8Ms. Marvel

Feature Detail

Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel heads to the big screen next year, but under her previous moniker, Ms. Marvel, she made a single appearance in X-Men: The Animated Series. In the episode “A Rogue’s Tale,” we learn how Rogue gained the powers of Ms. Marvel (voiced by Roscoe Handford), which ultimately led to her falling into a coma.  

7Deadpool

Feature Detail

Later this year, Deadpool will headline his own adult-oriented cartoon series on FXX, but his first animated adventures took place on X-Men: The Animated Series. However, despite appearing in three episodes, Deadpool never actually spoke. His first appearance was a flashback in the episode “Deadly Reunions.” Then, in “Whatever It Takes,” Morph shape-shifts into the Merc with a Mouth. Finally, in “The Phoenix Saga: Part 2: The Dark Shroud,” Professor X uses his abilities to force a projection of Deadpool into attacking Wolverine.
