30 Days of Marvel, Day 24: Favorite Cartoon Adaption

The 1990's version of X-Men that aired on Fox Kids. This is where I first learned about the exploits of the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters. When it was recently added to Netflix Streaming I was elated beyond all belief. I was able to relive my child hood. While it doesn't age perfectly, some of the animation is wonky and the voice acting feels flat, it always warms my heart to watch any random episode. The show even tackled some of the more prominent storylines from the comics, such as Charles and Magneto being stuck in the Savage Land and the infamous Phoenix saga. All in all it is a great adaption.
