‘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.

The X-Men Episode Guide 2×06: X-Ternally Yours

XMen00

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: X-Ternally Yours, in which Gambit's ex-girlfriend might be even worse at relationships than Gambit himself.

AT01

On the off chance that you aren't already aware of it through our near-constant coverage, Cartoon Network's Adventure Time is one of our favorite things in the entire universe. The show's unique combination of action, comedy and surprisingly dark content has won over a legion of fans, and raised plenty of questions. Fortunately, San Diego brought us the chance to sit down with John DiMaggio, Olivia Olson, Jeremy Shada and Tom Kinney to talk about their roles, their interaction with fans, and how they feel about fans mashing up their songs with the work of Jay-Z.

Also: Gambit.

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.

Bizarro Back Issues: How Gambit’s Wife Got The Ghost Rider Possessed By Aliens (1992)

gambit01

Like a lot of people my age, I have a lot of affection for early '90s X-Men comics. Their combination of bright colors, superpowers built entirely around punching things with knives or making them explode, overblown personal conflicts and the least subtle metaphors ever committed to paper made them almost scientifically designed to appeal to kids of that decade. Of course, they're also some o
