Top Customer Reviews
The difficulty with this format is that the issues collected do not follow one another. And if you are not familiar with some of the teams (Gen X, X-Force) you may not know the characters well.
If you can forgive the lack of continuity, the issues themselves tend toward the humorous (which can be a nice break from the more serious tone of the x-men's current desperate situation after the M-day event).
Generation X 5 has the youngest x-men visiting NYC. Gen-X was a new trainee team after New Mutants ended. And, honestly, other than Jubilee these are very minor characters who are relegated to marvel history.
Uncanny X-men 244-245 are the best issues in the collection. In 244 the X-women go to the mall (you can see marvel's sense of humor here). The ladies get make-overs, get their hair done, watch a chippendale's stripper, and defeat some mutant hunters. The x-"men" go bar-hopping in issue 245 and Longshot is a hit with the ladies. Then power-hungry aliens show up.
Uncanny X-men 323 has Rogue and Iceman on a road trip with a twist: no powers! What is a mutant with no super powers to do when they get a flat?
X-Force 71, 75 has the team hit then town (71) and then hitch a ride with Shaggy and Velma (using aliases of course) on their way to the burning man festival (75). I was pleasantly surprised: this incarnation of X-force includes many of the former New Mutants and characters (Domino, Deadpool) that continue to play important roles in the marvel universe.
Wolverine 78 has wolvie riding his motorcycle through frozen canada while people try to kill him.
Uncanny X-men 138 is the aftermath of Jean Grey's death and cyclops takes some personal time.
Before the mood gets too serious a brief episode from Marvel Treasury 26 comes in. Hercules and Wolverine get in a bar brawl.
All in all, if you are generally familiar with the x-men, this graphic novel is a wonderful collection of some of the more humorous x-titles issues.
