About This Card
There were 100 cards in this set. I think this is one of the best
X-Men card series ever produced. The art was much better on all
of the cards than it had been in some of the previous sets. Plus
they had a little more fun with the characters, especially with the
"Haunted Mansion" subset where different heroes were dressed as
Cards: I won't
display every card from this series because I don't think every card is
necessarily attractive or otherwise special. What
you'll see here are some of the cards I think stand out.
I hope you enjoy these cards, too!
#8: Jean Grey
#38: White Queen
Even though she's all covered up in this picture, she's still extremely
sexy due to her sleek curves. Well done.
Beast as Ben Franklin
I like it when Marvel used to have fun with their characters, such as
in this subseries. The "Haunted Mansion" cards were entirely
#92: Cyclops as The King
Very obviously a salute to Elvis Presley.
#93: Gambit as the Cajun Cowboy
I like this look for Gambit better than his standard costume.
#96: Psylocke as the French Maid
This is just too awesome! I loved it when Marvel made their
female characters kind of kinky and interesting. A lot of this
great artwork just isn't done anymore.
#97: Rogue as the Vampiress
Hot! Vampiress was a good fit for the character, since she drains
people of their energy.
#98: Storm as the Witch
This is one of the best Storm cards, period. I just love how
she's drawn here.
#99: Wolverine as Captain Claw
He's a pirate, and the only one in this subseries that is assigned a
unique name. Wolverine is certainly the most favored of the X-Men
characters, and has been for years.
