** Mags himself: in the comics, he's a WellIntentionedExtremist or an AntiHero depending on the [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor decade]]. He was last wa-ha-ha evil in TheSeventies, and the last time he was an enemy was done in such an OutOfCharacterMoment that it was {{Retcon}}ned into being someone else ''immediately'', making a ''1993'' storyline the last time we saw him as anything but his normal portrayal (half the team wants to trust him, the other half says "yeah, but you don't know '''how''' bad he was when he was bad," and his WildCard moments don't make anybody any more comfortable.) and it's not like nobody provoked him then.[[hottip:*:Of course, he gave 'em plenty of reason to think they had to strike first... it's complicated.]] WATXM Magneto appears to be similar to comic Magneto at first but at heart is as monstrous as it gets, more like his sixties/Morrison/Ultimate incarnations.

* AdaptationalBadass: [[ZigZaggedTrope Zig-Zagged]] with ComicBook/{{Magneto}}. While Magneto in the comics is a very powerful mutant who has the ability to generate and control magnetic fields, he has the tendency of having his powers decreased in innumerable adaptations (both animated and live action) and is never as powerful as his comic counterpart through being restricted to hurling around girders as well as being unable to resist telepathic attacks for long periods of time without his helmet. In this adaptation, Magneto is just as powerful as his comic book counterpart and possesses more resistance toward telepathic attacks.

** Jean gets the [[NeverLiveItDown/ComicBooks sadly usual treatment]] of existing solely for the sake of the threat of Dark Phoenix and is reduced to living MacGuffin.

While the show itself proved to be too good/bad to last, its legacy did live on in a very unusual way. Two years after the series' cancellation, Marvel launched a new [[ComicBook/WolverineAndTheXMen comic series of the same name,]] which again focused on Wolverine re-building the school and reluctantly assuming the leadership role of to a group of X-Men (albeit under different circumstances). While some character have been know to make the jump [[CanonImmigrant from an adaptation to its source material]] before, this is one of the few time a source material has come to mirror the ''premise'' of its adaptation. Sometimes, you just can't keep a good (or bad) idea down.

* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: The series features a PlotHole during a WholeEpisodeFlashback which shows UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}} X-Men battling Magneto. Iceman is a teenager and significantly younger than the founding X-Men in the show, so it makes no sense for him to have been part of the team when they were all teens themselves. He'd have to have been a ''child'' when Xavier recruited him for any of that to make a lick of sense. What's worse, in the flashback he actually looked ''older''.
** Theoretically, it could be that this Iceman is an entirely separate character, explaining the "snowman" look and age discrepancy - after all, it's incredibly common for mutants to have similar powers/themes across all X-Men media. This, however, raises the question of why we never learn what happened to the original Iceman and no one ever mentions him.



* PinkMeansFeminine: flashbacks show Jean Grey wearing a pink shirt (with blue and purple hair bands) as a teenager. Also Kitty is seen wearing pink at least once.

** The series also portrayed the characters that were inaccurate to their comic counterparts in both ''Evolution'' and the film series as being much more accurate to their comic book counterparts in the terms of their names, powers, physical appearances (as well their costumes), origins, motivations, alignments, and primarily the groups that they were associated with (for example, the characters, such as Magneto, Scarlet Witch, Gambit, etc, featured in ''WATXM'' are much more faithful to their comic book counterparts than they were portrayed in the films and ''Evolution'').

Added DiffLines:

* WorthIt: In the end of "Wolverine vs. Hulk", Wolverine gets angry when he found out he was used by Nick Fury to basically clean up one of his messes. He then purposely punches out Bruce Banner to bring out Hulk to troll Fury in response. Wolverine gets sent flying and crashing a distance away by Hulk, but still smirks as he can only imagine what Fury and the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents are going through with Hulk.
-->'''Wolverine:''' Have fun, Fury.

* FantasticRacism: As per usual of the X-Men plot. Mutantkind are forced to deal with the racist acts against them by humans.



* FatBastard: Mojo, as you'd expect, is a gigantic blob of pustulant yellow fat. Blob of the Brotherhood qualifies as well.

** A terrified Jean was on the run from the MRD and gets cornered in a hospital. A nurse she knew finds her and [[FalseReassurance assures Jean that everything will be okay]]. Then the fat bitch calls out the MRD agents to their location moments later.
