I like the series but I hate the main actor's face when he plays Dream. I just don't know why his super pouty face makes me want to punch him.

It's more pronounced in the stills in the promo material, didn't bother me much in the actual show.

I was watching some clips from the original X-Men cartoon and it's pretty hilarious how bad the action usually is, mostly because they couldn't actually show anything serious on morning TV (and probably a low budget). They just kind of grab people, stand there for a minute, then throw them. Wolverine threatens people with his claws then immediately retracts them.

It's pretty funny. Reminds you that it was definitely originally marketed for kids.

The new one...is not.
I have been watching the first season over the last week or so. I'm on episode seven(?), I think.

All I can say is that I clearly have been out of the loop on the X-Men universe for about 40 years, and can't remember much of what I did know, back then. But the show is really good.

From what I remember years ago, it was even that way in the comics. Every once in a while they would show Wolverine impaling someone with his claws, but the horrific damage a swipe from those claws would inflict was never shown (that I remember). I never really thought about it until I got to Japan and stumbled across a manga called Hokuto No Ken (Fist of the North Star was what I was called in English), which had super graphic violence (you can Google it for yourself, LOL--not sure what the forum censor will allow).

90’s comics became excessively violent for a while. Even the mainstream stuff. A lot of it is toned down these days unless you are reading stuff geared towards that market.

I use to have cards with graphics like that ^

All the various marvel characters, a fat thick of cards it was. Now I wonder where it all went.
