The American television channel G4 and the production company Marvel announced on Wednesday that G4 will premiere Marvel's anime series X-Men on October 21 with Scott Porter as the voice of Cyclops. This summer, G4 has been running Marvel's Iron Man and Wolverine anime. G4 will launch the 12 half-hour weekly episodes of X-Men on Friday, October 21 at 11:00 p.m. ET.
The story of X-Men revolves around the title mutant team being reunited after a death of a teammate. The members search in Japan for a missing teenage girl, Hisako Ikichi. "There, they encounter the fanatical and anti-mutant group, U-MEN, and discover what was important enough for Xavier to bring them back together."
Marvel's Blade anime will be released through the same partnership with G4 this coming winter.
