X-Men the Animated Series Cast Reunion Video

X-Men the Animated Series Cast Reunion Video

Jay Cochran - December 13, 2020
Chandler Poling sends word that earlier this this year they helped moderate and produce a panel featuring the cast of X-Men the Animated Series in remembrance of the actor Norm Spencer (Cyclops) who died on Aug 31st, 2020. This is the first time they've gathered in such a large group since they were making the series! The panel arrives nearly 30 years after the premiere of the show which happened Oct 31st, 1992. It was such an honor for me to be asked to moderate this group and I hope you are able to share it to your audiences.

Below are some quick facts with timecode to the best moments of the panel.

These folks have done several panels and virtual fan experiences for Wizard World, too.  Seems a bit weird that Alyson Court is never a part of them, but still cool nonetheless.

Good to see a cast that brought a lot of joy, and public awareness of the X-Men, to a lot of people. Would've like to see Prof X, Jean, and Jubilee too. For myself, the show wasn't quite up there with Batman: The Animated Series, but I still enjoyed it and was glad it was on!
