Wolverine and the X-Men is a series that ran between September 6th, 2008 and March 12th, 2009 for one season. It is the fourth animated adaptation of the X-Men characters after "Pryde of the X-Men", X-Men and X-Men: Evolution.

Background

The series was in the pre-production stage as of April 2007 and early news had speculated the show to air in Fall 2008. However, the speculation came to a rest as according to Marvel Quartely reports, the show is scheduled to air in the United States in Spring 2009. It was also confirmed in an article by USA TODAY's website in which it specifically mentions the cartoon starting in early 2009 on Nicktoons Network. Press releases indicate the first episode was due to premiere August 2nd 2008 on BBC2 UK, however it has been postponed. On June 23, 2008, a second preview for the series, starring the main X-Men team, was released to announce the special screening of the 3-part pilot episodes that aired at the San Diego Comic-Con in late July 2008. In Canada, the series will be airing on YTV starting September 6 in the 7pm time slot. In Brazil and Latin America, the series is airing on Jetix Brazil and Jetix (Latin America) starting August 25 from Mondays to Thursdays at 3:30 PM. Also starting September 1st there is a second feed running from Monday to Friday and a third one on Saturdays.

On April 15, 2010 it was announced that the second season was being put into production. This is because the producers were unable to work out the financing for the show. [1][2]

The producers considered putting Deadpool into the series, but was unable to before the series ended. Colossus was also planned to have returned, being given a reintroduction storyline and becoming a regular character in the process. Emma Frost was planned to have returned sometime into the second season, and have transferred her mind into Jean while she was sacrificing herself. Jean would block this out, though ultimately prove unsuccessful keeping her dormant and would have resulted in her revival, which would have occurred when Beast reconstructed her body.

Story

After an attack on the mansion, Professor Charles Xavier and Jean Grey are missing. The X-Men disband and Scott begins to suffer from depression. Emma Frost is able to locate a comatose Charles on Genosha in the care of Magneto. Professor Xavier telepathically orders Wolverine to lead the X-Men and set out to save the world from The Sentinel Project and prevent the Brotherhood of Mutants from taking over the world before the future ends up a bad one.
