TELEVISION: THE X-MEN ANIMATED SERIES
It was the biggest effort ever put into a kids cartoon show at the time and it was fucking epic. So epic in fact that I have recently started watching it again and I am hooked.
I remember when I first ever saw the first episode The Night of The Sentinels I was absolutely blown away. The whole thing was so cool and at the time the only super heroes I and most kids knew of were Batman, The Hulk, Superman and Spider Man so when this new breed of ultra cool characters which appealed to both girls and boys came along it was a great time to be a kid.
The story lines loosely follow the Marvel Comics actual story but simplify it a lot more which is cool because it means more action. From Charles Xaviers struggle for understanding between humans and mutants, Magnetos plans of domination, Sabretooth and Wolverines grudge matches to the age of Apocolypse its all covered.
