"WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN" marks the return of Marvel's most Uncanny mutant heroes to the small screen and in 2009 the first 26 episodes of this new saga will begin airing on to Nicktoons Network
Here's a brief description of this epic new action adventure series:
"When an explosive event shatters the lives of the X-Men and takes away their mentor, the beaten heroes walk away from it all.
But then they're given a rare glimpse into the future, and see a world in utter ruin, ruled by mutant hunting Sentinels. A world that spiraled out of control because the X-Men had given up.
So now the most legendary of all X-Men takes the lead - Wolverine! Reuniting these broken heroes, Wolverine embarks on the ultimate mission - to prevent the world's destruction.
To rescue us from ourselves. To save the future."
Although, we are still months away from its Nicktoons television début, you can be the first to see the THREE-PART PILOT of Wolverine and the X-Men at the SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON.
