In the Marvel Comics universe, mutants, people with genetically endowed superpowers, are a persecuted by a hateful and fearful populous. One shelter from this is Professor Xavier's Academy for Gifted Children. But the school has a secret function as a training centre for mutants to control their abilities so they can function in regular society. It also serves as a secret headquarters of a superhero team, called the X-Men formed both to be a positive example of mutants and as an opposing force against those mutants who seek to force the world to kneel to their perceived superiority. This series recounts their adventures as they struggle to make the world accept them, while battling villains like Magneto, Apocalypse and the genocidal robots known as the Sentinels. Written by

In all versions of the X-Men, except for the movie, Rogue joins the X-Men with the ability to fly, super strength and the involuntary ability to absorb and sometimes also remove the memories, physical strength, and superpowers of anyone she touches. The ability to fly and super strength were taken from Ms. Marvel when Rogue was a villain before joining the X-Men. See more »

This was an exciting and great show. It featured good story lines, great character development, and good animation. This show is definitely better than the movie because it takes it's time to tell us a good story. Also it was quite faithful to the comics.
