Storyline

In the Marvel Comics universe, mutants, people with genetically endowed superpowers, are a persecuted by a hateful and fearful populous. One shelter from this is Professor Xavier's Academy for Gifted Children. But the school has a secret function as a training centre for mutants to control their abilities so they can function in regular society. It also serves as a secret headquarters of a superhero team, called the X-Men formed both to be a positive example of mutants and as an opposing force against those mutants who seek to force the world to kneel to their perceived superiority. This series recounts their adventures as they struggle to make the world accept them, while battling villains like Magneto, Apocalypse and the genocidal robots known as the Sentinels.

definitely flawed, but a good, solid effort
6 June 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

I remember when X-men first came out. I lived in a boarding high school that only had one tv per floor in the dorms. On the great X-men premiere saturday that we had been anticipating for so long, my buddies crowded into the tv room.

There was some dork who wanted to watch Looney Tunes, but we took care of him. (Looney Tunes is on... what? 25 hrs per day???) Then the broadcast was screwed up: there was no sound. I don't know if FOX screwed up or if the local affiliate screwed up. So we had to watch the X-men jumping around and beating up bad guys like mimes. We just sorta guessed what they were saying. Still, we were glued to the set for the entire half hour. I think the sound came back for maybe the last 2 minutes.

And then? Well... a lot of us hated it. We didn't like the way it was drawn. We didn't like the animation. We didn't like the lineup that they used. The plot. The costumes. The complaints went on and on... We felt sorta betrayed.

BUT, we watched it again next week. And the next. And the next, and so on and so forth. Every week, there was a group of 10-20 guys huddled in that common room watching X-men.

So now, nearly 10 years later... I MISS that freakin' show. Especially in the face of the garbage that networks have been dishing out in the kids-entertainment genre. Power Rangers? VR Troopers? What is this madness? And now, we have that EXTREME version of X-men... "X-men Evolution," where they are all young and hip. Cowabunga, DUDE!

Sure, X-men 1992 had sloppy animation. Sure, the plot was compromised compared to the comic books. Sure, Batman was clearly a superior show. But nevertheless, X-men 1992 was able to retain "most" key ingredients of the X-men while delivering a highly entertaining action cartoon. For that, I salute the creators (except for the last 6 episodes, which were made by Saban and were appallingly bad).
