Perhaps we all need to stay on topic.

ReadyAndWilling, you have little room for complaint given your past performance, so please leave the accusations of trolling to the moderators for evaluation.

Mr. Adventure, Reverend, Silvercrest and anyone else concerned about Ready's posting ... you likewise need to stick to the topic. If you are concerned about anyone's posting tactics simply notify the moderators and WE will handle it. Capiche?

Anyway, I never saw this version. Maybe at some point I'll go back and check it out. I think the premise, which placed Wolverine at front and center, kind of bothered me, but I don't know if the actual show followed closely that premise (irony, I'm judging it by its title ).
It varied. Some of its episodes were very Wolverine-centric, while others (probably the majority) were much more team-driven and dealing with more general X-Men story elements like the "Days of Future Past" future, Magneto's mutant enclave on Genosha, and the like. So the title was pretty accurate in that sense: It was a combination of a Wolverine show and an X-Men show.

Re: Wolverine and the X-Men: Why was it cancelled?

The title turned me off instantly so I only watched a few episodes. In general I didn't care for a lot of the central premise, especially turning Wolverine into an almost-Cyclops figure and vice-versa. It did have Kurt and Kitty, so that's a point in its favor, but in general for me it goes below the 90s show and Evo.

Mea culpa; I focused too hard on the thread title. The topic is fine. Alidar Jarok makes a good point.

Re: Wolverine and the X-Men: Why was it cancelled?

I really liked WATX. Wish it would have lasted longer.

It was a fun take on X-Men continuity. Definitely worth checking out if you're an X-Men fan. Don't let the name fool you. Lots of X-Men get lots of chances to shine. Nightcrawler was awesome.

If you're not familiar with the show but you were thinking of watching it, try to avoid spoilers. There are some pretty cool twists throughout the season.

I can't believe there hasn't been a straight up non "twist on it" X-Men cartoon since the early 1990s Let's get on that, people!!!

Re: Wolverine and the X-Men: Why was it cancelled?

Wasn't Wolverine and the X-men a casualty of Marvel getting its television rights back? When Marvel was able to negotiate back all of their television rights, shows produced by other studios were smothered and killed; Marvel wanted their cartoons to only be produced by Disney.

It's the same thing that killed Spectacular Spider-man and Iron Man: Armored Adventures (though Iron Man season 2 was already in production at the time the change happened, so it managed to finish that out season).

As for the future, Marvel Animation has been hinting lately in artwork at cons that there may be a Wolverine toon in the future (in addition to a Guardians of the Galaxy toon). Of course, I'm not too fond of the current Marvel Animation output from Jeph Loeb; so I'm not sure that's something to cheer. Avengers Assemble I can stomach; just as long as it's not like Ultimate Spider-man and Agents of S.M.A.S.H.

Re: Wolverine and the X-Men: Why was it cancelled?

It sounds like Hulk and Agents of SMASH is cancelled with only two episodes left to air in the next few weeks. I won't particularly miss it

It is unfortunate that the current Marvel cartoons are being played so kiddie.

Yeah, it's the best version of Nightcrawler we've had in animation. It also features the only animated version of Gambit whose voice I didn't find annoying (since they cast Phil LaMarr in the role).

Re: Wolverine and the X-Men: Why was it cancelled?

It's a great show! And the way it's animated and acted almost makes it feel like a re-imagined sequel to the 90s FOX cartoon. The title makes sense given Wolverine's role in the show, but the show is hardly all about him. It would have been awesome to see this show continue.

Hmm? I don't see that at all. The design and animation style were much closer to X-Men Evolution than to the '90s show, and in fact the show had a number of key creative people in common with XME. At first, there were a lot of people wondering if it was a stealth sequel to XME, although it soon enough became clear that the realities weren't compatible.

Actually, they did remove the link stating it was cancelled, but it still doesn't list any second season being planned.
