In the Marvel Comics universe, mutants, people with genetically endowed superpowers, are persecuted by a hateful and fearful populous. One shelter from this is Professor Xavier's Academy for Gifted Children. But the school has a secret function as a training center for mutants to control their abilities so they can function in regular society. It also serves as a secret headquarters of a superhero team, called the X-Men formed both to be a positive example of mutants and as an opposing force against those mutants who seek to force the world to kneel to their perceived superiority. This series recounts their adventures as they struggle to make the world accept them, while battling villains like Magneto, Apocalypse and the genocidal robots known as the Sentinels.

Alternate Versions

The first season of X-Men, when aired on FoxKids, featured CGI character profile models during the end credits. Later airings replaced these credits with those similar to season 2. When the fourth year episodes began, short clips from past episodes were filtered into the credits for the original airings. When the final year's worth of episodes aired, the series recieved slightly altered intro animation and music. When reruns of the series moved over to UPN for a short while, all of the aired episode intros and credits were replaced with brand animation, featuring Cable among the regular X-Men. See more »

User Reviews

Great show
1 July 2002 | by TheMan3051See all my reviews

This was an exciting and great show. It featured good story lines, great character development, and good animation. This show is definitely better than the movie because it takes it's time to tell us a good story. Also it was quite faithful to the comics.
