Wolverine and the X-Men — A NEW ANIMATED SERIES!

Hey Gang! Good news for X-Men fans!

The first, official trailer for Marvel’s upcoming animated series, “Wolverine and the X-Men,” is here! Packed with more mutants than you can shake a stick at, check out what’s in store for a world in which Professor X has been taken out and Wolverine must lead the X-Men into a very uncertain and dangerous future!

“Wolverine and the X-Men” begins as an explosive event shatters the lives of the X-Men and takes away their mentor, Professor X. The beaten heroes, including Beast, Storm, Cyclops and Nightcrawler, walk away from it all but then they are given a rare glimpse into the future, where they see a world in utter ruin…ruled by giant destructive robots. They discover the world has spiraled out of control because the X-Men have given up. So now the most legendary of all X-Men, Wolverine, must take the lead on the ultimate mission—to prevent the world’s destruction—while fending off enemies Magneto and The Brotherhood.

This series looks like it’s going to be tons of fun, with the characters all looking pretty much the way they should. Storm looks lovely, and Angel — yumm yumm YUMMY! LOL!

Check out Marvel.com for the wicked trailer. It’s quite x-citing! :)

All the best,
Patrick XOXO

  1. Yeah the show does look promising. It actually looks like a follow up to X-Men: Evolution…the animation is very similar…I will give it a shot…except I dunno about Wolverine ‘taking charge’ and being a leader…it just isn’t his thing, not when BOTH field leaders for the X-Men are present (Cyclops and Storm)..but we’ll see. Notice how Jean is absent? She gets taken out along with the Professor. LOVE te banner by the way!! Lets see more of him!

  2. Vaughn Michael says

    Angel is hot? psh make room for that Iceman hottie heheh :P
    Man I haven’t been this excited about X-men since the first movie came out.
    I’m really going to get into this show I can tell, and Mojo is in it also even better!

  3. Rarutos says

    Oh my! A new X-Men animated series! :o

    I hope Jean Grey is in it, she’s my absolute favorite character. But she often ends up dead or as Phoenix. :[ Hehe, I’ve watched X-men animated serieses since I was little, I might see this one! Doubt it though, since school is so much work! Thanks for the heads-up Patrick! *heart*


  4. Charlie MJR says

    Wow this does look juicy, I loved x-men evolution, and this looks like the same kind of animation.

    Wolvie is always my favourite, I a special place in my heart for him, given my wolverine models and posters strung up of him.

    But even more so, I’m really happy to see Beast, firstly because I’ve loved Hank as long as I’ve enjoyed x-men, but also because I see they haven’t animated him as that really regrettable cat like form he’s been changed into in recent x-men comics.
    I never forgave marvel for doing that, but as least it shows that most other marvel artists don’t follow that choice and kept him as the big, blue furry ape we all love.

    This series looks a lot darker then evolution, and seems to really stem from the way the story works in the comics, or the older x-men series from the 90s. I looks great.

  5. I’m against the absence of Jean too. I know they kept her out to coincide with the comic universe, but I’m against it there too.

    They keep her out because Claremont wanted to keep her dead after Dark Phoenix. He has been noted as saying (numerous times) that he thinks bringing her back to life was the biggest mistake of the X-Men universe.

    But my argument to that is what about those of us who grew up reading the series in the 80’s and 90’s with alive Jean? I grew up with Jean being the mother of the X-Men– the main X-girl. We don’t mind that she was brought back to life cuz not only did it make for an awesome storyline (Madelyne / Inferno) but we were just used to her being there. PLUS– I really hate that Emma is now the new main X-girl. She’s essentially taken over what each of the other X-girls were. She’s tough (Psylocke), a leader (Storm), the vamp (Rogue), and the motherly one (Jean.)

    I mean, I’ll watch it, cuz it’s X-Men.

  6. yo JC..u forgot that Emma is also annoying, taking over for Kitty pryde(glad she is dead)

  7. Charlie MJR says

    JC I also agree with you.
    you know its a common fact with comic book creators how ideal differ from one to another, and how this seriously cocks up the characters storys.

    I also grew up first loving x-men in the 90s, and where Jean was a major figure in the team. I always liked her character, and after knowing she was killed as the phoenix and brought back, it seemed to make sense to me given how she was a much loved character.

    It often amazes me how little notice these writers and comic creator give to the actual fans themselves.
    When in the recent development with the x-mens ‘secondary mutation’, where Beast was turned into a cat like version of himself, marvel completely ignored what Beast fans said about hating it, since the team at the time thought they had done the right thing.

    At least with our dear Patrick, he’s a very down to earth creator who lets people talk on his thread here about what they love about his work, not like many other comic creators.

  8. Looks great!

  9. Hey there Rdot…

    Thanks so much for stopping by! I agree with a lot of your points about the look of this new series so far… especially the one about Wolverine taking charge. That so makes no sense, and is such a marketing ploy to get more viewers. We all know that Wolverine has a huge following, but I sort of feel that by making him into the leader, it betrays a lot of his personality. Ah well, we’ll just have to wait and see I guess. Maybe they’ll pull it off nicely!

    And thanks for the comment about the banner! Much appreciated! :oD

    Hugz + kisses,
    Patrick XOXO

  10. Hey Vaughn Michael…

    Thanks for the comment, my friend. Yeah, I love MOJO too. The fact that he will be in the series makes me want to watch it even more. He’s such a great, nutty villain. And where there is Mojo, there is SPIRAL!!!! And she freakin’ ROCKS! Bring it on, I say!

    Much love to ya!
    Patrick XOXO

  11. Hey there Rarutos…

    Well, if you do get the opportunity to tune in, I think it might be worth it. The animation looks really great and the characters all look the way they should — more or less…

    As for Jean, she’s in the beginning of the preview, but seems to vanish right away. Wonder what that’s all about. Guess we;’ll just have to watch!

    Hugz + Kisses,
    Patrick XOXOX

  12. Hey Charlie…

    Great to hear from you, my friend. Yes I agree, the series looks wonderful and edgier than the previous X-Men cartoons. Ought to be very good indeed!

    As for Beast, i too HATE the new cat-like version of him in the comics. He’s hideous!!! The classic is so much better. it’s great that they stuck with that look for this series. i just hope they don’t eventually morph him… that would tank!

    And hey, thanks for the kind words you said about little ol’ me in your second comment. That was very sweet! :oD

    Much love to ya!
    Patrick XOXO

  13. Hey JC…

    Always a pleasure to hear from ya, dude! Yes. Emma Frost is a plague upon this Earth and she should be taken out by all the other X-Chicks who’ve had their thunder stolen by her over the past few years. First she’s a grade-A skank, and a total cow. I wish Storm would do everyone a favor and just fry her with a bolt of lightning already! And that Cyclops has fallen for her. Man. I’ve always hated the guy, but this just seems like such a betrayal of Jean Grey. UGH! It’s mind boggling!

    I’ll be very curious to see if Jean eventually makes it back into the new series… or Storm for that matter, who seems present at first and then annoyingly absent after that.

    Thanks again for the great comment.
    Much love to ya!

  14. Hey there Curio…

    I couldn’t agree more. The series does look really great. I hope it lives up to expectations!

    Thanks for stopping by!
    Hugz + kisses,
    Patrick XOXO

  15. hey Patrick :)
    ok, x-men is my major fav from marvel, they rock…i am actually really really lookin forward to seeing how this turns out….
    tho its a shame that colossus couldnt be gay like he is in the ultimate series :(
    gotta love a big strong russian :P

  16. Hey Link…

    Yeah, a Gay Colossus in the cartoon would have been cool… but it was not likely to happen seeing as how it’s a mainstream cartoon. Ah well… Thanks for stopping by!

    Hugz + kisses,

  17. Want where have sex book comics the beast x-men like gay dick bottom
