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.

One of the best shows ever
16 September 2012 | by ydawg-478-917558See all my reviews

First of all let me say that I am not a comic nerd, I maybe owned a couple through my whole life (wolverine was my fav and probably because of this show). I have never liked other superhero shows (another critic said he liked the batman cartoon but that show blew, maybe i just didn't like the cartoon style). Basically what I am trying to say is that I am not a superhero guy but this show might be the best cartoon ever ...

You know those shows/movies you loved as a kid then re-watch as an adult and they just seem corny and/or stupid, boring, childish or just plain lame? (i remember loving "labrynth" the movie as a kid, re watched and realized its just a long and boring David bowie music video). I recently got all 5 seasons of X-men for my kids to watch because I remember absolutely loving it watching it new as a kid myself, it was my most anticipated cartoon (besides the simpsons) and I thought the kids would enjoy it...

the theme music gave me butterflies, so lets start there. What a theme song !!! )best ever maybe), so good I can't believe it brought out emotion in me and that is rare. The video for the intro is pretty cool too, love that explosion.

Now on to the show, a lot of reviews here hit it on the nose. The show is so complex and the characters are real. The opening scene of jubilee with her foster parents, man !!! TV shows still don't have the balls to put on content that real.

Gambit hitting on the cashier, man !!! so good.

The characters make jokes that are funny.

They get in each others faces.

The girls are more loving and the guys are cold.

OK i could go on and on so lets just finish by saying watch the damn show and lets never forget it. shows like this don't come along every day and i hope people enjoy it for a long time.

OK i feel like i should throw a couple negatives in just so i don't seem to biased (remember i am not a comic geek so i cant talk about comic book accuracy) just from the first episode though ...

1. I don't like how gambit is just waltzing around the mall in his costume, storm and rogue were both in plain clothes though so i don't know why gambit had to be rocking his outfit?

2. The giant robot is hiding behind a tree as jubilee walks by going to her parents house to check on them ... please.

OK thats about it for now

um fav character has gotta be gambit, love the accents

this show embraces diversity but not in a captain planet kind of way

alright i am out

thanks
