A team of mutant superheroes fight for justice and human acceptance in the Marvel Comics universe.
This X-Men series is one of the first animated shows to be serialized, with each of the episodes continuing into the next, although most of them also stand alone as separate shows. After "The Phoenix Saga" aired, the remaining episodes that aired were not in the correct continuity order. Because the bulk of episodes were being animated with many different studios, the writers decided not to continue with linear storylines like the first two seasons, as many would likely air as soon as they became available. Continuity problems became so bad that X-Men: No Mutant Is an Island (1996) and episode X-Men: Longshot (1996) did not air for two years after they should have, thanks to animation quality issues. "No Mutant is an Island" was *supposed* to explain Jean Grey's return, setting up the Dark Phoenix Saga.
The man doesn't break a sweat against Apocalypse or Magneto. So - so what nails him? A pine tree!
In "Reunion", Professor X's gloves disappear for one shot when he is chained to the wall.
In the opening credits, a roll call of the X-Men occurs, with each member showing off their particular ability.
The first season of X-Men, when aired on FoxKids, featured CGI character profile models during the end credits. Later airings replaced these credits with those similar to season 2. When the fourth year episodes began, short clips from past episodes were filtered into the credits for the original airings. When the final year's worth of episodes aired, the series recieved slightly altered intro animation and music. When reruns of the series moved over to UPN for a short while, all of the aired episode intros and credits were replaced with brand animation, featuring Cable among the regular X-Men.
