The X-Men are back for more nonstop thrills and excitement in Volume 3 of the definitive animated series. Faithfully created from the pages of the original Marvel comic books, these classic stories are a must have for any X-Men fan.
When the all powerful Dark Phoenix inhabits the body of Jean Grey, the X-Men go to battle in order to save one of their own. Get into the action with 15 spine-tingling episodes, including the 4-part Dark Phoenix saga in this collectible 2-disc set.
The saga of the Dark Phoenix--in which Jean Gray is possessed by a powerful and destructive cosmic being--is the centerpiece of X-Men, Volume 3, which compiles the conclusion of the third season of 1990s animated series X-Men and the beginning of its fourth. The story line, which unspools over 4 of the double-disc set's 15 episodes, largely echoes the one outlined by Chris Claremont, John Byrne, and Dave Cockrum in the print version circa 1976-77, with Gray/Dark Phoenix installed as the Black Queen of the Hellfire Club's Inner Circle, her destruction of the D'Bari star system, and the X-Men's fight against the fearsome Shi'ar Imperial Guard to decide the Phoenix's fate. It's a thrilling quartet of episodes, and the highlight of the set; other story arcs include Wolverine's never-ending quest for the facts of his past ("Weapon X, Lies and Videotape"); Morph's return to the X-Men, which is dampened by an attack by the Sentinels ("Courage"); appearances by Nightcrawler, Iceman ("Cold Comfort"), and Archangel ("Obsession"), who recruits Rogue to battle Apocalypse; and a nice nod to the Age of Apocalypse story line in the two-parter "One Man's Worth." Those who remember the TV series will be pleased to have this current go-round of episodes, despite their being out of broadcast order (which results in some continuity confusion); newcomers will appreciate the plentiful action and smart scripting. As with previous Buena Vista X-Men releases, no extras are included in the set. --Paul Gaita

Volume 1 and Volume 2 had slip covers as well. I think it was limited or something, but that was the only difference making it limited.

Also the episodes on the Batman The Animated Series DVD's ARE in the correct order (NOT airdate order). WB actually got it right.

|Episodes on the X-Men Volume 3 & 4 DVD are not in the correct order!||
I think that was how it actually aired the first time around in the 90's-- I got confused when I saw that episode *after* the Dark Phoenix saga.
