Every X-Men Animated Series, Ranked

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has come and gone, and without giving anything away, Patrick Stewart reprising his role as Professor Charles Xavier, the X-commander, Men’s received a standing ovation in theatres around the country. The iconic hover chair, combined with the delicate tones of the original music (officially labelled in the credits as the “X-Men ’97” theme), drove fans worldwide into a nostalgic frenzy. Even more, cause to be pleased is the fact that the figure joins The Illuminati. Naturally, the backlash has fans reminiscing about their greatest moments from the previous X-Men series. This is a ranking of every animated X-Men show ever filmed.

6. X-Men: Pryde of the X-Men

X-Men: Pryde of the X-Men was a one-episode series that aired in 1989 and was narrated by Marvel god Stan Lee. In this case, it was too bad because the show had potential, with cameos from Emma Frost and others. The episode featured an action-packed trip to space to battle Magneto and his wicked Brotherhood.

5. Wolverine and the X-Men

Wolverine and the X-Men, created by Kevin Feige, lasted from 2008 to 2009 and featured a distinct style of X-Men show. Following a pair of films and an animated series that portrayed Scott Summers and Professor X as the X-leaders, Men’s this show put Wolverine in the spotlight. Wolverine was featured in numerous media at the time, notably with the debut of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, therefore the decision did not help the show much. However, there were some positive aspects to the show. Anyone with a basic comprehension of the characters could get straight into the plot and immerse themselves in it, making it simple to follow.

4. X-Men Anime

The X-Men Anime lasted for 12 episodes in 2011, making it more of a limited series than anything else. The X-Men became the centre of attention as they flew to Japan to explore a series of mysteries concerning Armor, a mutant. The tale wasn’t really interesting, but the animation style, scenery, and characters are all so well-drawn that the show is worth seeing.

3. Wolverine

In terms of tone, it’s everything you’d expect a Logan narrative to be: violent and gloomy. Wolverine was another Marvel Anime title that focused solely on the titular mutant and was based on the comic narrative of the same name. In terms of anime, the show, which aired in 2011, was one of the greatest produced by Marvel Anime, which includes titles like Iron Man and Blade. Tonally, the show delivered far more than X-Men Anime and did it without sacrificing looks. Wolverine gave fans the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a fantastic comic book adaptation in an era when Hollywood was known for taking liberties, which continues to this day.

2. X-Men: Evolution

Evolution

The show dealt with various mature topics as it depicted the iconic team as teenagers in high school, as well as the forces of good and evil recruiting teenagers to their respective sides. While there were squabbles between the X-Men and the Brotherhood early on, towards the end of the episode, everyone, including the Acolytes, realised they needed to work together to stop the major threat: En-Sabah-Nur, a.k.a. Apocalypse. During its four-season run, which began in 2000, the show had substance. Fitting in at school, peer pressure, and racism were all subjects that the show’s main viewers might be struggling with in their daily lives, making it more realistic.

1. X-Men: The Animated Series

The Animated Series

The animated series X-Men was fantastic. It featured period-appropriate animation and introduced a slew of new characters. The show had a tone that was different from other Saturday Morning offerings and was akin to series like Transformers: Beast Wars. Everything in The Animated Series was a stride ahead in time. Immediately, the show gave a crushing blow to the viewers with the death of X-team member Morph, only to be brought back by Mr Sinister many years later to betray people he once loved before receiving some atonement. This scene establishes the tone of the programme as well as what the audience can expect, and it may have the greatest impact on Wolverine.

The show simply did everything it set out to do, which is why it will most likely be renewed on Disney+ as part of the House of Mouse’s Marvel selections.
