  • Quotes

    • (cut from ABC Family)
      Juggernaut: You can't stop me, Spider-Man, but I can stop you!

    • Spider-Man: (about the Juggernaut) One thing's for sure: he'll never sneak up on you.

    • Professor Xaviar (to Iceman and Firestar): We are happy to have you back, even for a short visit.
      Firestar (to Professor Xaviar): It's wonderful to see you again Professor.
      Cyclops (to Firestar): Firestar, over here.
      Firestar (to Cyclops): Coming Cyclops.
      Cyclops (to Firestar): This is our other new member, Wolverine.
      Wolverine (to Firestar): Hiya doll (sticks his adamantium claws into an apple), wanna piece of fruit.
      Storm (to Firestar): I've heard so much about you, but I'd like to hear more. What was it like to grow up with your fantastic powers?
      Firestar (to Storm): Oh it wasn't easy. (thinking) Mostly because of a girl named Bonnie.

    • Juggernaut (to Spider-Man): I am the one who discovered the lost city of Cyttorak. It's mystic gem transformed me into the human Juggernaut, the only one who could destroy the X-Men.

  • Notes

    • The reason why Wolverine was disposed of quickly by The Juggernaut is because his trademark adamantium claws weren't suitable for younger Saturday Morning cartoons in the 1980's, might not be good for younger veiwers. That's a disappointment to comic fans at the time. He didn't appear in the episode "The X-Men Adventure."

    • ABC Family version removes Spider-Man's second appearance in this episode, when he escapes the massive rock pile the Juggernaut buried him under and lands in a subway tunnel.

    • The X-men featured in this episode are Storm, Cyclops, Wolverine, Professor X, and Angel.

    • Magneto and a Sentinal are seen in a flashback when Firestar was with the X-Men.
