This 1993 Sega Genesis Commercial For X-Men Was Pretty Excellent!

X-Men - Sega Genesis
In 1993 I had been a comic book fan for many, many years and one of my favorite titles from the 60+ I was collecting a month was naturally the X-Men. Though I found I had a bit of a problem on my hands as the then upcoming game was only being released on the Sega Genesis…being a complete Nintendoid meant I didn’t have the Genesis but I was lucky enough that one of my best friends did and that is how we passed one whole weekend with pizza, soda, and 18+ hours of X-Men gaming.

I do not however recall ever seeing this TV commercial for the game, I learned about it’s release thanks to Gamepro, it’s a pretty excellent commercial though!
