Wolverine and the X-Men DVD cover

For thirty-five years, he has been the best at what it does, but what he does isn't pretty. Now, 2009 marks an pivotal year for Wolverine, as he not only returns to the big screen this summer in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but on the small screen in the latest X-Men cartoon entitled Wolverine and the X-Men. This time, the gruff, brooding loner finds himself in the role of leading the mutant superhero team as they tried to prevent a future war between humans and mutants under the control of machines called the Sentinels through a vision from their comatose founder, Professor Charles Xavier.

Vivendi Entertainment Canada has recently released an limited edition of the first four of its 26 season one episodes -- including the exciting, three-part opener "Hindsight", in which Wolverine begins the task of bringing the X-Men back together, which includes Beast, Cyclops, Angel, Emma Frost, and Storm as they continue to protect a world that fears and hates them. The show has already become a hit on YTV and Nicktoons, and it was recently renewed for a second season of 26 episodes, currently in pre-production.

This show continues to respect the mythology of the X-Men: dealing with issues of prejudice and discrimination -- whether it is race, sexual orientation, or even being a mutant -- yet learning how to come to terms with being different by showing tolerance and understanding. Whereas Professor Xavier lives by the ideals of peace and nonviolence, Wolverine is lives by the motto of doing whatever it takes to get the job done, even if it means taking lives. But he does have humanity as well as morality -- never indifferent to the suffering of others. Though he maintains his tough exterior, he continues to have a sense of honor and loyalty, and proving himself as an mentor, a friend, an leader, and an hero.

The claws are out for Wolverine and the X-Men: Volume One, available only in Canada on DVD. You can also catch more episodes on Nicktoons, so check your local listings.
