Trivia

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").

Mutant X Lives!!
31 October 2001 | by (Georgia, USA) – See all my reviews

I first want to start out by saying that Mutant X is an excellent show. The element that drew me in was the mutant angle of the show. I have been a follower of the X-Men for years and even though Mutant X is not a part of the X-Men universe I was interested. I have not been disappointed by the show. Mutant X has a lot of adventure and action but it also has emotion and intrigue that make it dynamic. It is nice to have a chance to get to watch a show about mutants on a weekly basis and I look forward to seeing each new episode. I find it somewhat liberating to watch Mutant X because I can start out fresh with all the concepts and characters.

Adam, John Shea, is very interesting because he is human. Adam is the founder and leader of Mutant X. He has great compassion for the members of his team. It is his mission to take care of those who are mutants. He has a very good reason why he wants to help mutants.

Shalimar Fox, Victoria Pratt, is intense because of her feral nature. Shalimar is a tough fighter who protects the members of Mutant X like a fierce mother bear.

Jesse Kilmartin, Forbes March, is fascinating because of his ability change the nature of his body at will. Jesse is the good-hearted boy next door type that truly wants to make a difference for mutants.

Emma deLauro, Lauren Lee Smith, is intriguing because of her telempathic ability. Emma is a caring person who is exploring her possibly enormous gift.

Brennan Mulwray, Victor Webster, is electrifying literally. Brennan has the power of electricity which matches his personality. He is a bit of rebel which will help Mutant X.

Mutant X has an enemy in a human named Mason Eckhart, Tom McCamus. Eckhart may bear a striking resemblance to Andy Warhol but he is a dark individual who wants to hunt down mutants.

I believe that Mutant X will continue to grow and change. It is at the beginning of its story and the story has a lot of directions that can be explored. The same can be said of the characters. I feel that Mutant X is a great show that will get stronger and even better with every episode.
