The Unstoppable Juggernaut - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When the team arrives at the destroyed mansion at the end of the previous episode, Cyclops' seat is blue, Rogue says "It can't be" while raising her right hand up to her mouth in disbelief, and Wolverine is growling and extending his claws. When the team is shown arriving at the destroyed mansion at the beginning of this episode, Cyclops' seat is now light-red, Rogue says "It can't be" while her arms remain at her sides, and a silent Wolverine is casually putting on his mask and walking towards the exit ramp of the Blackbird.

Slave Island - S1-E7

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. (00:12:15)

Slave Island - S1-E7

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. (00:12:00)

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. (00:08:15)

Cold Vengeance - S1-E6

Other mistake: When Gambit, Storm, and Jubilee get into the back of the taxi, you can see the window seat behind the driver is unoccupied, which would suggest the three of them are occupying only two of the backseats. (00:12:51)

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.

Red Dawn - S2-E4

Question: Does anyone know what the Russian writing says on the wall behind Omega Red when he is standing at the podium and talking about the return of the Soviet Union? (00:15:08)

Chosen answer: It says MPO "First Exemplary Printing House" which is a real printing company in Russia founded by Ivan Dmitrievich Sytin in 1889. There seems to be something about "named after..." as well.
