Wolverine and the X-Men (2008)

   Today, in the Quantum Cave, we are screening the first few episodes of Wolverine and the X-Men. This is a show that was pulled off of the air far before its time. Well animated, and perfectly plotted, the series took a new spin on an old favorite. It wasn’t a continuation of X-Men: The Animated Series, nor was it related to X-Men: Evolution. The only  thing unchanged between this iteration and the previous, Evolution, was the return of Meghan Black as the voice of Rouge. Along with that link to a previous show came the voice of Steven Blum, as Logan, to firmly anchor us into this new reality for the team. His voice gives the show a solid amount of gravitas from the very beginning.

   I won’t get through the entire series today, we have a Back to the Future trilogy marathon planned, so I’ll jump forward and praise the finale. The show ended on such a strong note that it’s even more unfortunate that we didn’t get a second season. No spoilers if you haven’t seen it, but a nod and wink to those who did. Like Young Justice, this one deserves another shot.

Spider-Man is getting back to his roots in a new animated TV series.
   "Spider-Man is the biggest action hero in the world. He is an iconic 
character whose duality  makes him both relatable and  aspirational for 
the  Disney  XD  audience,"  says  Marc Buhaj,  senior vice president, 
programming and general manager for Disney XD.     He promises "a fresh 
take on a beloved classic that will engage both new and existing Spidey 
fans with its compelling drama, exciting action and the signature sense
