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 more silly dialogue in this book. These issues were publishe [...]

Roy Thomas takes over as writer and things get well, just about exactly the same, honestly. I'm not sure how much of a hand Stan The Man had in the plotting and characterization of these books (he's listed as editor), but it certainly seems like the folks at Marvel figured it wasn't broke so why fix it. That the title was cancelled 30 issues after this collection (before being revived again, of course) says to me that maybe they should have paid more attention.

I don't usually rate a x-men book this low but it started out as a hot read with some unusual characters. It quickly 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.

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 s [...]

The emotional characterization in this volume picks up quite a bit. But I was really annoyed that they call each other by their real names in battles all the time! After making a huge deal about their secret identities in multiple issues. There are other oversights like this that bring down the quality of the book, but if you can ignore it, it's not a huge deal. Some of the villains are ridiculous, like the Maggia (the porcupine guy, I mean come on), but some of them I really enjoyed like the Lo [...]

The stories are ok. It depends what you're after. There's not much character development happening, but that's to be expected of early comic-book issues. The problem, in my opinion, is that, since it is focusing on action each and every time, the stories seem to always be set in the same pattern - easily spotted every time.What's a bit annoying, and the other fans of the series have noticed it as well, is the fact that, Roy Thomas, the writer, is such a huge fan of the Marvel universe, that he c [...]

- This one wasn't as fun as the previous 2, but I still enjoyed it.- Jean should just hook up with Warren!!!!! Why is she wasting her time dreaming of Scott? Scott is so dramatic and emotionally unstable. Warren is good looking, has money, and is more forward about how he feels. - Jean and Cyclops are just getting annoying. I'm tired of the "Oh, I can't tell her how I feel!" crap!- I like the new costume change, especially Marvel Girl's.- It was fun to see a few cameos in this volume. Quicksilve [...]

By story arc-Nefaria/Maggia - Lame villains, good plot. 3 stars-Locust - Again, a decent plot, but the villain's costume was too corny: 2.5 stars-Magic pendant - Extra star for the key plot point of Cyclops accidentally clipping Angel: 2 stars-Mimic stuff - 3 stars-Banshee - 4 stars-Warlock - 2 stars-Cobalt Man - 2 stars

Count Nefaria makes his first X-Men appearance, becoming a pretty important character when the series relaunched in 1975. Still, other than the first appearance of Banshee, this is pretty mediocre stuff, possibly because of Roy Thomas coming on as a new wirter and not being able to immediately find his feet.

More classic X-Men. I liked Roy Thomas's issues more than Stan Lee's but as with Volumes 1 and 2, these are neat to see how the team has evolved but I wouldn't recommend them to those looking to get into the series.

Certainly the best X-Men volume until now. Lot of actions, cool news characters, story is a lot less repetitive than it was. It set the bar really high for the next one!!

I don't like the ComicCraft cover compared to the standard, but this is the one I own.

These ones were a bit boring, but let's wait to see how the story unveils.

I'm not sure if these are getting better, or if I'm just getting into the humor of the cheesy dialogue, but this is my favorite volume so far.
