Wolverine and the X-Men is an American cartoon series by Marvel Animation. It is the fourth animated adaptation of the X-Men characters, the other three being Pryde of the X-Men, X-Men, and X-Men: Evolution. The show began airing in the United States on January 23, 2009.[1] On September 6, 2008, in Canada, Teletoon began airing Wolverine and the X-Men starting from the beginning. All the episodes have finished airing in Mexico, Brazil, and Portugal, and are no longer running in the United States on Nicktoons, in Canada on YTV, in Australia on ABC, and in Singapore on okto.

In the United States and Canada, the series is shown in full screen (4:3 aspect ratio), while in the UK, it is shown in its original widescreen format. Another difference between the broadcasts is that the UK version is edited for violent content, with the 17th episode, "Code of Conduct", not airing at all as a result.

A mysterious huge explosion destroys the X-Mansion at the moment that Wolverine was leaving. Professor X and Jean Grey are mysteriously missing, and perhaps gone for good, causing the X-Men to disband. Beast is examining the remains of the explosion and finds out that Professor X was the target. However, one year later, an anti-mutant government agency called the Mutant Response Division (or M.R.D. for short) hunt Wolverine and arrest a family that helped him.

In the end, Wolverine decides to find the other X-Men and fight the MRD.

In the future Professor X and the future X-Men are freed by Wolverine, and together they take up a fight against Master Mold. Trivia: Magneto's reprogramming of the Sentinels is very reminiscent of a similar event in Ultimate X-Men, whereby a massive fleet of the Sentinels were sent to Genosha, but Magneto reprogrammed them, and sent them to attack Washington, D.C.[15]

The X-Men, MRD and S.H.I.E.L.D. fight against Magneto's Sentinels. Meanwhile, the Inner Circle reveals to Scott that Emma and the Stepford Cuckoos were the ones responsible for setting in motion the events that would lead to the destruction of the mansion, Xavier's twenty-year coma and the eventual extraction of the Phoenix Force from Jean's mind and body. Upon the successful transmission of the Phoenix Force from Jean and into the bodies of all five Stepford Cuckoos, the possessed girls are then instructed by Sebastian Shaw to destroy the Sentinels, the X-Men and Genosha, an action which was completely unknown to Emma whose initial plan was to both locate and destroy the cosmic entity before it could reach maturity and bring forth unparalleled global destruction. In the wake of her regretable actions, Emma attempts to redeem herself in the eyes of the X-Men, especially Scott, by ultimately sacrificing herself in order to successfully destroy the Phoenix Force entity. In the aftermath of the carnage, Magneto is banished from Genosha for his radical actions while his eldest daughter, Wanda, assumes authority over the destroyed island and its inhabitants, alongside her sister Lorna, in an attempt to rebuild from the demolished remains of her father's mistakes. From the future, Xavier informs the X-Men that their mission was a success and that the bleak, sentinel-run world has now been avoided. However, there is a new and far more formidable future that has taken its place: the Age of Apocalypse.
