Release Date: May 4/August 17, 2010

Wolverine and the X-Men: Revelations and The Final Crisis Trilogy wraps up the popular Nickelodeon series from Craig Kyle and Greg Johnson (creators of X-Men: Evolution). After a surprise attack on the Xavier School, The X-Men team is left in pieces. Professor X, the team’s leader and mentor is in a coma and Jean Grey is presumed dead, sending Cyclops into a tailspin. With the team unofficially disbanded, it is up to Wolverine to pick up the pieces and bring the team back together.

These two DVDs tie up all the plot threads left dangling from the series, answering all the important burning questions. Who really attacked the X-Men? Will Professor X finally escape the future and return to his body in the past? Is Jean Grey alive? Does Wolverine have a chance to save the Earth from an apocalyptic future, where all man and mutant kind are exterminated? All these questions are addressed and more, plus there are more mutant appearances than you can shake a stick at. Everyone from Magneto, Gambit, and Scarlet Witch to the Hellfire Club are all present, along Cyclops, Storm, and everyone’s favorite Canuck, Wolverine.

For those who have just joined the ride, Wolvie and the X-Men is the continuing story of an alternate X-Men universe. This world is not exactly “world turned upside down” different, but the subtle changes, along with the additions of some of the details from the comic and movie version gives this an almost Elseworlds type of feel.
