Book Description

15 Aug 2007 Graphic Novel Pb
As the X-Men embark on their inaugural world tour, they must confront some unsettling truths about their mentor, Professor Charles Xavier. Before founding his school for young mutants, Xavier abandoned his only son, David, a mutant with uncontrollable reality-warping abilities. Now, David has returned, looking to exact revenge on the father who left him - and he's willing to eradicate anyone who stands in his way. Will the X-Men be forced to kill Xavier's son to end his threat against the world? Following the tragedies of their world tour, the X-Men seek the calming protection of Xavier's school - but their suspicions of his methods only increase. Xavier's mental blocks on student Jean Grey's psychic abilities continue to crumble, and she grows increasingly unstable - plagued by visions of a world engulfed in the flames of a fiery phoenix. When the X-Men finally meet Xavier's mysterious financial backers, Jean's hallucinations become reality as the otherworldly Phoenix takes possession of the teenage telepath. Also included in this volume is a bonus tale of Gambit, a Cajun street hustler who must use his mutant gifts to protect a homeless boy in great danger. Collects Ultimate X-Men #13-20.

The X-men face Proteus, the story from book 1 evolves and the X-men meet Xavier's sponsors.

This collection with a few different contemporaneous plots is a very good continutation of the Ultimate X-men series. Highlights are Proteus,the storyline with Beast and the ending, (which for those familiar with the x-men canon should be tantalising, setting up for a lot of excitment to come I hope.) Also especially good is issue 15 with Xavier's Newsweek article on mutation and mutant life. Also includes a stand-alone tale with Gambit which is a good read. I must admit to not being a massive fan of Gambit (which goes against the grain of many X-men lovers). As with the last issue the artwork is very nice across the board, though a couple of the issues maybe a bit too cartoony for my taste but still very well drawn.

I do recommend this series and the book. It is a good reboot of the old comics, including retellings of the old storylines and some new ones with modern style artwork, which personally appeals to me a lot (though still a fan of the older comic style).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good - except for the bonus Gambit story! 9 Nov 2008
Another largely excellent Ultimate X-Men trade paperback, collecting the twelve issues in the 2nd year of Mark Millar's take on Marvel's premier mutant team and also featuring a bonus story by Chuck Austen featuring X-Men fave Gambit. The first story arc, `World Tour' has the X-Men up against Xavier's teenage son Legion, who has uncontrollable reality-warping powers and is angry at Xavier for leaving him and his mother - Moira MacTaggert - some years before to set up the X-Men. Legion is a very dangerous and unstable mutant, who does not hesitate to kill and whose aim is to destroy everything that Xavier and his dream stands for - a plan which involves wiping out several of the world's major cities. Will Xavier's X-Men be prepared to use lethal force to stop the insane Legion, in defiance of Xavier's pacifist ideals? In the second story arc, `Hellfire & Brimstone', Xavier and his X-Men prepare to meet the wealthy and mysterious benefactors who have been funding Xavier's school. These benefactors are revealed to be an organization calling themselves The Hellfire Club, and they have a special interest in teenage X-Men telepath Jean Grey, who has been having severe psychotic hallucinations and visions of a fiery Phoenix engulfing the world in flames... Finally we have a bonus tale featuring Cajun street hustler Gambit, using his special gift of being able to charge physical objects with kinetic energy to protect a young homeless girl from gangsters who would harm her.

Comments: I found this to be another largely excellent Ultimate X-Men trade paperback. The first story arc delves into the skeletons in Xavier's closet, as we are introduced to the son and wife he left - or some might say abandoned - in order to found the X-Men, and see the present day consequences of those past actions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Issues in this Collection: 7 May 2013
By Sara*or - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Product description here and on other websites was not clear at all as to which issues were in each ultimate collection, and I was given to understand that book 2 (this one, as seen above) contained issues 13-20, and book 3 included 26-33 and Ultimate War 1-4. That would leave 21-25 missing and mean one would have to purchase vol. 4 Hellfire and Brimstone as well as the ultimate collections.
I took a chance however, and bought the 2ed Ultimate Collection, and it is IN FACT listed in the book itself that it contains issues 13-25, so there is no need to also buy Hellfire and Brimstone, or to purchase the individual, smaller TPB's for fear of not getting five of the issues. I thought this would be helpful for those who would rather buy four books instead of eight.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent story but very inconsistent art quality and style 5 Nov 2013
By Andy Marlinata - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good story but not as good vol.1. The worst part is that the art is very inconsistent and none of them are as good as the first volume, too. That's why I give it 3 stars. If it's only for the story, I would have given it a 4 stars.
5.0 out of 5 stars great story 25 July 2013

Great story from the writers; makes the original X-Men story updated for all of us younger readers. I've let many people read this series, and they all love it.
3.0 out of 5 stars Serviceable 18 May 2013
By Brian B - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My feelings about the Ultimate Universe are a bit mixed. I think Ultimate Spider-Man is easily the best run on Spider-Man ever and I feel like the other books have their own positive attributes as well. However, more than the other books, I feel like Ultimate X-Men is just going through the paces. Part of the problem of course is that the X-Men, more than many of the other Marvel characters, have very famous storylines that people really want to be retold. As the cover indicates, this book hits on the Phoenix saga. And, well, it's a serviceable story but not one that I felt overly invested in. It adds nothing to the original Hellfire club arc and, frankly, comes off far worse. It does, however, set up some interesting things for the next set of books (and actually Ultimate Collection 3 has a good tag from Thor on the Phoenix issue that has me looking forward to where this goes in the future). All in all, it's an interesting read but not a great one. If you haven't delved deeply into the Ultimate line, your money can really be better spent elsewhere. If you're already invested into the Ultimate Universe, this book lays the groundwork for volume 3, which really helps flesh out the ultimate universe and, frankly, makes it feel like a universe.
5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate X-Men: Ultimate Collection, Vol. 2 Review 23 Feb 2012
By Xavier Zavala Heras - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
So, after a kick ass final battle on Volume 1, the X-Men became famous. Feared, but famous. What could ruin they're current status?

Profesor X, or they're own insecurities?

Man! These collections is going from awesome to magnificent. The art is great, the writing is over the top.

You owe it to yourself. You owe it to your geekdoom. GET THIS!!!
