An enjoyable series for the die-hard X-Men Fans...
It's been a few years since the last X-Men animated franchise. It's a bit hard to follow in the footsteps of the original series, and these days, Marvel has improved their quality of work (compare "Daredevil" & "Elektra" to "Ironman" and "The Incredible Hulk"). The only word to describe the series, so far is..."WOW". The animation is quite spectacular and they've integrated a lot of the original characters, people you only had a glimpse of in "X-Men: Evolution", so that the series becomes fun to the people who have been X-Men fans for most of their lives. Even to those who aren't aware of the storyline can have a lot of fun watching this series. The plot develops well, leaves you hanging onto your seat wondering, "Oh Lord, what now!". The characters are reminiscent of the original series, like the voicing and such - you can actually HEAR the difference in their accents and speech patterns. One of the best parts is that because of "X-Men: Evolution" and the live action movies, and we have forgotten that the X-Men were full, mature people, this series puts things back in perspective. They're adults, fully developed in their powers and thrust into our world. You're there, watching and anticipating the next characters to make their appearance. My advice? "You will be surprised." Take a joyride, immerse yourself all over again in the saga, keep the original storyline in the back of your head, but leave your mind open and clear. Because the way this series has started, I don't think anything is impossible....
