The last couple of X-Men films have been solid, but for most fans, they don’t hold a candle to the animated X-Men series from the 90’s. Now, Youtuber joelyface, has taken it upon himself to give the fans what they want. He is getting ready to release his 18 episode web series: X-Men: Danger Room Protocols on line for free on January 19th.
The art for the series is definitely an homage to the classic series, but it is also done in a digitized format, giving it almost a retro video game feel. That really fits the Danger Room theme for the show.
X-men: Danger room Protocols is an 18 episode web series that centers around Professor X putting teams of 2 X-men at a time through various training exercises in the Danger room.
In these exercises, you’ll see the X-men face off against a variety of villains from the comics in some familiar settings to the fans. The episodes are action packed and have tons of moments for all the characters to shine.
I started developing the series a year ago, and have put a lot of blood sweat and tears into the project. I did it partially as a love letter to Marvel and my childhood, as well as a way to give something back to the fans.
