A secret government project to create genetic mutants results in them being released into the general population. One of the scientists responsible, Adam, has sworn to try and help them, while his co-partner, Mason Eckhart, plans on using the project for his own ends. Adam assembles four mutants and forms the group "Mutant X" to help mutants everywhere, and oppose Eckhart. Written by
In 2001, 20th Century Fox sued Marvel Entertainment, stating "Mutant X" violated Fox's film rights for X-Men (2000). As a result, several changes to the premise of the series were made to distance it from the movie and its comic-book source material. Originally, the "mutant" characters were to have worn black costumes and used codenames (just as in X-Men), and Adam was to have been a wealthy mutant with the surname of Xero (similar to Professor Xavier). The show's logo was also changed from its initial design, which featured the "X" behind the word "Mutant," which resembled the logo used in trailers and TV ads for X-Men (2000) ("X" behind "Men").

I dont know why i watched the pilot of this show, maybe because of the 'x-men' fever hadnot faded yet, but i didnt expect this show to be quality... and to tell the truth the pilot wasnot brilliant. But it was FUN... which is something most tv programmes lack (especially over here in the UK. The episodes that followed werent any better - the acting was a bit shaky (it was obvious the actors were chosen on their looks but that didnt matter), and the script/plotlines werent as good as other shows (and their powers seemed a little useless). This show was trashy... but was oh so much fun which kept me hooked.
But then the show took a break, and returned a few weeks later... and had it changed! It was as if the show had grown up and come into its own. The characters had great dynamic and they worked well together. The scripts got sparkier, and there was better humour, drama, and fights.
Oh, and those fight scenes had really improved. Pratt and Webster have really improved and are great fighters. Not to mention the other actors who have made their characters their own. Oh, and their powers have become really useful.
This show has improved sooooooooo much, and its been great to see that the writers have learned from their mistakes and have crafted a sexy, fun, sleek, and a little trashy (which isnt a bad thing) programme which i recommend to adolescents who just wanna chill.
