The collection of cartoons from the X-Men cartoon series includes: "Out of the Past-Parts I & II" These two episodes explore the origins of Wolverine and explain how his former love became a hated nemesis, the feared Lady Deathstrike. "Nightcrawler" This episode of the series introduces the X-Men to the mutant of faith, Nightcrawler. "The Lotus and the Steel" Taking a plot directly from THE SEVEN SAMURI, Wolverine leaves the X-Men and goes to Japan in order to find inner peace. He finds instead is a village under the reign of a gang of terror and discovers that in order to find peace with the world, one must find peace with one's self first. This DVD also includes the bonus episode: "X-Men: The Final Decision" The X-Men join forces with Magneto to prevent the collapse of all mankind, mutants and non-mutants alike. The DVD also includes an interview with X-Men writer, Chris Claremont; Chris Claremont's talk about each of the episodes on the DVD; and a brief interview with Stan Lee. I enjoyed watching each one of these cartoons. They work well as an introduction to the X-Men (especially Wolverine and Nightcrawler) and are full of action. The interviews with Chris Claremont and Stan Lee are especially interesting and full of nuggets of Marvel trivia. A nice collection for a fan of the X-Men or for someone interesting in learning more about this superhero team.
