Wolverine and The X-Men

Hrmm, another new X-Men cartoon, but this one from a very different perspective. The telepaths (Professor X and Jean Grey) have all vanished, the X-Men disband, and Wolverine has to put the team back together while keeping them on the run from what looks to be a very agressive new round of anti-mutant sanctions.

The animation style looks nearly-exactly like X-Men: Evolution, though the voice cast looks to be completely different, which isn’t bad. No idea if this is supposed to be a follow-on series to X-Men: Evolution, either. I highly doubt it’s the same universe/timeline, though.

I’m really not keen on the idea of hem turning Cyclops all emo/depressed (one the stupidest things X-Men: The Last Stand ever did) or the idea of making Rogue evil. Unfortunately, like many have said, Cyke HAS to be all depressed and unwilling to fight for Wolvie to have any reason to be the leader, and thus the focal point of the show. I suppose we’ll see how it goes. Might be good. Probably would be an excellent DVD to own, especially if they make it an ongoing serial storyline like it appears to be.

On the other hand, the Iron Man movie trailer, which hopefully you saw during the Super Bowl, looks freaking FANTASTIC. Can’t wait for that film.

Ain’t seen it yet? Go here!

    The way I see it, Rouge’s ever-piling list of insecurities developed a need for Professor Xavier and Jean Gray. In multiple universes the idea was explored that the Professor needed to enter Rouge’s subconscious in order to bolster her own personality as the dominant one instead of the countless she has absorbed through her battles. A constant fear from this event is that her mind may loose that place of dominance and the war to remain above the countless screaming voices in her head would carry on- now completely out of the Professors supervision. So no Xavier means if this horrible event does happen Rouge is screwed but to add to that Jean Grey is gone, so the only other Omega-level psychic Rouge would trust with such a delicate procedure is gone too. With that out there now it’s either a matter of time before all of the personality changing or conscious loosing events happen. On top of that this is obviously a blow against the X-Men so with them weakened and the new Mutant Sanctions raining down Rouge feels like a real war is inevitable so she might as well join the stronger side- The Brotherhood.
