Re: Wolverine And The X-Men - anyone watching?

Having seen the whole thing, it's a pretty good show, including offering easily the best other media interpretations of several characters (Nightcrawler and Scarlet Witch, most notably), as well as good intros to others who haven't been animated much before (Emma Frost). There's a strong handle on X-Men comics history. The weaker parts tend to relate to the idea of pushing Wolverine as the main character/leader, a premise which actually offers a lot of interesting story possibilities, but in practice not a huge amount is done with it (and this show's version of Cyclops is really bad; he and several other members of the main cast don't have a huge amount to do).
