This series is one of the few where having the original broadcast versions is not better. So many of those early episodes aired initially with incomplete special effects shots, coloring mistakes, dialogue sync errors, poorly animated scenes, and so forth. The two-part pilot episodes in particular have several variations due to repeated corrections and alterations (FOX initially aired unfinished, error-ridden versions of the pilot episodes as part of a 'sneak preview').Read more ›
À par ca rien à redire pour ceux qui aiment les héros Marvel je vous le conseil fortement.
I just wish they put as much effort into this as WB put into DC's seasons (Batman, Justice League, etc.). Those were nicely packaged in multi-disc box sets with lots of bonus content, and they look great on the shelf together. These are just 2 disc volumes in regular plastic cases. Still, it's X-MEN!
True, it's never quite the same watching it more than a decade later, but it's still awesome.
So hurry up and buy this already so that they release the rest of it!
Hopefully they'll finish releasing this series and then they'll release the Spiderman series from around the same time. The 90's Spiderman was pretty great too.
A young girl named Jubilee, who has just discovered that she is a mutant, is minding her own business at a mall. Then a building-sized robot called a Sentinel smashes through the place, determined to capture her -- and she's barely rescued by a group of mutants known as the X-men.
These mutants work under the telepath Charles Xavier, trying to help protect mutants from evil humans, and humans from evil mutants. There's a large faction of slavering mutant-haters headed by the corrupt Senator Kelley, who is helping fund the creation of the Sentinels. And on the flipside, there is the cruel Magneto, an old friend of Xavier's who sees mutants as superior and wants to dominate normal humans.
But they also have other problems to deal with over the course of these episodes -- Sabretooth, a sewer-dwelling band of mutants, a trap laid on the island paradise of Genosha, a mansion-smashing mutant, a time-traveling mutant who tells them of a horrifying future that one of them will cause, the maniacal Mr. Sinister, and an immortal mutant named Apocalypse who wants to bring about... well, the apocalypse.
"X-Men: Volume One" is a really good introduction to this cartoon series -- it introduces all the major characters and themes in the first few episodes, and then charges off on a round of well-written, action-packed episodes. Even better: it has a moral message about prejudice and hatred that it doesn't shove down your throat... most of the time.Read more ›
