The world of the X-Men, filled with mutants with extraordinary powers, has been the cornerstone of the Marvel Comics universe for decades. With its varied characters and deep plotlines, the franchise has remained a favorite since its launch by the creative mind of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby back in 1963. Over the years, Marvel ran into some financially tough times and had to find a means to save its struggling company from bankruptcy. Since the company could not afford to create its own superhero films, they sold the rights to the X-Men characters to 20th Century Fox in 1994.
Since then, the X-Men have gained a new audience through numerous animated series and the launch of the live-action X-Men film franchise in 2000. After the debut of the series, Marvel Studios decided to partner with Tribune Entertainment and Fireworks Entertainment to create its own world of mutant superhumans: Mutant X.
However, since its initial pitch and conception, the Mutant X TV series has been bombarded with numerous lawsuits and restrictions. Despite the drama, series creators developed their own unique world where humans had their DNA genetically modified after birth, resulting in 4 main categories of mutants.
Set in a format that tackled a new villain each week, Mutant X soon gained a unique fan base of its own outside of the Marvel world.
