So it is only fair you be consistent. The old cartoons been a different medium would not matter, We already see how MCU Spiderman get inferiorly compared to Spiderverse or Spectacular Spiderman and vice versa for Batman cartoons and movies, I don't see that changing with X-MEN.



    Regular comic book fandoms. X books, those X-Men fans there still prefer the animations to any movies. I have seen fans put the DOFP 1 and 2 episodes of TAS over the movie and that is no small feat, when you think DOFP is a movie, Feige can't even imagine putting together. To stress this further and see why some fans will favour the cartoon, when DOFP episodes aired in 1992/1993, it was considered one of the most ground breaking moments on a Saturday morning cartoon. ''kids'' were not used to seeing Saturday morning shows talked so deeply or seriously about assassinations of politicians , human traitors, genocide and concentration camps. LOL , If anyone is still asking for impact of the series? that was one fine moment. I mean, this cant even happen now in any marvel cartoon or even movie in 2021.

    You can easily equate other XMEN TAS episodes like Bloodlines, Courage, Xavier Remembers and Nightcrawler to Batman TAS, episodes also known for their depth, less action scenes and more plot lines, mature story telling and some..... strong religious themes and they were not the sterilised episodes . Just a throw away factual example.



    The best part is that the comments on that clip, is people, marvel's own fans complaining about how generic and far less thought provoking most marvel films are now compared to this 90s show because you dont see this type of stories in comic films anymore in 2021. if we want to talk standing the test of time. this is how you do it. it is not about Rotten tomatoes scores or twitter trends.

    X-MEN TAS was officially named the most successful animated comic cartoon of all time in the 90s. It was one of the things that was keeping marvel out of Bankruptcy in the 90s. Also I believe I have had this discussion before about TMNT, This is a series though very successful in its own right, you would not even know firstly the heroes were ''mutants'' because by the time XMEN TAS was out, X-MEN had Trademarked and patterned the mutant term, no one thinks of mutants and remembers TMNT, first they think of is X-MEN and TMNT is the series that even has the mutant name on the label, so objectively the idea that TMNT had more impact is just laughably false and not to mention, I find very desperate because impact was all down to story telling and rewriting what a ''kids'' cartoons could be and neither TNMT or Transformers story telling went above the kids market. it will be a counterfeit to put TMNT and Transformers on the same level simply because XMEN TAS is considered a very intellectual cartoon. TMNT and Transformers are not. this is a big difference that cannot be glossed over.

    X-Men evolution creating X23 while commendable and impactful still does not give it the overall edge of XMEN TAS , Morph who was an original character in TAS was a bigger deal than X23 pre Logan movie, because he was a the character that had the longest arc on the show and his story arc was darker than X23. Additionally there are some marvel fans that cite XMEN TAS as the real thing that made x-men surpass Spiderman in the 90s as the most valuable Marvel IP and this is no small feat when you think marvel only had about 3 A-Lists IP back then. X-MEN Evolution, mostly stayed in the shadows of TAS. this is just a TV reception fact. if XMEN TAS was Star Trek TNG, Evolution was Star Trek DS9.

    If you ask what is XMEN TAS remembered for, well I trust you know the answer already as already mentioned. you keep on saying kids loved it but the main draw of the series was not kids, the main draw of the series were teens and adults, reason it is always brought up after almost 3 decades, because adults are not in their 30s and 40s and can talk about the show more openly and smartly or now get things on the show, they missed as kids. this also goes back to the origins of the cartoons and why it was so successful, it was secretly not meant for kids

    When we here MCU is not allowed to tackle depression, in a realistic way, marvel fans bring up xmen tas to prove this is wrong. when Fiege tells you marvel cannot be dark, marvel fans will remind you for XMEN TAS episode 1 the now very infamous Night of the Sentinels Episodes that ended on a very dark note and that was just the first episode of the show. when Disney tells us, every marvel IP must deeply connect to the other to be interesting like overplaying the Spiderman/Iron Man dynamic, XMEN TAS destroys that narrative since the only other marvel character it ever interacted with was with Spiderman and only for 2 episodes. No offence to ask what the series is remembered for, is just beyond sad/laughable to me that, I almost feel sorry for how extremely pressed down and ill-equipped MCU looks to that show because the show has all the answers to all the problems many bring up in the MCU most in famous, Spiderman is Iron Man jr or the wrong tone of many of their movies. If xmen had the Ragnarok story line, TAS would never had made it a watered down comedy.

    it was also a far bigger deal for marvel fans when it went on Disney plus. they cared more about that show than their own MCU movies and even accused Disney of trying to remove some of the content of the show.

    Disney has also toiled with the idea of rebooting the show several times, which would never happen? and this is Disney, a studio that was hell bent on wiping out any marvel stuff not part of the MCU but even Disney does not want to let the series go because they knew the impact of the show

    Not unless the cartoon is officially considered the best interpretation of the series. it's the good girlfriend, you cannot break really up with. As for dramatic content, I dont see that because some of their last films and teasers like falcon and Winter solider and Shang Chi were heavily and looks more on the action driven side and their other films in phase 4 and 5 are still on the comedy side like Thor Love and Thunder and GOTG 3.
    Okay, you stan XM: TAS. Fine, you do you. All I can say though, is that when the MCU X-Men movies do come out, I think people are going to be more interested in how Sir Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman's successors fair then if Jubilee asks if mall babes eat chili fries.

    Is that link supposed to back up your statement? Because it doesn't, nothing in that article backs up your obviously made-up claim.
    Tolstoy will live forever. Some people do. But that's not enough. It's not the length of a life that matters, just the depth of it. The chances we take. The paths we choose. How we go on when our hearts break. Hearts always break and so we bend with our hearts. And we sway. But in the end what matters is that we loved... and lived.
