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

    • Overrated and Childish

      5.5
      I'm sorry but this show is rated way too high. I think most people are blinded by their nostalgia.



      I didn't watch this show as a child. I grew up watching Batman: TAS and Spider-Man TAS which I absolutely loved and still love to this day. I re-watch those shows pretty regularly even as an adult.



      I tried to watch a couple episodes of X-Men TAS since it was rated so highly on here. I found it pretty unwatchable. It's pretty obvious to me that this show was made strictly for children, without any concern for making it interesting to adults too.



      It is really preachy to kids about accepting and tolerating people who are different from you. This is a good message, but they hammer it in literally every episode. Also, the dialogue is really bad at times and Wolverine is almost useless since he can't use his claws on anyone except robots. There are countless nonsensical moments where the plot or the premise just doesn't add up. It's not a bad show for children, but I can't watch it as an adult.moreless

      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
