Far from the best animated cartoons ever...in fact they were barely animated at all! These Canadian-produced cheapies took actual comic book panels and added slight bits of mouth or arm movement and then with extensive camera tricks made it look like it was animated. Still, they had catchy themes, some good voice acting (including character actor John Vernon from NATIONAL LAMPOON'S ANIMAL HOUSE and THE OUTLAW JOSEY WALES as both Iron Man and the Sub-Mariner) and a bizarre charm all their own. The X-Men even made their TV debut as part of one of the Sub-Mariner episodes.
