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.

The X-Men have been through some pretty rough stuff. That's actually kind of their deal; "going through rough stuff" is the default setting for those mutants, and the only time they're not going through rough stuff is when they've either just finished going through something terrible or are just about to go through something terrible, two states that tend to coexist on two or three pages about twice a year.
