Unxpected Changes (2001)
Episodes Included: "Strategy X", "The X Impulse", and "Rogue Recruit"
Running Time: 63 minutes
Source: Editorial Reviews/Amazon.com:

The X-Men stand ready to rock your world with three x-ceptional tales charting the struggle of good and evil between two powerful teams of mutant superbeings. Featuring Marvel's television series (seen on the KidsWB Network), this first-ever video continues the saga of Professor Xavier in his search for teens that possess the special gift of an X-gene to join his School for Gifted Youngsters. The professor's goal is to train his band of teens to master their mental powers for good. Meanwhile, his nemesis, the menacing Magneto, and fellow conspirator Mystique are molding their protégés for darker deeds.

In the first episode, "Strategy X," Kurt Wagner, a.k.a. Nightcrawler, joins Professor X at the Institute, but not before a highly charged close call in the Danger Room. In the second segment, "The X Impulse," we meet 15-year-old Kitty Pryde as she discovers her secret phasing ability--the power to walk through walls. Professor X and Jean rush to bring her to the Institute, arriving just in time to save Kitty from a new mutant adversary, Avalanche. Finally, in "Rogue Recruit," Professor X has detected a new mutant named Rogue who is a danger to herself and others after she accidentally steals the memories of a boy at school. Xavier sends his team to rescue her, only to discover that Mystique is competing for control of Rogue's limitless power. --Lynn Gibson

by Spider-Man 8/16/07:

"...X-Men: TAS has The X-Men facing off against Sentinels and a couple of their teammates getting captured or killed. As for X-Men: Evolution it starts off at a High School Football game/Pep Rally. You know exactly what both of these series are about thanks to the first episode though X-Men: Evoluton does evolve as the series progresses."
