Animated ‘X-Men: Danger Room Protocols’ will take you back to the ’90s

If you’re a bit nostalgic for the 1990s X-Men cartoon, you may want to brace yourself, because you’re about to be transported back to your childhood.

Joel Furtado has debuted the introduction to X-Men: Danger Room Protocols, a new animated web series that’s about as ’90s as you can get without involving Mayim Bialik. A tribute to the ’90s cartoons and comics, the biweekly series features a cast of mutants that’ll be instantly familiar to fans of the era.

As Furtado explains in the video, the 18-episode series centers on Professor X putting teams of two X-Men at a time through training exercises in the Danger Room (hence the title), pitting them against threats ranging from Magneto to Mystique to Sauron. “I’ve put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into the project,” Furtado says. “I did it partially as a love letter to Marvel and my childhood, as well as a way to give something back to the fans.”

The first episode will premiere Jan. 19 on Furtado’s YouTube channel.

This looks awesome! Can’t wait!

Will check it out

defintly will check it out espically love seeing that colluses ice man and night crawler are with the team this time around.

So lawsuit from Disney in 5.4.3.2.1.GO!

i would love it if they get Carl Dodd as Wolverine, Norm Spencer for the voices

This almost looks like a lost X-Men video game.

Disney doesn’t own X-men. Opposition would come from elsewhere. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen.

It almost looks like Capcom did the animations. I got really excited when they showed Silver Samurai and Nimrod.

Needs more Angel. LOTS more.

“Disney doesn’t own X-men. Opposition would come from elsewhere. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen”

Disney owns Marvel, which owns X-Men…

the film rights to make X-men movies are at FOX but Marvel, i.e. DIsney, still owns the characters…

There are no Marvel animated shows or movies that have any quality for adults -Avengers EMH was good, but they replaced it with Avengers Assemble which is obviously for children. That is fine, but there are no animated movies or TV shows for the core of their readership, adults. X-Men animated series from the 90’s was extremely predictable, and the dialog was soo cheese, and purposefully obviously trying to be ‘dramatic’ and ‘angst’ that is it transparent, and just like listening to fingers on a chalk board. Cheese… What a waste living in the USA, as everything is designed to break down and take money, instead of work and last -there is, and will never be anything based on quality, this is all about creating brand awareness for a bunch of consumers that have no idea what a good story is…

This is one of my experiments I made after people thought I died in 1984, as I wanted to see how people would keep subjecting themselves to heinously written predictable Marvel comics animated TV show adaptations, like the 90’s X-Men show. I found the depictions of self expression more lameness drivel, over the top self pity, and in your face doucheyness to be the most abusive part of the show, yet this was also what most ‘Americans’ found attractive. This is now termed The American Style of Self Abuse, and is considered ‘self rewarding’ in the ‘USA’ to watch shows that have no real value, while concurrently have neither any real depiction of how anyone would want to have themselves or their peers act in the real every day traffic ridden consumer bigoted ‘American’ ‘life’. The real conundrum is the lack of interest expressed at comic book news sites to write articles that have any real objective, critical, or forward thinking journalism that can contribute to new ideas, and in improving the world of ‘comic books’ to enter a more actualized, and diverse universe of sequential story telling.
