Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

A pair of potent multi-episode stories--the tragic tale of supermutant Proteus, and Apocalypse's world-shattering scheme to attain godhood--are the cornerstone of this double-disc set, which compiles most of the fourth season of the 1990s X-Men animated series. The Proteus two-fer, adapted from the 1979-80 story line in Uncanny X-Men, concerns a superbeing with powers of possession and reality alteration who escapes confinement at the Muir Island Research Centre (where he'd been placed by his mother, Moira McTaggart) to search for his father, who rejected him at birth. It's a fairly moving story that hews closely to the print version (Proteus is less lethal here, and the meeting between father and son has a milder ending) and should please X-Men fans who value accurate depictions of the canon. The Apocalypse arc, which unspools over four episodes, is more complex: "Beyond Good and Evil" has the archvillain kidnapping psychics--including Jean Grey and Professor Xavier--to unleash a wave of mental energy that will destroy the world so that he can rebuild it in his image. The scope of the story is fairly impressive (it was originally intended as the conclusion of the series) and satisfies both the action and speculative-fiction elements that make the X-Men such an enduringly popular series. A second two-parter on disc 1, "Sanctuary" (based loosely on the "Fatal Attractions" arc from 1993), finds Magneto securing a permanent home for mutants on Asteroid M, but running afoul of Fabian Cortez and his Acolytes.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars X-Men Rises From The Ashes On DVD (2) June 20, 2009
After the release of Volumes 1 & 2 most fans were ecstatic to be able to own the first three and a half seasons of this classic animated series on studio released DVD. The problem with Disney is you can never tell if they will finish releasing a series or cancel it because of poor sales or God knows why. Luckily fans of this series will be able to collect more episodes this September 22nd with the further release of X-men: The Animated Series with Volumes 3 & 4. Volume four is confirmed to contain the following fourteen episodes from the fourth season of the show spread across two discs:

Disc 1
49 Proteus (1)
50 Proteus (2)
51 Sanctuary (1)
52 Sanctuary (2)
53 Beyond Good and Evil (1)
54 Beyond Good and Evil (2)
55 Beyond Good and Evil (3)
56 Beyond Good and Evil (4)

Disc 2
57 Have Yourself A Morlock Little Christmas
58 The Lotus and the Steel
59 Love in Vain
60 Secrets, Not Long Buried
61 Xavier Remembers
62 Family Ties

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars X-Men are back with more fun, action and adventure June 30, 2009
In my opinion, X-Men, Batman TAS, Spider-Man, Animaniacs, Power Rangers, Eek the Cat, Bobby's World, Tiny Toons and all the other shows that were featured on Fox Kids were the very best shows. X-Men, in spite of being a Saturday morning cartoon gathered very high ratings. In fact, it was so successful that it ran for a whopping 76 episodes with a total of 5 seasons, all the way from 1992 to 1997. In fact, it is the longest running Marvel animated show with Spider-Man being the second longest. X-Men has often been compared to Batman the Animated Series in terms of quality.

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!

By Joe H.
Volume 4 is best summarized as a mixed bag. There are some stellar episodes contained on this two disc set and some stinkers. Such should be expected considering the creative crew was admittedly running low on ideas and did not expect the series to receive a fifth season. The four part "Beyond Good and Evil" was actually to be the last set of episodes (like with the other releases, the episodes here are in broadcast order and not production order) and would have been a fitting way to end the series. I for one, am glad the series continued as there are still some good ones to come but the best days for this series are unfortunately behind them.

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.

Episodes on the X-Men Volume 3 & 4 DVD sets are not in the correct order!
Your confusing the Phoenix Saga (which is on Volume 2) with the Dark Phoenix Saga, it's an easy mistake.

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
