The history of Animated versions of Marvel Comics characters has been rather dismal. From the ancient original series where the writers didn't really know the difference between Spider-man and Superman and the background artists were obviously on serious drugs, through the 80's Spider-man and his amazing friends, to the MTV cartoon that was worse than watching someone else play a video game, to recent developments, it's been a roller-coaster ride. And there have been many other animated characters/series, though I think only The Fantastic Four have had as many itterations. And the only cross-polination of series I know of was in the early 90s, when Spider-man went to visit the X-Men. (OK, the same voice is used for the Iron Man anime movie and the Ultimate Avengers movies). I was thinking the other night--wouldn't it be interesting to have Bruce Timm and his team put together a cartoon series? Maybe they'd be able to do right what has been a very hit&miss proposition? Maybe provide a coherent vision?
