The X-Men Episode Guide 3×10: ‘Savage Land, Strange Heart, Part 2′

X-Men Episode Guide 3x10: Savage Land, Strange Heart

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: Storm almost destroys the Savage Land, and at this point, I'm honestly hoping she does.

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.

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.

That’s why we’ve set out to review every single episode of the ’90s X-Men animated series. This week: "Whatever It Takes," where we learn a shocking secret about Storm but not really, no, not at all.

Modern Heroics Done Right In Brian Wood And Olivier Coipel’s ‘X-Men’ #1 [Review]
