X-Men Volume 5 DVD Review

Posted 10 years ago by Television

Along with Spider-Man and Batman, the 90s animated X-Men cartoon has always been one of my favorite cartoons from my childhood. Back in September I reviewed volumes 3 and 4 of the show’s run on DVD, and now it comes to an end with volume 5.

I never really thought we’d get this many episodes of X-Men on DVD, so I’m pumped to finally have them all. Well, I’d still like to see the 1989 pilot Pryde of the X-Men get a DVD release, but maybe if we buy enough of these sets they will release it.

Volume 5 contains the following episodes on two discs:

Disc 1

  • The Phalanx Covenant (Part 1)
  • The Phalanx Covenant (Part 2)
  • A Deal With the Devil
  • No Mutant is an Island
  • Longshot
  • Bloodlines

Disc 2

  • Storm Front (Part 1)
  • Storm Front (Part 2)
  • Jubilee’s Fairy Tale Theatre
  • The Fifth Horseman
  • Old Soldiers
  • Descent
  • Hidden Agendas
  • Graduation Day

I remember being particularly pumped about Old Soldiers when I was a kid. I loved Captain America and was super excited about the idea of a WWII episode of X-Men pitting Logan and Steve agains the Red Skull.

The show is still watchable, you just have to take it with a grain of salt. There are lots of complicated plot lines and “Previously on X-Men” to keep up with, but this show reminds me of being a kid in the 90s so much that I don’t mind.

The 2 disc set is out now, so what are you waiting for?
