Episode #137 – Pryde of the X-Men

1992 was a stellar year for Marvel’s Merry Mutants. It was the year X-Men: the Animated Series premiered. What some fans might not know, is that before that, a little-known pilot was produced for another X-Men animated series in 1989.  The pilot, titled “Pryde of the X-Men” ultimately was never ordered to series, but none-the-less is a superb piece of superhero animation that maybe doesn’t get the praise it deserves. Join the panel as they dive into the animation archive and revisit “Pryde of the X-Men”
