TRAILER: CLICK HERE
The X-Men are a team of elite super-powered mutants gathered by Professor Xavier to protect ordinary humans even as they are persecuted by them. In the wake of the death of one of their own, however, the team has stopped operations for a whole year. Then Professor X receives word of a mutant girl's mysterious disappearance in Japan. Sensing that something larger is afoot, he reassembles the team and sends them to investigate. They uncover a connection between her disappearance and an anti-mutant group known as the U-Men.

Anyone watching the show? The first two episodes were great, it's like they took the best of X-men and combined it with Japanese anime rules and traditions. Plus great animation. I want to see where this goes.
On a random note, why is Storm always on the verge of passing out? I never remember her doing that in the old cartoon series, she's always been one of those ueber-powerful mutants iirc... It's like she's been nerfed beyond belief.
The Beast looks cute, and Wolverine got faaaat.
