A Look Back At Pryde of The X-Men

I was scrolling though Youtube a while back and this came up on my suggested views. I honestly could not believe my luck, as a kid I absolutely adored the VHS of this. I would go out and rent it once a month and watch it over and over again.  Pryde of the X-Men was an television pilot originally broadcast in 1988 on the Marvel Action Universe television block, nothing really came of it but it later served as the basis for Konami’s X-Men arcade game

It is a bloody weird show, featuring Cyclops, Storm, Professor X, Dazzler, Nightcrawler, Colossus and oddly enough in a strange bit of foreshadowing Australian Wolverine. The fast paced show see’s the X-Men infiltrate Asteroid M to take on the Brotherhood Of Evil Mutants comprised of Magneto, Toad, Pyro, Blob and The White Queen. 

It has not aged well, especially compared to the 90’s X-Men cartoon and X-Men Evolution. Still it is a delightful little watch and I hope you all enjoy.
