** In the unaired pilot episode ''Pryde of the X-Men'', Wolverine has a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4d7TEvwznA noticeable Australian accent.]] Now ''[[Creator/HughJackman who]]'' portrays Wolverine in the [[Film/XMenFilmSeries film series]]?

* TheScrappy: Warlock from the "Phalanx Covenant" story arc. He was just an annoying voice attached to a silly alien belief structure that was reminiscent of nothing more so than Rolf from ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy''.

* MagnificentBastard:
** Sebastian Shaw; a would-be usurper comments at one point that trying to outplan him is likely a more difficult task than conquering a country.
** Cyclops during the Utopia period of X-Men history. Not everyone can con an entire army of vampires, but Cyke sure can.
** Magneto has his moments, too.
** Your mileage will ''really'' vary on this one, but Mr. Sinister.
** Chris Claremont can be considered an out-of-character example for all the crap he managed to sneak past his editors, with sneaking in the Mystique/Destiny relationship being his CrowningMomentOfAwesome.

* HoYay:
** Between Colossus and Wolverine. Ultimate Colossus is a StraightGay with an unrequited crush on Wolverine. In mainstream, they're just HeterosexualLifePartners.
** Between Wolverine and Nightcrawler, who are also very close. Whenever someone targets Wolvie's loved ones, Kurt is included.
** Professor X and Magneto have one of the most famous HoYay relationships in all of comics (with a generous dose of FoeYay mixed in).
** Especially in the early issues, Toad's slavish worship of Magneto comes off as puppy love.

*** Comic fans also had a similar experience when [[ExecutiveMeddling Marvel Editors]] decided to suddenly [[StrangledByTheRedString retcon a backstory]] between Storm and ComicBook/BlackPanther, in order to wed them.

** Kitty Pryde angrily pointing at the reader and crying that "Professor Xavier is a JERK!", especially since later writers fell over themselves to prove her correct.

** HypocriticalFandom: And, as a result, there's been a lot of hypocritical claims from both sides too. X-Men fans have been in uproar over Marvel's apparent favouritism towards the Avengers due to Marvel Studios owning and producing the film rights of the Avengers, but a lot of the 'evidence' of this apparent conspiracy to undermine the Fox-produced X-Men films is either questionable at best or outright fabrication at worst, or even things the X-Men fandom enjoy themselves now such as multiple books about their sub-teams, solo-books for their characters, and publicity towards their regular events. Conversely, a lot of the criticisms thrown at the X-Men (being too dark, exaggerated depiction of incompetent or abusive government and law enforcement figures, frequently recruiting former villains, LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, preachy anvilicious messages, etc.) are largely criticisms that equally fit the Avengers too, as well as other big superhero teams like DC's ''Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}}'' and TeenTitans. In general, the only thing that Marvel are doing for one that they're not doing for the other is producing a current animated show for X-Men, which is something they've done repeatedly in the past for the X-Men and only recently started doing for the Avengers (X-Men have had [[WesternAnimation/XMen three]] [[WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution animated]] [[WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen shows]] and an [[Anime/XMen anime]], while the Avengers have [[WesternAnimation/TheAvengersUnitedTheyStand now]] [[WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes had]] [[WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble the]] [[Anime/MarvelDiskWarsTheAvengers same]]).

** Thankfully averted by the digital streaming releases of the show, which uses the Toon Disney re-run transfer of the show where every episode is at the correct NTSC framerate.

Added DiffLines:

* DigitalDestruction: Most episodes of the Region 1 DVD release have a sped-up framerate due to using the PAL transfer. As a result, the characters speak a bit faster than they should, negatively affecting the pacing. As a rule of thumb, if the show's intro shot of Rogue throwing a Sentinel onto its back (using its own robotic tentacles) animates faster than the show's regular speed, then the episode is sped-up.
