Great Art, and 2 Great Stories

This Tradepaperback collectes the first 7 issues of X-Men Volume 2. The first arc is a 3 parter with Magneto and nuclear weapons, the second is with a new villain named Omega Red and is linked to Wolverine's past. the best thing about this book is Jim Lee's art, when you open up a comic book, it should like this, bright colors, amazing art, and muscle-bound characters. A must-have for any X-Men fan.

Best of the best, remineds me of better times for the X-Men

P>This is the last and probably bet X-Men stories every. It combines the talents of Chris Claremont (before he was fired and X-Men fell apart) and Jim Lee when he was still letting his art flow naturaly. Hands down Lees bet are work ever! And if you know Lee that's saying a lot.<p>The story focuses on the X-Men Blue Team. Cyclops, Wolverine, Rouge, Gambit, Phylock, Beast, and Jubilee. The battle their old foe Magneteo who is back with a vengence to take over the world.<p>The second part of the story introduces us to a trio of Wolverine's arch villians, The Hand, Sabertooth, and Omega Red. The conspire together with one of Wolverine's evil creators to unlock Wolverine's seceret past and get more than they bargined for. <p>This is the X-Men at their absolute best just before they sank to their absolute worst. <p>Lee's artwork is breath taking.

Excellent Stories and Art

..."Mutant Genesis" reprints (in color, not b & w) the first seven issues of the second series X-Men (now renamed New X-Men) from 1991. Claremont writes the first three issues, and John Byrne and Jim Lee write the remaining four. Lee provides pencils for all.The the 3-issue story "Rubicon" represents Claremont's finale as he left the series he'd written for 14 years and made the highest selling comic EVER. It ranks among his best writing (which is saying a lot). The story revolves around Magneto's quest for vengence against Charles Xavier and Moira MacTaggert, involving nearly thirty years of X-Men history, including the effects of the Holocaust, prejudice, nuclear proliferation, and the effects of anger on the human soul. Highly recommended.If you enjoy this trade, I would recommend Claremont's work in:"X-Men: God Loves, Man Kills"; "X-Men: Vignettes"; and the four volumes of Essential X-Men b & w reprints.
