The X-Men Episode Guide 3×17: ‘Orhphan’s End’

The X-Men Episode Guide 3x17: 'Orhphan's End'

The early ’90s were spoiled for choice when it came to comic book adaptations. Not only was Batman: The Animated Series on the air, but X-Men led Marvel’s push to get on the small screen, diving right into the often convoluted continuity of everyone’s favorite mutants, luring in a generation of fans, and paving the way for cartoons to follow. That’s why we’ve set out to review every single episode of the ’90s X-Men animated series. This week, Cyclops finally figures out who his father is, and Storm will meet you... AT THE MONORAIL!

Greg Rucka Returns To Marvel To Write ‘Cyclops’ Ongoing Series

Cyclops

It's no secret that Greg Rucka's last experience writing for Marvel left the award-winning writer frustrated. But time passes and fences are mended, and as we've seen so often in the past, it's never too late for a creator to return. Sometimes all it takes is the right project.

So while it may not be a surprise, it is certainly welcome news that Rucka will be returning to Marvel to write an ongoing solo series starring the younger Cyclops from All-New X-Men, collaborating with illustrator Russell Dauterman. And what appealed to Rucka about the project wasn't just his affinity for the Marvel character, but the fact that he has a son around the same age.

‘Saturday Night Live’s Taran Killam Plays Every Character In The ’90s X-Men Cartoon Pilot [Video]

Killam top

If you've been following ComicsAlliance for the last few months, you'll know that we are somewhat fascinated by the '90s X-Men cartoon. It was an important moment for Marvel, as the show introduced many kids to both the X-Men and the Marvel universe. In the process the show helped create a new generation of fans, including Saturday Night Live star Taran Killam. On hand at New York Comic Con to promote The Illegitimates, the comic he created with writer Marc Andreyko, Killam made a guest appearance at the Marvel booth, where he recreated the pilot episode of the show while playing every character. His Gambit is appropriately creepy, his Cyclops is appropriately dickish, and his Jubilee recreates the weirdest rhetorical question we have ever heard anyone ask. It's pretty great.

Bizarro Back Issues: The X-Men, Pizza And Cyberspace, Together At Last (1993)

Hut01

When you consider that I'm spending a good portion of every week recapping the '90s X-Men cartoon, you might think that I'd have my fill of '90s mutant nostalgia, but that is definitely not the case. If anything, going back through that show has made me want to go back and revisit that stuff even more. That's why I went out a few days ago and grabbed one of the most treasured artifacts of my childhood: the four-part X-Men Collector's Edition comics released in 1993 and sold at Pizza Hut.

Seriously, you guys. There was a time in this country when you could go out and get a pizza and comic books about the X-Men jacking into cyberspace in the same building. If we want to make America great again, I suggest we start there.

The ‘X-Men’ Episode Guide 1×06: Cold Vengeance

XMen00

1992 was a pretty good year to be a kid who loved comics. The reason that holds up best is probably — and by that I mean definitelyBatman: The Animated Series, but there was another show that had just as big an influence on my childhood: the 1992 X-Men cartoon.

Hitting at the height of the franchise’s popularity, X-Men translated all the action and melodrama that made the comic such a success to the world of Saturday morning cartoons, and it got its hooks into me like almost nothing else. That’s why ComicsAlliance is heading back through the archives for an in-depth look at every single episode of X-Men. This week: "Cold Vengeance," in which the X-Men journey to two foreign lands. One is the exotic and dangerous island of Genosha, a site full of hidden schemes and an ominous future for the entire mutant race. The other is Canada.

While there are certainly more tragic stories in X-Men history, Cyclops' ranks pretty high. Never mind the whole "I'm now estranged from nearly all my loved ones because I went to extreme lengths to save my endangered race" thing. The real tragedy is that, for his entire adult li
