Editorial Reviews

Wolverine must reunite the X-Men to prevent a horrible vision of the future...In the late 20th century, mankind began to change. Suddenly, teenagers developed incredible abilities that science classified as the next stage in human evolution. In response, Professor Charles Xavier created The Institute for Gifted Youngsters so the young "mutants" could learn to control their uncanny abilities and live in harmony with the non-mutant members of society. From then on, Xavier's students -- the X-Men -- intervened to protect the peace until a mysterious explosion devastated Xavier's school. Leaderless and without direction, the X- Men disbanded and the man known as Wolverine struck out on his own. One year later, the once fiercely independent Wolverine must reunite the X-Men to prevent a horrible vision of the future where the X-Men have given up on Xavier's mission and the world has fallen into chaos. With great tragedy in their past and their future, Wolverine must lead Xavier's disillusioned heroes against the forces of fate and destiny. Only together can the X-Men steer the course of history away from catastrophe and save us all.

1.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for the series, 1 star for this DVD March 19, 2009
Let me start out by saying I love the series Wolverine & the X-men. This DVD is three of the first episodes are on this thing churned out by Lions Gate & Nickelodeon to make a quick buck. Soon for less than twice the price of this DVD you can buy the whole 1st season of Wolverine & the X-men. Save your money and boycott these quick cash garbage DVDs.

1.0 out of 5 stars WASTE OF MONEY AND PRODUCTION RESOURCES! March 10, 2009
Three episodes? THREE EPISODES?! I agree with "Marvel Me", this is a complete rip off. This show only has one season so far, and it has 26 episodes. Why are they releasing volumes of this instead of a complete season? I can support the original X-Men series volume releases that are coming out because of the quantity of episodes they have in each volume, but the volume releases of this and X-Men Evolution are RIDICULOUS! They need to release full seasons of season 1 and 2 and then release season 4. Then they need to release a complete first season of Wolverine and the X-Men because I WILL NOT buy these volume sets. I also will not buy season 3 of X-Men Evolution unless I can get seasons 1 and 2 COMPLETE not VOLUMES, and not unless season 4 is release. Why waste production costs on a disc with 3 episodes? More people will buy complete season than they'll buy a 3 episode "volume". Waste of time, money, and production costs.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best X-Men adaptation yet. February 27, 2009
Sure, we all loved the early 90's X-Men cartoon. For me, it was arguably the thing that turned me into a comic book fan, though it would be well over a decade before I had the means to indulge in the source material. But that show was far from perfect and while it is still an enjoyable crib-notes version of the important events and characters of X-Men history, it didn't do everything right and the animation hasn't aged particularly well. X-Men Evolution was better than it's given credit for, but the high school setting made for some unnecessary cheese. The X-Men film trilogy was very strong as far as live-action comic book adaptations go, but it fizzled in the end and didn;t really encompass all that was the X-Men. "Wolverine and the X-Men" skips the history lesson and drops us right in the middle of bonafide reckoning for the well-established mutant superhero team and gives us definitive versions of our favorite characters in all-new adventures. The result has been...ummm...X-ellent? No? Sorry. Had to try the bad X-pun. It's kind of a thing with me.

Now, a big complaint from fans prior to the series was "Wolverine is not a leader, who would follow him?" That is actually the very point of view of the show's creators. In the opening salvo, Professor Xavier and Jean Grey (who is so charming we fall in love with her in a single shot) both vanish in an explosion at the X-Mansion. Cyclops is so devastated that he quits the team and goes into seclusion, wallowing in his own self-pity like the sissy we all knew he was. The end result of the catastrophe is the complete dissolution of the X-Men.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this. April 29, 2009
Like others have said, don't buy an intentionally gimped version of what should be a full product. Companies do not deserve your cash for these kinds of efforts.

4.0 out of 5 stars WOLVERINE IN THE LEAD April 26, 2009
By Sesho
One year ago, a large explosion destroyed the Xavier Institute, and seemingly brought Charles Xavier's dream of having mutants and humans coexisting to an end. Professor X himself and Jean Grey have been missing ever since that day. No bodies were ever found. The X-men disbanded and, along with all of the student body, have gone their seperate ways. The political climate has gotten worse ever since the blast as well. Led by anti-mutant fanatic Senator Kelly, a Mutant Response Division (MRD) has been formed to capture dangerous mutants. To Kelly, that means ALL mutants! Wolverine has been wandering the American backroads on his motorcycle all this time and keeping a low profile. But he gets the attention of the MRD when he saves the life of a girl trapped in the wreckage of a burning train, wounding himself in the process. When the family of the girl he saved is arrested for harboring Logan in their house, he decides that ignoring what is happening in the country is something he can no longer do. Wolverine decides to reform the X-men. But it's easier said than done. Cyclops has always been the guy in charge of the team, but ever since the disappearance of Jean, he's become an emotional and physical wreck. He's living in a seedy motel, never shaves or cleans himself, and appears to be drinking heavily. It's up to Wolvie to get team back together, but neither his demeanor or personality lends itself to the coolheaded analytical thinking that a leader needs. But what choice does he have?

I notice a lot people bellyaching about the fact that this dvd contains only 3 episodes and that Marvel should have released it as a first season set instead. The crummy quantity is nothing new to cartoon dvds so I don't see why everyone is complaining.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wolverine/X-Men Review
The DVD was OK. As an X-Men fan, I wouldn't say this was the best in X-Men animation, but it was OK.
