This is precisely why I can't get into the X-Men. Too many freaking characters! Well, that, and the plots have been largely terrible.

I remember when Pizza Hut had their tie-in with the animated series where they had VHS episodes.

I vaguely remember that. That cartoon, though. Whew. It's about as whiny and 90s as you can get. And the animation is TERRIBLE. Never got its popularity. Probably because it was about the only Marvel cartoon you could get at the time other than Spidey, I guess. And X-Men was selling pretty well. Still. Geez.

We're not talking the one with the fairly cute to potentially hot designs for Kitty and Wanda right? The one where Kurt was all floppy haired comic relief?

Someone say Liefeld?  My favorite posts riffing on shitty Liefeld work:

Hey, I know that we at least have one comics artist here (Edward Grug III) so if there are any, you might be interested in this.

http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2013/12/06/call-for-line-it-is-drawn-artists/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

Basically, it's an fun art thingy where you draw fan suggested comic related things, usually mash-ups.  It's a good way for more exposure and some of them have gotten a lot of attention on the internet.  For example, this week was comic character/Doctor Who team-ups/mash-ups.  (I always try to suggest.  This week I suggested Thor Vs. Sutekh, Romana joining the Birds of Prey, Prez and the Doctor saving the founding father from Daleks and, my personal favourite, the fifth Doctor trying to stop the Cybermen from calling to vote for Adric's death a la the Jason Todd/Death in the Family story).

Here are some recent cool drawings, BTW (some of which I suggested).

I'm guessing it's a limited series.
