X-Men 97 Theme

Shuki composed the theme for the X-Men animated series in 1997. That theme was recently featured in the blockbuster film Dr. Strange. ScreenRant made note of the song choice, which has delighted fans globally:

One of the coolest pieces of music used in Doctor Strange 2 is the crowd-pleasing “X-Men ’97 Theme” composed by Haim Saban and Shuki Levy for the animated X-Men series that ran from 1992 to 1997. Not only is the song extremely uptempo compared to some of the melancholic musical scores, it also plays directly to the nostalgia of fans of Marvel going back 25 years.

A lot of time and effort clearly went into choosing what songs to use on behalf of fan service as well as thematic continuity, and the “X-Men ’97 Theme” has momentous drumlines and a triumphant sound that couldn’t make Charles Xavier’s (Patrick Stewart) sudden entrance in the story any better.
