Needless Things Podcast 218 – Eric & Julia Lewald: X-Men The Animated Series

NT%2B218%2Bpic.jpg

On this week’s episode Dave talks to two of the minds behind the seminal 90s X-Men animated series!
 
­The early 90’s X-Men cartoon (now typically with “The Animated Series” attached) was a landmark in not only comic book adaptations, but in animated storytelling. It presented the complex stories and themes of Marvel’s Mutants in a more palatable, streamlined form while preserving the edgy and mature nature of the source material, as well as the social consciousness that the comics were known for.
 
Listen in as Dave goes behind the scenes of one of the greatest comic book cartoons of all time with the creators themselves!

PhantomTroublemaker, Beth, and Chad J. Shonk discuss Marvel’s MerryMutants – the X-Men!

Overthe years the corner of the Marvel Universe that was not occupied bythe Avengers has been a place of almost constant change. Evolution,one might say. Stan Lee and Jack Kirby started the adventures of theoriginal team of outcast teenagers back in 1963 and the moniker“X-Men” has included many different teams and characters sincethen.

Thepopularity of the mutants was such that Hollywood made them one ofthe first success stories of the comic book movie boom. We’ve beengetting movies with “X” in the title since 200, with wildlyvarying degrees of quality but almost universal success. The newestentry – X-Men:Apocalypse– comes out today and looks to be one of the most divisive entriesso far!

Listenin as Beth, Chad, and Phantom discuss the evolution of theirindividual X-Men fandom and the success – or lack thereof – ofthe various movie adaptations!
