Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
During his original run of X-Men (1975- 92), Claremont saw the series become Marvel's most popular. His God Loves, Man Kills GN (1982)-no longer available as a standalone but reprinted here with a new sequel-is one of his best-remembered stories (it inspired the film X2: X-Men United). The original story involves evangelist William Stryker, who believes that only true humans are God's children and that mutants are tools of Satan. Stryker plans to kill all mutants on Earth, and the X-Men must team with their opponent, Magneto, to stop him. In this sense, Claremont added dimension to the series' traditional theme of prejudice-a power retained here. In the sequel (oddly placed first in the book), Stryker meets his opposition-a zealous mutant who believes that humans are the ones without souls-and the X-Men are caught in the middle. Unfortunately, this follow-up is confusing and has a contrived ending. Still, the X-Men are as popular as ever. Recommended for collections that don't already own the original story.
