Might I ask how TAS was badly directed (apart from the tradition of inexplicably turning Magneto over to Xavier's side?)

When I read comics from that era, and see Cyclops, I hear Norm Spencer. When I see Wolverine drawn in the style used for TAS, I hear Cal Dodd. When I look at Beast in almost any version, I hear George Buza.
Evo, on the other hand? It was very badly written in its first season, comical portrayal of Wolverine in the first episode and rushed intros, didn't seem truly serious as a show until season 2.
There is no such thing as a dumb question. Only a dumb answer.

Joker: "There's nothing mere about THAT mortal!"
