Wolverine and the X-Men is an American animated series produced by Marvel Animation. It is one of several animated adaptation of the X-Men comics. It is part of the Christopher Yost Animated Universe, a series of animated shows and films that all share the same continuity. This series includes The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

Premise Edit

Wolverine is planning to leave the X-Men when an explosion causes Charles Xavier and Jean Grey to disappear, forcing the team to disband and go their separate ways and putting the league out of omission. One year later, a government-supported organization known as the Mutant Response Division (MRD) begins capturing mutants from all over the country to preserve the safety of humankind. This course of action causes Wolverine and Beast to ally and resolve to bring the once defunct X-Men team back together again.

Why It Was Cancelled Edit

A second season seemed unlikely, and Marvel Animation Age confirmed it to be cancelled because of financial problems with their financing partner due to Disney purchasing Marvel while Fox owned the movie rights to the X-Men.
