* 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

** The X-men team's reaction when they see ''Juggernaut'' pounded unconscious in a crater.
-->'''Iceman:''' Wait a minute... Juggernaut? As in the ''unstoppable Juggernaut''? The ''totally invulnerable'' Juggernaut!?
-->'''Beast:''' That would be the one.
-->'''Shadowcat:''' So what could do this to him!? (cue giant monst emerging from the city) Never mind...

* MaleGaze: There are a few shots where the camera angle is so that about 1/2 of the shot is a female character's buttocks, the other half is the background and the other characters in the scene.

* TruerToTheText: Despite the fact that the series has had some flaws as well as the cases of AdaptationDistillation, AdaptationalHeroism, AdaptationalVillainy, AdaptationalWimp, CompositeCharacter, DemotedToExtra, and NotAsYouKnowThem, ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen'' is ''much'' more faithful to the source material than [[WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution one of it's predecessors]] and [[Film/XMenFilmSeries the live action film series]] combined mainly through the fact that it faithfully adapted storylines from the comics (such as the ''[[ComicBook/TheDarkPhoenixSaga The Phoenix Saga]]'', ''[[ComicBook/DaysofFuturePast The Days of Future Past]]'', etc. The series would have adapted the ''[[ComicBook/AgeofApocalypse Age of Apocalypse]]'' storyline if not for its cancellation) and used a ''premise'' that was identical to the source material.

* AdaptationDyeJob: In the comics Iceman has brown hair, but in this series he has blonde hair (just like he did in ''[[WesternAnimation/SpiderManandHisAmazingFriends Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends]]'') - and almost looks like he could be Angel's younger brother.

** Likewise, the Stepford Cuckoos are shown as villainous members of the Hellfire Club, despite being students at the Xavier Institute in the comics.

** ''The Phoenix.'' This is far from the first adaptation to do so, but it's worth mentioning that in the comics, Jean as Phoenix was good but AntiHero-ish, had to resist darker impulses but stayed in control (she was actually Phoenix for ''quite'' some time), and even saved the universe. It took the Hellfire Club's interference to cause her to become Dark Phoenix. This version uses TheThemeParkVersion where the Phoenix is a 100% Bad Thing. Of course, the Hellfire Club ''was'' trying to control the Phoenix in this version, but it wasn't quite the same as [[TheIllusionist Jason Wyngarde]] and [[MindControl Emma Frost]] putting her under MoreThanMindControl and pretty much breaking down her self-control bit by bit until we get a monster.

** [[spoiler:Despite what she had done, Emma was never evil at all, and she was far from what you could call a villain. Everything she had done was in order to save the world from the Phoenix Force. Too bad the rest of the Hellfire Club has [[TakeOverTheWorld other plans]]...]]

* BigBad: [[AIIsACrapshoot Mastermold]] is the BigBad of the BadFuture Xavier is stuck in, while [[WellIntentionedExtremist Magneto]] and Senator Robert Kelly largely take the role among several long-term villains [[spoiler: Though the Inner Circle also has a pretty good claim on driving a lot of the plot]]. The SequelHook set up [[spoiler: Apocalypse]] as the BigBad for an aborted second season, although Sinister basically served as DragonInChief in this respect for the show.
