Back in 2012-13, for Marvel's 75th anniversary in 2014, Powerhouse Animation (Castlevania, Seis Manos) approached Marvel with an anthology series, known as Marvel Era. In a 10-part thread by Powerhouse's CEO, he details how each short would have covered various eras of Marvel history, with sample animation to show. Some stories covered Captain America, the X-Men,The Punisher, Deadpool, and Heroes for Hire.

However, as Brad Graber rationalized, this was at a time when the studio wasn't as notable. The project never really got off the ground at Marvel.

Oh wow, this looks amazing! Feels like it could've been a Marvel equivalent to DC Showcase :D.

After WB did the anniversary shorts for Superman and Batman and then Marvel was celebrating their 75th anniversary, I really hope they would have done something like this so it's interesting to see that it was actually on the table. A real shame that they let stuff like that pass by.

I was personally rooting for Titmouse to do it at the time after they did that really awesome opening cinematic for the Marvel Heroes game, that highlighted the major origin stories of the Marvel Universe.

As I look at this now, I had seen the little snippet of the X-Men before but didn't know where it came from.
