5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating volume! 26 Jun 2014
By Eva
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Fall of the Mutants is a fascinating and important storyline in the X-Universe and, as I love X-Factor, I had to have this volume. It can be read without volume 1 (I bought volume 2 as I wanted only the X-Factor issues).

The story is set in a difficult period for X-Factor as Iceman cannot control his powers, Beast is getting stronger but less intelligent, Jean Grey and Cyclops' relationship is getting worse and worse and Angel is apparently dead. Additionally, X-Factor must deal up with X-Factor's P.R. manager Cameron Hodge, who is in fact the leader of an anti-mutant team and wants to destroy X-Factor. On top of that, X-Factor must face Apocalypse and his Horsemen.

The X-Factor issues were awesome. The core story of the Fall of the Mutants (in this volume) is X-Factor #24-26, but this volume includes issues #18-26! So you have a lot of interesting and enjoyable stories in this volume. The issues I enjoyed most were X-Factor #18, X- Factor #20-24 and my favourite issue from this volume is X-Factor #26. There are a lot of awesome things happening in these issues, such as revelations about Cameron Hodge's true identity, X-Factor trainees' moments, the opening of Angel's will, the brief story about Apocalypse's past, Angel's transformation into Apocalypse's Horseman Death, Jean Grey and Cyclops' kiss, the touching ending of X-Factor #26 and many more!

The tie-ins were a mixed bag. I found the Captain America issue and the Power Pack issue a little boring, although the Daredevil issue and the Fantastic Four issue were good.

Also issues #336-337 of Incredible Hulk featuring X-Factor are collected in this volume. The issues were captivating and overall really good. I especially liked the superb penciling.

All in all, this volume includes some of the best X-Factor issues and it is an interesting read for every X-Men fan. Don't miss it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enlarging a Previous Collection 2 Dec 2013
By Daneel Olivaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Back in 2001, Marvel published a trade paperback collection titled "The Fall of the Mutants" which collected the story arc wherein Apocalypse first challenged the mutant superhero teams (X-Men, X-Factor and New Mutants) in pursuit of his philosophy combining Darwinism and Genghis Khan (mutants will grow stronger and more fit to survive if you keep trying to kill them). This was the story where Warren Worthington III became the blue skinned, artificially winged avatar of death. This one-volume collection reprinted Uncanny X-Men #224-226, X-Factor #24-26 and New Mutants #59-61.

Then, in 2013, Marvel issued a two-volume trade paperback collection that collected more of this "Fall of the Mutants" story arc, reprinting all the stories from the earlier book and more. Volume 2, the book currently under review, provides only the X-Factor stories but more of them: issues #18-26, as well as the crossover stories from other titles such as Incredible Hulk (#336-337), Power Pack (#35), Daredevil (#252), Captain America (#339) and Fantastic Four (#312), where those other, non-mutant, characters had to deal with the fallout of Apocalypse's attack on New York and, in the case of Cap, on the Midwest farm belt. (The Hulk story really isn't part of the Fall of the Mutants arc, but has X-Factor during the same time frame investigating a possible mutant sighting that turns out to be the Gray Hulk rampaging through Sparta, Illinois, the town where comic books were printed at the time.)

Thus, you have two versions of this story arc, the original one-volume compilation and the more recent two-volume expanded version. Both contain the core story, but the two-volume set gives you a much more complete and comprehensive account. The main value of this second volume is the crossover stories, none of which are essential to the main plot, but several of which are excellent stories. Of particular note are the Power Pack story, written by Louise Simonson, where the kids try to save their mom who is stranded in the subway during Apocalypse's attack, and the Daredevil story which was written during Ann Nocenti's excellent run on that title and exemplifies why it was so excellent.

If you want everything, you should get the two-volume set. But since I already owned the one-volume version, I found it enough to just buy the second book in the two-book version, since I was only getting a repeat of three X-Factor stories and the rest of this 400-page book was "new." But you can look at all three product pages and decide for yourself.
4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the first volume 14 May 2014
By Ben Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This story is really a must-have for any fan of Warren Worthington as a character, or Apocalypse as a villain. Apocalypse had fought X-Factor a few times before this, but this was his first major push, and actually turned Angel into an interesting character for the first time in his existence. I didn't really like what they did with Beast in this storyline though. They put him through a bunch of random changes during the X-Factor days before settling on his blue-furred look between the formation of X-Factor and sometime before this team rejoined the X-Men, and it got a little old.

You'll also get a few crossovers here, including X-Factor fighting the Hulk during the lead-up to the Apocalypse story, and tie-ins with Captain America, Daredevil and Power Pack as they help deal with the fallout from Apocalypse. There's also a team-up with the Fantastic Four and Black Panther tacked on at the end that doesn't really add much to the main story. You will also see a bunch of young mutants hanging around who would later go on to join the New Mutants and then the original X-Force, for whatever that's worth to you.

The art looked good in spots, but overall was not all that impressive.

I'd recommend this book to any fan of the original X-Men or Apocalypse.
