Depending on how old you are, Fox’s X-Men: The Animated Series was your comic book bible during the ‘90s. The show premiered on Fox as part of their Fox Kids Saturday morning lineup, you know back when there were cartoons on Saturday mornings. The show gave the most accurate-to-the-comics stories from any adaptations that have come from comic books during that time, and probably since then. The show did an exceptional job capturing the feel of the comics during the Jim Lee era. The show covered all sorts of hugely popular stories from the comics including Days of Future Past, Dark Phoenix, Genosha, Mojovision, Weapon X, The Phalanx, and much more. Needless to say, before superhero films exponentially grew, this was the best comic book adaptation we had. I dare you not to hum the theme song!
With the upcoming release of X-Men: Apocalypse, Screen Junkies decided to give X-Men: The Animated Series the “Honest Trailer” treatment. After all, Apocalypse was a great bad guy from the cartoon. Take a look at the “Honest Trailer,” boy is it golden!
Makes you think twice about all the times Jean Grey fainted, huh?
