Comic Book TV shows are a mixed bag to say the least. Take the predecessor X-Men cartoons as examples, I enjoy the original X-Men cartoon made in 1992 and X-Men: Evolution gave birth to X23 but besides that I don't remember being too impressed with what I saw. Then we have this.
When I was 12 the world of comics opened up before my eyes and I fell in love with the genre, particularly Marvel. At the time that happened, this little show graced the small screen and what a show it was. The plot lines were engaging even today I can still feel excited when I watch the series finale. The writing is also as good as a cartoon gets. Consistently leaving a viewer on edge.
My complaints about the show is that it was too short, I want just one more season or at least an animated movie (If they made it one of their good ones like Dr. Strange, I'd be happy; Wolverine & The X-Men: Age Of Apocalypse). I would have also liked it if they explained Professor X talking to Wolverine from 20 years into the future.
Overall this is a highly entertaining show despite its short run time. I think anyone who is a fan of the X-Men movies, X-Men comic books well X-Men anything would enjoy this particular show. I know I did.
