Ok, how about this for an idea. We take it in turns to post a favourite (British spelling) comic cover every day. This went really well on the comic fan website that I used to frequent. What we tried to do was find a theme or subject and follow that, until we all got bored with that theme. I'd like to propose a theme of letters of the alphabet. So, for the remainder of October (only 5 days) and all of November, we post comic cover pictures associated with the letter "A". Then in December, we post covers pertaining to the letter "B". The association to the letter can be as tenuous as you want it to be. For example I could post a cover from "Adventure Comics" or "Amazing Spider Man". However Spider Man covers can also be posted when we're on the letter "S". Adventure Comic covers could also be posted when we're on the letter "L" if they depict the Legion of Super Heroes. So, no real hard, fast rules - in fact the cleverer the interpretation of the letter, the better, as far as I'm concerned.
And it's not written in stone that we have to post a cover every day. There may be some days when no cover gets posted. There's nothing wrong with this, it just demonstrates that we all have lives to lead.
If everyone's in agreement I'd like to kick this off with one of my favourite Action Comic covers, from January 1967. Curt Swan really excelled himself here.
Something about Dr. Double X's costume makes me think the biggest danger he'd pose to Batman would be that old Bruce might bust a gut laughing at that extremely silly looking costume. And the name isn't quite the sort to fill a Dark Knight with fear. Of course, Dr. Triple X made a killing in the porno biz and retired on a remote island, but deep in his heart he never got over the shame of being ignored in Silver Age comics.

And, of course, the Comics Code prevented Doctor Triple X from ever becoming a major player in the Silver Age.

Marvel Team Up #118: Spider-Man and Professor X!
Going from memory, the only X-Men who individually teamed with Spidey prior to this was the Beast (three times altogether but he was an Avenger then in #38, #90 and #124), Nightcrawler (#89) and in the previous issue (#117) Wolverine. Afterwards it was just Kitty Pryde and Cannonball.
