Professor X/Charles Xavier
Beast/Dr. Henry "Hank" McCoy
Wolverine/James "Logan" Howlett
Apocalypse/En Sabah Nur
President Robert Kelly
Cyclops, Jean Grey, Jubilee and Storm do not appear in this episode.
All Alcolytes (except for Cargill) have speaking lines.
Magneto will next appear in "Beyond Good And Evil (2)". Amelia Voght is next in season 5's "Phalanx Covenant (2)". Fabian Cortez appears next in season 5's "The Fifth Horseman".
A new black & white flashback shows Magneto as a child being torn from his parents by two soldiers during wartime, with no mention of what war or who the soldiers fight for (to downplay the WWII aspects).
Gambit's room on Asteroid M includes a urinal and toilet, a first appearance for such devices on the show!
X-Factor (Havok, Polaris, Wolfsbane, Quicksilver, Strong Guy, and Forge), Mister Sinister, Gorgeous George, Slag, and Ruckus (recycled from the previous show), Gideon & Saul, and Haven & Monsoon are among those who are shown when Fabian Cortez is addressing planet Earth. Other cameos: Mjnari and Black Panther in Africa, and of course, Apocalypse and Deathbird.
The transport capsule, which was orange last episode, is blue here.
The Blackbird is right outside the silo on the asteroid when the warheads are launched. It's then far away, and heading toward the asteroid, in the next shot.
Cortez is clearly pressing the green "Mutant Power ON" button on the remote, despite the orange "PAIN" one being the one he's supposed to be pressing.
Wolverine's mouth area is purple when he's released by Unuscione.
The security footage of Cortez jettisoning Magneto has all sorts of angles and various shots that a security camera wouldn't be able to achieve, especially as nicely edited together as it is!
The doors Rogue & Logan fly by have "A" and backwards "Z" on the other, meaning this shot was mirror flipped.
The buttons in the Blackbird are spelled "Shiar", instead of the proper "Shi'ar".
The "metal armed" mutant on Asteroid M appears three different places in the shot over Cortez's shoulder.
The space shuttle, said to belong to NASA, has "Starcore" written on it (due to footage of it being recycled from "The Phoenix Saga (2): The Dark Shroud").
Three astronauts are with Xavier when he rushes to the shuttle. The third is never seen in the cockpit, nor in the rest of the episode, after that.
Rogue: (rubs Gambit's head) And next time you go gallavantin' around some big ol' space rock, why don't you take someone along to look after ya?
Wolverine: (grabs throat) Ugh. You're makin' me SICK!
Rogue: (grabs Gambit & Amelia) Huh. Just like you to be runnin' around with another woman!
Beast: (seeing missiles launching) Hmm. Not a good sign. A saboteur, like a thoughtful guest, knows when to leave!
Wolverine: (watching Unuscione shield a bomb with her large psionic hand) Hrm. She'd be a handful on a date!
Wolverine: (pops claws) I don't like your FACE, punk.
Beast: One down... 249 to go!
Cortez: You're a liar! Say it!
Gambit: Say it yourself! Ya slimey little crawfish...
Beast: (during shuttle reentry, putting hand to mouth) I should have skipped lunch...
Gambit: Now we play a new game... and it's Gambit's deal. (flings charged playing cards)
Beast: We may not be able to wait for you!
Gambit: So den Gambit become da first X-Man in orbit.
Magneto: You failed Cortez, the Earth's magnetic field has healed me as a mother nurishes her son. Now, I will have my vengeance.
Beast: I believe the proper expression is... Feets don't fail me now!
Once again, versions aired in other countries vary slightly from the one aired in the US. Here's a list of those changes:
- The recap has different angles. Magneto speaking to the world leaders is longer. Scenes where Xavier speaks to President Kelly, and Rogue and Gambit talking to each other are in place, rather than showing the characters on Asteroid M and the build-up to Cortez angering Magneto.
- Title is "Sanctuary Part II" instead of "Sanctuary Part 2".
- Larry Houston is "Produced and Directed by" instead of "Producer and Director".
- The shuttle isn't shown flying away from the Asteroid (yet the exterior of the asteroid is shown, as is the shuttle's booster sound effects).
- Magneto calling out to Xavier isn't intercut with the shot of Charles.
- The recycled reentry shots from "The Phoenix Saga (2)" are absent.
- Several Asteroid M exterior shots are absent.
- The transition to the "people of Earth" address is less stylized.
- Mr Sinister & the Nasty Boys are absent (meaning the X-Factor shot lingers longer).
- Chrome using his powers on the ball and statue lack the enhanced coloring effects.
- The Blackbird's first flight in space is longer, showing the four X-Men in the cockpit, Beast pulling down the gear to "stand by".
- The Blackbird's cloaking shot lacks the elaborated effects.
- Xavier scans the whole Asteroid, including shots of Cargill talking to a few mutants (under a blue sky with clouds, oddly), Cortez looking at the holograms, and the radar screen.
- Amelia finding the tape missing occurs a lot later (between Logan & Rogue breaking into the asteroid and Beast's missile sabotage, instead of alongside her getting into the room).
- Two more costumes are first shown in the "Cortez sees how he'd look via a hologram screen".
- The alarm button is pressed, but there's no alarm sounds, until after Logan & Rogue are knocked out, the total opposite of the other version where the alarms end there.
- Inside of Magneto's dome module as it streaks over the desert is shown briefly.
- Magneto ends both the "I live" scenes faded out of existence.
- The pan up from the nomads has a sparkle in the sky, which floats toward Asteroid M suddenly.
- The playing of the security footage of Cortez jettisoning Magneto is all on one screen, instead of varying overlay shots and angles.
- The missile-check screen is a red grid basic rough of the asteroid with a small insert screen showing seven pencil-looking missiles, instead of an exterior shot, then the missile bay shot with "16% disabled. 210 operable" overlaid.
- Cortez's remarks when being wrapped up are different. He says "I live only for you, my..." instead of "".
- Magneto is shown lifting away from Asteroid M while it's still in space, before it crashes into the ocean.
- Season 3 and listings for the end credits.
Animation Company: Philippine Animation Studio Inc. (incorrectly listed as AKOM).
Original broadcast end-credits-scene: "Dark Phoenix (3): The Dark Phoenix"; Wolverine lands in the duck-filled lake, and Rogue catches Gambit, only to toss him in too.
This episode is loosely based on X-Men (2nd series) #3 (1991).
The special space costumes worn by the X-Men in this episode (Wolverine's dark navy blue, Professor X's dark purple with silver circuitry neck-piece, Beast's yellow & orange space armor, and Rogue's green and black bodysuit)were released as part of the light-up armor run of the toy line.
Fabian Cortez: Vengeance shall be ours!... Saith ME!
Cortez paraphrases the Bible, namely the line, "Vengeance shall be Mine; I will repay, saith the Lord", from Deuteronomy 32:41; Romans 12:19.
Delgado: You called, sir?
The raspy voiced way the big guy says his line is a reference to the way Lurch. the butler, would reply when being summoned, from the sitcom The Addams Family.
Beast: Feets don't fail me now!
A reference to the 1978 jazz album by Herbie Hancock of the same name.
