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").

In my personal opinion, I find the science-fiction television show, "Mutant X", to be extremely interesting and refreshing because in many ways, individuals all over the world who feel like they do not belong and those who have been shunned by society can relate to these fictional characters. Although each character has his or her unique and separate mutant capabilities, they each have experienced what it feels like to be an outcast and unable to adapt to society's expectations. For instance, Shalamir's parents were scared so they placed her in a mental institution while Emma experienced a very frightening childhood due to her telepathic abilities. I'll admit that the plots may not be exactly be the most intelligent nor featuring the most creative villains, but the characters make-up for it in complex relationships, mutant complications, and other significant and non-important issues. Brendan and Shalamir's "so-called friendship" is a prime example. From Brendans constant worrying and nagging to Shalamir's continuous flirting; its quite obvious that these two both desire much more in this relationship. Even Jessie is beginning to develop intimate feelings for Emma (as demonstrated in the episode where Mutant X rescued a military pilot). Mason Eckhart intrigues the audience a great deal, for every evil scheme that he attempts to carry out un-succeeded has him trying to prove something to someone, like Dr. Adam Kane. Now, I am not writing this to tell anyone to watch or not watch "Mutant X". All I am attempting to tell people is that they should give this television show a try by simply watching one episode. Who's it going to hurt if someone watches a single episode? Its not like its a soap opera!
