    okay, so recently I've been interested in wolverine and the x men and it looks cool, so I looked it up on Wikipedia and it said that it was a sequel show to x men evolution which is a sequel to x men the animated series which is a sequel to pryde of the x men. do I have to watch those three shows before watching wolverine and the x men? because I'd prefer not to.

    No, you don't. I've never seen any connection between any of those other shows and this. It's its own thing.

    None of those shows are in the same continuity.

    ^This.

    Wolverine and the X-Men was a fantastic show. It's an absolute shame that Marvel killed it.

    The Wikipedia entry says it's the fourth animated adaption of the X-Men but doesn't say it's a sequel to any of the other shows :p  Anyway it is a great show, in its own continuity. However, be prepared to be disappointed by it's abrupt ending brought about by cancellation.

    As Star Saber mentioned. Wikipedia is merely listing each of the X-Men cartoons in order. The only two things that Wolverine and the X-Men is tied into, are the current Avengers cartoon, and the Hulk Vs. dvd.

    I thought it was worth watching until the very last episode. I won't spoil anything, but the fact that it was canceled when it was makes it not really worth a watch in my eyes...

    WATX is Part of the Same Universe as Avengers EMH and Marvel are considering that they would revive the show one day.

    I thought Wolverine and the X-Men had a good enough ending. It did set up things for the next season but the story of the 1st season was wrapped up enough.

    You don't have to, but 90's X-Men is one of the best cartoons of all time.

    I thought that until I actually tried to watch it again recently. Horrible dialogue, eye bleeding 90s design asthetic and an almost complete lack of doing anything interesting with the source material instead of just directly watering it down.

    Not bad series but had flaws.

    While I love the X-Men. I hate the idea of Wolverine leading the team and more importantly how pathethic and annoying Cyclops became. Seriousily when will he ever act awesome?

    These we're the two flaws i had with the show otherwise it was good. I wished the next season had been made but like UltraAlanMagnus said. It is the same continuity as the Avengers so perhaps a continuation could be in the works.

    It's a shame that they cancelled the show. It was really good and Deadpool was going to be in season 2.

    Cyclops will act awesome again when he's written well, which hasn't been for more than a decade in any medium or continuity. Besides, Cyclops acting like a pussy is the only possible way they could justify that turd Wolverine becoming leader.
