X-Men Animated Series on DVD Today

X-Men the Animated Series DVD Volume 2Friggin’ sweet! The legendary Fox animated series, X-Men, is out on DVD from Walt Disney Home Video today!

They are releasing two volumes, each volume a 2-disc set. This is the X-Men cartoon that ran from 1992-1997.  There were five seasons altogether of that series, and these DVDs cover the first 2 1/2 seasons.  If you click here for a complete list of episodes from the X-Men animated series, these DVDs cover episodes 1 through 33.

I’m working my way through these DVDs now and will be doing a full review within the next week.  However, I gotta say these stories already remind me why I loved the X-Men!  Fox did a good job adapting those classic Claremont tales.  You can’t help but get caught up in the X-Universe again with: the Nazi hatred and bigotry that created Magneto; the time travel twists-and-turns of Days of Future Past; Alpha Flight confronting their former teammate, Wolverine; Angel’s transformation into Archangel; the battle for leadership of the Morlocks; the manipulations of Mr. Sinister; the Dark Phoenix saga; and more!

You can pick up both volumes up at your local DVD retailers today, or order them online from Amazon by clicking here for Volume 1 and clicking here for Volume 2.

Here are a couple clips to whet your appetite and bring back some memories.  Enjoy!

    It’s about time. I wish disney didn’t own the rights to any of the marvel shows or we would’ve gotten this years ago. Hopefully the success of x men will get disney off their butts and they’ll put out the rest of their marvel library.

    I bought the volume 2 dvd at best buy the other day and was so hyped to see that it has the phoenix saga on it(best saga in t.v. history). Even though it just came out I cant find the first volume because its already sold out, I’m hoping that the final 2 1/2 seasons come out soon so I can enjoy every episode of the best comic based cartoon ever.

    When will the rest of the of the seasons be released?

  4. Peter Says:

    It is annoying that Disney has the rights to the Marvel animation library, but let’s be grateful that it was released at all. There was pretty high demand for this series, and was the cornerstone of all future Marvel animated series. Spider-Man, Iron Man, Fantastic Four, we can all thank X-Men for their existence.
