    Next I would be Evolution weak first season but it's season 1 finale was great, the series got better with season 2 and adding the New Mutants, and hit it's stride with season 3 forward.

    After Evolution would be Wolverine and the X-Men arguably the tightest season of any X-Men show and was really good wish we got more.

    Then X-Men Anime a nice miniseries with great animation.

    Last Wolverine good but story a little weak and young looking was wrong IMO.

    OK Pryde of the X-Men seems unfair to judge compared to the rest given it's only a pilot. Great animation and story for it's time also nice to hear Michael Ball as Cyclops as a GI Joe and Transformers fan as a kid Michael Ball was always a welcome addition to anything.
    Cyclops is basically civilian cartoon-Duke anyway.

    Though as a kid I saw Cyclops and Flint as basically interchangeable.

    Hell, Duke and Flint were interchangeable.

    I'll go with X-MEN Anime... my two favorite things combined

    The agreement also provides Disney with the opportunity to reunite the X-Men with the Marvel family under one roof and create richer, more complex worlds of inter-related characters and stories that audiences have shown they love. It only makes sense for Marvel to be supervised by one entity. There shouldn't be two Marvels.

    The TAS voice actors will always be the X-Men voices of my youth. The ones I will imagine in my head as I read along in the comics.

    But goddamn, I love Japanese VAs who do American characters.

    The 90s Animated Series of X-Men is so iconic and such a treat for fans. While some of it doesn't hold up as well, still a fantastic series. I take a deep look at the show here. Hope you enjoy.

    Here's my list:

    X-Men Evolution: This is the best X-Men cartoon for me. The art style, premise of X-Men characters in normal high school, the ridiculous made up character Spyke, and slow pacing of the first season threw off a lot of fans, but those that stuck with it got great stories, nice animation, the best voice acting in an X-Men series, and some of the most awesome portrayals of classic X-Men villains ever. Seriously, Juggernaut, Mystique, and the first Sentinel were freaking awesome! Plus, it finally put two of my favorite X-Men, Shadowcat and Nightcrawler, in the cast. Once they dropped Spyke, this series was consistently awesome throughout its entire run. I recommend it to everyone to watch.

    X-Men: The 90's series was pretty good. I actually even kind of liked Jubilee, whom I hated with a freaking passion in the comics. Even then, I didn't mind that she kind of disappeared most of the time. The first two seasons were pretty tight, which helped the series since the animation was subpar by that period's standards. I remembered being really excited for the Dark Pheonix saga, but really hated how badly they butchered it. I knew it couldn't go as dark as the comic, but still, man, that was terrible. The remaining seasons got even worse. Also, the voice acting was also subpar to the period's standards. I can only recommend the first two seasons.

    Pryde of the X-Men: I can't tell you how many times I watched this video tape over and over. Man, it was awesomely terrible. The hammy overacting, the powers that made no sense, making Wolverine an Australian, it was just so cheesy! And that's its charm. Plus, they based the awesome X-Men arcade game on this solo shot. It's terrible, but I love it.

    Wolverine and the X-Men: I couldn't even make it halfway through the first season. Nothing made sense. I couldn't tell if they wanted to do a Wolverine series or an X-Men series. It was pretty clear that they didn't either. It was all just too disjointed.

    I never watched the X-Men or Wolverine animes, so I haven't a clue how good or bad they are.

    TaS is great except for some reason it feels like Wolverine is crying every other episode. But yea it's my favorite Wolverine and the Xmen has amazing potential but got cut short before it get going on AoA.

    My current list:

    X-Men Anime: Personally, think this is an excellent modern story for the X-Men. The action scenes are intense and I love how the characters are portrayed. It was darker but not completely grim. Overall, I love this one. Only con was Hisako (Armor's) Voice. Really squeeky and irritating.

    X-Men Evolution: Really good ideas for telling a story of the X-Men for a younger generation. X-23, characterization, and most of the plots were awesome. Only cons were that some of those ideas I wasn't completely a fan of. Principal Kelly was probably the worst.

    X-Men TOS: I used to consider this show one of the best of all time and I'll always respect the impact it had for the X-Men. Getting a lower rank because after watching a few episodes once more, it did not age well.

    Wolverine and the X-Men: It had a few good moments and I gave it many chances, but overall, not interested. Tough to describe. Weird and bland

    Yeah, Principal Kelly and Spyke are the two biggest things I would change about X-Men Evolution. Thankfully, neither appeared much in the series.

    X-Men Evolution was a slow burn for me. Didn't enjoy the set up or the first season and a bit, but it finally clicked in the third and fourth seasons and then I was so bummed that it was cancelled. I take a good look at the show in this video. Hope you enjoy.

    Wolverine and the X-Men was an interesting show with a different conceit. Wolverine was the leader and Cyclops was in the background. I'm not sure how much I liked that aspect of it, but I do think the show was fun and had legs. Too bad it never got that second season.
