Read full description of the books Essential X-Men, Vol. 3:
This period of X-history was interesting. They'd recently come through two major events, the Phoenix saga and Days Of Future Past. Kitty Pryde joined the team as Sprite, the Angel hung around after helping during the Phoenix adventure and Storm took over from Cyclops as team leader.
This collection covered issues 145-161 plus a few annuals. During this time, the team faced down Dr. Doom for the first time, met Caliban when he unsuccessfully tried to steal Kitty to be his bride and while searching for Cyclops and his new love Lee Forrester, found themselves face to face with Magneto. The Angel left the team before the Magneto battle due to his dislike of Wolverine's killing ways. They fought the Badoon alongside the Fantastic Four to save Arkon the Imperion's land from the Badoon's hostile takeover, battled the Hellfire Club and then found themselves diving headfirst into a cosmic adventure that stretches past this collection and into the next.
Corsair of the Starjammers returned and revealed to Cyclops that he is Scott's father. They and Storm fought off an attack by alien bounty hunters who destroyed the X-Mansion and regrouped with the others on the island Magneto abandoned after their battle. In between a first fight against the Brood on Earth and space battles against a rogue faction of the Shi'ar who wanted to destroy the Earth, Storm had to deal with Dracula, lord of vampires- twice.
Colossus' little sister Illyana fell through a supernatural warp on the island and returned to them seven years older. Only seconds passed on Earth, but she spent seven years with the demon-lord Belasco in what to the X-Men was the blink of an eye. Before they could even process this, they were attacked and captured by the Brood.
This was a jam-packed and exciting time in the team's history, and I enjoyed the look back.
