Volume 7 last edited by pikahyper on 01/03/19 05:09AM View full history

Continuing the story of Marvel's original mutant adventurers, the MARVEL MASTERWORKS brings you the rarest X-Men appearances collected together for the first time ever! When the merry mutants hit the skids, they don't buckle under - they hit the road, and you're riding shotgun. So sit back and get ready for a set of stories that rock the X-Men world to this day! Pushed undercover by mutant paranoia run amok, the Beast sets off on his own, taking a genetic research job with the Brand Corporation. But Hank McCoy's scientific curiosity will come to curse him forever as an experiment gone horribly wrong turns him truly into a beast. Fanged, covered in head-to-toe fur, hunched over and driven to bouts of furious bloodlust, McCoy must struggle to retain his humanity as he struggles against the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, Quasimodo the Living Computer, Juggernaut, the mutant Mimic and the emerging menace of the Secret Empire that seeks to rend the X-Men asunder. Meanwhile, you'll see Havok and Polaris head to the desert Southwest - but somehow excitement doesn't stray far when the green-haired magnetic mutant encounters the green goliath himself, the Incredible Hulk! Iceman engages in aerial battle with someone who might not call him "friend," the Amazing Spider-Man - but all is forgiven when the combined X-Men team-up to aid the wall-crawler against the living vampire, Morbius! This volume is a must-have for every mutant madman.

Oh, What Could Have Been... 0

I understand this comes at a very strange time in Marvel history, when the X-Men are moribund and not the powerhouse of today, and while the focus on Hank McCoy in his own title is wholly deserved, the creative team does no justice to his character or his story. I grew up with Hank McCoy already in his furry form, so I was originally surprised when I learned he wasn't always like that. Now that I have finally read through the issues up to this point, I was disappointed in the actual transformati...
