  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The VHS release has long since gone out of print, but it can easily be found on YouTube.
  • No Export for You: The only known dub of this pilot is the Italian dub.
  • What Could Have Been: According to Will Meugniot here, Pryde of the X-Men was testing the waters for full 65-Episode Cartoon and the pilot was going to be a Sentinel story (which apparently would've been similar to the "Night of the Sentinels" two-parter for X-Men: The Animated Series). A new executive at the toy company that funded the show came in and, wanting a more toyetic "good guy vs bad guys" premise, pushed to introduce all of the Brotherhood characters in the first episode, leading to the final script.
  • Writer on Board: Professor X makes specific note that Storm's power to control the weather isn't fully understood. That was a common refrain of X-Men creator Stan Lee, who didn't seem to have the same confusion about how other X-Men could shoot death beams from their eyes or transform sound into lasers.
