* CreatorWorship: Chris Claremont is an odd case. As noted elsewhere on this page, there is a vocal contingent of diehard X-Men fans online that absolutely ''revere'' the man, elevating him into a SacredCow for his legendary 16-year run on the X-Men and brushing aside his more hit-or-miss work on the franchise afterwards. On the other hand, he's become almost infamous in the fandom for his love of FetishFuel and tendency to mire his works in KudzuPlot. Perhaps most puzzling, though, is that his greatest contribution to ''X-Men'' as a whole, emphasizing the "mutants-as-minority" message that would go on to become a cornerstone of the entire franchise, is largely forgotten, with many fans assuming it has just always been part of the X-Men from day one. In fact, the original incarnation of the X-Men as imagined by Creator/StanLee and Creator/JackKirby was little more than an AlternateCompanyEquivalent take on Creator/DCComics' ComicBook/DoomPatrol, and the very reason the mutant concept was originally created was as an easy HandWave to explain the source of the X-Men's superpowers (as opposed to the elaborate backstories that were then the norm for superheroes). While prejudice against the mutants was there almost from the get-go, it was not nearly as fundamental to the stories before Claremont.

** Mystique crossed it in ''Dream's End'' (murdered Moira [=McTaggart=] and stabbed Rogue), then double downed after Xavier and Rogue forgave her during ''Blinded by the Light'' and ''Messiah Complex''.

** Mystique crossed it in ''Dream's End'' (murdered Moira [=McTaggart=] and stabbed Rogue), then double downed after Xavier and Rogue forgave her during ''Blinded by the Light'' and ''Messiah Complex''. Really, she did it much earlier, brutally murdering [[ComicBook/MsMarvel Carol Danvers']] boyfriend [[ShapeshiftingSeducer while impersonating her]], but that was in a Miss Marvel story rather than an ''X''-book.

It wasn't until Claremont took over the series that the mutant metaphor was introduced.

* NarmCharm: The cheesy voice acting often serves as one of the major draws for the show. Storm in particular is celebrated for being an over-the-top [[LargeHam Mistress of Pork.]]
