There are a thousand things to remember and celebrate about X-MEN:TAS, but at or near the top of the list is the presence of the character Wolverine.  Logan, as he was also known, was front-and-center in the rebirth, the super-charging of a once-dead comics title called “X-Men.”  The man who co-created that character (for an editor, with an artist — it’s always a group effort) is owed our gratitude.  X-MEN:TAS — and the many movies and TV series that followed — would not have been the same without him.  Today my wife Julia and I heard the good news that Len’s stay in the hospital has been a complete success and that he will be coming home soon.  Len would probably tell me to stop with the testimonials already and get back to talking about the show, so this is it.  But I thought it would be nice to show an original image of Logan, to those who haven’t seen one, as he first appeared from the fevered imaginations of Len, Roy Thomas, and John Romita, Sr.  A year later, Wolverine would be one of the X-Men.




Eric - showrunner/developed for television - and Julia - episode writer - for X-Men: The Animated Series 1992-1997 - now with 2 books about the experience: 1) the definitive oral history titled Previously on X-Men & 2) X-Men The Art and Making of the Animated Series
