X-Men must join forces with the heroes of the future whan Apocalypse, a mighty mutant, is driven completely mad by his powers. Discuver the stunning conclusion to the 4-part epic Beyond Good and Evil in this sensational 14-episode set.
Volume 4's second disc is a grab bag of assorted single-story episodes, some good ("The Lotus and the Steel," which nicely encompasses Wolverine's travels to Japan; "Family Ties," in which Magneto is revealed to be the father of Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch), others less so ("Have Yourself a Morlock Little X-Mas," in which the subterranean Morlocks seek Wolverine, Jubilee, and Storm to aid an ailing Leech). Unfortunately, these are presented out of broadcast order (as is the case with the other Marvel/Disney X-Men discs), which may prove somewhat aggravating for those looking for a complete-season set. Also irksome is the continued lack of special features, though the image quality of the episodes is solid. --Paul Gaita

Really every episode from this series can be considered a fan favorite but more noticable in this collection is the four part Beyond Good and Evil saga as well as The Phalanx Covenant, Sanctuary and Family Ties.
The audio & video quality we can expect will be the same as that of the first two volumes. Episodes tended to be in the same quality they aired with minor compression issues that go unnoticed by most and didn't impede on my personal viewing enjoyment. Also the further we go into the series we should notice a slow steady improvement on the actual animation quality of the show.
There are no special features on these volumes but given the fact we're dealing with Disney that's to be expected. Television was better in the nineties. Thanks for your time.

We can now witness more adventure as episodes from season 3 and 4 are now being released. X-Men closely followed some storylines from the comics. In this one, we witness Magneto building Asteroid M, a sanctuary for mutants, Wolverine battle Silver Samurai and the X-Men even clash in an epic battle with the immortal god-like mutant Apocalypse as he plans to reshape the universe in his own evil ways. We'll even encounter Mr.Sinister as he teams with Apocalypse and Magneto who reluctantly battle along side the X-Men to battle Apocalypse.
X-Men is something for all ages. Kid and teens will love the action and adventure, while adults will appreciate the well written episodes and how some of them follow the comics. And of course, everybody will appreciate the top-quality animation created by some of the greatest animation studios of the day and everyone will love the nicely drawn awesome looking characters who bear great resemblance to the X-Men of comic book artist Jim Lee and writer Chris Claremont.
In case you're a fan of X-Men, Marvel, good action, emotional scenes or epic battles of good vs evil or if you even watched this on Fox Kids during the fantastic era of the 90s, don't miss X-Men!Read more ›
The already mentioned "Beyond Good and Evil" is an engaging set of episodes centered around Apocalypse. As I mentioned in the review of Volume 3, it is a pseudo-Age of Apocalypse but differs greatly. We get a lot of cameos from villains and hero's past and Psylocke even gets some dialogue. Overall it's a fun time travel story and one I enjoy more than the other two long arcs for the series. "Sanctuary" is another excellent two-parter that sees the creation of Magneto's Avalon and the introduction of his Acolytes. It captures the story from the comics of the betrayal of Magento's right-hand man Cortez, as he attempts to assassinate Magneto (in a Saturday morning kid's show kind of way). And for good measure, an old flame of Xavier's is thrown in to spice things up. The other two-part arc "Proteus" takes the popular classic X-Men story and adopts it for television in an appropriate way
As you can see, I think highly of disc one, so why the passable three star rating? Well, there is a disc two to this set and unfortunately it is not the equal of disc one.Read more ›

|X-Men Volume 5||
It is listed on Wikipedia as TBA, but I'm pretty sure Buena Vista HV will wait for the sales from Volumes 3 & 4 before they announce Volume 5. It is likely to be released early 2010, but knowing Disney / BVHV, they might be watching the sales figures closely. Which, of course, goes to say that... Read More
