    This collection contains issues 22 31 from the original run The original team consisted of Cyclops Angel The Beast Iceman and Marvel Girl Jean Grey Professor X and his giant mutant brain are on hand to lead the team I mentioned in my reviews of the first two X Men Marvel Masterworks that those early issues can be awfully cheesy and that remains true for issues 22 31 as well Yeah There are a lot of silly costumes and a lot silly dialogue in this book These issues were published from 1966 67 and the standards expectations of the medium were different than they are today Some people will find this level of cheese delightful while others will find it overwhemingly obnoxious Personally I kind of enjoyed it in a nostalgic sort of way but I had to limit myself to one issue at a time to avoid severe eye rollingThe first X Men Marvel Masterworks is interesting as it contains the original issues that started it all The second introduces the Juggernaut and the Sentinels for the first time so it too represents some X Men history This one? Not so much The X Men are mostly battling a random bunch of 3rd rate villains that I had never heard of and this collection doesn’t really introduce anything of importance That said now that the creators have 21 issues under their belts I do think the overall uality of the writing and artwork is higher than in the first two Marvel Masterwork collections I mostly enjoyed these issues even if I didn’t recognize any of the weirdos the team was facing and I certainly enjoyed them as a youngster which was the intended audience for these early issues 3 stars

    Complete slogIt feels like no real advances happen for the overall plot Just some teases of a secret organization There’s a lot of returning villains andor villains from other comics and it honestly does nothing for me Also the complete verbal diarrhea on every page is mentally draining

    I don't usually rate a x men book this low but it started out as a hot read with some unusual characters It uickly got boring and repetitive I usually dont start a book and not finish so I did the noble thing and finished this book It an above average book which some may deem worth reading

    Reading silver age comics can be jarring when you are used to modern comics These issues of the X men are hyper dense in terms of the text per panel that make much of this collection drag even as a modern reader like me could also celebrate these early stories as the foundation of the decades long superhero soap opera it would build to Roy Thomas is a solid writer and it is refreshing to see heroes sidelined for multiple issues with injuries rather than rely on healing factors or time jumps to get the full suad back to peak performance For example Cyclops injures Angel and he is basically out of action for the next four issues What holds this collection back is Werner Roth's art It just isn't very good You would be tempted to blame it on the period he was working in but the one issue Roth isn't responsible for Issue 30 The Warlock Wakes is innovative and interesting in a way the other nine issues in this collection never sniff at Roth just doesn't seem to have the imagination or skill that the X Men deserve and I have to wonder if the series had had better artists at the helm if the X Men would have taken off long before Chris Clairmont got his hands on them

    Very middle of the road fare with no interesting developments With the exception of Banshee no interesting villains are used all one shot wonders

    Roy Thomas starts off his tenure as writer of the X Men by showing off his knowledge of Marvel history this could have been a good thing had he done something interesting with forgotten characters or former X Men villains However he just sort of parades meaningless moments and characters who should have been forgotten and doesn't do anything spectacular with them Yes he does create the Banshee but he makes him a confusingly motivated ancient man and needs several tries before he can do something with him A great deal of the issues in this collection feature a dead end plot thread of Jean leaving the team to attend Metro College enrolling during the summer for no reason It's a dead end because Jean usually finds the time to join them on their missions anyway Despite initially feeling relief she is no longer a fighter she apparently takes the time to sew new uniforms for everyone and rejoins them anyway All supporting plot threads that could have been interesting such as Ted Roberts Jean's classmate who suspects the teens are the X Men are inexplicably dropped without any resolution Thomas even brings the Mimic back as a teammate of the X Men at Xavier's reuest but this goes nowhere despite some good character moments since after a few issues Thomas has the Mimic lose his powers again It's worth reading because it is classic X Men and Thomas does manage to get a few good character moments in there he finally gets the ScottJean romance going after a while but it's not the best storytelling done in the X Universe Like with many TPBs I read the individual issues
