    Good, but only for the dedicated fan

    This book is nice in that it tells many classic stories that are, to use the term, 'essential' to what the Xmen are now. You see the beginnings of characters like Polaris, Banshee, Illyana, and Kitty Pryde. Without giving it away, it shows the aftermath of what happened in the Phoenix stories, and the prelude to the Dark Phoenix story. Just for that, the book is worth it! However, on the downside, it's really outdated, and needs to be read with a grain of salt. Some scenes make you grit your teeth, and you have to say to yourself, 'Well, I guess that's how they would do it in the 70's, or 80's.' That detracts a LOT from the story, however, and makes it just a mediocre story at best. I recommend this only for the most dedicated fan who wants to see some of the early stories of the Xmen
