Experience the classic Marvel legacy as the X-Men animated TV series finally explodes onto DVD for the first time. Featuring stories adapted directly from the original comic books, this collection is a piece of Marvel history and a must-have for every X-Men fan.

The Story

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 lives.

The Characters

Under the tutelage of Professor Xavier, the most powerful telepath on the planet, the mutants 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. Catch them and all their adventures on the newly released X-Men Volume 2 DVD, which includes the stunning, five-part Phoenix Saga.


    The Phoenix Saga (In Five Parts)

    Following visions from recent dreams, Professor Xavier sends his X-Men on a mission to the Eagle One Space-Station, putting them in the middle of an interstellar conflict. The X-Men barely survive their return trip from space; Jean Grey discovers herself changed by the experience. Professor Xavier's dark half is given form and proceeds to attack his students. Then, his claims of the capture of his alien soulmate Lilandra by Juggernaut and Black Tom Cassidy are met with skepticism. Lilandra seeks to protect the M'Kraan Crystal from her wicked brother, the Emperor D'Ken. But the interstellar pirates known as the Starjammers capture it, along with Cyclops, in an effort to enact their own revenge scheme on the emperor. Shi'ar Emperor D'Ken's rise to power via the M'Kraan Crystal is causing a universal implosion. The X-Men, Imperial Guard, and Starjammers find themselves overpowered and unable to stop it. Jean Grey must unleash her destiny as the host of the Phoenix, even at a most personal cost.

    "Pink_Cool_Girl wrote: GRACE DIDNT DESERVE TO Excuse me? Grace can sing really well, play the ukelele really well, and write her own songs, which are all really good. And she's only 12 years old. She is totally a million dollar find. Can you do any of those things? Anyway she's already won and words like these won't change that, or stop her from lighting the sky, because stars are dull compared to her. And I'm sure she's already dealt with haters and probably won't even read your post. Anyway my dad says that everyone who made it to the finals have futures ahead of them, and will earn millions of dollars and probably have shows in Vegas and everywhere else anyway. By the way, no, I don't only like her because she won. I was rooting for her from the first (well okay, maybe not first, but definitely second) act. We all have our fandoms to defend, and girl, what you said was harsh.
