MARVEL ON TV BEFORE X-MEN:TAS

From 1966 through 1992, there were eleven attempts to bring Marvel characters to TV animation and no movies.  That’s hard to imagine today in 2017.  You can find videos of the early attempts on Youtube; you’ll be surprised how different that world was. Hollywood just didn’t get the spirit of the comics.  Perhaps that is why it was so difficult (nearly 10 years trying) for Margaret Loesch to get our version of a Marvel title on the air and why there was deep suspicion felt by TV stations and advertisers about X-MEN:TAS until the day our series  proved itself.
