Episode Title: Night of The Sentinels. Parts 1 and 2
Original Airdate: 10-31-92
Hello everyone and welcome back to my coverage of X-Men: The Animated Series. Night of The Sentinels would be the show’s pilot episode and for a kids show. It does manage to have some pretty heavy subject material in the first few shows With concepts ranging from concentration camps in the holocaust to sacrificing your own life to save a friend. This first one does reference stories from previous issues of the comic. Such as the creation of The Sentinels(Uncanny X-Men #14) and the mutant registration act(Uncanny X-Men #181). The look and design of the characters themselves are almost identical to the ones artist Jim Lee drew in the 90’s. Let’s cue up that awesome theme song and start discussing this first entry.

X-Men The animated Series was on the Fox Kids network from October 1992 to September 1997. Now, for most people. Their love of comic books happened around the same time as the movies that were released. Well in the 90’s, there wasn’t much of a choice. Seriously the only good ones at the time were Batman, Superman, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Now having read a few issues of X-Men before seeing the show. I was very excited to see my favorite heroes in action but I was afraid they wouldn’t live up to how I saw them act in my mind. Well each character is represented pretty well and some do a much better job then the live action version in 2000.. Each week I’m going to cover episodes from the five seasons of when the show aired.
