Iron Man (1994)

X-Men (1992)

Family Ties - S4-E17

Other mistake: This series is in the same continuity as the other Marvel animated series that aired around the same time - Spider-Man, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, and Fantastic Four - by virtue of each aforementioned show crossing over with at least one of the other shows. However, in Iron Man, Scarlet Witch has an Eastern European accent, and in this episode she has an American accent.

Incursion of the Skrulls - S1-E4

Trivia: This episode is not available on Disney+, presumably because of a movie based on Godzilla that the Skrulls are watching at the beginning of the episode shows the World Trade Center being destroyed.

Iron Man (1994)

The Grim Reaper Wears a Teflon Coat - S1-E5

Other mistake: For the first few episodes of this show, Rhodey is voiced by James Avery. However, there are two scenes in this episode with Rhodey providing voiceover, and you can tell he is voiced by Jim Cummings. Presumably Avery wasn't available to record the dialogue for these parts, so they just went with Cummings instead. (00:10:36 - 00:18:06)

Iron Man (1994)

The Grim Reaper Wears a Teflon Coat - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Tony Stark is suiting up after discovering how the Mandarin stole the Grim Reaper, he is doing so in his armory, which is a cylindrical room several stories tall. When he steps into his armor however, he is now in a lab area surrounded by equipment (as usual, the shot of him stepping into his armor is recycled from the show's Season 1 intro). (00:12:29 - 00:13:41)
