Trivia: The reptile-like aliens in this episode are based on the Brood, an insect-like alien species from the comics. Apparently the Fox censors found the Brood from the comics to be too scary for young children, so their appearance was changed and their name was changed to the Colony. Although a Brood alien can be seen in the season 2 episode "Mojovision" and a Brood queen can be seen in the season 3 episode "Cold Comfort."Phaneron
Trivia: At the end of the episode, Archangel tells Psylocke that although he doesn't know why, he was concerned for her safety when she was held captive by Apocalypse. This is a nod to the two having been a romantic item in the comics at one point. (00:19:05)Phaneron
Trivia: The character that is watching Magneto and the other mutants depart is Black Panther, who in the comics is the ruler of the fictional African nation of Wakanda, and at the time of this writing is set to make his feature film debut in "Captain America: Civil War", followed by his own film in 2018.

Trivia: This episode marks the return of the Sentinels. Before Xavier expresses his wonder as to who brought the Sentinels back, Beast relates Morph's predicament to the story of Ahab. In the comics, a character named Ahab was the leader of the Sentinels in an alternate future.Phaneron
