This collection was material all new to me. These collected issues came out not long after I'd stoped reading X-men as a High School student. I hadn't like the direction Claremont was taking the book and really disliked the JR, Jr. artwork. So all these long years between then and now, I've had a bitter prejudice against not only this title but comics of this era in general as well.

I've set that aside as best I can and plunged into THE GIFT, the preceding Epic Collection, and read GHOSTS quickl

I'm a big fan of Chris Claremont's X-men run, but this collection is a mixed bag. A big part of the problem is that it gets pulled into the Secret Wars II crossover, which leads to a lot of ponderous stuff with the Beyonder.

As part of trip to Earth to explore what it's like to be human, this god-like figure gives Rachel Summers enough power to potentially kill him. (It's what passes for entertainment in the cosmic set, I guess.) But she has to augment her power with others' life forces, and we

More 80's X-Men! I really enjoyed this collection which includes Uncanny X-Men #199-209 and X-Men Annual #10.

It all begins with the return of Freedom Force, the government's super-powered task force made of former members of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. They capture Magneto (recently reformed to the good guys) and take him to stand trial for his villainous past.

In the process, a lot of major events take place. Professor Xavier has to leave Earth and the X-Men behind to find a cure for his il

I first read all these when I was a tender 15 years old, and to revisit them now was familiar and perfectly strange. What affected me then, as a SUBSCRIBER to this title and this title alone, was the combative posture toward the majority that alienated and denigrated and segregated its "gifted youngsters". What strikes me now is the frantic wordiness of it, the telling of everything, even what is shown. Romita Jr. is still not a favorite of mine and I still don't think he was right for this, but ...more

My classic Claremont X-Men re-read continues into the '80s, with Ghosts, Storm taking over the team, what feels at the time like a definitive confrontation with the Hellfire Club and resolution of Rachel Summer's plotline within the team.

This graphic is good, though derailed partway through by a forced-in Secret Wars crossover, and acts as a good quality transition piece between the classic Claremont/Byrne run and the later '80s, crossover heavy plotting that is to come. Fun, but not as standalo

This is an odd time for X-Men, oddly dystopian. Also Kitty Pryde is now Shadowcat, Collosus has taken a backseat to Magik his sister, Storm had lost her powers and sports Morlock like punkness, Scott is a dick to his wife and mother of child (future Cable), and we have Rachel the Phoenix Mutant Hunter from a different timeline future. Rogue has also joined and we have bizarre Mojo adventures and trendy xmen like LongShot who was hip for a certain era... It's a very deep angry storyline with some ...more

Some of my favorite stories, especially Nimrod and Hellfire Club. Classic Claremont and John Romita Jr.

what a poor collection. too much connection to secret wars and the beyonder. the wolverine story is good though. it ends with the terrible mojo in a terrible story.
