Pryde Of The X-Men: The Animated Adventure
So what could have been if the 1989 X-Men animated pilot had been picked up for series? Well we can only dream of the X-Men going up against the various schemes of the Brotherhood Of Evil Mutants from week to week. Or other X-Men such as Angel, Beast, and more joining the fight! We did of course get the fantastic X-Men animated series a few years later in 1992 that was only marginally influenced by this pilot. But from this pilot we did get the great Konami coin-op game that you played in arcades! That's right that huge 4-player machine featuring the X-Men in a hack and slash level by level adventure was influenced by "Pryde Of The X-Men". The game went on to find a place in X-Men fans hearts everywhere and people are still playing it today on X-Box Live, PC emulators, and other ROMs. It is not known if the game was already in the works to tie in with the possible animated series but unlikely since it did not see release until 1992 but it defiantly used the character designs and influence from the animation special.
