Marvel may not be producing a film out of their own studio in 2009, but it should still be a great year for their most popular mutant superhero, Wolverine. In addition to Fox's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, starring Hugh Jackman, there's also the new animated series Wolverine and the X-Men, and thanks to MTV we now have some behind-the-scenes clips and character models to check out.

When an explosive event shatters the lives of the X-Men and takes away their mentor, the beaten heroes walk away from it all. But then they're given a rare glimpse into the future, and see a world in utter ruin, ruled by mutant hunting Sentinels. A world that spiraled out of control because the X-Men had given up. So now the most legendary of all X-Men takes the lead - Wolverine! Reuniting these broken heroes, Wolverine embarks on the ultimate mission - to prevent the world's destruction. To rescue us from ourselves. To save the future.

Wolverine and the X-Men will be airing on Nickelodeon beginning in January of 2009.
