X-Men: Evolution is an American animated television series about the Marvel Comics superhero team, the X-Men. In this incarnation, many of the characters are teenagers rather than adults. The series ran for a total of four seasons (52 episodes) from November 4, 2000 until October 25, 2003 on Kids' WB, which has made it the third longest-running Marvel Comics animated series, behind only Fox Kids' X-Men and Spider-Man animated series. The series began running on Disney XD on June 15, 2009.

Why It Rocks

  1. Fantastic theme song.
  2. The animation is a large step up from the previous X-Men series.
  3. The idea of having the X-Men team consist of mostly teens is a very unique concept, along with the fact that they are learning how to be heroes, with characters such as Beast, Wolverine, Storm and Professor X serving as teachers.
    • This can be a reference to the early X-Men comics where the members were teenagers with Professor X as their Mentor
  4. Likable characters such as Professor X, Cyclops, Wolverine, Kitty Pryde/Shadowcat, Rogue and Storm.
  5. Cool action scenes with fun interactions between the X-Men.
  6. Captain America makes a cameo in the show.
  7. Several references to the Marvel universe are made throughout the show.
  8. Awesome villains such as The Brotherhood Of Mutants, Magneto, Apocalypse and more.
  9. The show's finale has the future X-Men team with costumes that look similar to those from the Ultimate X-Men comics.

Bad Qualities

  1. The first season is the weakest of the entire show.
  2. Some of the dialouge can be cringeworthy.
  3. A fifth season was planned but was scrapped.
