Cartoon that delves into the full complexity of the X-Men mythos

It's a shame this show was cancelled after one season. Even so, it is definitely worth viewing, particularly if this is your first experience with the X-Men. The storyline highlights crucial themes of the X-Men universe, prejudice and discrimination. The show fully utilizes the metaphors for racism, homophobia, and general prejudice against those who are considered the "other" found in the discrimination against mutants.
On top of that, it does great justice to so many well-known X-Men characters, Wolverine, of course, but also Nightcrawler, Emma Frost, Magneto, the Scarlet Witch, and Professor Xavier. I would have been nice to see a bit more diversity in the body types of female characters (the men are well-done in this area), but at least the female characters are well fleshed out.

The Xmen show to watch

Wolverine and the X Men is a well written show with engaging stories, developed characters and superb animation. However this shows places too much focus on the title character. rather than the X men team itself, leaving some characters underutilized. Nevertheless, whether you an Xmen fan or even if you love superheros, Wolverine and the X men is fantastic for all ages.
