X-Ternally Yours - S2-E6

Trivia: This episode depicted Bella Donna as being Gambit's former fiancée. In the comics, the two were actually married. This change was likely made for the show due to it being too mature of a theme for a kids' show for Gambit to have both an estranged wife and an extramarital relationship with Rogue.

The Dark Phoenix (2): The Inner Circle - S3-E12

Trivia: The main antagonists in this episode as well as the episode that follows it are the Inner Circle. In the comics, the Inner Circle are a sort of clandestine group of mutants that operate within an elitist social group known as the Hellfire Club. Due to censorship reasons, the Hellfire Club aspect of the group is not acknowledged. Its members are visually based on famous actors. Sebastian Shaw is based on Robert Shaw, Harry Leland is based on Orson Welles, Donald Pierce is based on Donald Sutherland, and Mastermind in his Jason Wyngarde persona is based on Peter Wyngarde. The White Queen/Emma Frost is based on the character Emma Peel from the British television series "The Avengers."

The Phalanx Covenant: Part 1 - S5-E1

Trivia: This episode has a similar plot to "Invasion of the Body Snatchers," and in particular the scene where Warlock deduces that President Kelly has been assimilated by the Phalanx because he knew of Warlock's association with Beast without Beast having told him is a reference to the 1978 film where it is deduced that the police are pod people when they acknowledge the name of Donald Sutherland without him having told them.

Love in Vain - S4-E14

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."
