When the young mutants traveled to the Savage Land, a tropical throwback in the middle of Antarctica, they encountered the world’s original giant monsters: dinosaurs! Cyclops and the gang avoided a phalanx of pterodactyls to rush right into the arms of the not-so-friendly Swamp Men, who in turn introduced them to a hungry tyrannosaurus. Needless to say, the X-Men made their escape to return more than once to the prehistoric playground.

A gigantic dragon returned with the X-Men from the first so-called Secret Wars and immediately began to lay waste to Tokyo.
