head shotHistory:  (Uncanny X-Men#176) - When Henry Peter Gyrich was called to Washington, D. C. by Judge Richard Petrie, Gyrich arrived in the middle of a speech given by Frank Lowell, of the C.I.A. Lowell's speech revolved around how the city of Varykino in Siberia had been destroyed by Magneto months ago and how Magneto could do the same to any city on Earth. After Gyrich took his seat, Lowell continued his speech, explaining that Magneto had issued a world-wide ultimatum demanding that the world disarm its nuclear weaponry. Lowell continued, explaining that the Soviets had sent a missile strike against Magneto in retaliation for Magneto's demands. He went further to explain how Magneto had decided to make Varykino an example of what would happen should the world attack him again. Lowell then announced that the C.I.A.'s computers predicted a strong possibility of success should Magneto or any other superhuman attempt to conquer the Earth. In the conclusion of his speech, Lowell introduced the others present to Dr. Valerie Cooper. He continued to stand as Val Cooper proceeded to give her speech about similar concerns with the superhuman population.
