X-Men '97 and Ms. Marvel Achieve Top Ratings on Rotten Tomatoes as Marvel's Best TV Shows

Following its highly praised conclusion, X-Men '97 has equaled a benchmark on Rotten Tomatoes that once belonged exclusively to an unexpectedly praised Marvel series.

It's confirmed that X-Men '97 now stands as the top-rated Marvel television series on Rotten Tomatoes, sharing this acclaim with another, potentially underappreciated Marvel series.

Both X-Men '97 and Ms. Marvel boast an impressive 98% Fresh rating from critics on RT, with X-Men achieving a higher viewer score of 94% compared to Ms. Marvel's 80%.

This lauded series picks up the narrative from X-Men: The Animated Series, focusing on our beloved mutants navigating a reality without Charles Xavier. The absence of Professor X is only the beginning of their challenges, with much more at risk. Some reviewers have labeled the series as Marvel's finest in recent memory, appreciating its detachment from the MCU. The series has received the nod for a second and third season.

Ms. Marvel, launched on Disney Plus in 2022, introduces us to a 16-year-old Avengers enthusiast, Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), who discovers her unique abilities. This miniseries lasted for a single season before transitioning Kamala into The Marvels, sharing the screen with Brie Larson as Captain Marvel and Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau.

A shared trait between the two highest-rated shows is Kamala Khan's mutant status. She marks the entrance of the first mutant into the MCU, with Wolverine following her lead in the anticipated Deadpool & Wolverine movie. It's intriguing to see mutant-focused narratives leading the pack.

X-Men '97’s first season is available for streaming on Disney Plus. For further insights, explore our detailed breakdown of the X-Men '97 post-credits scene.
