    Default 90s Marvel Cartoons

    Panels to Pixels takes a look at Marvel's animated output from the 90s and how the influence of these cartoons can be felt today

    Not as tight continuity as that guy thinks - the FF costumes in the thumbnail, taken from Spider-Man, don't match how they looked on the Marvel Action Hour.

    And there's a claim 12 minutes in that Spidey was in two X-Men episodes. Nope, it was the X-Men who appeared in Spider-Man.

    Being a 90’s kid, I LOVED those cartoons. I really wish they would release a complete DVD collection of the Spider-Man cartoon.

    To me Spider-Man is the only 90’s cartoon series from Marvel that has withstood the test of time and is still watchable. I tried rewatching many of them and they were definitely better when I was a kid lol
    Favorite Characters: The Flash (Jay, Wally, Barry), Daredevil, Spider-Man (Peter Parker), Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), The Atom (Ray Palmer), Starman (Jack Knight), Stargirl, Captain Marvel/Shazam! (Billy Batson), Hawkman (Carter Hall), and Iron Fist.

    Current Pulls: The Flash, Hal Jordan, Daredevil, Amazing Spider-Man, and Iron Fist.

    Didn't they do a version of Secret Wars in the Spider-Man cartoon?

    The Spider-Man cartoon was out of its mind. The Spider Slayers were prominent, BLADE, they tied in Black Cat's origin to Captain America's, Secret Wars, killed off MJ, introduced Hobgoblin before Green.

    Boi.

    Fantastic Four was my favourite. They adapted a lot of the Kirby stories.

    Thanks.....the reason I didn't think that was where the image came from is because Sue was pregnant during the time when the first Secret War took place.

    Loved the 90's cartoons of X-MEN, Spider-Man, Hulk, Iron Man Season 2, and Season 2 of Fantastic Four was just about the best versions of the FF put to film.

    What an era, what a time to be alive!

    I loved all those shows, I collected action figures from the shows and tape recorded so many episodes.

    Well, it was a different story, with had Madam Web and the Beyonder testing Spidey . The heroes were Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, Storm, Captain America, Iron Man, Lizard and Black Cat while the villains were Doctor Doom, Doctor Octopus, Alistair Smythe and Red Skull

    In that respect it's about on par with the current animated continuity .

    Great video. I remember those cartoons fondly. They were what helped get me into comics. They were the best part of my day, even. I'd get home from school, run into the living room, and watch Spider-Man and X-men. The fact they crossed over and became part of a larger universe made it all the more worth watching. In fact, in the early days of the MCU, that's what I often hoped it would embody and it has, apparently. I still hope that one day we'll see another animated Marvel universe, but after the cancelation of Wolverine and the X-men and Avengers EMH, I'm not too hopeful. Even so, the 90s cartoons set the bar pretty high for all the right reasons.

    He was in at least one, the final part of the Phoenix Saga adaptation where you could see his shadow landing on a rooftop and then a web shooting from a red-gloved hand to catch some debris that would have otherwise struck innocent people caught in the chaos of the M'Kraan Crystal sucking all reality into itself.
