    It'd only be of interest of me if they were to bring in a lot of more recent material into the mix.

    I'm not saying you need to put Goldballs on the team... but, maybe I am saying they'd need to put Goldballs on the team.

    But X-Men TAS brought about One Man's Worth, Legacy Virus, Phoenix and Dark Phoenix, Phalanx Covenant, and Savage Land with very minor changes.
    Not sure I see the advantage here.

    Part of the reason the X-Men series worked is seeing the comics come to animated life.

    And that's the part that seems to have aged the worst about it.

    Different times...As a broke ass 7 yo kid when the show started in the peak of the collectors booming bubble where comics were expensive and hard to find I loved how it was so much like the comic continuity. The internet/search engines didnít exist as it is today back in 92-96.

    I love the show but hope it does not return, the animation has aged but the stories havenít.

    Fair enough, I can understand that, seeing as I tend to seek out Spider-Man material that has parallels to the movies I was introduced with. Still, I have found that better adaptations of stuff like this tend to be the ones that get the spirit of the franchise and the characters right, but tell new stories with the building blocks.

    No, but they should bring back X-Men Evolution which let's be honest was way better.

    Something is planned. We've just seen some art showing various Marvel characters, including Wolverine, Cyclops and Storm, with the three Disney XD cartoons' logos at the bottom... and one for X-Men.

    Not to mention the Cyclops and Storm designs are pretty much original.

    They had to base those off something, and I doubt they had movie designs all prepped and ready for the X-Men without an MCU movie coming out in the next few years.

    Love the original animated series but no thanks; this is Disneyís chance to hook in a young audience the way the fox movies couldnít on their own. TAS did that for a generation, so did Evolution to a lesser extent and to the 7 real kids who watched watxm youíre the real ones. Anyways if they do put together a new series Iíd love to see lesser-adapted storylines take charge: weapon x has been done to death at this point and as much as apocalypse and co. has itís fascinating aspects itís been done too and donít even get me started on the phoenix saga. I saw people mention the messiah trilogy or second coming: Iíd love to see how these play out in a cartoon medium. Give us House of M, Schism, stuff that hasnít been done but can be a ď jumping offĒ point for the lil tykes, introducing them to modern story elements. Give us AvX, thatíd be a crowd pleaser for the kiddos. Give us some Morrison inspired stories, Academy x, etc. Hell iíll Take anything that feels fresh

    Yeah, the New X-Men era does seem like a good starting point. Most of the stories from that point on have never been used in the cartoons, nor have most of the current teens (did anyone other than X-23 show up in Wolverine and the X-Men?).

    I voted for something new. As much as I love TAS, they've had their shot. Let another creative team handle it, but please, PLEASE let it be different than the current crap Marvel's airing. Make the X-Men a total break point in the animation line. Their output has been pretty poor since they cancelled Avengers: EMH.
    What can I say but, "I love comics."

    I don't think they should bring it back. Marvel cartoons are beyond childish and very bad. X-Men TAS worked because IT was far from a childish cartoon as marvel cartoons are now, if they bring it back with Disney XD, it could destroy the entire legacy of X-Men TAS. This is not a Batman TAS or Superman TAS situation, DC still delivers with cartoons. Marvel doesn't anymore. The only marvel cartoon to be excited about is Spiderverse 2.

    I have given up with marvel cartoons at this point. There can still be some good with crap. This is just another causality of the Disney bad methodical thinking they use on Marvel. What is more upsetting is Marvel's animation line won't improve now they have X-Men back.
