  • Season 1 Episode 1: Night of the Sentinels (1)

  • This episode features the first appearance of the X-Men (Wolverine, Beast, Cyclops, Storm, Jean Grey, Gambit, Rogue, Professor Xavier, Morph, and Jubilee), the Sentinels, Henry Peter Gyrich, and Senator Robert Kelly.

  • Magneto's cadre of villains in the opening credits sequence includes Thunderbird (or Warpath), Pyro, Mystique, Sabretooth, & Avalanche. Also included on his side are Juggernaut and Gargoyle (an old Incredible Hulk villain), who aren't mutants in the comics, yet seem to be considered such on the show.

  • Cameo appearances seen in the Mansion's monitors include mutants Domino (the white woman with the eye-spot), Cannonball (the blast-bottomed guy), Sabertooth (the feral creature featured on the news), Magneto (using his magnetic powers with his back to the camera) and an ad for the "Genosha Beach Inn", which will play a larger role in the episode "Slave Island."

  • (Here's the Sentinel's mutant-scan readout)
    Mutant File: 051063-244
    Subject: JUBILEE
    Name: Jubilation Lee
    Height: 5' / 152 Centimeters
    Weight: 90 lbs / 40 Kilograms
    Race: Chinese-American
    Address: 764 Lucille Court West

  • Rogue's comment about putting her boyfriend in a coma at 13 will be shown to us in the season 1 episode "The Cure".

  • The Sentinel scan read-outs for Storm, Rogue and Gambit read "Ht. 5'11, Wt. 127 lbs"; "Ht. 5'8, Wt. 120 lbs"; and "Ht. 6'2, Wt. 180 lbs", respectively.

  • While being held prisoner by Guyrich, Jubilee is held down by three straps in addition to the wrist and ankle restraints. When she escapes in the next episode, the straps are strangely absent.

  • Footage culled from the Sentinel's head in the Mansion includes a shot of Jubilee on her bed crying. Unless the Sentinel staked her out prior to the earlier scene, it couldn't have gotten that shot (since it landed AFTER she was out of her bedroom entirely), nor that angle (which would be from an interior wall).

  • The Sentinel scan read-out calls Jubilee by her code-name, yet lists her "real name" as well, long before she's ever an X-Man to HAVE a code-name. It's her nickname, true, but why would the registration agency call her anything but her full name?

  • Morph's wearing his jacket when he gets off the Blackbird. It vanishes through the rest of the show, until the final scene. Is it part of his shapeshifting, as well? The "gas gun" he uses on the guard also makes no other appearance, meaning it's either a goof, or he can "morph" part of himself into a gun, and fire off bodily gas out of it!

  • Season 1 Episode 2: Night of the Sentinels (2)

  • The President of the United States during the first season is an unnamed woman.

  • Morph "dies" here, though things are not what they appear to be, as will be shown in next season's "Till Death Do Us Part (1)"

  • Names listed on the "Mutant File" screen: Michael Booton, Geri Bryan, Andy Hamilton, Chris Hamilton, Ray Sherman, Corbin Went, and John Wesley.

  • When Rogue incapicates Wolverine, she takes off her right glove. After he passes out, she is holding her left glove in her left hand (she's still wearing the right glove). And her sleeve extends past her wrist to become another glove (a one-piece garment perhaps).

  • During the final battle against the Sentinels, Storm blasts a Sentinel, destroying it, and a second one fires at her before flying after her. When it fires, the beams are coming out of the top of the Sentinel's hand, even though the cannons are on the Sentinel's palm, as it is with every Sentinel.

  • When addressing the nation, the President said that mutants attacked the Federal Security Agency, not Mutant Control Agency. The question is, is this a goof, or was the Mutant Controlo Agency actually part of the FSA, and not private as Professor X had thought?

  • When Morph morphs from the soldier back into himself while standing in the doorway, his shadow is that of Gambit, with the trench coat shape visible. But when the scene cuts back around, it's just plain Morph, with his regular short coat on.

  • Rogue's costume (specifically, the X-patch) is miscolored when she flies toward the camera after Cyclops tells Gambit to blow up the fence.

  • Gambit's eyes are colored like a normal human (with whiteness instead of black) when he charges up his card and blows up the fence, and when doing the "five card stud" against the Sentinels.

  • Professor X's tie goes from blue & black to yellow & black back to blue & black in one scene in the Cerebro room.
