The Medusa Effect...and the Original X-Factor!

Let's start the new year 2014 off with--yes, more Medusa! Over the years many have noted the similarity between Medusa's 1969 Spidey-bashing emerald ensemble and the early X-Factor costumes.

And not only did Jean Grey and her fashionable Factor cohorts "borrow" Medusa's costume...

...but later on Jean also swiped Medusa's fabulous follicles! Or is Ms. Grey's massive hair growth a by-product of that freaking Phoenix Force?
