In order to prevent all of humankind from being turned into mutants, the X-Men, the Brotherhood, S.H.I.E.L.D., The Acolytes, Angel, Spyke, Havok, and the New Mutants all join forces to save humanity ...
After an explosion at the school, the X-Men went their seperate ways. But they must unite once again under the leadership of Wolverine to prevent an inevitable war while also dealing with present problems.
X-Men, still grieving over the death of Phoenix (Jean Grey), are investigating a case of a missing mutant girl in Northern Japan. This leads them to a mysterious virus that turns mutants into monsters. U-Men and the Inner Circle want it.
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

Don't. You just did the wrong thing for the right reason.
So what now?
I'm going back with the X-men. I don't care what you do...
*Sure* you don't...

As a fan of the other X-Men series from the 90s which is amazing and excellent, I was thoroughly disappointed by X-Men (D)Evolution. Why? It is taking a series for teens and adults, and turning it into childish, boring formulaic crap. X-Men kids in high school, and the villain is the principal, oh no! And they fight the same group of enemy mutants, who are also high school students each week. It's absurd, and a horrific insult to a classic, legendary franchise. After all the great plot arcs and challenging topics not dodged and amusing dialogue and well drawn characters with explored back stories from the other X-Men series (1992-1997) I simply cannot watch this Devolution tripe with it's vapid lines, eye roll inducing catch phrases, shallow characters, pointless episodes, and poor animation. It's a disgrace, and an insult to X-Men fans who all deserve better.
