    • Why do people hate show?

      9.0
      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

      3.5
      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

    • My review about this show

      10
      This series has great sound mixing in 2000 and sound editing in 2002
    • It is the X-Men universe totally expanded into a show that takes their lives and puts them in a teenage setting.

      10
      I would do anything to bring this show back. I love it with all of my heart because it is the best show around. It is a shame that it was cancelled and if it was brought back for a 5th season I would be even more of a faithful watcher.
