Revealing mistake: When Quicksilver is fidgeting inside his containment shell, the animators neglected to properly sync his body movement. You can see that his shoulders are not "connected" to his arms, as if his head and shoulders were separated from the rest of his body.
Other mistake: Rogue states that this is Jubilee's first Christmas as an X-Man. However, Jubilee was already a member of the X-Men when Senator Kelly declared his candidacy for President in season 1, and the season 2 premiere episode showed him being sworn-in as President. Election Day is in November and the President is sworn-in in January, so Jubilee should have already had at least one Christmas as a member of the X-Men.
Continuity mistake: Magneto straps Wolverine to the port side of a boat and then drops the boat on a warehouse. When Gambit is freeing Wolverine, Wolverine is suddenly on the starboard side of the boat. After Gambit frees Wolverine, they are both shown to be on the boat's port side.

Revealing mistake: When Mr. Sinister is mocking Jubilee, take a close look at his neckline as he moves his head. The animators moved his neckline as he moved his head, but his shoulders stay in place, so his head and neck look like they are floating above his shoulders.
Factual error: When Rogue attempts to correct the space shuttle's flight path, she has to let go because of the intense heat due to re-entry. Indeed, a temperature as hot as a shuttle in re-entry (upwards of 3,000° F) would have completely melted through her gloves, yet when she lets go, they only have a little smoke coming off them.
Factual error: When Moira is calling her ex-husband Joe in Edinburgh from the Blackbird phone, she dials a typical U.S. seven-digit phone number (it looks like she dials 555-1238). However, even assuming she wouldn't be required to dial an exit code from the Blackbird, a typical Edinburgh phone number would have more digits, along the lines of +44-131-XXX-XXXX.
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."
Continuity mistake: There are two continuity errors regarding the final shot of Wolverine in this episode. Firstly, his arms are colored yellow. Secondly, his costume has magically mended itself after being torn to shreds by his mutation earlier in the episode.
Other mistake: When Scarlet Witch falls from the cliff, she lands on a hover craft and kicks its pilot off. The pilot is then immediately show falling into a pond. It then takes Scarlet Witch several seconds to save Quicksilver who was free-falling from the same cliff. Given how fast the hover craft pilot fell to the ground, Quicksilver also would have fallen to the ground before Scarlet Witch could have caught him.
