Format: Paperback
I am both amazed and incredibly pleased to have seven volumes of Chris Claremont's X-Men Essentialized already (plus two of the Silver Age X-Men, but I'll talk about that in a later review). I now have a virtual library, a nearly complete collection of one of Marvel's most storied franchises, all for much less cost than what I used to spend to fuel my video game habit back in the Sega Genesis era. Thanks to the rapid release of these comprehensive and inexpensive tomes, this is perhaps the best time to make classic comics a hobby. Anyway, that's enough praise for the Essentials as a whole, now for my praise of just the Essential X-Men #7.

The Mutant Massacre had just abated, leaving Colossus, Nightcrawler, and Shadowcat critically injured and giving the team incentive to hold a recruitment drive. The first new member, Longshot, is probably the most unlikely and, in my opinion, poorest choice. I guess he had to go somewhere after his inaugural mini-series, but the fact remains that he's not a mutant, nor does he really believe in Xavier's dream (he doesn't really believe in much except the wonders of naïve childlike amusement). However, the team had a majority of female members and he's cute, so he stayed. Even so, his "good luck" inducing ability made me remember the similarly empowered Shamrock and wonder why she didn't get an offer (She hasn't seen much screen time since the Contest of Champions. She needs to eat too, you know!). This volume also sees the long-awaited arrival of Dazzler to the ranks of the X-Men after her disco-drenched solo series concluded (she gets a less Donna Summer-y outfit as well). Finally, Cyclops' brother Havok gets an invitation to officially join the X-club at long last.

Format: Paperback
The Mutant Massacre changed a lot of things in the X-World, and the X-Men continued to fight against the Marauders for a long time after that event. This collection has some of that continuing battle and leads through the X-Men sacrificing themselves to save the world from the Adversary, only to be reborn in Australia. It also includes a couple of Annuals which are average at best, much like in previous volumes. Plus, it's got the limited series X-Men Versus the Fantastic Four, which carries some of the plotlines from the massacre forward.
While the artwork by Barry Windsor-Smith, Adan Davis, Marc Silvestri, etc. is excellent, Chris Claremont's stories get a bit fuddled sometimes. It's almost as if he has a certain idea in his head, but has difficulty carrying it out on the page. Plotlines begin to get really dragged out here, which gets even worse as his run continues. It's still pretty good, but I can imagine the frustration waiting month to month for the originals and then not having a plotline picked up for a few months. At least here, you can read them all in a few sittings and get the picture.

I enjoy all of the essential X-men as they collect all of the issues and stories that I grew up reading. Since I missed a few issues, this was perfect to fill in the gaps.
