X-Men

Show Summary

They are mutants, genetically gifted human beings - the world's newest and most persecuted minority group. Amidst an increasing climate of fear and bigotry, one enlightened individual, Professor Charles Xavier, has created a safe haven for some of these powerful outcasts. The mutants here are taught to harness their unique abilities for the betterment of the human race. They fight against hostile Government agencies and mutant supremacist Magneto, and his factions, which seek to destroy the human race. Here's a list of the team members, and their mutant powers:

Cyclops:
Team leader. Stores solar energy for discharge as powerful force beams fire from his eyes.

Professor X: Founder of the X-Men. Telepathic abilities. Can read minds and project thoughts.

Jean Grey:
Able to move objects with telekinetic energy. Limited telepathic abilities.

Gambit:
Can charge objects with explosive charges of kinetic energy. Costume is body armor.

Storm:
Ability to control and manipulate the forces of nature.

Beast:
Extraordinary agility and superhuman strength.

Rogue:
Has ability to absorb energy from other living beings, also has power of flight and is indestructible.

Wolverine:
Heightened senses and accelerated healing ability. Implanted indestructible adamantium skeleton and claws.

Jubilee:
Pyrotechnics akin to fireworks.

X-Men originally aired on the Fox Kids Network, the Monday-Saturday children's programming block of the Fox Network. After finishing its run, repeats aired in syndication in the Fall of 1997, then on the UPN Kids block in the Fall of 1998. A return to Fox Kids came in the Summer of 2000, in time for the X-Men feature film. In late 2001, Disney bought Saban Entertainment and gained ownership of this show, along with many others. As such, X-Men has since aired on ABC Family and Toon Disney's JETIX block.moreless

  • an introduction to mutant life

    I will happily admit to people that I love comics (especially for the great art that often features on the covers) but my love for Marvel in particular started with X-Men, and this is the show that introduced me to them! I don't watch many of the comic-turned-cartoons any more, but X-Men will always be a favourite of mine. As a child I loved Rogue, and even back then would 'ship' her and Gambit! This is something I can watch time and time again, and I love the theme tune too!moreless
  • A joke.

    2.0
    For some reason Marvel Comics were favoured as the comics to turn into films in these times. Marvels compeditors-DC Comics, had the more interesting artwork & better titles like The Shadow & a kid I never liked the style of artwork that was a regular feature in Stan Lee's Marvel comic line up. It tended to appeal to kids who were a bit dumb. Overly stylized & lacking thought, Marvel comics kept coming-and like the comics these films kept coming-one pompous over produced bucket of violent goo after another-like a smell that won't go away-literally. This film is no good on so many levels it is hard to quantify-its very violent so its not for kids-it has little value as a coming of age movie so it doesn't work for teens-and it is basically an exercise in dumbness so its not for adults either. So what is it? A perfect example of why shareholders in companies that make films have the right to take those big companies to court for failure to perform. I guess the only reason why actresses like Famke Janssen appeared in films like this is the paycheque-it sure can't be for the artistic self expression-which is a joke. Weeeeeeeeee.moreless
  • The Greatest Super Hero Cartoon of All-Time

    9.0
    I think pound-for-pound the '90s X-Men cartoon was the greatest super hero cartoon ever, even over Batman:The Animated Series. I thought that the X-Men cartoon had the deepest storylines of any super hero cartoon. Also, it had the best animation. The show is better than Batman Beyond, Justice League, Avengers, or any other X-men cartoon that came after. For anyone who loves super hero cartoons, this is the best of the best. The last several episodes SUCKED though. Maybe the last 10 episodes because they changed the animation and voices, and the stories were awful.moreless
