The Phoenix Saga (2): The Dark Shroud - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Gambit is getting ready to attack Dark Xavier, the ticket booth behind him is unoccupied. When Dark Xavier deflects Gambit's kinetically charged playing card to the ticket booth counter, a man is now inside the booth. The bottom center window also goes from being closed to being open.

Savage Land, Strange Heart (1) - S3-E8

Revealing mistake: When Zaladane is helping Sauron escape, she uses her staff to reveal a hidden stairway in the floor. As Sauron descends the steps, the opening fades back into resembling the floor to suggest it is being hidden again, but Sauron fades away as well. It should be that Sauron walks out of view, and then the opening fades back into the floor. (00:02:56)

The Phoenix Saga (2): The Dark Shroud - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Xavier is looking at Moira and Banshee from his window, as the camera zooms in on the latter two, you can see they are facing each other, and Moira has her left arm on or near Banshee's hip. When the shot changes, they are standing side by side, with Moira's arms wrapped around Banshee's left arm. (00:17:41)

The Phoenix Saga (5): Child of Light - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When Phoenix is telling everyone that the crystal has been sealed, Wolverine's lower half has been miscolored. His trunks and boots should be blue, but have been colored yellow, and his legs should be colored yellow, but are flesh-colored. He's also wearing his mask in this shot, but in the next shot he is not wearing it. (00:17:42)

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.
