Hulu's Animated Series Include an X-Men/Marvel Heroes 'Crossover' Show

The first signs of the upcoming merger between Disney and Fox are starting to show. Among Marvel's new adult animated series with Hulu, Tigra & Dazzler will feature Marvel Television's first crossover between an X-Men character and a Marvel hero. Further, merry mutant Dazzler will cross over with Marvel Cinematic Universe-adjacent Howard the Duck in The Offenders.

Notably, the four Marvel adult animated series announced earlier today were not confirmed as part of the MCU. However, to date, there has been no crossover between Fox's X-Men properties and Marvel Studios' characters. Though Marvel Television helms X-Men-based properties like The Gifted and Legion, the characters from those series have not crossed over into MCU series like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and vice versa. So, regardless of the Hulu series' relationship with the MCU, the Tigra & Dazzler team-up is a first for Marvel Television.

Alison Blair's Dazzler made her Marvel Comics debut in 1980's Uncanny X-Men #130 as a mutant-turned-pop star. With her mutant ability to convert sound into light and energy, she used her powers to create light shows. These powers also led her to join the X-Men, the Avengers, Fantastic Four and more.

Tigra, on the other hand, is an Avenger through-and-through. Thanks to her powers from the Cat People, she has been a member of both the Avengers and the West Coast Avengers, as well as Fantastic Four, New Warriors and Lady Liberators. She was introduced as The Cat in 1972's Claws of the Cat #1 before she became Tigra in 1974's Giant-Sized Creatures #1.

According to the official Tigra & Dazzler series description,

In Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show, two woke Super Heroes and best friends, Tigra and Dazzler, fight for recognition among powered people who make up the eight million stories in Los Angeles. “Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show” comes from writers Erica Rivinoja and Chelsea Handler, with Rivinoja, Handler, and Jeph Loeb serving as Executive Producers.

Airing on Hulu, Marvel's Tigra & Dazzler does not yet have a release date.
