    Making them operate in an official capacity is basically what Magneto said would happen and validates, if not trumps, Xavier's point of view.
    Interesting point about the MRD(which I also don't like, as it seems to legitimize such means), however, I find WatXM's Magneto's use of false flag attacks to justify his move against humanity to be a huge error. The fact that he, the lord of Genosha, would engineer attacks against his own people makes him lose all of his noble freedom fighter traits from Claremont(and TAS), and casts him more in the vein of Ultimate Magnetos's truly vile villain.

    Hmm, the Dani we saw train in the Danger Room with the X-Men(a large part of the episode), was she or wasn't she a figment of imagination/a psionic apparition?

    I'm just happy Thunderbird is on a show and he's the leader. So I can't complain.
    We wouldn't have gotten Warpath without John dying in their second mission.

    And see, you've still got him running around in this show.

    That's basically what I said, which is petty good for only seeing it once forever ago.

    In the show, the real Dani didn't come to the Institute until the very end of the show when they rescue her from the cave. Everything else was part of the dream Kitty had.

Things like adoption, respectability politics, transparency, the meaning of chosen family, immigration, incarceration, religion, they all exist in some degree in the other shows to some degree, but TAS seemed to be particularly cognizant and almost anticipating them as side effects to or intersections with race and class. Unlike the other two shows, TAS seemed to have a great deal of foresight.
    quality post, Cyke fans know whats up and are consistently just right.
    Cyclops was right

    It's one thing to be pragmatic and have an "us vs. them" mentality when you're staring down the barrel of extinction like in the post-House of M comics, but when total annihilation isn't likely, I prefer a more balanced approach to the depiction of human nature.

    That could just be me, though.
    I echo both of these statements. Establishing and carrying the tension between the two view points, buoys the plot and allows for the story to explore different aspects of the opposing ideologies. I think it goes like this, or it should- if the X-men do nothing, or cease to exist... Magneto's nightmare comes true or the nightmare that is a future ruled by Magneto comes true.
    Cyclops was right

    Best
    1. X-Men (TAS)
    2. Evolution
    3. Wolverine and the X-Men

    Personal Preference
    1. Evolution
    2. X-Men (TAS)
    3. Wolverine and the X-Men

    TAS was brilliantly adapted, only Batman was as good. Personally preferred Evolution as it appealed to my own teen angst.

    Good choices. I also liked:

    - The story arc with Rogue joining the X-Men was pretty well done for the "still finding its feet" first season.

    - Nightcrawler and Shadowcat needing to deal with a Weapon X-controlled Wolverine (and Sabretooth) with no backup.

    - The scene in that Christmas show were Rogue and Cyclops are wondering if the angel they're looking for could be the real deal or not. (the scene with Magento and Angel in that church also worked really well).

    - Anything involving Wolverine protecting the kids was usually really good.

    The finale showing what would happen in the future.

    - For sheer humor, I think the funniest bit was in the second X-23 show; Wolverine and X-23 are in the woods fleeing enemies. X-23 is complaining that Wolverine's nasty injuries aren't healing fast enough and slowing them down. Wolverine retorts something to the effect of: "Give me a break. I fell out of a plane." You can only get that kind of understatement with superheroes.
    Doctor Strange: "You are the right person to replace Logan."
    X-23: "I know there are people who disapprove... Guys on the Internet mainly."

    TAS nailed the soul of what makes the X-men great.

    That's pretty much where it starts and stops for me.
