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.

    Brave, but only because there was no love interest and it wasn't a musical.

So even though Tangled was really funny i will always pick Brave. That's a really good point ^-^ I still like Tangled better. The plot made more sense and was better written (in my opinion though) I thought the humor was better as well; definitely a lot less crude! Also, the lack of songs in Brave bummed me out... it is a Disney Princess Movie :/ (Don't argue that it's Pixar!) Wait you think because it's a Disney movie there has to be singing!? Really that's dumb. Ok that Iis just my opinion. But really that's dumb.  No, that's not what I think. They're are plenty of Disney movies without singing. I just would appreciate that aspect -especially in a Disney Princess movie, but it's okay.
