X-Men - The Phoenix Saga

While these X-Men cartoons are not known for their outstanding animation, I can whole-heartedly recommend them for their storytelling alone.
The animation is acceptable - standard Saturday morning cartoons (not cgi, but animation).
If you've not seen the X-Men cartoons featured here, we are presented with this main group as the X-Men Team: Cyclops, Jean Grey, Gambit, The Beast, Wolverine, Julibee and Storm. And, of course, Professor X leads them. Rogue is around, but not in the first couple of episodes.
These combined episodes make a wonderfully told story. The characters are very faithful to their comic book counterparts, and have a depth that a lot of other cartoon characters lack. Be that praise for the comics or these episodes, matters not.
The DVD comes with few features. You're given the option of viewing all episodes or each episode individually. Please note - there are no chapters within each episode.
The sound quality was good and the voice-actors are effective.
It's the writing though, that lifts this series. It's a great story.
I recommend this DVD for the comic or cartoon fan. You won't be disappointed.
This Dvd includes 5 episodes of the Phoenix Project shown in 1994.
Jean Grey converts onto Phoenix to save the galaxy from the evil emperor D'Ken who wants the M'Kraan crystal to control the galaxy and have their own world.
Lilandra the sister of D'Ken have taken the crystal with her and needs the help of the X men to defeat D'Ken evil plans.
Fun and entertaining.More episodes are on Vhs I hope they transfer soon to Dvd.
