The 25 best things about the 'X-Men' cartoon


In heartwarming news, the latest Batman, Christian Bale, found out that an 8-year-old named Zach was a huge fan of the Caped Crusader and was, unfortunately, in the hospital undergoing treatment for cancer. Bale and Zach chatted about Batman on the phone for almost 10 minutes and you can listen to their conversation in a video that was recently posted.

We loved the “X-Men” cartoon from the 1990s, and apparently a lot of other people did, too, since it’s the longest-running Marvel Comics animated show ever. BuzzFeed collected the 25 best things about the show, from Professor X’s hovering wheelchair to some of the best (and goofiest) lines.

With some creativity and time, people make some cool stuff. Topless Robot recently featured Patrick Priebe, who used some simple mechanics, plastic and a high-powered laser to make a gauntlet similar to that of Iron Man. When he flexes his wrist the right way, the laser pops out and activates. Pretty cool stuff. He also sells his designs.
