In a world that hates and fears them, several mutants (humans who are born with unique powers and abilities) have banded together to fight the hatred, and eventually fight for their very lives. Under the tutelage of Professor Xavier, the most powerful telepath on the planet, they learn to master their powers. Cyclops, the team leader, can shoot laser beams from his eyes. The rebellious and feral Wolverine can heal himself and has metal claws. Jean Grey is a telekinetic and telepath. Rogue has super-strength and the ability to fly, but can never touch another human being. The eloquent Storm can control the weather. The Cajun thief Gambit can charge any object with kinetic energy... making the smallest objects powerful bombs. The Beast has superhuman intelligence, agility, and has a body covered with blue fur. Jubilee is the new girl, a confused teenager with the ability to shoot plasma from her fingertips. Together they form the X-Men, fighting mutants like Magneto and Mystique, as well as stopping hate-mongers like Graydon Creed, Henry Guyrich, and Senator Kelley.
Top customer reviews
The volume two dvd set is great picture quality, great transfer to DVD and the second volume is a great watch.
X-MEN VOL. 2... continues the cliffhanger from X-Men, Volume 1 (Marvel DVD Comic Book Collection) and ends with the five-part "The Phoenix Saga." The stories follow the comic books pretty closely and show some origin stories like "A Rogue's Tale" that shows how Rogue got her powers.
"The Phoenix Saga" follows the comic (if you want to read the original check out X-Men: The Dark Phoenix Saga) and I enjoyed all of the episodes except "Mojovision," the last episode on DVD 1.
I also noticed that some of the villains in this volume also make their appearance in these two "X-Men" games X-Men Legends II Rise of the Apocalypse and Marvel Ultimate Alliance, so check those out if you don't have them already.
There are no extras on this DVD set and you have the option to "play-all" or "episode selection." I read that some reviewers have said that these are edited from the original broadcast showings. I'm not sure about that and like I said for X-MEN VOL. 1, if these episodes are edited, I can't tell the difference since I don't find any continuity errors.
This volume concludes season 2 and although the last episode isn't necessarily a cliffhanger, you can't help but wonder what's going to happen next.
Can't wait for the remaining seasons!
