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").

If you're into guys, then this show might be worth watching for the occasional shot of star Victor Webster without a shirt. That's about the only redeeming factor that I can find for the show. Even allowing leniency for superhero/comic-book physics, I still find the mechanics of the storylines to be obnoxiously bad most of the time. I'm a big sci-fi and X-Men fan, and I was excited about this series when I first heard about it. However, the last time I sat through an episode I told my roommate that if he ever saw me watching this show again to take the remote from me and start hitting me in the head with it until I got up to change the channel.
