Synopsis: The primary story in Amazing Adventures #5 reprints part one of the X-Men’s first encounter with the Blob from X-Men #3 (January 1964).  After a Danger Room training session, Professor Xavier detects a new mutant in the vicinity and dispatches the team to locate him. The X-Men locate the mutant in question at a carnival where the Blob works as a sideshow attraction. After inviting Blob back to the X-Mansion for testing, they invite the new mutant to join the team, but he rejects their offer and fights his way out of their secret headquarters before Professor X can modify his memory.  The backup story in this reprint concludes the origin of Cyclops from X-Men #42 (March 1968).
