Pryde of the X-Men
March 24, 2019

After hearing about Pryde of the X-Men, a Marvel pilot that aired in 1989 and a precursor to the 90's animated series, I was intrigued to see that this may well also been the inspiration for Konami's 6-Player Arcade that was made later on as well. The artwork from said pilot and comics at that time are similar, so are the character designs and number of heroes and villains featured, all except Toad that is. Its quite obvious. This may not be seen as much but for a fan of comics and games like me it is quite something to store in my brain which would be used for far better things than being an obsessed fan.

Another little bit of theory is that in this pilot Wolverine was voiced with an Australian accent while the live action films he would be voiced by Australian actor Hugh Jackman. Coincidence?
