The world famous X-Men have been anime-ified.
Anime studio Madhouse has revealed the first footage of its take on the X-Men. Like most anime series, it takes a more detailed look at the X-Men and their abilities.
The footage shows Cyclops blasting through some rocks, Storm bring down a blizzard on a cruise ship (?), Beast hopping around, and other characters like Wolverine and Professor X. The basic storyline is as follows:
The X-Men are reunited following the death of a teammate, and are summoned by Charles Xavier to Japan following the abduction of Hisako Ichiki (Armor). There, they confront the U-Men, a lunatic cult that steals and transplants mutant organs to further strengthen their own army, and the battle for justice is on.
The X-Men anime is one of four properties Marvel and Madhouse are working on with some guidance from popular comic book scribe Warren Ellis. The other properties include Iron Man, Blade, and Wolverine.
All four series are said to include 12 episodes, each 30 minutes long. G4TV signed a deal to bring the four to its network, either dubbed or subtitled, in 2011.

We assume 20th Century Fox didn't debut the trailer for the upcoming X-Men: First Class during the Super Bowl because it didn't want the thing to get lost among all those superheroes like Captain America and Thor. But based on what we've just seen, it had nothing to worry about—because Marvel's mutants have blown us away!
The trailer, which premiered over on the film's Facebook page, gives us our first look at Professor X and his team of mutants—and how their relationship with Magneto went so teribly wrong.

Great, can't wait to grab a beer with Wolverine at Zeitgeist.
From the article -
"San Francisco is now a mutant sanctuary," X-Men group leader Cyclops proclaims, near the end of Issue 500. "Any of you - and your family or loved ones - are invited to join us here, and know safety and protection our kind has never known."
There are no cable cars in the first issue, but the artists did include a KRON TV news truck and a panel where the iconic mutant Wolverine walks through Noe Valley. The heroes make their base in the concrete bunkers beneath the Marin Headlands and join the protest of a controversial art installation at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
