This is one of the comics on my list of omgeleventymustread comics and I was skeptical going in (it's a default position mostly) because the older the comics, well... the less pretty the graphics (hides in shame). However, who has time to think about the graphics when you're dropped straight into the horrific incident that kicks off the story? I was quite shocked by how dark this story is because clearly no one's ever written anything subversive before the 1990s and obviously the X-Men aren't analogous in any way (facepalm).

Very dramatic, very believable and utterly engrossing. Stryker's a perfect villain because he's so real in his very human hatred, and yet, the story doesn't end with the mutants and humans firmly on opposing sides. Rather there is room for overlap and the possibility of different people being on the same side because good people can see right and wrong. What an excellent story. I was blown away completely. And those last frames - gah - awesome.

This volume had other stories too, which were quite enjoyable. Though I did find myself wishing (a lot) that Kitty might lose her ability to phase through objects, while phasing through. And then stay there. Forever. ( )

Took me back to my childhood. Very much enjoyed the experience. Classic X-Men ( )

A fine X-Men graphic novel about the prejudice and fear that men often direct against anybody different from themselves, often cloaking it in the words of God. This story is a tale that has been told many times throughout history, only the hatred that was before directed against different skin color, or creed, or appearance, is now directed against mutants - those born with special powers and abilities. A good story with an important lesson. ( )

One of the original batch of Marvel graphic novels, and well done. Some of this was of course adapted for the X-Men 2 movie in a somewhat different format. Graphic novels of this type were new and innovative then. A somewhat more adult and tragic look at racism and the tensions and violence between humans and mutants.
