Marvel has announced that Joss Whedon and John Cassaday’s Astonishing X-Men will be adapted into an animated series. Marvel has previously released a motion comic based off the first story arc Gifted, but nothing beyond that was released. Emma Frost and Scott Summers have been the headmasters of the Xavier Institute for some time now, so it will be nice to see an animated representation of how things have been in the X-Men comics for the past 7 years or more. If they go by the book the core members will consist of Cyclops, Emma Frost, Wolverine, Beast, Kitty Pryde, Colossus, Armor, and maybe Storm. Hopefully this will fill the void in my heart that was left when Wolverine and the X-Men was cancelled.
