X-Men: Evolution, a brief overview
So Iíve decided to re-watch and review X-Men: Evolution.
X-Men: Evolution (2000-2003) was an animated adaption of Marvelís X-Men franchise. It had bit of the Spin-Off Babies vibe being a ďMutants in High SchoolĒ Teen Drama series though still with plenty of action. It did start to break away from the high school aspects in Season 3 and 4 focusing on a Myth Arc with Apocalypse.
The series worked to go its own way instead of being a direct adaption from the comics and gave us a few original characters like Spyke (Stormís nephew) and now Canon Immigrant X-23 (a clone of Wolverine created by HYDRA). We were also given a more sympathetic take on the Brotherhood of Mutants portraying them as Jerk With Heart of Gold street kids then absolute evil.
So with that all said letís jump aboard the evolution.
I really enjoyed this show and I loved the different take they had on the characters. The only thing I was disappointed with in this show was that Colossus barely had character development, even though he was introduced much later on and he was on Magneto's side, but that's because I'm a huge fan of Colossus!

In some ways X-men: Evolution is actually a throwback to the original X-men comics (what with the high school setting and such)
