Wolverine cartoon in 2007

Recommended Posts

First, this thread is awesome.

Second, I'm more worried about the Iron Man cartoon than the X-Men one. Iron Man as a teen? Seriously? I know there was Teen Tony for a period in the 90's, but Iron Man is not a teen hero. Spider-Man is the teenage hero for kids to identify with, but Iron Man? Just no.

You're telling me you cannot identify with a teen billionaire who owns a arms company and has suits of armour that he flys in?

You sir must have been deprived as a child. :P

I guess Jean really is going to stay dead for awhile since they aren't even putting her in the cartoon. Kind of a strange choice having Domino with the Brotherhood, and is that supposed to be Avalanche? For such a small character, he's managed to make it in every cartoon.

Nicktoons Network has announced that "Wolverine and the X-Men" will premiere on January 23:

Nicktoons Network, the fastest growing kids' network, introduces Wolverine and the X-Men, the new action-packed animated series based on Marvel's ever popular Super Heroes. Produced by Marvel Animation, the new 26-episode, half-hour series follows Wolverine as he reunites the X-Men in an attempt to save the world. The adventure begins with two back-to-back episodes Friday, Jan. 23, from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m. (ET). The new series builds on Marvel's rich storylines from the comic book pages and big screen, and will air regularly Fridays at 8:00 p.m. (ET) on Nicktoons Network.

As the newest installation in the franchise, Wolverine and the X-Men continues Marvel's tradition of epic storytelling. This new animated series focuses on the most popular and well-known X-Men -- Wolverine -- and celebrates the unique qualities of the X-Universe: the action, the iconic characters and the storylines.

"Our audience craves action and adventure, so bringing Wolverine and the X-Men to Nicktoons Network was a natural fit," said Keith Dawkins, Nicktoons Network General Manager, Senior Vice President, Nickelodeon Programming Partnerships. "The folks at Marvel are master storytellers, which is why the X-Men franchise has been so hugely successful. We expect this next chapter to really resonate with our audience."

In the premiere episode, "Hindsight, Part 1", it is a year after a mysterious explosion destroyed the Xavier Institute and broke up the weary X-Men. An embittered Wolverine has lost himself on the open road, haunted by the unexplained fate of the missing Professor X and Jean Grey. But his efforts to keep a low profile end when he's brought back into the crosshairs of the Mutant Response Division (MRD) after rescuing a family. Wolverine infiltrates the MRD to liberate the innocent family who was captured for defending him, as well as a dozen captured mutants. Wolverine knows more trouble is on the way, and realizes he needs to enlist the help of the X-Men.

In the second episode, "Hindsight, Part 2", the villains from the Brotherhood fuel the mutant hysteria as Sen. Kelly tries to gather support for his Mutant Registration Act. Meanwhile, Wolverine is finding it difficult to get the X-Men back together. Most of the team is still unaccounted for, and those that Wolverine can find refuse to join the new team. The disillusioned Rogue has even taken up with the Brotherhood. But when the Brotherhood plans to go after Sen. Kelly at a press conference, the conflicted Rogue must decide where her loyalties lie.

In the late 20th century, mankind began to change. Suddenly, teenagers developed unthinkable abilities that science classified as the next stage in human evolution. In response, Professor Charles Xavier created a School for Gifted Youngsters so the young 'mutants' could learn to control their uncanny abilities and live in harmony with the non-mutant members of society. From then on, Xavier's students -- the X-Men -- intervened to protect the peace until a mysterious explosion devastated Xavier's school. Leaderless and without direction, the X-Men disbanded and the man known as Wolverine struck out on his own.

One year later, the once fiercely independent Wolverine must reunite the X-Men to prevent a horrible vision of the future where the X-Men gave up on Xavier's mission and the world fell into chaos. With great tragedy in their past and their future, Wolverine must lead Xavier's disillusioned students against the forces of fate and destiny. Perhaps together Wolverine and the X-Men can steer the course of history away from catastrophe. But no challenge Wolverine has ever faced can prepare him. On top of learning to lead the X-men for the first time, he's charged with trying to prevent a vision of a dark future from coming to pass. If the X-Men are to stay together as a team long enough to save the world, Wolverine will have to set aside his doubts, and the loaner will have to become a leader.

In celebration of the on-air event, fans can visit Nicktoons Network's website, www.areyouamutant.com, which will launch on Tuesday, Jan. 20. Users may have their DNA "scanned" to determine if they have mutant genes and, if so, they can enter the mansion of the Xavier Institute for Gifted Youngsters. In the mansion, they can visit one of four X-Men-hosted rooms or the Common Room, which will feature Instant Replays of the series post on-air premiere, polls, message boards, as well as episode descriptions and characters profiles. The site, updated weekly, will also feature a link to Nick.com' s Game of The Week, "Wolverine and the X-Men: Sentinel Slash", where Wolverine's quest brings him claw to face with a host of deadly robots in a fast-paced, action-packed 2D battlefield where his reflexes and his mutant healing factor will be just as important as muscle. Players control Wolverine to defeat the enemies in each level, and keep Wolverine alive as long as possible.

Additionally, Wolverine and the X-Men video content will be available on TurboNick and via Nickelodeon's wireless platforms. The series will also have a dedicated category in Nick's Video-On-Demand offering beginning Monday, Jan. 19.

If you thought the Wolvie saturation was bad in the comics, just wait until he's all over your tv and movie screens this year.

...It actually doesn't sound half bad, really. I'll have to see the style and the actual writing before I judge for sure.

Also, this needs to be said: STOP OVERWHORING WOLVERINE. I mean, God, he's a decent enough character, but he is not the be-all end-all of the X-Men.

He's not even that good, he's the Punisher with claws.

And he's Canadian so that means he's short, hairy and enjoys alcohol...uhm. Has bad hair? Uhm...shit. How can I not describe myself? Smokes cigars on a regular basis? That's right! We Canadians have no problems with Cuba!

Fuck. I'm Wolverine.

Except the Punisher has zero powers while Wolverine basically can't be killed.

I was more referring to his "bad-ass-anti-hero-best-at-what-he-does" attitude, but the way his healing factor has been exaggerated is also utter shit.

It works for Deadpool because he's funny!

Im going to have to disagree there, but that's likely my distaste for the character/Garth Ennis.

No, that's likely your tastes for things that are good and not the same thing over and over. Unless of course it is Matt Fraction who turned in at least five pretty damn good storylines without repeating himself.

Hm. You think this is up online anywhere? Unlike some lucky bastards, we don't get cable in our dorm rooms and I don't want to spare the time to go and find a TV exclusively for watching it.

Watched it.

If it were drawn in a different style and it weren't so preachy, I could get into this. It has an honestly good premise. It just isn't executed so well.

Also, did not like their take on Kitty and Rogue; both sounded incredibly whiny when they're not.

It looks to me that it's just a more adult animation style then X-Men Evolution was. Just take that cartoon and age the characters and u get this. But that's just my opinion.
