Animated series centering on the X-men after the school was attacked by an unknown force and Professor X vanishes. Wolverine tries to bring the X-Men back together to find out what happened... See full summary »
Just as teenage mutant Kitty Pryde is welcomed to the X-Men, the team of mutant heroes are called into battle to prevent Magneto and his Brotherhood of Evil Mutants from crashing a comet into the Earth.
Professor Charles Francis Xavier, who has the mutant ability to read minds, searches for new mutants to train them how to use their powers for good and to prevent the mutants from harming themselves and others at his School for Gifted Youngsters. His opposition, Magneto "Master of Magnetism", is doing the same thing, but for evil purposes. He has made Mystique who is a shape-shifter, a principle of his high school to gather evil mutants to prepare them for war against non-mutants. The most interesting plot of the story is that all the heroes and villains attend the same high school. The classic battle of good vs. evil has begun again. Written by

Steve Gordon was never happy with his original Mystique design. Gordon felt that she had a very dated feel, but the clock was ticking and he just ran out of time. The second design was influenced by the X-Men (2000) film and also a better understanding of what Mystique needed to be as a character. Gordon admits if could have gotten away with a nude - look like in the film we would have, but Kids WB was not quite ready for that. He also tried to make her more physically imposing and look more like a female weight-lifter - more in the vein of an Adam Hughes character. However, that didn't go over very well so he settled for a more slimmed down version. See more »
When Jean and Kurt leave the mansion, McCoy and Xavier find them at the airport buying tickets to New York City; Bayville is less than an hour by car from the city, around two in bad traffic. There are no flights from anywhere near Bayville to New York City. See more »
Sure, it can not compare to the Fox animated series or the hit movie, but Evolution is pretty good anyway. It has an interesting new look for the X-Men. This show brings back the more popular characters and adds some that weren't a major part of the last show. And why should you expect the same character development? This is a NEW show with NEW people behind the scenes. This is a good show, give it a chance.
