No Mutant Is an Island - S5-E4

Character mistake: When Cyclops demonstrates his power to Rusty to show him that he's also a mutant, he shoots an optic blast at a building and blows a gigantic hole in its facade. While the building had the appearance of being condemned, Cyclops had no way of knowing whether there were squatters inside. He could have seriously injured or killed several people for all he knew.

Slave Island - S1-E7

Plot hole: After Storm's attempt to escape the Genoshan prison is thwarted, she ends up in the ocean right at the shoreline of the beach, where she is captured by a Sentinel. Aside from the fact that it makes no sense for a Sentinel to be hiding in the ocean in the event that a mutant tries to escape the prison, there is absolutely no way that a two-story tall robot could hide in the ocean right by the beach, as the water would be way too shallow. You can even see that the water level only goes up to the Sentinel's ankle area when it is standing upright in the ocean. (00:03:15)

Out of the Past (1) - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: Wolverine first enters the sewers by ripping away a fence in the subway. When Jubilee and Gambit follow him, the fence is still intact. When they get closer it is torn again. Odd, really, because on the whole this show has few continuity errors, like self-mending clothes in other cartoons.

Come the Apocalypse - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When Rogue is flying toward Adler's lab, you can see the building is several stories off the ground. When she flies in through the hole in the roof, the interior of the lab is on the top-level, whereas the previous episode showed that the lab was on the ground level. (00:12:55)

Come the Apocalypse - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When the three horsemen are climbing onto their mechanical horses, Famine's horse is in the middle, and Pestilence's horse is on the right. Once all three have all been individually shown to be mounting their horses, Famine and Pestilence have swapped places. (00:06:08)

Captive Hearts - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Gambit is saying "Someone may be tracking us," the snaps on both shoulders of his jacket are colored blue, when they should be the same brown color as the rest of his jacket. (00:11:45)

Captive Hearts - S1-E5

Character mistake: When Rogue asks Storm what her plan is for dealing with the closing walls, Storm says "You three stop the walls, I shall slow the ceiling." Besides Storm and Rogue, Jubilee, Jean Grey, and Gambit are also there, so Storm should have said "You four stop the walls." (00:03:12)

Whatever It Takes - S2-E3

Plot hole: After Magneto and Xavier discover that their powers have vanished, Mr. Sinister is shown to be watching them through surveillance footage, zeroed in on their faces from a straight angle. At this point, Magneto and Xavier are standing at the edge of a cliff in the Savage Land, which is a jungle hidden in Antarctica. There's no conceivable way Mr. Sinister could have security footage of them from where they are located. Any camera would have to be mounted onto a tree, and the cliff is at a considerably higher elevation than the jungle itself, as well as a considerable distance away. Even if Mr. Sinister was able to zoom in on them from such a distance, the treeline being lower than the cliff would only allow him to view them from a low angle, and that's only if the cliff wall didn't obscure them.

The Cure - S1-E9

Plot hole: After Wolverine tells Gambit that he only knows how to pick pockets and steal candy from babies, Gambit attempts to retaliate by kinetically charging one of the bricks Wolverine is working with in order for it to blow up in his face. Anything Gambit kinetically charges makes a high-pitched humming sound, and Wolverine possesses a superhuman sense of hearing, so he should not have been caught unaware by it. (00:06:55)

The Cure - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: When Rogue puts the dome in place, if you look closely you will see that the dome is resting on thin air (note that you can see the sky through the platform she sets it on, and when she sets it down, the underside of the dome is visible). (00:06:15)

Slave Island - S1-E7

Plot hole: When the Leader says "Take me to my car at once!", one of his guards goes to open the door to the room only to have Cable shoot the door with his plasma rifle. The Leader then says "The other way you fool!" and everyone in the room starts running for the windows that Cable shot out a few minutes earlier, which happened to be the only other way out of the room. As evidenced earlier from when Cable shot the windows out, that particular floor appears to be 8 stories up, so if everyone in the room exited through the windows, they would have all fallen to their deaths as all of them were regular humans with no superpowers.

Slave Island - S1-E7

Factual error: When Professor X is calling Moira McTaggart in Scotland, the phone number he uses is shown to have only dialed the exit code of 011, followed by a fictional seven-digit number with a 555 prefix. Since he is calling from the United States, he would have to dial the country code (44) and area code for the right part of Scotland. Plus UK numbers at that time had at least 9 numbers. (00:08:20)

One Man's Worth: Part 1 - S4-E1

Character mistake: When the civilians are fleeing the coffee shop, there are two spelling errors on the coffee shop's marquee. Firstly, the name of the coffee shop is Rip Van Winkle, but on the marquee, Winkle is spelled as "Winkile." To the right of that, Coffee House is spelled as "Coffe House." (00:16:55)

Days of Future Past: Part 1 - S1-E11

Show generally

Question: Does anyone know why Gambit was featured less and less in episodes as the show went on? He was one of the most popular characters in not just X-Men, but all of Marvel Comics around the time this series first aired, so unless it had something to do with his voice actor's contract, it seems odd they wouldn't have utilized him more.

Answer: Chris Potter, the original Gambit voice actor, did indeed quit the role in the 4th season. His last episode was The Phalanx Covenant Part 1 so it seems reasonable that Fox would limit the use of the character even though it was recast. It doesn't appear that Potter left the role due to animosity, he stated in an interview that he wished to play Gambit in the first live action X-Men film.
