I think these motion comics are pretty dumb.

I would never pay for something like this.

LOL! This is terrible.

Kind of reminds me of the 60s Marvel animated shows except they had an excuse to be cheap.

It won't be enough for me to watch and get into, and Obviously it's not better than a real motion cartoon, BUT it's not bad if you think of it as reading a comic book. Only it does move a lil bit, and you don't have to read it.

And hey, at least it actually has some real Xmen in it unlike some movie out there i won't name....

@JawBreaking ... I second that

The story seems interesting, but the animation is difficult to watch.  I think I'll pass.

I love these. I watched the first  Astonishing Xmen motion comic on Netflix and I thought it was pretty good. There was a similar Iron Man motion comic on Netflix as well and that was intense. I hope they put this one Netflix also.

 I saw the Iron-man Extremis motion comic on Netflix too.  I think it's a cool way to get these stories if you don't want to shell out the money for the comics and are already paying for Netflix.  I think they're nice too in the respect that they're like audio book versions of the comics.  Would I prefer an honest to goodness animated production, sure, but these are nice for what they are.

I love it. Yeah it would be great if it was a fully animated cartoon version but this is a way of doing it on the cheap yet add sound and a little more drama to the material. Like ElBaz said similar to those old Marvel toons which I adored as a kid and would shell out in a second to have them on dvd too just for old times sake.

I'm getting it.

Wow. I was excited until I saw it was more of this motion comic crap and not actually animation. They can keep it.
