REVIEW: Finally the last installment of what I think has been the best Marvel Comic animated Series is now available for fans of all ages. I have to say that I cannot be more please with it, since it finally completed my collection, and I finally could see the ending of the series. Unlike Volume 4 this volume does not have any impressive or major story saga, as matter of fact the only two stories that are longer than one episode are not as impressive as previous stories, nonetheless they are different, original, and of course very entertaining. So, is volume V content inferior to its predecessors? Absolutely not. In Volume five each episode stands for itself, having its own value that if put together they are equally match to any of the previous ones.
In volume five the adventures seem to begin again with a major improvement: it gives secondary characters a chance to shine. There is no arguing that Wolverine, Jean, and Cyclops are the most popular and main characters of the series, and most of the stories somehow revolve around them, in this volume the concept does not apply any longer; they will be important and would make appearances, however we will see that also characters that used to be supportive get the chance to be the main hero, like in “The Phalanx Covenant” and “The Fifth Horseman” where one of my favorites, “Beast,” is the main character, and like these we will have episodes where Storm, Rogue, Jubilee and even Sinister, are the main characters. Another major plus to the Volume is the appearance of characters such as Captain America, the Red Skull, and the return of villains of the caliber such as Sinister, Omega Red, and of Apocalypse.
As Volume 4 gives a sense of closure, Volume five does completely the opposite, it open a chance to expand stories with conflicts and crisis beyond imagination. However the series comes, in my opinion, to a force conclusion in “Graduation.” It would have been awesome for these series to have at least one more season where all the loops could have been perfectly close, but then again this is X-Men, as much we try to close the loops more will open. I Recommend this volume to any fan of the xmen or superheroes animation, also for fans of the series this is a must own to complete the collection, also I want to congratulate all the fans who supported the series, since it is well known that Disney cancels releases of any series if they don’t sell, so to all the fans you Made it happen.

SPECIAL FEATURES: As The previous volume, this DVD collection do not have any special features but some sneak peeks of upcoming Disney movies. However I have to say that this do not change my perspective on the DVD , since its value is more in the series than the features. The DVD looks however is great the cover is very colorful and persuasive and the menu is easy to navigate. One complain is that it has like eight minutes previews before it gets to the main menu.
