  • Best X Men Animation

    This show is all around great,from the characters to the of the characters have great backstories and are developed perfectly. Jean Grey, Nightcrawler and Kitty are my favorite characters. The episodes are great with exciting stories and a good balance of action and humor. Definitely recommend watching if you are an X Men fan.
  • Love this show!

    I've only seen 2 eps of this so far, but I adore it! Kitty is so cute! <3
  • Why do people hate show?

    It's a "reimagining" not a remake or reboot. The main premise of X-Men is that they are misunderstood characters trying to fit into normal society. most high schoolers. All the characters were given good back stories and many of them had actual development.

    Stop comparing it to the 90's show, the movies, or the comics. It is a stand alone show targeted to teens and younger audiences. Objectively X-Men: Evolution was a pretty solid show that still holds up.

  • A good idea of a reboot ruined by a bad premise

    The only things good about X-men Evolution is the animation, voice-acting and character development. The thing that ruins the show is the premise. Since it was released after Bryan Singer's first X-Men movie, it would have meant the series would just be like the movie as Batman TAS was to Tim Burton's Batman movies. This show was butchered by de-aging characters. The X-Men are now teens attending High School. Srsly, High School. Than what's the use of them going to Xavier's institute if they get to go too Public High School anyway.moreless
  • Pretty decent start (I'm used to early 90s one)

    3 ep (12, 14) LIBRARY
