddenly feels his powers
    returning to him. However before he can completely transform into the Living Monolith once more, two Sentinels arrive on the scene and douse
    Abdol with a special adhesive that blocks him from the cosmic rays that feed his power, neutralizing his threat and allowing for an easy capture.

    Trask sends out an army of Sentinels to capture all of the remaining mutants in the world and a pair captures Angel with ease.
    This capture is watched through the horrified eyes of Scott and Jean who witness this
    capture while looking out the window of the airplane they are using to fly back to the States.
    While at a secret hide out, Mesmero and Magneto are attacked by another Sentinel.
    When Magneto attempts to stop the robot, it blasts him revealing that the being that Mesmero has been
    working for all these months was not the real Magneto, but a robot, and he is easily captured by the Sentinels.
    With only a few mutants still free, Larry considers his task a success and welcomes
    the arrival of Judge Chalmers who Larry proudly shows his work too.
    When Chalmers realizes that the captured mutants are being kept in suspended animation
    he expresses his displeasure that the mutants are not detained in a more humane way.
    This comment infuriates Larry who tells the judge that if he cannot count on his support he will deal with the mutant menace alone.
    However, Chalmers manages to calm down the emotional Trask.
    Larry then turns his attention to the members of the X-Men who are still not yet captured,
    who are planning on locating the kidnapped mutants with a mini Cerebro unit.
    As Trask watches this, he swears that he will capture these mutants.
    He swears on the medallion that he is wearing and reflects that it was a gift from his father shortly
    after the death of his mother, at that time Bolivar had asked his son to swear to never take it off.

    Larry's recollection is cut short when suddenly his base is attacked by the Banshee who attempts to destroy the Sentinels with his sonic screams,
    however, Trask had built Sentinels specifically to deal with him and they knock out the sonic-screaming mutant with a sonic blast counter attack.
    Furious at this attack, Larry orders the Sentinels to hunt down the remaining mutants and destroy them.
    Not wanting to be party to murder, Chalmers attempts to stop Larry, and is forced to strike the boy.
    The force of the blow knocks the medallion off of Larry, and upon that
    happening the Sentinels detect the presence of another mutant, Larry himself.

    A nearby Sentinel grabs Larry and informs him that because he is a mutant his command over them is null and void,
    and that despite this they are going to carry out his last command; destroy all mutants.

    Miss the days when Havok went white hot using his powers. I think only Adams, Cockrum and Byrne ever did that effect justice.

    Back then, for the most part, artists and writers were very stable with the characters. I liked that feel and the continuity that does not seem existent today.

    Havok, with his cosmic energy blasts, should really be a very powerful hero, but they never seemed to play up to that potential. For instance, when he is in space, he should always look/glow white, absorbing way more cosmic energy than from when he is on Earth. Maybe when he expels that energy (in space), his black outfit should be visible. Inverse of his Earthly look.

    Looks like Alex is on the Summers Grey book with Logan, at least at the beginning...so he's not dead long and now maybe Corsair will remember that Alex exists...

    Uncanny X-Men #59 Aug 1969
    "Do or Die, Baby!"
    Continued from last issue...

    Cyclops, Beast and Marvel Girl are using a mini Cerebro unit to track down all of
    the mutants that have recently been captured by Larry Trask's Sentinels.
    However, their jet-car is blasted out of the sky causing the three X-Men to fall to their doom,
    but they are rescued at the last minute by MG's telekinetic powers.
    While in the secret hideout of the Sentinels, it has been revealed that Larry Trask, ironically, is a mutant himself,
    a revelation that is learned when the medallion given to him from his father was accidentally removed
    and turns out to have nullified and shielded his mutant powers from the Sentinels scanners.
    This is confirmed by Judge Chalmers who knew the truth all along and explains that Larry's father,
    the late Bolivar Trask, created the medallion after Larry's mutation precognition powers foretold his motherís death.
    With the Sentinels no longer following his orders now that he has been outed as a mutant,
    the Sentinels carry out Larry's last command as a "human", to capture all the remaining mutants and destroy them.

    In rapid succession, the Sentinels seek out and attempt to capture the remaining mutants left in the world.
    They find opposition when trying to capture Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and Toad; however easily manage to capture Mastermind, Blob and Unus.
    While Judge Chalmers begins to consider what to do about this situation, not wishing to be party to
    the genocide of all known mutants, the Sentinels detect a concentration of mutant energy signatures.

    This turns out to be Cyclops, Marvel Girl and the Beast who are now scaling the mountain which hides the Sentinel base.
    They are opposed by Sentinels which they easily defeat and manage to break into the Sentinel base.

    Inside, they hide as a Sentinel prisoner craft arrives with the captured Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and Toad.
    Realizing that the Sentinels are conditioned to deal with any given mutants threats by identifying who they are,
    the three X-Men trade costumes with the former Brotherhood of Evil Mutants members, Cyclops taking Quicksilver's costume,
    Marvel Girl taking Scarlet Witch's and the Beast wearing Toad's. When the Sentinels that captured the three other mutants
    attempt to take them to the holding chambers they are caught off guard. Confused by the unique costumes
    and not prepared to deal with different powers, the Sentinels fall easily to Cyclops, Marvel Girl and Beast's counter attack on the Sentinels.

    As this is happening, Judge Chalmers awakens Larry Trask from his suspended animation.
    Larry has a vision of Havok getting injured in the coming battle. When Chalmers asks what he can do to stop the Sentinels,
    he traces Larry's glance at the device he used to neutralize Havok's powers earlier. However Chalmers
    misinterprets Larry's attempts to tell him what the gun is for as an order to kill Havok, which Chalmers refuses to do.

    Cyclops and the others fight their way into the main chamber just as the Judge
    realizes what the gun is really for and uses it to reactivate Havok's powers.

    Realizing what Chalmers has done, the Sentinel in the room blasts him before Cyclops can attempt to destroy it.
    Cyclops then blasts open the cyro-tube that is keeping Alex in suspended animation.

    Now free, Havok turns his powerful cosmic energy blasts on the Sentinel.

    As the Sentinels begin to administer the Judge first aid as part of their programming to protect humans,
    Chalmers tells Cyclops that the only way to beat the Sentinels is with logic. Cyclops then suggests to the Sentinels
    that it would be easier to eliminate the source that causes the creation of mutants to make their jobs easier.
    As Cyclops is telling them this, Havok, still believing that he is a menace, attempts to commit suicide.
    Realizing what Alex is going to do, Scott chases after him.

    Meanwhile, the Sentinels ponders Cyclops' suggestion and realize that it's the very sun that is the cause
    of mutants on Earth and with this logic considered the entire Sentinel army blasts off into space to try
    and destroy the Sun, a mission that is destined to end in failure and the Sentinelís destruction.

    In the aftermath of the Sentinels exodus, Cyclops and the others find Alex buried in a pile of rubble begging for help.
    Realizing that his brother will need medical attention and psychiatric help in coming to
    terms with his mutant nature, he decides to call one of the Professorís old colleagues.
    Shortly afterward, a call is made to Dr. Karl Lykos who agrees to see Alex.
    As he is making arrangements with Scott, one of his patients suddenly slumps into unconsciousness.
