Marvel X-Men Volumes 3 & 4 (DVD)

I can’t believe I missed out on this as a kid. I was into everything from He-Man to Thundercats when I was younger, but for some reason I never got hooked on X-Men. Watching it over 20 years later, I now wish I would have seen it then! DVD Volumes 3 and 4 of this classic series are out now and it is a must see for any true fan out there. These are extremely entertaining and I definitely recommend checking them out! Both are 2-disc sets, with Volume 3 containing 15 episodes and 14 on Volume 4. The episodes on these sets are filled with intriguing stories and loads of action. Anyone familiar with the X-Men movie trilogy will remember Jean Grey becoming Phoenix. Well, on the Volume 3 set, there is a 4-part series titled “The Dark Phoenix” that cannot be missed if you loved that storyline from the film! Overall, if you never saw this animated series that stayed true to its comic book roots, then do yourself a favor and check these out!
