Customer Reviews

It is NOT a reproduction of the original comics.
I. Cable
This is a great X-Men story that features some of the top talent of the 90's.
Brian Willis
If you know nothing of the X-men, buy this book and read it.

One of the best X-Men storylines ever! It centers around the 3 x-teams (X-Men, X-Factor, and the New Mutants) being captured by the state of Genosha, a neo-nazi place. Cameron Hodge, a cyborg enemy wants to execute them for high treason against Genosha, but secretly hopes to wipe out ALL mutants off this planet. Lots of events happen, such as internal bickering between the teams, a kiss between Jean Grey and Wolverine, Cyclops v.s. Havok (his brainashed brother) and tons of action. Also, it was really emotional as Warlock is killed by Hodge, and Wolfsbane and Storm are transformed into mindless Genoshan slaves, called Mutates. This is one awesome storyline, and you just HAVE to read it!!!
It contains 9 issues:
Uncanny X-Men #270- Storm, Boom Boom, Rictor, Wolfsbane, and Warlock are captured.
New Mutants #95- Powerless, the captured mutants escape, while Warlock dies and Wolfsbane is captured again.
X-Factor #60- The rest of the x-teams go to Genosha, where Cyclops fights his brother Havok.
Uncanny X-Men #271- Wolverine, Psylocke, and Jubilee arrive at the scene and help save Boom and Rictor. Wolverine and Psylocke attack the citadel, only to be captured, while Storm is turned into a mutate.
New Mutants #96- Half of the remaining X-Men attack, but are rendered powerless and get captured. Meanwhile, Wolfsbane gets transformed into a mutate.
X-Factor #61- The remaining X-Men (except for Boom Boom, Ric, and Jubilee) attack, but end up powerless and captured.
Uncanny X-Men #272- The captured X-Men are put on trial and found guilty. Hodge then begins to torment them, but realizes there are traitors among Genosha. Storm is releases of the mutate bond, and restores Cyclops' power, who then attacks Hodge.

Format: Paperback
Magneto, Apocalypse, Sinister, the Hellfire Club, the Sentinels... the major arcana of X-Men foes, and yet there is one evil that ranks above even this rogues gallery of dark demigods: human fear and hatred of mutant kind. The Genoshan government is human bigotry toward mutants incarnate; all which Magneto had warned the rest of Homo sapiens superior against made real and localized to a tiny island that built a utopia on the backs of a slave class of mutants.

In the X-Tinction Agenda an entire nation declares war upon the X-Men (and subsequently X-Factor and the New Mutants). To ensure their victory, the militant, mutant hating Genoshans form a dark alliance with Cameron Hodge.

At the time the war on the X-Men is declared, the X-Men hardly exist as a team, a Diaspora that has been in place for some time (Xavier was off planet, expected not to return and nearly every X-Man was long ago counted for dead). A small number of them have regrouped in the ruins of the X-Mansion, still devastated after the climax of Inferno, but the New Mutants, under the care of newcomer Cable, are also in residence, and chafe at the sudden invasion of their home by X-Men who have seemingly risen from the grave. Storm, who at the time had physically reverted to a 13-year-old form, and several of the New Mutants are kidnapped by a squad of Magistrates in a lightening strike assault of the campus.

Although the kidnapping was widely publicized, the US government was taking little action against the abduction of children on their own soil, and so the remnant X-Men, X-Factor and the remaining New Mutants gather together to coordinate a clandestine rescue effort.

I read this crossover event when it first ran through the issues of Uncanny X-Men, X-Factor and New Mutants. The storyline is good and Marvel was good enough to include the original 4 part story that introduced Genosha in Uncanny X-Men. Chris Claremont is at his finest and Jim Lee's art in the Uncanny books is just simply amazing. And then you have Louise Simonson. Hated her writing back then, hated it when I re-read the HC. Louise Simonson writes dialogue like she was writing for a radio teleplay... completely over the top and unlike any human being would speak. An example that just had me wretching; "Hodge, why have you brought that alien creature here, where I create the mutates who provide for Genosha's well being?" Really? Simply campy and awful. And the bad news is that she is writing 6 out of the 9 issues of the crossover. Mainly this book has made me look forward to the upcoming Claremont/Lee Omnibuses that are coming out in a few months. What if the Louise Simonson issues were written by someone capable? I guarantee you, with a story this strong this could be remembered up there with "Dark Phoenix Saga" and "Days of Future Past" if only Marvel had allocated the proper talent.

I read the X-tinction Agenda story when it was first published. As a kid I thought it was an amazing/serious story that ran through Uncanny X-men, X-factor and New Mutants. At the time it was a mega crossover story in the X-books. Jim Lee's art was superb, Rob Liefeld's work on New Mutants excited and I tolerated Jon Bogdanove's chunky X-factor pencils. I picked up this new collection to see how this particular story aged.

First, I want to say that this is a nicely packaged book. Marvel added the earlier X-story which introduced Genosha to the X-Men as well some bonus art. As for the actual story "X-tinction Agenda" hasn't really aged well. At the time the death of a member of New Mutants was supposed to be shocking. The return of Cameron Hodge as a cybernetic monstrosity now looks ridiculous (especially in some panels where he is shown with a cardboard suit hanging around his head for a TV show). Ultimately as put the book down I felt like this book was exactly what it was meant to be - a poorly executed money making crossover book. As a kid it was exciting but as an adult I was just looking at characters being driven by a thin plot.

The Jim Lee artwork is still amazing and worth the cost of the book alone. Rob Liefeld's work has only lost its appeal and Jon Bogdanove's work still hasn't clicked with me. For those that did enjoy this story this is a nice book.
