After an explosion at the school, the X-Men went their separate ways. But they must unite once again under the leadership of Wolverine to prevent an inevitable war while also dealing with present problems.
X-Men, still grieving over the death of Phoenix (Jean Grey), are investigating a case of a missing mutant girl in Northern Japan. This leads them to a mysterious virus that turns mutants into monsters. U-Men and the Inner Circle want it.
The Incredible Hulk teams up with Red Hulk, She-Hulk, Skaar, and Rick Jones aka A-Bomb to battle the forces of evil in front of cameras for Rick's web-based series to show the Hulk is more hero than monster.
Logan is asked by his old friend, a cop from Japan, to help him take down Shingen Yashida's crime syndicate and save Mariko, Logan's lost love, from forced marriage arranged by her father Shingen. Yukio, a female assassin, helps him.
Animated series centering on the X-men after the school was attacked by an unknown force and Professor X vanishes. Wolverine tries to bring the X-Men back together to find out what happened. Eventually they find Professor X in a comatose state. But he contacts them from the future where he has awakened. And they have to deal with new challenges.Written by
This is the first series since the original X-Men I like!!!
What has happened to Marvel TV cartoons?? On the DC side, excellent reimaginings of Batman, Superman and the Justice League have been plentiful with so, so many substandard versions of Spiderman and X-Men based on Manga for Generation 'Teen'. The recent 'Next Avengers - Heroes of Tomorrow' was better but again for a younger audience in my opinion.
I don't need to see a bunch of kids reenact adult X-Men situations where there's no risk. This series bodes much better, feeding off the 80s X-Men series. Yes, there are some serious plot problems having Wolverine lead but they're addressed in the right way where many X-Men don't want to follow him.
Fantastic, and well overdue.
