"We're the X-Men. When we're on the job, nobody dies." - Sage
So says the newest member of the X-Men. But tell that to the original Thunderbird. Or Phoenix. Or Colossus. Or Psylocke. All died for the cause of peace; for the cause of mutantkind.
They are the X-Men - born different, sworn to make a difference. They have promised to bring peace with their lives - and sometimes, with their deaths - to a world that hates and fears them. That is the way of heroes.
They are the latest step in mankind's genetic evolution. And here, in this special volume, they are trapped in a land populated by the world's first beings - dinosaurs - in a place known as the Savage Land.
And while they oppose enemies ancient and arcane, they also will confront a force far more mysterious: The changing face of their very identities! Their very sense of self will be put to the challenge.
They will learn that the soul may be the most savage land of all.
Cllected here for the first time in one new volume is the entire four-issue limited series X-TREME X-MEN: SAVAGE LAND, written by legendary X-Men author Chris Claremont and penciled by Kevin Sharpe.
