Joel Furtado, a Canadian animator and X-Men fan will be giving his fellow “X-Fans” a shot of nostalgic joy with an 18-episode web series based on the 90s animated series.
Each episode will be based around a single Danger Room battle and the first one will be called “Survival,” starring Jean Grey and Wolverine (we get the feeling Cyclops won’t like that one). X-Men: Danger Room Protocols will debut on 19th January with subsequent episodes freely available on his YouTube channel.
UPDATE: It turns out X-Men: Danger Room Protocols was cancelled after one episode. Why? Because Marvel said so. According to Joel himself (via CBR):
“When I set out to make this project, I never really thought this was going to be an issue. I didn’t think that Marvel was going to react this way, and this outcome, for me, is a little bit shocking.”
Marvel declined to comment.
But the internet being the internet, you can still stream the first, last, and only episode below.Tags: 90s, cartoon Last modified: May 10
