Today is the day that all X-Men fans have been waiting for! X-Men arrives on DVD!
With two volumes with a total of 33 episodes, this is a release that many fans will not want to miss. On the downside, there are no special features. But on the upside, X-Men is on DVD! What more reason could you want to go out and buy these two-disc sets!
These two releases come to us thanks to the Disney owned Buena Vista Home Entertainment, who owns the rights to all pre-2000 Marvel animated cartoons (except Hanna-Barbera's Fantastic Four). It is very important that you buy these DVDs for two reasons:
1) More X-Men DVDs. Disney has a habit of not releasing the entire series if it is underperforming. (Gargoyles, DuckTales or Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers, anyone?) A positive response would mean Disney would be more likely to release more volumes.
2) Other Disney-owned Marvel properties may see the light of day. Spider-Man, Iron Man, Incredible Hulk, Silver Surfer and Avengers: United They Stand could be on the horizon if the interest is there. I know I'm interested.
Also on DVD today is Spectacular Spider-Man, Volume Four which features the final storyarc in the show's first season.
