This is my favorite X-Men cartoon. I almost didn’t give it a chance. I purposely avoided it when I saw it in the guide, but I read some very positive reviews on Netflix when it was added to streaming, so I gave it a chance and I was instantly hooked. Funny thing is, I was in the middle of X-Men: Revolution when I began watching Wolverine and the X-Men because I just wanted to see what it was like, and Revolution was sort of dragging. Instantly I liked the series and I got hooked. The character designs are excellent and the show just has a a great visual style, beautiful backgrounds, and smooth animation. The writing is very strong, too. In fact, after seeing the show I was more interested in seeing the end of Evolution given that Greg Johnson and Craig Kyle wrote for both shows. Wolverine and the X-Men did something different with the franchise, putting Wolverine at the helm and really doing something different with many characters rather than sticking to the same ole tropes.Check it out. Netflix provides the stream in HD, too.
Fans should consider picking up the Blu-ray if they like the series. There are tons of extras, including audio commentaries for all 26 episodes! Plus, the series on Blu-ray can be found for about $20…a very good deal.
X-Men Evolution, was NOT a Revolution. LOL
But yeah this series is by far the best in the new age of X cartoons.
I am still upset i didn’t get to see deadpool in a sesason 2 because Deadpool is one of my favorite comic book characters same with batman, Ironman, spiderman, thor and wolverine but now i herd they are making a deadpool aminated series for tv which is awsome
