Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

One of the first titles we watched when Disney+ launched last year (aside from “Gargoyles“) was “X-Men: The Animated Series.” Probably the single-best adaptation of any of the original comics, this cartoon remains a pinnacle of writing, vocal performances, and story pacing in the superhero genre. It’s also something we’ve been curious to see if Disney+ would jump back into production on.

Some of the key members of “X-Men: The Animated Series” X-team

As luck would have it, series director and producer Larry Houston JUST talked about this very thing on a reunion panel during Wizard World’s 2020 virtual experience.

While this is far from a confirmation that a revisit or reboot will happen, Houston does clear up those rumors from other less reputable outlets.


“We’ve had talks, but that’s about it.
We’ve made conversation and it’s up to them to make the decision, but we’ve let them know that we’re all available for whatever they want to do in the future.
Whatever they wanted to do if we had all the original team … if we could do a special, a one-off episode, or a five-part episode. That’s what I would come out of retirement for.”


The best part of that quote? “If we had all the original team.” That right there gives us hope and faith, and a willingness to see, if this ever happens, what Houston and co would come up with.

Would you want to see a continuation of “X-Men: The Animated Series” on Disney+?
