  • X-Men meets Mortal Kombat.

    7.5
    In almost a video game-like fashion, our mutants are pitted against each other in a trial not unlike Mortal Kombat, where the winners move on to glory. In this case glory would be a spot on Asteroid M, where Magneto is finally revealed and his plan is to enhance mutants to the next level.



    I loved how easily Jean disposed of Toad, and I agreed with all the choice of winners, including Rouge, the best of the kids. The highilght is Mystique vs Storm. But the side-story of Cyclops reuniting with his long lost brother, Havok (who is now a surfer dude?) is underdeveloped. Not enough emotion there for brothers who thought the other was dead. They looked kinda cool in their enhanced versions, though.moreless
  • Scott meets his younger believed dead brother Alex in this exciting first part of an essential X-Men Evolution two-parter.

    9.0
    Nice episode. It has many plot twists and introduces a new character: Havok. Asteroid M is also introduced (and destroyed in the next episode). Magneto recruits Havok as a new acolyte, and Cyclops also joins him.

    The X-Men fight the Brotherhood once more, to prove to Magneto who's worthy to come to Asteroid M.

    This episode is good, but the second part is better.
