I don't think it's comparable to compare X-Men 97 to the live action MCU shows either. Animation in general is going to have a smaller audience IMO. Especially if it's not a feature film. Measuring success for this shouldn't be the same as measuring success for Ms. Marvel or Echo or whatever MCU...

[quote] He never talked about how he came up with Spiderman until 1992 and how it was almost fly man in 2002 after Spiderman 2 came out. [/quote] If you want to believe everything Stan Lee says then go right ahead. He exaggerated shite and made things up much like Hulk Hogan does. He's a hype man...

[quote]X-Men premiered in 1963 in the middle of the Civil Rights Movement and the Black Panther character and political party both in 1966....[/quote] Yes you're making my point. Stan never talked about civil rights and X-Men in an interview until the X-Men movie was coming out....

[quote]Those themes can mean different things to different people.[/quote] Ding ding ding. That's why so many people love X-Men. It's not because it was written as a civil rights allegory, but some people may take that away from it. Other connect with it for different reasons. I just dislike ...

[quote]Is your argument against the allegory being a thing really hinged on “Claremont managed to improve literarily on something Lee acknowledged was always present”?[/quote] So it was always the case when stan and jack created the x-men or it wasn't? the x-men were always "woke" or they weren't...

[quote]He has stated multiple times that it was an inspiration for the writing.[/quote] Is that why it wasn't really present until Chris Claremont started writing X-Men? and why Stan Lee wasn't on record saying it until the X-Men movie came out? ETA: Stan Lee would never exaggerate or take cre...

[quote]The whole premise of the X Men is a “woke” concept. It’s literally a series about a fight for civil rights.[/quote] It's not. During periods of its history it has been, but that's not how it started. It's really about evolution and mutants being superior to humans and trying to co-exist wi...

[quote] The stuff you're referencing is so miniscule compared to everything else in the show that it comes and goes.[/quote] I agree that it's been so minor that it doesn't ruin how fun the show has been. That said out of all the main x-men characters so far in the 10 episodes, Morph has been the...

[quote] Just do X-men 97 and Spiderman 98. Those were the OGs that everyone loved.[/quote] The Iron Man series was fun, but it doesn't need a new one. I'd be perfectly fine with those characters showing up in X-Men and Spider-man. X-men was great but Spider-man was the superior series....
