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.

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.

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.

Other mistake: When the Leader is backing away from Cable, his right hand and right foot pass through a puddle of water, but the water does not react to the movements.

Continuity mistake: After Gambit jumps out of the moving hovercar, it comes to a stop in the middle of the road. When the shot changes, the hovercar is suddenly on the left side of the road (note the yellow lane dividers), and is no longer casting a shadow.

Continuity mistake: When Gambit tries to grab the gun, Cable stops him by placing his left foot on top of it. When the shot changes, it is now Cable's right foot that is on the gun. Additionally, yellow lane dividers in the middle of the road disappear when Gambit first reaches for the gun, and then reappear a couple of shots later.

Continuity mistake: When Storm is asleep, her lightning bolt earrings appear to be connected through the back of her earlobes. When she wakes up, the earrings are now on the front of her earlobes.

Slave Island - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When Cyclops is trying to radio Professor X from the Blackbird, there is a window immediately to Cyclops' right. When the shot changes, Jean Grey is suddenly seated on Cyclops' right.

Slave Island - S1-E7

Audio problem: When the giant wave of water from the burst dam is heading towards Cable, Hodge and the Leader, Cable begins laughing maniacally. After the wave crashes down on them and floods the area, you can still hear Cable laughing even though he should be submerged underwater.

Continuity mistake: When the Genosha guard tries pulling a gun on Cable, you can see his headgear only extends down to his jawline and chin. When Cable picks him up and throws him, his headgear is now also covering his entire neck.

Slave Island - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When Cable shoots his exploding plasma blast at the conference table, the blast is shown coming through the window from a downward angle. However, the tree branch that Cable is subsequently shown to be using as his vantage point is lower than the window, so the blast could not have come at a downward angle.

Slave Island - S1-E7

Other mistake: After Cable shoots his exploding plasma blast at the table that Gyrich, Trask, Hodge and the Leader are sitting at, the former three all evacuate the area while the Leader is still shown to be sitting at the table only a moment before it explodes, but he does not suffer any ill effects from the concussive blast or wooden shrapnel.

Continuity mistake: When Gambit is carrying Jubilee over his shoulder, the placement of his hand alternates between being on the small of her back, the back of her thighs, or her butt depending on the shot.

Slave Island - S1-E7

Audio problem: When the decapitated Sentinel body crashes to the ground, the sound of it crashing against the concrete is too soft for its size. It sounds like something slamming against a metal appliance when it should sound more like a car crashing into a wall, only louder.

Slave Island - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: After Gambit unlocks his collar, he lets the collar fall to the ground. In the next shot, the collar is visible on the ground a couple feet in front of him. In the shot after that when he retrieves the gun, the collar is no longer visible on the ground.

Slave Island - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: The keyhole on Gambit's inhibitor collar alternates between being mostly the same yellow color as the rest of the collar, and being gray such as when he unlocks it.

Revealing mistake: When Gyrich walks forward to shake the Leader's hand, the ground beneath them is noticeably shaking, possibly indicating a composite shot.

Continuity mistake: Throughout the episode, the inhibitor collars worn by the captured mutants alternate between having a leveled edge like a hardware nut, to having a rounded edge like a finger ring.

Continuity mistake: When the Sentinel puts Jubilee in the detention box, it is still dark outside. A couple of shots later and there is a considerable amount of daylight in the sky.

Slave Island - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: Before the mutants ambush the guards, they are walking in a single-file line, with Sunfire in front, followed by Jubilee, Mystique, Caliban, an unnamed female mutant, and Aurora. A couple of shots later, either Aurora or her similarly-dressed twin brother Northstar is suddenly at the front of the line.

Slave Island - S1-E7

Other mistake: When Cyclops, Rogue and Jean Grey exit the War Room to depart for Genosha, at the top of the door frame there is a black spec moving around, possibly indicating that there was some debris or a clump of dust on the animation cells or the camera lens itself during filming.

Continuity mistake: When Cyclops hangs up the phone, he is standing next to a table on which the phone is located. When the shot changes, either the table has disappeared altogether or Cyclops has suddenly moved several feet away from it.

Slave Island - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When Cyclops hangs up the phone, the base of the phone shows three rows of five buttons. When the shot changes, there are now only four buttons per row.

Slave Island - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: Gambit and Jubilee are shown to be grouping together what appears to be several pieces of malleable rebar. When the shot changes to Gambit reassuring Jubilee that Storm is alive, he is shown to be working with a single piece of rebar. When the shot changes again, they are back to working with a bunch of rebar.

Slave Island - S1-E7

Other mistake: When Storm sends the Genoshan prison guard flying into the Blob, he knocks the Blob over. The Blob's powers prevent him from being moved, hence why he is sometimes called the Immovable Blob. Other episodes demonstrated his ability to stand his ground against force, such as being punched by Rogue or being blasted by Cyclops' optical beam.

Continuity mistake: When Cameron Hodge is telling Gyrich and Trask about Cable, the books on the table move closer to Hodge between shots.
