Marvel appears to be ushering in a new era of projects with X-Men ‘97 garnering wonderful reviews from critics and fans alike. The animated show is a continuation of the 1997 animated series that outlined the adventures of the mutant gang in the 90s. They are forever entrenched in the battle against humans who see them as a threat to mankind, while the X-Men simultaneously value their duty to protect the world from otherworldly threats. Even though the episodes are being released weekly, there is no doubt over the popularity it has garnered.

Tom Hiddleston in Loki

Fans deem Loki and Moon Knight to be unbeatable shows, given their love for Tom Hiddleston and Oscar Isaac. However, it goes beyond that because these two shows proved that the MCU has not given up all hope. Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight deals with mental health issues without hampering the action and superhero aspects of the storytelling. They treated the hero as a flawed person who aspired to work on himself.

On the other hand, Loki introduced us to the Time Variance Authority that will play a central role in the upcoming Deadpool and Wolverine, and paving the way for more intervention in the future. The burgeoning multiverse will demand the collective powers of all heroes. It appears the animated appeal of X-Men ‘97 is shining brighter than the rest since it has overtaken all previously fan-favorite shows to sit at the number 1 spot in terms of Rotten Tomatoes rating.

Other Highest-Rated MCU Shows

Agatha Harkness

Closely behind X-Men ‘97 is Ms. Marvel with a 98% rating and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. with an impressive 95% on Rotten Tomatoes. Wandavision and Marvel’s Daredevil are not far behind since the two shows also changed the way fans perceived Marvel’s ability to make television series. Wandavision propelled fans’ expectations to another level with the intelligent use of technology with a progressive story-telling style.

Marvel is making Daredevil canon to the MCU and bringing the worlds together seamlessly. Apart from that, fans are looking forward to Agatha, a series that will further the story established in Wandavision. With many such interesting projects to look forward to, fans are hoping Marvel comes back with a bang and starts paying attention to what the fans want.
