Let that epic theme song roar, the X-Men animated series is coming back! In one of the more shocking announcements from Disney+ Day, Marvel revealed that they are going to revive the original X-Men animated series from the 1990s. I grew up on this series. I was introduced to modern X-Men with this series. It was lifeblood to a young comic geek like me. So I say bring it on!
The plan is to revive the series and pick up from where it left off. I think it’s a weird choice, but I suppose it makes sense. It’s obviously not the first TV series to do such a thing. And the X-Men’s introduction into the MCU is still undecided. Why make a brand new cartoon from scratch if it’s going to possibly conflict with the MCU X-Men? So X-Men ’97 should be a simple nostalgia trip, using classic comic book stories and characters to keep a show going. And more than two decades of X-Men comics have come and gone since 1997, so who and what are some modern X-characters and concepts I’d like to see?
Join me after the jump for some ideas I would personally love to see translated into the classic cartoon. And please share some of your own in the comments!Read the rest of this entry
