Read full description of the books Essential X-Men, Vol. 2:
Its incredible that this one book contains the quality of stories that it does. The hunt for Mutant X. The Dark Phoenix Saga. Cyclops leaving the X-Men (?). Days of Future Past. This was truly a great time to be an X-Men fan.
The hunt for the reality shifting Mutant X/Proteus is probably my favorite X-Men story of all time. Tons of tension as the body count rises only to get battles that are absolutely crazy as reality literally gets flipped inside-out. I was a little disappointed that they didn't include the short "Shreds of Humanity" though as it went a little deeper into Wolverine and Nightcrawler's battle with Proteus... Oh well.
The whole time this madness with Proteus is taking place, "Jason Wyngard" is laughing his ass off, foreshadowing the Dark Phoenix Saga. This is probably one of the more well known X-Men stories and it was good to finally be able to read it all. I was surprised both with the ending and how truly screwed up Phoenix was at her darkest. Really easy to see why Cyclops left.
Then there's the introduction to Kitty Pryde / Days of Future Past, an epic of a story condensed into maybe two (three?) issues. I really love the X-Men stuff that has them dealing with their being different. A story about the Sentinels taking over and rounding up all mutants into ghettos resulting in a possible nuclear holocaust? Nice.
I really like the team under Storm's leadership and am looking forward to reading more. This is about the time that I stopped reading X-Men, so the future is kind of unknown. Yay!
