It Just Hit Me...

Looking at the original '60s lineup of the X-Men, we have...

Beast: Super-strength.
Angel: Flight.
Cyclops: Optic beams.
Iceman: Freezing stuff.

Discounting Marvel Girl (she was the newcomer if I recall correctly), the four original X-Men add up to one complete Superman!

Go figure.

And with Marvel girl, they make a complete, but arguably more powerful, Conner Kent Superboy. They do miss the super-speed, though.

Quicksilver was in the Silver Age comics, right? Let's throw him in too for good measure.
