X-Men, The Animated Series Review

Posted in Comic Books on June 4th, 2011 by Willie

Before I launched williesimpson.com, I ran a website called internetclub91.com with my friend Ken Kocses.  On that site, I created a web series called the Superhero Club Review.  The reviews had the premise that I would review every superhero related TV show and movie ever.  Well, I still haven’t given up on the idea, and I WILL return to reviewing these things one day, maybe soon.  Anyway, in honor of the new X-Men First Class movie coming out, I thought I’d repost my review of the legendary 90s cartoon, X-Men.  If I start making reviews soon, I’m going to begin with the X-Men movies, but until then, I hope you enjoy this if you’ve never seen it.
