X-Men: Days of Future Past Movie Compared to the Animated Version From 1993

CB: While this weekend’s feature film adaptation of Chris Claremont and John Byrne’s X-Men: Days of Future Past is expected to gross more than $100 million domestically and be one of (if not the) biggest opening in the history of the X-Men film franchise, it isn’t the first time the classic ’80s story has been adapted.
No, a version of “Days of Future Past” appeared on the fan-favorite ’90s X-Men animated series, which aired on Fox Kids’ Saturday morning lineup from 1992-1997, and was released on VHS as a double feature with ”The Night of the Sentinels.”

Anyone else miss Wolverines costume?

I gotta admit I have never been a fan of the yellow and blue costume, but I did like his brown and tan one as well as his black and gray costume from X-Force.

"Wolverine and the X-men" had a similar story, too. Great show; almost had an "Age of Apocalypse" story, but it got canned. Truly great superhero cartoons never last anymore.

Can't beat the 90s when it comes to superhero cartoons that actually lasted.
X-Men animated series, Superman:tas, Batman:tas, etc.

I didnt care for superman but i liked the rest.Justice League was superior to the Superman series IMO.

Arcee1511d ago

Especially when it made the switch to Justice League Unlimited. Then it really flourished.

All except for the last season. The hawkman story, the center of the earth, supergirl joining Brainiac #?? in the future (That doesn't sound like a trap at all; great call by Green Lantern. lol), the finale with such little emotion or focus...

Aside from that, yeah, JL/JLU was pretty great. Can't say that I favor it over Superman:tas, though; the variety was nice, but the lack of focus was disappointing at times.

Compare it to the source material instead. I like the X Men movies as movies. Just they are sometimes too removed from the material they are basing their stories on so I don't think of them as X Men movies. Just movies. Great superhero movies.
