** They also invent the term 'advanced mutant signature', to describe people who acquired powers later rather than being born with them, used to describe Juggernaut. They show also features ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, ComicBook/NickFury, and Gauntlet, three characters who aren't mutants but are superpowered to some extent (Cap's a genetically enhanced super soldier, Fury's immortal, and Gauntlet is a member of the Inhumans, a subrace of humans who live in the antarctic), though only Cap is officially explained, Fury's powers are only slightly alluded to by the fact he worked with Cap and Logan in WW2 despite looking to be in his fifties at the most, and Gauntlet can be assumed to be a mutant.

* Toad has nothing in common with his comic book counterpart outside of his code name, powers, team affiliation, and attraction towards Wanda.
* Speaking of Wanda, she has very little in common with her comic book counterpart outside of her name, powers, association to the Brotherhood, and relation to Magneto and Quicksilver.

* AdaptationalNiceGuy: Due to the series' [[AgeLift changes to certain character's ages]], ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} never falls in love with teenage ComicBook/JeanGrey, and therefore never has the heated rivalry with ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} that is the cause for much of his {{Jerkass}} behavior in the comics (though the two did briefly have a leadership struggle). Also, while he always was fond of young mutant daughter figures, it would take decades of CharacterDevelopment for him to be anywhere close to willing to play father figure with Storm and Xavier for an entire group of mutant children before any school for gifted youngsters or superhero team was properly established.

** In the comics, Pietro and Wanda both only became villains because Magneto saved their asses and they owed him; both of them eventually became aware of his true nature when they joined the Avengers. In the show, Pietro is a [[TheSociopath literal sociopath]], while Wanda is a perpetually angry and dangerously unstable girl with sympathetic, but NOT heroic qualities.

Scott and Avalanche definitely hated each others guts at first, then Scott and Duncan, later. Even Rogue and Jean, over Scott.

* DoubleStandard: One can argue this concerning the Brotherhood. Tabitha freely abuses Toad and Blob, and the other boys to a lesser extent, but each time its treated as a comedic moment.

So, mildly abusive behaviour is (rightly) bad if you're a guy, but if you're a girl its OK to abuse your male 'friends'.
