    I just found this on bleedingcool.com and it linked to a post at Marvels web site.

    @Igenius I thought so too, but Extremis isn't half bad. Is it "animation"? I don't know, but it isn't any worse than a lot of stuff out there, the story is good, the art is pretty: it's worth an hour and a half of your time.

    @Igenius Perhaps not but the road leads to the 90s X-Men which is some of the best news I had gotten.

    I was able to add the m yesterday. And Mike, i do agree with you.
  3.  (9813.9)
    Me too Mike, and not just because I make them too.

    OOPS my Bad - MARVEL didn't LIE they said this is a privilege for U.S. residents only (but DAMN the FLY holds up I doin' it again tonight!)

    I love motion comics on my TV. I think they are really trippy and weird. You can put them on mute and play witch house music behind it, and it fits pretty well.

    I'm going to check out the Astonishing X-men mo-com, just to give it a try. I read the comics when they came out, but usually the voice acting on the motion comics bugs me...
  7.  (9813.13)
    I just finished Astonishing X-men and Iron Man: Extremis. Marvel is definitely getting better at the motion comics. But I'm still not sure they beat the “real thing.”

    Oh, wow:

    Iron Man (1966)
    Thor (1966)
    Captain America (1966)
    Hulk (1966)
    Sub-Mariner (1966)


    I watched those on their FIRST RUN, when I was maybe four or five.

    Someday I'll have to interpret the lyrics to the Hulk theme music for me. There's one line I could never figure out.

    I'm jealous the only Marvel Property Netflix Canada has is IRON MAN 2 which I ain't gonna watch.

    @ mercurialblonde & james puckett- I really liked watching the ASTONISHING X_MEN motion comic (on youtube), I thought it was mesmerizing and trippy also. I'm surprised people have problems with it. They are what they is why not enjoy?

    They are what they is why not enjoy?

    Because sometimes they are very amateurish CGI tacked on to a comic book. Iron Man was much better than X-Men in that respect. But when a sudden break in continuity of CGI quality distracts from the story the entire work suffers.

    I was very impressed with the Black Panther motion comic, both the comic content and the stop motion. Some of it was very effective.

    Treating Wakanda as a superpower and butting heads with U.S. and other countries. The political intrique adds just the right element to make Black Panther unique and pretty bad ass. Some people might have trouble with the way the U.S.A. was portrayed though.

    @beamish, there was an issue streaming to the Wii which Netflix has now resolved.

    @Boodoffstage, the Black Panther one was more of a "real" animated series produced by BET for actual television.

    I found the "animation" (apart from Black Panther) to be pretty sub-par and sometimes downright laughable. It's a very poor way to adapt these stories to another medium.
