Was it THAT long ago??

Today I was talking to Josh about the old X-Men comic books and X-Men: Evolution. We've been talking about the plotlines, and I've been hoping they'd do some of the older ones. I'm actually very happy with the cartoon -- despite all the changes they've made to the canon, they've still done an excellent job with it. And I just adore getting to see Kitty Pryde in one of the cartoons. I've been hoping they'll do some of the Illyana plotlines, and I think, with some of the setup that's been done, that there is a good chance they will (yay!).

So as we're walking, I think to myself that they're doing the stuff from the early 80s, when I started reading (I was 15 in 1983) and I blurt out, "They're doing the stuff from 20 years ago."

Then I stop. 20 years? TWENTY years? Eep! Damn, its hard to realize that I can now refer to my high school life as 20 years ago.

No kidding. If they don't do Dark Phoenix, I'll be bummed. It's been quite a surprise, despite, as you mention, the changes in the canon.

Actually, I have to admit, I feel like I've seen the Dark Phoenix saga done enough. I wouldn't mind if they skipped that one. On the other hand, I'd love to see them do the "Jean goes insane" saga with the White Queen controlling her. Or I'd love to see them do the Brood. But I doubt they'll do that one because well, it IS still a kids show and the Brood gets pretty damned dark in theme. I still remember Kitty and Peter sitting together and her crying because she was only 15 and didn't want to die. And I'm remembering this 18 years later. *smiles*
