4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun, lovely printing (SPOILERS) 12 Sep 2012
Format:Hardcover
Well, firstly the obvious: this is a HUGE book, with 700+ pages and very well presented.

This covers not only the monumental Fatal Attractions storyline, but also some of the build up to it. The main event, though, is what everyone will be interested in, and it has some cracking moments - Ilyanna Rasputin's death issue is incredibly poignant, and the final face-off with Magneto is classic stuff. I had heard that some of the Lobdell-era X Men titles weren't up to much, but this was pretty good stuff.

When the upcoming Bishop's Crossing HC comes out, there will be an unbroken run of UXM from Inferno through to the end of this book. That's an awesome run..

Reprinted 1994 Fatal Attractions TPB cover and introduction
Variant Cover Art Gallery

The issues collected here were first published in 1993-1994 during the 30th anniversary crossover event called Fatal Attractions. The thick glossy pages present the art better than it has ever been seen before. And the thick dust jacket and sewn binding ensure that this archive will last a long time.

This massive book weighs in at 788 pages of comics plus art galleries, and is the most complete (and beautiful) edition of a crossover event that shaped the X-men for the rest of 1990s and beyond.

The art in these issues is not always even, and the pacing for the plot does hit a few snags (as is always the case when multiple titles are brought together); however, the overall effect is a powerful and gripping story that features all the action and soap-opera relationship drama that make the X-Men the fully realized characters that readers love.

The plot (in broad strokes) involves Magneto and his Acolytes waging war against mankind, and Xavier's mutants have to stop him. But the outcome of Magneto's war is worth the winding path through all the Fatal Attractions issues.

Magneto strips wolverine to his core. Wolverine learns that he was born with his claws (yes all the Origins issues have established this fact, but back in the 90s Wolvie's search for his past was a mainstay of the X-Men franchise). Xavier breaks his own ethical code to stop Magneto once and for all. These are fantastic moments, and Fatal Attractions is filled to the brim with epic combat.

The bonus galleries at the back of the book contain some great artwork. However the MSRP is still fairly high for this collection. I was able to get it at a discount through Amazon, and I am happy with the overall value. There are many hours of reading here. There is delicious eye candy in some of Marvel's finest early 1990s artwork. I think other readers will enjoy the action space drama beautifully archived between these covers.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most dramatic stories in X-Men history 1 Oct 2003
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Fatal Attractions collects X-Factor #92, X-Force #25, Uncanny X-Men #304, X-Men #25, Wolverine #75, and Excalibur #71. When Magneto returns to his Acolytes and becomes more of a threat to humanity than ever before, all of the X-teams become engaged in battle in this then shocking cross over; the effects of which were felt in the X-books for almost a decade. Many memorable moments are to be found here including the fight between Magneto and Cable which leaves Cable a bloody, ripped apart mess, Colossus betraying the X-Men and siding with Magneto, Magneto ripping the adamantium out of Wolverine's body, and the final showdown between Magneto and Professor X; the culmination of which would create the Onslaught storyline years later which crossed through every Marvel title and caused the deaths of the Avengers, Captain America, Iron Man, the Fantastic Four, and countless other heroes. If your interested in picking this collection up, I'd go for the single issues (each of which had really cool covers with an attached hologram card) instead of this TPB. All in all, this is one of the most dramatic X-stories in years, and undoubtadly one of the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Definition of Frustration 15 Oct 2000
By Stuart Brewster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
As part of the celebration of their most successful franchise, Marvel Comics orchestrated "Fatal Attractions" in 1993 to bring storylines throughout its X-Men related titles to a head. They succeeded in refocusing the X-Men on their true literary purpose (Dark Phoenix was a fantastic story... but what did it have to do with oppression?) and leaving an impact on the X-Men universe that would be felt for the remainder of the decade. Although this book features many dramatic moments, including Magneto forcing the adamantium out of Wolverine's skeleton and Colossus giving up on Xavier's dream, most compelling is easily Professor X's confrontation with Magento. Feel the frustration of 30 years gone by and no ground gained. Know the consequences of hate and broken hearts. Wish for a better world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ya liked Onslaught? Ya gotta have this. 11 Aug 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a great way to get one of the most important parts of Xmythology - Magneto ripping out Wolvies admantium and Xavier displaying the anger that resulted in onslaught.
This one you have to read to understand Magneto/Xavier and Onslaught.

4.0 out of 5 stars The early 90s X-Men event that shaped things for years to come 5 May 2012
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Fatal Attractions was a mega-crossover X-Men event that celebrated Marvel's merry mutant's 30th anniversary, and featured a handful of big moments and events that shaped the X-Men mythos for the rest of the decade to follow plus. The storyline of Fatal Attractions features Magneto crossing the line, prompting the X-Men to make a final stand against him, and culminating in Professor Xavier doing to his one-time friend what he thought he'd never be able to do beforehand. Loaded with historic moments, including Colossus joining Magneto's Acolytes, Cable getting stripped to his very core, and a face-off between Wolverine and Magneto that strips him of his adamantium and first revealed a huge secret of his past, this crossover never managed to disappoint. Re-reading the whole thing now in this handsome Omnibus, which features a bevy of extra issues that set the stage for the event and wrap things up in the aftermath of which, Fatal Attractions surprisingly still manages to hold up pretty well. A number of 80s/90s X-Men events don't hold up that good anymore sadly (X-Tinction Agenda, Operation: Zero Tolerance), so seeing that Fatal Attractions does puts quite the smile on my face. There's a bevy of talent behind this crossover, including the usual lineup of X-people like Fabian Nicieza, Scott Lobdell, and Chris Bachalo, plus Peter David, Joe Quesada, Larry Hama, and the great John Romita Jr. All in all, if you have fond memories of this 90s X-crossover, do yourself a favor and pick this up, you won't be disappointed.
