The X-Men Episode Guide 3×19: ‘Nightcrawler’

X-Men Episode Guide 3x19: Nightcrawler

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, Nightcrawler shows up and Wolverine finds Jesus. Not even kidding.

Bizarro Back Issues: The Extremely Sketchy Debut Of That Scumbag Gambit (1990)

Uncanny X-Men #267, Marvel Comics

If you've been following along with ComicsAlliance's weekly X-Men Episode Guide, you've probably noticed that I have become utterly fascinated with that scumbag Gambit. That guy is just so alarmingly, hilariously sketchy -- especially for a show I watched when I was ten -- that I am in danger of becoming obsessed with him on a level that I don't think anyone has experienced since the heyday of '90s erotic fan-fiction.

So obsessed, in fact, that I decided this week to go back and check out his first couple of appearances to see just where this weirdo came from, and this... this may have been a mistake. I have been reading comics for over a quarter of a century now, and Uncanny X-Men #267 might be the single most incomprehensible superhero story I have ever read.

‘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.
