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.
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.
Continuity mistake: The exploding playing card that Gambit uses to destroy a few Sentinels and draw the rest above ground is cleverly shown to be the ace of spades (also known as the death card in some folklore), but the card he is shown charging up before the Sentinels see it is the 2 of diamonds.
Continuity mistake: When Gyrich is in the car trying to get Trask on the phone, he is shown to be sitting in the backseat on the passenger side (note the windows immediately to his right and behind him). When his driver crashes the car into a tree, Gyrich is shown exiting the car from the front passenger seat.
Plot hole: After Wolverine deduces that Colossus wasn't the person who destroyed the X-mansion and Colossus walks away, Jubilee gets a phone call from Rogue literally less than 30 seconds later informing them that the bank was being robbed by somebody big who is later revealed to be the Juggernaut. Wolverine (now wearing a different set of clothes) and Jubilee are then shown arriving at the bank in Wolverine's jeep just in time to see Colossus being arrested for the crime while claiming he was only trying to open an account and stop the robber. If the robbery was being committed while Colossus was fighting Wolverine, then the police and bank employees would have known Colossus was not the perpetrator, not to mention the bank would have been closed off to the public, effectively preventing Colossus from going in to open an account in the first place. The only way Colossus could have feasibly been implicated would be if he was at the bank the same time that Rogue called Jubilee, which he obviously could not have reached the bank in that amount of time since Wolverine had to drive there.
Other mistake: When the tank falls through the hole in the bridge, the tank's occupants are impossibly shown to be clinging to the edge of the hole at the same time the tank is going over the edge, as if the tank and the occupants were occupying the same space.
Continuity mistake: When Storm is teasing Gambit for damaging the pool table, she is holding a television remote in her left hand, which is yellow (Storm doesn't wear gloves). A couple of shots later, she is holding the remote in her right hand (she had time to transfer the remote to her other hand, so no mistake there), which is colored correctly.
Continuity mistake: When Rogue and Gambit are playing pool and Rogue is getting ready to try and sink the 8-ball, the cue ball is shown to be close to the corner pocket and its rail. When the shot changes, both balls are suddenly further away from the pocket and the rail. It's an instantaneous change, so it can't be a matter of the cue ball rolling.
Continuity mistake: When Cyclops forces his way to the front of the crowd to confront Warren Worthington (Mystique in disguise), the Lady Gardener is standing just behind the mutant with the bowl-cut hairdo. When the shot changes, the two are suddenly standing next to each other.
Factual error: The commercial airplane that Rogue is piggy-backing to Muir Island has no overhead storage bins. Just a shelf running the length of the cabin with luggage stacked on top, which is not something that the FAA or any other national aviation authority would permit.
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.
Factual error: When Rogue is flying the dome up to the top of the mansion, she is flying at a diagonal angle and using a rope to tow the dome behind her. On its way up from the ground, the dome is also at a diagonal angle, when its mass along with the force of gravity and the slow speed at which Rogue is moving dictate that the dome should swing like a pendulum.
Revealing mistake: When Warren's girlfriend is looking for him in his lab, she is startled by Cable who is hiding behind the door and slams it shut once she enters the room. When she is startled and looks back at Cable, the animation is not very fluid. As she is turning around to look at Cable, her "onion skin" form remains, making it look like there are two of her.
Continuity mistake: When Cable blasts Warren off the balcony, Warren falls and drifts into the snow a couple feet, leaving an impression of his shape in the process. When he recovers, he emerges from completely under the snow as if he were buried, but the impression is still there in the snow moments later when he retreats, so it could not have refilled itself with fresh powder and buried him.

Continuity mistake: When Cable grabs Warren through a shelf on his bookcase, he knocks several books onto the floor. When Warren pushes the bookcase over, there is an overhead shot of the floor surrounding the bookcase for several feet in each direction and there are no books visible on the floor.
Continuity mistake: When Warren shoots his blaster through the bookcase, the blast goes through some books/file folders that say "DNA Test 6" and "DNA Test 7" while "DNA Test 4" and "DNA Test 5" are warped out of shape. When he pushes the bookcase over, the two warped books/file folders are back to normal.
Continuity mistake: When Warren's girlfriend is saying "They say you keep a mad scientist up here," the earring on her left ear goes from being comprised of five gray circles, to four, and then back to five in the same shot. Both of her earrings are then comprised of four circles for the remainder of the scene.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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: 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.
Other mistake: When the hotel clerk is checking Gambit, Storm and Jubilee into their room, he determines that they are mutants by seeing footage of Storm using her powers at the Salem Center Mall from the very first episode. While it's not unreasonable that security footage from the mall could exist showing Storm use her powers, the footage also shows an extremely close zoom-in on Storm's left eye, which is extremely unlikely, unless the security camera somehow guessed she was about to activate her mutant powers.
Plot hole: Towards the end of this episode, Jean Grey nearly falls to her death when a concussion blast from Cable's gun knocks her off a cliff, only for her to be saved at the last moment by Rogue. Apparently Jean Grey and the writers for the episode forgot that her telekinetic powers give her limited flight ability as well as the ability to slow falls, both of which she has demonstrated in other episodes.
Plot hole: Magneto states that he went to Washington, DC to witness Senator Kelly's assassination. But Magneto had no way of knowing about the assassination plot. Mystique was the one who was attempting to assassinate Kelly, and Apocalypse was the one who carried out the order. At this point in the show, Magneto had not worked with either Mystique or Apocalypse, and it's highly doubtful that Mystique would leak the plot, since it was supposed to be covert.
Continuity mistake: When Cyclops is running through the mine to search for Wolverine and Gambit, he uses his visor to track their location. When the shot changes to a first person view through Cyclops' visor, the background is merely moving up and down. If he was running as the previous shot had shown, the objects in the background from his point of view would become larger as he got closer to them.
Continuity mistake: Jubilee destroys a Sentinel by tricking it into colliding with a train car full of tar and then using her powers to blast the car and cause tar to spill all over the Sentinel. After Jubilee is rescued by Rogue from the Sentinel that grabbed her from behind, the Sentinel that Jubilee destroyed, as well as the train car, have disappeared.
Continuity mistake: Magneto reveals to Senator Kelly that he went to Washington, DC to personally witness his assassination. The flashback to the previous episode reveals that Magneto was watching Mystique (masquerading as Gambit) attempt to assassinate Kelly and the real Gambit's intervention through a window. Magneto can be seen as plain as day watching in the window in the flashback, yet in the actual episode, Magneto is never there. The design of the window is also different, as well as the color of the curtains. The room itself also appears to be smaller in the flashback.
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 Professor X, Cyclops and Jean Grey enter the room where Senator Kelly was abducted, Cyclops goes over to inspect the hole in the wall and Professor X states that his watch has stopped working. Cyclops, still on the other side of the room, asks why that's important. When Professor X drops his watch and it clings to his hover-chair to demonstrate that it's been magnetized, Cyclops is suddenly behind Professor X.
Continuity mistake: The final scene from the previous episode is reprised in the beginning of this episode, yet some of the dialogue is different or omitted altogether. In Part 1, when Storm says "We all have dark sides to our souls," Wolverine responds by telling her to speak for herself and states he's more suspicious of Bishop than anybody. Also, when Rogue walks in and asks who Bishop is, before anyone can tell her, Gambit announces his arrival. When Bishop accuses Gambit of being the traitor, Gambit tells him he thinks there's been a mistake. In this episode, Wolverine never states that he is suspicious of Bishop, Professor X tells Rogue who Bishop is before Gambit walks in, and when Bishop accuses Gambit of being the traitor, he fires his gun at him before Gambit can even say anything.
Continuity mistake: When Jubilee blasts Sabretooth through walls of the War Room and outside, it is shown to be on the mansion's ground level. Many other episodes however depict the War Room to be in the underground levels of the mansion, specifically in the episode "The Unstoppable Juggernaut" where the War Room is still intact after the mansion is destroyed from the ground up.
Continuity mistake: When the team arrives at the destroyed mansion at the end of the previous episode, Wolverine is shown to be growling and extending his claws. When the team is shown arriving at the destroyed mansion at the beginning of this episode, Wolverine is shown to be casually putting on his mask and walking towards the exit ramp of the Blackbird.
Continuity mistake: When Gambit is avoiding the electrified coils in the Danger Room, his normally black and red eyes are colored like a normal person and his gloves are entirely fingerless whereas they are usually only fingerless for the thumb, index and pinkie fingers.
Continuity mistake: When Sabretooth is sitting in the hover chair in the War Room, the chair is shown to be hovering up and down in the wide shot, but when a closeup of Sabretooth is shown, the background behind him remains stationary, indicating the chair is also stationary.
Continuity mistake: When Rogue goes to touch Wolverine with her bare hand to stop him, she is shown removing the glove from her right hand. After Wolverine collapses, Rogue is now missing the glove from her left hand, and her entire left arm, including the hand, is solid green.
Continuity mistake: Immediately after Storm, Wolverine, Beast and Morph exit the Mutant Registration Center, Beast and Wolverine are shown to be running alongside Gambit and Cyclops. However, mere moments later, Gambit is shown to be blowing up a security fence so Storm, Wolverine, Beast and Morph can rendezvous with Gambit, Cyclops and Rogue.
00:06:45 - 00:07:20Phaneron
Plot hole: Wolverine bails out on the mission to destroy the files at the Mutant Registration Center to instead go look for Jubilee after she goes missing. When the rest of the team arrives, Wolverine is already there waiting for them. They flew to the Mutant Registration Center in a jet and their mission briefing heavily implied that they needed to leave immediately, so there is no way Wolverine could have arrived before them if he was off looking for Jubilee first.
Continuity mistake: The Sentinel that is intercepting Jubilee when she is running back home to check on her foster parents is initially following her along the sidewalk from behind, but suddenly catches up to her in a perpendicular path from the street. There are only two Sentinels shown in this scene and the other one caught her from the front as it turned a corner, so it couldn't have been a different one.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the previous episode, Rogue says to Cyclops "You look nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs," to which he responds, "I just wish I knew what was happening in there." Cyclops then immediately looks to his right and sees military vehicles approaching and says "We've got trouble." At the beginning of this episode, the same scene is shown again, only this time Gambit says "If that was me in there you wouldn't have to worry" before the military vehicles are shown to be arriving.
Continuity mistake: Gambit is the central character in the previous episode "Slave Island", and is on the Blackbird with the rest of the team when they arrive at the destroyed X-Mansion. However, the very next episode begins where "Slave Island" left off, and Gambit is conspicuously missing from the episode.
Other mistake: In the scene where Professor X uses his psychic powers to deduce that Jubilee is trying to escape the mansion, there is a semi-dissolve edit that simultaneously shows a close-up of Professor X with his left hand on his forehead and a counterpart image of Jubilee hiding around the corner. If you look closely at Professor X in the counterpart image of Jubilee, his left arm and hand are shown to be on his hover-chair's armrest and not his forehead.
