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.

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

    "It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

    “Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
