Marvel Must Haves: Ultimate X-Men #1–3

    (Marvel, 2003)
™ and ©2003 Marvel Entertainment Group

One of the earliest titles in this series of low–cost, high page count Marvel reprints, this issue features the first half of the now classic tale “The Tomorrow People,” which re–introduced the X-Men to a new generation of fans and die–hard Marvel Zombies alike. For those who don’t know, in the Ultimate Marvel Universe, the characters and stories you know and love (or have never heard of) have been stripped of 40 years worth of continuity; streamlined for freshness and a unique perspective without the fear of treading on history. This book introduces the team of intrepid mutants (those born with powers and abilities beyond mere humans) and takes them into their first adventure against their archenemy, Magneto. As they say in the funny papers, this isn’t your Daddy’s X-Men—but it certainly bears a striking resemblance! The Must Have books are a great way to sample multiple titles from Marvel’s stable of top–notch books and hot sellers.
