Now lets have a look at the animations.

X-Men Gifted:
The X-Men are back with the express purpose of astonishing the world! But when pressure builds for the mutants to take an antidote to cure them and a new adversary arrives on the scene, will it derail their plans before they even get started?

X-Men Dangerous:
The tragic death of a student at the Xavier Institute reveals that a powerful enemy is working from inside the mansion to destroy the X-Men; an enemy who knows all their weaknesses and can predict their every move.

X-Men Torn:
Emma Frost s erratic behaviour has the X-Men spinning in a non-stop downward spiral. Will an unlikely union be the final straw? After secretly lying in wait for months, the new Hellfire Club makes its move!

X-Men Unstoppable:
The X-Men are off to protect the Earth from its destruction at the hands of the Breakworld. And when it s all over, nothing will ever be the same! In this fourth and final arc of Astonishing X-Men the mutants prove they are more than astonishing; they are unstoppable!

Iron Man Extremis:
Extremis, a 21st century of the super-soldier serum that turns its subjects into living weapons, has fallen into terrorist hands. Now Iron Man must change to fight this threat in ways that will forever alter Tony Stark.

Spider Woman Agent of S.W.O.R.D:
When Spider Woman is approached by a mysterious agent of S.W.O.R.D., the last thing she wants is another invasion of Skrulls. But she soon finds that the urge within her to inflict vengeance upon them is too intense to deny.

Black Panther:
T Challa is the Black Panther, the super genius warrior king of the African nation of Wakanda, the most technologically advanced nation on Earth. When Klaw, a deadly assassin, and his mercenaries threaten to invade his civilisation Black Panther must use his superhuman skills to prevail.

Thor & Loki Blood Brothers:
Thor & Loki are brothers and forever enemies. But why does Loki hate his brother? Is this master of mischief really the villain he s been branded? Loki s lust for power and his feud with Thor take on a new meaning in this resonant epic.

Wolverine Origin:
Wolverine is the best there is at what he does; although of course, what he does isn't very nice. But long before he was a member of the X-Men, a tormented experiment of the Weapon-X project, or even a savage bar brawler known as Logan - he was simply a young boy. What incredible forces created this man, the world's greatest killing machine? For years, Wolverine has searched desperately for answers from his past, from the wilds of the Canadian Wilderness to the teeming cities of Japan and beyond. And despite his perseverance and longing for the truth, he remains an enigma to himself and those around him. But, in this landmark event, Marvel reveals all: the birth and childhood of young James Howlett... the intriguing secrets of his family history... and the tragedy that changed everything. Welcome to the greatest story never told.

The Inhumans have always been one of Marvel’s most enduring oddities. A race of genetic freaks, they live secluded in their island kingdom of Attilan, preferring not to mix with the outside world. Even stranger, their genetic mutations are self-endowed; each Inhuman, as a coming-of-age ritual, endures exposure to the Terrigan Mists, a strange substance that imparts unearthly powers, some extraordinary, some monstrous. But now the kingdom of Attilan is under attack from without and within. Can the Royal Family, led by Black Bolt (who cannot speak for his voice carries the destructive power of an atom bomb) repel the foreign invaders who blast at their outer defense, as well as the internal threat of Black Bolt's brother, Maximus the Mad?

First thing to let you know is that each series is animated and styled very differently so if you do not like the style do not let that get in the way of trying the others. Spider-woman and the X-men series look like they have took the pages straight from the comics themselves and just added slight animation and sounds over the top, while Black Panther looks very sketched and the Thor and Loki series they have a more computer animated look and feel about them.

Most of the story lines in the animations are taken straight from the comics as you can see from the titles so you get to relive some of the greatest Marvel Comics and there storys on the small screen.

Please let us know which ones you have seen and how you rate them.
Currently they have released a box set with several of the series on so if you are new to all of these then this might be good for you.
