    Default Bigger Impact? XM:TAS, X-Men #1 vol 2 or Fox X-Men based movies and spin-offs

    Simple question, in your opinion, which is more significant to the X-Men brand? The renowned cartoon, having the single biggest selling comic book of all time or the contraversial movies that have lasted almost 2 decades.

    Are you kidding?

    All the annoying "I remember watching the cartoon once and that's the definitive X-Men" people?

    It's the cartoon, no contest.

    the obsession with the cartoon dwarfs the entire movie franchise where the general consensus seems to be "meh"

    there are definitely people who want their funeral to be attended by folks wearing jim lee's banana peels while a 30 second loop of strings plays

    In my opinion the cartoon was what brought the X-Men into the spotlight. It was unquestionably popular, and made many of the characters household names comparable to Superman, Spider-Man, and Batman. But it didn't exactly change anything, it was a fairly accurate reflection of one of the comic's periods but didn't really have any effect on the source material. That's nothing to sneeze at.

    The X-Men film franchise wouldn't exist without the '90s series having brought the characters into the larger public eye. The aesthetic, and narrative changes made for the film series has had a significant effect on the comics. For better or worse.

    That's how I'm looking at the question anyway.

    Continuity, even in a "shared" comics universe is often insignificant if not largely detrimental to the quality of a comic.

    The cartoon. For sure. My little brother and I would wake up religiously to watch it. Every Saturday morning at 10am Central.

    As a fan who came in with the old 6-player side-scrolling arcade game and Chris Claremont & Jim Leeís X-men #1, though, I sure wish Jim hadnít brought back the yellow and blue outfit for Wolverine.

    Cartoon. Especially at a time where comics stores were struggling, and many would go belly up from the investment craze of the early 1990s. The lasting impact was felt for years. I remember comic book stores as late as 2005 with people asking why Jubilee or Gambit wasn't ALWAYS on the main roster, and who this "Kitty Pryde" person was.

    X-TAS Cartoon, undoubtedly. The movies probably wouldn't have even been made without its success.

    When I imagine the characters voices, it’s always the cartoon. Doesn’t matter how many times Jackman played Wolverine, in my head he’s always Cal Dodd.
