      i have decided that "the x-men" is actually short for "the exposition men". i mean, i know this is a collection of several comic books strung together to make one big fat story,and in order to refresh readers' minds as to what happened a month ago or whatever, it is sometimes necessary to throw in little callbacks to previous escapades, but boy does it end up reading awkwardly: "this is my name. this is your name. remember when we did that?? now we are doing this. why?? in order to facilitate th [...]

      Yay! Now I can officially say that I've read X-Men: The Dark Phoenix Saga! Wheee!Quintessential is a word I've seen a lot in relation to this story. Yeah. I can see that. This was a pretty major story arc for the X-Men. You know, Jean GreyKrrrrk *slashes finger across throat*.Gripping is another word I've seen describing it. *crickets chirping* Hmmm. Yeah, not so much. Yes, I realize that this story is around thirty years old. And yet, somehow that does nothing to make the cheesetastic dialogue [...]

      The purpose of the X-men was completely subverted in this. It was so cool. Their actions are genuine and heroic, but their foes have also manipulated the world into thinking that they are the good guys too. They’ve hidden themselves rather cleverly in their crime, so when the X-men attempt to bring down such a syndicate, it makes them look like the bad guys for a change. It only took the most minor of manipulations to turn fear and respect into hatred and animosity. And when that’s paired wi [...]

      Mixed feelings for this one. Good reading for diehard Marvel and X-Men fans, but lukewarm for everyone else. While I like Bronze Age DC, I don't think I care for Bronze Age X-Men or Claremont's writing. The closest thing I can compare this to is Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, which is vital and important to the Batman universe, weird and 80s and hated by some. Unlike TDKR, however, which I own and love, this was a chore to read. Also the polar opposite of grim dark.Let me start with the [...]

      Midway through reading this classic Claremont tale, I understood its significance to the X-Men mythology instantly, and I also wondered if it had some kind of impact on the role of the female superheroine in comics back then and today. That's because I consider Jean Grey in this story to be a very empowered representation of what a comic book heroine can become and be undone for at the same time. I would like to try and touch upon that subject matter in this review.This is quite possibly the mos [...]

    • Brad says:

      This is one of the greatest comic book story arcs ever told.It has early, rough around the back-hair Wolverine. It has Cyclops at his leadership best. It has Colossus and Nightcrawler and Storm -- the Russian, the German and the African woman -- at their eighties expectation-blowing pomp. It has the Hellfire Club, the Avengers (embodied by Beast) and the Shi'ar. It has Angel and Professor X. And it has Jean Grey - Phoenix - Dark Phoenix. Did I mention it has Jean Grey - Phoenix - Dark Phoenix? I [...]

      UNPOPULAR OPINION TIME: Fuck all y'all haters, I actually like Dazzler. I somehow forgot this was her debut. People are always like, "Haha Dazzler has the power of disco! How lame! Pfffft!" Oh yeah, what's your mutation, bro? Fucking nothing? That's what I thought. First off, THAT SHIT WOULD BE AWESOME. Damn, do you know how much joy you could bring people with that power? You are literally a walking ball of happiness and fun."Oh shit, you had a bad day? LET ME PUT ON A FANTASTIC LIGHT SHOW JUST [...]

    • Cheese says:

      Hands down one of the best Marvel comic stories I've ever read. The way Claremont brings out each character and piece them together as a team is commendable.

    • Ronyell says:

      Flashback:To be honest, I actually first heard of the famous “The Dark Phoenix Saga” through an episode of the 90s “X-Men” cartoon series and that was probably my favorite episode of the entire series! Now, I had the opportunity to read this story in its original comic form and I was totally blown away! Chris Claremont had a huge reputation of being the best “X-Men” writer in history and after reading this saga, I am starting to believe that and John Byrne's illustrations clearly def [...]

      3.5 StarsI'm just going to pretend the last chapter of this nine issue arc didn't happen. The Dark Phoenix Saga is the first major event of X-men in 80's. This is where Jean Grey go complete haywire and does a whole black swan routine. SOMEONE BUY HER SOME PIZZA! This arc is also known for:※ Dazzler's dazzling debut that dazzled all the dashing devotes. *I'm really sorry for that* She is really cool though!※ Kitty Pryde debuts here too!※ X-men's long term adversaries, the Hellfire club mak [...]

    • Diz says:

      I liked this because it makes Cyclops a sympathetic character rather than the jerk that he is often portrayed as these days. Also, we have the debut of Kitty Pride and Dazzler, two of my favorite X-men. Finally, the showdown with the Hellfire Club was a lot of fun to read. The only thing that I didn't like so much was the illusions of Wyngarde. It doesn't seem that projecting an illusion into someone's mind would instantly make them lose a grip on reality. There should have been more of a mental [...]

      "This is what makes humanity virtually unique in the cosmos, my friend; this extraordinary capacity for self-sacrifice, this ability to triumph over seemingly insurmountable obstacles if the cause be just, knowing all the while that to do so means certain death."This is probably, storywise, the best volume I've read in the Marvel universe. Jean Grey has always been my favourite Marvel character, from the moment I first saw her, and this is the one stage that defines her character the most and ha [...]

    • Jessica says:

      Before I started reading The Dark Phoenix Saga, I expected that I would probably like it for all the usual reasons-- it came highly recommended, it's a classic, it should be required reading for all comics fans, blah blah etc. I was fully expecting to knock it out in a couple hours, give it a solid 3 star rating on here, and then promptly forget about it. Instead, I fell in love with the story, and with Jean Grey, and with the X-Men, and with pretty much everything else about it. Go figure. I'm [...]

    • Sunil says:

      I remember reading this in my Ann Arbor comic book store over a decade ago and being so impressed with how well it held up (and I think I was reading it without color!). While it does bear some of the ostensibly negative trademarks of classic comics like frequent recaps of events in the last issue and characters saying/thinking exactly what they're doing/feeling, this actually makes it far more accessible; you can pick this book up with zero knowledge of the X-Men and appreciate its storytelling [...]

    • Philip says:

      The most gripping event in X-men history and some say Marvel's finest moment, when comic book storytelling finally grew up. This is science fiction at its realest and in its purest form, a cautionary tale of how absolute power corrupts absolutely. When love and honor get in the way of lust and greed, the effects are nothing short of earth shattering. Want to know how to make sense of violence? To reconcile life and death? Take a look at The Dark Phoenix Saga and prepare to be transported. This i [...]

    • Andtruth Danielson says:

      This is THE quintessential Jean Grey story; it operates on a level of new emotional sophistication for Marvel Comics; it is said to be the first depiction of suicide in mainstream superhero comics; it features the introduction of the great Kitty Pryde; and it is fully imbued with that feeling you get when you read something from a bunch of artists who have pulled off something deeper and more exciting than their usual work. But on the other hand, you have to deal with writer Chris Claremont. His [...]

    • Chris (The Genre Fiend) says:

      I know, ok? I know this is one of the highest-regarded tales not only in X-canon, but throughout the whole of Marvel's 75-year output. I know it's a formative text that set the bar for writers like Grant Morrison and Joss Whedon to one day leap over (and others like Brian Bendis to limbo under with the skill of Barbados Slim). I know Chris Claremont is a visionary writer, and that the writer-artist tag team he had with John Byrne produced some of the most talked-about-to-this-day graphic literat [...]

    • Gavin says:

      A classic not of only X-Men, but of Marvel, and possibly comics in general. That being said, not everything classic shines like the chrome of classic cars. Some of Claremont's dialogue is brutal here. Just like his continual need to discuss the Ruby Quartz that Cyclops needs in his visor, or that Jean can read minds and link people, or things like that. Byrne's art works, though there are a few times it's nothing great, but that is what happens sometimes.What's really cool to me, is that this bo [...]

    • Chelsea says:

      The version I read of this had Kitty Pryde's and Dazzler's introductions and those were awesome! Unfortunately, it kind of went downhill from there. Kitty was super adorable when she first meets Storm. Ororo becomes her hero and she's incredibly brave for a 13 1/2 old girl risking her life to save them. Dazzler is pretty badass in deciding to help them even if she decides being an X-man just isn't for her. Emma Frost made a formidable foe here and it was a solid arc. I'm not entirely sure why th [...]

    • Logan says:

      Okay! So Chris Claremont has written all of the X-Men biggies, in terms of stories; Days of Future Past, Apocalypse(I think) and this one! So I will tell you off the bat, I do not like Jean or Cyclops; Jean manipulates Wolverines feelings, and Cyclops, well he's kind of a dick!!! However I did not hate them in this one, I did not love them, or really care but I did not hate them; which is good because this story mostly focuses on Scott and Jean; so props for not making me wanna punch Cyclops! So [...]

    • Mikey says:

      The "date read" above is actually my sixth reading of this book. The Dark Phoenix Saga is certainly the most gripping story arc within a major comic continuity. This is pure pulp comic book superhero stuff, but it's never been done better. Particularly astounding are two of the major action set-pieces in the story: Wolverine's rescue of his teammates, and the final confrontation with the Shi'ar Imperial Guard on the Blue Area of the moon. There's little character development, and a simple, deriv [...]

    • Jesus Saldivia says:

      I reaaaally wanted to like this more, i love Jean Grey and the X-Men are probably my favorite heroes.It had really great moments but overall it felt kind of underwhelming and rushed, plus, all that exposition, please stop.I'm giving it a strong 3.5

    • Jesse A says:

      Fine story but it has to be extra special for me to get past the old school art. Not so much.

    • Mike says:

      I did not have high expectations for my first Marvel comic. I'd read the first volume of The Sandman before this, but that didn't really count - it was by Neil Gaiman, so it was an outlier from other comics. I had all sorts of negative expectations of comics. I expected this to be sexist. I expected it to be cheesy. I expected the morality to be black-and-white. I expected it to be action-oriented to the point of excluding character development. All this I found to be somewhat true, but to a les [...]

    • Randy Mcdonald says:

      I've owned this trade paperback edition of The Dark Phoenix Saga for some time, but it struck me as appropriate to review it now. What better time is there than now, a season of devoted to the contemplation of messiah figures and the year's end, to take another look at the story of a godling brought to a premature end?I was concerned that this story wouldn't have aged well. I was drawn towards Marvel through the current continuity, a metanarrative that had evolved some three decades after this s [...]

    • David Edmonds says:

      I'm going to admit to a small love affair with this story. It may be completely dated, but to me it remains one of the most defining X-Men stories. Ever.Back in the day, the Chris Claremont and John Byrne run on X-Men was one of the most exciting eras in the comic's history. Quite a bit of what we see happening in the X-Men stories of today are direct results of what these two men did with the characters back then, and nothing seemed to be bigger during that time than the Dark Phoenix Saga. Jean [...]

    • Andrea Prepo says:

      I didn't know I could review comics here! But I think it was obvious since I've seen people add Manga volumes. Anyway, I always loved superheroes, I've watched every movie I could and x-men were always one of my favorites. So I got the itch of started reading a few comic books, after trying to understand the marvel universe and how many different series there were and how many people had wrote about this (And five differente guides of where to start) I gave up. So I picked up something that catc [...]

    • Shawn says:

      This is one of the first major X-Men stories and despite it being over 30 years old, it does not disappoint. Be warned, it still retains some of the old style of comic book writing, such as where characters have to think and explain everything that is happening. It's not as annoying as what it once was in the very first issues of the X-Men in the 60's, but there's times where you will think, "Yeah, duh!" The story is great and the artwork is very good. I've read several X-Men story arcs after th [...]

    • Chris says:

      The Dark Phoenix saga is one of the iconic pieces of the X-Men universe. The story of Jean Gray and her battle with her own mind is intense and results in an emotion driven saga with consequences that will affect each member of the team forever. Sadly the writing style feels incredibly dated. Each chapter we are forced to re-read what has gone on previous resulting in a lack of flow and irritating repetition. Claremont's writing is heavy with the cheese and his need to describe everything result [...]
