Ah, but you were probably already familiar with that Iron Man image; it was used as Shellhead's corner pic from 1967-1975. Examples:
Tales of Suspense 95 (1967)

And lol--he's lost some hair, but doesn't he look like the same doctor who treated Reed Richards in 1964? ;)

Giant-Size Avengers #1 (Pt 19) Magneto, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver

Buckler's GSA #1 panel (r.) evokes the famous X-Men #4 cover.

                       X-Men #4 (1964)                                                                  

And yes, on the X-Men cover here (and on X-Men #5), Wanda the Scarlet Witch is clad in green. Back then Quicksilver was the one with a green costume, but on the cover he's miscolored in blue. 

Snappy Stan's response (in reply to reader's letter in X-Men #7 pointing out the incorrect colors on the covers): "Sometimes we change a costume's color on the cover to balance the design a bit."  So now you know!
