A Visual Comparison Of Cartoon X-Men Versus Their Live-Action Equivalents

June 6, 2014


This is a visual comparison of a ton of cartoon X-Men characters and their live-action equivalents. I learned a lot. Mostly about how the live-action ones look way more like real people than the cartoon ones. The cartoon ones look like they were drawn. "You really are a f***ing idiot, you know that?" Better than anyone except my parents.

Keep going for a bunch more.








Thanks to carey, who has never called me out in the comments for forgetting to finish a shoutout. UNLIKE SOME PEOPLE.

    I believe that Warpath wasn't actually in TAS and that it's his brother, Thunderbird that's shown here.

  • Leon Benjamin Archer

    Beast looks like a beast. And Patrick Stuart can play whatever he wants, he IS professor X.

    It's interesting how many of the comic characters have the same open top head pieces that allow their hair to show through. Did they run out of costume ideas at one point?

  • Brandon

    For some of them they could have used better pictures from the movies.

  • Brandon

    I don't know the names of some of these characters.

  • Justin Griffin

    I see the 90s X-Men cartoon as how I imagine these characters to be. When the first live action X-Men movie came out I compared it to that show. A ton of the casting and makeup is excellent but I still see the X-Men as that cartoon. No contest, it's part of my childhood.

    The ilk of hollywood even hangs a shadow over it, if you want to know how I truly feel. lol

    worst :

    Bolivar Trask

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    Juggernaut also looked a bit silly compared to the giant the original was.

  • Harold_Finch

    best they could do, the only thing they got wrong was the accent. at least you knew it was him lol

  • bawb

    Where is ShadowCat? (Kitty Pryde)

  • Richelle Howes

  • Dennis Leyva

    Nope, that's Moira Mactaggert...

  • JJtoob

    LOL Lord Tyrion doesn't like mutants.

  • Sam Bacile

  • Ken Brown

    The one above night crawler is multiple man, Jamie maddrox

  • Matteo.L.Feo

    Henry Peter Gyrich and Madrox the Multiple Man

  • Closet Nerd

    Just noticed the amount of females using guns vs the amount of males using guns. Females don't have much superpower beyond the super ability of handling a hand gun do they?
    .....just sayin

  • McGarnagle

    Well, Moira MacTaggert doesn't have powers, and Silver Fox and Mystique don't have anything in the way of offensive powers, so it makes sense that they'd carry guns.

    Also, lol 'females'.

  • Closet Nerd

    There's too much blue. I'm sad now.
    ....just sayin

  • aint seen nothin yet
