  • This second episode of Wolverine and the X-Men, really shows what this series is capable of

    The second episode of Wolverine and the X-Men, was much better than the first. Wolverine and Beast are back. As well as Rogue, Shadowcat and Iceman, and the introduction of the Brotherhood of Mutants and Angel. The episode is well written and features much more action than the first. I loved the addition of Domino into the Brotherhood, as she has never really had much of a role in any X-Men adaptation (the biggest being a cameo in the original series), but I'm so glad she has a bigger role in this series. I'm also glad that the Brotherhood is depicted as mutant terrorists in this series. I didn't like how in Evolution they weren't. I'm also pleased with the Brotherhood's roster in this series. Quicksilver, Domino, Blob, Toad and Avalanche, as well as Rogue, what else do you need. This episode really shows what this series is capable of. If you watch this series, you will be hooked until the end.moreless
  • Hindsight, Part 1, more or less, laid the foundation for the show, especially its title character but Part 2 really buckled us in more along the lines of X-Men mythos.

    I'm impressed. While part 1 was almost an solo animated series for Wolverine, part 2 got really buckled us in, revealing alot about Rogue, the whole humans vs. mutants thing.

    When Rogue was around this age in the comics, she was one of the worst villains around, despised and feared by both the Avengers and the X-Men. It's almost exciting that they're really delving into this. That being said, the good girl gone bad transformation was interesting to watch. The Brotherhood's joyride through town reminded me what juvenile deliquents do. The Brotherhood/Rogue scenes were the best in this episode.

    I could do without Toad's dreadlocks but I actually liked the look of the Brotherhood. Though I would rather have Pyro, Mystique or Destiny in the group, Domino is a good addition. Wish I could just see some of her luck powers. As for Kelly and Worthington, Jr, they're are actually pretty good villains. The villains in this show are promising. I just can't wait for Magneto, Mystique, Sabertooth, Juggernaut and possibly Emma Frost.

    Another good note was Angel. He actually seems like an interesting character and not a total waste of space. Instead of being on the frontlines, he's more of a behind-the-scenes kind of guy, funding and providing the X-Men with information.

    The only reason this episode didn't get a solid 7 or even an 8 was, ironically because of Wolverine and the X-Men. The scenes depicting Wolverine and Beast getting the team back together were rushed. They could've spend more time detailing what Kitty, Peter and Bobby were doing for the last year and what they were doing before they rejoined. They attempted to do something for Bobby and I liked what they did. But as for Kitty, she was on her way to Genosha for some unknown reason. As soon as Logan showed up, she just jumped off the boat and into the helicopter without a word to anybody.

    I know she wanted to get back.

    I know it was a nod to the fact that in the comics, her father lived in Genosha before it got wasted.

    But it was way too rushed. I don't understand why they couldn't show Colossus working on the family farm in Russia. They already showed why Cyke, Rogue, and Angel couldn't rejoin. Why didn't they do it for Pete?!? It was just all too inconsistent for me.

    The action scene with the MRD was weak but I have to admit that I was kinda surprised when Rogue turned out to be a double agent. I wonder where they go from here. I can't wait for part 3.moreless
  • The Brotherhood debuts and plenty of character arcs begin

    You know, there's no point moaning about how Wolverine has been made the leader of the team. I don't like it either, but at least they tell you up front in the title alone, what their intentions are, so why waste your breath if you'll whine about the same thing every week. Get over it or don't watch. For better or worse, this is what it's going to be.

    So I somewhat appreciated the reference in show from characters acknowledging that they don't like the idea either.

    The potential is definitely here, and the production value is stellar. Let's hope they strike the right balance and deliver something better than any X-Men cartoon that's come before.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (22)

    • Angel: Logan, you saved a man who hates you. That is exactly what Charles Xavier would have done.

    • Domino: It's time we stop being victims. It's time we unite!

    • Rogue: Don't compare yourself to me. You're a criminal. You're making it hard for all of us.
      Domino: It was hard long before we got involved. We're not the ones who picked this fight, Rogue. We're just standing up for ourselves, and for those who can't fight back.
      Rogue: By terrorizing the city?
      Domino: By refusing to back down.

    • Domino: (To Rogue) Nice job.
      Quicksilver: Yeah, in one fell swoop you set up the X-Men and proved your loyalty to the Brotherhood. Welcome aboard.

    • Quicksilver: How's your trigger finger?
      Domino: Itchin'.

    • Angel: (About Senator Kelly's press conference) Why is he going forward with this?
      Warren Worthington II: He knows this press conference is vital.
      Angel: You didn't tell him about the Brotherhood, did you?
      Warren Worhtington II: Me and my team can protect him... and if he's attacked while on national television, the registration act is all but guaranteed.
      Angel: You're using him as bait!

    • Beast: Let's see if we can't find uniforms that aren't scorched, or... laser-burned.

    • Iceman: Alright, the X-Men are back!
      Wolverine: Well, kind of. It's just us.
      Iceman: Oh... What about Kitty? Couldn't you catch her before she left?
      Wolverine: You know where she is?
      Iceman: She told me she's heading to Genosha. Her ship left this morning.

    • Wolverine: (To Mr. and Mrs. Drake) Your son's a mutant... deal with it.

    • Beast: So, right now the X-Men consists of you, me... and a stole M.R.D. helicopter.

    • Warren Worthington II: What do you want from me?
      Quicksilver: You've got Kelly's ear, we want the rest of him. Where is he?

    • Rogue: What are you doing?
      Avalanche: Get your hands off of me, X-Man!
      Rogue: Why do you have to destroy his home?
      Quicksilver: Because when the Brotherhood leaves a message, it ain't a note on the door.

    • Wolverine: (To Cyclops) So without Jean there's no one worth fighting for?

    • Rogue: (After absorbing Toad's power) Ugh, what have you been eating, bugs?

    • Senator Kelly: This is a disaster, Warren. We can not afford to lose support of the registration act.
      Warren Worthington II: I know. Here's my suggestion- make an announcement that the "Prowler" program has been shut down... permanently.
      Senator Kelly: Why?
      Warren Worthington II: Because then you can put the focus back where you need it, on the Brotherhood. Trust me, it won't be long before those thugs remind everyone why registering mutants is a good idea.

    • Beast: (About Rogue) She just needs a little time.
      Wolverine: Yeah, maybe... but she's right, Hank. No one's comin' back if I'm in charge.

    • Wolverine: I want you to come back.
      Rogue: I'm not going to let you abandon me again. Your problem is you can't stay in one place, Logan. And no one can follow a leader who's never there.

    • Wolverine: Rogue, I know you came to this rally because you hate what's going on...
      Rogue: So?
      Wolverine: So, together we can do something about it. Just come back to the X-Men and...
      Rogue: Forget it.
      Wolverine: Why?
      Rogue: The reason you don't know is exactly the reason why.

    • Beast: Are you alright?
      Angel: Great, now that I see the X-Men are back together.
      Beast: Oh, well...
      Rogue: We're not!
      Beast: We're still, kind of... sorting that out.

    • Senator Kelly: Requiring mutants to register their abilities is just our first line of defense. They're waging war on us, people. It's time we fight back with this, the Sentinel Prowler.

    • Senator Kelly: So, the Brotherhood is now threatening me. Am I scared? Yes, as you should be because mutants are a danger to us all.

    • Quicksilver: Give Senator Kelly a little message from the Brotherhood- There's no stopping the mutants! And we're coming for him next...
