A great many of us comic book nerds grew up in a time when we were short on superhero films in the cinemas (at least compared today), but entertained weekly by animated shows instead. The early-to-mid ’90s was a fun time to be a superhero fan when it came to cartoons, with each week bring us heroics adventures on “Batman“, “Superman“, “Spider-Man“, “Swamp Thing“, the “Marvel Power Hour“, and many more. While I watched them all, the one that held my attention the most (alongside with the aforementioned “Batman“), was Fox’s “X-Men“.
Packed to the mutant gills with crazy plot lines and characters, it was a sight to behold week in and out. Granted it’s primary function was to shuffle toys onto begging kids and the parents willing to purchase them, but such is the way of things when it comes to animated shows. Still, it captured my imagination at a formative time. Does the series hold up? Nostalgia stills runs high for me, but even then, it’s deficiencies are obvious now.
I look on my memories more fondly than I do the series itself and it seems I’m not the only one who smiles while thinking of it. I guarantee that the people who took the time to craft the fan trailer below feel the same way. Some glorious person out there has slapped the sound and dialogue from the first trailer to Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse onto footage culled from multiple seasons of the 90s animated series and it’s far more entertaining than it has any right to be…
