Having really enjoyed X-Men 1, I was looking forward to its sequel but I do have to admit that I did find it a bit disappointing.
It does follow on from X-men, but if you have not seen the first one do not worry as it is very easy to pick. All the main characters are there Professor X, Wolverine, Storm etc, plus some very interesting new characters espically NightCrawler.
One of the main disappointments is the disapearance of Cylops in the first couple of chapters. He does not make an appearance again until the very end and as they were trying to build on the romance between Jean Gray, Wolverine and Cylops this is a bit of disapointment. Also the ending of the book is totally different from that of the Film, which I will not give away incase you have not seen the film.
Overall good story, but could do better.
