Excellent story from the X-Men!
7 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first saw this little video of "X-Men: Gifted," I was so amazed at how good the story was here that I started reading X-Men comics frequently after that since before I had seen this, I rarely read any X-Men comics.

The story of "X-Men:Gifted" was just so fantastic as it deals with the X-Men coming face to face about the idea of being "cured" of their mutant abilities and how some of the X-Men reacted to that. Joss Whedon has done a brilliant job at weaving an action-packed story while exploring all of the characters in the story, which really made me feel connected to all of the characters and how they deal with this situation. I also loved the surprise of a certain X-Men character that I have grown to love over the years (but I won't spoil it!) Probably the only problem with this story is that the animation is a bit jagged as the characters don't really move fluidly and their facial expressions seems to be stuck on one expression whenever they are talking. However, since the story is really story, this can easily be overlooked.

I would strongly recommend "X-Men: Gifted" to anyone who is a fan of Joss Whedon and love a good X-Men story!
