The scene grab you asked about is from episode #15, Power Surge, and is
when Jean speaks to Scott through Rogue.
Nice website, by the way! It's always fun to check out what the fans
think of the show, and see what wild rumors are circulating out there
about what's coming up! We're really amping up the action and drama in
season 4, so stay tuned!

On the news page you said if anyone else knew some season 4 info, well I visit X-fan don't know if you know that website.(Good website.)
There are times when the producers of x-men evo chat with members there. A man called Chris Yoast said there would be two new female villians in season 4 on the chat. Also on a thread it was revealed that Omega red would appear in the season as well. I think they said that in a Wizard Mag as well. Visit X-fan. Thanks
Subject: The KMFDM Poster
Date: Fri, 13 Jun 2003
You had a fan mail from a girl named Sara who said there was a KMFDM poster hung inside the Brotherhood boarding house. I never noticed anything like that so I went back and checked some episodes for it. Well it is definitely there and does show up every time the Brotherhood are in their boarding house. KMFDM were as well known for their cover art as their music, so maybe one of the Evolution artists was a fan and sneaked it in there. I attached a picture of it from the episode, Bada Bing, Bada Boom.
Keep up the great work!

Subject: Logan's age
Date: Tue, 17 Jun 2003
In response to the fanmail about Logan's age: actually, he was born James Howlett in the late 1800's. He was also born with retractable claws made of bone but he had no knowledge of their existance until after they had been laced with adamantium. Everyone, including Logan, was very surprised to see he still had claws after Magneto pulled the adamantium out of him.
And to answer Undrhil's question, Lance's helmet, "what's it there for?" I'm pretty sure it's so he doesn't get hit in the face by flying rocks.

Hello! I love your site I go on it at least 10 times a day (that's how obsessed I am with X-Men:evolution) and when I was on your site I happened to notice that no one knows Logan's age and I think I've almost figured
I have learned that Logan's powers make him age slower and that he was also in WWII so I figure that to be in the Army in the U.S. you have to be 18. So unless Logan faked his age to be in the army he had to be at least 18 in 1941 at the earliest so at the latest he would have had to be born in 1923. That means he would have to be at least 80 years old. He could have joined when he was older or he could have joined when he was 18 but later in the war so I'm not quite sure but I'm going to futher inspect the episode "Operation Rebirth" for any references of his age because as far as I know since his powers make him age differently he could have been 60 in those flashbacks!
I hope to know more and I will notify you as soon as I find out anything more and I hope you will do the same, but I figure that he must be somewhere around the age of 80 give or take(probably mostly take) well thank you so much.

Subject: More Evolution music and some other tidbits

Another real life band sort of makes an appearance on Evolution. In the episodes where they show the inside of the Brotherhood's boarding house, you can see a KMFDM poster hung up near the front door. Who are KMFDM? They are a legendary German industrial rock group that have been around for nearly 20 years. They've influenced numerous groups like Ministry, Rammstein, and Nine Inch Nails. It's just one of those little touches that make the Brotherhood so much cooler than the X-Men.
Also, what's with Lance's battle outfit? Well, they basically tried to follow the same design as comic book Avalanche(real name: Dominic Petros). Comic book Avalanche had a large helmet that covered almost his entire face. Since Lance, along with Pietro, is suppose to be one of the Brotherhood's two pretty boys, I guess they had to make a helmet where you could still see his face. Thatís why we get the awful fruit/salad bowl on his head. Hopefully the Brotherhood will get new suits for Season 4.
l love the site!

I was watching the episode "Self-Possessed" on CN the other night. And I was finally able to see the closing credits (now that they are a nice full screen) and they said that the original songs were by Descanso. I checked around on the Internet and found out that the band that everyone goes to the concert to see "The Descanso
Rivets" is a real life band. They have a website and everything Descanso.org. They mention that their music was featured on "Xmen" not "X-men: Evolution" but Xmen. And they don't mention anything else about it. But maybe you could interview them and find out how they got their music on the show and got to be animated along side the characters.
Anyway, real life bands on Xmen, how very Simpsonsesque. Nice website you've got there.

Hey there. I recently found your site and I have to admit that there is a lot about this show that I was clueless about. I do agree with you about the whole Scott and Jean relationship being dragged out for so long, but I believe they had to do it since that is one of the most common problems teenagers face. I mean, the most self-assured person in the world can still be gun-shy when it comes to the opposite sex, so why not play out this
important lesson with the two most visible members of the X-Men? =)
I also hope they do something to bring Kitty and Lance together, but I have a feeling it will not happen. And what is it with Lance's outfit? I mean, why does it look like that? I just don't understand the headpiece ..
what's it there for? =)
Anyway, keep up the good work on the site. =)

Hiya! I stumbled across your site on Google and I reckon its great! I've only recently gotten into the Show so I can't exactly make a huge comment!
Anyway, I saw something on "Spykecam" that you might find of interest and could put on your site as a Fun Fact. The dance that Rogue and Kitty do in the park (before they get attacked by Sabretooth) is exactly the same as Buffy and Faith in 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer', episode "Bad Girls". Rogue does Faith's dancing part, Kitty does Buffy's.
I'm have a Buffy (and Angel) obsession and even taped that part from Spykecam *lol*
Again, great site!

X-Men Evolution is coming to Philippine shores and the hype'll certainly skyrocket once it starts airing the first season here.
I thank you for all the info that you've spread across this xtremely x-men dedicated shrine. I would like to also inform you that I'm in no way ripping you off of your ideas. Rest assured that their for personal use only because I deign from making my own web pages although I've got a lot of ideas but nowhere near to actually materialize them over the internet media.
As much as I'm delighted by the new character designs and a whole new plot and dimension the X-Men has gotten into, I am, however, saddened by the fact that this is but one of the 'multi-layered/multiverse' spinoffs of the franchise. In short, I'm sick, tired and confused about the whole thing going on in Marvel today. The Ultimates, Exiles, New X-Men, X-Men and Uncanny X-Men, just to name afew have gotten me way over my own head as to which series is true to the ingenue that made X-Men famous from the start.
It's not that I'm putting your site down for what it is: another shrine to the X-Men's yet new guises, but I'm trying to get a grip of the reality that Marvel seems desperate to market all these spinoff which have lost the
'x-factor' in them.
So what if Kitty Pryde is more adorable in how X-Men Evolution portrays her. It's sickening to note that she falls for Avalanche (who was an absolute NOBODY and a heck UGLIER in the comics) than with Colossus! (Hey! I'd like to see Colossus in the series in the seasons to come!)
Again, I thank you a lot for the dedication and effort you've put into this site. I guess in the end, you'd probably say that I'm the one who yet need EVOLVING! After all, the first two words of the title of your site says it
all: Beyond Evolution.
More Power and Magandang Araw sa inyo!
