On January 23 at 8:00 pm Eastern Standard Time, Marvel's mighty mutants experience an animated rebirth when "Wolverine and the X-Men" slashes its way onto the Nicktoons Network! Until then, stay glued to Marvel.com every day for sneak peeks, clips, exclusive art and looks back at the history of the X-Men in animation!
Last Friday, "Wolverine and the X-Men" premiered on Nicktoons Network, and we have just what you need to get prepped for the show: a brand new trailer, the full scoop on the debut episode and a heaping helping of new stills!
The series premiere finds the X-Men on shaky ground. A year after a mysterious explosion destroyed the Xavier Institute and broke up the weary X-Men, an embittered Wolverine has lost himself on the open road, haunted by the unexplained fate of the missing Professor X and Jean Grey.
But his efforts to keep a low profile end when he's brought back into the crosshairs of the Mutant Response Division (MRD) after rescuing a family from a fiery train derailment. When the family shows kindness to Wolverine, however, they're arrested by the MRD, charged with harboring a fugitive mutant. Galvanized into action, Wolverine enlists the help of Beast and together they infiltrate the enemy's lair, successfully liberating not only the innocent family, but a dozen captured mutants as well. But Wolverine knows these kinds of problems won't be going away, and so he's left with one option-bring back the X-Men.
