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

This show's romantic storylines are one of those areas where the network really boxed the writers in because of Batman Beyond (1999). The writers thought this kind of character development was crucial and consistent with the fact that these X-Men were teenagers in high school, but the WB network felt that 6-10 year old boys (their intended audience) would find such fair just "icky." Often, the crew had to slip stuff like that in visually without writing it into the script, or it wouldn't have made it into the show. They kept pushing it, and the WB network kept saying no, even though they knew that it was popular with their "tween" audience 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 »
Despite my limited knowledge of X-Men--or perhaps because of it--I love this show. The animation, voices and music are GREAT, and it is not from Japan (no offense to anime fans). I love how Nightcrawler and Beast look. And to those who said that characters like Beast were being ignored, the episode "Beast of Bayville" proves otherwise and also proves that the series is living up to its name and evolving, which takes time. I hope the evolution continues.
