Our 300th Post!
Thanks to YouTuber Kids’ WB for hosting this video!
Since we are celebrating Captain America month here at S&FwM, what better episode than his appearance on the wonderful cartoon that is X-Men Evolution.
Unfortunately, Kitty only shows up for the opening credits but we get a fun Rogue and Nightcrawler with Wolverine episode.
There is still one episode I would like to post for Super Hero Squad, but I can’t find a video for it on YouTube so one day. It is the episode titled, “Night in the Sanctorum!” it has a picture of Kitty and Lockheed (amongst others). Captain America is in the episode as well. The only videos I can find are broken up over three parts and That isn’t ideal at nine minutes each. One of these days, hopefully, someone can post the full video.
Back to the episode at hand.
I really like seeing Rogue and Kurt together, we don’t get it as much in the comics. One of the nicer aspects of Evolution was that they were able to delve into their relationship.
I like how Wolverine and Captain America were WWII allies. They saved Magneto as a boy.
Magneto, in the present, finds the same technology that made Captain America the super solider and wants to use it on himself to become younger.
Episode ends on a bit of a sad note, apparently Cap never made it out of the war, he’s been in suspended animation ever since. At least SHIELD is keeping him safe. They are keeping him like a piece of furniture, tucked away in a room but at least no one can harm him there.
We get to see Nick Fury too, which is fun as well. One of the few episodes of Evolution that spotlights a non-mutant character.
Still waiting for X-Men Evolution Season Four to be released, no signs of it coming, so that’s disappointing.
I would also like to have Seasons One and Two released as a simple single box set, that would be nice. If they were willing to just release a Complete Series set, I wouldn’t mind selling my old ones for the new set. It couldn’t be more than $50.00 though, but I imagine they would go crazy with a hundred dollar price tag. Though if they can release a Complete Series, they should be able to make a separate fourth season set.
I can see them not wanting to do that, as it is a guarantee sell of Complete sets then. I just don’t like how I have nine DVDs on the shelf for the series, as it doesn’t look great.
The 90s X-Men Cartoon has a Captain America episode as well. That title is, Old Soldiers. I was going to post the video but there isn’t a good one on YouTube either. You can buy it on YouTube (not sure how that works) through MarvelOnDemand but who wants to do that?
Len Wein wrote that episode, the co-creator of Wolverine!
I’m also waiting for a Red Dawn video from the 90s as that is Illyana’s only appearance on the 90s cartoon – or in animation. Actually, she apparently shows up for a second in the episode, Time Fugitives. Which I don’t remember so I will have to look into that. Red Dawn is her only speaking episode.
She is also mentioned in an episode of Evolution, explaining why Colossus is working for Magneto.

Thanks everybody for all the support! I would never have envision doing 300 straight posts much less being able to actually pull off Event Months!
I can now announce the next Event Month! Which, really, shouldn’t surprise anyone what it is going to be.
May 2014 is going to be … DAYS OF FUTURE PAST!!! Just in time for the movie!
