Marvel’s cartoon universe (past and present) coming to Netflix

In my now two decade span of comic fandom, cartoon representations of my favorite Marvel characters have always been a much beloved part of the journey.  According to The Mary Sue, over the next few months Marvel will be chucking nearly its entire cartoon library onto Netflix’s instant streaming service.  All three of us here at Comicdom Wrecks! are Netflix subscribers and we’ll likely benefit from it.  Except for J.R., but he’s a DC nerd so he deserves what he gets.  (Note: JR owns the entire run of the Batman Animated Series and I love him for it.)

Cartoons that Marvel will be providing include:

  • The Incredible Hulk (1996-97)
  • Spider-Man Unlimited (1999-2001)
  • Iron Man: Extremis – Marvel Knights Animation (2010)
  • Astonishing X-Men: Gifted – Marvel Knights Animation (2010)
  • Spider-Woman: Agent of the S.W.O.R.D. – Marvel Knights Animation (2010)
  • Fantastic Four: World’s Greatest Heroes (2006)
  • Silver Surfer (1998)
  • Black Panther – Marvel Knights Animation (2010)
  • Iron Man: Armored Adventures Season 1 (2009)
  • X-Men (1992)
  • Spider-Man (1967)
  • Marvel Action Hour: Iron Man (1994-96)
  • The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes! Season 1 (2010)
  • X-Men Evolution (2000-3)
  • Spider-Man (1994-‘98)
  • Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends (1981)
  • Spider-Man (1981-‘82)
  •  Iron Man (1966)
  • Thor (1966)
  • Captain America (1966)
  • Hulk (1966)
  • Sub-Mariner (1966)

The only ones that I remember that aren’t on the list are the mid ’90s Iron Man and Fantastic Four cartoons (which were awesome) and the ill-conceived Avengers: United They Stand that featured Ant-Man as team leader and lacked Captain America, Iron Man and Thor.  Oh, and Wolverine and the X-Men whose cancellation I’m still pissed off about.

But really it’s all about the X-Men and Spider-Man cartoons from the ’90s.  Admit it.
